Josie,

It's really great to see you posting a song again! I've definitely missed having you around smile

I really enjoyed this. I'd love to be able think of some of the lyrics that seem to come so effortlessly to you. Try as I might, though, they never seem to pop into my head. You're a very talented songwriter!

I'm looking forward to more smile

All the best,
Noel

Hi Josie,

Yes, it's REALLY good to see you posting songs again. Not been here much myself, since
the new year, but didn't want to miss your return.

This is absolutely brilliant, both in it's concept and it's execution. I smiled all
the way through. (Twice.)

A perfect backing track and wonderful vocals, with harmonies which are just inspired.

It's great to have you back and I'm looking forward to more songs from you this year.

Cheers, ROG.

Your use of those RTs shows a genuine appreciation for the nuances of arranging and mixing a bluegrass based tune.

The imagery rich lyric was terrific and we really liked the stopped vocal section.

Well done!!

J&B

PS There was a foot log on our family farm to get to the best fishing spot.


Thank you Janice and Bud! I appreciate that alot.

Josie,

I've been wanting to comment on this, and have neglected in doing so.

This is a very enjoyable listen... I'm a huge fan of story songs, anyway. This a well-crafted work, all the way around.

This patch includes some RealTracks audio updates we have made since the release of Band-in-a-Box 2018. 2018 users should be sure to download the latest Band-in-a-Box 2018 update patch (519), as that patch includes the bulk of the fixes for RealTracks released with 2018. This is a larger download than typical because it updates the Vocal Oohs and Aahs RealTracks audio files. There is more information and Audiophile patches available here.

Summary of RealTracks Audio updates:

- Bass, Acoustic, AmericanaSlow128Byron Sw 040
- Bass, Acoustic, RockabillySwingByron Sw 190
- Bass, Acoustic, BluesyPopByron Ev 100

Added: Help Video button Added to the Audio Harmony dialog.
Improved: ABC opening improvements with some accidentals, and leadin bars that occur in middle of song.
Improved: Audio harmonies now used Improved algorithms, and can be easily set using N voices above, M voices below (and have additional functions like duplicate melody, and dup. melody octave below).
Improved: Lyrics will be now read from .mid files that used to be karaoke files (.kar) and got renamed somewhere along the line.
Improved: Support for RealTracks that should be transposed only lower (ie heavy metal guitars) and for future Improved metal guitar comping.
Improved: The Audio Harmony Dialog has been rearranged to be more intuitive when using Band-in-a-Box Intelligent Mode.
Fixed: Audio harmonies might be missing some notes.
Fixed: Audio harmonies would be generated with the wrong notes if selecting a range of audio in the middle of the track.
Fixed: Band-in-a-Box might crash on bootup with error "Read Beyond end of file".
Fixed: Band-in-a-Box should show message if the latest VJT application is not installed when the user tries to render videos.
Fixed: File > Open Special > Open Audio was importing audio instead of opening it in a new song.
Fixed: In the Bar Settings window, "Chordsheet and Notation - Start a New Line" should say "Notation - Start a New Line".
Fixed: It was not possible to record audio using WAS audio drivers if "Output always on" was disabled.
Fixed: Misc. RealTracks updates.
Fixed: Quicklist drums picker sometimes showing too many drums in the list.
Fixed: Redundant flash messages were showing.
Fixed: Removing a custom drums from a track would still display Drums as the name of the loop in the track.
Fixed: Rendering audio while there is a region of bars highlighted in the chord sheet might cause a crash.
Fixed: Saving a MIDI file would fail unless saving as type 1.
Fixed: Some 12-key RealTracks were incorrectly set to allow transposition.
Fixed: The Audio Harmony dialog needed some hints.
Fixed: The Audio Harmony dialog was missing the new Band-in-a-Box Intelligent Mode.
Fixed: The VJT application should print out its version number in log files.
