Hi Charlie.

Got my foot tapping all the way through.
Enjoyed the suspense the chord structure introduces.
Good one.

Cheers.

Very unique!
And as Noel said, this was a real pleasure to listen to.

Best regards.

Yes, I came across the progression while auditioning styes in another project and it felt at once like such a great hook, I stopped the other project and put this together around it. It sounds so 'right' I'm surprised we don't hear it often in contemporary Bluegrass. Thanks for listening and commenting.

I thought I had commented on this already because I've listened to it a few times...actually, a good number of times.

I have to say it sounds authentic AND new at the same time to me. I'm not going to claim to know the genre as well as many here, but I do listen to it a fair amount. It's just such a great style of music.

I think the newness for me is the chord progressions that are being discuss. I personally, really like the choices you made. I like the unexpected that works!

Well done my friend! And, now for another listen...

Thanks for taking time to listen and comment Josie. I appreciate your kind words about my singing and it only accentuates how sorely we've been missing you as well. Gosh, and we've been missing your fantastic vocals. The fact we both posted a bluegrass tune is a testament of how the stars align on occasion. Hope things are such that we'll be hearing more of you here on the forum.

Yummy banjo licks with a major 7th chorus. Short and sweet - I enjoyed it, all right.

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Very cool back track. Banjo was excellent. As Tom said chord changes were very interesting and gave the song a very original sound and feel.

Sounding great Charlie! Love those non traditional major 7ths chord in there.

Those first chords sound like a cross between a Bm and a Gmaj7th somehow. Maybe my ears are playing tricks on me. What was the exact chord notation you typed in BIAB in the first two to four measures?

Sounds great!

Love that picture too. Where did you get that?

The first four measures are Gmaj7|Cmaj7|Gmaj7|Cmaj7| (input into chord chart GJ CJ)

The photo is an internet download from a google search "free and royalty free banjo images"

Thanks for listening. Glad you enjoyed the song.

This is really fantastic. Could be the theme music for a movie.

Come to think of it, maybe it ought to be the theme music for a movie.

Great contribution, nothing less.

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

Summary of changes:
Added: Additional dialog available for detailed information in the StyleMaker (fields for memo, examples, and other parameters). These are set in the StyleMaker (more dialog, a button called "Style Memos etc").
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.
