Hey All,

Here's a new song Josie and I put together. This was produced with BIAB/RT's and was mixed in GarageBand. It's called "Long Time" - we hope you enjoy it...

"Long Time"

A black crow flying
In a trickle down rain
Every now and then
He'd fly my way again
See the lines in the road
Kick an old tin can
Got my mind on you
And my feet on the land

A white winged dove
On the edge of seventeen
One brave love of mine
Came to visit in a dream
I packed my bags
Take a journey with you
That sky between us
Fades from black to blue

Chorus:
Long time like a January song
Long time and far from home
Long time and cold to the bone
Long time

A snowbird high
On the evergreen
Shadows on the ground
And nothing in between
All those years ago
Had my eyes on you
Some things turn to gold
Or sing the church bell blues

Chorus: repeat

Bridge:
The seasons pass
Shadows into light
Time stands still
In the dark of night

Break

Chorus: repeat x2/end

Another great song from a great team.

Don't take this the wrong way, Bob, but when you first come in singing, I thought your voice had a very Stevie Nicks quality to it at first, but then became more Dylanesque afterwards. But then I heard the reference to Edge of Seventeen, s I don't know if you were channeling a little Fleetwood Mac in this song, or what.

I really liked it.

Hey John,

Thanks for your kind words. Josie and I really appreciate your support. Yes, the second verse gives a little nod to Stevie - so cool you picked up on that...

Hi Bob and Josie,

What impressed me most about this song were the harmonies, the chorus and the arrangement. I found myself singing along with the last chorus and I wasn't even conscious that I'd started doing it. That tells me you that you've got a good, strong hook happening. To my way of thinking, this is a top shelf effort whichever way I look at it.

All the best,
Noel

#TBT Band-in-a-Box Finds!

I don't know about everyone here, but now that I've settled in to our "new normal" I've taken to rearranging and dusting off many things in order to keep busy and productive!

I'm picking up old hobbies, picking up clutter around the house, and as it turns out - finding forgotten picks!

We snagged these gems many, many, many years ago after The NAMM Show one winter. Check out the old Band-in-a-Box logo! Click here...

Have any of you come across something nostalgic like this these days? Let's see it!

Review - Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac … WOW!

"Dr. Dave" Walker (Dr. Dave On Music) recently received Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac, and he absolutely loves it!

He's written his thoughts in detail, which can (and definitely should) be read here: Band-in-a-Box 2020 for Mac … WOW!

"Band-in-a-Box 2020 is a huge advance over even BB2019, with easier to use, more powerful features that give you more information while creating more musical results. You have never had more control of more features which are now much easier to find. The move forward with this version is astonishing. Again … WOW!

My very highest recommendation. Just upgrade! Or if for some strange reason you don’t have it yet, BUY THIS ONE! It will change your musical life!"
-"Dr. Dave" Walker

Thank you for the review, Dr. Dave!
