Nice job on this tune. Good topic and well arranged and produced. Might have a touch too much reverb here and there (early fiddle?) for that more contemporary country sound -- but it is a pretty minor point. Nice change into the chorus/bridge. Pretty good singing, too. Excellent mixing of BIAB sounds. This is a good a song as I've heard around these parts.

A really groovy track. Are the handclaps from RealTracks?
I especially like the backing vocals.
Good voice.
Thumbs up.

Fun to listen to. I did notice a change in the tone of your singing at the end which I am not sure helped the song finish up uniformly, perhaps this was intentional. In any event, it's a very good song.

My thoughts also . . . but very nice overall. I love the lyric but I love any lyric that comes from the heart.

Hi somar,

I really enjoyed listening to this. It's very engaging in every way - music, words, performance, production. What a wonderful lifetime gift to give you son.

Regards,
Noel

Yep, it's all said, but also wonder about the hand clap (I don't think is a RT) but it lends a little "(River Dance" type of groove to it.

I really like this!

Somar,
Welcome to the forum. Thanks for sharing your music.
I sure liked the song. I especially liked your vocals (both lead and backing tracks). I think the hand clapping was a very nice touch.
We hope to hear lots more from you!

Somar,

I almost missed this and I'm so glad I didn't.

You've got the gift. This is top shelf. What a great contemporary sound. Personally I wasn't crazy about the switch in the vocal and switching into the long ending tag of "baby you've got to help yourself". I think it would've been more powerful to stay with your hook - jmho. But what a great song and production. And I love your voice.

Two big thumbs up here. One of the best songs I've heard on this forum.

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows was released in December 2018, and included many new features and enhancements - like the enhancements we made to our Notation window!

These include:
-Pressing the space bar plays the song from the current location.
-Double-clicking on the Standard mode Notation window (or on the time line in Editable or Staff Roll mode) plays the song from the current time location.
-The right-click menu in the Editable or Staff Roll mode Notation window has an option to change the current beat resolution. Previously, the only way to do this was to right-click on the time line.
-Clicking close to a stave line will put a note on the stave line instead of between stave lines. Previously, you had to click extremely close to a stave line to insert a note on it.
-In the Notation Windows Options dialog, the clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
-The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
-You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
-A new track type (Drums) is available for the Melody and Soloist tracks.
-Holding down the Ctrl key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
-There's a keystroke entry mode -the "N" mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, up/down cursor to change its pitch, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
-A new button in the Print Options dialog lets you quickly print a "chords only" fake sheet. You can also access this from the right-click menu on the Chord Sheet.
-You can now edit any track in the Event List Editor. When the dialog opens, it will show you the MIDI data in the current notation track.


There's detailed information on our 2019 notation enhancements here: Band-in-a-Box® 2019 New Feature - Notation Enhancements

My Favorite Things - Nudge Chords in Band-in-a-Box®

Love this time saving feature.

Ever fill in the chordsheet fully or for part of song, and then discover you want to add or take away an extra beat or more somewhere in the chordsheet.

Nudge chords (melody) from the Edit Menu is your friend here, the dialog will give you all the options either to remove or add beats where its needed.

Love it.
