This is a remake of a song Pat & I wrote back in 2011.

Hope you enjoy it.

Drums, Bass, fiddle, piano and B3 are BB/RB tracks.

Guitars and mandolin are live in my studio by me.

Herb,

Really enjoyed the very special intro and ending. The mix of your mandolin,
piano, violin adds so much to the song.

Your vocals are fantastic.

First class music, Professional vocals.

Kudo's to your performance and also Pat's writing with you.

Very professional sounding to my ears!

My only suggestion for change:
There were places where the mandolin and fiddle were playing nearly identical notes. Since the real track is outside your (total) control, but the mandolin is totally IN your control, it would have been interesting to hear the mandolin play harmony to the fiddle's notes.

But, if that's the worst problem you have, life is GOOD! eh?

You, sir, are a songwriter.

I really enjoy your songs. I agree with the comments ahead of me.

There is a little hint of Willie here and there in your vocal that is very cool.

I like the lines: Memories are like watercolors left out in the rain,
A fading glimpse of scenes from yesterday

The guitar and mandolin playing really got my attention - nice work! I love the bit at 0:35 where the mandolin leads into the piano roll.

I second the comment on the Willie Nelson vibe - nice fit.

Nice work!

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

Herb/Pat,

Great "sound" - meaning the overall effect - very well put together. Good mix. Your vocal is interestingly unique - the kind that used to make people stars (it might still these days, but to me, everyone sounds exactly alike and I can't tell one from the other).

The sound on the acoustic lead is phenomenal.

Wow.... I am humbled by your comments and observations. Thank you all for listening.

I have been following the comments on my smart phone but have not been able to log in to reply (senior moments with the log in data) but this laptop has it saved.... so I figured I'd better take the time to log in and think you all for listening.

If any of you have any specific questions, please feel free to ask and I will do my best to help.... nothing I do here is a secret... well.... some of it is but most is common knowledge and simply in the methods I use....

Again, thanks....

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.
