John,

Very nicely put together video and heartfelt song tribute to the fallen heroes from your town.

Nice mix and vocal too. You didn't mention what tracks you used but they sound good.

John,

This was/is a terrible tragedy for very brave firefighters.

Your music would be loved by them all.

We live in in Northern Calif. back in the sticks. Just a matter
of time before we are hit. Live and Dread every summer for about 6 months.

This is a great honor you have bestowed upon these folks and their families.

Thanks for your efforts and hard work, sharing with us all.

Hi John,

I agree with everything that's been said. This was a pleasure to listen to and to watch. It's a wonderful tribute and a very polished presentation.

All the best,

John,
A wonderful tribute for those 19 heroes. I hope each one of their family members hears your beautiful song and treasures it forever.
This is why we write, sing, record, and publish our music. To be able to do something special for people. To maybe make things a little bit better somehow. We should all take inspiration from your work.
Thanks so much for sharing.
Mike

Floyd Jane: Thanks for your comments. I sure appreciate it.

seeker: Thanks for listening. Yes, it makes you nervous to live in the dry west. We had two fires this year: one about 6 miles from our house and the Yarnell Hill fire about 35 miles away where the Granite Mountain Hotshots died.

Noel: I appreciate you listening. I always enjoy your songs.

boehm: Thanks. Some day I hope to be as inventive as you.

SpaceDog. Yes, I hope the families and other firefighters find something for them in the song.

John

Excellent tribute and song. Fire fighters and police are the 2 most under recognized jobs, but without both the world would be chaos. Thanks for sharing!

Uncommon RealTracks Instruments for Band-in-a-Box®

Today is Uncommon Instrument Awareness Day.

Examples of "uncommon instruments" include anything from Spoons to the Wheelharp to the Singing Ringing Tree, and more!
(there's probably more instruments out there that we DON'T know than we DO know)

Although our RealTracks collection doesn't include many 'uncommon instruments', we do offer some pretty unique choices!

On top of the usual varieties we offer for Piano, Guitar, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet, Bass, Tuba, Trumpet, Trombone, and more - our RealTracks library also offers a nice selection of Shakuhachi and Kalimba - there's even a Koto RealTrack included in Set 212!

Kalimba: RealTracks Set 271
Koto: RealTracks Set 212
Shakuhachi: RealTracks Sets 193 & 212

Review - Loops-with-Style PAK 2 for Band-in-a-Box® 2020

"Dr. Dave" Walker is at it again! You may remember his recent reviews of both Band-in-a-Box 2020 for Mac and Xtra Styles PAK 9 - now he has something to say about our Loops-with-Style PAK 2 - check it out: Click here to read...

With money being tight for most musicians, this is a wonderful gift for those on a limited budget. At $29, it offers months and years of fun and experimentation, bringing many ideas to fruition as songs with enough variation so that your audience doesn’t jump to "aw, that's a computer!" while still keeping the power of the software in your hands.
-"Dr. Dave" Walker

Thank you again Dr. Dave for the great review!
