Michie, I really liked this one. The fiddle break is especially interesting. Sort of a break tempo. Good job.

Hi, George !

This sounds like an real "oldie"
and IMO I think this could have
gone surprisingly well as a
barbershop arrangement also ?
I enjoyed this one really much !

Cheers
Dani

This is so cool Michee.

Love the ol' soft shoe vaudeville vibe.

Fun listen. Enjoyed it.

Very well done, love the style and your voice is outstanding in it. Kind of has old country sound, like Jim Reeves to me. Thanks for sharing!

Don - Fit like min'

I tried to make a style and song that would sound kinda like a old Dixiland style.
I failed to do that but quite liked this style.
I added the fiddle to noodle around just to add interest.
-------------------------------------------------------
Dani - Fit like min' (this means - in Doric - How are you doing) smile

Thanks for saying that it sounded like an Oldie.
I was trying to get the oldie sound.
I may try your suggestion about a barbershop arrangement. smile
------------------------------------------------------------
Mike B - Thanks for taking a listen.

And of course for commenting that you liked it.
----------------------------------------------------
Josie - Hi Thanks for taking a listen.

Glad you liked the ol' soft shoe vaudeville vibe. smile

Enjoyable and interesting listen. I agree with the couple of "soft shoe" references. Very good use of the fiddle. Thanks for the post.

George,

It's all been said but the only thing missing that would have had me sitting in that old theater was a little crowd noise in the background.

As already in envisioned you in that "seersucker suit" with a straw hat just soft shoeing around that stage.

Good job.

Later

I can see the fiddler playing when I listen to the song.
Never thought about a theater act laugh

Thanks for taking a listen.

PG Music News
Band-in-a-Box® - Boxing Clever - Sound on Sound #TBT

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® is more than 30 years old? I stumbled across this 1990 magazine article explaining the relatively new program, and think it's an enjoyable read for any Band-in-a-Box user - it really shows that we are always listening to user feedback when developing our program!

Read the article: Boxing Clever: Band-In-A-Box Software

A few of my favorite statements:

"The intention of PG Music's Band-In-A-Box package is to couple that speed and convenience with the improved flexibility of the personal computer. Versions are available for the Atari ST, Mac, and PC compatibles. Have the programmers succeeded? And can they rid themselves of the stigma of the auto-accompaniment section? Given the above state of affairs, the first hurdle that the program has to overcome is one of acceptance and, frankly, a name like 'Band-In-A-Box' is a bad start."

(I think our name was a great start!)

"The final results are, to say the least, impressive. Band-In-A-Box achieves something that most hardwired auto-accompaniment sections have never been able to do - inject a degree of feel into the music. It really does sound more human than so many of the computer generated pieces I've heard."

"...I'm quite convinced that PG Music will have a winner on their hands. This is one piece of software that you can get more out of than you put in."
