LOL.... It's November 15th already?

congrats on being first. did you write and record this in three hours?

I like to be early for some things.... but yeah..... the point is wait so everyone else has the time and opportunity to get their songs done.... then we all post in that time window.

from the OP " You can post earlier if you have it ready but generally, no sooner than November 15. We want them all posted at about the same time. "


cool tune though...

Oops!

My apologies never read the original post correctly blush

Ah well

Yes I wrote and recorded this in 3 hours (can't you tell smile )

Although it doesn't include a holiday it tells about winter coming, which I thought would be ok.

Hi Bob,

Thank you for taking a listen.

Hi George,

I love what you've done with this song. Quite honestly, I'm sitting here at the moment green with envy that you can whip up something as good as this in 3 hours!!!!!! I'm stunned. This is absolutely my new favourite "George Nelson / Mikee" song.

All the best,
Noel

Hi, George !:))

This was a most interesting tune !:))
It really has that minor feel in it
that gives us the hint of the forecoming
cold and dark times !:))


Cheers
Dani

Hi Noel,

Thank you for taking a listen.

You will know that sometimes he just taps you on the shoulder and Hey Presto! a song just happens, well that was what happened to me.
I have no idea where it comes from (which sounds very strange) but, that was the way this song came to life. confused

I admit that at other times if I try to force a song out it just will not happen, go figger!

George

George - I keep trying to listen - but Soundcloud is acting up on yours - and yet, I can play others. I sure wish they would get that fixed! I'll try again later....

Great song, loved the mandolin!
Really enjoyed your voice and the idea of your song…

…today my car was covered with ice – definitely a Frosty Morning! ;-)

George,

It finally played for me. Usually does eventually. Can't figure out what the cause (or fix) might be.

This is really well done. A tight lyric. A good vocal. Nice choice of RTs. Very good mix. One of your best!

PG Music News
Customers LOVE Band-in-a-Box® 2021!

Check out some of the latest Band-in-a-Box® feedback we've received:

"There's a saying 'Give a man a fish, feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, feed him for a lifetime.' That's exactly what my friend did in 1990. He taught me how to use BIAB and I've used it hundreds of time to do arraignment and to jam with any style band."

"Love BIAB. I use it daily. Their support is great too!"

"RealTracks are amazing!!! I use BIAB for backtracks in my solo act... Still using the basic package and it's all need..."

"I have used Band in A Box for many years. If it would have been around when I was young, I would have been a much better musician. I use it for all my songs I have written and recorded. With Band In A Box I can sit in my room and sound like a whole band without having to put up with them!"

"If you know something about music and take the time to learn the program, you can make it do some amazing things. It is a great help to songwriters who want to demo their song without paying for studio time. It makes changes and tweaks much easier as well."

"Been using it for so many years. It's a great tool. The instruments that I don't have or play make up the void and it saves so much time. I use this program for every song I write."

"Great tool for the songwriter!"

"An essential part of my studio! I write songs on piano, but I'm not a pianist by a long way. BIAB is like having a roomful of session players in your studio, and just the simple act of taking your basic idea and hearing a skilled pianist play it presents so many new ideas and options you hadn't thought of."

"Powerful, easy to use, inexpensive and they even split the modest payments up if you want. No complaints. Lots of satisfaction."

"I added a steel guitar to a fully produced original. He followed every change like he was in the studio reading the chart. Fascinating technology!"

"I have used it to make backing tracks for six CD's with about 12 songs on each. They make a great gift!"

"It's simply a necessity - buy it now - the staff and support do a great job as well!"

"A great tool for us songwriters!"

"I LOVE Band-in-a-Box!"

"I see it as a very worthwhile investment. In fact, from initial purchase about 8 years ago, using the backing tracks I have made, my income from that investment has returned over 5,000% on the investment!"

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."
