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.

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....

Hi Floyd,

Don't know what to say.

Have you tried clearing your cache?

Let me know by PM and I will email it to you if all else fails.

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!

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

What's the most surprising RealTrack Instrument that you've come across?

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 Mac Update Ready!

Just because Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac is here doesn't mean we've forgotten our 2019 users!

If you're still using Band-in-a-Box® 2019, make sure you download the latest patch update (b324) for an updated splash screen (macOS 10.12 and 10.13 users), smoother Song Titles dialog, access to your (purchased) RealTracks Set 328, and we've corrected the reported issue with opening songs from older versions of Band-in-a-Box in the 2019 version.

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!
