Sound good, but the two lead guitars are "stepping on each other". Might be a good idea to eliminate one or the other for the sake of coherency.

And, is this songtitle about going to a place called Soon?

"Gone to Soon"

Or is it about not hanging around long enough?

"Gone Too Soon"

The groove allows one to play around and solo over it easily. Its really easy to get carried away and end up with confusion.

I agree with Mac, in that, the guitars are all over each other.

Couple of things I noticed.

1. Be sure to tune the guitars before you start recording. Even check it throughout the session. I keep a tuner handy and check it periodically as I record.

2. Choose one lead/solo and pull the others out. I call it "hard enveloping" ... in any given song, you will rarely hear multiple solo's happening at the same time.... not counting the Grateful Dead.

I often have two or more instruments ready to solo.... but when it comes down to it out of the two or three or four, I select only ONE to solo in any given section. IF... If I have two soloing in a section it is a case where one plays a lick and then the other back and forth as complimenting each other's work.... I have a new tune (for the song challenge) that actually has 2 working as I described.... fiddle and mandolin swapping licks in a solo....

I like what you have, but you might wish to revisit the mixing and you will be amazed at how much better it sounds. Cleaner, clearer, and you will be able to hear each instrument in the mix.

Gone Too Soon

Thank you for your comments. I appreciate the input. I redid the guitar track(tuning) and the mix. I clipped out most of the slide and what I left in I tried to make more subtle.
It is funny the name of the song was intended to be "Gone Too Soon", but I never noticed that I had spelled it "to". The mind plays tricks...


Guenter thank you for your comments...

Regards
Scott

Hi Scott,

You're a very skilful musician. I don't play guitar but I could imagine that my fingers would be somersaulting all over fretboard to get all those notes that you played.

A very pleasant listen.

Regards,
Noel

Major improvement.

This sounds so much better. Guitars are in tune, and it's easy to hear the theme in the lead.

Way to go

Dani, Danny C, Mario, Noel thank you for your comments it means allot to me..

Mac and Herb
I am so glad you like the new version. This feedback is excellent. When I decided to start playing again my first goal was to improve my playing skill and next to see if it was possible to write a song. Your feedback on my songs is gently nudging me in the right direction. All I can say is thank you for taking the time to do this. I am so glad I joined this forum...

Scott

Scott,

Sounds good to me. Since the "theme" was fairly constant throughout, I felt it should have been about 3:30 (about a minute shorter). The older I get, the shorter my attention span, ya know...

Keep 'em coming!

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit for macOS Catalina

With Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit for Mac we added Drum Notation Support, and we didn't stop there! Other Notation Enhancements added in this new version are:

-A new track type (Drums) is available for the Melody and Soloist tracks.
-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.
-Holding down the control key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
-In the Notation Window Options dialog, the clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
-Notation is much clearer, not jagged, on retina screens.
-The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
-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.
-There is a keystroke entry mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, M to enter a third note, up/down cursor to change the pitch of the highlighted note, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
-You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
