Thank you very much, Scott. Glad you liked it!

To you and everyone else: I will be getting back to listening to everyone's tunes this week. I have a pre-op appointment in the morning, surgery to be scheduled and I'll be here a lot, given the fact that I will be out of commission to go to work for a minimum of 3 weeks.

Thanks again, Scott. Your kind words are very much appreciated! smile

Mike,

I liked your opening. A nice arrangement throughout. Bob does a cool violin, there. Some of the leads are a tad low. Cool harp.

A fun rocking tune. Sounds like you guys had fun doing it. It's agreat thing when that "shows through".

Hope we'll see more from you. And.. get some rest!

(chicken soup, ice cream).

Mike,

Cool rockin' shuffle. I liked it!
I agree with Floyd on the leads comment, especially the first slide solo.

Heal Up!

Mike, Now that's the way to rock. The leads need more volume, other than that the mix sounds good. Thanks for posting. Keep writing and recording. Good luck on the surgery. Tom

I really enjoyed this "tight sounding" rocker.

Nice job on the writing...

The Band-in-a-Box® 2010 "Plug-in" Mode! #TBT

Did you know... the "Plug-in" mode was first launched with the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2010 for Windows!

With the 2010 "Plug-in" mode, Band-in-a-Box® opened as a small always-on-top window, and acted as a plug-in for your favorite DAW/sequencer, so that you could Drag-and-drop MIDI and audio (WAV) tracks from Band-in-a-Box to your favorite sequencer. You could work in your favorite sequencer, type a progression in Band-in-a-Box, and then simply drag the track from Band-in-a-Box to your sequencer’s track at the desired track and bar location.
