That's about as spot on as it gets Floyd. A great song beautifully delivered with engineering to match. Loved it.
cool

Top notch. You nailed the mix and the Real Tracks editing. I didn't notice any wayward notes, just a fine song and performance.

Critter - I seem to be going the other direction - LOL - getting more and more rock'n'roll smile

I don't generally chose a Style. Although, it looks like I may have loaded:

_PBALADM.STY (Med PopBal w Dreamy ElGt (85 RS))

..for this. That's what in BIAB when I call this back up. The song was done at 125 - so the RTs were all 120 versions. Take a look at the list of RTs I put up. That's why I put them there - so people can get a similar sound if they chose to...
----------------------------------------------


John - That put a grin on my face! Your productions are so top-notch - if I can get such a response from you... then I gotta say I'm pleased... thanks!


olemon - thanks... appreciate that!

Hi Floyd.

Been away and nearly missed this one, but I just had to give it a bump.

Great track which sounds like it came straight off the top of the Country Chart.

Until you get something wrong, there's not much more I can say.

ROG.

Hey floyd,

Woops!!!!! I listened to this one ages ago but, as I was going through the forum this morning trying to catch up on all the posts that I've missed, I discovered that I didn't post a comment on this song.

It's fantastic! I love that way that the chorus changes its colour with each verse and the bridge. Just as others have commented, the line "a ballerina climbing junkyard cars" is inspired songwriting at it's best - very visual and uniquely the voice of floyd jane. I just used Google to search for "ballerina climbing junkyard cars" and there were only five sites returned. Four of those were related to car sales (or wreckers) and really didn't contain the phrase (they must have bribed Google). The fifth site was...

... link to the fifth site (second in the list)

How amazing is that! In a world where it's possible to find almost anything and everything, your phrase is unique. Google says so smile

I've got to say, I'm really falling for the aabccb rhyme pattern that you used. It really works so well.

My favourite two lines are
Quote:
i might get ahead of you, but
i'll wait for you to catch up


To use a simple and unassuming conjunction like "but" and to give it the strength of rhyme as well as the payoff of the last line is pretty clever lyric writing in my book. I felt a sense of 'hanging' at the end of the last line with that pause BUT ....

.... it made the payoff all so sweet!

Lastly, the production is a perfect fit for the very memorable melody and incredibly well designed harmony.

There goes that forum bar up a few more notches!

All the best,
Noel

Updated Song Titles Browser in Band-in-a-Box® 2020!

If you're looking for a Band-in-a-Box® Style in the feel of a familiar/popular song title, then the Song Titles Browser option in the Band-in-a-Box® StylePicker is the perfect feature for you!

With Band-in-a-Box® 2020, we’ve added 3,400 more song titles including requests from users, so there are now 14,000 titles to search from!

Just type in a familiar song title or artist name - once you have found the song, press the [OK - Find Matching Styles] button. This will take you to the StylePicker window with styles that best match the tempo, feel, and genre of the selected song title.

Didn't find the song you were searching for? Post your title request to our Wishlist forum: Songs to add to Band-in-a-Box Titles database - we think that the 3,400 new titles added with Version 2020 is proof that we're paying attention!

SongPicker Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac!

The Band-in-a-Box® SongPicker has been enhanced with our newest 2020 version!

The SongPicker now builds faster for large song lists (>30K and up to 60,000 songs). The [Song] button (or the [Open] button) now has 3 additional menu items to launch the SongPicker.

- Open SongPicker in Current Folder: This opens the SongPicker in the current folder of the last loaded song.
- Open SongPicker in Home Folder: This opens the SongPicker in the home folder, which is Applications/Band-in-a-Box/MySongs or as set in the SongPicker.
- Open SongPicker in Favorite Folder: This launches the Favorite Folder dialog which allows you to choose any previously used folder where a song was loaded from, and then open the SongPicker in that folder.

In the SongPicker, there is a new “Open in Home” option. If this is enabled, the SongPicker will always open in the home folder instead of the current folder when you press the default [Song] button to open the SongPicker.

Searching for songs matching a chord progression or melody has been enhanced. There are three new checkboxes: "Key must match exactly," "Chord Extension must match exactly", and "Time Signature must match."

Click here to jump to the SongPicker subject in our New Features video to learn more. (32:11)

New "Feature Browser" in Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac

Band-in-a-Box® has so many features! We add 50 new ones with every version, so you may have forgotten all the different things that Band-in-a-Box® can do. Fortunately, with the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2020 we've solved this issue by added a Feature Browser!

How does it work? Access this feature by clicking on the [?] button on the main screen of the program or pressing the / Enter keys on the Chord Sheet. This dialog lists many features of the program and allows you to browse them, find the feature by text filter, read descriptions about the feature, find how to launch the feature, access to the online information or video about the feature, and do more.

Examples of a few situations where this feature is helpful:

-You know about a feature but don't know how to find it. Just type a part of the feature name and you'll see the hotkeys, menu, and toolbar info on how to launch it. For example, if you want to launch the Chord Builder but don’t know how to do it, type "builder" in the text filter, and you will quickly find the Chord Builder.
-You are exploring available features for Band-in-a-Box. For example, if you are a guitar player, type the word "guitar" and you'll see what's available.
-You prefer "one-stop-shopping" and would like to launch features from the same dialog.
-You are learning the program and like to browse or watch videos about topics you're interested in.
You can't remember hotkeys and want to review them.

Watch this new feature in action when you jump to the subject in our New Features video: 10:20 - New Feature - Feature Browser
