Point In Time

Here is a new song called Point in Time. The different tempos of the song represent the past, the present and the future. The slow parts I used a BIAB drum track to keep time then silenced. The second faster part is:
1008 Bass Electric EV120
689 Organ B3 Pop Even (Love this one)
Real Drums Nashville Even8
1681 Guitar 12String Acoustic
362 Guitar Acoustic Strumming.

Song was finished in RealBand. Struggled with the mixing..
This song was my first attempt to use two different tempos. Did some strange things in Real Band.

Scott,

Very nice! Soulful. Very relaxing. Thought you handled the tempo change, no problem.

My favorite of yours. I think you could explore this style further and really "have something" - it is quite enjoyable listening...

Like they said, I hear no issues at all with the tempo shifts. It all works very well and was an enjoyable listen!

Nice playing - very melodic. Which makes me wonder why you don't create a melody for the song.

Thanks for taking the time to listen. This was a bit of an experiment for me and I must say it was allot of fun.

RichMac

Thanks for the comments. The slow parts were simple and challenging at the same time. Glad you enjoyed the song.

Floyd

Thank you for your comments. I appreciate your input. I will continue to explore this type of music. Most of my slower songs just come from experimenting with tones from the guitar and amp. I love it when the sound seems to go right through me..

Janice and Bud

Thank you for your comments. I do appreciate your comments and I am a fan of your songs as well. I would love to be able to create the lyrics and have the ability to play and sing as well as you two.

Guenter

Thanks for taking the time to listen and comment. I appreciate it.

Blues1952

Thanks for taking the time to listen and comment. Not sure if you mean by adding melody you mean lyrics and singing but trust me I did not score high in creative writing in school and my singing - yikes !!!!

Very sweet and dynamic and great mix. Interesting changes that kept me engaged. Is there a story or script that goes with the music?

Thanks Olemon for taking the time to listen and comment. I appreciate it.

Actually there is a story and it started after something I had read on Facebook. It stated that if you spend most your time thinking of the past you are depressed, if you spend most of your time thinking or worrying about the future you have anxiety. If most of your thoughts are in the present you are in the best place. The music I cut my teeth on was from the mid to late sixties so I do spend time thinking about the past and about life when having a good time was really all that was important. So I had two snippets of music so I had put together one slow and sullen which represents the past that is now just a memory, the upbeat "happy section" which represents today and then slowing down again representing the future. Maybe a little to much drama for 3 minutes of music but this was definitely going through my head which creating the tune...

Yes, that is a nice guitar sound you got going on. Instrumentals need changes of paces (OK, all songs do) and you did that well here. Good story, too. I think this might be the first thing I've heard from you here -- or maybe not, I've been in and out for awhile. If so, I must have missed a lot!

I listened to this the other day and thought I had commented.

Apparently not.

This has a Pinko Floydish feel to it. I like that aspect of the composition. If the guitar had more of en edge it would sound like PF.

My only nits were the chords at 1:01 and 1:20. They didn't fit well.

Aside from that, I like what you did here.

I really enjoyed this Scott. Very evocative, with a lovely guitar tone.
In parts the phrasing and mood reminded me of Snowy White's work on Peter Green's 'In The Skies' album.

Hi Kevin and Jools

Thanks for listening and commenting I appreciate it.

Hi Herb

Thanks for listening and commenting. I went back to the backtrack and checked out the chord changes at 1:01 and 1:20 and see what you mean. I was playing the piano for those chords and my skills with the piano are very limited. I limit the use of the piano and lean more to the organ and leslie for background.
For the guitar I played with the effects on the song bouncing back between the effects in Real Band and my floor pedals. Tone can be guite a monster to chase. The PF reference was very thoughtful.. DG is definitely an favorite of mine..

Hi John

Thanks for listening and commenting. Also the reference to Peter Greens work is well received. He also is a favorite of mine...

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."
