Hello everyone,

This is our new song:

To the Bone

We think this one has a 'Byrds' feel to it. Well that's mainly because of the 1030 12 string electric real track.
Rob added it in the final stage of the song.
We had some footage left of our trip to London, and decided to put it in.

Song specifics:

Style is _M16SELC.STY (Med.Pop16s wEl.Guit&Piano[110RS])

1603:Bass, Electric, Pop16ths Ev 110
1610:Piano, Acoustic, Rhythm Pop16 Ev16 110

NashvilleEven16^6-a:Snare, HiHat , b:Snare, HiHat Open

We hope you like it, As always any comments are welcome.

Rob & Anne-Marie

Lyrics:

City streets in front of me
Every light is calling your name
With the edgy words you said to me
Half of me is wandering in pain

Ooh that smile on your face
And ooh that fire in your eyes

I remember you say I will never let go
Though I'm draining your love to the bone
And suddenly it seems I've been waiting too long
With all of my freedom long gone

Petty things and precious hopes
Lovely nights fly out of the door
Your piercing eyes will follow me
They hunt me down wherever I go

Ooh that mind rages on
And ooh that voice tears me down

I remember you say I will never let go
Though I'm draining your love to the bone
And suddenly it seems I've been waiting too long
With all of my freedom long gone

Ooh that smile on your face
And ooh that fire in your eyes

If I'm leaving this town, don't know where I will end
Trying fiercely to leave things behind
And someday I'll find there is no love to deny
It would always come down to a lie

Fantastic job!! Really nice, and as always, interesting music. Production is killer. Solo works perfectly. I also love the 12 string electric. My next post is a song that uses that, as well as my last post. It has a great sound. This song is very cool! Take care. Greg

That 12 string really adds a nice texture. Really nice footage of London at night too - the opening shot of the ferris wheel in the skyline is so pretty.

Enjoyed this song very much. Wonderful production and vocals by you both.

Hi Rob and Anne-Marie ...

great song! You guys always have some of the best music on these boards. There are a lot of very talented people here and you two rate at ot near the top with your great songs and superb production.

We loved the song. That 12-string electric is a winner. I (Alan) used to have but no longer do. You're making me think about it!!!! Super nice! best to you ...

Also, in a couple of hours, maybe earlier, we're gonna post Di's first song since her stroke last month. We wrote and recorded it this afternoon ... about 6 hours total.

Alan & Di

Thank you Josie!

Those 12 string real tracks are one of the best in the program.
It's always convenient to have some holiday footage to spare, haha.
Next year will be going to Berlin, and when we get back will probably have even more footage.

Regards,
Rob

Rob and AM, This has a really nice chord progression. The vocal has a Moody Blues feel to me. That's a good thing. Good mix and production. I enjoyed it. Tom

Anne-Marie and Rob

London lookd great at night, was Anne-Marie the face over the words "Ooh that smile on your face, And ooh that fire in your eyes" and what a wonderful effect Anne-Marie, you are a good video producer.

Wonderful song, up to your usual high standards

Rob and Anne-Marie,

I want to rave about this song, but I just called the superlative bank, and they said I'm overdrawn. ;(

But seriously... didn't you two maniacs just post a mega-production?? How could have something this good ready so soon?

I must say, you have a real feel for writing compelling relationship-based pop-songs. ALL of your stuff sounds marketable to me. They're all so good I find myself wishing for a generic reply so I don't have to keep thinking up new ways to say what a good job you both do on these productions.

The particulars have already been stated very well... it's a great chord pattern, your harmonies are always PERFECT and the lyrics are especially interesting to me because they almost always have an appeal to both genders. Do you collaborate on lyrics? Each of you making slight changes in order to solidify the impact with your own gender? Or are you really that intuitive about how to say exactly the right things?

Hi Alan and Di,

Thanks for all these compliments.
Yes, the 12-string is lovely here.
And not having a 12-string is no problem.... we don't have it either. That's why we have Biab! laugh

I agree with Tom re the Moody Blues feel and
also agree that is a good thing. I like the electric
12 string. I saw the Byrds several times back
in the day and have always liked that sound.

Per your high bar everything sounds extremely
well produced on my KRK's.

Congrats on another fine tune.

J&B

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.

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."

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
