You wonderful friends were so kind in reviewing Gigi's Fiddle Waltz that I decided to post Isla's Waltz with PSG.

Isla is huge in Country Music in Ireland and tours worldwide. It's a thrill to have a celebrity of Isla's magnitude use one of my compositions. Her band plays it during audience transitions at her concerts (not on her set list).

Isla has 11 Gold and 3 Platinum Albums.

Congrats, Don! That's impressive company you keep:)

You've got some nice surprises in this as that steel takes a few beats to get where progression is going, if you know what I mean.

Very enjoyable, excellent mix, Amigo.

Scotty,

I hesitate to "namedrop" the countless famed artists in my life but, regrettably, I've outlived most of them.

You and my many PG Music friends are more important to me currently. The two Josies are like my own daughters. You and Danny are my sons.

Apparently, I have an intrinsic capacity to love and it comes back to me tenfold.

Pat Marr once asked how I know all of these successful artists. My reply...reach out to them! Under the glitter and facade you'll often discover a wonderful and generous human being in need of a sincere, caring friend unintimidated by "star" status and equally interested in "real" friendship.

Really pretty tune!! My closest thing to a brush with greatness is that I went to school with Adam Duritz of Counting Crows. He was in my fraternity and we played together at the Greek Week Talent Show. He went on to the big time and I'm still waiting for my break. This is really nice work! Take care. Greg

Don, I am always in when there's steel. Nice job putting this together. I'm sure it took a lot of editing to get it right. Sounds good. Tom

I jammed with Bob Dylan in HS and at house/keg parties. To date I've been unable to penetrate his security to reminisce with him.

I'm with Tom here. PSG is hard to beat and is the sweetest sound when done right. You did good on this one.

What he said! Not much to add to Tom's comment what with him being a steel man...other than very nice!

based on the caliber of showcase tunes lately, I'm thinking that my brush with greatness will come from this forum!

Another good one Don! Keep 'em coming!

PG Music News
RealBand® Works Great in Windows® 11!

Here's an introductory look at RealBand® running on the preview version of Windows® 11!

Watch the video.

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!"

continued...

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."
