Hi Guys, Here is a song from back in the day (wrote it about 30 years ago) thought i may resurrect it, did this one today mostly real tracks with a bit of guit mando and vox... think this is worth doing? thanks guys. Ade..

a bit beatle-ish....

bw. dont pay any attention to the mix or vox, its just the idea, with made up rough lyrics.. (i cant remember that long ago for words, but they were something like this)

Yeah, definitely has potential. Your rough mix sounded pretty good. Go for it!

Yeah... it certainly has that 60's Brit Pop feel....

Nice tune and lyrics. Polished and tweaked, I could see this in a chick flick..... behind one of the scenes...

there's something really weird and off key going on in the solo around 1:50....

nice ending.... tighten it up and it's killer.

Sounds retro BUT then I'm a retro guy! Still think the old music was the best so I say "GO FOR IT". Pleasant tune! Take care. Greg

Wow, if you could have had BIAB 2015 technology 30 years ago you would have been in the hit business for sure. This is a good song for your voice and would be a great fit in a movie based in that time.
Lyrically and stylistically, the song, lyrics and arrangement more closely follow Gary Lewis and the Playboys than what the Beatles would do. But that's a good thing. Gary had some nice hits of his own.

I think your song would be well received here on the forum once you get to your final mix. Not much work to do here to make this a fine recording.

Hi Pykeyh

Nothing really wrong with this at all. Certainly has that 60s feel to it and it flows along nicely.

Maybe sort out a better solo, bring the vocals up a bit and you've got a great song.

Nice song. Definitely the sound of 30 or more years ago.
Vocals are very good.

I have a friend here in the Worcester (Massachusetts, not UK) area who is in a band called the Brit Wits. They play note-perfect covers of all the 60's British Invasion bands, from the Hermits all the way to Cream. I love that stuff. This song makes me think of those great, simple, hooky songs from that era, which to me is a lovely thing. I love the bridge and the baritone guitar parts. Super start - please do share the finished product when you get there!

Cheers,
Bruce

The Band-in-a-Box® Flash Drive Backup Option

Today (April 5) is National Flash Drive Day!

Did you know... not only can you download your Band-in-a-Box® Pro, MegaPAK, or PlusPAK purchase - you can also choose to add a flash drive backup copy with the installation files for only $15? It even comes with a Band-in-a-Box® keychain!

For the larger Band-in-a-Box® packages (UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, Audiophile Edition), the hard drive backup copy is available for only $25. This will include a preinstalled and ready to use program, along with your installation files.

Backup copies are offered during the checkout process on our website.

Already purchased your e-delivery version, and now you wish you had a backup copy? It's not too late! If your purchase was for the current version of Band-in-a-Box®, you can still reach out to our team directly to place your backup copy order!

Note: the Band-in-a-Box® keychain is only included with flash drive backup copies, and cannot be purchased separately.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first? If your flash drive (or other USB plug) doesn't have a symbol to indicate which way is up, look for the side with a seam on the metal connector (it only has a line across one side) - that's the side that either faces down or to the left, depending on your port placement.

Band-in-a-Box® 2024 Review: 4.75 out of 5 Stars!

If you're looking for a in-depth review of the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows version, you'll definitely find it with Sound-Guy's latest review, Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows Review: Incredible new capabilities to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs.

A few excerpts:
"The Tracks view is possibly the single most powerful addition in 2024 and opens up a new way to edit and generate accompaniments. Combined with the new MultiPicker Library Window, it makes BIAB nearly perfect as an 'intelligent' composer/arranger program."

"MIDI SuperTracks partial generation showing six variations – each time the section is generated it can be instantly auditioned, re-generated or backed out to a previous generation – and you can do this with any track type. This is MAJOR! This takes musical experimentation and honing an arrangement to a new level, and faster than ever."

"Band in a Box continues to be an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs, as well as an extensive educational resource. It is huge, with hundreds of functions, more than any one person is likely to ever use. Yet, so is any DAW that I have used. BIAB can do some things that no DAW does, and this year BIAB has more DAW-like functions than ever."
