This time a typical R & AM song, we think.... I agree, and that's a good thing!! Nicely done. A pleasant, catchy tune with a great arrangement, great vocal, and quality production. What's not to like? Oh Yeah, and the obligatory very cool video accompaniment. Very cool!! Take care. Greg

wow, you two are just so INNOVATIVE in everything that you do!

Your chord progressions always throw me a curve by going somewhere I wasn't expecting..
you have real melodies in your songs, and they're always unique and memorable...
you have really interesting transitions between sections of your songs...
Your harmonies always rock...
you are really REALLY good at making real tracks sound like live performances!
The solo in this song sounds like you added some kind of effect to a slide guitar RT... or was that the original RT unaltered? (either way, I really liked that as a solo)

This song made me thing of Fleetwood Mac at several places.

Now, the video was impressive for completely different reasons:
The special effects, animations and transitions you apply are very tasteful and they really add visual interest. And the clips themselves are spectacular! Each of them is visually striking on its own, but when you put them all together in the context of a song, the whole package is so polished that it just SHINES!

Once again, kudos to both of you... you each add so much to your projects, you really make an uncommonly talented and productive team!

I really liked this a lot. One of my new favs of yours. I love that acoustic rock vibe - and I really liked the lyrics and the chord changes too. Vocals/harmonies on the money. Cool video too. I just wish I could be as prolific as you two...it's inspiring.

This is probably your best to date, but it is hard to judge as all of your songs sound like they come from a pro studio!

I also liked the acoustic rock vibe in this one and your vocals and harmonies are spot on.

Greg, Charlie, Josie, Mario, Guenter, Floyd, Mario, Fred and Dani....
thanks a lot for all your positive comments!

Pat: you heard it right! Rob had FleetwoodMac's "I don't wanna know" in mind, when composing this song.
The used resonator guitar has some effects added, EQ (we cut some high frequencies) and delay.

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."
