This tune literally skyrocketed to #20 in a field of over 24k Blues-General tunes. It's my token tribute to my VA Nurse who goes unrecognized for the excellent care that he provides to we veterans. Thanks, Mike.

After listening, please rate me up. It will be a great encouragement to Mike LPN, Janelle RN, and the entire medical staff at Tulsa VAMC.

You'll hear our buddy, Brent Mason, jump in with his signature "Tele Snap" at about 1:00.

@Josie, thanks for listening and encouraging your Cyber Dad. Been extremely busy organizing material for my first ever professionally recorded album. Eventually, it will be available on iTunes. I'll gladly provide you with a courtesy copy.

Nina Gerber, guitarist for the late Kate Wolf (qv) for 14 years is donating some of her fabulous guitar work. That will definitely make the album worth hearing.

@Fred, I certainly appreciated your listening and encouraging comment.

Thanks, Bob.

Where were these wonderful opportunities 50 years ago when I chased after them? Perhaps the answer is: Band-In-A-Box. Thanks, Peter and crew!

I agree with everyone. This rocks!!! Is that Nina Gerber playing on this track? I've heard her backing some songwriters in my area. She's a great player. Great listen! Take care. Greg

Hi Don.

Oh, I DO love the blues and this is one of the best. Definitely has a 60s Brit feel to it. (Yardbirds?)

Very nicely crafted. Super choice of tracks and a great mix.

Thanks for sharing.

ROG.

No Greg, that's BIAB all the way! I used a Brent Mason RT and Brent followed my chord progression obediently. Great session player! lol

Nina hasn't even recorded her tracks yet. She's even buying studio time to record them. She's another treasure. Thanks, Nina. And, yes, she's a fabulous guitarist!

The album material is coming together quite well, hindered only by my very limited experience in such matters. Chorgle. (less than a chuckle).

Such a nice gesture to consider him worthy of this honor.

"Where were these wonderful opportunities 50 years ago when I chased after them."

Not every town has one but I live 3 miles from your answer. Opened 1966
it still cranks them out TR Studio I find myself 50 years later finally calling for a chance to book some time in the spring to run the old school rigs!

Not quite a Astoria but I'll enjoy it just the same.

Your never to old to dream!

That's quite a rocker going on Don. Just listened for the first time this morning and it is a #4 in Blues and #2 in Blues General. Way to go.

Not every day a Nurse gets a hit song named for them. You are truly one of the most gracious people here on the forum. I'm not so sure I know another who thinks so consistently and sincerely of others as you do.

And you write some pretty decent blues to boot.

Thanks for posting.

Charlie

Floyd; Scott709; Charlie; DA; R&AM; Jim; ROG; Noel; Greg; Bob; Fred; Josie B; et al, It’s always pleasant and encouraging to be complemented on one’s efforts and achievements but when coming from my songwriting peers, it’s especially exhilarating and re-energizing. It could not have happened were it not for the genius of Dr Gannon and crew. Thanks belong to them and the many musician friends that I have gleaned from and plagiarized over the years. Peter has me deeply involved in my sincere love of music that I had believed was lost to me forever.

J&B; Tommy, must have been writing when you were commenting. Didn't mean to exclude you, by any means! I've stolen (borrowed) from each of you equally. Bent Irishmen don't discriminate. lol

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."
