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!


DA...

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

Uncommon RealTracks Instruments for Band-in-a-Box®

Today is Uncommon Instrument Awareness Day.

Examples of "uncommon instruments" include anything from Spoons to the Wheelharp to the Singing Ringing Tree, and more!
(there's probably more instruments out there that we DON'T know than we DO know)

Although our RealTracks collection doesn't include many 'uncommon instruments', we do offer some pretty unique choices!

On top of the usual varieties we offer for Piano, Guitar, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet, Bass, Tuba, Trumpet, Trombone, and more - our RealTracks library also offers a nice selection of Shakuhachi and Kalimba - there's even a Koto RealTrack included in Set 212!

Kalimba: RealTracks Set 271
Koto: RealTracks Set 212
Shakuhachi: RealTracks Sets 193 & 212

What's the most surprising RealTrack Instrument that you've come across?

Band-in-a-Box® 2020 Portuguese for Windows is Here!

Existem mais de 50 novos recursos no Band-in-a-Box® 2020! Existem aprimoramentos no RealTracks (RealTracks vocais com som mais suave, RealTracks Engrossados, Substitutos de RealTracks e MultiFrases). A maioria dos RealDrums agora possui RealCharts (com notação de bateria precisa). Há um novo navegador de artistas do RealTracks para encontrar informações/biografias/links/listas de RealTracks em todos os artistas. Um novo Navegador de recursos permite que o usuário novo ou "esquecido" encontre e use facilmente a maioria dos recursos/teclas de atalho/documentos em uma única janela. Equalizar Tempoaprimoramentos na Seleção de Músicas, baixo/bateria ou apenas bateria nas introduções automáticas, 3.400 títulos adicionados, aprimoramentos no MusicXML, visualização de guitarra para "Canhotos" e "Estudantes", aprimoramentos de arrastar e soltar, exibição de várias janelas do Interpretador de Acordes de Áudio e muito mais!

COMPRE/ATUALIZE, & BAIXE AGORA!

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 Mac Update Ready!

Just because Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac is here doesn't mean we've forgotten our 2019 users!

If you're still using Band-in-a-Box® 2019, make sure you download the latest patch update (b324) for an updated splash screen (macOS 10.12 and 10.13 users), smoother Song Titles dialog, access to your (purchased) RealTracks Set 328, and we've corrected the reported issue with opening songs from older versions of Band-in-a-Box in the 2019 version.

Learn more about this patch and download it here.

Review - Loops-with-Style PAK 2 for Band-in-a-Box® 2020

"Dr. Dave" Walker is at it again! You may remember his recent reviews of both Band-in-a-Box 2020 for Mac and Xtra Styles PAK 9 - now he has something to say about our Loops-with-Style PAK 2 - check it out: Click here to read...

With money being tight for most musicians, this is a wonderful gift for those on a limited budget. At $29, it offers months and years of fun and experimentation, bringing many ideas to fruition as songs with enough variation so that your audience doesn’t jump to "aw, that's a computer!" while still keeping the power of the software in your hands.
-"Dr. Dave" Walker

Thank you again Dr. Dave for the great review!

My New Favorite Thing - Extra Style PAK #9 with Loop Pack #2

I set up an eight bar progression with some simple pushes, shots, holds, and rests for reference. Then I started auditioning styles--Three hours later, I am invigorated, inspired, and just plain smiling big. Really CHOICE! From "down to earth" to eclectic, this is a really fun pak.

Great job, folks!
