Here is a tune I wrote that I recorded with Dan Lippert on harmonica and Dale Jernberg on harmony vocal. I used John Jarvis RT on piano, along with RT's on bass, and drums. I added guitar and lead vocal.

Hi Fred,

I've enjoyed hearing some of your folk songs. No Second Chance is a different type of tune for you and a nice change of pace.

Great work all around. Nice lyrics, nice singing, etc.

It took a while for my ears to get used to the wide pan of the instruments - guitar in one ear, piano in the other. And a bit too much ride for my ears...

Hey, I've got to complain about something. These polished songs set the bar too darned high for mortals like me! wink

Thanks for posting - I liked it a lot!

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Nice lay back country feel. Harmonica fills work nice, and good lyrics.

cool groove in this one. loved the harp and the vocals. one issue to me is it seems a bit cluttered over all. A problem i seem to develop on most of my projects.

Hi Fred,

I listened to your song, and the great JJ Cale passed in front of me, alive and well!!!

Need to say that I loved it.

Productionwise the standard on this forum is so high I'm feeling quite small.

Loved it!

I have been so busy I forgot to look at the comments until today. Thanks for listening and the positive comments. I do have to watch the ride cymbals in RDs!! Rides eat up the high end of the mix.

I have recorded two songs this week for a 14-song album. I love having BIAB for my rhythm section. I did find a pedal steel part that works well, as well as a banjo.

Hi Fred,

A hearty congratulations to you, Dan and Dale. This sounds terrific. The panning is unusual but it worked for me on my speakers.

Extremely well assembled and musicianship shines everywhere.

All the best,
Noel

Cool blues groove and well sung and performed. Nice hook and you sold it well vocally and instrumentally. --Pete

PG Music News
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."
