Die A little at a time

I wake up in the morning with no sunshine
fighting a battle I may never win
you left me with this burden on my mind
and I'll die just a little at a time

when you left you broke this heart of mine
broke it into a thousand tiny pieces
you left me with this burden on my mind
and I'll die just a little at a time

instrumental break

Well I wake up in the morning with no sunshine
fighting a battle I may never win
my heart is broken into a thousand tiny pieces
and I'll die just a little at a time
a little at a time

Charlie

Really liked the entire song. Great introduction, good lyrics, nice feel throughout.

The harmonica was especially influential in the breaks.

Nice job all 'round.

Hi Charlie,

I really enjoyed the listen. The mood you created with your singing, your arrangement and your production was really excellent. It's two enthusiastic thumbs up from me!

Regards,
Noel

RichMac - Thanks for stopping by. I was very much influenced by Waylon Jennings music and wrote this song many years ago when just starting out learning and playing music.

Trevor - I appreciate you listening and taking time to comment. Glad you enjoyed it. The harmonica was heard in a lot of Waylon's early songs. I thought it fit the song well too.

Bob - Thanks for listening. This seems like a song that would catch your attention.

Noel - I always look forward to your comments. I'm glad you enjoyed this one.

Josie - Always glad to hear from you. Thanks for listening. I was probably enjoying your Facebook video of your live performance with your friends doing John Denver's "Back Home Again " about the same time you listened to this tune here on the forum. Good job on the cover.

Charlie,

Nice production. It fit the song perfectly. And a good mix.

The real standout here, though, is your vocal. You really "brought it" on this. (with a nice Waylon feel, too). Heartfelt. Or, actually... "broken-hearted-felt"...

Guenter - Thanks for listening. Glad you found it enjoyable.

Josie - I appreciate your comments. I've been singing this one a long time and I'm partial to the early Waylon Jennings style. Must have helped me out this time. ;=)

Greg - Thanks for taking time to listen and comment. I'm glad you enjoyed it.

Scott - Thanks. This is my favorite style. Thanks for stopping by.

Floyd - Always look forward to your thoughts on a song. Thanks for listening. Using a new mic on this one. Maybe it helped...

F.M.M. - Thanks. Yep, you hear this chord progression in a lot of Americana and 70's country music. Favorite style of mine too.

Love the intro with the staggered introduction of instruments. And the vibe from the vocals to the mix are all spot on.

Super job! much enjoyed!

Oh on second listen, I just heard the percussion that precedes the drums. Excellent touch!

Hi Charlie,

A classic!
Sung in this introvert style this song needs. This is a great write! This is one of my favourites since I joined the forum!
Simplicity reveals the genius!

Tipping my hat,

Fred

We miss Waylon -- a lot. I think I
have his whole catalog.

This is indeed reminiscent of his
style. Your vocal and the harp
really nail it.

Thanks for the enjoyable trip
back a few years...to a time when
country music was, well, music.

Charlie, You've never sounded better! The restraint in the vocal brings it home. I really like the write and the mix sounds great. This is the real deal. Tom

Gruverider - Thanks for listening. It was a fun song to do and I'm glad you enjoyed it. Even more so that you went back for seconds.

Fred - I really appreciate your nice compliment. It means a lot. It's always fun to make someone's favorite list.

Janice and Bud - Thanks for listening and commenting. Waylon was a big influence for me. I even had an old fender guitar finished in the same style as his. Of course, his songs fit right into the country rock band's playlist I played in back in the day. I'm glad I got it close enough to make your memories enjoyable.

Tommy - I always look forward to your thoughts and comments. My chest puffed out a little today and I'm still smiling. Thanks for listening. And.... I'll take a vocal compliment anytime I can get one!

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!"

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."
