Here is my week 8 release: Not Going Down There No More

http://52tracksblog.com/2016/02/25/track-8-not-going-down-there-no-more/

HankPS1 style: #539 Pop Swing Bass, Nashville Brushes Classic Shuffle RD, #639 Resonator Background Hank Swing, #2122 Resonator Soloist Country Shuffle Rob.

I played acoustic guitar and banjo-guitar.

The RealTracks Resonator (DOBRO) background and solo parts blended well, at least to my ears.

Thanks for listening and for any comments you would like to make.

Fred

Fred,

Excellent write. In another age, this would be a folk classic.

Listening in phones the panning was a bit wide, I thought. (small thing - and a personal choice, I know).

The arrangement and production and vocals are all really well done.

Thanks for the comments.

Floyd, thanks for flagging the panning. My main rig is out of commission, so am having to mix on smaller speakers. I will consult the headphones.

Great Americana going there! The lyric, vocal and the shuffle groove are right in our listening wheelhouse.
A bit like Uncle Tupelo, etc.

You have a host of fine lines packed in the lyric and they are well delivered vocally.

And we always like to hear Rob show up here. He's a master Dobro picker. We've listened
to Blue Highway for 20 years.

Enjoyed it!!

Sounds great on my phones and I love the song. Terrific folkie Americana sound.

BTW, I thought you'd used 52 tracks and I'm thinking wow man that's a lot of tracks I gotta hear this... Then I realized you're writing 52 tracks. LOL! That's quite a goal. Good luck.

PG Music News
Ordering Your Band-in-a-Box® is Easy!

When you order any PG Music products directly from www.pgmusic.com (or www.bandinabox.com) you'll receive immediate links to start downloading your order! Even if you choose to have a backup copy of your Band-in-a-Box® packages shipped, you'll still have the download links available to you - no need to wait!

We've made it even easier to get started with Band-in-a-Box® with the Easy Payment Plan 4 - when you choose this payment option you'll pay four equal monthly payments starting on the day of your order.

Choose your Band-in-a-Box® for Windows package & order here.

Using Mac? Order here.

When you get to the checkout, simply click on Select Easy Payment Plan 4 for this product to apply this option.

Note: This only applies to this Band-in-a-Box product, and does not apply to other products that you might have in your order, including the physical backup copy if selected.

Band-in-a-Box® File Associations

You may have noticed when you were installing Band-in-a-Box® for Windows that you were asked if you would like to Associate Band-in-a-Box songs and styles with Band-in-a-Box? But, what does that mean?

It's actually pretty simple - basically, if you select this option while you're installing the program, files with the extensions .SGU, .MGU, and other Band-in-a-Box files will open directly in the program if you select them from outside the program.

Missed this option during your setup, but you'd like to apply it now? Go to File | File Utilities | Associate File types with Explorer within the program.

Ear Training Games in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows

October 1, 2021 is National Kids Music Day!

Head to the Practice Window in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows, and you'll see fun games that are fun ear training options for kids: Music Replay & Pitch Invasion.

Of course, you don't have to be a kid to like these games, I think there a fun way to learn at any age!

Music Replay is just what it sounds like - the program plays a 1-bar melody, and the user plays it back. Get it right, and you'll keep building that melody (and skill) within the game - get it wrong, and you'll be met with a warning tone and have to try again... it's quite addictive, and a lot of fun!

If you like a classic arcade game, then you'll love Pitch Invasion! We've managed to incorporate aliens with pitch-recognition skills in this exciting game, where you'll match the pitch of the alien ship descending towards your planet trying to destroy your collection of instruments - match the pitch and you've saved your instruments, make a mistake and the ship keeps coming... you'll have a few tries to get it right, if you're quick, but if all your instruments are destroyed - it's game over! The game speeds up as your skills improve, and you'll earn points along the way, with bonus points available throughout the game.

Open up your Band-in-a-Box® for Windows today to give it a try!

These ear training games are also included in Musical Arcade for Windows.
