Geir

Sunburnt Country.

Yes, you hit the nail on the head. South Australia. I think it's the driest state in the driest continent in the entire world.

Great upbeat song. Lots of fun. Stay cool.

Hi Geir,

Loved this song! Great job!

I notice you didn't post the lyrics... I've gotten spoiled by being able to read the words as I listen to the song. Any chance you could come back to your post and add the lyrics for the sake of anyone else who may be as spoiled as I am.

=========== update!============

Geir messaged the lyrics to me, so I decided to repost them here for the benefit of anybody who likes to read along with the song (as I do)

Quote:


DOWN ON THE LAND By Geir Børholm © APRA / AMCOS

Down on the land things ain’t working out right
the hot wind’s a blowin’ dried everything in sight
It’s not that I’m complaining or blamin’ any one
it’s just apart of living in the harsh Australian sun

Chorus
I’m living in a country a sun burnt country
where the banks have no mercy for the man on the land
I’m living in a country a sun burnt country
I’m tiered of the struggle but I do the best I can

Now I ain’t one for quitting or crying in my beer
I’d sooner fight a tiger snake than shed a single tear
It’s hard -n- hot and dirty but honey I don’t mind
as long as theirs a cold one in the fridge when I get home

Hi Everyone,

Thank you all for your wonderful comments,

Yes, It can get extremely hot over here, especially this past summer,
but one thing we do have, is a great sense of humor,
it keeps us all sane,

Please have a great and safe Easter,

Kind Regards

This is a great toe tapping fun song.

The song said you do the best you can, well you did one fantastic job on this one.

Super mix, very nicely balanced.

Great job.


Me, it's not about how many times you fail, it's about how many times you get back up.
Cop, that's not how field sobriety tests work.

Hi there Mario,

Thank you so much for your kind words,
I had a lot of fun writing and singing this one,
we can never say that songwriting has to be boring,

we just go with the flow.

Please have a great and safe Easter,

Kind Regards

Yep, we agree!

We enjoyed it -- particularly as folks who played bluegrass for 30 years!

J&B

BTW, Dunno if SC is responsible or not but the song as played a few minutes ago is very hot. Nearly
blew the monitors off the shelf until I pulled the gain down. smile FWIW I've had SC generate some
funky versions of my uploads and then it can change w/o notice.

Cool song!! You certainly have a lot of range. I thought your last posted sounded like U2. This one is a LOT different. But, you consistently deliver a quality product and some excellent vocals. Very well done! Take care. Greg

Hi Everyone,

Thank you so very much for all the kindness you have shown me
through your wonderful comments,
I truly do appreciate each and everyone of you,
you are all so incredibly talented and are stars in your own right,

I'm going back on the road for the next 5 weeks, so
I will be unable to post anything for a little while,

I look forward to catch up with you all when I return,
hopefully with some new music as well as some stories,

God Bless and Kind Regards
Geir...

The Band-in-a-Box® Flash Drive Backup Option

Today (April 5) is National Flash Drive Day!

Did you know... not only can you download your Band-in-a-Box® Pro, MegaPAK, or PlusPAK purchase - you can also choose to add a flash drive backup copy with the installation files for only $15? It even comes with a Band-in-a-Box® keychain!

For the larger Band-in-a-Box® packages (UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, Audiophile Edition), the hard drive backup copy is available for only $25. This will include a preinstalled and ready to use program, along with your installation files.

Backup copies are offered during the checkout process on our website.

Already purchased your e-delivery version, and now you wish you had a backup copy? It's not too late! If your purchase was for the current version of Band-in-a-Box®, you can still reach out to our team directly to place your backup copy order!

Note: the Band-in-a-Box® keychain is only included with flash drive backup copies, and cannot be purchased separately.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first? If your flash drive (or other USB plug) doesn't have a symbol to indicate which way is up, look for the side with a seam on the metal connector (it only has a line across one side) - that's the side that either faces down or to the left, depending on your port placement.

Band-in-a-Box® 2024 Review: 4.75 out of 5 Stars!

If you're looking for a in-depth review of the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows version, you'll definitely find it with Sound-Guy's latest review, Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows Review: Incredible new capabilities to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs.

A few excerpts:
"The Tracks view is possibly the single most powerful addition in 2024 and opens up a new way to edit and generate accompaniments. Combined with the new MultiPicker Library Window, it makes BIAB nearly perfect as an 'intelligent' composer/arranger program."

"MIDI SuperTracks partial generation showing six variations – each time the section is generated it can be instantly auditioned, re-generated or backed out to a previous generation – and you can do this with any track type. This is MAJOR! This takes musical experimentation and honing an arrangement to a new level, and faster than ever."

"Band in a Box continues to be an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs, as well as an extensive educational resource. It is huge, with hundreds of functions, more than any one person is likely to ever use. Yet, so is any DAW that I have used. BIAB can do some things that no DAW does, and this year BIAB has more DAW-like functions than ever."
