Here is my week 14 song for my 52 Tracks project: Sorrows of the Moon

http://52tracksblog.com/2016/04/07/track-14-sorrows-of-the-moon/

A very spare arrangement, just bass guitar, piano, and drums.

701 Electric Bass Pop Half Notes Sync, 1006 Piano Pop California Slow, and Nashville Even 8^5 Real Drums.

Thanks for listening. Comments are always appreciated.

Fred

Very nice set of lyrics - quite a sophisticated song. Can hear the Jackson Browne influence or Al Stewart for that matter.
May have been nice with a little David Lindley like slide or violin to break it up a little but overall another very nice song.
I'm very impressed with the the variety a you are coming up with on a weekly basis.

Hi Fred,

Very nice song. It's hard to make a sparse arrangement shine, but you did a great job with this one! Still, I'd kinda like to hear the big production version of it... ;-)

I'm curious to know.. looks like you're planning to post a new song every week for a year... Will you be starting from scratch every week? Or do you have a bunch of songs written already? Maybe you're redoing them in BIAB?

Either way, such a goal would be way out of my reach! Good luck to you, sounds like a fun and satisfying goal to shoot for!

Thanks for the comments, Pat. Some of the songs have been recorded in a week this year, while others are final tweaks and mixes of songs I have recorded in the past six years but never truly finished. I have changed some instruments because I found better RealTracks. As the year moves on the great majority of songs will be newly recorded. Happily, I am becoming more efficient in arranging, recording, editing, and mixing.

Fred

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!

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?

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!
