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

PG Music News
RealBand® Works Great in Windows® 11!

Here's an introductory look at RealBand® running on the preview version of Windows® 11!

Watch the video.

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...

Do you have something to say about Band-in-a-Box®? Post your own thoughts for Windows or Mac version today!

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."
