Here is a song I wrote ten years ago, Going to Sedona:

https://52tracksblog.com/2016/08/18/track-33-going-to-sedona/

All RTs: Bass Guitar, Electric Guitars, Piano, Mandolin, String Quartet, and Drums. It is the first time I have used a string quartet and found that it works well with this arrangment.

Thanks for listening.

Fred

Enjoyed that, Fred.

The mix is good and everything works. Good "believable" band - nice Americana sound.

Nice sound on that one - good choice of instruments (like the changes) - nice catchy chorus.

The name dragged me in.... had to listen.

Good country rock tune.


Several years back, our family took a vacation out to the Red Rock country. Easily one of the best and most interesting vacations we had. Lovely scenery and so many interesting places to visit. We stayed in a little place just off the main street in Sedona. It was a wonderful time.

Thanks, Herb. I wrote the song before I finally got to Sedona... It is a spectacular place. A friend of ours has a vacation rental property near the main drag. She keeps offering it to us for free...We are planning to take her up on the offer.

Nice, write vocals, arrangement and use of BiaB.

This dead center in our Americana wheelhouse.

No need to parse it out. We enjoyed everything about it!

Upgrading to Band-in-a-Box® 2020 is Easy!

Did you know... anyone who has owned a previous version of Band-in-a-Box® is entitle to upgrade pricing - you do not need to have your old version installed!

Maybe you used to own the Windows version, but you now have a Mac... that's not a problem either!
(or if you owned the Mac version, and now you have a Windows computer)

In both cases, you would purchase from the "Upgrade from 2018 or earlier or crossgrade" row here for a new Mac version, or here if you want the newest Windows version. Just need to upgrade your 2019 version? Use the "Upgrade from 2019/2020" row.

When you purchase your upgrade from either of these rows, you will receive a complete installation - just follow the steps of the setup, and your Band-in-a-Box® will be ready to use!

PG Music Inc. shopping cart accounts were not required to purchase from our website prior to October 29, 2014. With that in mind, you may have to create an account in order to upgrade - that's OK! You'll still be entitled to upgrade pricing.
