This is one foot tapper of a song and your voice sits perfectly in a crystal clear mix. Enjoyed that immensely thanks.

Welcome to the forum George!! I'll steal Floyd Jane's line by saying "This ain't your first rodeo". You've obviously written and performed a good bit. This is so well done on every level. Excellent work!! Take care. Greg

Well constructed song with a strong lyric and vocal performance.
The only thing I have my doubts about is that 'Newbie' tag!

George,

Very sweet bluegrass sound - your voice sounds great and the story interesting...surprisingly dark! ( lyrics would be nice).
Glad to have you aboard!

Robert

George, man that was slick!!! Great song! Great performance! Great job putting the track down! I appreciate what you have done here. Bluegrass is a style that I have a lot of respect for when it is done right and you sure did here! Thanks, Torrey.

George, great tune, top-tappin' right from the start.

All of the instruments are working harmoniously to provide an ideal balance, and the instrumental slotted in perfectly.

Thank You Will. BIAB is affording me the means to capture my writing in a way that nothing else can. Nothing affordable in any case. Be In Touch, George

Greg. WOW, Thanks. I've been writing for a while, but this is my first time to ever put it out for others to hear. Your comments are most encouraging and appreciated. It means a lot when folks take the time to listen and respond.

Floyd. Thanks for listening and commenting. To have my name mentioned in the same post with the "Hag", is about as good a complement as I could ever hope to get.

Callie. Thank You so much for listening and commenting. As I told Will, BIAB is allowing me to hear my writing in a way that's doable, and affordable. I don't know of anything else that can even come close. Thanks, Be In Touch, George

Hello Robert, and THANK YOU. Bluegrass music can be that way sometimes, kinda "dark". Off the top of my head I can't thing of any other music genre that does exactly that. Bill Monroe's "Little Girl And The Dreadful Snake" or "The Knoxville Girl" are classic examples. I appreciate your kind thoughts and comments. George

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...

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."
