Nice job on this tune. Good topic and well arranged and produced. Might have a touch too much reverb here and there (early fiddle?) for that more contemporary country sound -- but it is a pretty minor point. Nice change into the chorus/bridge. Pretty good singing, too. Excellent mixing of BIAB sounds. This is a good a song as I've heard around these parts.

A really groovy track. Are the handclaps from RealTracks?
I especially like the backing vocals.
Good voice.
Thumbs up.

Fun to listen to. I did notice a change in the tone of your singing at the end which I am not sure helped the song finish up uniformly, perhaps this was intentional. In any event, it's a very good song.

My thoughts also . . . but very nice overall. I love the lyric but I love any lyric that comes from the heart.

Hi somar,

I really enjoyed listening to this. It's very engaging in every way - music, words, performance, production. What a wonderful lifetime gift to give you son.

Noel

Yep, it's all said, but also wonder about the hand clap (I don't think is a RT) but it lends a little "(River Dance" type of groove to it.

Somar,
Welcome to the forum. Thanks for sharing your music.
I sure liked the song. I especially liked your vocals (both lead and backing tracks). I think the hand clapping was a very nice touch.
We hope to hear lots more from you!

Somar,

I almost missed this and I'm so glad I didn't.

You've got the gift. This is top shelf. What a great contemporary sound. Personally I wasn't crazy about the switch in the vocal and switching into the long ending tag of "baby you've got to help yourself". I think it would've been more powerful to stay with your hook - jmho. But what a great song and production. And I love your voice.

Two big thumbs up here. One of the best songs I've heard on this forum.

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit for macOS Catalina

With Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit for Mac we added Drum Notation Support, and we didn't stop there! Other Notation Enhancements added in this new version are:

-A new track type (Drums) is available for the Melody and Soloist tracks.
-Clicking close to a stave line will put a note on the stave line instead of between stave lines. Previously, you had to click extremely close to a stave line to insert a note on it.
-Holding down the control key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
-In the Notation Window Options dialog, the clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
-Notation is much clearer, not jagged, on retina screens.
-The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
-The right-click menu in the Editable or Staff Roll mode Notation window has an option to change the current beat resolution. Previously, the only way to do this was to right-click on the time line.
-There is a keystroke entry mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, M to enter a third note, up/down cursor to change the pitch of the highlighted note, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
-You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
