PAPERBACK (lyrics by Chris Spruit)

(V1)
Taking the road, I never walked
into the silence I did not talk
leads me to a crossroad
Heard a song
la da di la da di lada dia
and I knew I’ve heard it before

(V2)
And in the sky, I heard that noise
way in the distance, I had no choise
leads me to a garden
Birds in the sky
la da di la da di Lullaby
and I knew I’ve been here before

CHORUS:
And a road winds back
and my ink turns black
running down the paperback
what a great time dried
in the eyes of a child-
hood lies
deep down, inside

Solo

(V3)
Recalling a word, I never quote
writing a sentence, I never wrote
standing at the crossroad
a world, build blind,
in defense of a broken mind
But it makes no difference.

CHORUS:
And the road winds back
and my ink turns black
running down the paperback
what a great time dried
in the eyes of a child-
hood lies
deep down, inside

Solo, outro vamp

Song also up on soundcloud here: Paperback but sounds better on reverbnation to my ears.

Nice work.

Loved it from the drum intro at the start. Nice guitar licks. Well played solo.

Good work all the way around. Good singer too.

A bit long.

All in all, a good song and a good job with the project.

Lovin' us some Strat!

"And a road winds back
and my ink turns black
running down the paperback
what a great time dried
in the eyes of a child-
hood lies
deep down, inside"

The write is very engaging and the fine vocal performance really brings it all home.

The production shines on the KRK's -- superbly engineered with a nice open mud free mix.

Yep, we love it!

Dave & Chris...

Y'all get better with each release. This is excellent.

A good write. Interesting - and "engaging" as Bud said... Excellent vocal - "comfortable" sounding...

Cool drum start. Gorgeous leads - love that tone! Excellent mix.

Great listen. Exceptional!

Thanks, Joe! Especially the comment about the guitar. Normally I don't spend much time on the lead parts, but for this song I did quite a few takes before coming up with something I was happy with.

Floyd, thanks so much!

The last 18 months or so has been a real learning experience for both of us as far as a songwriting team goes and a hell of a lot of fun!

Your comments made my day, and I'm sure will make Chris's also once she has seen them, thanks again smile

Review - Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Windows

Make sure to check out the latest Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Windows review from Sound-Guy (Dennis) at www.gearslutz.com: click here.

Sound-Guy has been using Band-in-a-Box® for many, many, many, many, many years - and we still managed to surprise him with some great new features! Read his latest review to learn more about his favorite additions for 2020!

"Band-in-a-Box continues to evolve as an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to produce not only new compositions and arrangements, but also perform them with excellent musical “talent”. It also provides educational and training tools for keyboardists and guitarists. It’s easy to use the basic functions, and challenging enough to keep you occupied for years. BIAB provides education, inspiration, a “live” band to aid in practicing, and anything from backing tracks to full performances for recording."
-Sound-Guy, www.gearslutz.com

How I Use Band-in-a-Box® to Create Shots/Chops

Band-in-a-Box® user Henry Clarke creates a lot of great songs with Band-in-a-Box®, and he's shared his steps for creating the shots/chops within his recent song Lonely in a Crowd.

To watch Henry's video, click here.

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!
(there's probably more instruments out there that we DON'T know than we DO know)

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?

Band-in-a-Box® 2020 Portuguese for Windows is Here!

Existem mais de 50 novos recursos no Band-in-a-Box® 2020! Existem aprimoramentos no RealTracks (RealTracks vocais com som mais suave, RealTracks Engrossados, Substitutos de RealTracks e MultiFrases). A maioria dos RealDrums agora possui RealCharts (com notação de bateria precisa). Há um novo navegador de artistas do RealTracks para encontrar informações/biografias/links/listas de RealTracks em todos os artistas. Um novo Navegador de recursos permite que o usuário novo ou "esquecido" encontre e use facilmente a maioria dos recursos/teclas de atalho/documentos em uma única janela. Equalizar Tempoaprimoramentos na Seleção de Músicas, baixo/bateria ou apenas bateria nas introduções automáticas, 3.400 títulos adicionados, aprimoramentos no MusicXML, visualização de guitarra para "Canhotos" e "Estudantes", aprimoramentos de arrastar e soltar, exibição de várias janelas do Interpretador de Acordes de Áudio e muito mais!

COMPRE/ATUALIZE, & BAIXE AGORA!

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 Mac Update Ready!

Just because Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac is here doesn't mean we've forgotten our 2019 users!

If you're still using Band-in-a-Box® 2019, make sure you download the latest patch update (b324) for an updated splash screen (macOS 10.12 and 10.13 users), smoother Song Titles dialog, access to your (purchased) RealTracks Set 328, and we've corrected the reported issue with opening songs from older versions of Band-in-a-Box in the 2019 version.

Learn more about this patch and download it here.

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!

Band-in-a-Box® - My New Favorite Thing

Did you know we have a My Favorite Things forum? We encourage you to share your favorite features in Band-in-a-Box and RealBand there, along with what features you use the most and why - we LOVE getting feedback!

Like the latest post from Tangmo:

My New Favorite Thing - Extra Style PAK #9 with Loop Pack #2

I set up an eight bar progression with some simple pushes, shots, holds, and rests for reference. Then I started auditioning styles--Three hours later, I am invigorated, inspired, and just plain smiling big. Really CHOICE! From "down to earth" to eclectic, this is a really fun pak.

Great job, folks!

Thanks Tangmo!
