It's been awhile since I've had any time to write/produce. My work schedule has been insane! I had a day off today, so I finished this one up that I started a week or so ago. It's a song I wrote to honor all the Grandma's that I have known. All RealTracks/RealDrums, with a couple fill in tracks of percussion and organ that I played. All the vocals are me (once again, cheap labor). I hope you enjoy it!

The Grandma Shuffle

Here are the lyrics...

The Grandma Shuffle
Words and music Copyright Stephen W. Young

Grandma was a good old soul
Didn't lie, steal, or cheat
She kinda shuffled as she walked across the floor
Sorta mopped it with her feet
I never felt a more gentle hand
Or saw a sweeter smile
When Grandma would sing her lullabies

Everybody dreams of the good old days
When Grandma's shuffle could chase the blues away

We all used to laugh at her
And all her funny ways
I can't remember all the things she said
But I can still hear her pray

Everybody dreams of the good old days
When Grandma's shuffle could chase the blues away

Everybody dreams of the good old days
When Grandma's shuffle could chase the blues away

Hi Steve.

Really nice feel to this track right from the first bar.

A great choice of RTs and excellent vocals with very smooth harmony. The understated Hammond track was just sublime. Listening to the song, I could actually picture the band playing it! All this, plus a mix that's spot on.

Did I say I like it?

ROG.

Steve,

Very enjoyable song. Great tracks. Great mix. Terrific vocals and harmonies.
(I just keep the above in a file to copy and paste when you post a song)

I REALLY liked your "economy of words". Say what you need to say and done.
(a sign of someone who know what they are doin')
Must be "grampa/grandma good old days" month...

Like my dad used to say... "Son, you need to come by more often..."

Great job. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

Hi Steve,

This is brilliant. Writing, arrangement, mix, performance, you've nailed it! It's an incredibly professional sound that you've managed to capture. Seems to me that yet again you have redefined the concept of excellence.

All the best,
Noel

Hi Steve, as usual you have raised the bar again!

Super song, great vocals and backing tracks. I really dug that organ.

Two thumbs up.

Very nice song, kind of country blues! Great job.

Did you harmonize yourself or use a digital harmonizer?

Josie,

Thanks so much for your comments! Maybe the memories this invokes was because you were such a bad little girl??? On the other hand, all my memories of Grandma are so sweet and peaceful...

MountainSide,

Thanks so much for posting your comments. The older I get, the more sentimental I get!

ROG,

I really appreciate your input! Glad you like the song!

Sixchannel,

I really appreciate your time and comments, Ian! Thanks!

Floyd,

I am a fan of your work. I really appreciate your taking the time to listen and comment. I hope to have more time to devote to writing and producing again in the near future! Thanks for your kind words!

Gibson,

Thanks so much for your kind words, Alyn! I don't remember my paternal grandmother. She passed away when I was a few months old, but I heard wonderful stories about her. This song is really a tribute to a compilation of wonderful grandmas that I have known (my wife included - and no, I didn't marry my grandma ) Thanks again, Alyn!

Always good to hear from you, my friend! I trust you are keeping everything together Down Under! I do appreciate your kind and thoughtful words!

OCC,

So nice to hear from you. Haven't seen you around for a while. Hope you are doing well! Thanks so much for your very kind words! My schedule has been so hectic the past year, maybe I should listen to some of my songs so I can relax! Thanks once again for your generous comments!

Mario,

So good to hear from you! Hope you are thawing out up there! I'm nursing a sunburn here in Texas! Always good to hear from you, my friend. Thanks for the kind words.

(and if you open the 32-bit version, the "splash screen" will state "32-bit")

NEW! Style-style-style Additions and Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows!

With over 64 new features and enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019, we've made sure to add to, enhance, and update some of the Style features within the program: StylePicker, StyleMaker, and Song Titles browser within the StylePicker!

StylePicker Enhancements:
-If the style list needs rebuild, it tells you that within the StylePicker, instead of a message that requires a response.
-The rebuild is faster than before by 75%. It takes 1/4 of the time now.
-While the style list is being rebuilt, you can see the progress inside the StylePicker.
-The style list can be filtered by a specific RealTracks/RealDrums/MIDI SuperTracks or RealTracks/MIDI SuperTracks in a certain number range.
-You can filter the style list by a specific Xtra Styles PAK.
-The dialog to select an Xtra Styles PAK has a button to take you to the PG Music website that shows information about Xtra Styles PAKs.
-The StylePicker can list all styles (including N/A styles) in the default display.
-The Set number display is improved, including sort by type and Xtra styles.

StyleMaker Improvements:

-The new MIDI velocity offset allows you to make styles with altered loudness for MIDI tracks.
-Styles can be saved with information like a memo, examples, genres, and more, which will be displayed in the StylePicker.
-You can import information from another style. This is useful when you are making a similar style.
-A style can have a huge number of RealTracks (up to 70!) because the StyleMaker now supports RealTracks multi/medley feature, which allows a single track to have up to 10 simultaneous playing of RealTracks.

Song Titles Browser Enhancement

-We’ve added 300 more song titles including requests from users, so there are now over 10,600 titles.
-The chord density filter is available, and it’s also displayed in the memo.
-The chord complexity filter is available.
