HiFolks!
This is a song that I wrote several years back for a planned bluegrass album I was planning. It is an old time Celtic sounding bluegrass waltz with a rather moody feel. I hope you enjoy it.

This was very cool. Has a very lamenting feel to vocal. Well done...

You captured that moody sound that you were looking for.

Slow and with melancholy.

I enjoyed the sweetly sad mood of this song and particularly your vocal.
The melody has that traditional ballad feel and the fiddle solo breaks fit nicely.
Well done!

Robert

You nicely captured what I think of as traditional bluegrass. It's a genre I enjoy and your vocals fit very well here. A nice mix and arrangement with everything fitting in the mix as it should. Looking forward to hearing more from you soon.

Enjoyed my listen.

Hello Gary,

Great Bluegrass Waltz! We love how you always resolve to the minor chord. What a nice, easy listen. We loved it! Have a super weekend.

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!
