Ok, this is my country submission. smile

Using the Passion Style from Xtra Styles 3. Again, my lovely wife Gayle is singing along with me on this one--we rehearsed it in the mountains then came home and recorded it--old school.

Take Me Along
Performed by David and Gayle Snyder


This girl she goes by many names
You know she never looks the same
She comes in like a hurricane
Then the skies clear up after the rain
Sometimes she’s wearing worn out jeans
She’s never aged always sixteen
She was my first stolen kiss
And she’s the keeper of my dreams
She’s with me through my joy and pain
She’s the one who told me I could change
Just count my blessings and change my strings
Open up my soul and sing
When my heart is broke she says she can fix it
There’s nothing to it, ask her who she is
She just smiles and says


I’m your music, I’m your music
And I’m just a song, I’m just a song
But you love me, yeah you love me
So no matter where you go
Or what you think you know
take me along, take me along boy
take me along


Some people say she can look strange
‘Cause her hair is wild and she can’t be tamed
And once she sets your heart on fire
You’ll never ever put out those flames
She told me once you don’t want to miss me
Go ahead kiss me
And you will never be the same



Every morning she says boy
You better get yourself some joy
And don’t you miss this, don’t you miss this
Cause you only get one life
And it goes by at the speed of light
so make the most of it, that’s right

Nice entry there, David. Love that line:
"Just count my blessings and change my strings"
We should all take that advice. Always love reading your lyrics. Your typical excellent production. Keep 'em coming, bro.

Good luck in the contest.

Review - Xtra Styles PAK 9 for Band-in-a-Box® 2020

Remember that wonderful review of Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac we received last month from "Dr. Dave" Walker, Band-in-a-Box 2020 for Mac … WOW!?

Well, Dr. Dave is at it again! He's had a chance to work with the newest Xtra Styles PAK 9, and shares his thoughts in his recent Xtra Styles PAK 9 for Band-in-a-Box 2020 – Worth It? post at Dr. Dave On Music - make sure you check it out!

Sneak peak...
...PG Music has gone deeper into several styles, using more or fewer instruments, adding unexpected ones, and giving some surprising make-overs. Others are more focused versions of particular styles with more extreme attention to the best of that genre. Other ones combine styles that sound great, such as adding a banjo to a rock or blues track, or a jazz sax to a folk style. There are many wonderful combinations to try out that will expand any songwriter or arranger’s palette. These are the things that make certain songs stand out, and experimenting with them is not just fun (a lot of fun!) but it will expand your horizons on what is possible and even excellent. For instance, my light jazz arrangement worked very well as a country song, which floored me, and also as a folk-alt-jazz fusion. One sax solo was worth the price of admission alone, as it sounds terrific in any of the arrangements.
-"Dr. Dave" Walker

Again we say, "Thank you for the review Dr. Dave!" - we really enjoyed reading this enthusiastic review!

The Band-in-a-Box® Panic "Button"

Today is International Panic Day... did you know that Band-in-a-Box® has a "Panic Button"?

What does it do?

Accessible from the Play Menu (or by selecting F12), you would choose this if your MIDI notes are stuck ON and it’s driving you crazy! Also within the Band-in-a-Box® Play Menu is the "Panic should also Reset DXi synth" option, which will clear hung DXi/VSTi notes.
