My latest recording made using the Drums, Bass & Organ from the _BADLUCK.STY (Xtra PAK).

I have added vocals plus rhythm, lead & slide guitars.

The song was mixed using Audacity and various effects such as reverb and echo added.

I wrote this song in the late 70's for the band that I was in at the time (ie. Aces High).
An original live recording of it can be heard at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=68z2hYXitGU

Love the laid back groove you have happening on this.
Great riff, very hypnotic and memorable. Nice job on all the guitars, I especially like that tasteful outro solo. Vocals sound good too.
Good song, enjoyed the listen!

Thanks for listening until the end.
I really enjoyed building up that guitar solo.
I tried to get a Doors feel to this song, but there's not much chance that an old guy from the North East of England can sound like Jim Morrison. laugh

Very cool tunes. I did the Doors vibe right away. Super vocal and very nice work on the guitar

This definitely has that trippy 70s vibe going on. Sounds a bit like The Doors in my opinion. Nice fade out at the end. The vocals and guitar sound great. Over all very well done.

What a tune, Andyman smile I really enjoyed the vibe of this one, it had me swaying for sure! I agree with those above who said it in that this reminds me of The Doors, for sure.

Thanks for sharing!

You've certainly kept that seventies vibe a live.
One small criticism at least to my ear is that the vocal gets a little lost in the mix.
Other wise I really enjoyed all fascists of the tune.
Well done.

Thanks for the kind comment Scott.
Yeah, I know what you mean about the Doors vibe.
It's strange how that only really came about after I had added the slide guitar.

Btw, I've just re-posted the song on Soundcloud as I've added backing vocals on the chorus.

There's also another new version of the song which has a slightly faster tempo and is sung in a different key by my son:

It's been said but, yes, the Doors feel is definitely there. And maybe a hint of JJ Cale with the cool laid back groove.

Very nice performances...vocals and guitar.

We enjoyed it!

YES! I caught some of the Mr. Mojo Rising vibe!! I think the vocals could be a bit louder. Cool stuff!! Take care. Greg

Very well done!
Your guitar sounds great and the backup harmonies work well.
I agree with others that your vocals would benefit from a boost in volume, otherwise its all good. Will head over for a listen to the faster version.

Updated Song Titles Browser in Band-in-a-Box® 2020!

If you're looking for a Band-in-a-Box® Style in the feel of a familiar/popular song title, then the Song Titles Browser option in the Band-in-a-Box® StylePicker is the perfect feature for you!

With Band-in-a-Box® 2020, we’ve added 3,400 more song titles including requests from users, so there are now 14,000 titles to search from!

Just type in a familiar song title or artist name - once you have found the song, press the [OK - Find Matching Styles] button. This will take you to the StylePicker window with styles that best match the tempo, feel, and genre of the selected song title.

Didn't find the song you were searching for? Post your title request to our Wishlist forum: Songs to add to Band-in-a-Box Titles database - we think that the 3,400 new titles added with Version 2020 is proof that we're paying attention!

SongPicker Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac!

The Band-in-a-Box® SongPicker has been enhanced with our newest 2020 version!

The SongPicker now builds faster for large song lists (>30K and up to 60,000 songs). The [Song] button (or the [Open] button) now has 3 additional menu items to launch the SongPicker.

- Open SongPicker in Current Folder: This opens the SongPicker in the current folder of the last loaded song.
- Open SongPicker in Home Folder: This opens the SongPicker in the home folder, which is Applications/Band-in-a-Box/MySongs or as set in the SongPicker.
- Open SongPicker in Favorite Folder: This launches the Favorite Folder dialog which allows you to choose any previously used folder where a song was loaded from, and then open the SongPicker in that folder.

In the SongPicker, there is a new “Open in Home” option. If this is enabled, the SongPicker will always open in the home folder instead of the current folder when you press the default [Song] button to open the SongPicker.

Searching for songs matching a chord progression or melody has been enhanced. There are three new checkboxes: "Key must match exactly," "Chord Extension must match exactly", and "Time Signature must match."

Click here to jump to the SongPicker subject in our New Features video to learn more. (32:11)

New "Feature Browser" in Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac

Band-in-a-Box® has so many features! We add 50 new ones with every version, so you may have forgotten all the different things that Band-in-a-Box® can do. Fortunately, with the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2020 we've solved this issue by added a Feature Browser!

How does it work? Access this feature by clicking on the [?] button on the main screen of the program or pressing the / Enter keys on the Chord Sheet. This dialog lists many features of the program and allows you to browse them, find the feature by text filter, read descriptions about the feature, find how to launch the feature, access to the online information or video about the feature, and do more.

Examples of a few situations where this feature is helpful:

-You know about a feature but don't know how to find it. Just type a part of the feature name and you'll see the hotkeys, menu, and toolbar info on how to launch it. For example, if you want to launch the Chord Builder but don’t know how to do it, type "builder" in the text filter, and you will quickly find the Chord Builder.
-You are exploring available features for Band-in-a-Box. For example, if you are a guitar player, type the word "guitar" and you'll see what's available.
-You prefer "one-stop-shopping" and would like to launch features from the same dialog.
-You are learning the program and like to browse or watch videos about topics you're interested in.
