I had a little fun with this one. I still could not put away my overdrive pedals after my last song with Robert. The song title comes from an inside joke with an old friend that I played in a band with when we were teenagers. If we heard a really wild band like Led Zepplin or Hendrix he would say wasn't that Fluffy. So this one is for Jim.
It is a basic three chord song style that we used quite repeatedly in the late 60's.

Scott,
Oh yeah... let that freak flag fly I say!
Nice psychedelic layers in the guitars here- particularly at the beginning and end. The atmosphere is from the era I very much enjoy as you know and though the equipment you are using now must be different from teenage band years ( what was the name??), the chops are still there.
May I use your word... COOL!

Robert

Thanks Robert. In the late 60's in Manitoba there was a band that took the country by storm. They were called the Guess Who. Did very well on the International market. There was an amp builder called Gar Gilles. He build amps for the Guess Who called Garnet Amps. He build amps modeled after the Marshall. Very big amps and very loud. Every garage band in Manitoba had Garnet Amps. Going into Winnipeg to get "your amp" was a right of passage for any young rocker.

I (Bud - not the younger wife) was 22 in 1968 and had spent my college years working with bands...managing and even a little studio work. All meaning IMO YOU NAILED IT!

I would term this "literate psychedelia" if I might coin a phrase. Meaning that it appeals to more folks than just the "twirlers" as Gregg Allman called them smile

Us forum members are all the better for you "having a little fun."

Really good work.

Bud

Wow, what a tune! Those guitars are fantastic. The mixing job on this is superb. It has a certain feeling of "epicness" to it, if you will. Again - I can't stress how well done the guitarwork here is!

Thanks so much for sharing, Scott smile

Thanks so much Floyd for checking out the song. Also thanks for the comments on mixing. You gave me so very good tips when I first started on the forum and have been working very hard on that part of the song production. It is appreciated.

Hey Scott,

Really cool! Sent me back to about 1968, or thereabouts. Iron Butterfly meets Zeplin??? Your fun carried over to us. Enjoyed your guitar work tremendously. Reverb and chorus ... yeah! Very creative and interesting. Thanks for the "trip"!

PG Music News
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!

Learn more about the different features of the Band-in-a-Box® StylePicker here.

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)

(read more about this feature in our Band-in-a-Box 2020 for Mac Online Upgrade Manual.)

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.
You can't remember hotkeys and want to review them.

Watch this new feature in action when you jump to the subject in our New Features video: 10:20 - New Feature - Feature Browser
