Hi all. This is my latest effort.
Little different to recent songs.
All comments welcome. Rob

Leaving Narrabri


Can you feel the summer breeze brush against your skin.
Leaning on the door Sill as we drive.

Dont know how long its been, since we said goodbye.
To the folks back home in Narrabri.
...................................................................................................................
And I know you shed a tear and we shared a beer I held you near.
Where gonna give it one more try.

So down this empty road two lonely soles and god only knows.
where gonna make it to the end.
...................................................................................


Bridge

...................................................................................
And I know you shed a tear and we shared a beer I held you near.
Where gonna give it one more try.
(Where going home to Narrabri)

So down this empty road two lonely soles and god only knows.
where gonna make it to the end.
...................................................................................

We'll keep pushing through the night till the sun begins to rise.

One more hill and we'll be home, then we'll back home in Narabri

then we'l back home in Narrabri

We'll just keep along the suns almost gone be it right or wrong.
When we're back home in Narrabri

...................................................................................................................
And I know you shed a tear and we shared a beer I held you near.
Where gonna give it one more try.

So down this empty road two lonely soles and god only knows.
where gonna make it to the end.

Good song, love your vocal on this, and I like the lyrics too.

Great job on the production too, that breakdown at 1:15 and bringing it back at 1:40 worked like a charm and really makes the song something special IMHO, nice one!

What a tune! I really enjoyed this. It is quite catchy, while maintaining a thought provoking theme. It sounds genuine and heartfelt. Not to mention, the arrangement here is on point.

Great work, and thanks so much for sharing smile

What a fantastic song! Maybe it's just me, but I totally got a hint of a Johnny Cash vibe with this particular song. Maybe it's the vocals! I really enjoyed the lyrics to this particular tune. Excellent job.

Can't wait for the next one.

Rob,

A really good lonesome road feeling to this - very nice soulful vocal and that sweetness in the melody makes me want to sing along on the chorus.
The resonator and baritone guitars sound great together.
Very good!

Robert

Hello, Rob

Very nice tune!
Beautifully performed.
I entirely agree with Robert.

Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

Great track and great production. It really fits the Australiana tag. It brought the outback back home to me...
Just a quick note on the lyrics, I think you meant "we're" not "where".

I fully agree with Dave. he summed it up perfectly. This is one of your very best - of the ones I've heard. that was a real joy to listen to. Thanks for the pleasure!

Also, before I forget, the reso guitar with the deep reverb was a real nice touch!

Wishing you well,

Alan

Rob I also think that this is one if not your best today. Super mix, dynamics, lyrics and vocal.

I love these lines "And I know you shed a tear and we shared a beer I held you near.
Where gonna give it one more try.

So down this empty road two lonely soles and god only knows.
where gonna make it to the end."

Great lyrics here.

Two thumbs up.

PG Music News
Customers LOVE Band-in-a-Box® 2021!

Check out some of the latest Band-in-a-Box® feedback we've received:

"There's a saying 'Give a man a fish, feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, feed him for a lifetime.' That's exactly what my friend did in 1990. He taught me how to use BIAB and I've used it hundreds of time to do arraignment and to jam with any style band."

"Love BIAB. I use it daily. Their support is great too!"

"RealTracks are amazing!!! I use BIAB for backtracks in my solo act... Still using the basic package and it's all need..."

"I have used Band in A Box for many years. If it would have been around when I was young, I would have been a much better musician. I use it for all my songs I have written and recorded. With Band In A Box I can sit in my room and sound like a whole band without having to put up with them!"

"If you know something about music and take the time to learn the program, you can make it do some amazing things. It is a great help to songwriters who want to demo their song without paying for studio time. It makes changes and tweaks much easier as well."

"Been using it for so many years. It's a great tool. The instruments that I don't have or play make up the void and it saves so much time. I use this program for every song I write."

"Great tool for the songwriter!"

"An essential part of my studio! I write songs on piano, but I'm not a pianist by a long way. BIAB is like having a roomful of session players in your studio, and just the simple act of taking your basic idea and hearing a skilled pianist play it presents so many new ideas and options you hadn't thought of."

"Powerful, easy to use, inexpensive and they even split the modest payments up if you want. No complaints. Lots of satisfaction."

"I added a steel guitar to a fully produced original. He followed every change like he was in the studio reading the chart. Fascinating technology!"

"I have used it to make backing tracks for six CD's with about 12 songs on each. They make a great gift!"

"It's simply a necessity - buy it now - the staff and support do a great job as well!"

"A great tool for us songwriters!"

"I LOVE Band-in-a-Box!"

"I see it as a very worthwhile investment. In fact, from initial purchase about 8 years ago, using the backing tracks I have made, my income from that investment has returned over 5,000% on the investment!"

continued...

Band-in-a-Box® - Boxing Clever - Sound on Sound #TBT

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® is more than 30 years old? I stumbled across this 1990 magazine article explaining the relatively new program, and think it's an enjoyable read for any Band-in-a-Box user - it really shows that we are always listening to user feedback when developing our program!

Read the article: Boxing Clever: Band-In-A-Box Software

A few of my favorite statements:

"The intention of PG Music's Band-In-A-Box package is to couple that speed and convenience with the improved flexibility of the personal computer. Versions are available for the Atari ST, Mac, and PC compatibles. Have the programmers succeeded? And can they rid themselves of the stigma of the auto-accompaniment section? Given the above state of affairs, the first hurdle that the program has to overcome is one of acceptance and, frankly, a name like 'Band-In-A-Box' is a bad start."

(I think our name was a great start!)

"The final results are, to say the least, impressive. Band-In-A-Box achieves something that most hardwired auto-accompaniment sections have never been able to do - inject a degree of feel into the music. It really does sound more human than so many of the computer generated pieces I've heard."

"...I'm quite convinced that PG Music will have a winner on their hands. This is one piece of software that you can get more out of than you put in."
