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

Beautifully performed.
I entirely agree with Robert.

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.

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows!

There are Notation Enhancements in the NEW Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows! These include:
•A new button in the Print Options dialog which lets you quickly print a "chords only" fake sheet. You can also access this from the right-click menu on the chord sheet.
•A new track type (Drums) is now available for The Melody and Soloist tracks.
•Clicking close to a stave line will put a note on the stave line instead of between stave lines. (Previously, you had to click extremely close to a stave line to insert a note on The line.)
•Double-clicking on the Standard mode Notation window (or on the time line in Editable or Staff Roll mode) plays the song from the current time location. Previously, it played the song from the beginning of the current bar.
•Holding down the [Ctrl] key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
•In The Notation Windows Options dialog, The clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
•Pressing The space bar plays the song from the current time location, not the current bar.
•The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
•The right-click menu in the Editable or Staff Roll mode Notation window has an option to change the current beat resolution. Previously, the only way to do this was to right-click on the time line.
•There's a keystroke entry notation mode - the 'N' mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, up/down cursor to change its pitch, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
•You can now edit any track in the Event List Editor. When The dialog opens, it will show you the MIDI data in the current Notation track.
•You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
