I even got a "Hot Blooded - Foreigner" vibe on the verses a little bit.

I liked this a lot. Great work!
Steve, Thanks for giving it a spin. Tom

The solo reminds me of Skinny Leonard. The chords in the verses reminded me a lot of Boston.

Really liked the riff based chorus.

Probably the best hard rock use of BB I recall hearing.

Nice work.

Great song, better than most of the music I hear on my local rock radio station these days.
Dave, glad you liked it, Tom

I could have been listening to Bryan Adams here.

Great driving rock beat. Plenty to like about this song.

As you responded to floyd...rock to blues to country. And you retain the goodness of them all.

Great write, vocal and signature TA production to top it all off.

Hi Tom,

Nearly missed this one!

It's great to see more people rocking on the forum these days and rock doesn't
come much better than this.

Fabulous guitars, especially the solo.

Your vocals just get better and better - you've really got a great voice for this
type of track.

Classic Rock through and through.

ROG.

Hello, Tom

Great Rock tune! Big fun!
I entirely agree with Greg.
This sounds like a 70's classic.
Great groove.
Love the power chords and great solo.
And also your vocals.
Splendid!

All the best for 2018!

Tom,

What an outstanding track. When it comes to rock it's one of the genres that you really excel at.

I apologise for missing this the first time through. It zipped past me and I wasn't even aware that it'd had been on the forum.

This song is such a fine tribute to your production chops, your singing chops, your arranging chops, and instrumental chops.

Excellent.

Regards,
Noel

"tommyad"...

(From the latest headlines, hot off our presses:) "Extra, extra, read all about it! Armada of killer guitars from outer space land on Earth, bringing message of "louder is better", and proceed to blow out our eardrums! See fleeing crowds popped upside the head by perilously potent power chords! Watch rockers being run down by hair-raisingly righteous riffs! President declares state-of-emergency in his pajamas while playing air guitar and lip-syncing in the Oval Office! Could this be "the end", friends crazy ???

Really dug your lyric imagery: "I always look to the sky like a sailor to the sea", and "...like rain moving across the bay", and "boundaries blurred by the path of light". Like, far-freakin'-out, dude laugh !!!

If this is rock, it's certainly "hard" as one, baby!

Off the hook, "tommyad"!

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.
