Hi all.

My first posted track so I'm hoping I get this right.
I've listened to lots of the ones posted and am super impressed with the talent around here and read some of the threads in this sub-forum.

This tune was developed directly from the Brent Mason Artist Performance Set 4, with some mods to the instruments, slight change of tempo and I've kept the excellent lead guitar performance because it fits so well.

Enjoy listening (I hope) and if anyone wants the detailed info, I'll post later.

Sound Cloud - These Lonely Streets

I exported the individual tracks to my Tascam DP24SD to add the vocals and backing vocals, but didn't radically alter the BIAB tracks during that process as they sound about as good as they can already.

Nice country song. Very smooth. I always like it when people post their lyrics as sometimes it's hard to hear all the words.

Thanks Belladonna... I also meant to do that, but at the moment, they only exist written in pen on paper. I haven't typed them up (it's that same "lazy day" thing.

When I get home tonight, I'll type them up and post them. smile

Welcome and a well done entry to the forum.

As floyd mentioned all the essentials are well done...vocals and the mix. It sounds very nice on our monitors.

Well done!

Welcome to the showcase, Mr. Jones smile This is a great first submission - it's got really strong vocals, and the arrangement job here is seriously on point. It sounds really professional. The groove is great too - really easy to tap your foot to. I wouldn't bat an eyelash hearing this on the local country station.

Thanks so much for sharing - can't wait to hear more from you!

Great man!

You worked this style really well! Nothing is messy, just very well done.

Great song.

Excellent mix and production too. You kept it simple and warm. Good for you. That's how you do it!

These Lonely Streets - By Mr Jones

I walk along these lonely streets, with nothing on my mind.
I take a trip down Memory Lane, to see what I can find.
I reminise about that kiss, in the days when the sun always shone.
But now the sun's set, there's nothing left, the memories have all gone.

I trace my footsteps, in the darkness, down Lonely Avenue.
Hoping by some chance, you'll still be there.
Your silhouette danced in the moonlight, the moonlight so blue.
Starlight flickered so gently, in your golden hair.

I ride along these broken highways, I take the long road home.
If it's a road that leads me nowhere, I ride it on my own.
With no remorse, I'll stay the course, and discover where this old road goes.
Maybe a gohst town, I can settle down, no one really knows.

I trace my footsteps, in the darkness, down Lonely Avenue.
Hoping by some chance, you'll still be there.
Your silhouette danced in the moonlight, the moonlight so blue.
Starlight flickered so gently, in your golden hair.

Repeat verse one and chorus.

Thanks for the welcomes and compliments everyone... I've been writing songs and playing with home recording for decades and it's still nerve racking posting new stuff to new people, so I really appreciate the feedback. smile

I'm more a rockabilly than a country guy (though my musical taste on whole covers lots of things), so this song is a little bit out of the ordinary for me, but as soon as I heard the artist performace track, I knew I had to write a song for it... The ready made music almost wrote the lryics for me and I'm loving BIAB's ability to quickly make ideas come to life.

Yes, welcome indeed Mr. Jones!! As Floyd said, very nice vocal. You've captured a bit of a retro feel, in a very nice way. Song has a very tangible and powerful emotion to it. Really, really, well done!! Come back soon! Take care. Greg

I agree that you have a great voice for this classic country song.
All the work you put in harmonising the lead vocal and the ooohs throughout are not wasted- its an impressive sounding mix for a first post and I thoroughly enjoyed the song.
Welcome to the forum!

I think Floyd bailed it. I fully agree with him. And, personal welcome to the forums. Love your true country voice. This is the kind of country i grew up on and played so many years. This was a real delight! Best to you.

Oh wow, sorry I went AWOL for a while and missed these lovely comments, thanks all, it's much appreciated. Hopefully I'll get time (and inspiration) soon to do some more. All my time in BIAB over the last week or so has been exploring it's various features in a bit more depth.

Thanks Ember, but I did post the lryics eventually so they are at least in the thread. grin

Customers LOVE Band-in-a-Box®!

Here's some of the amazing feedback we've received lately, from program users just like you!

Arthritic fingers means I find it very difficult to play anything. This program is amazing - and it does use real musicians!
-Bob E.

The power of this program is just unbelievable! It's been a best kept secret for a couple of decades now. A song writer's dream!
-Mike D

This band can practice any time of day ...LOL
-William G

Band-in-a-Box works so simple you could teach a child to do it within minutes - the RealTracks are amazing. Doing an album as we speak. I challenge you to give it a try. I am 60 years old and even though I've played 50 years, I am no engineer. But as a song writer I needed some effective tools to create quality production of my work. This is IT! It's as easy as typing and filling in the blanks. The instructional videos allow you to change settings while watching the pro. I myself purchased every "RealTrack" I could get... Take it from me, don't let this overwhelm you. It is absolutely a writer and solo artist dream!
-John S

Best part of Band-in-a-Box is that it saves me having to program drums, the Real Drummer part of the software is brilliant and natural sounding. I then layer real instruments with guys from my band. As a songwriter, Band-in-a-Box has saved me so much time it's ridiculous.
-Andy B

Incredible Software. Great for ignorance and experts and for anyone who wants to deal with music. If you do not have a hobby and want to have one "Band-in-a-Box" is the best choice. Simple, but if you want to be an expert on it, you need to make an effort to master it perfectly for perfect use. The only disadvantage is if you do not want to become a musician, and use it, you will become a perfect musician. Therefore, be cautious. It's not a toy. ;)
-Ilija B.

Been a BIAB man since '92, such a comprehensive source for music making! So much more to offer than "loops", it allows actual music composition to be realized. Evolve from harmonic ignorance and find out what REAL music is made of!
-Don D.

A must for any musician who wants to improve on his own, or to share his musical ideas in a professional high quality rendition.. You just play with the best musicians and that's great ♪ :)
-Jean-Marie D.

I use Band in a Box all the time. I couldn't be more pleased. It's easy to use and it sounds super-big time!
-Max R.

An excellent tool for generating backing tracks. Saves me hours of MIDI programming. Combines the best of MIDI and live audio samples.
-Steve A.
