Nice bluesy vocal. The lyrics are fun filled and inspired. You even included one of my current favorite words, the wonderfully descriptive-"wonky". Great mix. I enjoyed it all. Tom

Great job - thanks for sharing smile
Thank you for listening and for the kind comments.

Thank you Alan it's much appreciated.

Thank you Torrey. Your music is rockin!

(Way over my head.)
It's all in the use of Aux bus separation. Grouping instrument sends to a different buses by side vs middle and then sending different reverbs to each bus to taste. I'll expand on the recording forum.

We recognized that Jack Pearson RT right from the git go. One of the more under rated blues guitarists around IMO.

Just how many cool lines can you pack in one song man?

Top vocal as always and the piano really lays down the feel.

Your mixing experimentations far exceed mine but whatever you did resulted in a mix that sounds top notch on our monitors. The soundstage is laid out so well.

Kudos Mr Gruve!

J&B

Thank you both so much. I'm experimenting with separating the soundstage by using different verbs to instruments busses group by panning. So all my panned instruments go to one bus and I (am currently- it's a work in progress) might send a spring-like verb with short decay to it. Then my middle instruments (minus drums and bass) I send a more traditional room or hall type verb to taste. Then eq the reverbs to each other to minimize over-stepping frequencies. I'll write this out in the recording forum.

And thank you again!

Thank you Tom. Don't you love it when you have a song where you can use a word like "wonky"!

Man, so good! Lyrics are great, can't add anything more that has already been said. Great vocal and groove.

Cool mix too, the way you have everything panned, definitely a headphone listen!

Lawrence,

That new technique of yours works out fine!
Very cool lyrics (of both of you).
The funky piano is great.

I'm late getting here but I'm that I made it! This is one hell of a great song. It's all been said, vocals, lyrics, mix etc, so all I can add is this is funk at its best.

This is a keeper for sure!

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.
