Very cool tune. Reminds me of a East Coast Cape Breton tune. Well done

That was fun. I learnt the song at school in the early 60s.
I reckon you'd do well to rerecord the vocals as the room effect of the mic places the voice above the mix - in another room as they say.
Cool backing.

Thanks for the advice. Recording and mixing vocals is not my strong suit.

I enjoyed your song... the little breaks added some extra spice to the production... only wished you had added lyrics.

TLMelvin, that was a fun tune that had a nice creative use of stops in it! The bass sounded great on those breaks! Thanks, Torrey

What a fun little tune! I love how cheerful it sounds. It has a wonderful groove, and is hard not to move along to it. I'm just imagining this sounding great in a live setting.

Great job and thanks for sharing smile

The Band-in-a-Box® Flash Drive Backup Option

Today (April 5) is National Flash Drive Day!

Did you know... not only can you download your Band-in-a-Box® Pro, MegaPAK, or PlusPAK purchase - you can also choose to add a flash drive backup copy with the installation files for only $15? It even comes with a Band-in-a-Box® keychain!

For the larger Band-in-a-Box® packages (UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, Audiophile Edition), the hard drive backup copy is available for only $25. This will include a preinstalled and ready to use program, along with your installation files.

Backup copies are offered during the checkout process on our website.

Already purchased your e-delivery version, and now you wish you had a backup copy? It's not too late! If your purchase was for the current version of Band-in-a-Box®, you can still reach out to our team directly to place your backup copy order!

Note: the Band-in-a-Box® keychain is only included with flash drive backup copies, and cannot be purchased separately.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first? If your flash drive (or other USB plug) doesn't have a symbol to indicate which way is up, look for the side with a seam on the metal connector (it only has a line across one side) - that's the side that either faces down or to the left, depending on your port placement.
