Charlie, Great idea to use the 6th chords. Not usually heard in banjo music. Captures the ear and it works to perfection to set up the following chord choices. This is a very unique sounding piece of Bluegrass. ( not so easy to do ) Tom

Thanks. Yes, I stumbled upon the sound and couldn't resist putting something together. Glad you enjoyed it.

I actually really like the sound the banjo produces. I don't know what it is about it, but the banjo is just so unique sounding. I think you really utilized the banjo sound really well here!

Excellent composition! I love that little banjo line that repeats the two chord sequence, reminds me a bit of Tin Man. Makes the song unique and interesting.

Good stuff, Charlie!

Hi Charlie,

Great tune and performance. This is some real sweet Bluegrass. This is one of the most original banjo sounds I've heard in a very long time - and that you utilized that creativity on a Bluegrass number makes that much more exciting.

Some really nice music here, Charlie. Totally loved it!

Alan

Well done, Charlie.

Terrific chord progression. John Hartford wrote banjo pieces that included chords not usually found in bluegrass, yet kept it sounding bluegrass. You've done that here...

Really nice.

This is a really nice piece. I echo the comments above about the unusual (and captivating) sound from the banjo here. (Almost makes me sorry about all those banjo jokes I tell. Almost. :-) )

Wow - what a tune! The groove on this is unreal. It has so much energy and charisma to it. I can't help but tap my foot, and envision how incredible this would sound performed in a live setting.

Great work smile Thanks for sharing!

As you know the two of us played in bluegrass bands (traditional and progressive) for many years so we are always keen to hear a bluegrass tune on the forum.

The chords definitely took it into the realm of "New Grass." Well done.

Using the mandolin "chops" shows that you have a good feel for the genre.

BTW, Scott Vestal is a fine picker. Used to hear him in a small venue many years ago.

Yep, we like it!!

Thanks for listening Deryk. I had a picture of a small group out under the trees at a festival in my head as I worked out the tune.

Charlie,
A fine tune that really showcases the style ...and then sends it somewhere new ( glad Tom identified the chords that give this an
original flavour).
Toe tapping but relaxing at the same time.

Hello, Charlie

Yes, this is exactly contemporary bluegrass banjo tune.
The chords, Gmaj7 - Cmaj7 that come out repeatedly is not usually heard in banjo music.
Very unique!
And as Noel said, this was a real pleasure to listen to.

Best regards.

Hi Charlie.

Got my foot tapping all the way through.
Enjoyed the suspense the chord structure introduces.
Good one.

Cheers.

Yes, I came across the progression while auditioning styes in another project and it felt at once like such a great hook, I stopped the other project and put this together around it. It sounds so 'right' I'm surprised we don't hear it often in contemporary Bluegrass. Thanks for listening and commenting.

I thought I had commented on this already because I've listened to it a few times...actually, a good number of times.

I have to say it sounds authentic AND new at the same time to me. I'm not going to claim to know the genre as well as many here, but I do listen to it a fair amount. It's just such a great style of music.

I think the newness for me is the chord progressions that are being discuss. I personally, really like the choices you made. I like the unexpected that works!

Well done my friend! And, now for another listen...

Thanks for taking time to listen and comment Josie. I appreciate your kind words about my singing and it only accentuates how sorely we've been missing you as well. Gosh, and we've been missing your fantastic vocals. The fact we both posted a bluegrass tune is a testament of how the stars align on occasion. Hope things are such that we'll be hearing more of you here on the forum.

Yummy banjo licks with a major 7th chorus. Short and sweet - I enjoyed it, all right.

Very cool back track. Banjo was excellent. As Tom said chord changes were very interesting and gave the song a very original sound and feel.

Sounding great Charlie! Love those non traditional major 7ths chord in there.

Those first chords sound like a cross between a Bm and a Gmaj7th somehow. Maybe my ears are playing tricks on me. What was the exact chord notation you typed in BIAB in the first two to four measures?

Sounds great!

Love that picture too. Where did you get that?

The first four measures are Gmaj7|Cmaj7|Gmaj7|Cmaj7| (input into chord chart GJ CJ)

The photo is an internet download from a google search "free and royalty free banjo images"

Thanks for listening. Glad you enjoyed the song.

This is really fantastic. Could be the theme music for a movie.

Come to think of it, maybe it ought to be the theme music for a movie.

Great contribution, nothing less.

RealBand 2019 - A New Look!

Have you opened up your RealBand 2019 yet? You may notice that we've given it a fresh new look! In fact, there are now 3 different looks to RealBand.

See for yourself! Within the program, visit Options | Icon Set and choose from: Classic, Modern 1, or Modern 2.

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows - Choosing to Run 64-bit or 32-bit

We heard you! With the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows we've included the BRAND NEW 64-bit version of Band-in-a-Box®, which works well with the latest plugins and 64-bit OS features! Because not everyone has a 64-bit computer, we include both the 64-bit and 32-bit versions with your purchase - you choose which one to use!

By default, when you install your Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows the 32-bit version will run.

The steps to run the 64-bit version are simple! Just head to your "bb" folder and choose the "bbw64" icon - you'll notice that the Band-in-a-Box® "splash screen" will state "64-bit" as the program opens.
(and if you open the 32-bit version, the "splash screen" will state "32-bit")

Still not certain which version you're running? Within the program, go to Help | About Band-in-a-Box - it'll either state:

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2019 (604)
<--- the number in brackets is the build number - this will change as new patch updates are released
64 bit application

or:

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2019 (604)
<--- the number in brackets is the build number - this will change as new patch updates are released
32 bit application

We hope everyone who can is enjoying their Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit version for Windows!

NEW! Style-style-style Additions and Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows!

With over 64 new features and enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019, we've made sure to add to, enhance, and update some of the Style features within the program: StylePicker, StyleMaker, and Song Titles browser within the StylePicker!

StylePicker Enhancements:
-If the style list needs rebuild, it tells you that within the StylePicker, instead of a message that requires a response.
-The rebuild is faster than before by 75%. It takes 1/4 of the time now.
-While the style list is being rebuilt, you can see the progress inside the StylePicker.
-The style list can be filtered by a specific RealTracks/RealDrums/MIDI SuperTracks or RealTracks/MIDI SuperTracks in a certain number range.
-You can filter the style list by a specific Xtra Styles PAK.
-The dialog to select an Xtra Styles PAK has a button to take you to the PG Music website that shows information about Xtra Styles PAKs.
-The StylePicker can list all styles (including N/A styles) in the default display.
-The Set number display is improved, including sort by type and Xtra styles.

StyleMaker Improvements:

-The new MIDI velocity offset allows you to make styles with altered loudness for MIDI tracks.
-Styles can be saved with information like a memo, examples, genres, and more, which will be displayed in the StylePicker.
-You can import information from another style. This is useful when you are making a similar style.
-A style can have a huge number of RealTracks (up to 70!) because the StyleMaker now supports RealTracks multi/medley feature, which allows a single track to have up to 10 simultaneous playing of RealTracks.

Song Titles Browser Enhancement

-We’ve added 300 more song titles including requests from users, so there are now over 10,600 titles.
-The chord density filter is available, and it’s also displayed in the memo.
-The chord complexity filter is available.
