Well, that's my sort of thing! I love everything about this track, especially the guitar parts - excellent! I love the engineering and mi: nice and tight and chunky. Super vocals, especially the harmonies. A knock out track!

What a great opening!!

Drums sound great! I love a "leathery" snare and this one POPS!

Chris' vocals and harmonies are outstanding.

Delicious guitar! Sweet!

A nice change up at the end to make it even MORE listenable...

Excellent all around. Great listen.

Thanks very much, Floyd! Drums are processed through iZotope Neutron.

And yeah, that bit at the end is the best part of the song for me, thanks for mentioning that smile

Those guitar chops are top shelf for sure!

Super vocals also.

This is a keeper.

Very, very good.

Thanks very much, Robert!

I wouldn't change a thing here - thanks for sharing!


Thanks for stopping by, Deryk, I appreciate it!

- All the backing tracks and the comped drum track were hitiin’ the note.

Lastly, but not least, the mix is perfecto.

Kudos!!!

J&B


Thanks for mentioning the outro, that's my favorite part of the song smile

For the guitars, one of the things I've learned in my old age is that less is more, especially when working with a vocalist. I always listen back and ask myself if the guitar is adding anything to the song, if not, it's gone.

And thanks for the comments on the mix also! Makes my day to hear that from someone like you smile

Thanks, David!

Guitar is a Strat through S-Gear, but I also do some processing after the fact. Always trying new things to try and get that ultimate tone, sort of a Holy Grail thing I guess smile

Band-in-a-Box® - Boxing Clever - Sound on Sound #TBT

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® is more than 30 years old? I stumbled across this 1990 magazine article explaining the relatively new program, and think it's an enjoyable read for any Band-in-a-Box user - it really shows that we are always listening to user feedback when developing our program!

Read the article: Boxing Clever: Band-In-A-Box Software

A few of my favorite statements:

"The intention of PG Music's Band-In-A-Box package is to couple that speed and convenience with the improved flexibility of the personal computer. Versions are available for the Atari ST, Mac, and PC compatibles. Have the programmers succeeded? And can they rid themselves of the stigma of the auto-accompaniment section? Given the above state of affairs, the first hurdle that the program has to overcome is one of acceptance and, frankly, a name like 'Band-In-A-Box' is a bad start."

(I think our name was a great start!)

"The final results are, to say the least, impressive. Band-In-A-Box achieves something that most hardwired auto-accompaniment sections have never been able to do - inject a degree of feel into the music. It really does sound more human than so many of the computer generated pieces I've heard."

"...I'm quite convinced that PG Music will have a winner on their hands. This is one piece of software that you can get more out of than you put in."
