Hi All,

Here's something folky and a bit vintage sounding - this is called Avalanche.

Summer days
The lost and found
Shades of green
An old ghost town
Voices fading
Old telephones
A changing world
Outside the zone

And I’m so buried
I’m so buried
I’m buried in your avalanche

Pictures hidden
Away in my mind
Somethings going down
The perfect crime
Whispers falling
On the pillow case
Sad blue eyes
Gone without a trace

And I’m so buried
I’m so buried
I’m buried in your avalanche

Bang your drum
East to west
Counter clockwise
This is not a test
Middle of nowhere
In the morning skies
The rain is falling
On the time that flies

And I’m so buried
I’m so buried
I’m buried in your avalanche

Hi rsdean,
I like your voice and how you sing this. Reminds of more simpler times, when people had the spiritual space to explore honest moments and reflect. Thanks for sharing.

Yep, folky and a bit vintage sounding.

Nice mix and vocals, evocative without being specific.

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Bob, vintage & folky indeed - though the bass line is a bit busy - you've pulled together an ace arrangement and your intimate vocals work well within it.
I still get that pleasant Rod McKuen vibe.

Bob,
Ethereal lyrics and that smoky texture to your voice which grounds the song nicely. Love that 12-string!
I`m enjoying your creative output-you are bringing us so many good songs.

Really nice work here smile It has a very, very unique quality to it. It definitely has a modern approach to it, and the vocal delivery adds an almost haunted vibe to it. Very interesting lyrics too to help propel the whole thing.

You should be proud of this - thanks for sharing!

Love this mix. It is nice and soft and your vocals really shine.

Just a really well mixed, warm and intensely enjoyable song.

I really loved the opening imagery:

Beautiful. Thanks for sharing. smile

A little folky with a vintage sound, just the way I like it.

Your vocal was top notch as was your mix but the lyrics took it over the top for me.

Excellent work that I thoroughly enjoyed.

Bob,

What a great vibe this has! Love the vocal; meshes so well with the sound you’ve created. I’m not quite sure I follow the lyrics, BUT I’m not one to think it matters. To me, a song is a mesh of word, lyric, melody, harmony, etc. There’s enough mood and emotion here to make to keep me listening, and the chorus keeps it compelling. Very well done.

Kindest regards,

Deej

Sound-Guy has been using Band-in-a-Box® for many, many, many, many, many years - and we still managed to surprise him with some great new features! Read his latest review to learn more about his favorite additions for 2020!

"Band-in-a-Box continues to evolve as an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to produce not only new compositions and arrangements, but also perform them with excellent musical “talent”. It also provides educational and training tools for keyboardists and guitarists. It’s easy to use the basic functions, and challenging enough to keep you occupied for years. BIAB provides education, inspiration, a “live” band to aid in practicing, and anything from backing tracks to full performances for recording."
-Sound-Guy, www.gearslutz.com

How I Use Band-in-a-Box® to Create Shots/Chops

Band-in-a-Box® user Henry Clarke creates a lot of great songs with Band-in-a-Box®, and he's shared his steps for creating the shots/chops within his recent song Lonely in a Crowd.

On top of the usual varieties we offer for Piano, Guitar, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet, Bass, Tuba, Trumpet, Trombone, and more - our RealTracks library also offers a nice selection of Shakuhachi and Kalimba - there's even a Koto RealTrack included in Set 212!

Kalimba: RealTracks Set 271
Koto: RealTracks Set 212

Review - Loops-with-Style PAK 2 for Band-in-a-Box® 2020

"Dr. Dave" Walker is at it again! You may remember his recent reviews of both Band-in-a-Box 2020 for Mac and Xtra Styles PAK 9 - now he has something to say about our Loops-with-Style PAK 2 - check it out: Click here to read...

With money being tight for most musicians, this is a wonderful gift for those on a limited budget. At $29, it offers months and years of fun and experimentation, bringing many ideas to fruition as songs with enough variation so that your audience doesn’t jump to "aw, that's a computer!" while still keeping the power of the software in your hands.
-"Dr. Dave" Walker

Thank you again Dr. Dave for the great review!

My New Favorite Thing - Extra Style PAK #9 with Loop Pack #2

I set up an eight bar progression with some simple pushes, shots, holds, and rests for reference. Then I started auditioning styles--Three hours later, I am invigorated, inspired, and just plain smiling big. Really CHOICE! From "down to earth" to eclectic, this is a really fun pak.
