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

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows was released in December 2018, and included many new features and enhancements - like the enhancements we made to our Notation window!

These include:
-Pressing the space bar plays the song from the current location.
-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.
-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.
-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 it.
-In the Notation Windows Options dialog, the clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
-The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
-You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
-A new track type (Drums) is available for the Melody and Soloist tracks.
-Holding down the Ctrl key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
-There's a keystroke entry 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.
-A new button in the Print Options dialog lets you quickly print a "chords only" fake sheet. You can also access this from the right-click menu on the Chord Sheet.
-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.


There's detailed information on our 2019 notation enhancements here: Band-in-a-Box® 2019 New Feature - Notation Enhancements

Jump to the Notation topic in our Band-in-a-Box® 2019 new features video.

My Favorite Things - Nudge Chords in Band-in-a-Box®

Love this time saving feature.

Ever fill in the chordsheet fully or for part of song, and then discover you want to add or take away an extra beat or more somewhere in the chordsheet.

Nudge chords (melody) from the Edit Menu is your friend here, the dialog will give you all the options either to remove or add beats where its needed.

Love it.
