Nice work here Graham smile I love the groove, and the playful style the slide guitar is played in. It has a really upbeat and positive vibe to it, which I enjoyed. All in all - a really pleasant and easy to digest listen smile

Thanks for sharing!

Nice melody happening on this one, and I like the tone on the steel. Sounds good!

Hi furry, I really enjoyed the overall tone of this. Fantastic choice of instrumentation, the finger picking guitar really helps set the tone. Very easy to listen to. Great work!

I fully agree with Deryk - particularly the part about the lap steel sounding so playful. Smooth, fun and most enjoyable. Ya did great, Graham! loved the song and the video.

You have a very nice touch with the lap steel, Graham - a real pleasure to hear!

Learn More About the Redesigned Band-in-a-Box® SongPicker!

Wow - how much do you LOVE the redesigned SongPicker in Band-in-a-Box® 2019?!

The SongPicker within Band-in-a-Box® accesses the folder of your choosing for easy opening of all your favorite songs, or song files purchased from a third party or shared by a friend, member of your band, etc.

Now, with this redesigned feature, you can view the chord progression for your selected song without having to open it in Band-in-a-Box® and can copy the information from this window right into a TXT file!

The new progress bar is a great visual aid when you're updating the folder - for instance, if you load the ENTIRE Band-in-a-Box® folder, that's over 15,000 songs - and it's nice to see the progress/confirmation on screen. Not that you'll be waiting long - since the SongPicker now builds lists faster!

Plus, there's so many filters added - searching for the song you want has never been easier!

Click here for a detailed write up on this redesigned feature, or watch the Video - SongPicker Overview.
