Just finished this original tune (It's An Old Heartbreak). Used _LVLNPOP.STY Country Ballad w/ Backing Violin. I played guitar on it and did the vocal. Used Cakewalk by Bandlab as my DAW. Any feedback is appreciated.

Hey Charlie,

Thanks for sharing, a really wonderful track. Enjoy the video, the graphics are really fun.

My only feedback would be maybe bring the guitar up a little more in the Mix. It's some great playing, It would be nice to have it out front a bit more.

Great job, keep sharing!

Nice work Charlie - I also really liked this! Nice job on the video as well. You did some really crafty work on the guitar too, with a wicked groove to boot.

Thanks for sharing smile

Country as it is supposed to sound! Awesome work here Charlie. I liked everything about this one.

This sounds like an old George Jones song and I mean that in a very positive way.

Charlie,

This is a sensational listen. The lyric concept really appealed to me... very clever! You've' definitely got the knack for creating and producing quality music! The lyric video is also very engaging.

All the best,
Noel

Hello Charlie,

This is the music I grew up on and by which I learned to play guitar. loved my listen! You really did a nice job on those high notes in the chorus. I couldn't sing that high if you paid me a million bucks!

The lyric is perfect for the era, as are the backing tracks. Very nicely done!

Alan

Beautifully done Charlie!! Great emotional writing and singing. I'm no expert in country but one of the old classic singers would be perfect for this. Perhaps Roy Orbison? Excellent!!! Take care. Greg

Nice song Charlie! I always enjoy your songs and videos... you really know your way around music and video software.

The lyric video was very cool, by the way... I've never seen anything like that before.

Al-David, thanks for the listen and for your comments.

Furry, thanks a lot.


Greg, thank you. I wish someone like Orbison would record it!


Pat, how are you? Thanks so much for your kind comments. The video was done for me by someone. I added a few things to it but not a lot.

PG Music News
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."
