Went back to the beginnings to find this song. I have been struggling finding my creative side. When I first started with BIAB I would add a few chords and start cycling through the styles until something sounded interesting. This is how this song came to be.

I feel so mellow after listening to this. Very relaxing. It reminds me somewhat of Chris Isaak and the Silvertones. I enjoyed it!

Really liked the 'vibe' feel in the band backing you up..good choice of style!
And your playing is crisp and clear as always.
I liked the turn to the major sense as you neared the end.
Overall, sounded great.

Very, very nice!

In the beginning I was thinking David Gilmour/Pink Floyd... later I was thinking Santana, but I was wrong... It was Scott C. smile

Has an original Fleetwood Mac Albatross vibe to it. NICE!

Liked that - some very tasteful playing and pretty melody lines.
A very nice instrumental.

A good listen, Scott. The backing is very cool - and the perfect bed for your guitar. The playing is quite "reflective"... thoughtful, pensive.

Nice.

Scott,

I really enjoyed the melody on this and your guitar tone ( sounds a little different from your previous slow tunes?)is sweet.
That Americana guitar track is perfect behind your lead.
A cinematic listen!

Wow - I really enjoyed this! Sounds like an introductory piece you'd find on a Pink Floyd tune, particularly Echoes or Animals. Someone else mentioned Fleetwood Mac's Albatross, and that is true as well. Very calming, and very spacey. The kind of music you can close your eyes and drift away to.

I know the feeling when you aren't as inspired as usually. You'll be glad to know it definitely doesn't show here. Great work, and thanks for sharing smile

So glad you like the tune. Thanks for taking the time to add a comment it is appreciated. Love the Chris Isaac reference. I remember awhile back he had a tv show I used to watch.

What a lovely, sad progression. That high and lonesome, tasteful lead play and tone fit in just great.

This is a really nice one, Scott. Like rayc mentioned it reminds one (in the most positive sense) of the "old" Fleetwood Mac with the great Peter Green on guitar.

If this song isn't perfect for romantic hours which one would be? Left me in a very, very, very pleasant mood.

I like it a lot, Scott.

Thanks Will for checking out the song. Thanks so much for the very kind comments. Very humbling comparisons and both are guitar heroes of mine.

Well done Scott C! I admired the overall vibe on this. I also found this very easy to listen and I really dug the chord progression. A minor is a great key choice too and quite enjoyed those guitar licks. Keep it up!

Scott, dunno if you submit to the music libraries or not but this has a very cinematic feel to it. Like it could fit in a variety of scenes and situations.

As always it is classy and well performed. Really like the tone also -- it fits very nicely in the mix.

The chord progression was every effective. Everything is hittin' the note!

Hello, Scott

Really nice playing!
Repetition of a short melody pattern is very effective.
I think the image of the cold wind is accurately reflected in the melody.
Coldness is coming straight to me.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows!

There are Notation Enhancements in the NEW Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows! These include:
•A new button in the Print Options dialog which lets you quickly print a "chords only" fake sheet. You can also access this from the right-click menu on the chord sheet.
•A new track type (Drums) is now available for The Melody and Soloist tracks.
•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 The line.)
•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. Previously, it played the song from the beginning of the current bar.
•Holding down the [Ctrl] key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
•In The Notation Windows Options dialog, The clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
•Pressing The space bar plays the song from the current time location, not the current bar.
•The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
•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.
•There's a keystroke entry notation 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.
•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.
•You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
