This song came together after I was playing with some harmonics and the track got built around it. I was going to upload it then I thought Robert might be able to convert it to a song with lyrics.

This is the original song:

Changes

This is the band:

It's fun and interesting to hear the original.

When we were about half way through Janice said that it reminded here of part of the soundtrack for the movie Dune. It does have a cinematic feel.

You, the white strat, the amp and the fx created some fine engaging guitar over some well thought out backing tracks.

I'm not knowledgeable (but trying to learn a bit) about guitar fx but they created a really cool sound particularly with the delay.

Nice!

Really cool sounding...
You play so well & tastefully...
I'm glad you included a link to "The Atlas of Remote" so I could compare the two...
I also really liked that collaboration.

Scott,

Nice to hear the original... It has a "majestic" feel to it. Distinctive.

Sound like a soundtrack for a large army heading into battle...

The Wah is cool!! Enjoyed the listen.

Hi Scott,

That's a very nice solo you did in this song! That is something I must learn one day...
And I liked you used that DOOMED-style as I did with Strnger in my house (second part).
You only slowed it down a bit more. I nearly could sing along.

Bye for now,
Hans

Nicely done.

Scott, this is definitely movie material, maybe a march for an emperor. Super chops, as always, but your tones took it over the top for me. Great work here.

Robert's vocal is excellent in the collaboration version.

Scott you should be very proud of the original version and both of you should be very proud of the collaboration.

As others have said, it's got a very cinematic feel, a slow and steady march forward. Very evocative.

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

Scott,

This is great. I love all the textures and layers. Has kind of a Daniel Lanois vibe which I love.

The kind of piece that puts some ooomph in your step. Cinematic? Yes...but also the soundtrack for the best way to get through a day--calm and purposeful. Good stuff.

This is really cool!!! Reminds me of the songs of the 70's.....the longer you listen, the deeper you get. Love the way the drums work with that melody which has kind of a Celtic feel. Wonderful work guys!!! Take care. Greg

Hi Scott,

It's great to hear the song before it became "Atlas of the Remote".

You've definitely got a knack for making instrumentals very engaging for the listener. This one was no exception.

I'm really pleased that it engaged Robert to write words because "Atlas of the Remote" is one of my all-time favourites from the two of you.

Thank you for posting this and giving us all an insight into your song's journey.

All the best,
Noel

Scott,
Enjoyed it much. Unusual in a very good way. Got a hint of darkness in it, but listens very well.

Thank you for sharing!

Built-in Audio Chord Wizard Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2020!

Our Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Windows version includes some great enhancements to the Built-in Audio Chord Wizard!

-The built-in Audio Chord Wizard is now accessible from the [Audio Chord Wizard] button.
-The Audio Edit window now displays chords and tempos for each bar. They are shown when the Audio Chord Wizard mode is active so that you can see the tempo for each bar as you set the bar lines.
-When you start entering bar lines, the program automatically sets the tempo to the tempo of the first bar.
-Once the tempo of the first bar is set, the program automatically moves the location of the first bar of audio over so that the visual space of the count-in bars is visible.
-After you’ve added the bar lines, IF you adjust the first or second bar and the tempo of the first bar changes accordingly, the program automatically changes the tempo of the song to match.
-Multi-window display. This gives the Audio Chord Wizard a multi-window view so that you can see and edit both the Audio Edit window and the Chords Sheet at the same time. This display is best viewed with a small toolbar mode. This allows you to see the chords as they are being interpreted by the wizard.
-The Audio Chord Wizard can send the transcribed MIDI notes to the Soloist track for further analysis by the user (via Piano Roll or Notation window). Note that this is a "snapshot" view every 8th note of the pitches present, not an attempt at polyphonic transcription. To use this feature, enable the "MIDI to Soloist" check box.

Read more about these enhancements here, or jump to the New Feature - Audio Chord Wizard (ACW) Enhancements section of our New Features video here.

With Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Windows, the Guitar window has been remade and now supports the left-handed (in addition to right-handed) guitar and student view!

The student view is the view a student (or YouTube video watcher) would have of the (right-handed) guitar facing him with the head at the right and low notes at the top. There's also a left-handed student view, so all 4 possible views are supported.

To change the view, press the [Guitar] toolbar button to open the Guitar window and then the [Settings] button.
