now that is the icing.
Very good!

Robert


We have done a few upbeat tunes, but you are right, mostly we do slow minor key stuff. I have another upbeat one in the works, but next up will be a slow ballad that Chris wrote.

Thanks for the listen and comments, Robert, appreciated!

Hey y'all, this is over the top good.

The funky groove, the write, the fabulous slinky vocal, the killer guitar, the cool arrangment and the mix...everything is slap down in the pocket for us.

This is one of the tunes where we'd rather just listen more than to parse things out. For us it ALL works.

We listen to music like this (and related to this) daily and this is as good as the best we hear. And we mean that with all the sincerity we can muster!

J&B

PS Yeah I use CLA bass and the bass rider but haven't nailed the clarity that you get. As in the way it cuts through the mix but steps on nothing. Nice.
PPS Glad you added it to SC so we can add it to our playlist smile
PPPS Grace slick leaves psychedelia and joins a funk blues band smile

This has very different feel than most of the tunes I have heard by Blue Attitude. Got this gospel hint of spice in this. Very positive! Vocals, guitar, production is at expert level. Dave, sweet solo!

Thank you for sharing!

Misha.



Hi Misha,
Well, the new, colorful skin is not going to last all summer I'm afraid, next one up will be a minor key ballad smile
Thanks for your positive comments, it is appreciated!

I'll listen again at SoundCloud. A few too many buffering "breaks" and likely not where you intended them. smile


"Fonky"! I like that!

Glad you liked the false ending, that was a last minute addition.

Hi Peter, yeah, I had fun with the last solo. Always nice to get comments like that from a fellow guitarist!

Heard another song of you as well (Bitten twice). Also very well done.
I can not be recorded in a ordinary 'home studio', I think.

Hans Berkhout


Hi Hans,

Thanks for the listen and comments, and thanks for listening to the other song also!

All of the songs we do are just in a home studio with no outboard equipment, just the soundcard into the PC. I do have quite a collection of plug-in effects from both waves and iZotope though which really helps.

Impressive harmonies really iced the funk vibe cake for me with the sexy smooth lead vocal and the bass opening was a great choice for catchy retro flavor. Great job.

Fantastic mix, fun listen!


The fake ending was an afterthought, never done that before in a song, but I thought it turned out pretty good. Thanks for the listen and comments, I appreciate it!

Man, we really need summer to arrive here! With the exception of a couple of nice days it's been much colder and wetter than normal for this time of year.

Thanks for the support, Greg!

As usual with Blue Attitude productions, the standard is very high.
I could listen to Dave's guitar all night. Love the tone, love the notes.
Chris's singing is beautiful. Listen to the change in her voice when she sings 'and butterflies' in the first verse. Sublime.
Thanks for sharing.
Mike

Dave,

I missed this one!

The backing is out-of-this-world outstanding.

I absolutely love this arrangement, Your playing is super and along with Chris's lyrics and vocals, the two of your take this presentation to a level of professionalism that I strive to achieve but have yet to attain. This is as radio-friendly as anything I've ever heard anywhere!

In a word... BRILLIANT!

All the best,
Noel

PG Music News
Band-in-a-Box® Features List!

Every version release of Band-in-a-Box® adds loads of new features and enhancements to the program, which we're sure can sometimes get "lost" in your knowledge of the program's capabilities.

Looking to learn about new features with a specific release? It's actually really easy to locate this information!

Learn tips on the new version (2019) by visiting Help | Tip of the Day and placing a check mark next to "Only Show Tips for Version 2019" (you'll also need to select "Show Tips at Startup", if it's not already).

Access the new features list for older versions in the Help Index of the program - from the left-menu, choose Contents | Features and a list of New Features will show - all the way back to Version 7!

#FeatureFriday

#TBT Band-in-a-Box® Goes to NAMM

As we get ready to head to Summer NAMM this year, we're remembering our time their last year - we had so many visitors stop by our booth!

Click here to take a peak!

Special thanks to Mike and all the RealTracks Artists and PG Endorsers who stopped by. Stay tuned for our Booth Visitors and other happenings from Summer NAMM on July 18-20, 2019! If you find yourself at the event, come say "Hi!" to us at booth 234.

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows StylePicker Feature - Finding RealTracks & MIDI SuperTracks

Did you know... Within Band-in-a-Box®, quickly find styles that use RealTracks (or MIDI SuperTracks!) in a certain range by pressing the [Other] filter button in the StylePicker window and select "Styles that contain RealTracks or MIDI SuperTracks in a number range".

#WisdomWednesday

Band-in-a-Box® Tip of the Day!

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® will show you some helpful "Tips" when you start the program? What a great way for new program users to learn all the features of the program! Want to know Tips on just the latest version? This feature can be adjusted to just show the Tips for that too.

Maybe you're a long-time user of the program, and have this feature turned off? To access Tip of the Day (450+ available!), head to Help | Tip of the Day. Your Tip will appear right away - and you'll have the option of reading the Next Tip if you wanted too! Within this window is where you would also choose to "Show Tips at Startup" (if this is unchecked, you won't see them), or "Only Show Tips for Version 2019".

Here's a few Tips the program informed me of the last time I opened Band-in-a-Box®:

In the Piano Roll window, the 'Ghost Note' function allows you to view a single-channel, and see notes on all other channels display in light grey. This is useful when working with multi-channel tracks.

Want a bigger guitar display? Drag the bottom end of the Guitar Window to change its size, or press the SETTINGS button to set a custom size.

The Printout can use left and right MARGINS. This is useful to make printouts for small paper size or 3 hole paper that requires margins.

Edit | Nudge Chords/Melody. Let's say that you have entered a complete song chord progression, and you then realize that all of the chords starting at bar 23 are 1 beat to late. You can use this feature to slide your chords over by 1 beat.
