Hi all. Here is my latest effort.
Its a little sombre but you may like it.

All comments welcome. Rob

Six Feet In The Grave


They'll build me a prison with bars on the windows.
To keep me from loving you.

As I hang from the gallows the last breath inside me
will linger away on the breeze.

Deep down in a canyon with no warming sunshine.
With no one to tend to my needs.

If my life was longer I'd not be so sombre.
Please send me the key to be free.

Bridge

As I lay in the cold dirt there's no need for comfort.
No memories to ponder each day.

In time you'll forget me a long lost tragedy
As I lay six feet beneath clay

Deep down in a canyon with no warming sunshine.
With no one to tend to my needs.

If my life was longer I'd not be so sombre.
Please send me the key to be free.

As I lay six feet beneath clay x 3

That is one sad folk-country-western song. Love the 3/4 and the band. Your vocal is just great. Much enjoyed.

Hi Rob, fantastic choice of instrumentation on this. The arrangement is wonderful to the ears and very soothing to hear. Good use of EFX on the guitar. The vocals harmonize well with the other instruments. Great work!

Nicely done...
The printed lyrics threw me off a few times but was only a minor problem...
I enjoyed new song.

Rob,

I like the way you sing this - deep & dark like the lyrics. If there`a "gallows song" genre yours goes to the top!
Very good.

Robert

What a tune! Love the old school vibes on this, and your vocals and the lyricism behind them are heavy and heartfelt. Easy to sway to, and nicely catchy as well.

Great work and thanks for sharing smile

Really well assembled backing and a perfect chord progression for the terrific narrative.
Your voice sounds great.
Could've been a reflective Nick Cave.

Hi Rob,

A good song, and I like the doubles in the chorusses. I am still learning on that issue.
The subject is indeed a bit sombre, but what could you expect with a title like this...
But it also applies to a situation I'm in now. So I'm convinced you must have sensed that ;-).

Nice weekend,
Hans

A real beauty Robb. Marty Robbins would've been proud to sing this one as it's his style of song in my opinion. Great lyrics and lovely vocals too

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.
