Not getting that Band vibe here...maybe a little Mellencamp but mostly a LOT of Kenny!

We streamed it several times on a day trip today and it had Janice singing harmony immediately and talking about how "danceable" it sounded.

One word really comes to mind: Memorable. It just invites more plays. Listening now on the monitors and it sounds great as it did on the Subaru system (a good one).

This is one of those standout nothing left to add nothing left to take away mixes.

Fiddle is amazing...don't have that in the 2018 Mac...hopefully will when 2019 is released.

Percussion is perfect for the stripped down lyric and groove. And the lyric showcases your ability to say things in cool and unique ways.

Great!!!

I got a kinks vibe from this, and I loved the vocals and the band sound.

Enjoyed this well done .

Thanks

Wow, Kenny! This is superb! I did pick up a little Band vibe in it. I've always been a fan of The Band, especially after The Last Waltz.

But Like Bud and Janice said, this is definitely YOU. Your craft is coming through loud and clear on it, and I really like it. The energy in this song is just right for the lyrics, and the choice of instruments and style is perfect. I wouldn't change a thing!

Amazing write. Sounds like a instant classic.

Awesome BAND. Love the percussion. Excellent mix.

One of your all time best vocals. In-the-pocket energy (without the "too hot" thing ever). Whatever you are doing....keep it up!!!

Incredible stuff.

thanks Floyd,

my hearing is making a comeback, makes it easier to mix

I think it pales in comparison to your productions.

Always enjoy your lyrics, so well written! And that signature vocal too. I see a couple people mentioned a lost track from the band, I didn't notice that yesterday, but it does have that sort of vibe about it.

Very good, Kenny, as your songs always are!


Thank you Dave

Kenny this is your best to date IMHO. Super groove and backing tracks and an outstanding vocal. Well done!

This sounds like a blend of Smookie and New Riders of the Purple Sage to me. But it really is Kenny at his best.

Super song!

Your vocal style is really perfect in this song.
Great arrangement and performance.
I have to admit to being disappointed by the lyrics of the chorus but that's probably because I'm verbose, at best, and way too wordy. If it were mine I'd see it as a missed opportunity to try to be a clever dick but to everyone else it's a humdinger.

Ha!

great comment (subtle as a brick) of course you're absolutely right

why not write a song as a 20/21 year old with a one track mind

thank you for your listen and kind words

Can`t think of anything that could be better on this fun song... except maybe to dance to it!

Kenny,

This has such a nice feel to it . . . don’t know why it reminds me of the Counting Crows--could see Duritz doing this . . . just has that vibe to me. Well put together production wise. . . and a nice hook and vocal keep my ears engaged. Nice work, good luck with it.

My best to you,

Deej

What a tune! The first thing that caught my ear was the somewhat unusual percussion on it. The groove is absolutely infectious, and all the while unique. And of course, your vocals soar here - the harmonies on that chorus are fantastic.

Wouldn't change a thing - thanks for sharing smile

Probably what's really important in my dilettante view is that you are trying different things musically. Meaning, you are not shy of experimenting with lyrics, styles and uncommon choices of instruments for the genres. That is what makes stuff interesting! "Angela" sounds great in all respects. I would not change a thing.

Thank you for sharing!

Misha.





Misha,

thank you so much for those kind words

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.

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.
