The Old Guitarist, a painting by Picasso, influenced Wallace Stevens to write The Man With The Blue Guitar which led PK Page to write another poem, The Blue Guitar... which Scott/Robert "sampled" to bring you this song.
I read the poems, borrowed part of one line from Wallace Stevens and went off on my own tangent.
Scott almost instantly contributed his tracks ( if you`re going to work with him be prepared for things to move quickly!).
Production I found tricky once I decided to add strings - your observations on how we did are appreciated.

Blue Guitar


so many moons
prisoners of the sun
we still turn for you
the waterwheel drinks
while its spun

if there is no ship to see
in passing morning clouds
why do we cling to dreams
like sailors
in the shrouds

I cannot play things as they are
in the sky I hear a blue guitar

as long as I`m spared
strumming colours bending light
sing the rainbow in curved air
the orchestra of birds
takes flight

bells in the rain
a note for joy key for pain
songs beyond sane

I cannot play things as they are
in the sky I hear a blue guitar
in the sky I hear a blue guitar

Excellent work here, reminds me of some early Pink Floyd style.

Cool write, very good vocal (love it when you bring the harmonies in), and I like that melodic line that Scott is playing throughout and the guitar work overall. Production and mix sounded good to me.

Collaboration at its best, enjoyed the listen!

Robert,

Cool song. A good production. Good vocal - one of your best, I think...

Scott - some of your best work. Really "fits the song" and adds to it...

Another good collaboration for the two of you.

Robert / Scott,

This is a great collaboration... Love the song, vocal and production.

Some really nice vocal phrasing Robert.

Scott those P90's sound awesome.

Excellent all around!

Robert & Scott,
Beautiful and unusual collaboration.
Great production job. I do not have critical opinions, I enjoyed this much!
I did try to listen carefully. One small guitar spike at around 3:12. But that is just a hair. Overall is great.
Thank you for sharing!

Misha.

Fantastic progression with some hazy ethnic feel. Lyric, vocal and lead continued and joined it. A very different and enjoyable package.

Thanks for your comments, Dave. It seemed to work to hold the harmonies until the bridge. Yes, Scott has some intuition about how to play behind vocals... I`m sure he appreciates that coming from you!

Fascinating composition & production...
Undoubtedly one of the more unique works on the showcase...
The vocals, background, & guitar all blend into a mysterious musical painting...
Good collaboration guys...
I really enjoyed the listen!

Thanks Dave. I isolated Roberts vocal in the head phones and just played along to the melody in Roberts vocal. Glad you liked the song

Tangmo,
Glad you like that minor/major & back again progression.
Lately I`ve been trying to fine tune a habitual way of writing chord progressions:starting with those I hear when playing behind the melody in my head(for many years that was done & dusted!),I then jot down alternatives using Biab to quickly listen to the changes.Lastly I`ll refer to a chord map to see if what I hear isn`t supposed to work...if I start with the chart things get too predictable for my taste.

Really interesting piece - unpredictable. Really enjoyed the way it moved around and the overall prog rock production. Excellent vocal and guitar work.
A top notch collaboration.

Interesting backstory.


Quote:

I assume the off-kilter feel of the beat was intentional. It has a sort of "twitchy" feeling to it. Given the lyrics, it seems to be what you were going for.

As for the mix - sounds great to me.

You've really got a way to putting a unique spin on a song, even if it's a collaboration. I was going to suggest that you really don't sound like anyone else, when my son walked by and asked "Is that a new Talking Heads song?" jokingly, but now I can't un-hear it in your vocals. wink

But ignoring that, you really do have a unique sound.

Cool song, both of you! smile

REALLY cool.
I think the conga intro, (just the uptake hits), is a bit weak and could be either lifted, removed or varied to make is sit better.
The drum kit is too loud for my hearing of the song - it dominates after it enters - particularly the kick & toms - the conga get lost and they are VERY cool.
Excellent collab.

Robert, we love your work and the backstories always add so much.

"I cannot play things as they are
in the sky I hear a blue guitar"

That adds just the right amount of dots for the listener to connect. Cool.

Several mentioned the progression and we'll join in on how effective it is in setting the mood. Very nice.

Your vocals add so much to the already mystical tapestry. The harmony really adds to the build.

And as floyd said about Scott's contribution: "Really "fits the song" and adds to it." YES! It's way beyond just throwing in some licks no matter how well executed. His part so well complements the vocal and overall arrangement.

Re the mix we feel everything works. All is good there on the monitors. Excellent soundstage.

Great collab and use of BiaB.

than prog rock, but will take your thumbs up!

David,
I don`t know about the Talking Heads reference, but appreciate your thumbs up on the mix and our sound. Thanks for noticing our difference!

RayC,
I had made a note about that conga entry - agree it should come up or disappear.
To my ears the song lags without a drum kit as well as the congas, but your comments on the balance are useful and will get a revisit at some point.

Joe,
Thanks for your listen and comments.

Kenny,
We appreciate your positive take on our collaboration!

Robert

Strange; I thought I had borrowed that line from Wallace Stevens ( its a long poem I read once), but it seems its mine... I`m quite pleased about that!

Its a treat working with Scott - to find a guitarist who "gets" your songs is darn cool for a writer who never got past strummming!

I tweaked the mix to bring out the congas - it seems a bit more magical to my ears now.

Nicely done! This might be one of my favourites from you. Wonderfully catchy with vibrant instrumentation, and your vocals soar on this. It flows gorgeously, and the guitar interlude pull it all together for me.

Wouldn't change a thing - thanks for sharing smile

Wouldn't change a thing - thanks for sharing smile


Thank you, Deryk.
I think you heard the adjusted the percussion mix.Keeps the congas from getting lost. Scott`s solo really suits the change too.

Robert and Scott,

You've done it again! Your collaborations just keep on gleaming more and more with each one that's posted. This one shines!

The write, arrangement and production are great. Robert your vocals are really confident these days and Scott, you make skilful guitar playing sound so very easy.

Very, very effective work (again)!

Noel

Fixed: Dragging a file into the tracks window didn't always result in the effects slot for the track being setup properly for the file type dragged in.

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit for macOS Catalina

With Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit for Mac we added Drum Notation Support, and we didn't stop there! Other Notation Enhancements added in this new version are:

-A new track type (Drums) is 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 it.
-Holding down the control key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
-In the Notation Window Options dialog, the clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
-Notation is much clearer, not jagged, on retina screens.
-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 is a keystroke entry mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, M to enter a third note, up/down cursor to change the pitch of the highlighted note, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
-You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
