Nice laid back rock ballad. Usage of strings is excellent. I like your vocal chain FX or the things you used on it. Got this early Pink Floyd vocal tone to it. This is an nice addition to your heavier tunes! Enjoyed my listen.

Thank you for sharing!

Misha.


Misha,

Thank you for your listen and kind words, the strings are an electric piano.

Just an outstanding song, one of your best IMHO.

Is that you playing guitar on the soundcloud pic?



Hey Dave,

thanks,

that's me and a bandmate around 1980 or 81

Nice work. The chorus rise from the verse is climactic. Another great set of lyrics.

A classic Kenny tune! Really soul felt with a beautiful chorus! Loved the electric piano! I liked the fact that you left the breath sounds in between the lines, it really adds to the emotional vibe to the tune! Nice work Kenny!! Thanks, Torrey

WOW, Kenny!

Everything that should be said has ready been said, as far as I can tell. I'll pile on to all those accolades. If awards were given for cutting edge emotion, this would be an easy winner. Your vocal delivery is all a listener could hope for. And the band ... well, they got their stuff together and soared. Simply astounding. This is eloquent as only you could do it.

Alan

Kenny, I loved the rawness of this song. Not many singers/writers can carry this kind of raw emotion off as well as you do with the subtle builds and valleys moving the listeners heart right along with you.

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows was released in December 2018, and included many new features and enhancements - like the enhancements we made to our Notation window!

These include:
-Pressing the space bar plays the song from the current location.
-Double-clicking on the Standard mode Notation window (or on the time line in Editable or Staff Roll mode) plays the song from the current time location.
-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.
-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.
-In the Notation Windows Options dialog, the clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
-The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
-You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
-A new track type (Drums) is available for the Melody and Soloist tracks.
-Holding down the Ctrl key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
-There's a keystroke entry mode -the "N" mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, up/down cursor to change its pitch, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
-A new button in the Print Options dialog lets you quickly print a "chords only" fake sheet. You can also access this from the right-click menu on the Chord Sheet.
-You can now edit any track in the Event List Editor. When the dialog opens, it will show you the MIDI data in the current notation track.


There's detailed information on our 2019 notation enhancements here: Band-in-a-Box® 2019 New Feature - Notation Enhancements

My Favorite Things - Nudge Chords in Band-in-a-Box®

Love this time saving feature.

Ever fill in the chordsheet fully or for part of song, and then discover you want to add or take away an extra beat or more somewhere in the chordsheet.

Nudge chords (melody) from the Edit Menu is your friend here, the dialog will give you all the options either to remove or add beats where its needed.

Love it.
