Robert alluded to it...the lyric is ethereal yet the vocal is so organic and, yes, it does make for a great and effective contrast.

If CD's were still popular we'd say you are working on a boxed set. And ALL of them are so good.

You ain't one for filler!

Great band here as always and we agree with floyd on the held chords. Perfect glue.

And the vocal delivers and delivers.

Wonderful listen(s)

I like the production - a bunch. LOVE the way you used the held electric chords...

Terrific listen.

I agree completely with Floyd. I really like the way you put so much feeling in each and every song.

This is a winner.

Bob,

You consistently put out some very engaging songs—all of which just hang together and accentuate each other. There’s a killer album in the offing . . . if that’s the direction you are going. This tune, as do your others, creates such a compelling atmosphere—lot of emotion here, and your vocal sells it. Great stuff!

All the best,

Deej

Really well done! It flows tremendously well, and I liked how the lyrics really tell a story here. That, paired with your voice on this makes it a very grabbing listen for me. Perfectly catchy on the hook too - the chorus was a standout to me.

Nice work and thanks for sharing smile

Really liked the vocal delivery and the acoustic guitar. Lyrics had me wondering which, I think, is a good thing in songwriting.

Very nice write! Strong and airy. Nicely mixed and listens easy. Different from last several tunes, but in a very good way.

Built-in Audio Chord Wizard Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2020!

Our Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Windows version includes some great enhancements to the Built-in Audio Chord Wizard!

-The built-in Audio Chord Wizard is now accessible from the [Audio Chord Wizard] button.
-The Audio Edit window now displays chords and tempos for each bar. They are shown when the Audio Chord Wizard mode is active so that you can see the tempo for each bar as you set the bar lines.
-When you start entering bar lines, the program automatically sets the tempo to the tempo of the first bar.
-Once the tempo of the first bar is set, the program automatically moves the location of the first bar of audio over so that the visual space of the count-in bars is visible.
-After you’ve added the bar lines, IF you adjust the first or second bar and the tempo of the first bar changes accordingly, the program automatically changes the tempo of the song to match.
-Multi-window display. This gives the Audio Chord Wizard a multi-window view so that you can see and edit both the Audio Edit window and the Chords Sheet at the same time. This display is best viewed with a small toolbar mode. This allows you to see the chords as they are being interpreted by the wizard.
-The Audio Chord Wizard can send the transcribed MIDI notes to the Soloist track for further analysis by the user (via Piano Roll or Notation window). Note that this is a "snapshot" view every 8th note of the pitches present, not an attempt at polyphonic transcription. To use this feature, enable the "MIDI to Soloist" check box.

Read more about these enhancements here, or jump to the New Feature - Audio Chord Wizard (ACW) Enhancements section of our New Features video here.

New Left-Handed & Student View Guitar Window in Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Windows!

With Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Windows, the Guitar window has been remade and now supports the left-handed (in addition to right-handed) guitar and student view!

The student view is the view a student (or YouTube video watcher) would have of the (right-handed) guitar facing him with the head at the right and low notes at the top. There's also a left-handed student view, so all 4 possible views are supported.

To change the view, press the [Guitar] toolbar button to open the Guitar window and then the [Settings] button.
