Hi All,

This is something new called Moonshot.

Miles between us
On the coast or outer space
Flying tonight
Every route feels untrue
I kinda wish this tired old moonshot was you

Lines round my eyes
The years above the radar
Flying away
Will somehow have to do
I kinda wish this tired old moonshot was you

I kinda wish this tired old moonshot was true
I kinda wish this tired old moonshot was you

Catch an updraft
Watch the clouds fade away
Flying this way
Navigate without a crew
I kinda wish this tired old moonshot was you

I kinda wish this tired old moonshot was true
I kinda wish this tired old moonshot was you

All BIAB Tracks:
2474: Bass, Acoustic, Held Ev 085
2505: Piano, Electric, HeldChords 085
2914: Guitar, Acoustic, Fingerpicking Folky16thsBrent Ev16 085
832: Guitar, Electric, Rhythm, AltCountryMoody Ev 075
RealDrums: PopPromiseEv16 a:Snare on 4, HiHat, b: Snare

As always - thanks for listening!

Bob

This is great and very current in todays style of music, finger picking guitar and vocals sit really well together and made me wonder if you needed the heavier guitar at all ?.

Great mix and great sound.

Thanks

Man, so prolific! I have no idea how you do it.

Great stuff as usual, Bob!

Lot's of passion in your vocal when you are singing the "I kinda wish this tired old moonshot was true" line.

Bob,

As cool as only another terrific Bob Dean song can be. This one has a nice spacey feel ( the signature guitar) but your voice is passionate and earthy- such a good contrast. One of your best vocals, I think.
An excellent big sound you make with the simple band.

Robert

Nice song - I like the instrumentation and it's got a memorable chorus. And it's got your distinctive sound. smile

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Ah, the wonders of regional pronunciation and meanings.
The word "route" is said "root" in Oz and "route" as you said it means utter defeat in battle or to cut a groove in wood.
Due to this difference my tired old brain shot wandered into permutations and I had to come back to the song again.
Perplexing imagery in some parts but that's excellent - something to gnaw and wonder at.
VERY enjoyable.

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.
