A vert old timey Dobro like tone on the intro guitar Scott. The 2nd sounds more modern.
Nice tones.
I have to admit that you sounded a little under rehearsed on a few runs - but only a few.
I'd be more comfy with a change of title - it has connotations.

Nice one, Scott!

I love the tone on both of the guitars, and the conversation they are having.

Listened twice, good stuff!

Thanks for checking out the song. Yes some of the runs were very new to me and did not flow as well as I would have liked. It will be a staple in my daily playlist so will revise it down the road a bit. Past memories pop into my heead all the time. When I was picking the key to play in I choose a G Minor. Right then I thought of a trip to Barkerville which is a 1880 mining town in the interior of British Columbia. So it was a bit of a play on words.

Thanks Dave. This H9 is a Pandora's box of effects. Some very unusual tones. Lots of exploring to do. Thanks for checking out the song.

Hi Scott,

yes, I do like it!

Very beautiful tone on the guitars, nice melodic lines - and I have the feeling I caught the mood you were in.

Bye summer, hi autumn.

Liked this a lot.

Take care,

Stefan

Scott,

Really like this one. Your guitar tone on this is prefect for the haunting melody...

Well done. A good listen...

Scott,
I like the tonal difference in guitars and moody feel...mine doesn`t usually darken `til winter arrives. Keep playing through it like this- its a good soundtrack of the inner seasons!

Hey Scott,

I don't have a vast background in musical terminology, so I'll keep it simple. The guitar work evokes a floating, mellow sensation. Very enjoyable listen.

I thought I was hearing a dobro or lap steel for the first few bars...cool fx.

Nice band and you have that snare pop going. Love it.

The melody and guitar performance are very moody in an engaging way...haunting somewhat.

As alway, well done!

You sure have a knack for drawing a lot of expression out of a few phrases. Les Paul tone hard to miss.

You could pass some of the rain down to us - nasty drought here.

Nice dreamy bluesy guitar, sounds very nice - well played throughout.

Nicely done! Some great chords, and a lovely atmospheric vibe to it. We've been getting lots of rain over on the west coast here too in B.C. and this tune fits the dreary ambiance here too. Really dreamy, and some awesome tones laced throughout.

Thanks for sharing smile


Cheers,
Deryk

Hi Scott,

I love your thoughtful, lyrical playing. The backing and your melody created a pleasurable yet mysterious feeling in my mind. It was quite magical. I'm not sure how your did that, but I was impressed!

Another fine work to add to your collection!

All the best,
Noel

Thanks Robert. Got a little distracted on this one. Started out testing the new shure mic and focusrite recording setup and next thing you know it turned into a song. Glad you liked it..

Minor Pentatonic? I don't know for sure, but this has a feel I hear quite a bit this side of the great water. Thus it feels very familiar and oddly comforting and "Asian", though it is no doubt sad and "mysterious". The spare band and high-and-lonesome tone along with your beautifully delivered licks are a wonderful package. Much enjoyed.

A very mysterious vibe and delivery. The guitar lines sound great. Awesome backing and mix.

Excellent!

For the larger Band-in-a-Box® packages (UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, Audiophile Edition), the hard drive backup copy is available for only $25. This will include a preinstalled and ready to use program, along with your installation files.

Backup copies are offered during the checkout process on our website.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first?

Band-in-a-Box® 2024 Review: 4.75 out of 5 Stars!

If you're looking for a in-depth review of the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows version, you'll definitely find it with Sound-Guy's latest review, Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows Review: Incredible new capabilities to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs.

A few excerpts:
"The Tracks view is possibly the single most powerful addition in 2024 and opens up a new way to edit and generate accompaniments. Combined with the new MultiPicker Library Window, it makes BIAB nearly perfect as an 'intelligent' composer/arranger program."

"MIDI SuperTracks partial generation showing six variations – each time the section is generated it can be instantly auditioned, re-generated or backed out to a previous generation – and you can do this with any track type. This is MAJOR! This takes musical experimentation and honing an arrangement to a new level, and faster than ever."

"Band in a Box continues to be an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs, as well as an extensive educational resource. It is huge, with hundreds of functions, more than any one person is likely to ever use. Yet, so is any DAW that I have used. BIAB can do some things that no DAW does, and this year BIAB has more DAW-like functions than ever."
