Very cool Dave Boy the song takes me back to the 70’s. Your guitar work was just excellent. Chris’s vocal was so good. The piano was nice touch. Well done

The band works, I especially like that right-panned rhythm guitar, gives the song even more edge.

Always nice to be mentioned in the same sentence as Gary Moore! Thanks very much, Janne, I appreciate it!

Wow, Dave. Here's To You actually!

The lead guitar work sits perfectly, and enhances to production with great dynamics.

Vocals are world class.

This is absolutely sensational in every respect.

Here's to you!

Hey Steve, thanks, man!

Yeah, that VSTi is great, lots of potential. Price was right too! Although for sure I’ll buy at least one of their other offerings, which is why these companies give stuff away I guess, good marketing strategy.

About time you uploaded a new song I think, it’s been a while!

Yeah, that first one I had was the Joanne challenge for "Paradox of You" in January 2018. I am actually working on a 2nd song now and hope to have it done in a few months. 1 song every 2 years? Sounds like me.... I'm still younger and not quite retired. I use the "I work too much" excuse for not getting songs done! smile

Thanks for asking!

Man Dave and Wow Chris, this may be my new favorite of your excellent catalogue. Stellar sound, great vocal and write, excellent guitar work. This hit the high water mark on all aspects. Very pro and definitely in my wheelhouse. I have always loved minor blues. A superb listen, Tom

Some stellar playing (great tone) and interesting production touches.

All the elements of the song work and it was a great listen.

Super smooth! Man that kick drum really thumps! The vocals and harmonies are superb! And I could have listened to the lead guitar for another ten minutes!


Well Done!

Hi Dave & Chris,

this is really great stuff, wow.

A very good write, perfectly arranged and what you can do as a team is amazing: Fantastic vocals (remind me a bit (but just a bit!) on the early Christine Perfect (later Christine McVie)and when the intro started I thought: 'Yeah, finally someone remembers the Zombies.

Chris, you sure know how to express yurself in a Blues song (and write one, too) and Dave - you know that I really love your stylish playing. And for someone who never got the tone out of his guitars that really satisfied him (me, unfortunately) I'm always stunned by yours.

Simply marvellous!

Cheers,

Stefan

Excellent stuff.


Hi Ray,

I'll revisit that guitar if we ever decide to do more with this song, easy enough to dial back the distortion a bit.

Thanks for the listen and comments!

But never the less, I really like this song, the sologuitar and -of course- the singing of Chris. Very well done!

Hi Hans,

Sorry the end disappointed you, but happy you liked the rest of it!

SongPicker Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac!

The Band-in-a-Box® SongPicker has been enhanced with our newest 2020 version!

The SongPicker now builds faster for large song lists (>30K and up to 60,000 songs). The [Song] button (or the [Open] button) now has 3 additional menu items to launch the SongPicker.

- Open SongPicker in Current Folder: This opens the SongPicker in the current folder of the last loaded song.
- Open SongPicker in Home Folder: This opens the SongPicker in the home folder, which is Applications/Band-in-a-Box/MySongs or as set in the SongPicker.
- Open SongPicker in Favorite Folder: This launches the Favorite Folder dialog which allows you to choose any previously used folder where a song was loaded from, and then open the SongPicker in that folder.

In the SongPicker, there is a new “Open in Home” option. If this is enabled, the SongPicker will always open in the home folder instead of the current folder when you press the default [Song] button to open the SongPicker.

Searching for songs matching a chord progression or melody has been enhanced. There are three new checkboxes: "Key must match exactly," "Chord Extension must match exactly", and "Time Signature must match."

Click here to jump to the SongPicker subject in our New Features video to learn more. (32:11)

(read more about this feature in our Band-in-a-Box 2020 for Mac Online Upgrade Manual.)

New "Feature Browser" in Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac

Band-in-a-Box® has so many features! We add 50 new ones with every version, so you may have forgotten all the different things that Band-in-a-Box® can do. Fortunately, with the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2020 we've solved this issue by added a Feature Browser!

How does it work? Access this feature by clicking on the [?] button on the main screen of the program or pressing the / Enter keys on the Chord Sheet. This dialog lists many features of the program and allows you to browse them, find the feature by text filter, read descriptions about the feature, find how to launch the feature, access to the online information or video about the feature, and do more.

Examples of a few situations where this feature is helpful:

-You know about a feature but don't know how to find it. Just type a part of the feature name and you'll see the hotkeys, menu, and toolbar info on how to launch it. For example, if you want to launch the Chord Builder but don’t know how to do it, type "builder" in the text filter, and you will quickly find the Chord Builder.
-You are exploring available features for Band-in-a-Box. For example, if you are a guitar player, type the word "guitar" and you'll see what's available.
-You prefer "one-stop-shopping" and would like to launch features from the same dialog.
-You are learning the program and like to browse or watch videos about topics you're interested in.
You can't remember hotkeys and want to review them.

Watch this new feature in action when you jump to the subject in our New Features video: 10:20 - New Feature - Feature Browser
