This song had some really lovely lyrics, and I enjoyed the overall arrangement! Wonderful job.

I was quite disappointed in the number of blues, because one man can use very many blues. You and the band worked and played well together. That's entertainment.

Thanks again, rayc. You are a HUGE help. All of that sibilence is a major detraction; everything sounds better when it's cleaned up. I've done a few re-mixes already with the info you've given me, and now I'll look at Noel's.

Thanks, Tangmo. You're right about the number, so this may only be How Many Blues Pt. 1.

"Black Magic Woman, Give Me Back My Wig.
How Many More Years will you be Messin' With The Kid?"

Wow!

Great concept for the write!
Interestingly, our next post (a PD blues)
mentions song names in the lyric. But
it ain't upbeat like this on smile

As you likely know we live in the blues
wheelhouse. And that puts us in
good shape to really appreciate this.

As mentioned cool write along with
a fine vocal and bass performance
and backed with a good band and mix.

Enjoyed it!

Hi Marty,

Another strong Bluessong from you!
I don't know how many you made by now, mut is must be many blues!
I liked that leadguitar a lot. And not to mention your vocals. It immediatly makes my feet tapping. Only the cats got annoyed, but who bothers with this music you make!

#TBT The Band-in-a-Box® 2010 "Plug-in" Mode!

Did you know... the "Plug-in" mode was first launched with the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2010 for Windows!

With the 2010 "Plug-in" mode, Band-in-a-Box® opened as a small always-on-top window, and acted as a plug-in for your favorite DAW/sequencer, so that you could Drag-and-drop MIDI and audio (WAV) tracks from Band-in-a-Box to your favorite sequencer. You could work in your favorite sequencer, type a progression in Band-in-a-Box, and then simply drag the track from Band-in-a-Box to your sequencer’s track at the desired track and bar location.

To learn more about the new features that were launched with Band-in-a-Box® 2010 for Windows, check out Band-in-a-Box® 2010 "Plug-in" mode feature highlighted in our Band-in-a-Box® 2010 New Features Video at 10:50!

The "Plug-in" mode development didn't stop there - With Band-in-a-Box® 2019 we introduced the "Band-in-a-Box® VST DAW Plugin" which now works DIRECTLY INSIDE YOUR DAW (Cakewalk, Reaper, Pro Tools, PreSonus, etc.). Learn more about this feature here.

From there, simply type in your query, or choose from the long list that appears in the Feature Browser window.
