A shelter-in-place-inspired song.
https://soundcloud.com/rtk-iv/homebound

The lead guitar, right-side acoustic and vox are me. The rest, realtracks: Realbass700, Drums - Nashville Even 8, Keys - Synth 2364, Realguitars 367 and 368 and Cello - 3269

Homebound
c. 2020 JJW

I sit and watch the raindrops fall, waiting for someone to call
Clock ticking, a haunting sound
Homebound

Every day is a Sunday, like a never ending play
Specters in a ghost town
Homebound

Come if you want to, don't feel you have to
There’s nothing here to do, you’re not around
Things have changed, I get it
Let’s start again, let’s face it
We can try just a little bit, don't stand your ground

There’s only so much of me I can take
Just me and this house and the heartache
Another morning, alone I wake
I’m homebound
Count the cracks on the ceiling,
The wallpaper is peeling
It’s emptiness that I’m feeling
Homebound

Wish there was more that I could say
Would it matter anyway?
If I begged you some, would that be OK?
I’m upside down
Please come home, I need you now
Just one more chance if you’d allow
Wouldn't it be nice if we both could be
Homebound

The lead guitar in this is fantastic and fits in really well with the RealTracks. I loved the clever lyrics in this too, some great lines in it. Although I can't quite relate fully to all of them since I share my house with my 6 year old son, who doesn't give me any time at all to get sick of my own company!!!

Really enjoyed listening to this, thanks for sharing.

"everyday`s a Sunday"-that`s how I described my walks to my wife the other day!
I enjoyed the relaxed feel ( the electro flute fits that nicely) and your plaintive vocal.
The lead guitar is icing.
Well done.

Robert

I liked everything about this. Of course, I hear flutes like that and I think Strawberry Fields. But this had its own thing going on. Nice work!

I can't fully relate either! I'm home with the wife, adult daughter and two dogs. Lyrics are just a flight of fancy. Thanks for the listen.

#TBT Band-in-a-Box Finds!

I don't know about everyone here, but now that I've settled in to our "new normal" I've taken to rearranging and dusting off many things in order to keep busy and productive!

I'm picking up old hobbies, picking up clutter around the house, and as it turns out - finding forgotten picks!

We snagged these gems many, many, many years ago after The NAMM Show one winter. Check out the old Band-in-a-Box logo! Click here...

#TipTuesday - Style Changes in Band-in-a-Box®

Head to our Tips & Tricks forum to read what other Band-in-a-Box users have discovered about the program!

Like mrgeeze's recent post Style Changes within a song.. another great BIAB feature.

...My arrangement's bass Real Track was 397 (bass Acoustic Paul).
Solid but not really what I wanted for a solo.

I hit the F5 key to bring up bar setting and poked around till i found the Real Tracks command button in the upper right.
Clicked on that & quickly change the bass to 452 (Soloist (bluesy).
12 bars later I did the same and switched it back to 397.

The results were excellent...
