Hey Ya'll ...

What a wonderful song and delivery. This is just so good in every possible way. The three of you are among the very best on the forum. We miss Tom a bunch. But you two (Janice & Bud) keep us entertained and musically satisfied on a regular basis. What's left to say about Janice's exquisite vocals? She has a God-given talent with little equal. And Bud, You're a pretty dang good knob twister who rates right there with the best. I realize Tom did a fabulous job putting this one together, but thought I'd give you a few well-earned props, too.

And who wouldn't want to collaborate with Tom Adams? That's like double icing on a fantastic cake!

This was such a delight. I was having a pretty crappy night; but this just put a U-turn on that. Thanks!

Wishing all three of you the very best. Be safe ...

Alan

Hi Janice, Bud & Tom,

you already know it: I don't know much (to say the least) about Bluegrass, so I can't compare it to other songs and/or singers, but I think I can nevertheless judge, if a song is good... And I think that this one is dang good.

First of all: I can hardly imagine a song that wouldn't become something very special if Janice sings it. Janice, you know that Maha and I simply adore your singing. And since this song, composition as well as, of course, the lyrics, and the arrangement are so good there was nothing that could have prevented you from making it something especially tasteful and appealing.

I really enjoyed the listen a lot.

All the best to all of you,

Stefan

Excellent write from Tom, and of course, top notch vocals from Janice! Especially like the harmonies.

Sounds totally pro to me, well done smile

Hi Janice, Bud and Tom,

I always thought Bluegrass had a much higher tempo. When listening to the realtracks in my search for ideas, those fiddles always play the hell out their strings. Now I learned it can be playes more slower. And yours is great!
Do I have to mention those beautiful vocals again? Or the performance of this song? Or the melody?
I don't think so. It's always perfect! This song is no exeption. And I already told you about the high risk you have of becoming too vain.
But I must admit, you earned all the compliments and become a bit vain (if you want..).
The fiddle/violin did a good job, but surprisingly you had a mandolin in your song as well. I liked that very much, but is that 'allowed' playing Bluegrass?
Let's hope we are close to 'After the storm' now.

Stay save,
Hans

Lovely melody which is very singable (or humm-able), an absolutely gorgeous vocal, and a lovely harmony.

Great job by Tom on the production and arrangement - totally professional sound, very together, sounds like a top quality band playing.

Very nice indeed.

Peter

(Bud, Janice is nicely recorded!)


Thanks Peter. Tom and Janice have done some fine cowrites over the years. He’s a pleasure to with. Glad you like the vocal recording smile

Such a cool song. Boy are the vocals and harmonies good on this. The mandolin and fiddle were excellent.

Love bluegrass as you know so this one if right up my alley. Was expecting Tom to sing on it too so that was a bit of a surprise. Sounds wonderful. Pretty song. I like it a lot.

Janice / Tom / Bud,

This is an excellent write and a lovely production overall. Love the slide in Janice's vocal - it fits so well with the fiddle.

Tremendous!

How true. How quickly things can change. And sometimes it's not even your fault but it is still your responsibility.



That is well stated and so true Joanne. Thanks for listening and offering the kind comments.

Tom, Janice, Bud...

As. Good. As. It. Gets.

From absolutely every angle.

The production and the mix are gorgeous. Pro level in all regards.

Needless to say (say it anyway), the vocal is PERFECT. Harmonies, too.

This is a superior Bluegrass write. I'm not sure I've ever heard a Bluegrass song that I liked better.

I don't know who the current biggest selling Bluegrass artist is, but this needs to be pitched to them. It should be a classic of the genre. (And they would be hard-pressed to do it any better than this.)

Stunning.

Ear Training Games in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows

October 1, 2021 is National Kids Music Day!

Music Replay is just what it sounds like - the program plays a 1-bar melody, and the user plays it back.

If you like a classic arcade game, then you'll love Pitch Invasion! We've managed to incorporate aliens with pitch-recognition skills in this exciting game, where you'll match the pitch of the alien ship descending towards your planet trying to destroy your collection of instruments - match the pitch and you've saved your instruments, make a mistake and the ship keeps coming... you'll have a few tries to get it right, if you're quick, but if all your instruments are destroyed - it's game over! The game speeds up as your skills improve, and you'll earn points along the way, with bonus points available throughout the game.

Open up your Band-in-a-Box® for Windows today to give it a try!

These ear training games are also included in Musical Arcade for Windows.
