Really liked your choice and use of the BIAB components to get a sound that really moves and has energy. I enjoyed the entire track!

One element of feedback...the lead-in vocal wasn't as clear as it could be--I'd review that and perhaps take some of the effect off of it.

Gary,

Those BIAB Bluegrass Realtracks are always a good choice. Good choices.
The vocal could come up just slightly.

I agree , it is a mess. I was using FX to hide the fact that I can't sing LOL.

BTW Looking at your picture , we could be twins smile

Hi Gary,

It's nice to hear something different once in a while. From what I've heard, there aren't too many songs here in the Bluegrass style. You've created a good one.
Thanks for posting it.

I agree. An excellent song but the vocals need to be a tad louder.

Super excellent use of those Bluegrass RTs!


I just posted a selfie and all of the responses were get well soon!

Thank you for your kind words Mario.
I have no confidence in my vocal ability hence I tend to bury them in the mix.
BTW I love your modus operandi of edgy music creation which is inspirational. Also I can relate to your amusing marriage observation ,very funny smile

Nice to hear some bluegrass (we played in traditional bluegrass bands for many, many years until drifting into Americana).

You made good use of the rhythm and solo versions of each instrument.

BTW, It’s fun with those bluegrass RT's is to mix them like a live BG band would sound working a couple of mics.

So welcome aboard and keep 'em coming!

Hi Gary
Good work putting this together, much enjoyed.
Nice to hear a bit of Aussie bluegrass. Reminded me a bit of the Rank Strangers, one of my favourite Australian bluegrass bands, active late 1980s/early 1990s. Worth checking out if you've not heard them (if you search 'Uluru by Gary Forrester and the Rank Strangers you'll come up with one of their best).
Regards,
Leon

Good song, sung well enough to raise the volume some. Nice work all the way around.

The Band-in-a-Box® Flash Drive Backup Option

Today (April 5) is National Flash Drive Day!

Did you know... not only can you download your Band-in-a-Box® Pro, MegaPAK, or PlusPAK purchase - you can also choose to add a flash drive backup copy with the installation files for only $15? It even comes with a Band-in-a-Box® keychain!

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? If your flash drive (or other USB plug) doesn't have a symbol to indicate which way is up, look for the side with a seam on the metal connector (it only has a line across one side) - that's the side that either faces down or to the left, depending on your port placement.
