Using BIAB as bass, drums, rythm guitars. Using my guitars on stereo, a little different sound here. Enjoy Cliff

When it started, I was thinking it was a rather sparse instrumental.

And then it got to the chorus. laugh

I enjoyed the ride!

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Cool intro. Love how you have panned the guitars. I too thought maybe an instrumental. Excellent vocal and harmonies

(Not sure about those last little synth chords--do you really need those? I don't think so!)

Nice groove, surprising synthesized backing but it works just like Z.Z.Top did in the 80's. Catchy melody and I really enjoyed the guitars and vocal harmonies. The lyrical content fits the context smile

I had a very pleasurable ride listening to this!

I really like your stereo image here, brilliant! The mix is perfect. Excellent guitar chops also.


Me, it's not about how many times you fail, it's about how many times you get back up.
Cop, that's not how field sobriety tests work.

That was different for you, but still cool. Sounded like an alternate take of a track on a CD or album. Nice work.

Thanks David, yes, it was slow to get to vocals, that could be a weak point. CLiff

Ha Thank You for enjoying the Ride Tano, and YES, the genius of the ending is so reminiscent of Abbey road days, I think the boys and George would have been happy with it. HAHA, who knows you could be right , certainly I could have left the synth off. Cliff

Thank You Janne, it was going to be a different rythm more rock oriented , I had plans of a much different guitar style and had it practiced, but, BIAB gave me a completely different take on the style and the song. I just cant say enough good things about this program. AMAZING!!!! Cliff

Hi Clifond,

Yes I too expected it was an instrumental until the singing started.
It's a nice song with a very nice strumming guitar in a good groove.
I read Ray was fond of the panning, I'm not so much. It works a bit distracting in my head.
Especially the strong panning left and right of the vocals. It makes them stay out of the mix. Bringing them more together could cause wonders (?), at least try it one time.
But as long as you have fun, don't mind my words.

Yeah, I was enjoying the "instrumental" and wished I didn't read some of the other comments as the song started. The sense of surprise was lost. But then this comment by Tanno Music "I don't wanna analyze, I just wanna sit back and enjoy the vibe..nice!!" made more sense. Ok enough talk. Back for another ride.


Enjoy whatever happens!

HA , Thanks Marty yes indeed enjoy the ride, it was the same with me when recording it, it was all a spur of the moment thing, nothing I had planned happened. I think this the equivalent of 0 and 1 for computer programing, the lyrics break down the feeling of the song from Dylan's 50 verse songs to a 7-11 song style. 7 words 11 times over HA. Cliff

I thought it was an instrumental until it wasn't.

Then I remembered that Waylon used that technique a lot, especially in his live shows ( not on TV ) play a verse and a chorus then start the vocals..... it stretches the song for a live show... that equates to having to learn or play fewer songs.... like the time our band was hired to play a 4 hr gig after we won a battle of the bands talent show. We were brand new, and while we were good..... we only had 7 songs on our set list at the time. Yeah that made for an interesting night.

Back to your song.... organic and off the cuff comes to mind. I like the feel on the song

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.

Already purchased your e-delivery version, and now you wish you had a backup copy? It's not too late! If your purchase was for the current version of Band-in-a-Box®, you can still reach out to our team directly to place your backup copy order!

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.

Band-in-a-Box® 2024 Review: 4.75 out of 5 Stars!

If you're looking for a in-depth review of the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows version, you'll definitely find it with Sound-Guy's latest review, Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows Review: Incredible new capabilities to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs.

A few excerpts:
"The Tracks view is possibly the single most powerful addition in 2024 and opens up a new way to edit and generate accompaniments. Combined with the new MultiPicker Library Window, it makes BIAB nearly perfect as an 'intelligent' composer/arranger program."

"MIDI SuperTracks partial generation showing six variations – each time the section is generated it can be instantly auditioned, re-generated or backed out to a previous generation – and you can do this with any track type. This is MAJOR! This takes musical experimentation and honing an arrangement to a new level, and faster than ever."

"Band in a Box continues to be an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs, as well as an extensive educational resource. It is huge, with hundreds of functions, more than any one person is likely to ever use. Yet, so is any DAW that I have used. BIAB can do some things that no DAW does, and this year BIAB has more DAW-like functions than ever."
