Here's my latest blues song from my album "Alone And Blue"

Drums - BIAB BassaBrushes #1
Bass - BIAB 33 Acoustic String Bass
Rhythm Guitar - Captain Moto
Lead Guitar - Captain Moto
Vocals - Captain Moto

Mixed in Studio One

https://soundcloud.com/captainmoto/feel-no-rain-1

Lyrics:

I'm standing in a storm, I feel no rain
I'm blind to the lightning, No thunder in my veins
Drained my emotions, everything'd the same
Lost my senses when you said you wouldn't stay

Trapped in a fire, I have no pain
I could be eat'n by the searing blaze
Trapped by the embers, burned by the flames
Lost my senses when you wouldn't stay...Oh no no no

Guitar solo

When the flood comes, to carry me away
I won't try swimm'm, I'll be roll'n in he waves
With the torrent raging, I'll be your castaway....oh yea
Lost my senses when you you couldn't stay...Oh no

moto,

A good listen.
A little Santana-ish mixed with a little Neil Young-ish.
A cool sound.

This is reminiscent of the doors.
Good vocals and guitar work.

Santana & Neal Young.........that's a good one.

I can relate to the Santana vibe, but never connected to Neil Young.
Funny though, I received another comparison to N Y, weird, thanks for listening and your comments.

Captain,
Cool vintage groove. Jim jamming with Carlos? smile
Strong vocal drive and arrangement. Got proper dusty feel to it. If you care, I think the only weakest spot to my ears are drums. They sound a bit midi'ish. Enjoyed it! Thank you for sharing.

Thanks Misha,
I'll be filing an official complaint with PG Music to get their drums fixed.

Just kidding, thanks for the feedback.

Moto,

Great song here man. I agree with Floyd, I hear a little Santana in here.

Great mix and sound.

The rhythm guitar reminds me of Normie Rowe and the Playboys version of It Ain't Necessarily So from 65 though it could point to someone catching a lift on a tempest in 71.
Regardless of similarities it's a cracking tune.
Well done.

Very nice, Captain. I see comparisons are being made. I'm also hearing a hint of the Doors.

CaptainMoto,

This has a Santana vibe to it, with a Neil Youngish vocal—to me at least. Like the write a lot and the production is very solid. I’m wondering whether the lead guitar needs to come more forward on the solo—see what others think . . . it may be fine just as is. Nicely done!

All my best,

Deej

P.S. I always try to write my comments before looking at others and scroll down afterwards. Just saw Floyd’s comments come up first—Santana & Young!

Hi Cap,

listened to this before I had read the other comments, and the first thing I thought was: Santana feel, Ventures guitar sound and Jim Morrison is singing. Most of all the latter is amazing - ever considered you might be the one every Doors tribute band has always been looking for?

Seriously, a truely great tune, LOVE your vocal and the production sounds excellent.

Really very well-done, yessiree, Cap.

Stay well and take care

Stefan

You’ve got a great overall sound here. Kinda a spookiness to it. The vocal is really well done. Good mix too. I enjoyed it a lot,Tom

Wow!
Pretty glowing review.........THANK YOU!
I get the Santana vibe but, me sounding like Morisson, that's a new one.
Glad you enjoyed it.

A really, really excellent track. I've heard Santana play, I've never heard Neil Young sing - so I can't help with those comparisons ... but it sounds unique to my ears, a unique combination of sounds - so well put together. It works so well - bravo!

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."
