Hi all. One of my latest sings.
All comments welcom. Rob4580

I'm not so sure

(I removed the pedal steel track)


Let me tell you my dilemma I been traveling through bad weather.
I'm in sixteen different kinds of pain.

My head keeps on a thumping I should have seen it coming.
But I'm doing alright just the same.

I've been feeling kinda queasy since she said she's gonna leave me.
My hairs fallen out by the comb.
My friends say not to worry that she'll back. But I'm not so sure no more hey hey.

Bridge

I've been feeling kinda queasy since she said she's gonna leave. My hairs fallen out by the comb.
My friends say not to worry that she'll back. But I'm not so sure any more. hey hey hey

This blues style features guitar, baritone guitar, bass, and drums.
The guitar plays mostly short, quick chords and occasional fills into the next chord.
The baritone guitar plays a mix of chords and riffs with particular emphasis
on the lower end of the fretboard to accentuate the guitars sound.
The bass alternates held notes with moving 8th note lines.
During the A sections the drums play a simple rock beat with
hi-hat, snare, and kick drum. During the B sections a ride cymbal is subbed
in for the hi-hat. This song is in the key of F#m and features
major, minor, and dominant7 chords. Chord changes happen every 2 to 8 beats.

Terrific lyrics and your usual excellent singing. Then I liked ending with a chorus of hey-heys for contrast lyrically. Just great!

What a cool sound, Rob. There are influences from every decade in there, but the 50s strike me the strongest. Great choice of bandmates. Cool lyrics. Yeah, ya never no if she'll be back, but one thing you CAN be sure of: You got a good song out of it. Stay well!

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

You packed a lot of goodness into those two minutes.

Very engaging from the get go. Your always fine vocal

Enjoyed it!

Rob

Enjoyed that, a nice rocker and strong vocal. (The bass was booming a bit on my speakers).

Good stuff.

Rob,
Wow! this was on my "listen to" list for some time. With so much music here, I am glad I found it. Really good stuff. A lot of energy packed in 2 minutes. Cool groove! I like short tunes. I had a period in my life when I wrote whole bunch of things of 2 minutes and under, which was a lot of fun (for me) I think I might go that route again smile Thank you for sharing.

Misha.

Nice to hear your vocal sitting in with the instruments - it fits really well.
This is a song where IN is important. As usual you sit your vocal really well for the song.
Cool.

Nice job Rob! This one sounds like you had the 60's power trio Cream backing you up! Didn't last last long enough! T

The Band-in-a-Box® VST DAW Plugin Works Great in Windows® 11!

Simon did it again - another test in Windows 11! See how well the Band-in-a-Box® VST DAW Plugin works with Windows® 11 in his latest video: The Band-in-a-Box® VST DAW Plugin Works Great in Windows® 11!

RealBand® Works Great in Windows® 11!

Here's an introductory look at RealBand® running on the preview version of Windows® 11!

Watch the video.

Customers LOVE Band-in-a-Box® 2021!

Check out some of the latest Band-in-a-Box® feedback we've received:

"There's a saying 'Give a man a fish, feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, feed him for a lifetime.' That's exactly what my friend did in 1990. He taught me how to use BIAB and I've used it hundreds of time to do arraignment and to jam with any style band."

"Love BIAB. I use it daily. Their support is great too!"

"RealTracks are amazing!!! I use BIAB for backtracks in my solo act... Still using the basic package and it's all need..."

"I have used Band in A Box for many years. If it would have been around when I was young, I would have been a much better musician. I use it for all my songs I have written and recorded. With Band In A Box I can sit in my room and sound like a whole band without having to put up with them!"

"If you know something about music and take the time to learn the program, you can make it do some amazing things. It is a great help to songwriters who want to demo their song without paying for studio time. It makes changes and tweaks much easier as well."

"Been using it for so many years. It's a great tool. The instruments that I don't have or play make up the void and it saves so much time. I use this program for every song I write."

"Great tool for the songwriter!"

"An essential part of my studio! I write songs on piano, but I'm not a pianist by a long way. BIAB is like having a roomful of session players in your studio, and just the simple act of taking your basic idea and hearing a skilled pianist play it presents so many new ideas and options you hadn't thought of."

"Powerful, easy to use, inexpensive and they even split the modest payments up if you want. No complaints. Lots of satisfaction."

"I added a steel guitar to a fully produced original. He followed every change like he was in the studio reading the chart. Fascinating technology!"

"I have used it to make backing tracks for six CD's with about 12 songs on each. They make a great gift!"

"It's simply a necessity - buy it now - the staff and support do a great job as well!"

"A great tool for us songwriters!"

"I LOVE Band-in-a-Box!"

"I see it as a very worthwhile investment. In fact, from initial purchase about 8 years ago, using the backing tracks I have made, my income from that investment has returned over 5,000% on the investment!"

continued...

Band-in-a-Box® - Boxing Clever - Sound on Sound #TBT

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® is more than 30 years old? I stumbled across this 1990 magazine article explaining the relatively new program, and think it's an enjoyable read for any Band-in-a-Box user - it really shows that we are always listening to user feedback when developing our program!

Read the article: Boxing Clever: Band-In-A-Box Software

A few of my favorite statements:

"The intention of PG Music's Band-In-A-Box package is to couple that speed and convenience with the improved flexibility of the personal computer. Versions are available for the Atari ST, Mac, and PC compatibles. Have the programmers succeeded? And can they rid themselves of the stigma of the auto-accompaniment section? Given the above state of affairs, the first hurdle that the program has to overcome is one of acceptance and, frankly, a name like 'Band-In-A-Box' is a bad start."

(I think our name was a great start!)

"The final results are, to say the least, impressive. Band-In-A-Box achieves something that most hardwired auto-accompaniment sections have never been able to do - inject a degree of feel into the music. It really does sound more human than so many of the computer generated pieces I've heard."

"...I'm quite convinced that PG Music will have a winner on their hands. This is one piece of software that you can get more out of than you put in."
