Aint been around for a while.

Had a computer melt down that ultimately led to building my own computer.
Taken me quite a while to get things up and running again.

My first few new songs are very simple arraignments with just me on guitar and vocals.

Here's one called " Those Lies"

https://soundcloud.com/captainmoto/those-lies

Thanks for listening and commenting.

Lyrics:

She's got lightning burning in her eyes
And there's thunder every time she cries
And I brought this storm upon us when I told her those lies

Oh the dark cloud cover wipes the sunshine from the sky
And the cold wind blow'n passing thru me like a knife
And I brought this storm upon us when I told her those lies

I try to tell her everything aint black and white
And she cried and it echoed thru the night
And I brought this storm upon us when I told her those lies

Fury of emotion carries thru to daylight
The restless rage is rolling with no end in sight
And I brought this storm upon us when I told her those lies

Hi Moto,

Dig this tune, so intimate with the sparse arrangement. Nice songwriting, singing, and guitars. This could be your coffee house version and the song would also work with full rock band treatment.

Cheers,

Frank

i hear some high female vocal harmonies later on in the song...just a gut feeling.

GOOD song, good lyric.
Sometimes the distorted guitar sounds brilliant and other times it doesn't.
That's the luck of the game.
Well done.


Cheers

Nice! I really dig your vocal, good write too.

Ray, thanks for listening and taking time to comment.
About the distorted guitar, maybe some listeners like it maybe some don't.
I never I never challenge a listener's perspective.
I can say there's no luck in this one, it is exactly what I was shooting for brilliant or not.

Thanks Dave,
I know that distortion can be in your face, the subject of the lyrics is not a pleasant one, I wanted some hurt in there.

You nail that feeling for sure.

This is one hell of a song. Loved everything about. You vocal is very strong on this one. Nice guitar chops also.

Two thumbs up.


Me, it's not about how many times you fail, it's about how many times you get back up.

Hi Captain,

This is an excellent listen in every way. You've got the knack for making good music!

I love the minor-key vibe. The lyrics are a perfect fit for it.

It's two thumbs up from me!

All the best,
Noel

Janice immediately said the tune reminded her of Neil Young's
instrumental in the Depp movie "Dead Man."

We feel the fills well work in the way they accentuate the lyrics.

"Fury of emotion carries thru to daylight
The restless rage is rolling with no end in sight
And I brought this storm upon us when I told her those lies"

Excellent lyric. And vocal. And mix.

Enjoyed it!

Thanks kids,
Wow......just gave that a listen, pretty cutting edge stuff there from Mr. Young.

I had to apply some interesting techniques to get that sound.

Computer issues suck . . . but glad you got yourself back up and running—welcome back! And, boy, what a re-entry tune. Love the write—really like how you carried the “storm” elements throughout the tune. The vocal is excellent and works perfectly with the stripped down arrangement. Very impressive outing!

My very best to you,

Deej

Your voice reminds me a bit of Stephen Stills. Song sounds like something he might do, too. Nice work.

Thanks Deej,
I've used the guitar to do some "sound effects" in the past.
It can be a little gimmicky so, I don't do it too often.

Stephen Stills...quite a compliment, thank you.

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."
