I've been struck by covid this week ...it laid me out for 36 hours or so and I'm slowly trying to get back on my feet...but on the bright side my voice has dropped a octave (or two)...so, I recorded a bass vocal on a song that I thought needed a quartet sound...I tried to keep it subtle in the mix ...anyway a new BiaB arrangement and Covid 19 get credit as producers on this number...so, if you do...thanks for listening...Dan

Firesong,

Well, every dark cloud has a silver lining—how many times have I wished I could drop on octave or two. As for the song, what a great melody and catchy, warm chorus. Really well done backing vocals throughout. Really well done song!

All my best to you,

Deej

Haha, a Covid co-write. Brilliant. I've also recently used an illness to get a tired, achy sound to the vocal, but had nothing like this to show for it. What a wonderful bouncy song, and the harmony is extraordinary. "Jesus wept" is the shortest line in the Bible. In Gethsemane. Another wonderful gem, Dan. Sounds like you got through the virus and came out even stronger.


Enjoy whatever happens!

Hey Deej...thanks for the comments...yeah, I've used colds and flus a few times to wrangle "bass" parts for songs...it's easy to get the lowered voice but a bit tougher to stay on pitch and you have to be careful not to infect your microphone!

Well Dan, I guess there is a bright side to Covid after all! Just kidding of course, nobody wants that! I have a feeling that you could have recorded those fantastic vocals anyway! And speaking of the vocals, they are some of the best that I've ever heard here! What a great song! It's such an easy listening song with a super message! Enjoyed every second of it! Thanks, Torrey

Torrey...thanks so much for your comments...my buddy Marty Smith did a great job with the lead vox...I miss singing with him and Gene as well...I found the vocals for this on an old ADAT tape I was rummaging through the other day...one of those hidden treasures in the closet I guess...anyway I appreciate you taking the time to listen and comment...Dan

Hey Floyd...thanks for sharing your comments...I really appreciate them...to me harmony is what music is all about...it takes at least three notes to form a basic chord and I believe that vocals sound best in three parts (IMO and if I'm sick well a quartet is possible! thanks again for your thoughts...Dan

This would fit right in on a Sunday morning show at the bluegrass festivals we used to attend (and gig at), Dan.

Wonderful, tight harmonies and a fine supporting band for this uplifting lyric!

Enjoyed it and hope you continue to feel better each day.

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.

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."
