Mountain Magic

I guess you could call this Alternative Folk Rock. It features a Mandola on lead.

I apologize to those whom I didn't get to answer their comments on my previous post. Between my surgery follow-ups and Di's never-ending medical appointments, and everyday life requirements, I just ran out of time if I wanted any sleep. But, my appointment issues are less demanding and Di's will probably decrease, so I should be able respond to comments for a while. Thanks for understanding.

Hope you enjoy this one.

Hi Alan, although is nice to respond to comments from the listeners life's matters takes precedent. I sometimes fail to do so soon enough, but it's ok, I understand.
To the point, this is a very well made tune as you have us accustomed to.
Take care

Mike B.

Great sound. Really loved the instruments you chose and I'm sure jealous of your mixing abilities. I hope both of you get well and get rested.

Thanks a bunch, Brad, Sure do appreciate all that!

As far as the mixing, I don't use anything but Audacity - no legit DAW. Most of my mixing is done on the chord input page - lots of stuff going on behind the scenes there. I then touch it up a tad in Audacity. I master it with the Soundcloud mastering option. That's it - nothing else.

It typically takes me 4 - 10 hours to put together a song - from the very inception until it's as finished as it's probably going to get. The great majority of my posts are instrumentals since my wife's health doesn't allow her to sing very often anymore. I only sing when I want to annoy people - it usually works!

Thanks again ...

Alan

With its unique tonal qualities, the mandola is perfectly suited to carry this song. The backing instruments are well placed and mixed. I was hooked from start to finish.


My music may not set the world on fire but if it causes a glow in just one person's heart, it has all been worthwhile smile

Beautiful. How do you do it, time and time again? I genuinely loved this one - and I can't remember when (if ever) I didn't like a track of yours. Wishing you and your wife nothing but good health and good things coming your way. Thanks ever so much for sharing your music with us.

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."
