Something a little different from us:

Back to Life (audio link), Back to Life (video link)

I keep a guitar in our family room and often noodle on it (unplugged!) while my wife is watching one of her cooking shows or decorating shows. The main theme (guitar panned left) came from noodling around and the rest of the song built on that.

The Band:

Realtrack: ~2505:Piano, Electric, HeldChords 085
MIDI Supertrack: 4435:Synth, Pad SynthMasterDelicateSounds Low2-note

Bass: Marty Straub from BabuMusic
Vocals: Christiane (Chris) Spruit
Drums: EZDrummer3

I'm playing the guitar parts (three tracks)

Mixed in Reaper, mastered with Ozone.

Back to Life (2023, Chris Spruit)

Here I am
Through the ages
Coming back to life
Back again
Cause life goes on, like a storm

GOOD bye my friends we'll be
One blink one tragedy
Interchangeably

Cause life goes on, like a storm

Back to life, Coming back to life

Mornin' Blue....

Listening now.
Cool cut....mesmerizing instrumentation, good axe playing and good vox.
Kind of a Riders On The Storm vibe.

Very well done....I like it!

BlueAttitude,

What a great opening . . . really pulls the listener in. Terrific vocal and love the effects you’ve put on it—just perfect for the song. Excellent solo and the production value overall is off the charts. Outstanding!

My best to you all,

Deej

Classic Blue Attitude through and through.

Chris does an excellent job on the Write and the Vocals.
Marty's Bass - delicious.
Dave's always-delightful guitar work. Both "The Lick" and the Solos - tasty.

Good Drum choice.
Good mix.

Good Music.

Dave, Marty and Chris...I love "noodles" and that was certainly some of the best I've tasted lately...really cool riff to ride on for sure...Dave your solo guitar work is exceptional again...Marty the bass is transparently there...unnoticeable but guiding the song like a good referee that you don't notice but the game can't go on without...and Christiane's vocal is beautiful, ethereal and haunting...love the vocal effects...five stars!

Wow, loved the production! From the very beginning with that riff and then right on through - captivating sound. The effects used were fantastic. Everyone involved in this one was right on the money. Oh, and great ending bass lick Marty - great job everyone!

Happy you liked this one!

Your comment on the Doors song made me smile, my working title for this song, before we had any lyrics, was A Floydian Storm wink

MAN, at 1.14 when the solo kicked it - it really KICKED!
I'd been musing on the cool left leaning guitar and then whammo - it was usurped.
The lyrics and melody definitely enhance the intro guitar's moodiness.
Mr Bassman - well it was his sound that set up the image in my scone of the trio playing on stage.
3.24 and that guitar is knocking on doors again.
Christine's floating vocals over the final solo are AMAZING.
Methinks I like it.


Cheers

Pro all the way. If I were to tweak anything here it would be another 4dB on Marty's bass.
Dave, when is PG Music going to record you so the rest of us can utilize your great sound?
I love the whole thing.

For me there’s no better place in the band than to have one leg in the harmony world and the other in the percussive. Thank you Paul Tutmarc and Leo Fender.

Hi Dave,

Mysterious, a cool rhythm introduced by the guitar, super vocals from Chris, and exiting bass from Marty!
If this is the result of noodling while your wife is watching coocking programs than she must be some coock to let you make this kind of songs.
In a way I am joking, but not on the song. Its just great!
Tell your wife to take a glas rode wijn, and you to and enjoy what you made.
It is a very good one, Dave!!!

Greetings to Chris and Marty,
Hans

Dave, I also have an unplugged electric next to my recliner. I am a fellow noodler. The drums are a standout here along with the bass and and as always the lead guitar. Chris lays down a good vocal and I thought there was brevity in my lyrics but this one's got me beat. It says what it needs to say so why jumble it up with unnecessary words. excellent mix. I liked it, Tom

This such a great song! It's almost hypnotic. I'm sure I'll be back for at least one more listen ... probably more. Each of you palyed your parts so dang good! Sounds like it just came out of an LA studio.

Take care ...

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?

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."
