Howdy Dewey....

This is a good write....mix works for me.
Lead vox has a good melody & BGV's are tight and clear.
Well performed all around.

Back to it....

Excellent write, well sung and produced.

It seems redundant to talk about lyrics to the person who wrote this, but indulge me... I love how you used title object is as a device to tell a story, in a way that feels authentic and emotionally honest. You pulled me into the song, both with the sad backstory and the narrator's take away.

Top-shelf writing!


Really, not much else to say, other than really well done. smile

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

Dewey, this is one great song.
I really liked your vocal on this one.
Great lyrics.
Super drums!
Great mix.

Excellent write, Dewey. I really like how you build it. Excellent vocals as always. I really enjoy the lyrics and how you brought the whole story out through that glass. The melody is so good, even just the two notes of "this glass."


Enjoy whatever happens!

A solid job all around.

Especially lyrically:

THIS GLASS
Was a cure and a curse
Delivered needed "medicine" that made life worse

Quote marks are mine.

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.

Dewey,

A nice production and good vocals.
(the drums seemed too busy for the bridge - something more subtle might have been more effective there?)
Well mixed.

I think you're right, Floyd! As you know, that's an easy fix. Thanks for the input! I've got some potential major lyric changes too that I'm thinking about as well.

I like the song and production is solid. I agree with Floyd on the drums.

Maybe I'm missing something but I don't get it. What is the glass and what's so important about it? I kept trying to figure out what you were singing about. Was it a drinking glass or something else?

Guitarhacker, Thank you for asking because I was second-guessing my lyrics on this one. As I noted in my response to Floyd, I was considering major lyric changes in order to clarify what "This Glass" was. I plan to re-write a few lines in this one and re-demo it so, if you are willing, I'd love to know if the pending changes clear up your confusion.

Na zdrowie!

Dewey

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!

Note: the Band-in-a-Box® keychain is only included with flash drive backup copies, and cannot be purchased separately.

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."
