Hi Elliott,

Great blues with some excellent variations and light and shade.

Well done with the vocals and I also enjoyed the Mmms background vocals.

Best Regards
Nigel

Great blues tune. I like the way you built it up. The female backing vocals definitely added to the over all feel. Nice job!

I used East West VST for some of the backing vocals. I just uploaded a remix. Thanks for listening and comments

I've only listened to the remix, but this is a great blues.
Well written, arranged and mixed, but the absolute highlight are your vocals and the BG ladies.
Very, very well done!

Fantastic blues!
Great dynamic build up with a super ending.
Very strong vocal!

Were those the EastWest Backup singers?

You know I love good blues so yes I loved this one.


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

Very nice. Great arrangement. I love the East West backup singers. They are very good!


My wife asked if I had seen the dog bowl. I told her I didn't even know he could.

Ya I am singing. I have often been told that I dont put enough energy into my singing (that's because I am shy about my voice ) so I went all out on this one.

I used a VST plugin that brings the tone down, and mixed it with my natural voice to give it that deep delta blues tone.
Thanks for listening.

That's one heck of a ballad!

Engaging story, good build, interesting arrangement that kept me listening all the way through.

Loved the vocal delivery.

I've always enjoyed your vocals, nothing to be shy about. More, please! laugh

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

That’s an excellent and effective build in the arrangement.

The band and the bgv’s were very supportive of your gritty and powerful vocal. Love that attitude!

The lyric had us caught up in his story too. smile

Enjoyed it!

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."
