Hello forum friends. Been gone too long! Just one thing and another I guess, but I'm happy to be back. This is a song which reflects my cynical side. Sadly, that side is showing itself somewhat often these days. I always like the Byrds vibe in BIAB, the band with the electric 12-string. I've written a few songs using that and this is another one. Sad about the recent loss of David Crosby......huge fan of CSN and the Byrds! I will catch up to the tunes here in the next week or so. Here's to a great bunch of folks, and the hope for a better 2023! Will post the tracks and lyrics soon. Hope you enjoy and I'd love to hear what you think. Take care all! Greg

Welcome back. I always enjoyed your stuff and this is right up there.

I've always been a Roger McGuinn fan. This reminds me of his music.

One of my favorites from you.

An excellently captured vocal as usual.
I enjoyed the jangle.

Greg,
Musically the Byrds vibe is definitely there, lyrically I hear the social conscience and big-picture scope of Jackson Browne.
Excellent vocal as usual; will have another listen when you post lyrics.

All the Byrds talk drew me to a listen, and there was no disappointment, nor lack of new originality. Enjoying this now as... I... type.

Hi Greg. Where did you go?

This sound takes me back a while. Very effective.
I think the bass line could be more interesting in parts but other than that small thing it's a good 'un.

Definitely a 60's Byrd groove and sound.
Excellent vocal and mix.


My goal this weekend is to move just enough each day so that no one pokes me to see if I'm dead or not.

I am listening now, really, really good. Did you use all BIAB tracks to do this one? I have heard a lot of people on here and this is excellent. Good to see you back, I have always enjoyed your stuff, looking forward to hearing more in the future from you. What a great song. This is a song like you use to hear a long time ago. I love the feel of it. Thank you for sharing, and I hope to hear a lot more from you in the future.

Everything about this is so darned good.

And just when I thought it couldn't get better, you add harmony vocals.

Easy listening, but melancholic and regretful. So a great write, too.

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

Ooooo. I KNEW there would be harmony, and it's terrific, Greg. Heck, the whole Byrds vibe is well played. Such a good write, and a keen, clean production. Excellent melody, and the song is ripe with cool dynamics. Always good to hear a new one of your velvet-throated songs, Greg. Take care, and enjoy whatever happens.


Enjoy whatever happens!

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.
