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.

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.

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.

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."
