This instantly reminded be of Buddy Holly - not the sound or the arrangement but the vocal melody and lyric. NOT a bad thing by any means.
I'm afraid I'm not a fan of Brent's BIAB solo - they always seem to be steeped in Country tone & twang.
That doesn't detract from the song though...solid stuff that works really well.


Cheers

Lots to like about this Nigel. I felt that the whole song sat together really nicely. Nice arrangement all around.

Nigel, sure like your style man. I also liked the guitars, and like Misha, I thought you played them off each other very well during the solo. Nice.

Nigel, you sang the heck out of this one....outstanding vocal!
You nailed the R&B genre!
IMHO your best to date.


Me, it's not about how many times you fail, it's about how many times you get back up.
Cop, that's not how field sobriety tests work.

Good song, you arranged and mixed the RealTracks very well into a professional and coherent sounding song.
Best part (as always) are your vocals.
Very, very good smile

We definitely hear a touch of Ry Cooder in your vocal, and that is good.

Nice, laid back r&b with a very clean mix.
Nice soundstage on our monitors.

Cool!

Boy, I like this. It's simple, but has that classic feel to it, crisp and clean and sounds like an Eric Clapton guitar!!

Hi Nigel,

I still love you, at least your songs and this one in particulair.
What a nice, uncomplicated song, with very good lead parts.
Your vocals are, as always, very good. Straight to the heart!
That's why I started my post as I did...

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.

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."
