You Can’t Shape My Dreams

Our latest is a simple “two verses, chorus and I’m outta here” little ditty. But it was fun and we hope you find it to be also. If interested your time to listen and comment is most appreciated. Thanks to PG Music and our music partner Peter.

Bud: arrangement, mix, mastering, lyric and photo
Peter: guitar solos/fills, guitar mix, and arrangement

Vocals: Rodes mic > Scarlett interface > Izotope Nectar (Izotope Vocal Doubler on harmony)

Drums: RealDrums NashvilleRadioShuffle > Waves CLA Drums
Snare (doubled) > Waves Magma BB T
Cymbal (doubled) > Logic Pro X ChromaVerb

Bass: RealTrack 3566 Electric,

Other stuff:
We were auditioning a few BiaB Americana based styles when we ran across a demo for which we much liked the progression … so we appropriated it smile A first for us as we typically work up our own. And, yes, there is an unusual chord present smile

The lyric is on SC.

Catchy bouncing groove. Nice tasty guitar links. Good harmonica in the vocal lines.

Janice, Bud & Peter,

What a great song! Love the tempo and arrangement. Some very cool instrumental & vocal phrasing - really awesome.

Crisp and clean production - perfect and completely suits the song.

"I KNOW MY WAY AROUND THE TOLLS AND TROLLS
I’M GONNA FLY, GONNA CHASE THOSE DREAMS
DON’T THINK ABOUT TRYING TO CLIP MY WINGS
GO FIND A FOOL TO SHARE YOUR SCHEMES"

That's some great writing!

Loved it!

Bob

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.

Hey You Three ...

As always, a stellar song and production. Exceptional lyrics. Bob already commented on the lyrical portion that really appealed to me. Peter just plays the heck out of ya'll's songs. Everything is spot-on. Of course, there's never a doubt of that being otherwise.

A real nice, peppy empowerment song. This is a little different than your typical production, but different in a delicious way!

Lots to like here. Best to all of you.

Alan

That's one spirited song. Peter's interjections really add to the UP vibe.
Terrific writing & performance all 'round.
COOOOL.
It gave off some of the vibe of the "other" tracks on A Night At The Opera.

Janice, Bud, and Peter, when I see these three names together I know I'm in for some really great ear candy!

Outstanding vocal, guitar, and mix.
Peter always knows what to play to enhance your songs.
We all know that Janice could sing the dictionary and it would sound great!
Bud's mixes are always professional.
What more could we ask for?
Another winner.

Loved it.

I guess this is thematically the country version (I hope it's actually country) of my song "A world is waiting for me" smile

Very catchy, gets my feet moving.
As always, Janice's voice is what I love the most, but the production and guitars aren't bad either smile

Great work by the three of you!

J&B....well that was fun! no blues here...I love the bounce and tempo...the chorus has a Mamas and Papas vibe...love it! Peter is seamless with the track and the solo is typical Peter stuff (tight and pro)...great vocals and harmonies and another pro sounding mix Bud!

Hey, you guys, I have a request. Take a random page from an old phone book, and you folks will turn it into a hit. What another beauty you have here. Such enthralling vocals and a pleasingly fun guitar in an excellent mix of a wonderfully uplifting-in-spite-of-the-apparent-anchors song in the "a simple 'two verses, chorus and I’m outta here' little ditty" style. You make it sound easy, but we know it as incredibly good work.


Enjoy whatever happens!

Janice and Bud,

Pretty fun ditty all the way around! Great solo guitar to match the awesome vocals. Love the surprise slide vocals in V2! My ears were expecting a different rhyme scheme for the chorus (AA-BB) but it didn't take away from the song. Great job!

Wowf. That left me off-kilter. wink

I love the bouncy feel and the mix, and the guitar is inventive.

And Janice is always a delight to listen to.

But the song refuses to play by the rules, and I'm a lazy listener.

Still, a fun listen, and well done!

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

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."
