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.

Sounds good to me. Maybe a couple of howls on the lead would be a nice touch.

Has a nice relaxing effect on me.

Good job!

Many thanks for the listen Vic.
And I guess "great minds" do think alike smile
I considered sprinkling a wolf howl here and there but thought it would be too distracting; maybe next time.

Hey DC, thanks for the positive feedback.
I'm a slow learner, but I think I might be grasping how to keep it moving forward. My tendency is to dwell [too long] on phrases I like.

Bass Thumper (and all):

Really nice collaboration . . . smooth and engaging out of the gate, nice rhythmic beat that carries the tune along. Well done lead guitar. Production seems stellar to me on all fronts. Quite excellent!

My best to you all,

Deej

Fun track, Steve, and I really dig the bass. Excellent timing and touch. Fun bouncy feel, and interesting changes. The tone Randy got on his Tele is perfect. I like the use of the strings, which I never would've thought of for this piece. John surely has some good rhythm and adds so much to the whole. Loved it.


Enjoy whatever happens!

It's very good, nice sound. Personally I would have tried to put a melody or something that stands out above the accompaniment but it's great work. This reminds me a bit of Chris Rea.

Cool laidback groove, nice chord progression and smooth band, strings are pleasantly varied. The lead guitar melody takes to a flight over a vast forest scenery, I can imagine a lonely wolf running along the road. Nice collaboration, wish to hear another one.

Sounds good - nice and balanced and the bass and drums are holding down the groove.

I enjoyed the listen. laugh

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

The fun bouncy vibe and nice performances made for a great listen.
It's very cinematic and easy to conjure up imagery (a good thing for instrumentals).

The mix is nice and open and has very good dynamics ... all of which sounds excellent on our monitors.

Enjoyed it!

It sounds like the backing track for a song sung by a lady with with a silky, dry, jazzy voice, someone like Astrud Gilberto.

GOOD ONE.
An insistent bass line with just the right amount of variation to avoid disco.
Cool guitar tones.
Well done fellows.


Cheers

Loved the vibe on this one, also the ins and outs of the strings background. Good fit for a non Jazz piece.

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."
