HI ROG ...

The song left me, also, with that cheerful feel, as you so kindly mentioned. I hadn't considered that it might have a greater reach than here. Thanks so much for the kind words. I'll pass your greeting on to Di. Wishing you the very best. Please be safe.

Thank you so much. I truly enjoyed your review. I never thought of it as an indie sound, but you might be right! Again, thanks so much. best to you. Be safe ...

Glad the song amused you along the way. And I mean that in a sincere and positive way. Just about all genres of music have something good in them if performed well. I just let myself get carried away with whatever pops into my mind. Thanks a bunch! Best to you and please be safe ...

Hi Hans ...

And that is a very joyful review! Thank for the extremely nice comments. And yes, a nice Gypsy-style vocal would be a nice addition. I just don't know anyone who can do it!

Best wishes and be safe ...

Hello Ray ...

Hope all is well down under. We're doing okay here in Alabama, for the most part. Thanks for the nice words. Sometimes I choose poorly for the tracks, sometimes it get it right. Glad this one works nicely. Thanks for letting me know.

Howdy, Floyd!

I'm never sure how to reply to your comments when they are so nice and supportive. I hope a very sincere "Thank You!" works. Because you do humble me with your words.

Best to you & yours. I'll give your greeting to Di. We both appreciate that.

Thanks so much for your nice comments. Gypsy-style singers a re few and far between these days. But, yes that would be a nice addition.

You are a testimony to how much can be done with BiaB alone. Amazing.

Quite the mashup indeed. We were struck by how melodic that fiddle sounded
especially not to be a solo RT.

As Janice said, "It's a happy song!" smile

Well done Al!

Hi Al. Nice acoustic version. Funny how we think alike. I also have a song called "Nobody's Business". I just added the words "Ain't" and gave it an old Motown style.

Howdy Folks!

Thank ya so much for all those kind and humbling comments. And yeah, I was taken by surprise when I listen to that fiddle track. I had listen to 3 or 4 prior to that one, but immediately decided on the one I chose after just 10 - 15 seconds of listening.

Glad you liked it ... thanks for telling me. Take care and be safe ...

Alan

Thanks so much, Henry. Your comments always put a smile on my face!

I went over and listened to the link you provided ... terrific flashbacks as I listened! The MoTown sounds of the 60s and 70s are some of the best music I've ever listened to. The Temptations, Four Tops, Marvin Gayt, Sam Cook, etc. You really captured the sound!

Again, thank you for your very nice comments!

Best to you. Be safe, my friend ...

Alan

I'm always amazed at how many awesome musicians are hidden in BiaB.

You've done a really nice job finding them and getting them to play together well.

Band-in-a-Box® - What People Are Saying...

Wow, check out the latest feedback from Band-in-a-Box® users!

"I have one song I've been torturing over to get the sound right for quite some time and I merely keyed in the chords and what BB generated is awesome. Just what I hoped that song would sound like. What had taken me months to get right (and couldn't), the program could do in about an hour - AMAZING!"

"Great Ear Training Exercises! And I love that that you can set the tempo to whatever you choose. It's great for learning a tune!"

"A very good and easy to use musical program!"

"It's amazingly easy to use! Write a song? No problem! Add background sound track to a video? No problem! Put notes on a staff and have BB make up a chord progression and tell what key you are in? No problem! Start with a chord progression and have BB make a melody line? No problem!"

"Still the best practice tool I have found, great for running lines, improvising over and really helpful for working on song writing ideas as well! Good for beginners, and the more musical skill and knowledge you have the more you will get out of the software."

"I create demo songs with Band-in-a-Box, it helps me to get my ideas across to my engineer!"

"Been using Band-in-a-Box for years. Outstanding product from a great company!"

"It's like buying a Musical History Jukebox. It comes with probably 3000 styles and is like hiring session musicians to play rhythm with you, they even have soloists! It introduces you to so many types of rhythms that you other wise would know nothing about. "

"Paul McCartney said you gotta have a great band behind you. Well, Band-in-a-Box is my band."

"It's as easy as typing in the chords, choosing your style, instruments, etc., and off you go! Learning the tune? You can slow it down while you work on it then speed it up. My favorite analogy is a good chess program, which will play at your speed and level and is eternally patient!"

"I love my Band in a box, it does so much! Besides all the RealTracks and song ideas, it's a great tool to stay sharp with your licks. Social distancing got you down? Can't jam with friends? Pick out any song and go to the mixer button, there you can mute any instrument that's playing so you can jump right in and play along!"

"I love it. I'm a drummer, and Band-in-a-Box really keeps me on my toes!"

"The DAW plugin is really great. Trust me on this. I use it with Studio One.

"This is how I've been able to gig solo for the past 20 years. Band-in-a-Box is the great equalizer for us none rhythm players."

"Wouldn't want to be without it! One of the best things I bought in my life. Simple as that."

"As a songwriter I really love to work with Band-in-a-Box. The only limitation is your own creativity."

"I've used Band-in-a-Box for 25 years and thanks to this program and the advice of PG Music staff I've written over 100 songs. It's great software and amazing help to me as a musician. CONGRATS!!!"

Thank you for all the amazing feedback!
