Not Every Day Was Sad

I really like this STYLE which gave me the inspiration for this song. I added my Fender Nashville Power Telecaster on the intro, break, and fills. Everything else is BIAB. The tracks were exported from BIAB to Reaper and the guitar, vocals, and harmonies added.

Thanks for listening,
Bob grin

Wow, Buford - great job on this one! It sounds sincere, and really heartfelt, and the guitar work on it is superb smile And the backing harmonies that kicked in around 1 minute, I definitely didn't anticipate that!

A very catchy tune - thanks so much for sharing! You should be proud of this one smile

Hi, Deryk. So pleased you enjoyed this one. It took a lot longer than most, but lots of fun to do.

Thanks for listening,

Very cool tone on the tele. You sure have that dialed in. Super vocal and backtrack

Hey, Scott. Glad you liked the song.

My Tele setup is dirt simple:

- Bridge pickup: full volume, tone down a bit from full (10% down)
- Single (no repeats) short slapback echo: note and echo about the same volume
- Compression: heavy and obvious, with lots of sustain (not max)
- No reverb, except what the master mix adds.
- D'Addario Jazz-Rock (EXP115) string set with an added nine on top makes playing steel licks a snap to execute: 9,11,14,28,38,49 (throw out the 3rd string 18 that comes with the set)
Your fingers will thank you.

You can hear the pick sounds at the beginning of the song, which sort of indicate the high level of compression. Give it a shot if you like/or need that kind of tone.

Thanks for listening,
Bob

Thanks for sending me your settings. I managed to pickup a well loved 83 Tele with a rosewood neck. I have been fooling with settings but everything sounds like my strats. Look forward to getting a more traditional tele tone. Tom Adams also gets a wicked sound out of his tele as well..

Hi, Joe. Glad you enjoyed it. The STYLE seemed to suggest to me a kind of Eagles thing. Like "Peaceful Easy Feeling", or "Lyin' Eyes". So I pulled out my best Don Felder, Bernie Leadon chops and got to work. Makes me want to do more like this. We'll see. smile

Thanks for listening,
Bob

Bob,

This is such a great sound! I really like the laid-back, easy 8-beat groove. It's a perfect fit for the song. The write, the arrangement and the presentation are outstanding to my ears. I agree with Deryk, those background harmonies are a pleasant surprise.

There's a lot of craftsmanship on display with what you've done here.

Really enjoyed it!

Regards,
Noel

Very nice showcase of what BiaB + fine user picking + fine user vocal can yield.

And the write and production are in the pocket.

Enjoyed it!

Band-in-a-Box® User Feedback - Thank You!

Take a look at some of the recent feedback we've received from program users just like you:

"I started using Band-in-a-Box October 2016 . It's been money very well spent. I'm now nearing the finish of my first All Originals Cd. I let a local musician hear some of the songs and he was amazed at the quality. Guys it takes time and effort to learn but its worth it 100%!"
-John S.

"Amazing RealTracks I have used these on 30 or more songs! Some even used complex chords that amazed me how well the Banjo still worked. Unbelievable Software! All the backup band you will ever need no matter what your skill level!"
-Tom C.

"Like lots of others I use it all the time, putting in the chords of a tune, choosing the right style and tempo is a godsend, I'm a jazz musician and playing tunes and improvising with chords in front of you is brilliant, less than an hour ago I was playing my tenor sax along with my Band-in-a-Box backing band."
-Barrie M.

"I love Band-in-a-Box! I use it every day to practice, compose, and teach guitar lessons. Keep up the great work, PG!"
-Brian P.

"A Great business....a great program and a fantastic way to easily create your own songs....or backing tracks to play along with.....a program that everyone should get...."
