Blue Kentucky Rain

I know that talk is cheap
That’s OK, I ain’t got a lot to say
I’m just wondering how you’re doing these days

Tell me how do you sleep
On all those fancy rich man satin sheets
Before I’d let you break my heart again
I’d rather be walking in the cold night wind
My heart don’t need your kind of pain
I’d rather be out in the blue Kentucky rain

They say you reap just what you sow
I’d be more than curious to know
Of you finding out all that glitters ain’t gold

Tell me how do you sleep
On all those fancy rich man satin sheets
Before I’d let you break my heart again
I’d rather be walking in the cold night wind
My heart don’t need your kind of pain
I’d rather be out in the blue Kentucky rain

My heart don’t need your kind of pain
I’d rather be out in the blue Kentucky rain

Yeah, I love rockabilly! Great groove on this and love your vocal!

My favorite line: "My heart don’t need your kind of pain
I’d rather be out in the blue Kentucky rain"

Bringing that piano in panned right during that second chorus was unexpected but really worked well I thought!

Good stuff Kenny, very much enjoyed this one!

Kenny,

You impress me more with each offering...

Excellent write. Tight. Your melodies are SO "singable" - a rare quality in writers... On top of (or under) good lyrics, it's "gold".

Good BAND. Excellent vocal. Good mix.

Great listen.

Great job Kenny, I particularly liked the hook line. Hooks are sometimes hard to find these days. I also really liked the Rockabilly styling. Your vocal rocked!

Wow, the groove on this is infectious! It sounds professionally mixed, and the songwriting is well done here. It's just the right balance of catchy and raw.

Thanks for sharing smile

Excellent Kenny.
Sooth and professional.
You got the FX's on the vocal just write.
You really captured an ear with this one.

Great job

Hi Kenny. I think Torrey summed this one up pretty good. I'm working on a rock-a-billy tune myself. Love the genre. The added reverb on your vocal really sells this as the real deal. You captured the feel perfectly. Great job!

There are 300 RealTracks Sets available (over 2,500 RealTracks!), and here at PG Music we have this to say about them: You'll want to use RealTracks in all of your projects... and you can!

Save Notation Window as a Video with Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac

Did you know... Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac allows you to save the Notation Window as a video? What a great way to share your songs with users, and LEARN from the notation as you listen!

From the program manual:
[Save As] | Save as video
-In the Make Notation Video dialog, select a track at the upper left corner. (Note: The dialog title says “Make Chord Sheet Video” until you select a track.)
-You can also set the dimension (width/height) of the video and select the number of frames per second and a specific codec.
-Press the [OK - Render Video] button to start rendering the video. When the video has been created, press the [Show Video File] button.
-You can then double click on the file to watch the rendered video.

Note: A special use of this feature is to combine a Video RealTracks (new with version 2018) with the corresponding notation in a single video. This creates an educational video, which shows the actual performance with notation/tab, playing over your chord progression! To do this, right-click on the Master button or one of the track buttons at the top of the main screen and select Render Video(s) from the menu.
