Wow - you nailed this! It reminds of old school country from the 70's. It sounds sincere and heartfelt - you can really hear the passion in both the instrumental and the vocals. I also really found the lyrics helped push it to the next level. You did an amazing job writing this. It makes it really relatable.

Great job here, and thanks so much for sharing smile

I don't much like country songs, but if I have to listen to one, this would be high on my list smile Beautiful melancholy melody, great arrangement and excellent mix, that bass is really strong.

Really strong lyrics most people can relate to. Nice layering of textures with the fiddle and the pedal steel. Good job.

Deryk, thanks...!! I love that old school Bob McDill composed country music.

Now that we're finally moved in at the farm and getting settled, I will have time to write and record quite a bit more than I did during last year. I was so busy moving, and getting things done here on the farm getting ready for the house and everything else that was going on..... I don't think I even turned on my DAW from late spring until the fall.....

But, I'm back..... as Jack Nicholson said in one of his movies.

"don't much like country songs"? huh? Well, I'm glad you took the time to "choke this one down" and have a listen. I really appreciate it when folks who don't necessarily like the style and genre take the time to listen and then comment.

Yep.... the bass is strong. Perhaps a bit. I need to run ARC on my studio and get it tuned more accurately to reflect what's really going on in the mix. Moving from one studio to a new one kinda throws you off a bit. Gotta relearn this room. Thanks

Herb, I made a good living playing this kind of George Strait style country for many years. Good write and performance. The guitar adds a lot to this fine production and your editing on steel. mando,fiddle and B3 was exceptionally well done. My kind of song. Worth many listens, Tom

For us this harkens back to that, for us, golden period of Strait, Jackson, Chesnutt, et al — and maybe a bit further back on to Gosdin.

For us it has a live “small venue” feel to it that enhances the “tears in your beer” lyric. It’s very easy to visualize sadness of the story.

The band is hittin' the note and sounds well honed - both your performances and the BiaB guys.

We enjoyed it.

J&B

PS if you ever need or want a reminder of this era check out Chesnutt’s recent album “Tradition Lives.”

A good '70's Country sound to this. Your vocals work well for that era.

The mandolin is well placed and your guitar fills work well. A good mix here.

Hi Herb,

What I thought after getting to the chorus first time is "David Frizell doing an Alan Jackson song". That's pretty good company in my book.

Like Tom, I enjoyed a real nice lifestyle playing lead guitar on music like this for many, many years. this is legitimate, true country. Great arrangement and delivery. loved the band!

Alan

thanks Tom, yeah, I hear ya.... there was many hours spent on dimly lit stages playing all the "good" country music that folks loved so they could slow dance for a bit.

Glad you found something in it worth a few listens.

#TechTipTuesday - Band-in-a-Box® Patch Updates

If you're ever experiencing an issue with your Band-in-a-Box program, make sure you have the most recent patch update for your version - this can be done at http://www.pgmusic.com/support.updates.win.htm.

Patch updates are released frequently, and are created by our development team to fix any reported bugs, tweak existing features within the program, update demos and other files as needed, and more!

To find out which version of the program you have, visit Help | About Band-in-a-Box within the program. You will see the full version number listing as:
Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2018 (512)

The number in parentheses is the build number. As you can see, my Band-in-a-Box is up to date and will continue to stay that way because I've selected "Automatically check for updates every 7 days" within the Help | Check for Updates.... option (you can set the number of days to a different number). This window will also look to see if you're version is up to date, so you don't technically have to visit http://www.pgmusic.com/support.updates.win.htm if you didn't want to!

Once you've installed your patch update (make sure the program is closed when you're doing this), give it another try - if you are still experiencing the same issue you can report it by contacting us directly, or you can post your result to the Forum thread that also announces the patch update, like our recent Band-in-a-Box 2018 Build 512 Update (Feb 15) post.

PowerTracks Pro Audio 2018 is Here!

PowerTracks Pro Audio 2018 is here! PowerTracks Pro Audio 2018 includes many new features and enhancements:

Windows Audio (WASAPI) driver support. This allows for low latency audio recording/playback without requiring ASIO. Note that this supports 1 stereo input plus 1 stereo output at a time. For multiple inputs/outputs, you should continue to use either MME or ASIO.

ABC Notation format support. You can save a track of notation in a popular ASCII text format to import into other programs, or you can paste this format into a user forum as a way of sending the track (usually the melody and chord symbols) to other users without having to attach a file.

The built-in Audio Chord Wizard detection in the Chords window automatically detects the chords of the song, based on the audio data from all non-muted audio tracks. This works similar to the standalone Audio Chord Wizard, except that it uses the current bar lines of the existing song.

Notation Enhancements:
-X/8 time signature support. This is a special method of displaying 6/8, 9/8, or 12/8 time signatures in the Notation window.
-The Duplicate previous chord in notation right-click menu lets you quickly duplicate the previous chord (group of notes on same peg) without having to reenter it.
-Delete highlighted notes in notation right-click menu lets you delete all highlighted notes.
-Delete all notes on this peg in notation right-click menu lets you delete all notes on the nearest peg that was clicked on.
-You can now enter Section Numbers. Previously, you could enter letters (A-Z) only, but now you can also enter numbers (1-9).

...a full list of the new features in PowerTracks Pro Audio 2018 is available at http://www.pgmusic.com/powertracks.features.htm
