Nice one rharv! Love that loping feel style. Excellent vocal and mix.
But why so short? There's outstaying your welcome and then there's turning on the welcome mat and leaving! I want more! Must be room in there for a rip-snorting guitar solo surely?

Hey rharv,

This song is as professional as they come! I love the way you've massaged the Realtracks into such a rich a professional sound. The arranging, production, vocals, everything! is top notch.

I have to agree with Skyline, I want more. It's too good to finish so soon.

All the best,
Noel

I'm smiling as I type. Both Silvertones and Barry said the same thing; you should make it longer, it ends too soon. My thinking was that I wanted it to end with listener wanting more instead of dragging it out to meet the typical 3 minutes. I suppose another 30 seconds or so would be nice, but I want to keep it short and sweet.

Skyline - you up for adding the solo? I'll extend a mix for you ..

Just saw this and DL. Cool nice job Bob and it was fun for me.
I sent you a kick drum track that went with the bass track.I think you used it. It sounds like it.
My Chain:Carvin BB75 5 string/IKMultimedia Stealth USB interface/ IkMultimedia Ampeg SVX Modeling Plug/Out of Stealth into my Audigy 2 ZS Notebook Card in.
The Stealth is ASIO only. I play it through IKMultimedia's Ampeg SVX Modeling Plugin in Standalone using the B15 amp.

Thanks, I took suggestions and lengthened it so John could throw a solo on it and he tore it up. I'll post later if things go as planned.

Band-in-a-Box® - Freezing Tracks

Like what you hear in Band-in-a-Box®? Make sure to Freeze the track(s) or song! Once frozen, it won't be regeneraged or change when you play it again - and your choice isn't final, since you can unfreeze them just as easily:
-press the blue snowflake button within the track name of the mixer window
-press the blue snowflake button within the expanded toolbar of the program (Ctrl + T will swap between the two toolbar views), and select the track(s)

Note: If you want to force Band-in-a-Box® to generate tracks without adjusting the Freeze settings, hold down the Shift key as you press the [Generate and Play] button (the fly-by hint will remind you of that) or choose the menu command Play | Play Special | Generate (even if tracks are frozen).

To learn more about freezing your Band-in-a-Box® tracks or songs, visit Chapter 5: Playing Songs | Freezing tracks of our Online Manual.
