If you don't like Country, you're gonna HATE this. Always wanted this song to have that "tinkly country piano" and a pedal steel. Thanks to PGMusic and BIAB, that is now possible!!!

Feeling Nothing At All

Here are the RealTracks:

Style is WALTZIN.STY (Waltzin' - Slow Sw. Waltz)

RealTracks in song: ~1121:Bass, Acoustic, CountryWaltz Sw 085
RealTracks in song: 1884:Piano, Acoustic, Soloist Country12-8John Sw 065 (Bluesy)
RealTracks in song: ~824:Guitar, Acoustic, Strumming Country Waltz Sw 085
RealTracks in song: ~1126:Pedal Steel, Rhythm CountryWaltz Sw 085
RealDrums in Song: NashvilleWaltzSw^2-a:Sidestick, Hihat , b:Snare, Ride

I added an acoustic guitar, vocal and harmonies.

As always, comments/suggestions welcomed.

floyd,

I like country, I like country waltz's.
Hence you've got a real winner here.
Your vocals are powerful, and the harmony adds nice touch.
Your lyrics tell an awfully sad heartbreaking story.

The tinkelies sound good me.

I could not listen to this too many times, you are very convincing
with your vocals. I'd have tear in my beer.

Thanks for your hard work, and sharing with us!

I feel some Kenny Rogers and some Willie also.

Very nicely done,

Very nice tune and recording. I think I hear some Charlie Rich in there.

Guys - thanks for listening and for the comments. Obviously, no one does this type of song these days - the comparisons all being 30 (?) years back - Gilley, Kenny, Willie - and I had forgotten about Charlie Rich. The piano does sound a lot like his playing. It's nice to be able to "call on" John Jarvis when you need him....

Wow - you really captured what "real country music" should sound like. You hit all the marks - sad, booze, broken heart... - it's a 70s hit! What a fantastic hook line. I think this is great. And I too cheer BIAB. I gave my band off for a few weeks but I will be calling them back any day now.

Great work!

Floyd,

I just took your style information and created _WALTZIN RT's with it.
Listened to that song so many times.

Am going to create a melodist with it and then try it on a song.

Appreciate your sharing and just love the song...Again.....

Nice slow country groove. I find it harder to mix songs of that tempo than any other. Good tears in the beer and saw dust on the floor lyrics also.

Mootsman - thanks for the listen. The only hard thing about ths one was getting the piano to "fit". The rest just fell into place.

seeker - glad that you could get something out of this. Keep in mind - the piano track is not necessarily meant for this style or tempo. I generated about 25 different version - the variety was amazing. Of those, I heard about 5 that had licks that I liked (thought were right for what I was after). From those 5, I picked pieces to come up with the final track....

I dont generally like country music. but this is the best thing I've heard here in a while! Your voice certainly suits the genre. Love the country break in the voice. Two woots!

Hi Floyd,

You sure know how to maintain "consistently excellent". I sat back, closed my eyes and just listened. It was great.

All the best,
Noel

Review - Xtra Styles PAK 9 for Band-in-a-Box® 2020

Remember that wonderful review of Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac we received last month from "Dr. Dave" Walker, Band-in-a-Box 2020 for Mac … WOW!?

Well, Dr. Dave is at it again! He's had a chance to work with the newest Xtra Styles PAK 9, and shares his thoughts in his recent Xtra Styles PAK 9 for Band-in-a-Box 2020 – Worth It? post at Dr. Dave On Music - make sure you check it out!

Sneak peak...
...PG Music has gone deeper into several styles, using more or fewer instruments, adding unexpected ones, and giving some surprising make-overs. Others are more focused versions of particular styles with more extreme attention to the best of that genre. Other ones combine styles that sound great, such as adding a banjo to a rock or blues track, or a jazz sax to a folk style. There are many wonderful combinations to try out that will expand any songwriter or arranger’s palette. These are the things that make certain songs stand out, and experimenting with them is not just fun (a lot of fun!) but it will expand your horizons on what is possible and even excellent. For instance, my light jazz arrangement worked very well as a country song, which floored me, and also as a folk-alt-jazz fusion. One sax solo was worth the price of admission alone, as it sounds terrific in any of the arrangements.
-"Dr. Dave" Walker

Again we say, "Thank you for the review Dr. Dave!" - we really enjoyed reading this enthusiastic review!

The Band-in-a-Box® Panic "Button"

Today is International Panic Day... did you know that Band-in-a-Box® has a "Panic Button"?

What does it do?

Accessible from the Play Menu (or by selecting F12), you would choose this if your MIDI notes are stuck ON and it’s driving you crazy! Also within the Band-in-a-Box® Play Menu is the "Panic should also Reset DXi synth" option, which will clear hung DXi/VSTi notes.
