I Miss Those Words

Here it is: I Miss Those Words
I wrote this song because I heard someone say that they missed their loved one after they were gone.

See below how I glued the song together.

****** Song Summary *************

Key=G , Tempo 92, Length (m:s)=4:18
No intro. 95 bar chorus, from bar 1 to bar 95. Repeat x1 chorus

MIDI Drums :33Jazz Drums (33)
RT2038:Guitar, Resonator, Soloist CountryRob Ev 085


I transfered the file into Realband, then, using SampleTank used Band In A Box's Instrument list.
The bass was selected as Acoustic Bass T.
The Drums was selected as Jazz Brushes set.

The Guitar was selected as Finger Picked Acoustic.
The Slow Strings were selected as Movie Strings.

On the vocal tracks (the vocal track was duplicated) I used the following:

George,

Nice song. I hear just a tad of Ernest Tubb here. The only nitpick I have is at times the dobro is just a little too busy in some of the background sections to me, seems to compete a little bit too much with the rest of the arrangement at times. Not a big deal, and others will probably disagree with me. smile

Thanks for sharing!

Steve

Hi Steve,

Thank you for taking a listen.

Yes you are right... I got tired of pasting and cutting (this is using Realand) so I just used the record mixer moves for the dobro tired

I will, when I have time, fix this.

Regards

George

Hi Bob,

Thanks for taking a listen.

When I have some downtime (busy suffering from my disability, which takes a lot out of me) I will re-do this song as I am not totally happy with it.

Best regards

George

Hi George,

It's good to see that people are still playing around with midi. I don't do nearly enough of that. Thanks for posting! Your songwriting keeps on getting better with each post. I really liked the laid-back rhythm to this one. It had a pleasantly relaxed feel.

Regards,
Noel

George,

Nicely done. The production is a perfect match for the song. I really liked the subtle strings in the chorus. Well done.

I agree with your comment.

Don't dismiss the midi styles as there are some really good ones.

Thanks for taking a listen and your nice comments blush

Regards

George

Band-in-a-Box® - What People Are Saying...

Wow, check out the latest feedback from Band-in-a-Box® users!

"I have one song I've been torturing over to get the sound right for quite some time and I merely keyed in the chords and what BB generated is awesome. Just what I hoped that song would sound like. What had taken me months to get right (and couldn't), the program could do in about an hour - AMAZING!"

"Great Ear Training Exercises! And I love that that you can set the tempo to whatever you choose. It's great for learning a tune!"

"A very good and easy to use musical program!"

"It's amazingly easy to use! Write a song? No problem! Add background sound track to a video? No problem! Put notes on a staff and have BB make up a chord progression and tell what key you are in? No problem! Start with a chord progression and have BB make a melody line? No problem!"

"Still the best practice tool I have found, great for running lines, improvising over and really helpful for working on song writing ideas as well! Good for beginners, and the more musical skill and knowledge you have the more you will get out of the software."

"I create demo songs with Band-in-a-Box, it helps me to get my ideas across to my engineer!"

"Been using Band-in-a-Box for years. Outstanding product from a great company!"

"It's like buying a Musical History Jukebox. It comes with probably 3000 styles and is like hiring session musicians to play rhythm with you, they even have soloists! It introduces you to so many types of rhythms that you other wise would know nothing about. "

"Paul McCartney said you gotta have a great band behind you. Well, Band-in-a-Box is my band."

"It's as easy as typing in the chords, choosing your style, instruments, etc., and off you go! Learning the tune? You can slow it down while you work on it then speed it up. My favorite analogy is a good chess program, which will play at your speed and level and is eternally patient!"

"I love my Band in a box, it does so much! Besides all the RealTracks and song ideas, it's a great tool to stay sharp with your licks. Social distancing got you down? Can't jam with friends? Pick out any song and go to the mixer button, there you can mute any instrument that's playing so you can jump right in and play along!"

"I love it. I'm a drummer, and Band-in-a-Box really keeps me on my toes!"

"The DAW plugin is really great. Trust me on this. I use it with Studio One.

"This is how I've been able to gig solo for the past 20 years. Band-in-a-Box is the great equalizer for us none rhythm players."

"Wouldn't want to be without it! One of the best things I bought in my life. Simple as that."

"As a songwriter I really love to work with Band-in-a-Box. The only limitation is your own creativity."

"I've used Band-in-a-Box for 25 years and thanks to this program and the advice of PG Music staff I've written over 100 songs. It's great software and amazing help to me as a musician. CONGRATS!!!"

Thank you for all the amazing feedback!
