Song title " Rattlesnakes And Roadrunners" Progressive Country is what I call my style. I love love classic country, but my roots are Prog Rock (Canadian LOL!!)...so my style is always a bit of a cross-pollination.
** Guitar driven instrumental, possibly the least favorite type of music on a forum like this LOL! **

http://soundcloud.com/texasheartrush/rattlesnakes-and-roadrunners

New CD due out August. This is just a demo clip recorded with one Tele. Sometimes 'demos' take on a life of their own! LOL!!

Yes, I do sing, but not on this track. This is instrumental demo version.
Once the album tracks are done, I cant post here because I wont be using 'Real Tracks'. LOL!

Real Tracks: Oh Goodness. Utterly Fantastic and indispensable writing tools. I am grateful. Honestly these were so cut/pasted, tweaked, stretched, enhanced, multed etc I have no idea what is left of the original ideas. This is what my original 'idea' song says.

Main Drums RealDrums in Song: PopAmericanEv^1-a:SdStkHB, b:SNHB
Fiddle RealTracks in song: 2032:Fiddle, Soloist CountryAndy Ev 165
Banjo RealTracks in song: 623:Banjo, Background Backporch Ev 098

All other tracks recorded here.
Guitars
Bass
Violin
Bells

All of the 'Real Tracks' are currently being redone by...well, 'Actual Real Tracks' LOL!

Thanks for listening and I hope you enjoy!

Cool use of realtracks. I enjoy cutting, dicing and splicing. Sorta gives you true "ownership" of the tracks. Thanks for posting.

Hi Rodney,

great guitar and excellent use of the realtracks.
It's a pity you are going to redo them all.

Pat, Kevin, Janice and Bud, Noel many thanks for listening and the good words!! Appreciate it.
My apologies for not supporting you all as much, I just don't have the time I want to listen and post here although I use RT and BIAB for so many things. I hope to get back here soon!

Floyd, thanks for the shout-out! Look forward to your next posting...probably has some great guitar playing on it! Haha!!LOL!

Guenter, thank you. It is never a pity to get the quality tracks you want. I love RTS but for 'organic' music often the artifacts on some RTS are too great and the playing is too 'pre-determined' for my vision. For basic writing it is superb. There is only basic stuff here anyway. The Banjo I can play myself more suitably and violin/fiddle is something I am happy to pay to support another musicians career to play. Its all good~! smile

Dani...Thank you! Yes. My pet rattlesnake makes an appearance on this cut. He plays the shaker! laugh

Bob, thank you! That is generous to say! Its really pretty simple grooves overall. I do have a couple of barn burners I look forward to sharing at some point.

Have a great week everyone!

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!
