The wife isn't too happy with this one. Some people just don't have a sense of humor. Oh well, in the doghouse again. Uh oh sounds like another song title.

I played the Pedal Steel and the Telecaster lead and the vocals.

Tommy,

Another good one. Good old fashion Country. It's cool to hear someone actually playing the pedal steel.

Great work Tommy! A sentiment overdue in song! The production on this is very professional, and your playing is superb.

Classic country indeed. Great hook and man, how true. Re FB who wants to know every time somebody's baby pharts, or what store somebody just visited, or what grill they are at? "Get your face outa FB" is much much broader statement than just your song IMO.

As always your picking is great and the lyrics are clever, fun and have a cool message. The mix is great and the rhythm nails the classic country feel a la, Ernest Tubb, etc.

Hi Tommy,

Not my genre, but I like your guitar work.

All I can add is WOW!

This is pro all the way. Super lyrics, I love the breakfast-facebook lyric!

Great singing and harmonies, and I was super impressed with your pedal steel and Tele work!

You have just raised the country genre standard on the forum!

Floyd, Thanks for the comments, I always enjoy what you have to say.

John, Thanks for listening,I think Brad Paisley has a song called Facebook Friends, but I don't know of any others.

Bud, Thanks for your comments,Oops I think I just Pharted!

Guenter ,Thanks for giving country a chance, I've got some Blues in the pipeline.

Floyd, Thanks for your comment about the breakfast line-the whole song is built around that.

Mario, Thanks for listening, I always look forward to your comments.

Steve, I believe I rushed the playing a bit and hopefully I will get back and redo the parts. Thanks for the comments

Sundance, Thanks for your nice remarks.

Pat, TOO FUNNY. Got a good laugh out of that one - so did my dogs.

Great song.

I agree 100% on FB.... posting what you're cooking.... dang, it always looks like something the dog threw up onto the carpet.

I just decided this weekend to discontinue my FB account.... suspending in a few days. This morning I posted to that effect and if my "friends" wanted to keep in touch to PM me for other means of contact.....so far only one has responded.

I guess, If I haven't seen you in 20 years there IS a reason for that.

One nit on the song..... tune the guitar a bit better.

Love the song.

Tommy, the PSG sounds a lot like Jay McDonald's style. He played in The Buckaroos in the very early days of Buck Owens. I don't know what happened to Jay.

I liked your song.

PowerTracks Pro Audio 2019 Build 2 Update Available!

PowerTracks Pro Audio 2019 users can download the FREE Build 2 patch update here

Summary of Changes in Build 2:
Fixed: Sometimes the position of the VST/DX plugs window (even if not visible) would prevent a drop, such as into the drop station, from occurring.
Fixed: When batch converting files, the volume of some file types such as wav/mp3/wma/mp4, etc. would be too low.
Fixed: In Chords Window, you could not enter held chords on Piano track.
Fixed: LeadSheet might not display tied notes on the last bar of a track.
Fixed: Pressing "M" key in Editable Notation to insert a new note at the current time location on the Staff was inserting a duplicate note rather than inserting it above an existing note.
Fixed: Loading in a MusicXML file could result in MIDI notes of zero instead of the currect MIDI notes.
Fixed: Dragging a file into the tracks window didn't always result in the effects slot for the track being setup properly for the file type dragged in.
Fixed: When inserting hard rest, and answering Yes to question about removing notes for the peg, it would remove notes from both clefs instead of the clef that the rest was inserted on.
Fixed: Potential access violation when deleting a note in staff window.
Fixed: Potential jukebox access violation if there were songs with the entire path of the filename being 256 characters or greater loaded into jukebox.
Fixed: Jukebox not playing the playlist in correct order in certain situations involving stopping/restarting, etc.
Fixed: When loading in a MusicXML file that has a specific guitar fretboard defined that matches one of our fretboards, the guitar tablature type will now be set for the notation.
Fixed: Ability to load in .MXL (compresssed musicXML file) as well as ability to load normal noncompressed musicXML file with the new .musicxml extension instead of just .XML.
Fixed: Hammer ons, pull offs, and slides are now being saved to MusicXML files.
Fixed: Exceptionally jittery timing indicator in the notation window during playback compared to older versions of RealBand.
Fixed: If the start of a generated section of a song didn't have a chord entered at the beginning of the section, then it could default to a C major chord instead of the most recent chord prior to the section.
Fixed: Potential access violation if song has micro-pegs and multiple notes on a peg.
Fixed: Accidental element that specified whether a note was displayed as sharp/flat wasn't eing saved to XML, even though the correct pitch of the note itself was saved.

RealBand 2019 Build 5 Update Available!

All RealBand 2019 for Windows customers can download the latest FREE patch update (build 5) here.

Summary of Changes in Build 5 (Oct 10)
Fixed: Sometimes the position of the VST/DX plugs window (even if not visible) would prevent a drop, such as into the drop station, from occurring.
Fixed: When batch converting files, the volume of some file types such as wav/mp3/wma/mp4, etc. would be too low.
Fixed: In Chords Window, you could not enter held chords on Piano track.
Fixed: LeadSheet might not display tied notes on the last bar of a track.

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit for macOS Catalina

With Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit for Mac we added Drum Notation Support, and we didn't stop there! Other Notation Enhancements added in this new version are:

-A new track type (Drums) is available for the Melody and Soloist tracks.
-Clicking close to a stave line will put a note on the stave line instead of between stave lines. Previously, you had to click extremely close to a stave line to insert a note on it.
-Holding down the control key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
-In the Notation Window Options dialog, the clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
-Notation is much clearer, not jagged, on retina screens.
-The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
-The right-click menu in the Editable or Staff Roll mode Notation window has an option to change the current beat resolution. Previously, the only way to do this was to right-click on the time line.
-There is a keystroke entry mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, M to enter a third note, up/down cursor to change the pitch of the highlighted note, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
-You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
