I wrote this some time back and just added the new vocal track today. (9-6-13)

Traditional country & western more than anything else.

WHERE DOES A COWBOY GO?

http://soundclick.com/share.cfm?id=12487034

Back in the early days when I was playing in a Honky-Tonk band we often played the cowboy joints in town and I got to know some of those guys pretty well. This is for them. They know who they are......

Composed in BB... transferred to Real Band.... mixed in Sonar

Tracks
1. Vocal
2. Drums by RB
3. Acoustic: Hank strumming RB
4. Piano : muted
5. Fiddle by RB
6. Steel 1 by RB
7. Steel 2 by RB
8. Bass frozen synth using Cakewalk Sound Center sampled bass Ricko
9. Midi bass track by BB
10. Piano frozen syhtn using Cakewalk Sound Center Steinburg Grand
11. Midi piano track by BB

That's the story and I'm sticking to it.

Hey Herb,

Solid well written traditional country song with a touch of outlaw, big sound, and cool vocal.

Well done.

P.S. I do have one minor nit with the mix. It's noticeable on speakers and especially on my headphones that piano is too out front and distracting. Maybe it's just me. smile

Herb,

Nice. I found the piano distracting too, but more because of it's style - constantly hitting with the drum..

Everything about his songs works for me, especially the hook which is solid!

Nice job!

Hey, thanks all for listening and commenting.

Perhaps next week, when I have the time I will look into the nits. Thanks for your opinions on the mix and the song....

Happy trails to you.

FMM & Noel

Thanks for the listen and comments.

Quite a few people are commenting about the piano so..... Monday, I will set down and work on this.

I want to make some changes, so I will record a few new parts and make some level adjusts and some EQ adjusts and have the (hopefully) final finished version up late Monday. I'll let you all know when it is.

Thanks for the comments and feedback.

Where does the cowboy go? Heck, where did traditional country go? Thanks for the reminder of what it's about -- thematically, vocally and instrumentally.

Janice & Bud: thanks.... I was raised on that kind of music and it's very easy to write it.

Dani, Josie, Mac, Jo: thanks for listening. I'm glad you enjoyed it. I almost didn't post this tune..... I didn't really think it was quite "good enough" to post.

We're excited to say that all Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows UltraPAK and UltraPAK+ orders now ship on a USB 3.0 hard drive!

What does this mean? Faster hard drive transfer rates will enhance the program operations (faster time to generate tracks, reduced audio artifacts) and offer faster transfer speeds (typically up to 3x faster)!

It's a great time to order your UltraPAK or UltraPAK+ Upgrade... they're ON SALE until December 31st!

Band-in-a-Box® UltraPAK $469
Upgrade from Version 2018: [color:#FF0000]$149[/color] (reg: $279)

Video: Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows® New Features!

Our "Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows®! New Features, RealTracks, and other content!" video is now ready! Get to know all about the newest features in Band-in-a-Box® 2019: Click here to watch...

We have listed a table of contents for this video, you'll see it within the YouTube video description, or by visiting this forum post.

RealBand 2019 - A New Look!

Have you opened up your RealBand 2019 yet? You may notice that we've given it a fresh new look! In fact, there are now 3 different looks to RealBand.

See for yourself! Within the program, visit Options | Icon Set and choose from: Classic, Modern 1, or Modern 2.

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows - Choosing to Run 64-bit or 32-bit

We heard you! With the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows we've included the BRAND NEW 64-bit version of Band-in-a-Box®, which works well with the latest plugins and 64-bit OS features! Because not everyone has a 64-bit computer, we include both the 64-bit and 32-bit versions with your purchase - you choose which one to use!

By default, when you install your Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows the 32-bit version will run.

The steps to run the 64-bit version are simple! Just head to your "bb" folder and choose the "bbw64" icon - you'll notice that the Band-in-a-Box® "splash screen" will state "64-bit" as the program opens.
(and if you open the 32-bit version, the "splash screen" will state "32-bit")

Still not certain which version you're running? Within the program, go to Help | About Band-in-a-Box - it'll either state:

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2019 (604)
<--- the number in brackets is the build number - this will change as new patch updates are released
64 bit application

or:

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2019 (604)
<--- the number in brackets is the build number - this will change as new patch updates are released
32 bit application

We hope everyone who can is enjoying their Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit version for Windows!

NEW! Style-style-style Additions and Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows!

With over 64 new features and enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019, we've made sure to add to, enhance, and update some of the Style features within the program: StylePicker, StyleMaker, and Song Titles browser within the StylePicker!

StylePicker Enhancements:
-If the style list needs rebuild, it tells you that within the StylePicker, instead of a message that requires a response.
-The rebuild is faster than before by 75%. It takes 1/4 of the time now.
-While the style list is being rebuilt, you can see the progress inside the StylePicker.
-The style list can be filtered by a specific RealTracks/RealDrums/MIDI SuperTracks or RealTracks/MIDI SuperTracks in a certain number range.
-You can filter the style list by a specific Xtra Styles PAK.
-The dialog to select an Xtra Styles PAK has a button to take you to the PG Music website that shows information about Xtra Styles PAKs.
-The StylePicker can list all styles (including N/A styles) in the default display.
-The Set number display is improved, including sort by type and Xtra styles.

StyleMaker Improvements:

-The new MIDI velocity offset allows you to make styles with altered loudness for MIDI tracks.
-Styles can be saved with information like a memo, examples, genres, and more, which will be displayed in the StylePicker.
-You can import information from another style. This is useful when you are making a similar style.
-A style can have a huge number of RealTracks (up to 70!) because the StyleMaker now supports RealTracks multi/medley feature, which allows a single track to have up to 10 simultaneous playing of RealTracks.

Song Titles Browser Enhancement

-We’ve added 300 more song titles including requests from users, so there are now over 10,600 titles.
-The chord density filter is available, and it’s also displayed in the memo.
-The chord complexity filter is available.
