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.

PG Music News
Customers LOVE Band-in-a-Box® 2021!

Check out some of the latest Band-in-a-Box® feedback we've received:

"There's a saying 'Give a man a fish, feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, feed him for a lifetime.' That's exactly what my friend did in 1990. He taught me how to use BIAB and I've used it hundreds of time to do arraignment and to jam with any style band."

"Love BIAB. I use it daily. Their support is great too!"

"RealTracks are amazing!!! I use BIAB for backtracks in my solo act... Still using the basic package and it's all need..."

"I have used Band in A Box for many years. If it would have been around when I was young, I would have been a much better musician. I use it for all my songs I have written and recorded. With Band In A Box I can sit in my room and sound like a whole band without having to put up with them!"

"If you know something about music and take the time to learn the program, you can make it do some amazing things. It is a great help to songwriters who want to demo their song without paying for studio time. It makes changes and tweaks much easier as well."

"Been using it for so many years. It's a great tool. The instruments that I don't have or play make up the void and it saves so much time. I use this program for every song I write."

"Great tool for the songwriter!"

"An essential part of my studio! I write songs on piano, but I'm not a pianist by a long way. BIAB is like having a roomful of session players in your studio, and just the simple act of taking your basic idea and hearing a skilled pianist play it presents so many new ideas and options you hadn't thought of."

"Powerful, easy to use, inexpensive and they even split the modest payments up if you want. No complaints. Lots of satisfaction."

"I added a steel guitar to a fully produced original. He followed every change like he was in the studio reading the chart. Fascinating technology!"

"I have used it to make backing tracks for six CD's with about 12 songs on each. They make a great gift!"

"It's simply a necessity - buy it now - the staff and support do a great job as well!"

"A great tool for us songwriters!"

"I LOVE Band-in-a-Box!"

"I see it as a very worthwhile investment. In fact, from initial purchase about 8 years ago, using the backing tracks I have made, my income from that investment has returned over 5,000% on the investment!"

Band-in-a-Box® - Boxing Clever - Sound on Sound #TBT

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® is more than 30 years old? I stumbled across this 1990 magazine article explaining the relatively new program, and think it's an enjoyable read for any Band-in-a-Box user - it really shows that we are always listening to user feedback when developing our program!

Read the article: Boxing Clever: Band-In-A-Box Software

A few of my favorite statements:

"The intention of PG Music's Band-In-A-Box package is to couple that speed and convenience with the improved flexibility of the personal computer. Versions are available for the Atari ST, Mac, and PC compatibles. Have the programmers succeeded? And can they rid themselves of the stigma of the auto-accompaniment section? Given the above state of affairs, the first hurdle that the program has to overcome is one of acceptance and, frankly, a name like 'Band-In-A-Box' is a bad start."

(I think our name was a great start!)

"The final results are, to say the least, impressive. Band-In-A-Box achieves something that most hardwired auto-accompaniment sections have never been able to do - inject a degree of feel into the music. It really does sound more human than so many of the computer generated pieces I've heard."

"...I'm quite convinced that PG Music will have a winner on their hands. This is one piece of software that you can get more out of than you put in."
