I like it.

Nice sounding steel.


Nice job on the writing of the lyrics. Joe Walsh don't wear a cowboy hat... made me smile.

Nice job on the editing, even if you did use Logic.... (smirkey smile)

Ain't that the truth?...(listening to the lyrics and commenting) .

Nice chorus.

Having to listen again... yeah I like it that much.


This is my kind of song.... I would have loved collaborating on this..... but alas.... you did a fine job on it.

Another good "country music just ain't country music anymore" song.

Tommy,

Good write. Several good lines in this one. As usual, I like your arrangement and mix. Two thumbs up!

Country music isn't my genre of choice... I LIKE the fact that Joe Walsh doesn't wear a cowboy hat... but I understand all the points you have made so well in this song.

You really have a wide base of talent to draw from... especially your ability to turn a phrase! All of your songs have been peppered with interesting catch-phrases. And your musicianship is highly respectable too. Good job on everything you've posted to the forum, especially this one since it's the current topic.

I agree, it's a shame they don't play the old stuff anymore. YouTube has tons of old performances. I no longer listen to radio. Good job, keep writing!

Good performance, arrangement and some lines in there made me chuckle.

But I have to admit I like lots of the "new" country too. <grin>

Tom,

A good write. Good vocal, good mix. Hopefully, real country isn't dead - just taking a breather - an will cycle back around one of these days...

Yeah... I knew that....

I really loved the Eagles early stuff, their later stuff isn't bad either.

Yep, Keith Whitley, Ricky Skaggs, George Strait, Alan Jackson and Randy Travis bailed out country from the schlock in the early 80's but, man, has it gone down the tubes since. Here's hoping. For all the reasons already stated I really like this tune! Best one of this theme since "Murder on Music Row." Thanks for the chance to listen!!

Joanne, Thanks for listening and commenting.

Herb, I got a BIG laugh out of that picture. Just to be clear - I love the Eagles- Watched the new documentary three times.

Steve, Thanks for weighing in. I always look forward to your comments.

Pat , Your comments really touched me. A BIG thanks.

Robb, I also watch youtube for the old clips. Thanks for listening and commenting.

Sundance, Glad I made you smile. With a screen name like that you should.

Floyd, Real county is still here. Just go to Texas. Thanks for the comments.

Janice & Bud, I am a big fan of yours, thanks for listening. I did think of Murder on Music Row during this write.

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.

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.
