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.

On top of the usual varieties we offer for Piano, Guitar, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet, Bass, Tuba, Trumpet, Trombone, and more - our RealTracks library also offers a nice selection of Shakuhachi and Kalimba - there's even a Koto RealTrack included in Set 212!

Review - Loops-with-Style PAK 2 for Band-in-a-Box® 2020

"Dr. Dave" Walker is at it again! You may remember his recent reviews of both Band-in-a-Box 2020 for Mac and Xtra Styles PAK 9 - now he has something to say about our Loops-with-Style PAK 2 - check it out: Click here to read...

With money being tight for most musicians, this is a wonderful gift for those on a limited budget. At $29, it offers months and years of fun and experimentation, bringing many ideas to fruition as songs with enough variation so that your audience doesn’t jump to "aw, that's a computer!" while still keeping the power of the software in your hands.
-"Dr. Dave" Walker

Thank you again Dr. Dave for the great review!
