Just a little bit of Christmas music for the season. I recorded this last year.(2012) I like this song and have done several versions through the years, and this one is a bit on the harder side of the fence. I'm handling all the guitars and piano chores in this. It was recorded in my humble home studio. The guitars start with my Tele and switch a bit on to my SG as the need for "fat sound" increases at the 2 minute mark.

Hope you enjoy. I'll be digging out a few old tunes and dusting them off in the days following.

The tracks and style: LA Hard Rock I'd have to go back to the project to look up the exact tracks.... Bass, Drums, and probably a B3 from BB/RT defaulted to the style. Then, if I recall, about 6 tracks of guitar and one piano which I played.

enjoy.

Herb,

An interesting alternative sound to that. Kinda spaghetti-western-Christmas. Good mix. - floyd

Hi Herb

What a neat version of this song. I first remember playing this song when I was about 8 on a recorder.. Excellent playing

Hi Herb
Quite different and reminded me of the "covers" that groups / bands of the 60's did of Classics.
I thought it was great version.
The SG sounded good and Hot but I thought that you could have wound your Tele up to give a smokin' tone too. LOVED TO BITS the high register harmony in the "SG" section.
Brilliant!
cheers
ian

Hi Herb,

a nice version.
I like your guitar sound and the 'harmony'.

Love this tune and the Spanish/Mexican? feel. Would maybe like a bit nastier bass sound.

Herb, This is played and arranged with great skill. It sounds great. The stereo spread is perfect and the levels are just right. It does have that western vibe and you can be proud of your rendition. Very unique. Two thumbs up. Tom

Hey everybody, thanks for listening.

I'm glad you like this. I have recorded this a number of times, everything from what you hear in this to totally acoustic with hammered dulcimer and mandolins..... this is such a great song.

Couldn't agree more. Loved the tones and how cool were those harmonies....

Yeah... Thanks.... I can and do listen to this one all year long on my mp3 player. I'm thinking the only way I could make this better would be to add COWBELL to it. (grin wink wink)

Cool. Loved the guitar and the harmony. That was on our set list for years. Had a very melodic banjo player who could really work it -- odd as that might sound smile

Wow! That's stunning.

The only thing it lacks is some Herp Albert trumpet!

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Herb, this is beautifully arranged, played and engineered! Fantastic stuff, I really liked it and it's Morricone flavour. Super guitar harmonies also.
The drums are a bit low in the mix, but that's just me perhaps.

PG Music News
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."
