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.

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.
