Strap your socks on for this one!

I wrote this song as an acoustic guitar/vocal folk song and in the second person. And yes I was eating crayfish at the time.

Just Happy (3-9-2011)

I was hatched down in a crawdad hole
I eat mashed potatoes from a wrought iron bowl
facebook says I ain't got no friends
I trade the one in the bush for the two in my hand

but I got no flies in my kitchen
and I got no pot o’ gold
I dance like a frog with two left fins
and --- I’m happy just growin’ old

I drink my beer from an eight ounce glass
I got a finger in my nose and I got no class
I smoke cheap cigarettes just because I can
I only call you up when I need a hand

well my britches need a stitchin
cause I scratches where I’m itching
so I only go out when the fog is dense
but my dog keeps jumping my back fence

Hey!

Strapped in and enjoying the ride! Sounds like a sweet mix of Heavy Metal and Southern Rock. Whatever it is...it works great! Still trying to stop my leg from bouncing around. And I'm dancing in my chair...not a pretty sight, trust me!

That was a lot of fun!. Totally loved the ending, not just the chord but the echo of the guitars. Also, the harmony of the guitars on right and left was more than sweet! Great job!

Al & Di

Hi Lawrence!

Like Al and Di, I'm on the roller-coaster ride, too. This one sounds like it was a heck of a lot of fun getting together! Some really really great imagery in here. Each line's a story in itself! Amazing stuff.

Regards,
Noel

Pretty amazing set of lyrics
Heavy? Yeah

Lawrence,

You Punk, you! 100 miles an hour straight ahead headbanger punk rock. I'm bouncing around the room.

"..dance like a frog with two left fins"... funny - are we doing a theme?

Good mix. The vocal sits in it perfectly.

Fun song. Well done.

floyd

Hi Lawrence,

if that sounds like growing old then everybody
should do so with delight.
Totally fun all way through.
You did a great job on this one.

Al-Di, C is the default key and when I transposed the song to E, BIAB left the C chord in the ending. So I just left it in. Happy mistake!




Noel96, When I decided to go metal/punk it was a blast to go all out. And those lyrics were fun to write!



VideoTrack, I had been wanting to do a drum intro for some time. This was the perfect vehicle!




floyd jane, it was a blast to mix. Just before the third verse there are 7 screaming electric guitars! plus bass, drum, and B3!



tommyad, definitely one to crank up to 11!




Guenter, when I auditioned this style for these lyrics I did it for a laugh, but it didn't take me long to realize it was perfect.




big741, glad to help you start your day with a bang!

Man, that is too cool! Kinda a Robert Earl Keen sits in with a rock band vibe. Sounds like it was a fun project. There's nothing about it that didn't make the two of us smile. And, as usual, a combo of lyric, vocal, RT's and mix. Much fun.

Video: Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows® New Features!

Our "Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows®! New Features, RealTracks, and other content!" video is now ready! Get to know all about the newest features in Band-in-a-Box® 2019: Click here to watch...

We have listed a table of contents for this video, you'll see it within the YouTube video description, or by visiting this forum post.

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.
