How about a little Chicago Style Blues?

In the first chorus, there's a Rave Synth pad in the b/g that we can not get rid of. We wiped the chord sheet clean and erased everything. redid the chord sheet and song generation...there it was again! We listened to each track individually and it doesn't appear in any if them. But when we play it back with any combination of tracks...there it is! It's a fabulous program but sometimes BIAB can do some pretty interesting stuff that's not planned or expected! So, please bear with us on that first chorus.

The music is 100% BIAB...I didn't add anything as far as playing an instrument. So, give a standing "O" to BIAB if you like it enough!

I Didn't Love Her No How

(v1)
I left her standing in a steady rain
A tainted woman crazy and insane
That's the last time I ever saw that gal
I didn't need her, I didn't love her no how

(v2)
No good at cooking, she wouldn't even clean
Not only that, she was down right brutal mean
She'd scare the devil, force him to stoop and bow
Thank God she's gone, I didn't love her no how

CHORUS
Nasty temper, bad attitude
Didn't want her then, don't want her now
She was an evil voodoo vixen
I didn't love her no how

(v3)
I tolerated all her selfish ways
For two long years and twenty-seven days
She was a heartache in a low-cut blouse
Good riddance trouble, I didn't love her no how

(v4)
I got my freedom, got no regrets
Ain't paying nothing but my self-inflicted debts
I hear she's looking, for a new cash cow
But that's her problem, I didn't love her no how

REPEAT CHORUS X2

(c) 2012 Alan D. David, BMI / Diana Bowers, BMI

Alan,

Nicely put together. (I did not even notice the pad). A number of interesting phrases in the lyric - particularly for a blues number..
A good mix. I actually thought it was just "a little too smooth" - that a little more "raunchy" in the rhythm guitars would be nice...

Enjoyed it.

I love alliterations and "voodoo vixen" is a keeper! In concert with what fj mentioned, yep, the lyric is certainly nuanced for a blues number and that really makes it standout. Every verse and the chorus has at least one goodie in it. No filler stuff here. Nice production too!

Hey, one of many things I've learned from Mr jane is that with some of the RT guitars you can check the "direct input" box and get a completely dry version of it. Then using whatever effects you have at your disposal you can as Tommy says "put some hair around the edges of the sound!" Forgive me if you use this. I just had not noticed the option until it was pointed out to me.

Al, You know I love the blues. Some great lines-"heartache in a low cut blouse" and "I got my freedom, got no regrets
Ain't paying nothing but my self-inflicted debts ". The mix is nice and wide. I also didn't notice the pad. She sounds like trouble but at least you got a good tune out of it. Tom

Hi Bud...Janice, too!

Thanks for the time to listen and comment...much appreciated! We're delighted the lyric is full of "good stuff" and "no filler". Thank you very much for that kind comment.

Alliterations and metaphors are powerful writing tools when used properly (I an author...have written several novels). So glad this one works for you.

And yes, I occasionally use the direct input, although I did not on this one. I'll go back and play around with that and see what I can do with the guitar tracks. Thanks again...

Al & Di

Hi Tommy...

Glad those lines worked for you. Actually, the lyric came pretty quickly...maybe four or five hours at the most. Sometimes the muse is kind and it works that way. She was nice to us on that day!

Yep, ya gotta watch dem Voodoo Vixens...they're tough gals! Thanks again for the kind words. Best to ya...

PG Music News
New with Band-in-a-Box® 2020 - MultiRiffs!

This feature was initially offered with the VST DAW Plugin, and now it's available directly in Band-in-a-Box®! MultiRiffs allows you to quickly generate 7 variations of either a portion of the track (which would generate 7 variations of "Riffs" of a four-bar guitar solo), or the whole song with 7 variations that are generated to play different material at all times.

Read all about this feature here, or check out our New Features Video (46:00) to see it in action!

#TipTuesday - The Band-in-a-Box® 2020 Feature Browser

Don't forget about the new Feature Browser added to Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac! (and Windows)

This feature is GREAT to help you locate a feature within the program!

How does it work? Access this feature by clicking on the [?] button on the main screen of the program or pressing the / Enter keys on the Chord Sheet. This dialog lists many features of the program and allows you to browse them, find the feature by text filter, read descriptions about the feature, find how to launch the feature, access to the online information or video about the feature, and do more.

Examples of a few situations where this feature is helpful:
-You know about a feature but don't know how to find it. Just type a part of the feature name and you'll see the hotkeys, menu, and toolbar info on how to launch it. For example, if you want to launch the Chord Builder but don’t know how to do it, type "builder" in the text filter, and you will quickly find the Chord Builder.
-You are exploring available features for Band-in-a-Box. For example, if you are a guitar player, type the word "guitar" and you'll see what's available.
-You prefer "one-stop-shopping" and would like to launch features from the same dialog.

Three years ago we were just rounding up our BETA testers to help finish up the testing of our Band-in-a-Box® 2017 for Mac!

With that version, we redesigned the main screen GUI, added support for popular .SFZ sound format as well as PG Music’s Hi-Q sounds (sforzando SFZ Synth.), added Natural Arrangements options and Hi-Q Guitar RealCharts, applied many, many, many enhancements to the existing powerful program features, and more!

Now, three years later, we're thrilled to say that we're already done BETA testing, and weeks into the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac release! Of course, that means we're having a SALE on Upgrade packages, but only until April 30th!
