This one is for Lindy. Hope you enjoy it. Any comments or suggestions welcome.
Too much fiddle perhaps?

Footprints in the rain

She came to the mountain by the Whangapeka valley
Seeking words of wisdom from wise seers
I ferried her from town in my old Bedford van
She had a special air that I could breathe

She was taken that I knew but all I liked to do
Was sit beside her in the still night air
She questioned words of wisdom with bright new eyes of wonder
And that wonder filled the space between the stars

How I missed her on the mountain and times triumphant wheel
Held my tongue as she moved on won't see her like a-gain
Rocky ranges all know what I feel

on lifes lilting stage she played a banjo with her beau
Standing firm eyes locked before the crowd
To nourish and sup-port she'd back his melo-dy
A tiny smile en-hanced their vibrant song

How I missed her on the mountain and times triumphant wheel
Held my tongue as she moved on won't see her like a-gain
Rocky ranges all know what I feel

The winter winds and snowy medi-tations cleared my head
At night I'd hear the clatter of small stones
Rolling down the river like crazy rattling bones
I knew the time was ripe for moving on

How I missed her on the mountain and times triumphant wheel
Held my tongue as she moved on won't see her like a-gain
Rocky ranges all know what I feel
And footprints vanish slowly in the rain
Footprints vanish slowly in the rain

The lyrics on this one are outstanding. Love "times triumphant wheel". Dont know what it means but know that I love it. That buzzy bass is something else. Had to fiddle around with my headphones to make sure they were plugged in properly! You certainly come up with the most amazing stuff.

Edited to add: I find your style very inspiring. It encourages me to be be more outgoing with my songwriting

As always, an interesting listen! Some great lyrical images. The music works for me but I would cut the sustained synth bass as it sounds staticy. Good work! Take care. Greg

"The winter winds and snowy meditations cleared my head
At night I'd hear the clatter of small stones
Rolling down the river like crazy rattling bones
I knew the time was ripe for moving on"

I want to write lines like this when I grow up!

Another fine lyrical production from your amazingly consistent output. We much enjoyed it!!

Hi Josie. I was caretaker at a meditation center at the time and had vaguely in mind the wheel of the dharma. And I do feel a little exposed with some songs. But what the hell. I've nothing to lose. Feel extremely flattered by your edit. Cheers.

Thanks for the comments Greg. The fiddle was to represent the female energy and the bass the male. Maybe a bit overdid. Cheers.

Thanks Bud and Janice. You give me a buzz. Cheers.

Thanks Guenter. Good to hear you liked it. Cheers.

I LIKE THIS SONG! It's a lot more peppy than I thought it would be from reading the words. You don't hear many songs where the message is it's nice to be in someone's presence. It's a nice experience everyone has had but nobody ever mentions. You are very creative in your instrument choices but they work. I like how you added the banjo during the verse of her playing a banjo.

Thanks Dani. It was a bittersweet experience but one I wouldn't have missed for anything. Cheers.

Thanks Jim for listening and for your extremely supportive comments. Have met a few but not to many people I was content just to be with. Nothing to give nothing to receive just to be there. Delighted that you think the instruments work ok. Cheers.

Rich,

I had to chime in and comment on your lyrics... they contain so many interesting phrases, I won't even try to single any of them out for analysis... but I will say that the way you express ideas resonates with me.

I liked the lyrics, the backing tracks and vocals.

I do think that I would have liked it much better with a different bass sound. That distorted buzzy bass just didn't do it for me, but that is just my opinion and others will probably not agree!

This is a very original, clever and interesting song, great job on that.

Thanks Mario for the honest opinion. It's much appreciated. I think others will agree with you. Don't know why I like that bass so much but i do. In the car with it up loud the fillings almost rattle out of my teeth. Cheers.

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.
