Hi folks,

Some time ago there was an interesting discussion in the off-topic forum that all country songs these days seem to be about drinking, my truck, my tractor, so having fallen into the trap, here is another little country/folksy song about drinking smile

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WzF5X0g5Br4

The galtymore was a mainly irish dancehall in London Uk but has been closed now for a few years.

Craic (pronounced crack) is an Irish expression meaning fun, nothing to do with drugs....lol

Midi Style is C_BUCK.STY (Country Buck style)
Style MIDI Instruments are : Finger Electric Bass (34), Acoustic Piano (1), Acoustic Guitar (26), Clean Electric Guit (28),


The accordion part was notated
Any comments welcome.

Thanks
musiclover

Excellent.
That brought back many memories, some I'd prefer to forget blush of my time in London 1967-80. I forget most of the names of the Irish bars/ clubs we drank in as we too enjoyed the craic, not so much the next morning but we definitely enjoyed the night!!!
Craic is part of my vocabulary now but I'd forgotten how it was spelt!!!!

Really enjoyed the trip down memory lane,

Alyn

Thanks very much Charlie, Pg, and Alan & Di for taking the time to listen and your nice comments.

Still trying to improve and taking tips from all you pro's here.

Just got myself a used pair of studio monitors behringer truth b2030a today, I hope that it might improve my ability to mix, here's hoping anyway.

Thanks again.

Musiclover you did the Irish proud with this one. Everything about this was super.

PS - I have a wee bit if Irish in me, not much though, just enough to like the music and beer cool


Me, it's not about how many times you fail, it's about how many times you get back up.
Cop, that's not how field sobriety tests work.

Hi Musiclover,
Nice folky song. We were wondering... are the drums also midi, 'cause they sound more like real drums. If so, which one did you use?
Regards,
R & AM

Thanks very much Mario, JosieC, Sundance,Noel, R@AM and Janice and Bud for your kind encouragement.

It is very much appreciated particularly in view of the fact that due to family commitments I do not get enough time go on the user forum myself and post about all the great music here.

I do feel guilty about asking people to listem to my song while not posting a lot myself on user forum. I hope you will forgive me.

R@AM the realdrums are,
NashvilleSwing8^5-a:Sidestick, HiHat , b:Snare, HiHat.

Many thanks to all, I have a long way to go in terms of mixing and trying to get it up to studio quality like a lot of songs on here are at.

The Band-in-a-Box® Flash Drive Backup Option

Today (April 5) is National Flash Drive Day!

Did you know... not only can you download your Band-in-a-Box® Pro, MegaPAK, or PlusPAK purchase - you can also choose to add a flash drive backup copy with the installation files for only $15? It even comes with a Band-in-a-Box® keychain!

For the larger Band-in-a-Box® packages (UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, Audiophile Edition), the hard drive backup copy is available for only $25. This will include a preinstalled and ready to use program, along with your installation files.

Backup copies are offered during the checkout process on our website.

Already purchased your e-delivery version, and now you wish you had a backup copy? It's not too late! If your purchase was for the current version of Band-in-a-Box®, you can still reach out to our team directly to place your backup copy order!

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first? If your flash drive (or other USB plug) doesn't have a symbol to indicate which way is up, look for the side with a seam on the metal connector (it only has a line across one side) - that's the side that either faces down or to the left, depending on your port placement.

Band-in-a-Box® 2024 Review: 4.75 out of 5 Stars!

If you're looking for a in-depth review of the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows version, you'll definitely find it with Sound-Guy's latest review, Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows Review: Incredible new capabilities to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs.

A few excerpts:
"The Tracks view is possibly the single most powerful addition in 2024 and opens up a new way to edit and generate accompaniments. Combined with the new MultiPicker Library Window, it makes BIAB nearly perfect as an 'intelligent' composer/arranger program."

"MIDI SuperTracks partial generation showing six variations – each time the section is generated it can be instantly auditioned, re-generated or backed out to a previous generation – and you can do this with any track type. This is MAJOR! This takes musical experimentation and honing an arrangement to a new level, and faster than ever."

"Band in a Box continues to be an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs, as well as an extensive educational resource. It is huge, with hundreds of functions, more than any one person is likely to ever use. Yet, so is any DAW that I have used. BIAB can do some things that no DAW does, and this year BIAB has more DAW-like functions than ever."
