Thanks to Josie who was listening to my tracks over at Reverbnation, she reminded me of a total BIAB tune that I did which is a remix of an acoustic tune I do live. I wrote the song just because. People kept saying my tunes were dark so I figured I'd lighten it up and wrote "Big Wad o Gum"

388 Bass Electric Metal
629 Guitar Electric Rhythm PopAmericanDirty
RealDrums=NashvilleEven8^6
632 Guitar, Electric Rhythm PopAmericanMuted
406 Guitar Acoustic, Strumming
422 Guitar, Electric Soloist, Blues

Again, I sliced up the Soloist Blues Track to create a solo better suited to the feel of the tune (more space and dynamics) Created a few new chops as well smile

Enjoy!

I guess one can find inspiration for a song in anything.....

funny song and a reminder to dispose of your gum properly, and that doesn't mean spitting it out in a parking lot on a hot day.


Musically, the vocals sound really good. The tempo seems a bit too fast for the guitar solo style that you used.

Slow it down, change the style to blues and sing about that nasty wad stuck to your foot.....

Funny write!

A good vocal and good overall mix with a bunch of good solo licks throughout.

Funny and clever. Good job on the splicing. I know how tedious that it is. Often takes me parts of 12-15 regens to get it "right."

The vocal really works and is well featured on the tune. I can hear it wafting through the air in a Wally Mart parking lot. smile

Thanks for the thoughts!

I laughed when I first read your post. This tune IS slowed down ;-D But, your point is well taken.

Thanks again for the input!

Hi Greg! Interesting story: One time after a gig, while breaking down, a gentleman came up to me and began to praise "Big Wad O Gum" as a profound, deep song, and how it meant so much to him. He was serious as well. He was talking about symbolism and more. Not dark, but, definitely something more than what I intended. ;-)

Appreciate the thoughts!

Sounds like something Talking Heads would do and even the vocals are in a similar style. I enjoyed that.
good fun song,

Hey Mike,

Is there anyone who can't relate to this? I doubt it! Funny and entertaining. That bass line just kept driving this one home! Nicer work!!!!

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.
