First of all I would like to apologize to all of you whose songs I missed. The last couple of months life has gotten in the way of my participation. Hopefully y'all understand how that can happen. So I will jump back

in and plan to stay awhile. These lyrics were inspired by a quote from the Portuguese motivational speaker Jose Micard Teixeria. Just something I ran across. It struck a chord with me so to speak. ROCK ON!

I Can't Lie

I no longer have any patience for certain things

Not because I am arrogant it just an awakening

I reached a point in my life where I can’t waste any time

be negative or critical or anything along those lines


I’ve lost the will to please those who don’t like me

And smile at those that don’t smile back or act with civility

i cannot coexist with those that lie and cheat

I don’t have to tolerate blatant dishonesty

i can’t lie I can’t lie I can’t lie to myself anymore



i won’t waste one more minute on those that manipulate

Academic arrogance is another thing that I hate

People who are rigid and inflexible who fail to compromise

Who are cynical and make demands have fallen in my eyes


I’ve lost the will to please those who don’t like me

And smile at those that don’t smile back or act with civility

i cannot coexist with those that lie and cheat

I don’t have to tolerate blatant dishonesty

i can’t lie I can’t lie I can’t lie to myself anymore

Hi Tommy.

Loved it.

I listened on the 'phones at first, but soon realised that this was a track which needed to be played LOUD on the main monitors. A great rock track and even more of a treat because we don't get so much of this stuff on the showcase.

Just wonderful from the start to the great ending.

Welcome back Tom and, wow, what a re-entry!!
That is an exceptional rocker in ALL aspects.

The lyric is perfect and speaks to a point that
many of us reach in life. I GET it. And, man,
that guitar is cookin' and hittin' the note as
Gregg says.

Then we have an arrangement and mix that
support your vocal so well. EVERYTHING
works and works well.

J&L, Glad to be back and thanks. It's great to hear some kind words after the rough couple of months I've had. I had a feeling some of us would be able to relate to the content. Tom

Really great song! Your vocals really shine on this one. Really like the guitar, too. Glad I got to hear this one.

I love this Tom!! The music and arrangement (and of course the guitar) are great. But, what I like the most is the lyrics. We're probably in the same age range (45 to 60) and I love the idea of being unwilling to play the game and put up with the crap. Sometimes my attitude gets me in trouble but I feel like sometimes you just got to let it out. I can't wait until I'm retired (have my FU money)--then people will really hear from me. I admire old people who don't have to apologize for speaking their mind. I like the lyric about "academics". I live in a town full of them, and they can be the most narrow minded people in the world. I could go on and on, BUT my point is clear--Great song!! Take care. Greg

Tom,

Good write! Mighty thought-provoking for a hard rocker!

"i can’t lie I can’t lie I can’t lie to myself anymore"

I really like how you came into your hook from one angle and finished it with another... Interesting from start to finish.

Love the production. I am not sure we have heard this type of a rocker done before. And, SO well done it is! It is always good to see (hear) someone take BIAB to a new place, a new level... to show one more thing that it can do in the right hands... You captured that sound perfectly.

Your vocal is strong. I would have liked to hear more reverb (a "dark" one?) on it (a personal choice, of course). The piano sort of "peeked out" a couple of times - would have liked to hear more of that, too (just me, you know - I like a strong piano...)

Super enjoyable. Listened a bunch of times - that guitar combination is still pounding in my head.

Great to have you back.

floyd

Greg, I think a lot of people feel this way. We make compromises our whole life till we reach a point where we say enough is enough. Everytime I look at retiring it seems to be just out of my reach. Hopefully someday. Thanks for all your support. Tom

Nice nice nice rocker .....

I like this. Nice lyric writing too.... I feel the same way for the most part.....I don;t have the time for dealing with idiots and arguing points with them. I shake my head and walk away most of the time.

Mix sounded good. I'd liked to have heard the final mix more of a stadium rock sound.... but that's just a personal thought.

The tracks all sound good..... guitars are nice and crunchy just like I like-um..... I could feel the heat off the rhythm guitar amp's tubes.... and your lead solo was spot on for the genre. (perhaps a tad more reverb)

Nice energy through out... yeah I like this.

Hi Tommy,

Good to see you back on the forum.

A really good rock song! Like the lyrics too!
I like rock very much and this one made feel like singing along.
As far as I'm concerned you might even "shout it out" a bit more here and there, e.g. at the end of the last 2 sentences of a verse.
Thanks for posting.

floyd

floyd, Glad you liked it. The vocal was purposely lacking any reverb. Just a little snapback delay and lot's of saturation. Some of the rock things I have been listening to have had no reverb, so I thought I'd give it a try. It's way better than my first version which sounded like a monster in a cave. I made a bet with myself that you would say- more piano. I won! Seriously when I turned it up it clogged up the mix and I wanted a guitar driven sound anyway so I thought the peeking worked OK. It's kind of a ghost effect like the high unison vocal. Just barely there. Thanks for sharing your observations. I always learn something. Tom

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit for macOS Catalina

With Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit for Mac we added Drum Notation Support, and we didn't stop there! Other Notation Enhancements added in this new version are:

-A new track type (Drums) is available for the Melody and Soloist tracks.
-Clicking close to a stave line will put a note on the stave line instead of between stave lines. Previously, you had to click extremely close to a stave line to insert a note on it.
-Holding down the control key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
-In the Notation Window Options dialog, the clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
-Notation is much clearer, not jagged, on retina screens.
-The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
-The right-click menu in the Editable or Staff Roll mode Notation window has an option to change the current beat resolution. Previously, the only way to do this was to right-click on the time line.
