Greetings Forum Friends,
I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
I'd like to post one more song this year. It's another one from the old songbook. I wrote this one with my old friend Frank back in 1975 when C&W and truckin' songs were all the rage.
I "matured" the lyrics a bit and took advantage of 30 years of technology (Thanks PG) and final recorded, "Baby, I Just Don't Know." For all of you out on the open road this weekend, I hope this toe-tapper makes the drive a bit more fun. Enjoy.

Here's the link
http://www.soundclick.com/player/single_player.cfm?songid=12983373&q=hi&newref=1
http://www.soundclick.com/dcspacedog

Here are the RTs etc.

Style is C_HONKIN.STY (Honkin - Country Rock)
RealDrums will be substituted :NashvilleEven8^6-a:Snare, HiHat , b:Snare, HiHat Open

Hi SD,

A toe-tapper indeed!
The banjo and pedal steel are very functional here and sound great.
Nice vocals too.

SpaceDog. Enjoyed this. I thought the background vocals were done well. It's been a lot of fun hearing this resurgence of country music on the forum.

Nice tune!! Melody is very cool and lyrics are simple but work great as well. Changes in the bridge are unusual but I think they work. I would make everything a bit wetter, particularly the vocals and drums. Great work! Take care. Greg

SD,

A good "drivin' song". They were, indeed, popular in that period.

Nice harmonies on this. The banjo and mandolin could come up a little in the mix... everything else sits nicely.

I agree with Floyd about the banjo and mandolin but otherwise I think that this is a winner.!

Great job on the lyrics and vocals also.

Nice tune. Loved the lyrics. Heard a little of one of our fellow Albertan's (Ian Tyson) in you vocal..

Mario,
Thanks. I'm glad you liked the lyrics. The original title was "Baby, I'll Let you Know" and the lyrics were rather arrogant. Much better now.

OK, Space Dog... this song requires a name change for you:
from now on you should go by the name "ROAD DAWG" ;-)

This song is a real departure from the ballads you usually present to the forum, but I gotta say... I LIKE this side of your playing! I'd like to hear more of this from you!

I thought it had a "live performance" feel more than a studio feel, and from my perspective that's a good thing. The way you merged the harmony to the melody is part of what gave it the live feel... most studio produced harmonies are a tad too perfect and programmed sounding. In your song there was just enough difference in when the two singers started and ended that it was like a band on stage playing the song in real time. I LIKE that sound!

Anyway, add my name to the list of people who enjoyed this one! I hope you're already working on the next one!

SD,

Wonderful vocals and harmonies.

Good change to the middle bit just before the solos.

I really enjoyed it, certainly had my foot tapping along

+1 , I agree with floyd. I liked the vocals. I would also add reverb to the vocals like Greg said. I enjoyed it. Tom

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows!

There are Notation Enhancements in the NEW Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows! These include:
•A new button in the Print Options dialog which lets you quickly print a "chords only" fake sheet. You can also access this from the right-click menu on the chord sheet.
•A new track type (Drums) is now 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 The line.)
•Double-clicking on the Standard mode Notation window (or on the time line in Editable or Staff Roll mode) plays the song from the current time location. Previously, it played the song from the beginning of the current bar.
•Holding down the [Ctrl] key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
•In The Notation Windows Options dialog, The clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
•Pressing The space bar plays the song from the current time location, not the current bar.
•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.
•There's a keystroke entry notation mode - the 'N' mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, up/down cursor to change its pitch, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
•You can now edit any track in the Event List Editor. When The dialog opens, it will show you the MIDI data in the current Notation track.
•You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
