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
RT 620 Pedal Steel, background Cowboy ev 165
RT 405 Guitar Accoustic Strumming ev 120
RT 520 Bass, Electric Pop Half notes ev 165
RT 436 Mandolin soloist Bluegrass ev 130
RT 433 Banjo soloist Bluegrass ev 130

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.

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

Fixed: In Chords Window, you could not enter held chords on Piano track.
Fixed: LeadSheet might not display tied notes on the last bar of a track.
Fixed: Pressing "M" key in Editable Notation to insert a new note at the current time location on the Staff was inserting a duplicate note rather than inserting it above an existing note.
Fixed: Loading in a MusicXML file could result in MIDI notes of zero instead of the currect MIDI notes.
Fixed: Dragging a file into the tracks window didn't always result in the effects slot for the track being setup properly for the file type dragged in.
Fixed: When inserting hard rest, and answering Yes to question about removing notes for the peg, it would remove notes from both clefs instead of the clef that the rest was inserted on.
Fixed: Potential access violation when deleting a note in staff window.

Fixed: Accidental element that specified whether a note was displayed as sharp/flat wasn't eing saved to XML, even though the correct pitch of the note itself was saved.
