Here is a tune I wrote that I recorded with Dan Lippert on harmonica and Dale Jernberg on harmony vocal. I used John Jarvis RT on piano, along with RT's on bass, and drums. I added guitar and lead vocal.

Hi Fred,

I've enjoyed hearing some of your folk songs. No Second Chance is a different type of tune for you and a nice change of pace.

Great work all around. Nice lyrics, nice singing, etc.

It took a while for my ears to get used to the wide pan of the instruments - guitar in one ear, piano in the other. And a bit too much ride for my ears...

Hey, I've got to complain about something. These polished songs set the bar too darned high for mortals like me! wink

Thanks for posting - I liked it a lot!

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Nice lay back country feel. Harmonica fills work nice, and good lyrics.

cool groove in this one. loved the harp and the vocals. one issue to me is it seems a bit cluttered over all. A problem i seem to develop on most of my projects.

Hi Fred,

I listened to your song, and the great JJ Cale passed in front of me, alive and well!!!

Need to say that I loved it.

Productionwise the standard on this forum is so high I'm feeling quite small.

Loved it!

I have been so busy I forgot to look at the comments until today. Thanks for listening and the positive comments. I do have to watch the ride cymbals in RDs!! Rides eat up the high end of the mix.

I have recorded two songs this week for a 14-song album. I love having BIAB for my rhythm section. I did find a pedal steel part that works well, as well as a banjo.

Hi Fred,

A hearty congratulations to you, Dan and Dale. This sounds terrific. The panning is unusual but it worked for me on my speakers.

Extremely well assembled and musicianship shines everywhere.

All the best,
Noel

Fixed: Sometimes the position of the VST/DX plugs window (even if not visible) would prevent a drop, such as into the drop station, from occurring.

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: Potential access violation when deleting a note in staff window.

Fixed: Jukebox not playing the playlist in correct order in certain situations involving stopping/restarting, etc.

Fixed: Hammer ons, pull offs, and slides are now being saved to MusicXML files.
Fixed: Exceptionally jittery timing indicator in the notation window during playback compared to older versions of RealBand.

Fixed: Potential access violation if song has micro-pegs and multiple notes on a peg.
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.
