Easter is just around the corner... hop, hop..
If you were planning to give something up for Lent, there's only a couple of days left. smile
Hopefully it wasn't writing. Or producing. It's getting kinda slow around here...

This is a co-write with Bill Osofsky.
It's got nothing to do with the holiday (or religion).


GIVEN UP FOR LENT

honey, have you seen my titan's sweatshirt?
i can't find it on my closet shelf
in fact, i'm sure i loaned it to your brother
when he got bar-b-que all on his self
patience and forgiveness
ain't the only things i lack
nothin' that i lend him
ever seems to make it back

(chorus)
ya know i love ya, baby
i love your family, too
but your brother's just a moocher
five finger rendezvous
anything i'm missin'
i know just where it went
'cause everything he borrows
i've given up for lent.

that shirt he wears with f.j. on the pocket
ya know your brother's name is clem devine
his twelve piece black and decker set of sockets
i'd bet your mother's teeth that it was mine
i swear he's got a share of
everything i own
'cause every time we visit him
it looks like i'm at home

(repeat chorus)

(bridge)
they say a penny saved's a penny earned
apparently, a lesson that he's learned

(repeat chorus)

Thanks, Greg. Past year or so is when I "met" Bill... we've written several together...

Glad you like it, Richard. Should have known that line would be "right up your alley"... (one of Bill's). Thanks for the listen...

Hi Floyd.

I see you've reverted to type with this one and I have to say that no one on here does country better than you.

Clever lyrics. I'm sure lots of us know someone just like that.

Nice arrangement, production and mix. The whole package is just fully professional.

ROG.

Another little pearler, great to have some toe-tappin' fun. Real comical lyrics, genius in fact!
Top production, mix, choice of instruments, absolutely everything.
Real nice

Floyd, the control worked perfectly. I think this hasn't been the case previously with those pages, but this time it worked great!

Hey Floyd,

I really like this - outstanding vocal and melody. I could hear Roger Miller doing this one. Very nice!

Hi Floyd,
So you lined up a few guitars again ☺
I counted 8!!!

Another song that I consider study material.
But first... Enjoying the song!
Great fun!

"that shirt he wears with f.j. on the pocket
ya know your brother's name is clem device"

LOL!

You know I'm a fan ☺

Things are a little slow here indeed, 4 songs in the pipeline, but just bought a Gretsch ☺, and we're going caravaning near saint tropez for two weeks ... So I'm taking a little break. Hopefully there's wifi there.

I have prepared a dvd with the best of the user Showcase forum to take along.

Always near you all!

Fred

PS The link works great!

floyd,

Yeh country as it should be!! and I can relate to them words mad
There are some good lines in this song laugh
"but your brother's just a moocher
five finger rendezvous"
and
"cause every time we visit him
it looks like i'm at home"

Good song floyd and Bill

The new link works great, but then I didn't have a prob with the other one!

Great comedy style write. Clever word-smithing.

On the topic.... I never lend anything with the hope of getting it back.

If I "lent" something to someone in the past, I consider it a gift. That's usually how it ends up anyway.

I'm generally fairly surprised when someone returns something to me in a timely manner. So imagine my surprise when my new brother-in-law comes to my house a day and a half later, says thanks.... and hands me the single nut driver bit I let him use.

Hi Floyd,

very clever and funny lyrics.
Arrangement and presentation are your
usual high standard. Your consumption of
guitars is amazing.
My regards to Bill. A great collab.

Tom mentioned to me that the solo guitars needed some reverb.
So I added some and uploaded a new mix.
(Also corrected a lyric faux pas that he pointed out. HA!)
Thanks, Tom...

Hi there Floyd,

This is a nice 'working' style country song. Steady as always, I also very much like the talking in the end, haha.
Of course no soloist fits better here than Brent.
It's the first time I didn't have to use the Windows media player on your website. This new slider works flawlessly in my browser.

I really like this. Excellent from start to finish! Although it does seem a little weak on guitar tracks. grin

This one reminds me of a "song challenge" write. Your given a topic, or title or some starting point and everyone in the group returns the next week with their take of the challenge.

I use to be in a group like that and I enjoyed it immensely.

So if the challenge was "Given Up For Lent" this song would have knocked all the other entries clean out of contention!

Simply a super reinterpretation and development of a lyrical idea!

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.
