great video too, I notice that comments are disabled though one could only have good things to say about this production.

Well done to everyone involved.

Hi Janice & Bud (and Floyd),

fun and fresh. I remember the original.
Very nicely arranged. I like the fiddle.
Janice lively as always and good support
by Floyd. (Where is he by the way?)
Bud did a great job on the video.
I enjoyed it a lot.

Unlike the title, I'd say this is "Fun Central"!! Really well put together. Clean, tight, and creative writing and production. Vocals are great (Janice and FJ nailed it). From the credits, it looks like it was painstaking (lots of instruments, and multiple generations) but the result was worth it-not a note out of place. Great job!! Take care. Greg

Hi Janice, Bud and Floyd,

We never heard the first version, so we cannot compare.
We can only say this though: another solid production, nice video!
The colors fit the mood of the song.
Well sung Janice and the same goes for floyd.

Thanks Greg! It was a bit tedious but I really wanted the solos to transition well into the vocal. Even more tedious was finding public domain images that seemed to fit the lyric. All in all....tedious but counterintuitively also fun.

Good video!

I gave the neighbours this song to listen to this morning, LOUD! and no complaints yet so they must like it too LOL

Cool tune..... I think I recall this. It's always fun to revamp some of the old stuff after you have learned a few new things about this hobby. I'm always tempted to do that on some as I listen to the stuff I have done years ago......

Nice job on the re-do.

One of my favorites of yours so far. Everything in place and a superb mix. A little bluesy and a bit of western swing vibe together in a great production, arrangement and performance.

I had a lot of fun listening to this one and will certainly be going back for more.

Hello Janice and Bud,

The good old country !
Who has played the guitar solo ? is it a Real track ?

It reminds me of a very good movie about country, Nashville Blues, with River Phoenix
bravo for the video

Hey y'all, nice that you liked it and thanks for commenting on the video. It get a bit tedious trying to find public domain images that fit the lyric and are large enough to be cropped to 16:9. That's the reason I didn't use more smile

Thanks Herb. Man, I can listen to something I did 3 months ago and want to redo it. But I'm still on the steep side of the learning curve. Glad you liked it.

Everything that I wanted to say already has been said.

Like I have said a number of times you guys should be on the radio! What you, Floyd and a number of others do is definitely much better than what is on the radio today ---period.

Thanks Charlie! Blues and Western swing is a great combo in our book. And I appreciate you mentioning the mix.

Thanks again, guys, for letting me be a small part of this.

I like it more every time I hear it. Some very cool lines in the writing. The new mix is great.

Janice "She Could Sing The Phonebook" Merritt doing her usual. smile

Bud showing his new-found talent for lyric videos. Exceptional. Really.

We're excited to say that all Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows UltraPAK and UltraPAK+ orders now ship on a USB 3.0 hard drive!

What does this mean? Faster hard drive transfer rates will enhance the program operations (faster time to generate tracks, reduced audio artifacts) and offer faster transfer speeds (typically up to 3x faster)!

It's a great time to order your UltraPAK or UltraPAK+ Upgrade... they're ON SALE until December 31st!

Band-in-a-Box® UltraPAK $469
Upgrade from Version 2018: [color:#FF0000]$149[/color] (reg: $279)
Upgrade from Version 2017 or earlier or crossgrade: [color:#FF0000]$169[/color] (reg: $299)

Video: Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows® New Features!

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.
