Great song!! Love the vocal, and those background vocals especially are top notch. Totally pro sounding mix too.

I see you are using the S-Gear amp simulator, I just started using that here too.

Very sad and beautiful song.

Unfortunately the same thing happened to me. My old dog was 13.
I spent six months in a terrible way and one morning I went to a kennel and I brought home a beautiful black puppy. Seven years are passed; sometimes the memory of the old dog comes back to you like a thunderbolt but I see to the other and I feel better.

Your dog was beautiful.

Sergio

Beautiful song Tom. I know how hard it can be losing a pet, particularly a dog. My daughter wants to get a dog (we have 3 cats) and part of my hesitation is because of how deep the bond is and how painful when it breaks. Sorry for your loss. This is so well done. Love the fiddle. Love what you did with the BG vocals. On the Tom Adams Greatest Hits album, this track would be first or last on one side (for those of us who remember vinyl LPs). Another simply great song!! Take care. Greg

What a tribute. There has to be a wonderful place that good dogs go to and we're sure he's happy. We've never been w/o a dog in our 35 years of marriage. Folks either get it or they don't but the most interesting thing about your song is that it is written in a manner that applies to other situations of loss. That had to take some thought...or, heck, perhaps it just flowed out.

It's so easy of us to get lost in the emotional aspects of the song that it's hard to parse it out...but it's all so good -- the vocals, guitar, arrangement and the mix. We will never take for granted Tommyad mixes. The soundstage is exquisite with every track having its place, complementing the other tracks and never stepping on them.

Eloquent and loving.

Tom,

This is incredibly poignant. Beautifully done. Love the oohs at the end with the strings. Chill bumps man.

God bless you.
Duncan was a big ( 100 lb ) beautiful Fox Red Labrador and is greatly missed. You are very thoughtful and kind. Thanks, Tom

You express the emotions so well in this song and I love all the vocals, especially the background. As always beautifully played, well written, from the heart. Pat Marr says just about everything
spot on and elegantly about this tender and well crafted song.

Kenny
Kenny, Losing a dog is a highly charged emotional event and writing this really helped me work through what I was feeling. Thanks, Tom

Thanks Sergio. My buddy Duncan was a 100 pound Fox Red Labrador Retriever and you're right he was beautiful- inside and out. Tom

I knew y'all would get it. The song did flow out,but then I realized it could be more universal with a few small tweaks. Thanks for your kindness. Tom

Anytime a reaction includes bird leather (chill bumps) that's a good sign. Thanks David, Tom

Hey Tom,

So sorry for your loss. I've certainly been there (I'm a dog person) and my current pup "Tinker" turned 14 in May... Don't know how much longer we've got. frown

This was a wonderful tribute and just a fine job all around! Again, so sorry for your loss.

Greg

Tom,

Boy, is this a powerful song. Anyone who has lost a "family member" will certainly relate. Really strikes a chord. I hope this song brings healing to you. You know I am a big fan of yours. I am also a big fan of songs that are truly from the heart. This one fits the bill. Great job, as always on the vocals. And the arrangement is top shelf.

I have been away for quite a while, and was so glad to see your contribution here when I returned.

Steve

Beautiful song Tommy. I feel your pain having to go through this a short while ago. Music definitely a healing therapy. Beautiful lyric and vocal. I believe someone is looking down on you with his tail wagging. Well done

It can't be said any better than that.
I had a "constant companion" for 15 years - still hurts...you really strike a chord here...

The "generic write" is well done.
Terrific production and mix. The guitar bits are really nice.

Sung from the heart.

A beautiful tribute. I feel for you.

Tom,

I'm incredibly late in getting to this one. I apologise for my tardiness. I'm very very sorry to hear about your loss. Try as I might, I can't think of any words better than what floyd has already said. This is beautiful. Outstanding and very, very touching.

May good things come your way.
Noel

49 of your Problems solved? List of 49 Requests fulfilled in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Mac.

With Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Mac there are a lot of new features, 202 RealTracks, and more. We get ideas for the new features and new RealTracks from our users. There are several sources, our Wishlist and general forum, support phone calls, trade shows, etc. In most cases, customers are not describing a new feature – they are describing a problem they have that they would like to have solved.

Here is a list of our features and additions in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Mac, presented from a unique perspective. It is from this customer list of "problems they would like solved." These are not exact quotes, they are paraphrased from our discussions with our customers. They explain what problems and requests they discussed with us, that resulted in the various new features and RealTracks. Hopefully this answers the question "Why did you add this feature/content?"

So, without further ado, here are the 49 requests/problems that we (hopefully) have solved with the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2019. We hope that many of them are relevant to you as well. And please keep suggesting new ones, we appreciate that.

Q. Almost all of my music apps are 64 bit, as is my Mac OS. But Band-in-a-Box® is 32 bit. And Apple's next OS, Catalina 10.15 is set to be released in October 2019 (the beta is available now), and that won't even run 32-bit apps! Can you make a 64 bit version?
A. Yes, we’ve done this with Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Mac. The app is 64 bit and the executable name is still Band-in-a-Box®.app (if you have an older 32-bit version it will get automatically renamed during the install to Band-in-a-Box®-32bit.app ).

Q. I have 64 bit plugins that I want to use with Band-in-a-Box®. But they only work with 64 bit apps. Can I use them with Band-in-a-Box® 2019, without having to use any special software for this?
A. Yes, 64 bit Plugins work natively with the 64 bit version of Band-in-a-Box® 2019. This means you can use your 64 bit plugins, including ones that use huge amounts of memory (more than 2GB).

Q. Does Band-in-a-Box® 2019 work on the latest OS, Catalina 10.15, as that has many changes?
A. Yes, Band-in-a-Box® 2019 is 64-bit and runs great on Catalina (and older OS's down to and including 10.6.8 Snow Leopard)

Q. I like Snow Leopard as an OS (10.6.8), will Band-in-a-Box® 2019 still run on that with all features working?
A. Yes, Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64 bit version runs great on older OS's including Snow Leopard, and has identical features and operation to the newer OS's
