Lonesome Feeling

Here is one we wrote while ago. I was asking for some feedback from Floyd who suggested I go with my guide vocal, so here for what it's worth and with some trepidation is my first lead vocal posted here.

I do have a nice version with Leon singing - (I think we'll just keep this one to ourselves.....)

Leon wrote the lyrics I played the guitar solos and sang.

RealTracks in style: ~1123:Bass, Acoustic, CountryWaltz Sw 140
RealTracks in style: ~1702:Piano, Acoustic, Rhythm CountryWaltz Sw 140
RealTracks in style: ~825:Guitar, Acoustic, Strumming Country Waltz Sw 140
RealTracks in style: 2544:Pedal Steel, Background ModernWaltz Sw 140
RealDrums in style: NashClassicWaltzSw^2-a:SideStick, HiHat , b:Snare, Ride

Lonesome Feeling

I got drunk & stoned again last night
Even smoked a cigarette or two
I have these days I just can’t help myself
I do the things I shouldn’t ought’a do

I looked up at the stars as I was walking through Bondi
Felt the cold night wind upon my face
A little melancholy, but nowhere near despondent
Gazing up there into outer space

Tableau's in the windows lit by golden light
They sure look cozy I agree
But I have no desire, to be behind those windows
Out here I have everything I need

Chorus
I wouldn’t stop this lonesome feeling
For riches or security
I wouldn’t stop this lonesome feeling
For anything that you could offer me

I love that sweet sad country music
I love to hear that steel guitar
I love to listen to the wind up in the trees
But sometimes girl I wonder where you are

Chorus
I wouldn’t stop this lonesome feeling
For riches or security
I wouldn’t stop this lonesome feeling
For anything that you could offer me

Peter, I have to say that I was thinking that you your vocal would be less than good since you you have never posted one. Boy was I wrong! The vocal sounds terrific. I know this won't be the last we hear of that engaging voice. Nice country waltz. Well put together and I enjoyed the guitar playing. Well done! Tom

Hi Peter,

nice waltz. Great guitar.
I wonder why you don't sing more often. I'm positively
surprised.

Janice said she heard some Leon, some Lou Reed and that you sounded southern (US) and would make a good bluegrass singer smile That is all very good! And, she just said "he needs to sing more." She particularly liked the way you sang "Tableau's in the windows lit by golden light."

And as Tom said "Nice country waltz. Well put together and I enjoyed the guitar playing." Yup, the guitar work sounded extra special on this one.

And not that we'd expect less...but another great lyric from Leon.

Well done and a goodie for our SC playlist!

Peter,
A very good song; you have a good voice with a relaxed, world-weary delivery that`s a great fit for the lyrics (I was thinking it could come forward a little in the mix).
Super guitar playing.

Robert

Well Peter,

There's definitely no reason to not sing your songs yourself ;-)
Or sing a backing vocal to Leon's voice or vice versa.
You could use a little bit more reverb on the vocal, by the way.
Great guitar work!

Peter,
I thought your vocal was a perfect fit for this song. You have a sort of Greg Allman tone.
Great country rock vibe with a terrific arrangement.

Hi Peter.

I'm with those who said you need to keep on singing - I love the smooth sound of your voice and the performance is excellent.

Nice arrangement and choice of instruments. A very engaging song and a very professional package all round.

Thanks for all the nice comments and encouragement.
"Tableau's in the windows lit by golden light" is probably my favourite line in the lyrics.

Hello, Peter

Though I have listened to your guitar on Janice & Bud's song, I listened your vocal for the first time.
As Josie said, I also thought your vocal was a perfect fit for this song.
Maybe you love country songs very much.

Best Regards.

Review - Xtra Styles PAK 9 for Band-in-a-Box® 2020

Remember that wonderful review of Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac we received last month from "Dr. Dave" Walker, Band-in-a-Box 2020 for Mac … WOW!?

Well, Dr. Dave is at it again! He's had a chance to work with the newest Xtra Styles PAK 9, and shares his thoughts in his recent Xtra Styles PAK 9 for Band-in-a-Box 2020 – Worth It? post at Dr. Dave On Music - make sure you check it out!

Sneak peak...
...PG Music has gone deeper into several styles, using more or fewer instruments, adding unexpected ones, and giving some surprising make-overs. Others are more focused versions of particular styles with more extreme attention to the best of that genre. Other ones combine styles that sound great, such as adding a banjo to a rock or blues track, or a jazz sax to a folk style. There are many wonderful combinations to try out that will expand any songwriter or arranger’s palette. These are the things that make certain songs stand out, and experimenting with them is not just fun (a lot of fun!) but it will expand your horizons on what is possible and even excellent. For instance, my light jazz arrangement worked very well as a country song, which floored me, and also as a folk-alt-jazz fusion. One sax solo was worth the price of admission alone, as it sounds terrific in any of the arrangements.
-"Dr. Dave" Walker

Again we say, "Thank you for the review Dr. Dave!" - we really enjoyed reading this enthusiastic review!

The Band-in-a-Box® Panic "Button"

Today is International Panic Day... did you know that Band-in-a-Box® has a "Panic Button"?

What does it do?

Accessible from the Play Menu (or by selecting F12), you would choose this if your MIDI notes are stuck ON and it’s driving you crazy! Also within the Band-in-a-Box® Play Menu is the "Panic should also Reset DXi synth" option, which will clear hung DXi/VSTi notes.
