Nomad of the Heart

wouldn`t you like to ride
said the clown with toad eyes
ride around the mirrorball of heaven?
he took me by surprise
changing horses at the time
at the last 7-11

back then she was all the rage
a psychic doctor named Sage
chose me to ascend with the Master
it might have been the sun
but in her eyes I saw a gun
with one bullet in the chamber

oh father, is it time?
to go to that big empty in the desert and the bars
where wolves circle in a forest of stars
time to be a nomad
a nomad of the heart

I met a girl named Hourglass
it seemed strange but I let it pass
and for me she danced the whirlwind
I thought I`d found the promised land
when I saw her counting grains of sand
as around her room we`d spin

out below this big blue curve
there`s some truths you gotta swerve
the vultures are wearing suits and collars
but I don`t think the flood will wait
`til make all that`s crooked straight
and I gave that clown my last dollar

oh father, is it time?
to go to that big empty in the desert and the bars
where wolves circle in a forest of stars
time to be a nomad
a nomad of the heart

Robert, I really like this. One change I would make would be to take out the "click-in" and just let it start with the wolf howling. The clicks detract from the mysteriousness of start of the song.

Very cool and the style works really well with it.

Oops... Thanks for the heads up about the clicks- reminds me I shouldn`t post a track while suffering from Post Traumatic Production Disorder!
Glad you liked the song.

Same thought here. But great song!!! I really enjoyed it. Good luck with the contest. This is a very solid entry.

Now that I heard this, I don't think the worst song ever written in the history of country--which I posted last week--stands a snowball's chance, but I can still hope and dream and pray.

Man,

I'm sitting here staring at my guitar now and I don't know what to do.

Maybe I will figure out something.

Robert,

This definitely has that country/cowboy feeling ;-)
I love that Badland style, almost used it myself.

Hi Robert,

Loved this and especially the eery/mysterious vibe going on.

I thought it would fit perfectly in the film Mulholland Drive.

Cheers

Robert,
I'll echo my comment already made on the extra styles contest forum:

This definitely has that country/cowboy feeling ;-)

ooh I haven`t seen that great movie in a long time - the mystery came from listening to some old Dylan tunes from his John Wesley Harding period.

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows was released in December 2018, and included many new features and enhancements - like the enhancements we made to our Notation window!

These include:
-Pressing the space bar plays the song from the current location.
-Double-clicking on the Standard mode Notation window (or on the time line in Editable or Staff Roll mode) plays the song from the current time location.
-The right-click menu in the Editable or Staff Roll mode Notation window has an option to change the current beat resolution. Previously, the only way to do this was to right-click on the time line.
-Clicking close to a stave line will put a note on the stave line instead of between stave lines. Previously, you had to click extremely close to a stave line to insert a note on it.
-In the Notation Windows Options dialog, the clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
-The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
-You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
-A new track type (Drums) is available for the Melody and Soloist tracks.
-Holding down the Ctrl key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
-There's a keystroke entry mode -the "N" mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, up/down cursor to change its pitch, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
-A new button in the Print Options dialog lets you quickly print a "chords only" fake sheet. You can also access this from the right-click menu on the Chord Sheet.
-You can now edit any track in the Event List Editor. When the dialog opens, it will show you the MIDI data in the current notation track.


There's detailed information on our 2019 notation enhancements here: Band-in-a-Box® 2019 New Feature - Notation Enhancements

Jump to the Notation topic in our Band-in-a-Box® 2019 new features video.

Attention Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Mac users - a new FREE patch update (build 315) is available!
Review details and download here

Summary of changes for build 315 (Nov 15, 2019):

Fixed: Exporting MusicXML files was not working.
Fixed: When using "Auto-Hand split Piano track" feature, exported MIDI files contain wrong note durations on the Piano track.
Fixed: Note-based lyrics were not included when exporting MIDI files.
Fixed: User should be prompted to save their song when exiting, if they had added or removed plugins.
Fixed: The Record Audio dialog always says “Track type is Stereo” even if the track type is mono.
Fixed: The [Audio Options…] button in the Record Audio dialog was launching the Audio Devices dialog instead of the Audio Settings dialog.
Fixed: Loops dialog title bar displays wrong track name.
Fixed: Large patch map files are not completely loaded (were limited to 1985 patches).
Fixed: Notation context menu > Edit Section Text… did not do anything.
Fixed: Notation context menu > Insert Section Text… did not do anything.

My Favorite Things - Nudge Chords in Band-in-a-Box®

Love this time saving feature.

Ever fill in the chordsheet fully or for part of song, and then discover you want to add or take away an extra beat or more somewhere in the chordsheet.

Nudge chords (melody) from the Edit Menu is your friend here, the dialog will give you all the options either to remove or add beats where its needed.

Love it.
