Here's my last submission, called:
BETWEEN THE LINES

I used:

_THISTLE.STY. Thistle Train Fingerpicking
RD: CountryTrain: a: Brushes Soft b: Brushes Hard :Shawn Soucy
RT592: Bass, Acoustic Bluegrass Doc Ev 100 , Dow Tomlin
RT2541: Pedal Steel, Background ModernPopCountry Ev 110 , Eddy Dunlap
RT2514: Guitar, Acoustic, Fingerpicking BoomChickJoe Ev16 110 , Joe Robinson
RT2513: Guitar, Acoustic, Fingerpicking BoomChickHighJoe Ev16 110 , Joe Robinson

I added my own acoustic guitar, vocals and strings arrangement. The realtracks come into play gradually in the song. Hope you enjoy it :-)
Here's the lyrics:

BETWEEN THE LINES

Maybe I'm trying to be someone I'm not
maybe I think I'm flying but I'm falling
maybe I'm running fast but I should stop
or maybe I should at least slow down and wait for you

Maybe I'm trying to say things I don't know
maybe I think I'm winning but I'm just wasting
maybe I should pick up the phone and call
and tell you right away that I love you

And maybe, maybe I should
if I could see what a difference it makes
and maybe, maybe I would
if I could force myself
and take my days as they come
like every wave as it breaks on the shore
and ask nothing more
just like you do

Maybe I'm trying to be someone I'm not
maybe I think I'm living but I'm just waiting
Maybe I should just take my car and go
and drive to the end of the world to find you

And maybe I should
if I could see the things I miss between the lines
and maybe, maybe I would
if I could push myself
and live one day at a time
like all the seagulls on this lake as they glide and soar
and ask nothing more
just like you do

And maybe, maybe I should
if I could finally understand what I’m trying to say
and maybe, maybe I would
if I could be myself
every step of the way
like all these old friends knocking at my door
and ask nothing more
just like they do
just like you do
just like I should do

Maybe I'm trying to be someone I'm not
maybe I think I'm flying
but I'm just falling

Jon

Really well delivered. A beautiful melody, and the choice of tracks has worked so well.

This is quite sensational. Good luck with this, it deserves recognition.

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)

Note: The difference between the UltraPAK and the UltraPAK+ is that the MIDI Songs & Lessons PAK is included in the UltraPAK+ package.

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.
