If you don't like Country, you're gonna HATE this. Always wanted this song to have that "tinkly country piano" and a pedal steel. Thanks to PGMusic and BIAB, that is now possible!!!

Feeling Nothing At All

Here are the RealTracks:

Style is WALTZIN.STY (Waltzin' - Slow Sw. Waltz)

RealTracks in song: ~1121:Bass, Acoustic, CountryWaltz Sw 085
RealTracks in song: 1884:Piano, Acoustic, Soloist Country12-8John Sw 065 (Bluesy)

RealTracks in song: ~1126:Pedal Steel, Rhythm CountryWaltz Sw 085

floyd,

I like country, I like country waltz's.
Hence you've got a real winner here.
Your vocals are powerful, and the harmony adds nice touch.
Your lyrics tell an awfully sad heartbreaking story.

The tinkelies sound good me.

I could not listen to this too many times, you are very convincing
with your vocals. I'd have tear in my beer.

Thanks for your hard work, and sharing with us!

I feel some Kenny Rogers and some Willie also.

Very nicely done,

Very nice tune and recording. I think I hear some Charlie Rich in there.

Guys - thanks for listening and for the comments. Obviously, no one does this type of song these days - the comparisons all being 30 (?) years back - Gilley, Kenny, Willie - and I had forgotten about Charlie Rich. The piano does sound a lot like his playing. It's nice to be able to "call on" John Jarvis when you need him....

Wow - you really captured what "real country music" should sound like. You hit all the marks - sad, booze, broken heart... - it's a 70s hit! What a fantastic hook line. I think this is great. And I too cheer BIAB. I gave my band off for a few weeks but I will be calling them back any day now.

Great work!

Floyd,

I just took your style information and created _WALTZIN RT's with it.
Listened to that song so many times.

Am going to create a melodist with it and then try it on a song.

Appreciate your sharing and just love the song...Again.....

Nice slow country groove. I find it harder to mix songs of that tempo than any other. Good tears in the beer and saw dust on the floor lyrics also.

Mootsman - thanks for the listen. The only hard thing about ths one was getting the piano to "fit". The rest just fell into place.

seeker - glad that you could get something out of this. Keep in mind - the piano track is not necessarily meant for this style or tempo. I generated about 25 different version - the variety was amazing. Of those, I heard about 5 that had licks that I liked (thought were right for what I was after). From those 5, I picked pieces to come up with the final track....

I dont generally like country music. but this is the best thing I've heard here in a while! Your voice certainly suits the genre. Love the country break in the voice. Two woots!

Hi Floyd,

You sure know how to maintain "consistently excellent". I sat back, closed my eyes and just listened. It was great.

All the best,
Noel

Review - Loops-with-Style PAK 2 for Band-in-a-Box® 2020

"Dr. Dave" Walker is at it again! You may remember his recent reviews of both Band-in-a-Box 2020 for Mac and Xtra Styles PAK 9 - now he has something to say about our Loops-with-Style PAK 2 - check it out: Click here to read...

With money being tight for most musicians, this is a wonderful gift for those on a limited budget. At $29, it offers months and years of fun and experimentation, bringing many ideas to fruition as songs with enough variation so that your audience doesn’t jump to "aw, that's a computer!" while still keeping the power of the software in your hands.
-"Dr. Dave" Walker

Thank you again Dr. Dave for the great review!

My New Favorite Thing - Extra Style PAK #9 with Loop Pack #2

I set up an eight bar progression with some simple pushes, shots, holds, and rests for reference. Then I started auditioning styles--Three hours later, I am invigorated, inspired, and just plain smiling big. Really CHOICE! From "down to earth" to eclectic, this is a really fun pak.

Great job, folks!
