After not listening to the radio for 10 years (or any music, really) I tuned in again recently to listen to how songs were being produced these days for some ideas. I was surprised to find that 80% of Country these days sounds like late-70's Rock - if you take away the twang in the voice and the occassional pedal steel, you wouldn't know the difference. I always wanted this song to "rock" a bit, but don't have the chops myself to pull it off (I'm an acoustic-guitar-kind-of-guy).
Let's see what BIAB can do... (this is close to ENTIRELY BIAB)


GONE


I started with this...
Style is _RKMDBM1.STY (Rock Medium Brent Mason)

RealTracks in style: ~388:Bass, Electric, Metal Ev 120
RealTracks in style: 1169:Guitar, Electric, Soloist RockMediumBrent Ev 120
RealTracks in style: ~~499:Guitar, Electric, Rhythm StoneZ Flash 1 Ev 140
RealTracks in style: ~~505:Guitar, Electric, Rhythm StoneZ Flash 2 Ev 140
RealDrums in style: NashvilleEven8^8-a:Snare, HiHat Open , b:Snare, Ride

...and added this....
RealTracks in song: 380:Guitar, Acoustic, Strumming Syncopated Sugar Ev 102
RealTracks in song: ~406:Guitar, Acoustic, Strumming Ev 136
RealTracks in song: 1878:Fiddle, Soloist CountryRob Ev 120 (Bluesy)
RealTracks in song: 1000:Guitar, Electric, Rhythm HardRockLAFuzzyHeld Ev 120
RealTracks in song: ~~586:Harmonica, Background Blues Roadhouse Ev 120

I did a small guitar lick and the vocal. The BIABettes did the (limited) harmony.

Comments encouraged.

Hi Floyd,

Brilliant! Musicianship shines whichever way I look at this song. Great music, excellent lyrics, fantastic arrangement and mix and super performance. This sounds pretty much demo quality to me.

All the best,
Noel

Noel - you say the nicest things! Thanks.

One thing I forgot to mention... this is the first production I've ever done that (I think) sounds better, the louder you listen. Use some headphones and CRANK IT UP.

Floyd,

Think you made the trip pretty damn clear "Gone".

A reverse love song, just had enough of workin at it!

Bit different from your other songs, but did a great job.

As earlier comments, your lyrics are great also.

BTW, my wife of 47 years loved the song....Ohhhhh, hope she
doesn't think "Gone".

Outstanding production. I've said the same thing for years that today's country music is pop with a twang. This is very good. Well written and well performed. And those BIAB studio musicians are flawless as ever. Nice tune.

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!
