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.

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!
