Here's a song I wrote almost 50 years ago. I decided to change it to Western Swing after I heard some of the new BIAB Western Swing styles. I had rhythm fiddle and pedal steel going till the solos, then I muted each and added the Steel and Fiddle solo tracks. The ending (at around 2:48) has a shot on everything except the drums. At 75, my voice is starting to go, so kindly overlook the vocal.

I'll Get Over You

I really like it - you've got a Randy Newman sort of vibe.

Must... not... give... mixing... advice... to... someone... more... clearly.. more... qualified...

Nope, can't stop myself!

The mix is nice and hot, but it feels like it buries the vocals in places. And as nice as the instruments are, they get plenty of time to solo. I want to hear more of your vocals, or less backing instruments on the track.

Great toe tapper!

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Harvey - nice job. I agree with David - more vocal, less instruments - you have a cool voice.

I like the voice very much. Doesn't sound like 75 at all.
Give us more.

Yeah, I could turn up the vocals a bit, but I'd cringe even more than I do now. This was from an album I did to quiet my wife and there are some songs that I feel better about. Every song used BIAB tracks and my friend Dale Reid did all the lead guitar stuff. These are the songs I did for the album:

Summertime
Everybody's Talkin'
Don't Think Twice
Girl From Ipanema
I'll Get Over You
Scotch and Soda (I played all rhythm guitars)
I've Been Livin With The Blues
I'm Confessin' (That I Love You)
It Was A Very Good Year
Blue Prelude
If (The Song by Bread)
(They Call The Wind) Mariah

I just put all of them up on Soundcloud here:

My Soundcloud stuff


If they give you some BIAB ideas, then it's good.

Harvey, I hear Tex Beneke (sp?), Bob Wills, and, strangely, Phil Harris in this one. Not a bad crowd to be compared to, my friend. I will go back and listen to the full album later. Thanks for posting.

Hi Hervey,

What a great toe-tapper! I loved it. As everyone has already said, the vocals were a bit back in the mix but that still didn't hide the fact that this is a very well written song on every level. I'm really glad you posted this because it was a great listen.

All the best,
Noel

Western swing at its best!

I agree with David but I wouldn’t bring the vocals up. I would bring the backing track riffs down! It may be more balanced that way.

But this is a very good song as is!

Harvey,

Right on with the beat and arrangement. Great dancing number.
I did enjoy your vocals. Telling the story in the lyrics.

Good music is timeless.

Thanks for sharing with us all!

"...50 years ago..." What, are you the Rolling Stones or someone?

This does swing. I love this style music. Great hook line. The vocals are neat. This has a real live feel to it.

Good one! I have to these instruments to my BIAB collection soon.

Thanks for another lesson in what BiaB can do.

Harvey,

Thanks so much for sharing this! I always look forward to anything you have to share. I am a huge admirer of your work, and have utmost respect for you.


I listened to all the songs on Soundcloud. Very impressive mixture. How can we get a copy of your album?

You're kidding, right? You actually listened to all the songs? Wow, I can't even do that.

I just did this album for my wife, who's been pestering me for years to actually make a CD of some of the songs I sing and play.

It was never meant for sale or distribution, but if you're serious about wanting a copy, send your mailing address to: hargerst@airmail.net, and I'll send you a copy.

Thank you and I'm really flattered.

Added:

I've put all the songs in album order here:

Harvey Gerst's "Almost Live" album

All the songs are downloadable.

(All the arrangements are my own - don't blame anybody else.)

In total aggrement with Mario, and yes to the rest of the album as I just heard a bit of each tune on soundcloud. Liked them all but man oh man your western swing songs pull the wagon.

Great listen,

Great! I know it is categorized as a country swing song but, somehow it bring to my memory the images of the "roaring 20's", you know, ballroom dancing, tuxedos and long dresses.

While I do like "I'll Get Over You," I really like what BIAB did for If"

http://soundcloud.com/harvey-gerst/if

and for "Summertime"

http://soundcloud.com/harvey-gerst/summertime

both well known songs with not so well known arrangements.

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.
