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.

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit for macOS Catalina

With Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit for Mac we added Drum Notation Support, and we didn't stop there! Other Notation Enhancements added in this new version are:

-A new track type (Drums) is available for the Melody and Soloist tracks.
-Clicking close to a stave line will put a note on the stave line instead of between stave lines. Previously, you had to click extremely close to a stave line to insert a note on it.
-Holding down the control key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
-In the Notation Window Options dialog, the clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
-Notation is much clearer, not jagged, on retina screens.
-The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
-The right-click menu in the Editable or Staff Roll mode Notation window has an option to change the current beat resolution. Previously, the only way to do this was to right-click on the time line.
-There is a keystroke entry mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, M to enter a third note, up/down cursor to change the pitch of the highlighted note, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
-You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
