I'm re-posting my songs so I can update the links to my Soudcloud page... since all my songs have been deleted from the site I originally used. I will do this gradually so as not to overwhelm or be disrespectful of other posters. smile


(4/12/13)
This song was interesting when I was putting it together in BIAB... In order to get it to play the way I wanted I had to make certain measures 3 beats and then the following measure 1 beat, it worked fine but it did for some reason cause an extra beat or two in a couple of places like the intro and at the end of the half verse after the solo going into the last chorus... Instead of worry about it, I just went with what it gave me and worked with it. It also caused the ending to be weird, but I'm sure we're all use to that happening occasionally with BIAB anyway, so we just end up going to a fade out...
But I didn't do that! I went with what it gave me and ended up with a pretty cool ending... or at least one that would be pretty dang hard to do live!

The vocals are all me. My Telecaster "Trigger" has some tracks as well.

All comments welcome,

Greg

Walk In The Light

Sometimes I look around and can’t believe just what I see
So many people lost in their own misery
Some are searching some are wandering without a hope
But don’t give up ‘cause it’s not over till your story’s wrote


Well Just look up an see the light that’s shining down on me
You know it gives me strength it bathes me in serenity
It’s something you can have a promise those who seek shall find
It’ll never let you down the only way to peace of mind
Always Walk In The Light


Sometimes I look around and all I wanna’ do is cry
So many seem so blind and they won’t even try
To leave the path that they’ve been walkin’ down for so damn long
But listen up I tell you now you can belong

(Chorus)
(Ride)

You’ve got to leave the past the one that always pulls you down
And find a way to grab a hold of what the rest have found

(Chorus)

Very nice!! I don't recall hearing it before. Great vocal. I always hear some 70's in your tunes, which I LOVE because that was my favorite musical era. Great job!! Take care. Greg

Greg,

Terrific song! Your vocals are excellent ( something about your voice reminds me of John Anderson) and instrumentation well chosen- especially the fiddle.
I`m enjoying your reposts.

Nice song and melody - and I enjoyed the guitar parts (reminded me a bit of Dan Fogelberg's playing).

Very nice. The mix is very cohesive with an effective sound stage and it sounds great on our monitors. Your fine vocals are well supported by your playing and choice of RT's.

We like it!

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.
