Jerry "wolf" Arnold was a friend of mine. He was a bluegrass musician who lived in Fancy Gap Virginia. He introduced me to my wife. He hosted a bluegrass music festival on his mountain property every year around the end of August for his birthday. Hundreds of his friends from all over would come and camp out and play music.

One year, he married his long time girl friend at the festival.

He developed cancer and after fighting it for a few years finally lost the fight to the disease.

He loved music and learned to play guitar but his real love turned out to be the mandolin.

On this track I play guitar and sing...

Band in a Box is playing everything else..... mixing was done on Sonar.

The music starts at 20 seconds into the video so hang in there....


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5DmLXESjGWs yeah... I'm in this video 2:49 center , 5:07 blue shirt, 5:48 ... me on L, my wife in center, Wolf on R

Just the song>>>> http://soundclick.com/share.cfm?id=11843061

I hope you enjoy it.

Herb,

Beautiful in every way. The song, the production, the video. You've done an incredible thing "sharing your dear friend Wolf" with us - and all who might one day see and hear this. Touching, to say the least...

Hey thanks for listening and commenting.

This song was something that I wanted to do for a few years and started and stopped. Writing a song like this is not easy. I started in earnest to complete this in the spring of last year and had the goal of having it ready before his birthday in August. This time it all came together in fine fashion. Several people who were asked to contribute to recording and writing backed out in the end leaving me to "do it all". I was able to get 2 people to send me some photo's of Wolf which I scanned and returned.

Several of the people in the video said that it takes a lot to make them cry, but by the end of the song, two of them (big burly guys) were wiping tears and warned their wives to bring the tissue box before "you watch this" video since it's gonna make you cry.


This was indeed a labor of love and a project from the heart. I'm glad you all enjoyed it.

Guitarhacker....thanks for a loving tribute to your friend and for bring back many memories for me of my earlier days in the hollers of West Virginia. I 'saw" quite a few friends sitting around those campfires and splashing in the creek there in your YouTube vid....haven't thought about them in years. Thanks for the memories.

Herbie, I have always been a fan of your music, and this song is no different. I loved what you did with it. Tough to lose dear friends. It is great to have a hope for the future of receiving loved ones back. John 5:28,29

Beautiful work old friend.

Video: Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows® New Features!

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.
