Latest collaboration with Christiane Spruit. This one is a bit more uptempo than our last few, more of a Blues/Rock feel.

Ghost Town

Video coming soon, I'll update the description once it's ready.

The band:
Drums: BluesRockFunky16ths
Bass: 1769
Piano: 1772
Guitar: 1436

Also added a few additional guitar parts, tele rhythm and strat leads.

Ghost Town (Christiane Spruit, 2017)

Waiting for the train to come
to take me for the ride
heading to a place down town
into the city life
leave the dusty road behind me
misreading all the signs
good night hometown
next stop ghost town
out

I'll be gone so many miles
until the day is done
passing trains they have no name
are figures of the game
Riding horses made of steel
will Rock me into sleep
with all the towns and
ghostly clouds in
me

(Chorus A)
Golden fields hot summers glow
behind the strangers eyes
promise sings the Hummingbird
I'll take you to the sky

Begging for the train to stop
to wake me for a while
waving all the clouds behind
into a clear blue sky
stranger faces offer me
a ticket for a ride
leaving the ghost town
bring me safe home
tonight

Solo

(Chorus B)
Golden fields hot summers glow
behind the strangers eyes
Travelling to the promised land
A ticket for a ride

Outro vamp

Dave,
A very good ride! Train theme songs are a big favourite of mine and you`ve added a nice touch of mystery to this one.
Great rhythm, strong vocals and very tasty guitar work - what`s not to like?

Thanks Scott!

For the solo I used a strat into the S-Gear amp sim, their Tweed model which I really like. Also used the Mercuriall Tube Screamer 808 VST to feed the S-Gear. Free plugin BTW, I recommend it.

Dave & Chris,

EVERYTHING about this works!

A good blues/rock write. Excellent arrangement and excellent mix. "Just right" instrumentation. Good drums. The piano is a great addition.

Tasty guitar work throughout. Awesome lead!

Well sung. A terrific listen. Might be your best. Worth many listens.

Hi Dave.

Wonderful stuff!

The backing has a definite funk feel to it - a bit sort of Average White Band, which I love.

Everything works well and the solo is sublime. Great vocals too.

Very professional throughout.

ROG.

Dave and Chris,

This is top shelf all the way!

Not only are the production and arrangement superb, Chris's singing is outstanding and the writing (melody and lyrics) is really engaging. You've both done a first class job with this.

All the best,
Noel

Another really excellent production with great vocals. The wah effects and other effects you are using on the guitar are great. Love the solo.

Awesome job.

Blondie?! I'm sure I could count on one hand the number of times I have heard that band and still have some fingers left smile Nothing against them BTW, just not a band I'm that familiar with.

Thanks for the listen and comment Joe, I appreciate it! smile

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!
