Not Every Day Was Sad

I really like this STYLE which gave me the inspiration for this song. I added my Fender Nashville Power Telecaster on the intro, break, and fills. Everything else is BIAB. The tracks were exported from BIAB to Reaper and the guitar, vocals, and harmonies added.

Thanks for listening,
Bob grin

Wow, Buford - great job on this one! It sounds sincere, and really heartfelt, and the guitar work on it is superb smile And the backing harmonies that kicked in around 1 minute, I definitely didn't anticipate that!

A very catchy tune - thanks so much for sharing! You should be proud of this one smile

Hi, Deryk. So pleased you enjoyed this one. It took a lot longer than most, but lots of fun to do.

Thanks for listening,

Very cool tone on the tele. You sure have that dialed in. Super vocal and backtrack

Hey, Scott. Glad you liked the song.

My Tele setup is dirt simple:

- Bridge pickup: full volume, tone down a bit from full (10% down)
- Single (no repeats) short slapback echo: note and echo about the same volume
- Compression: heavy and obvious, with lots of sustain (not max)
- No reverb, except what the master mix adds.
- D'Addario Jazz-Rock (EXP115) string set with an added nine on top makes playing steel licks a snap to execute: 9,11,14,28,38,49 (throw out the 3rd string 18 that comes with the set)
Your fingers will thank you.

You can hear the pick sounds at the beginning of the song, which sort of indicate the high level of compression. Give it a shot if you like/or need that kind of tone.

Thanks for listening,
Bob

Thanks for sending me your settings. I managed to pickup a well loved 83 Tele with a rosewood neck. I have been fooling with settings but everything sounds like my strats. Look forward to getting a more traditional tele tone. Tom Adams also gets a wicked sound out of his tele as well..

Hi, Joe. Glad you enjoyed it. The STYLE seemed to suggest to me a kind of Eagles thing. Like "Peaceful Easy Feeling", or "Lyin' Eyes". So I pulled out my best Don Felder, Bernie Leadon chops and got to work. Makes me want to do more like this. We'll see. smile

Thanks for listening,

Bob,

This is such a great sound! I really like the laid-back, easy 8-beat groove. It's a perfect fit for the song. The write, the arrangement and the presentation are outstanding to my ears. I agree with Deryk, those background harmonies are a pleasant surprise.

There's a lot of craftsmanship on display with what you've done here.

Really enjoyed it!

Regards,
Noel

Very nice showcase of what BiaB + fine user picking + fine user vocal can yield.

And the write and production are in the pocket.

Enjoyed it!

The Band-in-a-Box® Flash Drive Backup Option

Today (April 5) is National Flash Drive Day!

Did you know... not only can you download your Band-in-a-Box® Pro, MegaPAK, or PlusPAK purchase - you can also choose to add a flash drive backup copy with the installation files for only $15? It even comes with a Band-in-a-Box® keychain!

For the larger Band-in-a-Box® packages (UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, Audiophile Edition), the hard drive backup copy is available for only $25. This will include a preinstalled and ready to use program, along with your installation files.

Backup copies are offered during the checkout process on our website.

Already purchased your e-delivery version, and now you wish you had a backup copy? It's not too late! If your purchase was for the current version of Band-in-a-Box®, you can still reach out to our team directly to place your backup copy order!

Note: the Band-in-a-Box® keychain is only included with flash drive backup copies, and cannot be purchased separately.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first? If your flash drive (or other USB plug) doesn't have a symbol to indicate which way is up, look for the side with a seam on the metal connector (it only has a line across one side) - that's the side that either faces down or to the left, depending on your port placement.
