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

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!

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first?

Band-in-a-Box® 2024 Review: 4.75 out of 5 Stars!

If you're looking for a in-depth review of the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows version, you'll definitely find it with Sound-Guy's latest review, Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows Review: Incredible new capabilities to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs.

A few excerpts:
"The Tracks view is possibly the single most powerful addition in 2024 and opens up a new way to edit and generate accompaniments. Combined with the new MultiPicker Library Window, it makes BIAB nearly perfect as an 'intelligent' composer/arranger program."

"MIDI SuperTracks partial generation showing six variations – each time the section is generated it can be instantly auditioned, re-generated or backed out to a previous generation – and you can do this with any track type. This is MAJOR! This takes musical experimentation and honing an arrangement to a new level, and faster than ever."

"Band in a Box continues to be an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs, as well as an extensive educational resource. It is huge, with hundreds of functions, more than any one person is likely to ever use. Yet, so is any DAW that I have used. BIAB can do some things that no DAW does, and this year BIAB has more DAW-like functions than ever."
