Let Me Go
© 2017 Kenny Leverett
06/16/2017

Girl you comfort me
Like a summer breeze
And for your love
I went down on my knee

Now the evenings I go down
To this little bar
And I don’t think too much
About the way things are

Cause sometimes the pain doesn’t show
Still if you need to darling
Let me go

Well the markets good
We could sell this place
Leave this house behind
See what there is to find

If the truth be told
You left me long ago
Too many fights ago
Can’t say I didn’t know

Still sometimes the pain doesn’t show
But if you need to darling
Let me go

For a long time
Our fortunes climbed
Now we’re in free fall
Writings on the wall

Deep in your heart
Theres an answer that you know
No need to keep your secrets
Anymore

Still sometimes the pain doesn’t show
But if you need to darling
Let me go

Nice! Your vocal is just top notch, one of your best I think. Janice sounds great too.

Good song!

Kenny,
Lump in the throat good.Its an uncompromising song and I admire the way you write about sadness.
As usual your vocal has an edginess that makes it more real and I really like the way you kept Janice`s excellent harmony high in the mix- almost a duet on the chorus.
Yes, one of your best.

Robert

You nailed this one, Kenny! The vocal delivery on this is superb, and the whole song has a morbid, honest tone to it.

Thanks so much for sharing! You should be proud of this one smile

Deryk,

thank you for the listen and kind words,

I had to respond to yours first because it made me chuckle

Country ballads are often sad and often about the end of a relationship

I don't see either of these characters killing the other or going insane,

that's how I would interpret "morbid" but I'm fine with that description,

read into the song whatever you want and maybe I'm misunderstanding a

word for sad. Do Canadians usually end relationships by killing each other?

(just kidding)

thanks

Great song Kenny.
Nothing like a well placed harmony to give another dimension to this well crafted song.
This ticks all the boxes.

Beautiful song Kenny. I love the way you mixed this one. Super vocal and Janice's harmonies were so delicate and framed your vocal so well.

Loved the acoustic..

Thank you Robert for the very kind words,

Bud set that volume level and the first thing I thought was - it sounds like a duet -

and I loved the blend, I agree, it's an excellent harmony

Kenny & Janice,

Neo-Classic Country at its best! Great song and both of you delivered wonderfully on the vocals. Reminds me of something Brooks & Dunn might have recorded. And back in the early 90s there was a guy named Andy Griggs who would have knocked this out of the ball park. But, have no doubt, this is super recording of a truly great song. Raw emotion and biting truth - fabulous lyric!

Alan & Di

Hahaha! Perhaps "morbid" isn't the best adjective - I was referring more to the tonality and delivery than the subject matter. A wonderful song regardless!

Rest assured, us Canadians don't kill each other after a breakup - we just say sorry back and forth til the end of time smile

Kenny wrote another wonderful song and I was excited to be invited in. And thanks for mentioning the duet feel.

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.
