I don't usually post songs this close together, but my wife and I are packing up for long trip out west. Some of the time we are in areas that don't have good or, sometimes not any, internet. I was beginning to get a backlog built up and it might be longer than usual before you hear from me. This new song is about a subject that is dear to me and my wife. We always said that when I retired we wanted to get out and see the country at our leisure. I'm not talking about vacation mode, but actually experiencing what living in a particular area would be like. This will be our sixth year on the road. Until now I haven't been able to record while on the road, but recently I have been working on downsizing my recording setup to make it possible to do just that. I hope you will like it.

I Must Be Dreaming


I Must Be Dreaming

Traveling down the highway in my new RV
The whole gulf coast spread out in front of me
I must be dreaming, I must be dreaming
but if I'm drea---ming, Lord don't let me wake up now
I must be dreaming, I must be dreaming

The interstate spreading out so far and wide
It feeds my need to roam
people I meet they ask me, Where you from?
I say. The highway is my home
I must be dreaming, I must be dreaming

Beautiful lady sitting by my side
every time I look at her my heart fills with pride
I must be dreaming, I must be dreaming
but, if I'm drea---ming, Lord don't let me wake up now
I must be dreaming, I must be dreaming

Every time I think about the kind of life we lead
It makes me higher than a Georgia pine
and if you see us coming with a smile on our face
it means we just crossed another state line
I must be dreaming, I must be dreaming
Oh, I must be dreaming

Great Drivin' song in more ways than one.

Hope the 'Drive in the new RV' is even better than the song.

Harmonica slotted in the lead break really well.

Hi Gary,

Rock-a-billy blues - I like it! I'm really enjoying this side of you we've not much of before. This and your previous post are terrific. Everything you do is a great listen, but this side of you is a real nice change of pace. Nice selection of backing tracks and the Harmonica is particularly good. Great stuff, my friend!

Hope you and your wife have a heckuva good time with your travels. And I enjoy the same thing - traveling and visiting as I see fit. I've been fortunate enough to visit all but three states (Oregon, Washington and Hawaii) plus more than 40 countries. I loved every day of it.

Be safe on your journey and try to have too much fun. And give us a song while you're out there, if you can. I always anticipate good things when I click onto your songs. Best to you and yours,

Alan

The songs sounds great and so does the lifestyle. We've been retired for many years and often talk about hitting the road for an extended period of time....just do it!

We enjoyed the write, the arrangement and the performanes!

Well done and have fun...

Great job on this one smile It takes me back to long road trips I used to take as a kid through my teenage years. I love the groove on this tune, it had my foot tapping the whole way through.

Awesome work here - thanks for sharing!

Very cool!! Love the vibe, and very natural vocal style. Harmonica is great but I would put a little verb on it. Great job!! Take care. Greg

What a cool and upbeat vibe to this song! I can definitely see people blasting this song on their car radio with the top down as they roadtrip through the country side. A perfect fit!

Thanks Videotrack. I fretted a while over that fade. There was a breaking point where it would drown out the guitar, and I wanted both to be clear. Looking back, I think I might should have made the harmonica part longer. Thanks for your comment. I wish you and yours well. Rock on.

Thanks a lot, Peter. I have had this one laying around a while. I am glad folks like this one. It's only the second time that I've played the lead guitar line on a BIAB tune. The RT's are so good it is a little intimidating to even try to compete. However, now and then I have to get back in the game. Thanks again and Be Well.

I usually like to thank each and every person that comments on my posts individually, but I am just running out of time. We are in the process of loading up the motorhome for our winter trip. I want to thank each and every one of you for your support and comments and suggestions. I really appreciate you all. We will probably be out of touch for a while. Thanks again and we'll see you down the road.

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.
