Scars Of The Heart

I'm getting ready to release a new album of original music on December 1st. All of the instrumentals on it are mostly done with BIAB Real Tracks and this is the Title track for the album.

Real Tracks:
366, 380, 381,434,377
Real Drums: Rock Even 8

Mixing and editing done in Cubase Elements 9

Lyrics:

Every now and Then you find that special on.
The one you want to cling to and love with all your heart.
And when you find that someone you wear your heart out on your sleeve.
Leaving you defenseless in loves rough and raging sea.

Now I have had some lovers who love me like you do.
But lately I've a feeling that you're gonna be untrue.
And I don't want you cheatin' cause it would break my heart in two.
Leaving me with scars inside that are black and grey and blue.

And I'll have scars on my heart tearing me apart.
And the warmth of love will fade to the chill of another day
And all I'll have to show are these scars on my heart.

Now if you're planning on leaving why don't you pack your things and split.
Cause I don't want your cheatin' and it'll take a while to forget.
But I won't grow too lonely even though I'll fall apart.
Cause I'll share all of my sorrow with these scars inside of my heart.

And I'll have scars on my heart tearing me apart.
And the warmth of love will fade to the chill of another day
And all I'll have to show are these scars on my heart.

Thanks for listening kenny. I like the way the ending came out on this as well. BIAB has really given me the ability to make some great sounding music from the songs I have written. This song especially has come a very long way from its original form. What a blessing to have this program and the great community here on the forums to share our creations.

Yes! Travis Tritt. It has his vocal feel along with the lyric and arrangement.

Like that power vocal ending!

Best to you with the release...

Sammy,

Cool title. A classic country theme, a classic Country sound. Thought I heard a little Marshall Tucker Band in there smile

Well done. Nice vocal. Good mix.

Glad you found BIAB (and this forum!).

Awesome man!

Can't wait to hear the album!

This reminds me a little bit of Charlie Daniels mixed with Gregg Allman. And that's not bad!!

As we can see from the comments, your outlaw influences are all over the write, performance and production. This has a great vibe. Really enjoyed this and looking forward to the release of your album. You did a great job on this one.

What a tune! Fantastic work on this Samuel - this is exactly the kind of country I gravitate towards. It's got attitude, it's got a catchy melody you can sing along to, and it's got an incredible groove you can tap your foot to. Hearing this makes me excited to hear the album! You nailed this one, I can't only imagine the rest of the album will follow suit.

Great work, and thanks so much for sharing smile

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.

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."
