I even got a "Hot Blooded - Foreigner" vibe on the verses a little bit.

I liked this a lot. Great work!
Steve, Thanks for giving it a spin. Tom

The solo reminds me of Skinny Leonard. The chords in the verses reminded me a lot of Boston.

Really liked the riff based chorus.

Probably the best hard rock use of BB I recall hearing.

Nice work.

Great song, better than most of the music I hear on my local rock radio station these days.
Dave, glad you liked it, Tom

I could have been listening to Bryan Adams here.

Great driving rock beat. Plenty to like about this song.

As you responded to floyd...rock to blues to country. And you retain the goodness of them all.

Great write, vocal and signature TA production to top it all off.

Hi Tom,

Nearly missed this one!

It's great to see more people rocking on the forum these days and rock doesn't
come much better than this.

Fabulous guitars, especially the solo.

Your vocals just get better and better - you've really got a great voice for this
type of track.

Classic Rock through and through.

ROG.

Hello, Tom

Great Rock tune! Big fun!
I entirely agree with Greg.
This sounds like a 70's classic.
Great groove.
Love the power chords and great solo.
And also your vocals.
Splendid!

All the best for 2018!

Tom,

What an outstanding track. When it comes to rock it's one of the genres that you really excel at.

I apologise for missing this the first time through. It zipped past me and I wasn't even aware that it'd had been on the forum.

This song is such a fine tribute to your production chops, your singing chops, your arranging chops, and instrumental chops.

Excellent.

Regards,
Noel

"tommyad"...

(From the latest headlines, hot off our presses:) "Extra, extra, read all about it! Armada of killer guitars from outer space land on Earth, bringing message of "louder is better", and proceed to blow out our eardrums! See fleeing crowds popped upside the head by perilously potent power chords! Watch rockers being run down by hair-raisingly righteous riffs! President declares state-of-emergency in his pajamas while playing air guitar and lip-syncing in the Oval Office! Could this be "the end", friends crazy ???

Really dug your lyric imagery: "I always look to the sky like a sailor to the sea", and "...like rain moving across the bay", and "boundaries blurred by the path of light". Like, far-freakin'-out, dude laugh !!!

If this is rock, it's certainly "hard" as one, baby!

Off the hook, "tommyad"!

Video: Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows® New Features!

Our "Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows®! New Features, RealTracks, and other content!" video is now ready! Get to know all about the newest features in Band-in-a-Box® 2019: Click here to watch...

We have listed a table of contents for this video, you'll see it within the YouTube video description, or by visiting this forum post.

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.
