Hi all. Wanted to try and write one of those mid to late 1960 classic country tunes.
So this is my effort. All comments welcome Rob.

Dont Bother Me


Ive been living twelve long months with out you.
But then you go and ring me once again.

Ive been rid of all my thoughts about you.
But then you go and bring it back again.

Chorus
..................................................................
Wont you let me be Dont bother me.
Wont you set me free Dont be bothering me
..................................................................

Bidge

Chorus
..................................................................
Wont you let me be Dont bother me.
Wont you set me free Dont be bothering me
..................................................................

Ive been spending all my nights with out you.
Even through in darkness makes me wail.

I been spending day light hours not think about you.
When evening falls your there with out fail.

Chorus
..................................................................
Wont you let me be Dont bother me.
Wont you set me free Dont be bothering me
..................................................................
Bridge

Chorus
..................................................................
Wont you let me be Dont bother me.
Wont you set me free Dont be bothering me
..................................................................

Chorus
..................................................................
Wont you let me be Dont bother me.
Wont you set me free Dont be bothering me

Sounds great!

Sounds like classic country to me!

one thing:

around :51 starts some strings and voices I think. They are beautiful, but if you were to pitch this as an era piece you might need to take them out and just it let ride without them.

So maybe you could have two version in case you want to pitch it as a period piece??

I could be wrong.

Rob,

This is a great song and vocal. I love the way your voice slides into those notes... Excellent job.

Love the fade-out ending as well.

Start with the oom-pah bass, bring in the piano... Perfect.

Nice vocal, good to hear the Aaaah sneak in for a visit.

Bob already mentioned the Roy Orbison-ish vocal slides, but it's worth mentioning again. Nice! smile

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

This is awesome! You definitely captures that old school country vibe here. It got my toe tapping the whole way through, and I can't help but imagine how amazing this would sound performed live. Your vocal performance is seriously on point here as well.

Great work, and thanks so much for sharing smile

Rob, I think you certainly accomplished what you set out to do! I remember those days of classic country music and you nailed it! Your vocal kind of reminds me of a mix of Jim Reeves and Marty Robbins. Not a bad thing at all! Great work! Thanks, Torrey

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows!

There are Notation Enhancements in the NEW Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows! These include:
•A new button in the Print Options dialog which lets you quickly print a "chords only" fake sheet. You can also access this from the right-click menu on the chord sheet.
•A new track type (Drums) is now available for The Melody and Soloist tracks.
•Clicking close to a stave line will put a note on the stave line instead of between stave lines. (Previously, you had to click extremely close to a stave line to insert a note on The line.)
•Double-clicking on the Standard mode Notation window (or on the time line in Editable or Staff Roll mode) plays the song from the current time location. Previously, it played the song from the beginning of the current bar.
•Holding down the [Ctrl] key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
•In The Notation Windows Options dialog, The clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
•Pressing The space bar plays the song from the current time location, not the current bar.
•The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
•The right-click menu in the Editable or Staff Roll mode Notation window has an option to change the current beat resolution. Previously, the only way to do this was to right-click on the time line.
•There's a keystroke entry notation mode - the 'N' mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, up/down cursor to change its pitch, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
•You can now edit any track in the Event List Editor. When The dialog opens, it will show you the MIDI data in the current Notation track.
•You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
