Rock song this time up, play it loud!

The Ghost of Love


The band:

1417:Bass, Electric, RootsRock Ev 100
671:Organ, B3, Background Southern Ev 120
RealDrums: NashvilleEven8^5

I'm playing the guitar parts (three tracks)

Mixed in reaper with plugins from waves and iZotope,
Mastered using Ozone8 and LMC



The Ghost of Love (2018, Chris Spruit)

keep the fire burning
kick some stone for a spark
hold the rope of my boat with one hand
and drag me out of the dark
if you tell me to call the demon
if you tell me to leave the gentle sea
I'll certainly leave
Evil mind
you sell my heart to a ghost of love tonight
of love tonight

just another word of pleasure
and a sweet longing night
in every drop of a precious moment
for the hell of a time
even I know you’re a sweet lie
And I will drown into these eyes
I don't know why
evil mind
you sell my heart to the ghost of love tonight
of love tonight

have a drink
to ease my mind
hit the clock
to slow down time
paint my picture
colourblind

Blue and evil
all the time
I cut the rope
I sell my pride
to the ghost of love tonight

EDIT: Brought up the vocal by 2db as per a suggestion from Roger and also added more reverb. Getting closer I think? Also uploaded to Soundcloud

Hi Dave,

A lovely piece of classic rock.

Great lyrics, great guitar performances, great vocals.

Mix sounds good LOUD on my main monitors. Fabulous kick drum and bass.
Maybe bring the vocals up a shade for my taste - they're so good it's a shame
not to make the most of them.

Loved it.

ROG.

Dave & Chris,

Y'all just keep knockin' it outta the park.

A cool Rock write. Good vocal.

The guitar parts are ALL nice - really nice. Love the little drums figure at 1:54. Followed by an excellent solo - very musical... the guitar work at the transition back to the vocal is super.

Excellent mix. A great listen.

I did play it loud and it had my monitors thumping. What a cool song Dave. Chris’s vocal was excellent. Your guitar work was just excellent as well. Well done

Dave and Chris,

Sounds like 1968 sneaking up on us again! Maybe a little fx on Chris' vocal (a small amount of delay) - just a thought??!!

Guitar parts are excellent - but aren't they always? Of course they are! You guys knocked it out of the park. What a terrific listen! Thanks.

Alan

Had a few listens - great stuff. Liked the ever so tasteful playing and the very professional vocal.

Lovely work all round.

Dave,
Sounds good on phones - great Hendrix-like guitar hook and Chris as always connects with her vocals.
The guitar layers and organ work well together.
Very very good!

Robert

Great to get feedback from you Roger, you are the king of classic rock on this site IMHO! cool

I brought the vocal up 2db, also added a bit more reverb. Getting close I think. I found doing the mix on this one a bit of a challenge, for me blues is much easier to mix than rock.

Thanks again, I appreciate it!

Really sweet tune. So much good stuff in there. Especially loved that tremolo guitar that hides in the background most of the time.

nice work

Thanks, floyd smile

I've learned a lot from you about mixing and production over the last year or two, as have many others on this site. And it is appreciated!

What a tune! This is an awesome throwback to classic rock. Your vocals, the chords, the groove - everything fits perfectly into place here. The bluesy vibes here drew me in too. A top tier mixing job on this too, to boot.

Great work and thanks for sharing smile

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.

Review all the new features of Band-in-a-Box® 2019 here.
