Long as I'm With you
Words and Music by Troy Schiewe
Copyright 2019

Here with you
Know you're feeling it too
We've got to get out of here

Up all night
On an evening flight
Dont care when I'm with you

So in love its true
All I ever want to do

Drive in a car
Don't have to go far

Jump on a plane
Doesn't matter where we are

Riding a train
We could go insane

Doesn't matter what we do
Long as I'm with you


Solo


It's our night
And the feelings right
It just me and you

Smile on your face
In our favorite place
Can't get enough with you

So in love its true
All I ever want to do

Drive in a car
Don't have to go far

Jump in a plane
Doesn't matter where we are

Riding a train
We could go insane

Doesn't matter what we do
Long as I'm with you
As long as I'm with you

May seems to have been good to you...
Another quality song...
I really enjoyed the organ "glue" you put the backing tracks...
It seems to pull the song together in a pleasant sort of way!

A good vocal on your driving song- gritty guitars and the organ work well.

Very nice pop-rock country tune, well mixed with great sounding vocals. The solo guitar is good selection. Nice chording, reminds me bit of The Jayhawks.

Very nice and pleasant song to listen to. I couldn't help thinking of David Bowie or maybe Roxy Music... which is a compliment to you!

Very well done!

What a tune! It honestly sounds like something I'd hear on the radio. Some solid guitar work here, and both your vocals and instrumentation are fantastic. Really sounds like a classic rock tune from the late 70's.

You should be proud of this one - thanks for sharing smile

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Mac - 49 Requests Fulfilled!

49 of your Problems solved? List of 49 Requests fulfilled in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Mac.

With Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Mac there are a lot of new features, 202 RealTracks, and more. We get ideas for the new features and new RealTracks from our users. There are several sources, our Wishlist and general forum, support phone calls, trade shows, etc. In most cases, customers are not describing a new feature – they are describing a problem they have that they would like to have solved.

Here is a list of our features and additions in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Mac, presented from a unique perspective. It is from this customer list of "problems they would like solved." These are not exact quotes, they are paraphrased from our discussions with our customers. They explain what problems and requests they discussed with us, that resulted in the various new features and RealTracks. Hopefully this answers the question "Why did you add this feature/content?"

So, without further ado, here are the 49 requests/problems that we (hopefully) have solved with the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2019. We hope that many of them are relevant to you as well. And please keep suggesting new ones, we appreciate that.

Q. Almost all of my music apps are 64 bit, as is my Mac OS. But Band-in-a-Box® is 32 bit. And Apple's next OS, Catalina 10.15 is set to be released in October 2019 (the beta is available now), and that won't even run 32-bit apps! Can you make a 64 bit version?
A. Yes, we’ve done this with Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Mac. The app is 64 bit and the executable name is still Band-in-a-Box®.app (if you have an older 32-bit version it will get automatically renamed during the install to Band-in-a-Box®-32bit.app ).

Q. I have 64 bit plugins that I want to use with Band-in-a-Box®. But they only work with 64 bit apps. Can I use them with Band-in-a-Box® 2019, without having to use any special software for this?
A. Yes, 64 bit Plugins work natively with the 64 bit version of Band-in-a-Box® 2019. This means you can use your 64 bit plugins, including ones that use huge amounts of memory (more than 2GB).

Q. Does Band-in-a-Box® 2019 work on the latest OS, Catalina 10.15, as that has many changes?
A. Yes, Band-in-a-Box® 2019 is 64-bit and runs great on Catalina (and older OS's down to and including 10.6.8 Snow Leopard)

Q. I like Snow Leopard as an OS (10.6.8), will Band-in-a-Box® 2019 still run on that with all features working?
A. Yes, Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64 bit version runs great on older OS's including Snow Leopard, and has identical features and operation to the newer OS's
