I can't Take It No More

Just for the fun of it.
Note this song ain't about me!

BiaB style - AG_Soul - slow soulful gospel
Tempo - 75 BPM
Drums - Steven Slate's SSD5 - Classic rock - FX - Waves CLA drums
Piano - Kontakt - upright piano K5
Strings - B4II - 17 Woodstock

I am playing these instruments:
Fretless bass through Amplitube - SVX - pop fingered 1
Rhythm guitar - Strat copy through Amplitube - Ambience SR
Leas guitar - Strat copy through Amplitube - Jimi Hendrix - SR Fuzz

I Can't Take It No More

I can't take it no more
I can't take it no more
I can't go out that door
Can't go to no store
I can take it no more

I can't take it no more
I can't take it no more
I can't see my friends
When will this end
I can't take it no more

Can't get in my car and go to a bar
Can't leave my home and go out and roam
Can't go out on the town
Can't do a damn thing with a
Police Ankle bracelet on

Lead

I can't take it no more
I can't take it no more
I was really tough
But the judge called my bluff
I can't take it no more

Hi Mario,

Must have been very difficult lyrics to remember! The amount of lines 'I can't take it no more' are numerous ;-)
I'm joking a bit. You did a nice Blues with this one, Mario.
I have two suggestions: 1) your vocals may sound a bit louder than they do and 2) the leadguitar and piano too

But that evil virus is bringing a lot of creativity in this forum, don't you agree?
And that I can take some more...

Stay safe,
Hans

Hi Mario.
I just love everything about this ! The music , vocal and especially the lyrics . I played it over my loudspeakers and was jamming along on my piano having a great time in the key of A.
I am going to take it along to my next music group meeting (we play mainly 12 bar stuff) but rest assured ,I will tell them where I got it . I love your quirky sense of humour !

SUPERB!!! Made me grin from ear to ear. You really are a creator - even when you write songs like these, with more than just a hint of humour to them, they are absolutely top-notch. Well done - a joy to listen to and a smile to my ears :-)

Hi Mario,

Cool little ditty...
The vocals kinda sounded like John Lennon a little bit...
Thanks for posting it...

Hey Mario, I'm sure a lot of people out there fills the same way, I included. Agreed wit Hans, Vocals and lead guitar may need to be brought a little more to the front. Other than that good production as usual.

Cheers

Mike B.

Now that was fun! And decidedly different, in a good way, from most of your catalog.

Cool performances and love the tale’s twist.

You know us ... hard to go wrong with the blues!

Enjoyed it.

Thanx Leon. I'm not really into vocals but every once in a while an idea pops up in my head that requires a vocal. This was one of those occasions.

Gary, I'm glad that you like it. If you wish I can send you a MP3 minus the piano part and you could add your own. Just let me know via a PM.

Mario,

Classic blues feel to this—nice playing on this as well, and a vocal that fits it really well. I think this might be the first song I've heard from you with a vocal, actually . . it’s very good and a cool listen. Good, good stuff!

All my best,

Deej

A Look Back... Band-in-a-Box® 2015 NAMM Demonstration #TBT

Watch Tobin (and Charlie!) demonstrate Band-in-a-Box® 2015 for Windows at the 2015 NAMM Show: Play video...

Tobin does a great job of showing just how easy it is to create a song with Band-in-a-Box!

This video was posted on January 23, 2015 to the Keyboard Instrument Chops and Gear YouTube Channel.

Enhance Your Band-in-a-Box® 2021 for Windows Installation

Attention Band-in-a-Box® 2021 for Windows users - update for FREE today!

We've added a new "record using" option within the Audio Settings dialog, and updated many existing features based on user feedback.

This free update also includes the most recent build of our DAW Plugin (3.9.12).

Learn more about this free update and download it today.

Ordering Your Band-in-a-Box® is Easy!

When you order any PG Music products directly from www.pgmusic.com (or www.bandinabox.com) you'll receive immediate links to start downloading your order! Even if you choose to have a backup copy of your Band-in-a-Box® packages shipped, you'll still have the download links available to you - no need to wait!

We've made it even easier to get started with Band-in-a-Box® with the Easy Payment Plan 4 - when you choose this payment option you'll pay four equal monthly payments starting on the day of your order.

Choose your Band-in-a-Box® for Windows package & order here.

Using Mac? Order here.

When you get to the checkout, simply click on Select Easy Payment Plan 4 for this product to apply this option.

Note: This only applies to this Band-in-a-Box product, and does not apply to other products that you might have in your order, including the physical backup copy if selected.

Band-in-a-Box® File Associations

You may have noticed when you were installing Band-in-a-Box® for Windows that you were asked if you would like to Associate Band-in-a-Box songs and styles with Band-in-a-Box? But, what does that mean?

It's actually pretty simple - basically, if you select this option while you're installing the program, files with the extensions .SGU, .MGU, and other Band-in-a-Box files will open directly in the program if you select them from outside the program.

Missed this option during your setup, but you'd like to apply it now? Go to File | File Utilities | Associate File types with Explorer within the program.

Ear Training Games in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows

October 1, 2021 is National Kids Music Day!

Head to the Practice Window in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows, and you'll see fun games that are fun ear training options for kids: Music Replay & Pitch Invasion.

Of course, you don't have to be a kid to like these games, I think there a fun way to learn at any age!

Music Replay is just what it sounds like - the program plays a 1-bar melody, and the user plays it back. Get it right, and you'll keep building that melody (and skill) within the game - get it wrong, and you'll be met with a warning tone and have to try again... it's quite addictive, and a lot of fun!

If you like a classic arcade game, then you'll love Pitch Invasion! We've managed to incorporate aliens with pitch-recognition skills in this exciting game, where you'll match the pitch of the alien ship descending towards your planet trying to destroy your collection of instruments - match the pitch and you've saved your instruments, make a mistake and the ship keeps coming... you'll have a few tries to get it right, if you're quick, but if all your instruments are destroyed - it's game over! The game speeds up as your skills improve, and you'll earn points along the way, with bonus points available throughout the game.

Open up your Band-in-a-Box® for Windows today to give it a try!

These ear training games are also included in Musical Arcade for Windows.
