Good day forumites....

It's been a while since I've finished anything after our re-location to central Kansas.

We drove back to central Kansas to visit my good friend/bass player/bandmate back in 1995. He introduced me to ‘red beer’ being tomato juice with beer. Yes…sounds like an odd combo to me also but he said it’s good for hangovers…..guess it can’t be all bad.

We’ve recently re-located here so I wrote this song about it along with appreciating life, friends, family and what we fondly refer to as ‘home’. It turned out to be good time, danceable country song which is really not my genre of experience.

It only took me 19 years to decide to record it.
I thought my lead vox was a bit too loud but my buddy didn't think so....so, I left it as is to throw against the forum wall.

Red Beers In Kansas....first song on the list:
https://soundcloud.com/chulaivet1966

Into: 4 bars

Verse 1
Just a boy, another wild-eyed dreamer,
Lookin’ back I had it made
But every night I would think about leavin’
Now you couldn’t keep me away.

Chorus
Big skies at sunrise as far as you see
Fireflies at midnight, the summertime scene
Red beers in Kansas….is all right with me

Verse 2
Ice the kegs, I’ll be there in the mornin’
And fire up the hick’ry coals
I’ve been around and I’ll tell you somethin’
There’s never any place like home sweet home.

Chorus

Verse 3
Back with friends and some good home cookin’
In the middle of this USA
It’s Friday night and I’m done talkin’
The band is getting ready to play.

Chorus

Lead – verse music+chorus music
Verse 2 (repeat)
Chorus
End

A great song of your happy landing, Wayne. Bass players always have the best advice, and Red Beers is a good one. Wonderful harmony and a cool tune for traveling. I'm also digging your YT channel. Stay well.

Rollicking tune, I enjoyed it. Glad you explained the Red beers, I wouldn't have had a clue. Good job.

Marty....

Thanks for stopping by and the kind comments.
Ha....I'll graciously accept your 'advice'...you bass players have it together.

Tunemonger....
"Rollicking"....I like it.
I still haven't had any red beers since living here.
But....I haven't been hung over yet either. smile

Dero13....
At 73 I need all "joie de vivre" I can muster. smile (I would have never spelled that correctly)
I'm glad my voice was acceptable....it rarely is to me. smile
Guess it wasn't too loud in the mix either.

Did soundcloud get rid of the 'stats' button?
I don't see it anymore....looks like they changed their interface because I hadn't checked in on my page for some time.

Thanks again gentlemen for taking the time to check it out and comment.
Have a great day.

Wayne, great "song snapshot" of the life you're returning to!
Very enjoyable movement and real singable--you had me joining in!
Nice use of the BIAB elements.
Best of luck in your return to KS.

Thank you sir.....it always a struggle to talk the self into uploading a new one.
By the time I'm finished with it I'm so intimately involved with it I begin to second guess whether it has any appeal at all. smile

Have a great day everyone....

HI Wayne ...

I played this kind of music for many years and still love it. Loved every word and note. I do not think the vocal is too loud, by any stretch of the imagination. Harmony sounds good, too!

Really nice! Hope all is well in Kansas. The last time I drove across Kansas ... back in the 1990s ... we had a saying: "The scenery was gorgeous ... both trees had leaves on them!"

wishing you the very best. Take care and be safe ...

Alan

Ha....yeah, the organic green visuals are quite different from where we came.
Which was..."Kalifo'nia".
But, small sacrifice and so glad to be out of there for a few reasons. smile

Thanks for stopping by, giving it a spin and the generous comments.
Somehow it turned out to be a upbeat, country dance tune.
It just kind of evolved on it's own.

I'm (even after decades of doing this) still very self conscious of my vocals and the delivery performance.
That damn red light goes on for the vocal take and the tremors of anticipation begin.
I'm a mess.
Harmonies are tough and can easily become mixed too up front if one is not careful.

I'm doing vocals on another one tonight and I can't tell you the takes I've done and I'm still not there.

Thanks again for chiming in and the kind words.
Hope all is well in the family orbit.

Hey....
Are you "that damn Torrey dude" who keeps the bar too high for me to measure up to?

Thanks for giving a listen and kind words amigo.
Glad the vocals are in the mix as intended.
Did I mention I'm still intimidated by the red light when it's vocals time? smile

Hope all is well with friends/family.

Mornin' all....

rayc....
I thank you for giving it a spin and the comment.
I tend to mix my lead vox a bit lower than it should be.
Couldn't be because I'm self conscious of my singing....nah. smile
Ha...definitely "Good 'ol boy" stuff....sometimes these songs just evolve on their own.

CaptiaonMoto....
Thanks for the kind words...it's appreciated.
This song writing stuff isn't easy. smile

Que tenga un buen dia todoa....

chulaivet1966,

Glad I stopped in to listen to this one. Nice rolling country rock sound to this one. Just a fun tune to listen to in the yard, under a summer sky with a cold beer. Very cool!

Kind regards,

Deej

As noted the vocal is at a good level.

Well produced.

Howdy Deej….
I’m glad you “stopped in to listen” too. smile
Thanks very much for giving it a chance and the kind references.
I almost didn’t post it thinking it was top dull for prime time.
It good to know that maybe I was wrong….again. 

Hey Peter…
A sincere thanks for listening and commenting.
I always struggle with what I think might be worthy for my peers ears....so to speak.

Thanks again….have a great day.

Cool tune!! Vibe reminds me a bit of the Dead! My sister told me about this beverage.......she called it a "bloody beer" and also thought it was good for a hangover. Enjoyed this!! Take care. Greg

This is a great cruising song. Something to blast through the speakers with the top down. Clever lyrical hook.

RealBand® Works Great in Windows® 11!

Here's an introductory look at RealBand® running on the preview version of Windows® 11!

Watch the video.

Customers LOVE Band-in-a-Box® 2021!

Check out some of the latest Band-in-a-Box® feedback we've received:

"There's a saying 'Give a man a fish, feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, feed him for a lifetime.' That's exactly what my friend did in 1990. He taught me how to use BIAB and I've used it hundreds of time to do arraignment and to jam with any style band."

"Love BIAB. I use it daily. Their support is great too!"

"RealTracks are amazing!!! I use BIAB for backtracks in my solo act... Still using the basic package and it's all need..."

"I have used Band in A Box for many years. If it would have been around when I was young, I would have been a much better musician. I use it for all my songs I have written and recorded. With Band In A Box I can sit in my room and sound like a whole band without having to put up with them!"

"If you know something about music and take the time to learn the program, you can make it do some amazing things. It is a great help to songwriters who want to demo their song without paying for studio time. It makes changes and tweaks much easier as well."

"Been using it for so many years. It's a great tool. The instruments that I don't have or play make up the void and it saves so much time. I use this program for every song I write."

"Great tool for the songwriter!"

"An essential part of my studio! I write songs on piano, but I'm not a pianist by a long way. BIAB is like having a roomful of session players in your studio, and just the simple act of taking your basic idea and hearing a skilled pianist play it presents so many new ideas and options you hadn't thought of."

"Powerful, easy to use, inexpensive and they even split the modest payments up if you want. No complaints. Lots of satisfaction."

"I added a steel guitar to a fully produced original. He followed every change like he was in the studio reading the chart. Fascinating technology!"

"I have used it to make backing tracks for six CD's with about 12 songs on each. They make a great gift!"

"It's simply a necessity - buy it now - the staff and support do a great job as well!"

"A great tool for us songwriters!"

"I LOVE Band-in-a-Box!"

"I see it as a very worthwhile investment. In fact, from initial purchase about 8 years ago, using the backing tracks I have made, my income from that investment has returned over 5,000% on the investment!"

continued...

Band-in-a-Box® - Boxing Clever - Sound on Sound #TBT

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® is more than 30 years old? I stumbled across this 1990 magazine article explaining the relatively new program, and think it's an enjoyable read for any Band-in-a-Box user - it really shows that we are always listening to user feedback when developing our program!

Read the article: Boxing Clever: Band-In-A-Box Software

A few of my favorite statements:

"The intention of PG Music's Band-In-A-Box package is to couple that speed and convenience with the improved flexibility of the personal computer. Versions are available for the Atari ST, Mac, and PC compatibles. Have the programmers succeeded? And can they rid themselves of the stigma of the auto-accompaniment section? Given the above state of affairs, the first hurdle that the program has to overcome is one of acceptance and, frankly, a name like 'Band-In-A-Box' is a bad start."

(I think our name was a great start!)

"The final results are, to say the least, impressive. Band-In-A-Box achieves something that most hardwired auto-accompaniment sections have never been able to do - inject a degree of feel into the music. It really does sound more human than so many of the computer generated pieces I've heard."

"...I'm quite convinced that PG Music will have a winner on their hands. This is one piece of software that you can get more out of than you put in."
