THis is a new pop country tune I threw together. Most of what's here is one track takes. No overdubs.... roll it one time and that's it.

All the tracks are BB...


I'll have to get the track numbers if anyone is interested.

I was trying to answer the age old question... What do you wanna do today?

Something to Do mix version 2

Hope you enjoy it... prolly the last original for the year.... maybe.

Lyrics

I said hey hey baby what you wanna do
It's a beautiful day just made for me and you
Oh baby, what you wanna do
She said come honey lets go for a ride
with the windows rolled down in the countryside
oh baby we can find something to do.

We can fire up that Chevy pull it out of the drive,
Head for the hills man I feel so alive
Oh baby, we can find something to do
Later on we'll watch the sun go down
Then we'll drive that truck back into town
Oh baby, we can find something to do


chorus

The sun shining down on a lovely day today
Ain't gonna let nothing get in our way
we can roll on out in the countryside
with the radio blasting and the windows wide
oh baby, we can find something to do

Herb, you got a great groove goin on in this. Fun write and really good vocals. I always fall right into this country rock feel. It’s right up my alley and I have played a lot of tunes in this same vein. I seriously enjoyed this one. Tom

Rob, Greg, Will, JPT, and Tommy.... thanks for listening. Yes, this was a fun, simple, pop tune to write and I'm glad y'all enjoyed it. There's a few nits I realized are in it so I might rework the mix slightly and see about fixing those things that are bugging me now.

So.... I fixed a few things that bugged me.

Drums: Nashville even 8
Bass 1717
Piano 2023
Rhythm guitar 1718
Solo guitar 3445

Fixes include.... slightly bumped bass by a few dB. BGV up a few dB. Rhythm guitar down a few dB. edit to the solo guitar volume envelope. Fixed a piano volume envelope issue near the end. And.... tightened up the ending a bit.

Really good song and performances.
The intro was REALLY bright...the rest of the song is bright - it may be the piano as the crispness seemed to UP a little in the solo.
Cool.


Cheers

Oh, man, nice throw, Herb. Everything is so polished. You make one-takes seem like weeks of rehearsal. That piano is perfect, and you let it shine at just the right times. Great guitar!!


Enjoy whatever happens!

Guitarhacker,

Catchy little country tune—like the rockabilly piano a ton . . . keeps the foot tapping; lots of energy in this one.. The guitar solo fits really well. Real strong write and vocal work, too. Nothing not to like here—good stuff!

All my best,

Deej

DeeJ56, Al David, Captain MOTO..... thanks for listening. I've been busy with a bunch of things and intended to reply in a more timely manner than this.

I'm glad everyone is liking this song. It was one of those, "Hey... I have an idea" things that didn't involve "here, hold my beer".

The Band-in-a-Box® Flash Drive Backup Option

Today (April 5) is National Flash Drive Day!

Did you know... not only can you download your Band-in-a-Box® Pro, MegaPAK, or PlusPAK purchase - you can also choose to add a flash drive backup copy with the installation files for only $15? It even comes with a Band-in-a-Box® keychain!

For the larger Band-in-a-Box® packages (UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, Audiophile Edition), the hard drive backup copy is available for only $25. This will include a preinstalled and ready to use program, along with your installation files.

Backup copies are offered during the checkout process on our website.

Already purchased your e-delivery version, and now you wish you had a backup copy? It's not too late! If your purchase was for the current version of Band-in-a-Box®, you can still reach out to our team directly to place your backup copy order!

Note: the Band-in-a-Box® keychain is only included with flash drive backup copies, and cannot be purchased separately.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first? If your flash drive (or other USB plug) doesn't have a symbol to indicate which way is up, look for the side with a seam on the metal connector (it only has a line across one side) - that's the side that either faces down or to the left, depending on your port placement.

Band-in-a-Box® 2024 Review: 4.75 out of 5 Stars!

If you're looking for a in-depth review of the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows version, you'll definitely find it with Sound-Guy's latest review, Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows Review: Incredible new capabilities to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs.

A few excerpts:
"The Tracks view is possibly the single most powerful addition in 2024 and opens up a new way to edit and generate accompaniments. Combined with the new MultiPicker Library Window, it makes BIAB nearly perfect as an 'intelligent' composer/arranger program."

"MIDI SuperTracks partial generation showing six variations – each time the section is generated it can be instantly auditioned, re-generated or backed out to a previous generation – and you can do this with any track type. This is MAJOR! This takes musical experimentation and honing an arrangement to a new level, and faster than ever."

"Band in a Box continues to be an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs, as well as an extensive educational resource. It is huge, with hundreds of functions, more than any one person is likely to ever use. Yet, so is any DAW that I have used. BIAB can do some things that no DAW does, and this year BIAB has more DAW-like functions than ever."
