Uh Oh Oh No She’s Gone


Woke up at six AM

still dark outside

Make my way from our bed to the kitchen

while I rub my eyes

Turn to see if she’e still there

And then I see her empty chair



She said that she’d be leaving

one day I’d be on my own

Now every time I start to say us

I remember I’m alone

When I roll on down the road

It seems like she’s riding along

Then It hits me

Uh oh Oh no She’s gone



Looking down two cups in the sink

I may never be the same

I had my chances to make things right

But they slipped right down the drain

Turn to see if she’e still there

And then I see her empty chair

Super song

Great backing track and guitar chops

I think your vocal should be a little louder but again that is just my opinion.

Tom,

Killer sound. Every instrument stands loud and proud.
I'm always blown away by the acoustic guitar sound you get.
Your electric sounds perfect.
Drums and Bass are superb.
I think the vocals are at just the right level.

A nice "she's gone" write. (the sink/drain thing is clever)

Gorgeous mix.

Great to have ya back!

Balance sounds good to me, Tom.
I like the guitar riff too.
My only sugg is that it's crying out for a short chorus after the second verse.
Just a simple repeat of "Uh Oh Oh No ..." would do it.

For me there’s no better place in the band than to have one leg in the harmony world and the other in the percussive. Thank you Paul Tutmarc and Leo Fender.

Hey Mario, Thanks for checking in. You are 100% spot on on the vocal volume. I kicked it up quite a bit. I got in a hurry and didn't give it time to settle in. Now I hear a few things I could have done better. Oh well, next time I will slow down. Thanks for your nice comments, Tom

Tom,

A very pleasant song to listen to, regardless of the subject of the lyrics.
Your vocals are very good here, like the band.
I liked how the bass cuts through the song. Did Marty helped you on this one?

I enjoyed it very much. I played it again 2 more times. Now it stays in my head for a long time!

Wow, very luscious sound, great arrangement and mix. Very pleasant vocals, I especially like the "Then it hits me..." part. Maybe bit too upbeat for a love lost song, but that is just my melancholy mood wanting to hear the song end with a minor chord smile

I assume that's you on the guitar for the fills n trills. They really make the song complete,(though may be a little loud in the chorus).
The harmonies are ace.
There's a bit of a brittle build around 3.5kHz particularly when the sustained chords are behind the vocal.
Terrific song, terrific performances too.


Cheers

Hi Tom ...

What a cool country sound!

Even though your voice is much different from Richie McDonald's, I get somewhat of a Lone Star vibe from this. David Lee Murphy also comes to mind. I love the full, robust bass line. For me, everything about this says 1995 country at its best. Some contemporary nasmes could also push thisd yup the charts. But, no matter the other namnes, I doubt it would sound as good this.

Good to hear from ya!

I’m sure I mentioned this before. Logic has a built in effect that spreads acoustic guitar really wide. I add a little eq and use it on every song. You know I love those signature licks. Copy and paste is your friend. You only got to get it right one time! Same goes with repeating choruses and harmonies. Thanks for all your words of support. They mean a lot, Tom

Yep, you were missed, Tom. Man, this software is gold in your hands. Your guitars really top the bill, and the story lyrics are just perfect. Harmonies are so good.


Enjoy whatever happens!

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!

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."
