While I was in Santa Fe N.M. this last summer, I met a street musician in the plaza and spent an

afternoon trading stories with him over a couple of beers. I posted a link to an interview I found.

This song is the end result of that meeting…

The Last Real Man


He’s the man on a horse

A silhouette against the sky

Riding on into the western sun

Yes he sure can sing

Who does this kind of thing

Even when they say it can’t be done


American nomad

Guitar on his back

Riding all the way across this land

Detroit to Santa Fe

Backroads and lost highways

I just met the last real man


He sang original cowboy songs

So it was hard to sing along

A cattle dog lay there by his side

They threw dollars in his pail

He could surely tell a tale

He was wild as the west one of a kind


American nomad

Guitar on his back

Riding all the way across this land

Detroit to Santa Fe

Backroads and lost highways

I just met the last real man


My given name’s John Wayne

Don’t want no fortune or fame

I just want to do what I do

When it stops being fun

I’ll tell myself I’m done

One last song and then I’m Through


American nomad

Guitar on his back

Riding all the way across this land

Detroit to Santa Fe

Backroads and lost highways

I just met the last real man

That a pretty good song, I like especially your choice of instrument and the arrangement.
Good stuff smile

Nice heavy riff fits this well.

Ryan Bingham, AKA Walker on Yellowstone fits the description of the guy you met. I'll bet that was an interesting discussion over the beers.

Johnny has a cool beard and seems to be a down to earth kind of guy as well. 2000 miles on horseback.... that's dedication to the trip.

WOW this is fantastic

Great story sung to perfection

Outstanding guitar and backing band

You had me from the first chord

Wow, what a story! Made for a great song. That beard alone would make for a good song. Nice work, Tom.

THAT'S LOUD on your website player & no volume control obvious.
Swaggering rock with an Appalachian flavoured banjo.
COOL story & song.

You had me right from that opening riff I think, Tom smile

Quite the backstory! And quite the character, I can imagine it must have been a great time trading stories with him.

Great stuff, Tom, very much enjoyed.

Well, maybe not the last but we could do with a few more in this fancy world.
Good sound if just a tad heavy guitar in the choruses.
I enjoyed that, Tommy.

Fascinating interview. And you brought that great feeling to this song, Tom. A wonderful story told in a great tribute song. I'd really like to hear his song about you. Way to strike up a conversation with a strange stranger, and turn it into something special.


Enjoy whatever happens!

Tom,

YOU are the complete package.
I was just complimenting Dave Bell on his Producer chops (Coast Of Sadness). All that applies to you (doubly).
You write and play at that same level.
Your Audio Engineering is so far past everyone else it isn't even funny.
You get an acoustic guitar sound that is to-die-for.
Electric and Bass POP. Drums, too.
Vocals stand loud and proud and tucked-in perfectly.

Excellence in all direction.

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.

Yellowstone's a great show and an even greater place. It's the grandaddy of em all. Johnny is a one of a kind. You can't make this stuff up, Tom

Wow. Big country song, great vocal, excellent mix, solid guitars...

   "He sang original cowboy songs/so it was hard to sing along"

Ha! And a good write, too.

I see you picked up Waves BB Tubes - cool plugin.

That was a lot of fun. laugh

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Thanks Ray. I always check my rms and lufs before I post. It may be loud but it is within my specs. I’m glad you enjoyed the story, Tom

Hi Tom,

What a supercool countrysong you made Wonderful!
And all that with just a couple of beers and a good conversation.
That surely fits with the title...

I loved everything: the cool song, the cool vocals, guitars/band and your mixing skills.
Played it several times by now.

Cheers,
Hans

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."
