At last, after a very busy year, I managed to finish a new one from a lyric sent to me by Mike LeBlanc.
The original lyric was quite light hearted but I cant do light hearted so had to re write it a little and write a bridge for contrast.
I was told, after a hearing test recently that my hearing has deteriorated (mostly on the high frequencies) so I hope I have compensated for that.

Some of "The Band" I only used for a few bars.

Bass 1254, 4020, 1825
Synth 1278
Guitars 1681, 2201, 2444, 405, 2534
Drums Mallets Folk slow 8ths
Whistle 3770

Spaghetti Western © 2023 M. LeBlanc & V. Arnold
V1
I see them all,ridin' hard
and me I play a part
Guns blazin' through the smoke and dust
Lawman, outlaw, it don't matter much
V2
Wearing boots with spurs that jangle
Hat pulled low. Ready to wrangle
Or maybe sitting in a small cantina
telling white lies, to a senorita
Chorus 1
I dream of old El Paso
For Tombstone or Deadwood I yearn
My head for a bounty, my chest for a tin star
My heart in a spaghetti western
V3
i'd live by the gun and die the same
imagining someday they'd carve my name
like notches on the gun of bad men I killed
on some headstone up on boot hill
Chorus
Inst.
Bridge
But I sit in my room in downtown chicago
with my take out and six pack ... and more time to burn
Watching the TV. A movie called Django
Totally lost .........
Chorus 2
So take me down to Amarillo
Cheyenne, Santa Fe, Abilene
with my name on some bullet i ride like the wind
Living the spaghetti western

Hi Vic
Very good song
The song is built up great
Your vocals fit very nice to it
And above all, the background track with its many guitars is excellent
Great job Vic
Many greetings
Andi ;-)

Hi Vic ...

You and Mike put a great song together. The break before the verses is a real nice touch. And the change-up in the bridge is great!

I particularly like this couplet:

Or maybe sitting in a small cantina
telling white lies, to a senorita

I enjoyed this a lot. Nice to hear another one from you.

Alan

Thank you Alan.
The hardest part was trying to sing the title. I had to redo it a number of times. Not sure why but it just didn't trip off the tongue easily for me.

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

Ha, I love that --can't do light-hearted... That statement is in itself light-hearted. I know what you mean, Vic. You do these so well and you definitely have a great voice for the style. Good write, and you know how impressed I am when someone writes songs from lyrics. Man, that bridge is a great contrast. Good write!


Enjoy whatever happens!

The title piqued my interest. You've got the SW sound down with band. Sounds cool. Loved the bridge. I enjoyed this!

Thank you Marty.
The bridge was added by me. I felt it needed one to bring the dream down to pasta reality.
Glad it worked for you.

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.
