I heard so much about Band in a Box so thought I'd get it.
This is my first attempt.

Outlaws © Vic Arnold 2014

Intro
V1
Some people say he was a bad bad man
but no one knows for sure
Legends say how Robin Hood
gave it all back to the poor

V2
Billy the kid lost his heart
down in New Mexico
So he made a plea for amnesty
but the governor said "Hell no!"

Ch.
If you want to live forever you have to be outlaws
You gotta be a rebel for a time
If you want to be remembered you have to be outlaws
You gotta be a rebel for a while

V3
They say Jessie turned a new leaf
Thought Bob was his friend
Turned his back for a little while
and his crimes came to an end

V4
A man grows old in his prison ... some say
paying for his crimes
but gets to be the President
because he crossed their line

Ch.
Inst.
Br.
Now I don't know what the real truth is
and time may never tell
But the thing about outlaws is this
and everyone knows well
Ch.

Vic,

This is nice. What a great story as well. Nice production, solid progression, nice fills and solo, and your voice has never sounded better.
I'm diggin this song.
Well done!

Wow, that is a great BIAB first effort -- heck it a great tune under any circumstances.
Everything is really mixed to support the story and the vocal. Great listen.

BIAB (especially Realtracks) has allowed Janice and me to explore genres we never dreamed of. Band members who show up on time, and are sober, and can play about anything!

Nice song, Vic - I like the rebel-slanted lyrics. BIAB seems like something look at. The guys on the Banjo Hangout talk about it a lot, but I've never tried it.

Nice foot-tapper, too. Sounds like you're having fun and what better way to do it? smile

Hi Mike.
Yeah it's all BIAB on this one. Just to try it out.
I will be changing a part or two for real though but I am surprised how good some of the real tracks sound.
Thanks for having a listen.

Holy Cow, Vic. This is catchy as can be both lyrically and musically. Gonna listen a few more times to this one. I'm jealous, my friend. Your best that I've heard IMO.

Hi Vic,

Congrats on learning a new toy. Sounds like you've mastered it, good overall musically. Cool toe-tapper.

A couple small things with the lyrics. Verse four doesn't fit in with the rest of the verses as it's vague where the others talk about someone specific. Also I think the bridge is the weakest link, it's not really adding to your cool story.

The only other thing, since you say "you gotta be a rebel" I was expecting to hear "you have to be an outlaw". Just sayin. smile

Ricki

Vic,

Good song. Great job with the Band! Would never believe that was your first try! You've hit the ground runnin'...

Nice vocal and harmony on this, too...

Looking forward to the next one...

Vic, You're a good enough musician that you don't need to use BIAB, which actually limits your arrangements. I prefer the "live" songs you've done in the recent past to this BIAB recorded arrangement. I think BIAB should probably be used by the musically challenged (like me) not the musically gifted (like you).


Write from your heart, not what you think others want to hear.

Hi there Ricki.
Long time no see and I hope you're well.

The 4th verse refers to Mandella which I thought was clear enough but maybe I could change it to "Mandella grew old in his prison".

Re the bridge:
My understanding of a bridge is to link up (musically/lyrically)two sections of a song with a part that is different to the rest of it. A bit like walking from a room where there's a party going on into one that is quiet to gather ones thoughts before returning to the party.
That's what I thought I'd done in this.

Floyd,
thanks for the tip on this software.
I don't know how much BIAB I'll use on the next but it sure helps on the parts I can't play myself.

Sounds good Vic! Isn't today's technology great. A recording like this probably would have cost you $300 in a studio.

Best, John smile

Dan,
thank you for having more faith in my abilities than it seems I have.
I welcome your compliment but although I can muddle through with some live instruments I can't play fiddle, mandolin or banjo and not much of a lead guitar either.
In any case I may go live on some of those tracks later, but at the moment I'm having some fun.
Vic



It's never too late? Yes it is, so do it now.

If, given time, a monkey can write the complete works of Shakespeare maybe there's hope for me.

Vic,

Love the song, you did a great job, you sound wonderful as usual my friend. I think the lyric is great, but I feel the bridge is a little weak next to the write of the verses, but am very proud of you and your talents.

Tammmy. Thanks for your support.
Must admit I'm perplexed about the bridge now as you're the second one to mention it. I thought it was just right until now.

Outlaws © Vic Arnold 2014

Intro
V1
Some people say he was a bad bad man
but no one knows for sure
Legends say how Robin Hood
gave it all back to the poor

V2
Billy the kid lost his heart
down in New Mexico
So he made a plea for amnesty
but the governor said "Hell no!"

Ch.
If you want to live forever you have to be outlaws
You gotta be a rebel for a time
If you want to be remembered you have to be outlaws
You gotta be a rebel for a while

V3
They say Jessie turned a new leaf
Thought Bob was his friend
Turned his back for a little while
and his crimes came to an end

V4
A man grows old in his prison ... some say
paying for his crimes
but gets to be the President
because he crossed their line

Ch.
Inst.
Br.
Now I don't know what the real truth is
and time may never tell
But the thing about outlaws is this
and everyone knows well
Ch.


I'd have to agree with Ricki. Verse four left me flat (and wondering). I was thinking it was referring to the saying "Steal a little and they throw you in jail. Steal a lot and they make you king."
Outlaw music is starting to get big. They even have their own association now. You might just have a theme song here.


I love words. They say so much.

Hi Kurt.
Thanks for your comment.
Well that's two against that verse so maybe I'll go back to the original verse:

They got Black Jack's weight all wrong
Where'd he rest his head?
In some bloody gunny sack
with a pine box for his bed.

OK.
If anyone is out there, after taking note of some comments I've uploaded a version on Soundcloud with a new 3rd. verse.

Here's the link http://snd.sc/1eFqL24

and here's the verse
V3
Black Jack. They got his weight all wrong
Where'd he rest his head?
In some bloody gunny sack
with a pine box for his bed.
