I wrote this one this week after getting a "Butt Dial." Not from an ex-girfriend (wife wouldn't approve).

https://soundcloud.com/born26s/butt-dial

Used BnB (BOOGBRT style), I added some Acoustic. Mixed in Pro Tools

To answer the accidental call from the ex or not - out of the box thinking - funny. Nice choice of instruments too.

Ditto!

The harmonies came in a little hot on my earphones, but it could be my cheap cans.

Jim,

Clever idea! With the perfect instrumentation. The "group harmony" was great - but it needed just a touch of variation - it sounded like "a good take" repeated every time - get 2 good takes and alternate them throughout (just an opinion...).

I liked the way you used the lead guitar throughout the song...

Enjoyable. Keep 'em comin'.

Very cool lyrics, melody and arrangement. I could hear Ronnie Dunn doing it.

I do agree with the above harmony comments. A little hot for my mixing tastes (very subjective) and perhaps could be varied somewhat....but those are just my nits. Thanks for posting it!

Review - Loops-with-Style PAK 2 for Band-in-a-Box® 2020

"Dr. Dave" Walker is at it again! You may remember his recent reviews of both Band-in-a-Box 2020 for Mac and Xtra Styles PAK 9 - now he has something to say about our Loops-with-Style PAK 2 - check it out: Click here to read...

With money being tight for most musicians, this is a wonderful gift for those on a limited budget. At $29, it offers months and years of fun and experimentation, bringing many ideas to fruition as songs with enough variation so that your audience doesn’t jump to "aw, that's a computer!" while still keeping the power of the software in your hands.
-"Dr. Dave" Walker

Thank you again Dr. Dave for the great review!

I set up an eight bar progression with some simple pushes, shots, holds, and rests for reference. Then I started auditioning styles--Three hours later, I am invigorated, inspired, and just plain smiling big. Really CHOICE! From "down to earth" to eclectic, this is a really fun pak.

Great job, folks!
