A song for the times, with top class lyrics and a clever tag line, nicely done Tommy. A perfect vocal and I love the pedal steel work!

Nice Pedal Steel, and nice overall style, and together with the sensitive harmony work, provided a really good balance.

Good job, really enjoyed it.

Well done, Tommy. The PSG gives me goosebumps. The mix is very pleasant and your vox is spot on. Thanks for posting this one.

Tommy,

I really enjoyed this one. Even though I am from Houston (I live in Central Texas now), I will forgive you for slamming my hot, miserable, traffic jam city! smile

Some really nice lines in this song. Good job on the pedal steel!

Steve

Oh yeah, pedal steel lives! Nice to hear it. Too bad what passes for top country today has forgotten all about. I saw Paul Franklin and Vine Gill the other morning on Directv -- just the two. reminded me of how powerful steel can be.

This is a wonderful tune, the mix, the picking, singing, lyrics, arrangement -- the whole package.

Tommy,

What a great story told thru your lyrics.
+1 on the comments above.
Your vocals telling this story with the arrangement are first class.

Thanks for sharing you work.

Man, Tommy... I really liked this song!

Absolutely SLAMMIN' pedal steel! And as others have already said, the topic is indeed familiar to just about everybody who works in manufacturing.

Lyrics are clever and the mix put them right on top!

I look forward to hearing more from you

Thanks much to all who took the time to comment. I have been trying to get a good sound on the steel by going direct and I'm not there yet. I always struggle with guitar sounds when going direct. This is all a long term learning process and the good techniques seem to be found by trial and error. I was telling someone this week about the process of writing and recording and I said it's not finished yet but at some point you just have to find a place to stop and move on. Very similar to how I lived my life. Thanks again for the listens and the comments. Tom

Good song, very enjoyable listen.

Re: Houston, I would bet that some families are born and raised on the Sam Houston Freeway simply because they did not know where to get off.

PG Music News
RealBand® Works Great in Windows® 11!

Here's an introductory look at RealBand® running on the preview version of Windows® 11!

Watch the video.

Customers LOVE Band-in-a-Box® 2021!

Check out some of the latest Band-in-a-Box® feedback we've received:

"There's a saying 'Give a man a fish, feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, feed him for a lifetime.' That's exactly what my friend did in 1990. He taught me how to use BIAB and I've used it hundreds of time to do arraignment and to jam with any style band."

"Love BIAB. I use it daily. Their support is great too!"

"RealTracks are amazing!!! I use BIAB for backtracks in my solo act... Still using the basic package and it's all need..."

"I have used Band in A Box for many years. If it would have been around when I was young, I would have been a much better musician. I use it for all my songs I have written and recorded. With Band In A Box I can sit in my room and sound like a whole band without having to put up with them!"

"If you know something about music and take the time to learn the program, you can make it do some amazing things. It is a great help to songwriters who want to demo their song without paying for studio time. It makes changes and tweaks much easier as well."

"Been using it for so many years. It's a great tool. The instruments that I don't have or play make up the void and it saves so much time. I use this program for every song I write."

"Great tool for the songwriter!"

"An essential part of my studio! I write songs on piano, but I'm not a pianist by a long way. BIAB is like having a roomful of session players in your studio, and just the simple act of taking your basic idea and hearing a skilled pianist play it presents so many new ideas and options you hadn't thought of."

"Powerful, easy to use, inexpensive and they even split the modest payments up if you want. No complaints. Lots of satisfaction."

"I added a steel guitar to a fully produced original. He followed every change like he was in the studio reading the chart. Fascinating technology!"

"I have used it to make backing tracks for six CD's with about 12 songs on each. They make a great gift!"

"It's simply a necessity - buy it now - the staff and support do a great job as well!"

"A great tool for us songwriters!"

"I LOVE Band-in-a-Box!"

"I see it as a very worthwhile investment. In fact, from initial purchase about 8 years ago, using the backing tracks I have made, my income from that investment has returned over 5,000% on the investment!"

continued...

Band-in-a-Box® - Boxing Clever - Sound on Sound #TBT

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® is more than 30 years old? I stumbled across this 1990 magazine article explaining the relatively new program, and think it's an enjoyable read for any Band-in-a-Box user - it really shows that we are always listening to user feedback when developing our program!

Read the article: Boxing Clever: Band-In-A-Box Software

A few of my favorite statements:

"The intention of PG Music's Band-In-A-Box package is to couple that speed and convenience with the improved flexibility of the personal computer. Versions are available for the Atari ST, Mac, and PC compatibles. Have the programmers succeeded? And can they rid themselves of the stigma of the auto-accompaniment section? Given the above state of affairs, the first hurdle that the program has to overcome is one of acceptance and, frankly, a name like 'Band-In-A-Box' is a bad start."

(I think our name was a great start!)

"The final results are, to say the least, impressive. Band-In-A-Box achieves something that most hardwired auto-accompaniment sections have never been able to do - inject a degree of feel into the music. It really does sound more human than so many of the computer generated pieces I've heard."

"...I'm quite convinced that PG Music will have a winner on their hands. This is one piece of software that you can get more out of than you put in."
