The wife isn't too happy with this one. Some people just don't have a sense of humor. Oh well, in the doghouse again. Uh oh sounds like another song title.

I played the Pedal Steel and the Telecaster lead and the vocals.

Tommy,

Another good one. Good old fashion Country. It's cool to hear someone actually playing the pedal steel.

Great work Tommy! A sentiment overdue in song! The production on this is very professional, and your playing is superb.

Classic country indeed. Great hook and man, how true. Re FB who wants to know every time somebody's baby pharts, or what store somebody just visited, or what grill they are at? "Get your face outa FB" is much much broader statement than just your song IMO.

As always your picking is great and the lyrics are clever, fun and have a cool message. The mix is great and the rhythm nails the classic country feel a la, Ernest Tubb, etc.

Hi Tommy,

Not my genre, but I like your guitar work.

All I can add is WOW!

This is pro all the way. Super lyrics, I love the breakfast-facebook lyric!

Great singing and harmonies, and I was super impressed with your pedal steel and Tele work!

You have just raised the country genre standard on the forum!

Floyd, Thanks for the comments, I always enjoy what you have to say.

John, Thanks for listening,I think Brad Paisley has a song called Facebook Friends, but I don't know of any others.

Bud, Thanks for your comments,Oops I think I just Pharted!

Guenter ,Thanks for giving country a chance, I've got some Blues in the pipeline.

Floyd, Thanks for your comment about the breakfast line-the whole song is built around that.

Mario, Thanks for listening, I always look forward to your comments.

Steve, I believe I rushed the playing a bit and hopefully I will get back and redo the parts. Thanks for the comments

Sundance, Thanks for your nice remarks.

Pat, TOO FUNNY. Got a good laugh out of that one - so did my dogs.

Great song.

I agree 100% on FB.... posting what you're cooking.... dang, it always looks like something the dog threw up onto the carpet.

I just decided this weekend to discontinue my FB account.... suspending in a few days. This morning I posted to that effect and if my "friends" wanted to keep in touch to PM me for other means of contact.....so far only one has responded.

I guess, If I haven't seen you in 20 years there IS a reason for that.

One nit on the song..... tune the guitar a bit better.

Love the song.

Tommy, the PSG sounds a lot like Jay McDonald's style. He played in The Buckaroos in the very early days of Buck Owens. I don't know what happened to Jay.

I liked your song.

PG Music News
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!"

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."
