This song uses a mix of tracks from PG styles DRJON_E and CBOOG1E, two styles I initially couldn’t decide between. But I ended up using the piano track from DRJON (it’s midi, played through a Ketron SD2) and the DRJON bass track (also midi, playing the Upright Studio Bass software instrument that comes with Logic Pro). I took the RealDrums from CBOOG1E, along with one of CBOOG1E’s electric guitar real tracks (the one that is actually to be found on that style’s piano track). I borrowed the harmonica from another PG style's real track, don’t recall which one right now. The only thing I actually played is the steel string acoustic guitar (via keyboard - another software instrument) that’s working against the harmonica in the break. The vocal harmonies were generated via the new FlexPitch feature in Logic Pro X. All comments welcome.

Hi, Gilley !
You really know how to handle them words..... This would be more than hilarious if it weren´t for the serious undertone !!:)) (It still is hilarious anyway)(chuckle)!! Superb blues superbly performed !!!:)) ....I wonder if I dare go out eating anymore.........:))
That's a spot on production and an arrangement that well supports the vocal. A really cool and clever lyric that has way too much truth in it for sure. I got a bit of a Maria Muldaur Jug Band feel from it. Nice.
Enjoyed the listen....and it made me happy that we are vegetarians who eat mostly local farm products!

Wow Gilley! very well put together, never mind that you have me laughing all the way thru. I always think the same thing when I listen the the "medical reports", that's why I don't pay any attention to them. Believe me, you live happier!
Well, alright. Someone finally wrote a song about the nonstop stream of scare-bytes on the dangers of this, that, and, oh yeah, the other thing too. Coffee? This week is raises your IQ. Next week, more than 2 cups and you're crusin' for pancreatic cancer.
Not just any song. Truly hilarious, clever, and right on!
Did you know... the "Plug-in" mode was first launched with the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2010 for Windows!
With the 2010 "Plug-in" mode, Band-in-a-Box® opened as a small always-on-top window, and acted as a plug-in for your favorite DAW/sequencer, so that you could Drag-and-drop MIDI and audio (WAV) tracks from Band-in-a-Box to your favorite sequencer. You could work in your favorite sequencer, type a progression in Band-in-a-Box, and then simply drag the track from Band-in-a-Box to your sequencer’s track at the desired track and bar location.
To learn more about the new features that were launched with Band-in-a-Box® 2010 for Windows, check out Band-in-a-Box® 2010 "Plug-in" mode feature highlighted in our Band-in-a-Box® 2010 New Features Video at 10:50!
The "Plug-in" mode development didn't stop there - With Band-in-a-Box® 2019 we introduced the "Band-in-a-Box® VST DAW Plugin" which now works DIRECTLY INSIDE YOUR DAW (Cakewalk, Reaper, Pro Tools, PreSonus, etc.). Learn more about this feature here.
