Thanks to Josie who was listening to my tracks over at Reverbnation, she reminded me of a total BIAB tune that I did which is a remix of an acoustic tune I do live. I wrote the song just because. People kept saying my tunes were dark so I figured I'd lighten it up and wrote "Big Wad o Gum"

388 Bass Electric Metal
629 Guitar Electric Rhythm PopAmericanDirty
RealDrums=NashvilleEven8^6
632 Guitar, Electric Rhythm PopAmericanMuted
406 Guitar Acoustic, Strumming
422 Guitar, Electric Soloist, Blues

Again, I sliced up the Soloist Blues Track to create a solo better suited to the feel of the tune (more space and dynamics) Created a few new chops as well smile

Enjoy!

I guess one can find inspiration for a song in anything.....

funny song and a reminder to dispose of your gum properly, and that doesn't mean spitting it out in a parking lot on a hot day.


Musically, the vocals sound really good. The tempo seems a bit too fast for the guitar solo style that you used.

Slow it down, change the style to blues and sing about that nasty wad stuck to your foot.....

Funny write!

A good vocal and good overall mix with a bunch of good solo licks throughout.

Funny and clever. Good job on the splicing. I know how tedious that it is. Often takes me parts of 12-15 regens to get it "right."

The vocal really works and is well featured on the tune. I can hear it wafting through the air in a Wally Mart parking lot. smile

Thanks for the thoughts!

I laughed when I first read your post. This tune IS slowed down ;-D But, your point is well taken.

Thanks again for the input!

Hi Greg! Interesting story: One time after a gig, while breaking down, a gentleman came up to me and began to praise "Big Wad O Gum" as a profound, deep song, and how it meant so much to him. He was serious as well. He was talking about symbolism and more. Not dark, but, definitely something more than what I intended. ;-)

Appreciate the thoughts!

Sounds like something Talking Heads would do and even the vocals are in a similar style. I enjoyed that.
good fun song,

Hey Mike,

Is there anyone who can't relate to this? I doubt it! Funny and entertaining. That bass line just kept driving this one home! Nicer work!!!!

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!
