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!!!!

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."
