Another "bluegrassy" type tune from my RPM 2011 CD (which it doesn't seem like I will complete for the challenge -- what can you do?). I hope you enjoy it. The bluegrass guitar soloist was way better than me, but it is my song, so I made him sit (ha, ha).

BIAB Info: Key=C , Tempo 100.
Started out with the =DOGS_BJ.STY (Dog Samba (130 RT) style, but since it is all real instruments, I am not sure how much that matters.
592:Bass, Acoustic Bluegrass Doc Ev 100
590:Banjo, Bluegrass Doc Ev 100 (Rhythm - Simple)
793:Guitar, Acoustic, Strumming ModernCountrySync Ev 100
599:Mandolin, Rhythm Bluegrass Doc Ev 100
1329: Medley [8 bars Bluegrass Ev 100] fiddle, me, banjo, Mandolin
820:Mandolin Soloist Bluegrass Ev 100 (end of song)
Drums: NashvilleEven8^1-SideStick,Ride

You Start Things Spinning
(c) Emmrich 2010

(verse)
Sometimes I'm up
and sometimes I'm down
and sometimes the carousel
doesn't want to go round

when I get to feeling this way
I know exactly what to do
I just hope my message
makes its' way to you.

(chorus)
cause you start things spinning
and you say the right things
bring me up when I'm down
or keep my feet on the ground

and now I'm just grinning
thinking of all you do
please text me real quick
let me your love just won't quit

(Instrumental Break)

(verse)
now you've heard my plan
yea, i'm sticking with you
you improve everything
and that's the gospel truth

so drop what you're doing
help me pick up the my pieces
yea, hurry on over
my love is increasing

(chorus again)

... and now I'm just grinning
cause you start things spinning

Kevin: Vocals, acoustic guitar
BIAB: drums, bass, acoustic guitar, mandolin, fiddle, banjo

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?
