You put one foot in front of the other
You know it ain't so hard.

We got beach sand on the dance floor
Coppertone in the breeze

Beneath palmetto trees.

Young and old together
Shaggin' away their blues
Everybody's havin' a real good time
Put on your dancin' shoes.

I'll meet you down at Sharky's
Or maybe down by the pier
Anytime past sundown
We'll be Carolina Shaggin' here

Fun tune, has a good beat and definitely would be a popular dance song. Nice one. Which sax was that for the solo?

Very authentic to this sub-genre with your chord progression, tempo and instrumentation and is current with what local talent is producing here in the Myrtle Beach area.

The lyrics are true to the vernacular the SOS (Society of Shaggers) club all up and down the eastern seaboard.

All around good song and I enjoyed my listen.

Very cool and extremely well done.
But I have a different definition of shagging which adds a new dimension to the song.
Cheers.

Certainly doesn't mean dancing here in Australia. Liked the song very catchy well performed with a nice hook.

Great track, Bob.

Yes, it does have unfortunate connotations here, unless you're particularly extrovert.

Obviously, I can't vouch for it's authenticity, but I loved it.

Cheers, ROG.

Rob,

Yeh, shagging certainly has a different meaning over here!!
Don't remember when I first heard of the dance, all those years back, but I do remember the boys and I having a good laugh at the time!

Enjoyed the song a lot tho' grin

Well done, Robert. Good write.

Good harmonies! Fun horns. Smooth...

What about a Florida Swamp Dance song? "The Withlacoochee Waltz"...

Thanks for the listen guys, and the kind remarks. I did not mean to scandalize anyone.


The “Carolina Shag” is an innocuous dance step, and totally unrelated to the British/Australian slang use of the term.

There are even shag dancing competitions:

Hey Kevin. That was actually two saxes. The first phrase is a "RT417", the rest is "RT716". Repeated regens didn't get what I wanted in just one sax.

Bob

Hey Tommy. Thanks for the kind words. We're hoping to get some airplay on Surf Radio (Myrtle Beach) with this one. We wouldn't be able to hear it, but maybe Charlie would. grin

Bob, to make your dream come true, get your song on this local Myrtle Beach radio station and it will be shared with the entire world..... They stream it....


94.9 The Official radio station of Society of Shaggers

btw - Carolina Girl would be a good song to pitch as well IMO..

Yeah, Charlie. That's the station I'm dealing with. "The Surf".

I'm not much of a dancer grin , but I love South Carolina! We lived in the Upstate for three wonderful years. Best people in the country!

Brings back many memories of my 60's high school
days and runs down to Panama City. There sat
a big pavilion with sand on the floor and mucho shaggin'

You nailed the feel vocally, lyrically, and RT wise.

Most excellent!

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows was released in December 2018, and included many new features and enhancements - like the enhancements we made to our Notation window!

These include:
-Pressing the space bar plays the song from the current location.
-Double-clicking on the Standard mode Notation window (or on the time line in Editable or Staff Roll mode) plays the song from the current time location.
-The right-click menu in the Editable or Staff Roll mode Notation window has an option to change the current beat resolution. Previously, the only way to do this was to right-click on the time line.
-Clicking close to a stave line will put a note on the stave line instead of between stave lines. Previously, you had to click extremely close to a stave line to insert a note on it.
-In the Notation Windows Options dialog, the clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
-The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
-You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
-A new track type (Drums) is available for the Melody and Soloist tracks.
-Holding down the Ctrl key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
-There's a keystroke entry mode -the "N" mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, up/down cursor to change its pitch, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
-A new button in the Print Options dialog lets you quickly print a "chords only" fake sheet. You can also access this from the right-click menu on the Chord Sheet.
-You can now edit any track in the Event List Editor. When the dialog opens, it will show you the MIDI data in the current notation track.


There's detailed information on our 2019 notation enhancements here: Band-in-a-Box® 2019 New Feature - Notation Enhancements

Jump to the Notation topic in our Band-in-a-Box® 2019 new features video.

Nudge chords (melody) from the Edit Menu is your friend here, the dialog will give you all the options either to remove or add beats where its needed.

Love it.
