This is one foot tapper of a song and your voice sits perfectly in a crystal clear mix. Enjoyed that immensely thanks.

Welcome to the forum George!! I'll steal Floyd Jane's line by saying "This ain't your first rodeo". You've obviously written and performed a good bit. This is so well done on every level. Excellent work!! Take care. Greg

Well constructed song with a strong lyric and vocal performance.
The only thing I have my doubts about is that 'Newbie' tag!

George,

Very sweet bluegrass sound - your voice sounds great and the story interesting...surprisingly dark! ( lyrics would be nice).
Glad to have you aboard!

Robert

George, man that was slick!!! Great song! Great performance! Great job putting the track down! I appreciate what you have done here. Bluegrass is a style that I have a lot of respect for when it is done right and you sure did here! Thanks, Torrey.

George, great tune, top-tappin' right from the start.

All of the instruments are working harmoniously to provide an ideal balance, and the instrumental slotted in perfectly.

Greg. WOW, Thanks. I've been writing for a while, but this is my first time to ever put it out for others to hear. Your comments are most encouraging and appreciated. It means a lot when folks take the time to listen and respond.

Floyd. Thanks for listening and commenting. To have my name mentioned in the same post with the "Hag", is about as good a complement as I could ever hope to get.

Callie. Thank You so much for listening and commenting. As I told Will, BIAB is allowing me to hear my writing in a way that's doable, and affordable. I don't know of anything else that can even come close. Thanks, Be In Touch, George

Hello Robert, and THANK YOU. Bluegrass music can be that way sometimes, kinda "dark". Off the top of my head I can't thing of any other music genre that does exactly that. Bill Monroe's "Little Girl And The Dreadful Snake" or "The Knoxville Girl" are classic examples. I appreciate your kind thoughts and comments. George

Upgrading to Band-in-a-Box® 2020 is Easy!

Did you know... anyone who has owned a previous version of Band-in-a-Box® is entitle to upgrade pricing - you do not need to have your old version installed!

Maybe you used to own the Windows version, but you now have a Mac... that's not a problem either!
(or if you owned the Mac version, and now you have a Windows computer)

In both cases, you would purchase from the "Upgrade from 2018 or earlier or crossgrade" row here for a new Mac version, or here if you want the newest Windows version. Just need to upgrade your 2019 version? Use the "Upgrade from 2019/2020" row.

When you purchase your upgrade from either of these rows, you will receive a complete installation - just follow the steps of the setup, and your Band-in-a-Box® will be ready to use!

PG Music Inc. shopping cart accounts were not required to purchase from our website prior to October 29, 2014. With that in mind, you may have to create an account in order to upgrade - that's OK! You'll still be entitled to upgrade pricing.
