This song is based on a true story, but details have been changed to protect the guilty

Technically it's very sinple. I used CDRIVIF CountryDriving 8ths w Fiddle style, but left out the fiddle and replaced it with the associated pedal steel. Everything was imported into Sonar after that.

I'm hoping that the vocals are clear enough, but just in case I'm showing the lyrics- which is what this song is all about.

Well my band in the late nineties were a party lovin’ lot,
With hordes of skanky chicks and they smoked a lot of pot.
But I’m a good Christian, told them I won’t be a part of all that.
One day they gave me soup with herbs, didn’t have a second thought,
But the herb was marijuana; I got high, yes I’d been caught.
I went around the house, found their pot and plotted revenge.
(Chorus) So I went to the bathroom did my business in each stash,
Sealed them up real tight, gave them each a thorough mash.
Put them where I’d found them; think I’d made my feelings quite plain.
It gave new meaning to HASH BROWNIES; don’t ever do that to me again.
I called a band meeting, said I knew what had been done,
Don’t appreciate my morals being compromised for fun.
I told them I’d done something, but I wouldn’t tell them quite what it was.
I said for me it ends right here, but if you want to take a shot,
I’ll meet you after midnight in the hotel parking lot,
But no one took me up; I thought it was the end of this tale.
(Chorus)
It was only weeks later that I heard the stories end,
I couldn’t quite believe how much on grass that they depend.
I’ll tell you what then happened, but I’m sure you won’t believe it a bit.
It seems the cops had done a bust and supplies were very short,
And the guys were getting desperate, with nothing to be bought.
So they washed it and then smoked it, guess you really could call it good (beep)
(Chorus)x2

Loved it!

But it did bring back some old memories! Back in the late 60’s a lot of people were smoking pot. I couldn’t do to very bad asthma. So one of my “friends” made me some hash brownies. They were the worst tasting (BEEP) I have ever tasted. One bite and I tossed them all away.

Anyway, great song, super lyrics and vocals. Keep up the outstanding work.

Two thumbs up and “far out”!

Lol, thanks Mario. I had a friend with very bad asthma who used to make tea from pot. Back in the 60's there were none of the modern treatments that make the illness so debilitating. He said that it helped ;-)

SongPicker Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac!

The Band-in-a-Box® SongPicker has been enhanced with our newest 2020 version!

The SongPicker now builds faster for large song lists (>30K and up to 60,000 songs). The [Song] button (or the [Open] button) now has 3 additional menu items to launch the SongPicker.

- Open SongPicker in Current Folder: This opens the SongPicker in the current folder of the last loaded song.
- Open SongPicker in Home Folder: This opens the SongPicker in the home folder, which is Applications/Band-in-a-Box/MySongs or as set in the SongPicker.
- Open SongPicker in Favorite Folder: This launches the Favorite Folder dialog which allows you to choose any previously used folder where a song was loaded from, and then open the SongPicker in that folder.

In the SongPicker, there is a new “Open in Home” option. If this is enabled, the SongPicker will always open in the home folder instead of the current folder when you press the default [Song] button to open the SongPicker.

Searching for songs matching a chord progression or melody has been enhanced. There are three new checkboxes: "Key must match exactly," "Chord Extension must match exactly", and "Time Signature must match."

Click here to jump to the SongPicker subject in our New Features video to learn more. (32:11)

New "Feature Browser" in Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac

Band-in-a-Box® has so many features! We add 50 new ones with every version, so you may have forgotten all the different things that Band-in-a-Box® can do. Fortunately, with the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2020 we've solved this issue by added a Feature Browser!

How does it work? Access this feature by clicking on the [?] button on the main screen of the program or pressing the / Enter keys on the Chord Sheet. This dialog lists many features of the program and allows you to browse them, find the feature by text filter, read descriptions about the feature, find how to launch the feature, access to the online information or video about the feature, and do more.

Examples of a few situations where this feature is helpful:

-You know about a feature but don't know how to find it. Just type a part of the feature name and you'll see the hotkeys, menu, and toolbar info on how to launch it. For example, if you want to launch the Chord Builder but don’t know how to do it, type "builder" in the text filter, and you will quickly find the Chord Builder.
-You are exploring available features for Band-in-a-Box. For example, if you are a guitar player, type the word "guitar" and you'll see what's available.
-You prefer "one-stop-shopping" and would like to launch features from the same dialog.
-You are learning the program and like to browse or watch videos about topics you're interested in.
You can't remember hotkeys and want to review them.
