Haven't done a song using BiaB in a while. Thought I would give it a shot. This is an original country song. Used a couple of Brent Mason styles along with a pedal steel style. I only sang on this one. Any feedback you have to offer would be appreciated.

Charlie
so thats what did it for me, is it??!! Damn!!
A smashing Country Rocker with a decent tune and humorous lyrics. You don't get any of that in the "Pop" world these days. Sigh.
The middle Brent infill fitted just perfect and I enjoyed the whole thing.
cheers
ian
ps - I STILL like honey on my cornflakes!!

A good one for those who like country.
But you've hidden some other gems on your soundcloud page.
Very versatile.

Hello, Gibson. Thanks a lot for listening. I sort of piece together styles. I used a couple of shuffle Brent Mason's. Used a rock shuffle drummer for the chorus and a Brent Mason Drummer. Used a pedal steel 120 BPM solo. Experimented with so many I lost track. Would need to go through the list again to see what I did.

sixchannel, thanks for listening and your comments. I actually just started putting honey in my cereal and that's where I got the idea for the song.

Boehm, thanks. Lately I've been writing and recording more rock music but thought I would get back to a little country. Thanks for checking the other songs out.

Pg, grew up on Jerry Lee so he definitely influenced me. Glad you liked it. Thanks a lot.

Charlie,

This is excellent! Great mix & production! I like how you added & subtracted instruments to create a nice dynamic level. Good songwriting & vocals as well.

Well Done!

Greg

Greg, thanks a lot. Glad you liked it. A friend listened to this and he recommended I take out the piano on the front part of the verses and let it build. Glad I listened to him.

A BIG +1

If you had put some of that honky tonk piano this would have passed as Jerry Lee!

Hi Charlie,

LOVE IT!!!! I bet it's impossible to listen to this song without smiling from ear to ear. It's incredibly infectious and incredibly enjoyable. The writing, arranging, production and performance are perfect!

Regards,
Noel

rsdean, thanks a lot for listening and your comments.

dani, thanks very much. Glad you liked the song.

Hello, Mario. Thank you. I didn't have old Jerry Lee in mind when recording this but nothing wrong with that.

Sundance, thanks a lot. Glad you liked the song.

Noel, thanks so much for those kind words. That's the feeling I was hoping to project when I did the song.

Charlie,

Incredibly Enjoyable!! A great track in all regards. Killer Country production (the opening sounded like Garth was about to start singing), excellent mix and perfect vocal.

Loved it! More, more more!!!

floyd jane, I wish Garth would sing this. It might make for a good payday. Thanks a lot for listening and that great review. Glad you liked it.

Hey, Danny. Thanks a lot. I'm trying to think of a video for this right now. But I'm feeling lazy.
