Hi. A while since I posted. I'm always blown away by some of the great stuff on this forum.

Most of my creations are demos for the band I sing in, so not necessarily very polished - more to show the guys what the song should generally sound like.

We needed a 12-barrish boogie to fill a spot in one of the sets, so I knocked this off.

The main band used style: _CBOOGIM.STY. Med.CountryBoogie w.Piano. The 2 soloists are realtracks 1868 and 1515 - though there was a fair bit of editing. They're far from perfect solos but, hopefully, serve their purpose.

I've also re-posted a version of Why Would I Want To Do That. This was originally done some time ago. However, the guys wanted a bridge - so I obliged. I've also moved into a bossa style to be a little more like the version we play live. The main style is =BOS60FP.STY. Slo Bos. w/ country flav (65 RT). However, there are a lot of other loops used - particularly for the main guitar parts. The vocal is a first-time - 'it'll do!' - which I'll have to re-record one day.

Both can be found at: https://soundcloud.com/phil-babylon

Hi Phil,

Very enjoyable! The mix sounded excellent to my ears and, despite what you say, very polished. In addition, your singing is great!

Regards,
Noel

Yeah man....that song ought to work well on XM's outlaw country channel. Nice groove, vocals, lyrics and mix. Thanks for posting.

EDIT: Just played it for Janice and she said it reminded her of the Flatlanders. But you are a better singer than Jimmy Dale Gilmore IMO!

Hey Phil,

Great job. I enjoyed it!

I'm with Floyd... Where's the Junior Brown guitar RT when you need it!

Hi Phil. Love your voice. Sounds quite good actually.

I love the 'blue light flashing' line but not too keen on the repeated 'highway patrol pulling me over again'. IE it's maybe too much stating the obvious?

I'm not much of a lyricist myself but I'm pretty sure you might make this stronger with a different punch line or maybe even different punch lines for each verse?

You've got a great voice! and the mix sounds good.

Peace,

Ian
