GRIT

woke up this morning and my house was gone
my truck was swimming right across the lawn
called up my daddy "what's going on"
better move fast son been another storm
best not be crying i raised you strong
somehow someway we'll get along
and lord knows i don't need no shrink
all i need is a second to think
   
   cause i got grit, i got grit
   i don't talk pretty i'm full of it
   i got grit, i got grit
   you won't knock me down get used to it
   i got grit

woke up this morning and the sky was black
yelled up at god what the hell is that?
he said don't worry son i'm coming back
i said hurry up then cut me some slack
i won't cry i'm made strong
just like a little light with my dawn
you know i don't need no shrink
just need a second to think
   
   cause i got grit, i got grit
   i don't talk pretty but i'm full of it
   i got grit, i got grit
   you won't knock me down get used to it
   i got grit
   
lord says we both need a drink
i need a second to think
   
   cause i got grit, i got grit
   i don't talk pretty but i'm full of it
   i got grit, i got grit
   you won't knock me down so get used to it
   you won't knock me down get used to it
   i got grit

Grit is a hit!

Everything is spot on. The mix, backing tracks, guitar lead, vocals and harmonies.

Floyd, Janice and that Snyder guy has a hit on their hands.

Two thumbs up.

floyd, David, Janice

Heck of a vocal! and tight spot on harmonies. Immediately engaging and full of (well) Grit....
Top notch songwriting team - and a nice guitar solo from David.
Wonderful work all round. (Hope you guys have broken the back of the Hurricane clean up).

Floyd,
Wow, now that`s a lead vocal to part the waters!
Love the humour in the lyrics.
Super backtrack and harmonies and David`s guitar intro and solo
reminded me of Steven Stills at his best.
Marvellous collaboration.

Robert

Love it! Such a fun song, great write and performance by all involved.

Tip of the hat to David for his guitar work too (tele?)

Collaborations are the best, and you three rock!

Wow - you guys nailed this! It's perfectly catchy, and sounds professionally mixed. I wouldn't bat an eyelash hearing this on the radio beside other southern classics. Not to mention David killed it on the guitar!

Thanks so much for sharing smile

Hi there Floyd, David and Janice.

Yeah, great - I mean, what's not to like?

A fabulous groove going on, spot-on vocals, a HOT mix and fun story line.

I need to play that one loud in the car.

Thanks everybody! (And yeah Dave that was a Tele plugged straight into a Fender Tube Amp, man. No frills.)

It is funny the way this song went down.

I was on the phone with Floyd talking about something else and I said:

"I think I might have another one man."

"What's it called?"

"Grit."

"How does it go?"

"Well, that's all I got right now man. Grit. I got grit and I'm full of it."

"You need more words."

"I know. Let me work on that."

Two hours later I send Floyd some more words.

Floyd emails back:

"I can take it from here."

smile

I love this group. You couldn't possibly have more fun even if you were sitting in a room in Nashville.

This forum is where it's at man.

Band in a Box University y'all!!!!!!!!

Cool song, guys! That Snyder guy knows his way around a G-string!

A little different vocal style for you, Floyd! But it sounded terrific. Good collab on the lyric and whichever of you wrote the music/melody did a great job, too.

Avant-garde Country Rock? Could be!!! I do a little Avant-garde Jazz and this has some of the same elements from a Country genesis.

That was a super listen!

And yeah, David ... "BIAB U"!

Bets to both of you. Okay, gonna go get another one ready for posting.

Alan

Thanks Kenny!

Man, you should have heard the FIRST take.

It was so close to Amos Moses we both laughed really hard but we had to take it out.

But I am glad you liked it.

We have a movie coming out called Monster Truck Cuties and yes this will be in it, and yes there will be a lot of cute off jeans and stuff like that.

PG Music News
Band-in-a-Box® - Boxing Clever - Sound on Sound #TBT

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® is more than 30 years old? I stumbled across this 1990 magazine article explaining the relatively new program, and think it's an enjoyable read for any Band-in-a-Box user - it really shows that we are always listening to user feedback when developing our program!

Read the article: Boxing Clever: Band-In-A-Box Software

A few of my favorite statements:

"The intention of PG Music's Band-In-A-Box package is to couple that speed and convenience with the improved flexibility of the personal computer. Versions are available for the Atari ST, Mac, and PC compatibles. Have the programmers succeeded? And can they rid themselves of the stigma of the auto-accompaniment section? Given the above state of affairs, the first hurdle that the program has to overcome is one of acceptance and, frankly, a name like 'Band-In-A-Box' is a bad start."

(I think our name was a great start!)

"The final results are, to say the least, impressive. Band-In-A-Box achieves something that most hardwired auto-accompaniment sections have never been able to do - inject a degree of feel into the music. It really does sound more human than so many of the computer generated pieces I've heard."

"...I'm quite convinced that PG Music will have a winner on their hands. This is one piece of software that you can get more out of than you put in."
