A couple of weeks ago David Snyder sent me a message about doing a collaboration on a song. He got the idea for this when he found a bible he could write notes in at a dollar store with a paper cover for, you guessed it, a dollar. He sent me a few words he had put together I worked on some more lyrics and developed a melody and chord structure and put this wild tune together. It's a song poking fun at (me) and others about some of our silly idiosyncrasies about how it's ok to write in some bibles and not others. If you don't have a sense of humor never mind! It's a fun tune I really enjoyed putting together with David (you know he never does anything silly like this). We only used RealDrums from the BIAB programs for this. I played the guitars, bass, organ, synths, percusion and vocals. David added sitar and vocals. We call our temporary group "The Peebles" and we hope you get a kick out of this crazy tune!!!

Drums used from BIAB are:
Pop Pep Squad
Praise Worship Power Push
Metal Halftime Hat
Jazz Funk Movin

Big Paper Bible
Copyright 2018 David Snyder and Torrey Bliss
Verse 1
He’s wanting a bible that he can write on
So he won’t forget when his wife isn’t home
To help him remember what he has done wrong
Or write the words to a new worship song
But a leather bound edition to write on is a sin
A cover made of paper is where he must begin

Chorus
He wants a paper bible
big paper bible

Verse 2
He can’t touch the one in the lighted case
Or mark it all up with what he can’t erase
But help can be found at the dollar store
The place where a dollar buys you the written word
With a pack of colored pencils he’s going to change the world
With notes and commentary like we’ve never heard

Chorus

Verse 3
He’s got to have it to share the good news
With anyone out there who might have the blues
It could be someone at the grocery store
He’ll have the answer to what they long for
He’ll write it on the paper to which he will refer
To seize the opportunity to spread the word
Chorus

Please post the lyrics so I can read for fun as well as listen for the same.
This rocks - that means you did a great job with the BIAB drums.
Since you've used your combined talents & real drums you could call the group Peebles & Bam Bam!
I think this is ace fun and sounds great.
The combination of RealDrums and real insttruments is a potent one.
Well played and sung.
I loved it.
Might I suggest that you pan David's vocal part at the end, a tad to one side so that it's clearer and doesn't muddy your lead vocal?

Peebles,

Weird and clever. Bizarre and cool. Derivative and original. Familiar and unique.

A carnival for the ears.

An awesome sound. Attention getting at every turn. Terrific mix.

Well played.

Well done.

Interesting is an understatement.

Peebles,

I really enjoyed this. I particularly loved the chord progression in the prechorus and the way it pushed the lyrics and music headlong into the chorus... very skillful!

You've both done a great job!

All the best,
Noel

floyd jane said it best - weird and clever.

That was a lot of fun - an welcome blast of originality.

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Wow - I thoroughly enjoyed this! It is certainly unique, but extremely catchy and well executed. Some bizarrely catchy lyrics here. That hook is a major ear worm, and the groove is fantastic too. Your vocals are top notch on top of it all, and the backing tracking is fantastic. Somehow, it is awkward yet insanely catchy.

Looking forward to hearing what else you guys come up with together - thanks for sharing smile

Wow... Torrey and David,

This is really good and indeed... fun laugh !
And "Praise Worship" and "Metal" together, a very special combination for a song!
But it surely works.

A very good rocking tune with lots of Beatles influences (paper back writer reference is intentional, I guess). Funny, clever and creative, great collaboration.

Torrey is a musical wizard and it was really fun working with him on this.

I am still laughing at his performance. It is one of the funniest things I have ever heard.

We also might have something else coming from The Peebles. Ya never know.

I just have this gut feeling that The Peebles can't be stopped.
