NOW I GOT ANOTHER MAN WANTING TO PLAY
WHY DONCHA SCAT, THINK ABOUT THAT

OR MAYBE I WILL, YEAH, I’LL SCAT

YEAH, IT’S TIME FOR YOU TO SCAT! SCAT!
MOVE ON NOW, MOVE ON, THAT’S WHERE IT’S AT
MOVE ON NOW I AIN’T GONNA BE YOUR DOORMAT
WHY DONCHA SCAT SCAT THINK ABOUT THAT
YEAH, MOVE ON NOW, I AIN’T GONNA BE YOUR DOORMAT
WHY DONCHA SCAT, SCAT, MMMMM, THINK ABOUT THAT

Very nice. I love your voice. Nice guitar solo. You've got that Clapton woman tone. Sweet.

Think about that... I like the solo of that Scat!

Very cool bluezy jazz or jazzy blues. Do not know where is that line of separation. Besides that everything is great on it from guitar to vocals to production, I do have a comment. I think that Janice should do more of these "chance" solos and more of these silly little ditties smile This is true music.


Thank you!

Misha.

Well done Janice, Bud, and Peter! This was wonderful and I found this very easy to listen. The vibe was very appealing and has a good tone on the guitar. The vocals harmonize well with the other instruments. Great collaboration!

I suppose telling you that I was smiling and bobbing my head along the entire time wouldn't suffice as a comment?

Where I'm struggling is I'm trying to put into words what I really liked about the guitar that has no words and the scatting which aren't words either.

Is it enough just to say this song is all about feel and that's what it does exceptionally well! I absolutely loved it. It was fun to listen to. The solos were fantastic as where the production and just writing overall to showcase the talent.

Great job you three!

Very cool intro. Backtrack really gets you boppin. Janice's vocal was superb. The scatting was awesome. Peters solo was also very cool. Nice collaboration

Hey, we much appreciate that review! And thanks for mentioning her “solo.” She did it on one take. I’ve been suggesting to her that she have a go at scatting. She’s always singing guitar parts smile

Always nice to hear this familiar rock'n'roll formula well produced and with excellent vocals, that scat is refreshing addition.

Hi Janice, Bud and Peter.
This shuffle blues sounds as it was a very high quality live session. Christian

Well, how much fun was that?!

Loved this from start to finish.

That "WHY DONCHA SCAT, SCAT, THINK ABOUT THAT" line is a nice hook, stays with you after the song is over.

The scat is awesome (overused word I know, but it fits), and Peter as usual is right on the money with his guitar work.

And as usual the mix is perfection.

Nice one you three!

Hey, thanks for those remarks. And, yes, feel is THE word. Three chords like this or more complex...what matters to us in singing and playing in any genre is feel - soul. We may not be able to well articulate it but we know when it ain’t there! We appreciate your thoughts.

Janice, Bud & Peter,

What an awesome song! Some great guitar and production. Love the rhythm of this tune...

Of course, the vocal is outrageously good - Janice has all the scatting swagger of Carmen McRae - just so good!

Loved it all!

Bob

Band-in-a-Box® - What People Are Saying...

Wow, check out the latest feedback from Band-in-a-Box® users!

"I have one song I've been torturing over to get the sound right for quite some time and I merely keyed in the chords and what BB generated is awesome. Just what I hoped that song would sound like. What had taken me months to get right (and couldn't), the program could do in about an hour - AMAZING!"

"Great Ear Training Exercises! And I love that that you can set the tempo to whatever you choose. It's great for learning a tune!"

"A very good and easy to use musical program!"

"It's amazingly easy to use! Write a song? No problem! Add background sound track to a video? No problem! Put notes on a staff and have BB make up a chord progression and tell what key you are in? No problem! Start with a chord progression and have BB make a melody line? No problem!"

"Still the best practice tool I have found, great for running lines, improvising over and really helpful for working on song writing ideas as well! Good for beginners, and the more musical skill and knowledge you have the more you will get out of the software."

"I create demo songs with Band-in-a-Box, it helps me to get my ideas across to my engineer!"

"Been using Band-in-a-Box for years. Outstanding product from a great company!"

"It's like buying a Musical History Jukebox. It comes with probably 3000 styles and is like hiring session musicians to play rhythm with you, they even have soloists! It introduces you to so many types of rhythms that you other wise would know nothing about. "

"Paul McCartney said you gotta have a great band behind you. Well, Band-in-a-Box is my band."

"It's as easy as typing in the chords, choosing your style, instruments, etc., and off you go! Learning the tune? You can slow it down while you work on it then speed it up. My favorite analogy is a good chess program, which will play at your speed and level and is eternally patient!"

"I love my Band in a box, it does so much! Besides all the RealTracks and song ideas, it's a great tool to stay sharp with your licks. Social distancing got you down? Can't jam with friends? Pick out any song and go to the mixer button, there you can mute any instrument that's playing so you can jump right in and play along!"

"I love it. I'm a drummer, and Band-in-a-Box really keeps me on my toes!"

"The DAW plugin is really great. Trust me on this. I use it with Studio One.

"This is how I've been able to gig solo for the past 20 years. Band-in-a-Box is the great equalizer for us none rhythm players."

"Wouldn't want to be without it! One of the best things I bought in my life. Simple as that."

"As a songwriter I really love to work with Band-in-a-Box. The only limitation is your own creativity."

"I've used Band-in-a-Box for 25 years and thanks to this program and the advice of PG Music staff I've written over 100 songs. It's great software and amazing help to me as a musician. CONGRATS!!!"

Thank you for all the amazing feedback!
