Play me an old fashioned song


Come play me an old fashioned song.
A tune we can dance to all evening long.
Tune up the fiddle and rosin the bow
Come play me me an old fashioned song..

Bridge

The barns filled with banter the children with glee.
They'll play the Pride of Erin and you'll dance with me.
Laughter and singing ring through the tree's
Come play me me an old fashioned song.

Bridge

The young men are nervous not know what to do.
They stand by the punch bowl and try to look cool.
Young ladies giggle as they wait their turn.
Come play me me an old fashioned song..

Bridge

Now the dancing is over its time to go home.
There will be some fond memories from folks that we know.
So hang up the fiddle and loosen the bow.
Come play me me an old fashioned song.

Hey Rob. Loved that. Sure is a great style and suits the old fashed feel of this one so well. Loved the harmonies too. Well done.

We always enjoying the way you write songs to so well fit a style...and this is no exception.

"The young men are nervous not know what to do.
They stand by the punch bowl and try to look cool.
Young ladies giggle as they wait their turn.
Come play me me an old fashioned song..'

And that bridge is outstanding!

Excellent vocal and production also.

Enjoyed this!

Rob,
you've really found your voice.
Pride of Erin- it wasn't more than a few years ago that I was teaching that to kids.

Hi Bob,

Listening to this waltz made me long to a glass of whiskey, although I don't drink that. It's that sphere you create.
I can only say 'again a good song out of your hands (and head)'. And repeat myself and others by saying you have a very clear mixing of your song. But... I (maybe) no longer say that your voice and harmony sound very good, because I always tell you so.

Hans

Nice work, Rob smile It's a lovely waltz and flows beautifully. Love the slow groove, and thought your vocals fit with the instrumentation perfectly. It sounds really full and the harmonies are on point.

Thanks for sharing!

Well done Rob, thank you for sharing this! This sounds very full and I dig the overall timbres. Thoroughly enjoyed the pedal steel to harmonize everything. Keep it up!

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!
