A little Country Swamp Rock.

And another dangerous woman...



DANGEROUS

everyone said she was trouble
you really need to leave it alone
call it a day walk away
some sins can't be atoned
she'll take you down so deep
you'll never make it back
word is the devil tried
and even that boy cracked
the girl is dangerous

   cross that line
   you'll leave behind
   your heart, your mind, your soul
   it's a long hard fall
   she'll take it all
   and you'll lose all control
   you got it bad
   any chance you had
   long ago was lost
   the girl is dangerous

i thought i could handle
anything she threw my way
little did i know
the tricks that girl could play
those emerald eyes
that hypnotize
an intoxicating kiss
aiming every whisper at my heart
she never seemed to miss
the girl is dangerous

   cross that line
   you'll leave behind
   your heart, your mind, your soul
   it's a long hard fall
   she'll take it all
   and you'll lose all control
   you got it bad
   any chance you had
   long ago was lost
   the girl is dangerous

   i crossed that line
   left behind
   my heart, my mind, my soul
   a long hard fall
   she took it all
   and i lost all control
   i got it bad
   any chance i had
   long ago was lost
   the line's been crossed
   the girl is dangerous

This sounds like a real classic.
Every thing hits the mark.
What else is there to expect from a talented
musician.

Superb use of Band In A Box and Loops (assume drums -anything else?) to create an amazing cohesive sound.

Great song (as expected) loved the style & powerful vocals.

Love to know how you put that one together!

Truly excellent!

Peter

Well now!
That's some damn good work.
Great production from top to bottom.

Something about dangerous women, ain't there.
I've got one on that subject I'll post some day.

Floyd, your use of the realtracks in this tune are the best I can remember listening to since I've been around here! You must have spent a tremendous amount of time sorting these out! I can't hear ANYTHING that sounds "off" in any way! It's such a clean production and everything falls into place perfectly! If PG Music doesn't use this as a promo tool for their product, they are really missing a great opportunity as far as I'm concerned! Thanks, Torrey

Wow! This is as good as it gets! My new favorite of yours (and that's saying a lot!)

Great use of RT's and loops. Your vocals are as good as ever. Particularly like your bgv's. Very well done!

Great write!

Steve

Love the intro - it set up the song and hooks me right away.

Super fun listen - well sung, interesting instrument parts, catchy rhymes, cool harmony. Sounds a bit like an extended theme song for television show.

Man, you've got a hot band there! (And the singer's not bad either laugh ).

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

Hi Floyd,

As a big fan of guys like CCR, Tony Joe White, Redbone and many others, this hit me right between the pick-ups. I loved it. And I love it when I play a song that has me turning the volume up to 10 right away. smile

Your vocal slides over the lyrics like molasses on a hot day, every nuance perfectly fits each line. And the production is awesome. Great job.

Keep 'em coming Swamp Thing! smile

All the best

Martin

Up there with your best, Floyd.

Band members really did justice to your delivery.

Lyrics are top class.

Hi floyd,

Now *this* is my type of country, something with a little attitude! Sort of a Steve Earle vibe happening.

Great intro! And those drums! Love the kick, snare too; great groove and sitting in the mix loud and proud.

Nice job mixing the guitars, the way you have them panned sounds fabulous through the phones; a little conversation happening there between them.

Good idea using two different bass realtracks! It's never crossed my mind to do that, but it works a treat to give the chorus a distinct feel.

And of course love your vocal and writing:

"she'll take you down so deep
you'll never make it back
word is the devil tried
and even that boy cracked
the girl is dangerous"

Nice!

Great start to 2020!

What a tune - love the vocals on this. Perfectly written, and delightfully catchy. Top notch work on the mixing job too. I wouldn't bat an eyelash if I heard this on the radio.

Thanks for sharing!

Holy cow, Floyd! To paraphrase the late George Jones, "We heard there was a fast train, coming out of Florida."

Thanks, Peter. The drums are loops. And the banjo and some guitars.

Floyd,
An amazingly tight band on a cool edgy song that`s still so darn catchy.
The use of loops and editing nuance is nothing short of benchmark use of the software...
I`d love to see you make another video on your process ( heck, this is good enough PG Music might want to think about a contractual arrangement for sharing the wisdom!).
Loved it.

Robert

I'd never guess these were RTs and loops, amazing! Some sins can't be atoned, great line. Sounds like a hit song to me, once you add those superb vocals. Running out of superlatives over here.

An FJ classic.
You've wrangled the loops & RTs superbly.
What stands out, for me, is the vocal recording.
It sounds pristine but I'm sure you've done some work on the tracks.
Any tricks n tips re vocal tracking & treatment you'd care to offer the world?

PG Music News
RealBand® Works Great in Windows® 11!

Here's an introductory look at RealBand® running on the preview version of Windows® 11!

Watch the video.

Customers LOVE Band-in-a-Box® 2021!

Check out some of the latest Band-in-a-Box® feedback we've received:

"There's a saying 'Give a man a fish, feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, feed him for a lifetime.' That's exactly what my friend did in 1990. He taught me how to use BIAB and I've used it hundreds of time to do arraignment and to jam with any style band."

"Love BIAB. I use it daily. Their support is great too!"

"RealTracks are amazing!!! I use BIAB for backtracks in my solo act... Still using the basic package and it's all need..."

"I have used Band in A Box for many years. If it would have been around when I was young, I would have been a much better musician. I use it for all my songs I have written and recorded. With Band In A Box I can sit in my room and sound like a whole band without having to put up with them!"

"If you know something about music and take the time to learn the program, you can make it do some amazing things. It is a great help to songwriters who want to demo their song without paying for studio time. It makes changes and tweaks much easier as well."

"Been using it for so many years. It's a great tool. The instruments that I don't have or play make up the void and it saves so much time. I use this program for every song I write."

"Great tool for the songwriter!"

"An essential part of my studio! I write songs on piano, but I'm not a pianist by a long way. BIAB is like having a roomful of session players in your studio, and just the simple act of taking your basic idea and hearing a skilled pianist play it presents so many new ideas and options you hadn't thought of."

"Powerful, easy to use, inexpensive and they even split the modest payments up if you want. No complaints. Lots of satisfaction."

"I added a steel guitar to a fully produced original. He followed every change like he was in the studio reading the chart. Fascinating technology!"

"I have used it to make backing tracks for six CD's with about 12 songs on each. They make a great gift!"

"It's simply a necessity - buy it now - the staff and support do a great job as well!"

"A great tool for us songwriters!"

"I LOVE Band-in-a-Box!"

"I see it as a very worthwhile investment. In fact, from initial purchase about 8 years ago, using the backing tracks I have made, my income from that investment has returned over 5,000% on the investment!"

continued...

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."
