I can relate to this song! I had rust buckets with bad tires, high doctor bills, and had a few females take a hike. So how long have you been spying on me grin

Seriously, this is a super song. Great vocal, perfect backing tracks, excellent mix and great lyrics.

An excellent song.


I just posted a selfie and all of the responses were get well soon!

You're really cranking them out lately, Jim!

I like hearing you using your resonant baritone voice.

Clever lyrics,

You're sure it weren't your experiences, Jim?
If not, you sang this song as if they were.
Very nice song, bit dirty, but catchy blues.
Gave a smile on my face and made me think again of those high reindeers you sang about around Christmas...

I only heard some cracks in the song. Is this because of the problems with the internetconnection you have, or am I mistaken about that?

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

Jim,
That`s a cool descending riff. Your lower vocal tones sound great...I like how you rhymed "car and "tahr"!
A good fun song.

Dear 'Jim'...

Your Dirty Low Down Blues pleasantly evokes memories of friendly roadside diner jukeboxes, transistor radios, and after-midnight radio shows. The humorous lyrics are simple, yet clever, all at the same time. You sing them in an easy, relaxed and familiar way that could invite listeners to shout out their agreeableness with the truth they hear in them, 'cuz life's like that sometimes, now, ain't it??? smile

Guess I'll put another quarter in...

You know we love the blues.

And we love a shuffle the most.

So this certainly works for us!

Cool lyric vid and sung as blueage mentioned,
"in a relaxed and familiar way." That.

Fun!

Like that low register singing! Good for a blues tune, though this sounds more country. Good one, dude.

Hi Jim,

Entertaining!

I like what you've done. The shuffle is such an infectious beat that it's probably next to impossible not to be captured by it.

As always, your writing is strong and your presentation is just as strong.

You got me smiling smile

All the best,
NOel

The Band-in-a-Box® Flash Drive Backup Option

Today (April 5) is National Flash Drive Day!

Did you know... not only can you download your Band-in-a-Box® Pro, MegaPAK, or PlusPAK purchase - you can also choose to add a flash drive backup copy with the installation files for only $15? It even comes with a Band-in-a-Box® keychain!

For the larger Band-in-a-Box® packages (UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, Audiophile Edition), the hard drive backup copy is available for only $25. This will include a preinstalled and ready to use program, along with your installation files.

Backup copies are offered during the checkout process on our website.

Already purchased your e-delivery version, and now you wish you had a backup copy? It's not too late! If your purchase was for the current version of Band-in-a-Box®, you can still reach out to our team directly to place your backup copy order!

Note: the Band-in-a-Box® keychain is only included with flash drive backup copies, and cannot be purchased separately.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first? If your flash drive (or other USB plug) doesn't have a symbol to indicate which way is up, look for the side with a seam on the metal connector (it only has a line across one side) - that's the side that either faces down or to the left, depending on your port placement.
