Hi all, been gone too long and have missed out on a whole lot. Even for got how to do quick links LOL... Getting old doesn't help either.

My first post on Soundcloud.

WHISKEY WITH THE DEVIL, Was all done in BIAB and Real Band. With all real tracks. I wrote it sometime ago and can't find all the lyrics right now, but they are pretty clear in the track I think. Country Ballad style, Thanks in advance for any listens.

Rob

Rob, I really like this. Very well written and sung with great conviction. Nice ending. The dobro fits in very well. I love this kind of country melody. It is very familiar but also brand new. A great listen. Don’t stay away so long, Tom

Thanks Tom,
Seems like I'm always busy since I retired. Often it's because I'm working on my next soon to be rejected #1 hit, Lol....

Rob,

Nice! A truly classic Country song in all regards - the subject, the production and classic Country vocals (quite Haggard-sounding). Nice harmonies, too...

A very good write. Classic.

Very good mix, too.

Enjoyed the listen! Really well done.

Rob,

Nice to hear a traditional country song, particularly when this it’s well-written and well put together. Love the dobros. And while it’s “traditional,” it nonetheless sounds really fresh. Sad, but compelling and thoroughly engaging listen. Nicely done!

Best regards,

Deej

Yes indeed. A good old country song from the heart.

I've drank whiskey with the devil a few times. He always refused to sign the contract in his blood.

Yep. Good song.

Classic country, the kind I love.

This should be played on the so called country radio stations around here.

I could picture Haggard, Strait, or George Jones singing this masterpiece!

Great work on this one.

i LOVE the high harmony part and how it fits so sweetly.
there are a couple of very essy spots that could use a little volume automation to take away the sting but, otherwise, it's a really good song well delivered.

Thanks for reminding all just how good "classic" country can be.

This has everything we look for ... a good write and a vocal that is
both heartfelt and soulful.

Well done!

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!
