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!

Get Inspired with the Band-in-a-Box® Title Generator!

There can be many triggers that could inspire you to write a song... but what if you're wanting to write a song, and are having trouble finding the inspiration you need?

Jump start your creativity using the Title Generator feature in Band-in-a-Box®.

I love this feature - it delivers some beautiful results!

To access this feature:

Mac: select Edit | Chords | Auto-Generate Song Title menu command (control+shift+S). The song title will appear in the Title window! Repeat the Auto-Generate Song Title command until the program comes up with a suitable title for your song. Band-in-a-Box® will keep generating new titles for as long as it takes to get the right one.

Windows: click on the "Generate Title" button within the main screen of the program and you can choose to "auto-generate" a song title which will appear right in the Title field of your song, or for a more varied selection choose to "generate multiple titles" and you'll be taken to the Title Generator window, which can generate a list of 50 song titles for you!

I've just done this, and won't bother list all 50 here - but the "top 10" I've chosen from my generated list are:
Eloquent Laugh
Statuesque Luck
Considering a Rainbow
Brief Fling, Acknowledged
Something for a Sandpiper
Happy Runaround
Cheatin' Skies
Then Came a Rose
The Mention of My Love
Eternal Raincheck

Give it a try!

The resource for this feature can also be edited, allowing you to customize the results.
(to do this, review the file TITL1.TXT within the BB Data folder.)
