Hey Everyone. Been a long time since I've used BIAB.

This is my first country song attempt. I'm not great at keeping notes but it was a Country boogie CBOOGMD tracks that I used.

Thanks for listening.

Jeff

Hi Jeff ...

For a first attempt at country, you did a good job with this one. It sounds like you've been doing it for a while. I don't know who your singer is, but she did a real nice job for you. Enjoyed my listen a lot. Good luck with the song!

Wishing you the very best. Be safe ...

Alan

Hey Alan,
Thanks for listening and the kind words. Yeah the singer was really good. I got her through studiopros.com
My GF added the harmonies.

Hey I was listening to your loops. Did you include your own guitar playing on those loops and then fill in with the BIAB or were the guitars BIAB as well?

I also like your jazz loops.
I played around with those too with a chord progression and liked it so much I ended up putting some words on top of it. Take a listen as I think you may like it. The vocalist was from studiopros as well.

Hi Jeff ...

You are welcome. I enjoyed my listen a lot.

Regarding my loops ... most of them are BIAB RTs but a few of them are mine. I have Focal Dystonia, a disease that has significantly hindered my playing ability. It makes my fingers stiff and want to curl inward. So I don't do very much of my own guitar work these days. Just part of getting old ... I'll be 74 on my next birthday. But I made lots of money playing guitar for over 50 years, so no complaints!

I listen to your song ... really nice! Smooth and sexy! And you hired a good singer for the job. The song is nice in every way.

Best to you ...

Alan

WOW you should do more like this! The vocals are outstanding. I really liked the lyrics. You backing tracks and mix are super.

I'm not sure that I would call this country but whatever, this is an excellent song.


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

Excellent song! Very appealing. Besides the good lead singer, the background singer is good too. Sounds pro.

Really well done! Wouldn't have guessed it was a firm time for you, making a country song. Sounds really natural smile I love how smooth it is, and thought the singer did a great job.

That's pretty cool country pop song. Well done.... I could hear Taylor Swift singing this at the beginning of her career.

The vocals were super sweet and right in key. Nice BGH work too by your GF. I'd be curious to hear her singing lead as she did a really nice job on backup.

Nits...

The kick was mixed nicely until the chorus. At that point something happens and it becomes way more prominent. It stays that way. Curious what happened there.

Second thing I noticed was that the vocals were a few dB too hot. They could have been backed off a tad to sit better in the mix. There's also some plosives on the P in peanuts.

None of those are buzz-kills, just nits, that if addressed would make this a really nice listen.

Hey thank you for listening. Glad you liked it.

I know the vocals were a bit in front of the mix because my co-writers in Nashville wanted to pitch the song to someone and wanted the vocals clear.
I think the instruments were a little low in the mix.
I'll check the drums. My GF mentioned it too. Might have had ear fatique.

I should probably remix this now that they have their pitch mix.

Thanks again for notes.

Jeff

Not very country - a classic bit of late 60s pop I reckon.
The harmony vocals are as cool as the leads.
Well done.


Cheers

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.
