Another tune with my new lyricist and songwriting partner Rachel Cintula, who recently joined my Nashville Songwriters group.

I had a title and chorus only and sent it to her. She sent back the rest of it about five minutes later and asked me if that is what I was looking for. Not kidding. She has also added about 50 songs to our dropbox. Going to be a busy year. Her lyrics took me to a place I had not expected with the music. Love the New BIAB country stuff.

CHURCH GIRLS
By Rachel Cintula and David Snyder

V1

My buddy’s been chasing girls all around
Getting his heart caught up in every bar in town
But when the fun dries up he gets let down
I said son,
You need to find you one with the Holy Ghost
So find you a girl who’s heaven bound
Fill a pew and listen for that heavenly sound
Ah, church girls love having a sinner around
So go ahead and let her save your soul

CH

And I love church girls
It’s amazing how they walk
I love church girls
Cause they giggle when they talk
And I love church girls
You know I do
Oh, God you know it’s true
I love church girls
Yeah, I love church girls

V2

Cause she knows her Lord wore thorns for a crown
Her eyes on the cross, her feet on the ground
With a kind of love that always abounds
A church girl can make your life whole
So find you a girl who’s heaven bound
Fill a pew and listen for that heavenly sound
Ah, church girls love having a sinner around
So go ahead and let her save your soul

CH

Oh I love church girls
It’s amazing how they walk
And I love church girls
Cause they giggle when they talk
And I love church girls
You know I do
Oh, God you know it’s true
I love church girls
I love church girls

BR

And the preacher said Hell can’t get any hotter
I said I don’t know preach
I just met your daughter

CH

And I love church girls
It’s amazing how they walk
I love church girls
They giggle when they talk
And I love church girls
You know I do
Oh, God you know it’s true
I love church girls
I love church girls
I love church girls

David - good song! You need to hold on to the co-writer. I liked the melody and production, but the writing really stood out, "Cause she knows her Lord wore thorns for a crown Her eyes on the cross, her feet on the ground With a kind of love that always abounds A church girl can make your life whole So find you a girl who’s heaven bound" - fantastic. And true. I found one and I know for sure. Really good stuff!

Hot subject, really hot wink Very very very catchy chorus, one I would like to sing aloud, but I think it's better just to hum it smile "I just met your daughter" funny well chosen line. The band works nicely and the mix is good. The only thing that's missing is the church girl choir to complete the heavenly sound.

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

Good song with great lyrics and a catchy chorus, I like it.

The drums are a bit too busy for my taste, but the song itself is pretty good.

Man, you and Rachael work so well together. Are you guys doing your song-a-day thing next month? Nice to hear you sing of church girls in a better light than Billy Joel did. wink Man, you have a terrific selection of instruments to make this good song even better. Excellent melody and changes to bring it to an even higher level. You found yourself a real gem there, David, and I'm REALLY looking forward to be one of the reapers of that benefit. I didn't hear the choir until the last sustain --there was that much goodness going on.


Enjoy whatever happens!

The band sounds good.The chord progression went to a couple of unexpected places, but that's a good thing when it works. And this does. Good lyrics. I think this partnership looks promising. Nice work to you both, Tom

Your collaborator has edged you even closer to the lyrical danger zone: blurring the fine lines works for you musically too.
Good work.


Cheers

Well, I can't tell you on here what a drummer in one of my bands said about a "church girl", a preacher's daughter that he knew.... well, one civil word.... "hot".....her daddy would not have approved..... this is a family friendly forum.

Nice job.

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!

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.

Band-in-a-Box® 2024 Review: 4.75 out of 5 Stars!

If you're looking for a in-depth review of the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows version, you'll definitely find it with Sound-Guy's latest review, Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows Review: Incredible new capabilities to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs.

A few excerpts:
"The Tracks view is possibly the single most powerful addition in 2024 and opens up a new way to edit and generate accompaniments. Combined with the new MultiPicker Library Window, it makes BIAB nearly perfect as an 'intelligent' composer/arranger program."

"MIDI SuperTracks partial generation showing six variations – each time the section is generated it can be instantly auditioned, re-generated or backed out to a previous generation – and you can do this with any track type. This is MAJOR! This takes musical experimentation and honing an arrangement to a new level, and faster than ever."

"Band in a Box continues to be an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs, as well as an extensive educational resource. It is huge, with hundreds of functions, more than any one person is likely to ever use. Yet, so is any DAW that I have used. BIAB can do some things that no DAW does, and this year BIAB has more DAW-like functions than ever."
