Dewey,

Good song with a great beat. I would leave your vocal as is. It suits the song.

Good one, Dewey. You had me from the title. Peeps would ask how could I eat ice cream while drinking beer. They don't get it. Really good song. Excellent lyrics and I like the change of key to emphasis the taste. I'm mostly a wine guy now and I get questions like how can you drink red with fish. Hey, the husky voice sounds perfect for the message, man.


Enjoy whatever happens!

I saw that title and said to myself.... Self, that is gonna be a good song. I was right. And you are right. Beer goes with everything including itself.

Good song and a good job.

BTW.... I think the "husk" as you called it in the vocals adds the right character. I'd leave it.

Good country write. Some clever lines. Fun to listen to.

Gives tastebuds all their leverage

nifty rhyme, but sort of meaningless, because what sort of things do tastebuds have leverage over, anyway?

Then again, there's a time and place for a clever rhyme, and this sort of song seems just the place.

I enjoyed the listen! laugh

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

I agree with all of your lyrics! Beer, it ain't just for breakfast anymore!

IMHO this is your best to date.

Outstanding song
Great lyrics and vocal
Great mix

I loved this one

I thought leverage fit based on this definition: 'use (something) to maximum advantage'.

Thanks for all the feedback everyone! I'll keep my 'husky' vocals and just clean up some of the poorly enunciated words then.

Na zdrowie!

Dewey,

A strong write (one of the strongest I've heard from you). Lots of "clever". Good alliteration (a tool that many never think to use).
An appropriate backing. An appropriate vocal - they fit the song.
Back when these type songs were being recorded, this one coulda had legs. ('70's or early '80's?... been a while)
A good job on this.


(a quick note - you sent me a PM. I responded about a week later - I was away for a while. Anyway... you have not read the response - there is a notification at the bottom of the PM, is how I know. I'm assuming that that means you are not seeing the little red flashing icon next to "My Stuff"...that means you have a PM waiting.
Just an FYI)

I like the vocals as is. Like others have commented- they work nicely in this song. The BIB tracks sound organic like you are singing with a live band at a bar. Nice song.

This is cute Newey.

Definitely has that old school Garth Brooks kinda sound to it.

The lyrics are clever. I like it!

“Well I don't have a PhD in the science of grape-ology 
But I know one libation meant for any food I'm tastin'”

Agreed! We also say that life is too short to drink cheap beer. Get the good stuff.

That was a fun listen and a fun lyric. The huskiness in your vocal sounded good
Nothing wrong with vocal resonance at all.

The modulation was effective.

Cheers!

I'm by no means a beer drinker, but I like your song, great uplifting arrangement and pretty cool lyrics.
I wouldn't revise the vocals, they fit the song perfectly.

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."
