That was fantastic Elliott!
I loved everything about it.
I would write more but you made me thirsty so I'm off to the store to get another 12 pack!


Me, it's not about how many times you fail, it's about how many times you get back up.
Cop, that's not how field sobriety tests work.

Brilliant, Elliott!

This is so much fun and such a great idea. Informative and funny at the same time. The chorus is definitely sing-alongable!! Great guitar picking and that's a pretty good job slowing down the production in BIAB. Do you use a DAW to mix with? If so, you should be able to just slow the BPM in certain sections. Never done it to slow down a song but I have to literally change the BPM after a hold bar.

AWESOME all the way around!!

We yesterday read a great article on the history of beer from prehistoric times to the present. And for the record we are BIG IPA fans. So regarding song ... a tip of the pint glass to you!

Great lyric, fine supporting video, excellent performances by you and all wrapped in an open airy mix -- the kind we love.

Fun!

Well done,

J&B

Hi Ellioth,

I will join the words of Dewey, what a joyful song!
Clever lyrics and a brilliant video about beer.
Your vocals are a pleasure to listen to. And when you sing '"have a beer..."
it feels I want to cheer ( a silly rhyme...) along.

Very nice song, it really is.
One small problem though; I don't like beer ;-))

Elliott,

This is great, and yes joyful.

I think it was Benjamin Franklin who said:

"Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy."

Yep, billions can sing along with this gem, Elliott. What a fun romp. Excellent lyrics. Some of my best friends are either bartenders, brewmasters or beer store owners. Seriously this is a terrific sing-along --even a slur-along. Love it right through the jawharp. Well done.


Enjoy whatever happens!

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

It bounces along really well.
The vocal sounds odd to me - chopped up/clipped or something.
The close harmony & unison parts sound a bit phased/wobbly.
Now that may be a case of me listening with beer ears.
Really good writing.


Cheers

The best drinking song I've heard in a long time.
Great drive and very catchy chorus to sing along.


Like Ray, I'm more of a fan of your "normal" vocals, but they definitely work on this song here.

Elliott,
Happy tune and fun lyrics. Solid production and instrumental arrangement. Excellent job on tempo change. Jaw harp was a nice touch. Listens well and thank you for sharing.

I was going for a bar room sing along song. Thanks for listening and your kind comments. Nice comment on the Jaw Harp, I was wondering if anyone picked up on that.

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."
