Ha! That dog cracked me up. smile

Those banjos are fun. And the fiddles fit right in.

The washboard was a bit... crunchy? But it's an unusual instrument, so maybe I'm just not used to hearing it.

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

Fun bluegrass romp for sure. The BiaB bluegrass instruments generally sound really good to me, and this is a great example of how to put them to work. And yes, the dog is a hoot! Pass a jar, as they say!

Thank you guys, appreciate the comments. Yes David, the washboard is one of those very folkish instruments which sound most folks are not used to hear or even know that exist, but yeah, is crunchy.

Cheers

Man, you write in all directions so well, Mike. Yep, I see those ol' cars speeding down country roads followed by the lawman. We know the lawman is in such a hurry to get a taste.


Enjoy whatever happens!

Thank you Marty, good imagination, probably not too far from the truth.

The two of us played in and recorded with several bluegrass bands for many years and we feel you did a fine job with the choice of tracks and the mix. So many folks when they attempt bluegrass with RT's don't swap off both solo and rhythm tracks for the fiddle, banjo, etc. Kudos.

And nailed by the canine!

Fun,

J&B

I’ve often said that the bluegrass real tracks are among some of the best. Good job on the arrangement and production. The barking made me look out the window. Way to stretch out,Tom

Mike, you nailed the moonshine runners theme.
I pictured both Robert Mitchum flying down Thunder Road with the local police hot on his trail and the Dukes of Hazzard being chased by Rosco P. Coltrane!

Great use of RTs and a great mix.

PS - I tried real moonshine once. One swallow was enough for me!

Cop, that's not how field sobriety tests work.

Mike,
fun, good "spirited" tune. Well arranged and mixed.
The washboard and barking surely upped the percentile of your Moonshine. Good mix & listens well. Thank you for sharing.
Misha.

Hi Mike ...

Your musical talents stretch across a wide swath of genres. This Bluegrass done right. Enjoyed every note from beginning to end. The pooch is a real nice punctuation at the end! I like it a lot!

Mike, I'm not sure if you created the Song, or some Moonshine, (or both grin )

Nevertheless, the choice of instruments and the mix are perfect for some Moonshine Creativity.

And Fido having his say at the end is a great way to have a laugh.

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.

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."
