This is one that serves two purposes, It's a testimony of what Jesus did for me, this year, and the church that I go to is called New Life Apostolic Tabernacle, so the name is fitting with the church.
Plus, it felt good to get the fingers limbered up on the lead guitar!!

I've Got A New Life

https://soundcloud.com/ronniefields/ive-got-a-new-life

Chorus:

I've got a new life since Jesus saved my soul,
I've got a new life since he cleansed and made me whole.
Satan is mad because he knows he cannot win,
since Jesus came and gave me new life again.

The devil thought he had me lying in that hospital bed,
he said, Man, I got you guess what, your dead.
But Jesus came in and said, this cannot be,
because you see old slew foot, he's coming back with me.

I've got a new life since Jesus saved my soul,
I've got a new life since he cleansed and made me whole.
Satan is mad because he knows he cannot win,
since Jesus came and gave me new life again.

I've got a new life since Jesus saved my soul,
I've got a new life since he cleansed and made me whole.
Satan is mad because he knows he cannot win,
since Jesus came and gave me new life again.

Loved it Ronnie! Nice to hear you playing some guitar with some great licks! That organ in there also really gives the song that little bit extra! Thanks, Torrey

Hi Ronnie,

I like your new shuffle - very catchy.

Vocals - as previously mentioned, you could benefit from some effects to put your voice in the "same room" as the backing band. Specifically:

EQ - Roll off the bass.
Reverb - a good dollop.

Mix - all sounds fine but there is a huge spike at 32 seconds which needs to be removed.

Look forward to hearing a remix.

Best Regards
Nigel

Enjoyed the song and the tasty guitar licks.

I agree with Nigel that the vocal could probably do with a bit of work to place it in the same space.

The term "slew foot" is a new one for me, so you made me learn something, too! wink

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

Gospel at its absolute best!

Great song! Super lyrics and backing tracks; you can't go wrong with a B3 and guitar!

Super chops man!

I agree about the vocals. In a song like this I would put a slap back delay on it to make it sound more like the singers of the 50s. YMMV

The Happy Goodman Family goes modern shuffle!

Nice gospel Ronnie and your performances on vocals and guitar really drive it.

Enjoyed it.

Hi Ronnie,

I enjoyed listening to your song a lot...great stuff! I have to agree with some of the other people commenting... your vocal sounds a bit like it is recorded in another room (which it of course is, but reverb and eq can help a lot with fixing that so we all get the feeling that you are in the same space/room as the band).

Anyway, I am looking forward to hear more from you!
Will

Ronnie,

This is a toe-tapping blues tune. Like the write a lot, particularly that “old slew foot” reference. The lead solo is slick. Production wise my only nit is the very beginning of the song, which dives right into the thick of it, without much introduction. But it’s just a nit. And, yes, the vocal could come forward, a bit more crystal—but the song has heart and resonates. Nicely done!

All my best to you,

Deej

Pretty nifty little tune you have there Ronnie!
It kinda has an old Ray Charles feel. Great song to wake up the church!

PG Music News
Band-in-a-Box® - Boxing Clever - Sound on Sound #TBT

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® is more than 30 years old? I stumbled across this 1990 magazine article explaining the relatively new program, and think it's an enjoyable read for any Band-in-a-Box user - it really shows that we are always listening to user feedback when developing our program!

Read the article: Boxing Clever: Band-In-A-Box Software

A few of my favorite statements:

"The intention of PG Music's Band-In-A-Box package is to couple that speed and convenience with the improved flexibility of the personal computer. Versions are available for the Atari ST, Mac, and PC compatibles. Have the programmers succeeded? And can they rid themselves of the stigma of the auto-accompaniment section? Given the above state of affairs, the first hurdle that the program has to overcome is one of acceptance and, frankly, a name like 'Band-In-A-Box' is a bad start."

(I think our name was a great start!)

"The final results are, to say the least, impressive. Band-In-A-Box achieves something that most hardwired auto-accompaniment sections have never been able to do - inject a degree of feel into the music. It really does sound more human than so many of the computer generated pieces I've heard."

"...I'm quite convinced that PG Music will have a winner on their hands. This is one piece of software that you can get more out of than you put in."
