Yes, I have done a Google search. Thanks, Dan

There must be a simpler version of that? I can't even figure out the key on that one and there are way too many chords involved. Somebody must know a simpler version? ,4,5 chords at max?

I am a singer who accompanies himself on guitar - I would love to leave the guitar playing to somebody else but there ain't nobody here but us chickens...

Sam,

You could use Eb or Cm for the key on that one, I hope. I don't know the song, but those Maj7ths are probably needed, depending on where the melody goes.

Trax

I would call it Cm and yes the song would not be the song wthout the Maj7ths.

Ok. I'll cancel that one then. What about the others?

If you transpose Windmills to Am (and put a capo on the 3rd fret if you want it in Cm), it turns into a bunch of easy chords.

There are two unusual chords in Am (Dm6 and Ebdim), but they aren't bad.

The Dm6 can be played by lifting the lowest finger from at Am (see here). The Ebdim is also pretty easy to finger (see here) - very much like a B7 chord.

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

I can give you the Motor car song if you are stuck. I think I have a biab version of it, but I did sing it at one time.

Windmills is an easy one. I don't know about dumming it down though. I do it in Em. Easily transposed. If you are smart like my wife you can do that on the fly. I have trouble making sure the darn thing is zipped up.

Thank you very much for pointing that out, David. I transposed it to Am and now it is manageable.

She, and all like her are my heros! If it's a slow tempo ballad I can get through the the first 8-10 bars but must admit I get lost very easily after that.

What I need is the BIAB Transpose Key Feature in my brain!

What Would I be seems to have pretty generic chord structure . . . here is a youtube recording What Would I Be which should help you work out the chords. Come on Sam are you really looking?

Danny, I have found that already but it doesn't help me. I can't yet work out the chords by myself - that takes practise. I do have the lyrics but I can barely even tell what key that is in

Save Notation Window as a Video with Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac

Did you know... Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac allows you to save the Notation Window as a video? What a great way to share your songs with users, and LEARN from the notation as you listen!

From the program manual:
[Save As] | Save as video
-In the Make Notation Video dialog, select a track at the upper left corner. (Note: The dialog title says “Make Chord Sheet Video” until you select a track.)
-You can also set the dimension (width/height) of the video and select the number of frames per second and a specific codec.
-Press the [OK - Render Video] button to start rendering the video. When the video has been created, press the [Show Video File] button.
-You can then double click on the file to watch the rendered video.

Note: A special use of this feature is to combine a Video RealTracks (new with version 2018) with the corresponding notation in a single video. This creates an educational video, which shows the actual performance with notation/tab, playing over your chord progression! To do this, right-click on the Master button or one of the track buttons at the top of the main screen and select Render Video(s) from the menu.
