This is probably the fastest quick and dirty song we have done yet. Last Sunday, 11-13-2011 , hence the song title, BobH from PSR started messing around with my 12 string and came up with the basic chord pattern. I started BiaB using only the drums and Bob played along. He added some short 12 string riffs. I added the bass, wind controller, changed the drums and we were finished. The total time was about one hour.

I know the lead line is a bit redundant but I thought this was worth posting anyway. Let me know what you think.
I changed my password to "incorrect" so whenever I forget it the computer will say, "Your password is incorrect."

64 bit Win 10 - the latest BiaB and RB - I always get the updates - Roland Octa-Capture audio interface - a ton of software and some hardware.

Would like to hear more low end on the drum. Everything else sounds great to me!

Hi Mario,

I really like this one! I think it is one of your better wind controller efforts. I like pretty much everything about it. The ending seems just a little to abrupt to my ears, though. Keep up this "quick and dirty" work!

It is a genuine pleasure to be associated with PG Music. By eliminating the need for an external tone generator and including a comprehensive array of real combo and orchestral instruments within the software, Band-in-a-Box has once again set a new standard of high quality.
