"Change A Man" - From Sheils & Crane 'Next Time' CD

Any new fathers out there ? Well maybe not, but this is what I remember it to be like...

Subjective, Loved the song.

That took me back 47 years, my soon to be wife
had a 6 year old son. He was never baggage,
he became my son on the day we were married.
Soon a sister was here, and then another brother.
All this during my military years.

This all changed me as your lyrics indicated and
might add for the better. Wrinkles here and there
but 47 years later look back and give thanks for the
blessings of the kids, their kids and our lives.

Newbie to mixing really like the finger picking support,
and the the Electric guitar at special moments.
Am listening with my ATH-M40fs headphones.

Listening to experienced, and also new to this, helps
me a great deal, along the the joy of the music.

Thanks for you hard work and sharing.

Thanks Seeker ! I appreciate you listening and taking time to comment. I particularly like these lyrics of all tunes on this CD we did. 'Veteran's Day' is another one with very nice lyric.

Thanks for sharing this song. I remember like yesterday when my daughters were born. Oldest now 31. How time flies!

As the lyrics say so well, children sure change your life - for the good!

Mitch, I think every father can relate to this one.

The lyrics are top notch! Everything else is spot on also.

Two thumbs up.
I changed my password to "incorrect" so whenever I forget it the computer will say, "Your password is incorrect."

#TBT - Introduction of RealBand

We first introduced RealBand in July 2008, with the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2008.5 for Windows. Initially, RealBand was a separate purchase - but that changed early in 2009... it's now included with every purchase of Band-in-a-Box® for Windows!

It started out with the following features list:
- Intelligent automatic accompaniment by Band-in-a-Box®.
- RealTracks and RealDrums – automatic live instrument parts. Generate Real Instruments or other new tracks to add to an existing audio file. The added parts play in sync as they follow the original tempos from the audio file.
- Generate an entire song or parts of a song.
- The amazing Audio Chord Wizard figures out the chords from any MP3 or other audio files and writes them to the Chords window in RealBand. Using just this one feature alone, you can easily learn to play MP3 songs, by seeing the chords displayed in RealBand.
- MIDI music can be displayed in standard music notation on the screen and using the on-screen piano keyboard or guitar fretboard.
- 48-track MIDI/audio mixer with multiple FX busses (up to 16 effects per track).
- Support for popular audio file formats – MP3, WMA, WMV, WAV, and CDA.
- Built-in DirectX audio effects.
- DirectX and VST plug-ins supported.
- Band-in-a-Box files load directly.
- Compatible with all Band-in-a-Box styles and Real instruments.
- Shares native .SEQ file type with PowerTracks Pro Audio, directly compatible.
- Professional recording, editing, and playback features. Create and edit music using piano roll, music notation, event list, bars view, track view and more.
- Supports all major audio and MIDI file types, including PG Music’s PowerTracks Pro Audio files (*.SEQ) and Band-in-a-Box files (*.?G?).
- Support for MIDI and Karaoke files.
- Karaoke lyrics window.
- Piano roll window with graphic controller editing.
- Onscreen notation and lead sheet style printout.
- Virtual guitar fretboard and piano keyboard.
…and more!

It's come a long way since then! Visit and scroll down to the RealBand 2016 tab to see all the newest features in this popular program.

#TipTuesday - Export the StylePicker, RealTracks, and RealDrums Lists in Band-in-a-Box® 2016

One of the new features in Band-in-a-Box® 2016 for Windows is the ability to export the StylePicker, RealTracks, and RealDrums lists to a spreadsheet.

To do this, press the [Copy List] button within the StylePicker, RealTracks, and RealDrums Picker windows. This will put the entire list on a file that saves within your BB folder, but it will also open up right away as a Notepad document when you choose [OK] on the message that appears.

When the Notepad document opens up, just select the entire contents, and copy it to your clipboard. When you paste it into an Excel (or other spreadsheet) document, you'll see that it separates the information into easy-to-sort columns.

This feature is also available in Band-in-a-Box® 2016 for Mac.
