This song is a cowrite with Susie Whiting and was written back in 2009 when I had just installed my 2009 version of BIAB with RealBand. I don't remember all the settings now, just remember that I had done the basic layout on BIAB and then went into RealBand to do some editing and add the Fiddle, Pedal Steel and vocals. I was aiming at a country/folk feeling to compliment the Novella that Susie had written that was set in country/folk background.

Well I'd say you captured the feeling in those lyrics perfectly.
Very poetic words and beautiful music to match.
Was that you singing?
Very nice voice.

The only thing I'd change if possible is to update the backing track.
There are so many new real styles in the newer BIAB that would make this song shine even better then it does now.

Good job.

Thanks Tim,
Yes that was me singing. If I can find the original tracks with the vocals maybe I could update the song as I have BIAB 2012 now and am amazed at the changes and the quality of the newer tracks. Would have to use the original vocals though as I lost my voice after a bout with bronchial pneumonia last year.

Thank you SpaceDog,
I usually write the melody first and then add the lyrics. Just seems easier to me. I really don't know where the melodies come from. Sometimes I wake up in the morning with a melody running through my head but I have to get to the keyboard right away or it's gone.

#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.
