An attempt at joy and lightness.
Comments and criticisms welcome.
Tried to include bars and chords that are not too dependant on formatting
hoping you will play and sing along. Cheers.

Richard,

Great to hear a RichMac song again. A cheery one, at that...

Don't recall hearing anyone using that guitar before... RichMac and the New Zealand Two?

Enjoyed. Well done.

RichMac,

The lightness works for me- and the western back track sounds great. Thanks for giving me a singalong lift!

Hi Floyd. Glad you enjoyed it.
As far as I'm concerned it's all just a bit of fun.
Merged two versions of the baritone track to flesh it out a bit more.
It's hard work being cheery though.
Smiling makes my face ache.
Cheers.

RichMac, good job putting your track together. I was thinking of Johnny Cash a lot in this one. Thanks, Torrey

Thanks Rob.
Yes Johnny Cash and Waylon, Kristofferson, Willie.
That's my era.
If others add the chords and bar lines to their lyrics
I will be able to easily play their songs.
Something I would enjoy. Cheers.

Hi Joe.
Let myself go with the organs.
Generated a half dozen B4 tracks and a couple of funk and merged them all for a busier background.
Thanks for the comment. Cheers.

Feedback - The Way I Use Band-in-a-Box and How It Changed My Music Career

Thank you to forum user Torrey Bliss for their amazing feedback, The way I use Band In A Box and how it changed my music career!

"I wanted to put up a post about how I got started using Band In A Box in order to help someone who is just getting started using the program to be be able to see the potential uses of BIAB for a musician and explain my procedure when composing a song.

I began using BIAB about 10 years ago after seeing some things online about the program and thought it might work for me. I had just accepted a staff position as a worship leader at a medium size church (250-300 people) and had been put in charge of all music. The problem I immediately encountered was that there were no available musicians to help me. This is where BIAB saved the day. I was able to quickly construct many professional sounding songs that I would be able to use in the services and play my guitar or keyboards along with and provide an excellent set of music for our church to sing along with..."
