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.

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.

We can't wait to hear them!

Video - Adding RealTracks to Your Band-in-a-Box® Song

There are 300 RealTracks Sets available (over 2,500 RealTracks!), and here at PG Music we have this to say about them: You'll want to use RealTracks in all of your projects... and you can!

But what if you're not sure how to add them to your Band-in-a-Box® song? We have a video for that! Click here to watch...

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.
