Delta Danger

https://soundcloud.com/alananddi/delta-danger

I'm terrible naming my instrumentals so humor me with this one ...please??!! I envisioned vicious alligators, a voodoo priestess, a thick daunting mist, strange and nefarious-looking birds in the bald cypress trees, occasional fingers of spooky sunlight peeking through the canopy of Spanish moss - you get the picture. Thus the title.

This is another one I put together while I was doing my chemo last year. It's a musical bed with no real lead tracks but the slide guitar carries the tune pretty good. I tried like heck to get a few more horn stabs in the background but BIAB was stubborn and stingy - it's not from a lack of trying! The reason I didn't create a lead track for it is because I submitted for possible inclusion in a movie and they wanted a swamp sounding bed with minimal or no significant lead track. I kinda liked it when I finished it so I never went back for a lead track at a later time.

If I got real ambitious I could probably write a lyric for it. Maybe some day - just not this day! Thanks for your time to listen and comments.

WILL POST A LIST OF THE BIAB TRACKS AS SOON AS I LOCATE THEM.

Hi Al,

I don't see/hear the danger at all. It gives me a feeling of riding a horseback, slowly and rhythmically (I never ride a horse, but anyway... wink ).
Gives me a nice feeling, so I'd call it: Equestrianism.

Alan,
Love the rhythm and slide.Nice try on the horns ( I tried something similar with those horns in BiaB- they are tricky)
I enjoyed the swampy atmosphere!

Good one, Alan. Enjoyed the listen.

You described it as sort of "dark and sinister", but I thought it had a bit of "bounce" and "liveliness" to it... swamp creatures having a dance...

Very well mixed.

This little tune has a great mix on it and I really like the chord changes. To me this is Jazz meets delta blues at some happy place in the middle. Drums sound exceptionally good to me. Thanks, Torrey.

After reading your dialog, I really didn't know what to expect, but I can state that I sure was pleasantly surprised.

This has got a great rhythmical feel, excellent jive, and all around sound that makes you want to go and listen to it again and again.

Really, really cool.

BTW: The tune title is just perfect.

floyd said "swamp creatures having a dance." That was funny...and fitting!

We enjoyed it from beginning to end.

Nice production and good potential for a film or tv background theme.

Nice.

Nice sound, well mixed.
It gaves me the sensation of the ambient you want to describe.

Well done.

Glad ya liked it and appreciate ya letting me know! I wrote a song about 15 years ago called "Midnight In The Swamp" where a verse talks about snakes and alligators dancing in a pirogue left behind. Never posted it here as I created it in my older music creation software - before I became a BIAB user.

But glad ya like this one. And yes, the bayous have a rhythm as do the critters there. Best to you,

Alan

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..."
