Hi,
A piece of music I recently wrote using Band in a Box with various styles.
All guitar's are me playing my 70's Stratocaster, Takamine acoustic and Yamaha classical everything else is BIAB with GPO4.
Once again thought putting a silent film to the music (public domain) would be cool.

Brian smile

Style is ARPORK44.STY (Orchestral Piano arpeggios 4/4)
RealDrums in Song: NashPopBallad

Thanks for sharing, Brian! This is an example of solid songwriting, and what Band-in-a-Box can do! Not over the top - just a pleasant tune to listen to, and easy on the ears. Those strings were a fantastic addition too. Great job!

Thanks again for the comments, re the strings Deryk I find the classical styles with a bit of tweaking really inspirational and give me a good counterpoint melody to work with.

Well played and produced. It sounds very good on the monitors and the vid was cool (and effective).

Enjoyed it

Nice! I like the melodic guitar line you came up with and the backing track compliments it perfectly. Fun video too!

I've got a 70's era strat too BTW, '74 to be exact. I'm the original owner.
