Hi,

I'm a new user, having just bought BIAB a couple of weeks ago, and had a first play about tonight to try and record something. It's a basic blues in Bm with BIAB drums, bass.organ and blues harp with me playing rhythm and lead guitar.
Track is here: Blues in Bm

Looking forward to getting to know the program, recording, and picking up tips here!
cheers,
Dave

Hello, and welcome to the forum!

I really enjoyed this piece. As others have said before, there are not a lot of blues pieces being added to the forum. I'd love to see some more added to the showcase!

Look forward to your next share.

Wow Dave! Great post! You really have some fine guitar work on display here that would make B.B., Freddie and many others proud! Like the wah treatment in places too! Very good job! Thanks, Torrey

Nice work Dave, and welcome to the forums! I loved the "smokey" sort of vibe from this one. It has a calming, and mysterious feeling to it. I've always been a sucker for laid back blues of this nature.

Great job, and thanks so much for sharing! Can't wait to hear what else you come up with using Band-in-a-Box smile

Thanks very much for all your positive comments. I've started listening to some of the stuff here and some great music being made!
I'm a guitar teacher from Scotland, and spend so much time teaching and playing weddings/functions, that I've lost touch a wee bit with my own music. I bought Band in a Box in order to get back into songwriting and recording - I'm sure I learn so much here and look forward to spending more time checking out your stuff!
Cheers,
Dave

Reminded me a bit of master Santana during his Black Magic Woman days, and your way too short piece there is definitely my kind of music that left me craving for more by the end of it, but...Man! If that is your "first", I can't even begin to imagine where you'll be at with BBox in a year's time crazy

- I am massively impressed cool

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac - Importing MIDI Files

Did you know that Standard MIDI files can be read in to the Melodist or Soloist track within Band-in-a-Box? You can use all of the MIDI File, or select channels or a specific range of bars, using these steps:
1. Melody | Import Melody from MIDI File to select a MIDI file from disk using the file dialog.
2. Melody | Import Melody from Clipboard - when the MIDI data is already copied from another program to the

A new window will open, asking for additional criteria - which channels, # of bars to offset..., # of bars to import, include lyrics, include patch changes - and more! Head to our online manual Chapter 10: Working with MIDI to learn more!
