Hi All

I was recently approached by Musical-U to put together a guest blog post on how I am using BIAB to become more musical. I chose to explain how I make a backing track with Band-in-a-Box and how I use that backing track to practice playing along to. Musical-U did a really good of transcribing the video I sent them and putting the post together.

Here is the link to the article on their website.

https://www.musical-u.com/learn/how-to-make-a-backing-track-with-joanne-cooper/

I have also been involved with them in making some BIAB tracks (along with the lead sheets) for some nursery rhymes. These are to be used in a practice module to help their members play melodies and chords by ear.

I can highly recommend this program for anybody looking to enhance their musicality in a non-threatening environment. Their podcasts are a great free resource. https://www.musical-u.com/learn/welcome-musicality-podcast/

Nice work Joanne. I've been subscribed to YouTube videos for you and them and have seen these videos pop up. They look great and it seems like a great relationship you have with them.

Excellent tutorial Joanne. You sounded good doing the song in 'D'... ;=)

Didn't seem to high to be out of your range.

Songwriting Feedback - "Why This Forum Matters"

Our Forum is a great resource when you're wanting to discuss Band-in-a-Box (or other PG Music Inc. programs), but it's so much more!

In addition to the different sections we have for our products (Band-in-a-Box, RealBand, PowerTracks, and Other PG Music Programs), there are also places on our Forum to share your songs, YouTube videos, ask for tech help for problems not related to our software, "off topic" discussions, and more!

Forum user David Snyder shared his thoughts on Why This Forum Matters in his recent Songwriting post, which has some great feedback, including:

It occurred to me this morning that it is the group effort that counts. That is, one kind word about another member's song, one piece of encouragement or generous suggestion, might cause that person to write the greatest song ever written, which might then go on to have a massive impact on some stranger's life, cause someone to fall in love, or turn their life around, and literally change the course of history. Because songs do that.

OR, one kind word given to YOU might cause you to write the greatest song ever written in the coming year, and that song could go on to have an impact on untold thousands. Who knows! It happens all the time.

But the point is, it is not about any one of us, it is about all of us, the group.

Read through the whole conversation (and join in!): http://www.pgmusic.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=447431

...and a big THANK YOU to David for sharing his thoughts!
