Well thank you Mario. You are too kind.

I am really looking forward to using BIAB as I am planning to get back into writing and recording after a far-too-long hiatus.

The songs currently on my site are mostly from 8-10 years ago. The backing tracks are not that great, they were from a free chord-builder website. But it did the job.

However, BIAB has re-sparked my creative juices. I've got a lot more to say through music!

I've not heard of JamStudio.com before. If the songs you've posted are representative of what the site can deliver, it's quite impressive.

I just went out and looked at JamStudio - interesting way to lay down tracks. Can you export to .wav files or is it just limited to MP3?

Thanks!

I agree 100% with the idea of write, write, write...but with the purpose of improving skills and discovering new paths.

I DISAGREE 100% with the idea that what should be delivered to a listening audience is mediocrity or sheer volume with little regard for quality.

My mental picture of this idea is to have a workshop chock full of completed songs, fragments of songs, etc. but only let the ones that I'm really proud of out the door.
