Open the Hen House Door is an instrumental piece with a rough bluesy rock sound.
I was experimenting with the push features in biab. Makes a break, then the drums escort you right back in.

This reminds me of when we open the hen's door each morning. They are rushed, and eager to get outside. (Funny picture in my mind at least)

CMJ, Thanks for the imagery. I heard a lot of scrambling going on. The music captures those chickens running all over the place trying to get out.

That is true. They run so fast in such a hurry they nearly scramble their own eggs.

I like this one. Very good mix.

IMHO the only thing I would add would be some Wah-Wah pedal, chickening picking guitar leads in certain sections. Nit-picking for sure but that was the first thing that came into my head as I listened, where is the lead guitar?

Good instrumental.

I think the lead guitar is buried in the mix. this one was a bit hard to mix because of having so many strong guitar sounds in it.

Good song CJ. Just a thought...roll off the mids some in the guitar track to take a little harshness out of the guitar. (IMHO) Otherwise, good job!

Save Notation Window as a Video with Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac

Did you know... Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac allows you to save the Notation Window as a video? What a great way to share your songs with users, and LEARN from the notation as you listen!

From the program manual:
[Save As] | Save as video
-In the Make Notation Video dialog, select a track at the upper left corner. (Note: The dialog title says “Make Chord Sheet Video” until you select a track.)
-You can also set the dimension (width/height) of the video and select the number of frames per second and a specific codec.
-Press the [OK - Render Video] button to start rendering the video. When the video has been created, press the [Show Video File] button.
-You can then double click on the file to watch the rendered video.

Note: A special use of this feature is to combine a Video RealTracks (new with version 2018) with the corresponding notation in a single video. This creates an educational video, which shows the actual performance with notation/tab, playing over your chord progression! To do this, right-click on the Master button or one of the track buttons at the top of the main screen and select Render Video(s) from the menu.
