Believe
Music & Lyrics copyright Stephen W. Young

Somewhere in the middle
Of a broken life
There's a light to remind you
It's gonna be alright
When your whole world is spinning round
Plant your feet on solid ground
And believe

I believe in the goodness
Of a little child
And I believe in the sweetness
Of a little girl's smile
And I believe that anything is possible
With a loving God
And a heart that's full
When your whole world is spinning round
Just plant your feet on solid ground
And believe

When my whole world is spinning round
I plant my feet on solid ground
And I believe
I believe

---

Have a great day!

Steve

Great harmony and like how the song builds.

I also thought it was cool you used the "believe" RTs to write a song called Believe.

Well done.

Hi Steve,

Everything you touch is so good! Your songwriting (music and lyrics) and your production, not to mention your vocals. I am envious of your talent. You mentioned you played violin, guitar and piano, too. How many instruments do you dabble with. Do you ever play out in public much now?

Thanks,
Rod M

Hi Josie,

Thanks so much! Believe it or not, I didn't really notice the connection of the Believe song with the Believe RealTracks, until after I posted the song, when I read the song memo. lol! I usually write most of my songs pretty much in my head (arrangement and all). I let it sort of roll around in my head (there's plenty of room up there) for usually a day or two. Then when I sit down to BIAB, I try to recreate what I hear in my head. Sometimes it comes out almost exactly like it, sometimes the song sort of morphs into the final product.

Thanks very much for your comments. Your comments are always welcome!

Steve

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows was released in December 2018, and included many new features and enhancements - like the enhancements we made to our Notation window!

These include:
-Pressing the space bar plays the song from the current location.
-Double-clicking on the Standard mode Notation window (or on the time line in Editable or Staff Roll mode) plays the song from the current time location.
-The right-click menu in the Editable or Staff Roll mode Notation window has an option to change the current beat resolution. Previously, the only way to do this was to right-click on the time line.
-Clicking close to a stave line will put a note on the stave line instead of between stave lines. Previously, you had to click extremely close to a stave line to insert a note on it.
-In the Notation Windows Options dialog, the clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
-The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
-You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
-A new track type (Drums) is available for the Melody and Soloist tracks.
-Holding down the Ctrl key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
-There's a keystroke entry mode -the "N" mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, up/down cursor to change its pitch, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
-A new button in the Print Options dialog lets you quickly print a "chords only" fake sheet. You can also access this from the right-click menu on the Chord Sheet.
-You can now edit any track in the Event List Editor. When the dialog opens, it will show you the MIDI data in the current notation track.


There's detailed information on our 2019 notation enhancements here: Band-in-a-Box® 2019 New Feature - Notation Enhancements

Jump to the Notation topic in our Band-in-a-Box® 2019 new features video.

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Mac Build 315 Update Available!

Attention Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Mac users - a new FREE patch update (build 315) is available!
Review details and download here

Summary of changes for build 315 (Nov 15, 2019):

Fixed: Exporting MusicXML files was not working.
Fixed: When using "Auto-Hand split Piano track" feature, exported MIDI files contain wrong note durations on the Piano track.
Fixed: Note-based lyrics were not included when exporting MIDI files.
Fixed: User should be prompted to save their song when exiting, if they had added or removed plugins.
Fixed: The Record Audio dialog always says “Track type is Stereo” even if the track type is mono.
Fixed: The [Audio Options…] button in the Record Audio dialog was launching the Audio Devices dialog instead of the Audio Settings dialog.
Fixed: Loops dialog title bar displays wrong track name.
Fixed: Large patch map files are not completely loaded (were limited to 1985 patches).
Fixed: Notation context menu > Edit Section Text… did not do anything.
Fixed: Notation context menu > Insert Section Text… did not do anything.

My Favorite Things - Nudge Chords in Band-in-a-Box®

Love this time saving feature.

Ever fill in the chordsheet fully or for part of song, and then discover you want to add or take away an extra beat or more somewhere in the chordsheet.

Nudge chords (melody) from the Edit Menu is your friend here, the dialog will give you all the options either to remove or add beats where its needed.

Love it.
