Thank you Danny ! Just go's to show ya ain't gotta have some fancy axe to have fun ,music can be fun with a bucket too . Yee Haw !




You are correct sir . . . reminds me of my very early years when this(back then old cat)would follow our band from gig to gig, find him a place not too far from the stage where he would play his spoons. I mean this guy would even show up at weddings and private gigs, many times we had to just say, "hey he's with the band".

On a more serious note a featured solo on that baby would be a very change of pace during a regular gig. Heck I'd bet it would draw a lot of attention just sitting on stage awaiting it's turn!

Happy New Year,

I agree with Kemmrich:

Satisfaction for me did not come until I started writing and performing my own material.

Get into the habit - join Kemmrich and I and a few other PG'ers at February Album Writing Month www.fawm.org

Goal is to write 14 songs in the month of February, each February.

Thousands participate now every year and many of them reach the goal. My success rate is 75% at reaching the goal, and out of those 14 songs each year, I have 2 or 3 true keepers that entertain myself and others.

Get into the discipline of writing your own material. There's lots of ways to go about it - copy a song structure from one of your favorite songs and replace chords, melody and lyrics, etc.

I try to do something new for me each year as part of the practice. Last year, the new thing for me was to write a song without a proper chorus, just a repeated refrain line on the ends of the verses.

-Scott

Thanks Yall! When I fist built that one it had only 1 string and 1 washtub, but the economy was booming back then and so I added the extree strings and tub (wanted me a double bass). I also built a 4 stringer one outta recycled red wood (my old front porch),but gave it away to my brother in-law . Have built a few hillbilly fiddles and guitars too !

Yeah, shmartinn is likely a spambot. The technology is mainly used for rewriting webpages, so you can create copies of "articles" and increase your presence on Google. But they've also got programs that scrape webpages for content, and it looks like that's what's happening here.

There's some pretty slick stuff out there - Google "rewrite article software." But there's better software available if you're looking for something to help write lyrics.

Back in the days of shareware, I'd flirted with the idea of putting together something similar, to allow students to automatically pad their papers. (In my naivete, the possibility of using it to rewrite existing papers hadn't occurred to me). Given that my target audience was also the least likely to pay for software, I decided to spend my time elsewhere.

Happy to hear you took advantage of that little spurt in the economy back then.

Customers LOVE Band-in-a-Box®!

Here's some of the amazing feedback we've received lately, from program users just like you!

Arthritic fingers means I find it very difficult to play anything. This program is amazing - and it does use real musicians!
-Bob E.

The power of this program is just unbelievable! It's been a best kept secret for a couple of decades now. A song writer's dream!
-Mike D

This band can practice any time of day ...LOL
-William G

Band-in-a-Box works so simple you could teach a child to do it within minutes - the RealTracks are amazing. Doing an album as we speak. I challenge you to give it a try. I am 60 years old and even though I've played 50 years, I am no engineer. But as a song writer I needed some effective tools to create quality production of my work. This is IT! It's as easy as typing and filling in the blanks. The instructional videos allow you to change settings while watching the pro. I myself purchased every "RealTrack" I could get... Take it from me, don't let this overwhelm you. It is absolutely a writer and solo artist dream!
-John S

Best part of Band-in-a-Box is that it saves me having to program drums, the Real Drummer part of the software is brilliant and natural sounding. I then layer real instruments with guys from my band. As a songwriter, Band-in-a-Box has saved me so much time it's ridiculous.
-Andy B

Incredible Software. Great for ignorance and experts and for anyone who wants to deal with music. If you do not have a hobby and want to have one "Band-in-a-Box" is the best choice. Simple, but if you want to be an expert on it, you need to make an effort to master it perfectly for perfect use. The only disadvantage is if you do not want to become a musician, and use it, you will become a perfect musician. Therefore, be cautious. It's not a toy. ;)
-Ilija B.

Been a BIAB man since '92, such a comprehensive source for music making! So much more to offer than "loops", it allows actual music composition to be realized. Evolve from harmonic ignorance and find out what REAL music is made of!
-Don D.

A must for any musician who wants to improve on his own, or to share his musical ideas in a professional high quality rendition.. You just play with the best musicians and that's great ♪ :)
-Jean-Marie D.

I use Band in a Box all the time. I couldn't be more pleased. It's easy to use and it sounds super-big time!
-Max R.

An excellent tool for generating backing tracks. Saves me hours of MIDI programming. Combines the best of MIDI and live audio samples.
