scott.... yep.

Verse 1 lead is a mando.

Verse 3 is an acoustic guitar that jams around the melody


Thank you for listening.

Hi Herb
this is such a versatile song.
A second unusual version (to UK ears at least) from you and one I can hear it being played just like that in thousands of Homes at Christmas time.
I enjoyed the vocal in Vs 2 and 4. Good harmonies too.
Nice impro for V3. Good to hear the "melody line" making an appearance here and there in it - thats how it should be.
Superb acapella finish - what a clever idea.
Excellent.
cheers
ian

Herb this is a great version of Silent Night! I have never heard it done with this instrumentation before so this was a delight to my ears!

Great picking and singing BTW! Loved the ending, great job on that!

Merry Christmas

Thanks again.... I always love to hear Christmas tunes done up with traditional blue grass and acoustic instruments. So I thought I would do a few that way.

Glad you liked it.

This arrangement and performance... it sounds so real, I would never have guessed this was done with BIAB. It's amazing what you can do with BIAB.

Great performances. Thanks for posting

Although I have been working with BB/RB for 6 years or so, I am constantly amazed by what it can do. It gets better every year. I have people on other music & writer forums comment on my studio musicians all the time.

Thank you

Neat arrangement, if maybe a bit 'clustered' at times. You had some chord progressions in there I hadn't heard before and yet none of them felt off.
Pretty nice touch there with the ending, kept the interest all the way through cool

Icelander.... you are doing some research and digging for sure to have come upon this.....

It's almost time to dust this off once again for the upcoming holidays......

I enjoy the beauty of the music, so I will substitute chords and use things that others may not.

thanks for the listen.

Hi Herb ...

You posted this before we got here. So glad Icelander brought it back for us. We loved everything about it. A new take on a classic ... takes courage to redo such a popular holiday standard. And you nailed it!

The simplicity of it is what struck us on first listen. Then we evaluated your choice of instruments and concluded you couldn't have made a better selection. Everything precisely compliments your arrangement.

Really super! Best to ya ...

Alan & Di

Hi Herb,

This is the first time we hear your Silent Night. As far as we're concerned, keep it this way, so.... acoustic.
Beautiful mandolin and guitar and we like the acapella finish!

Regards,
Rob and Anne-Marie

49 of Your Problems Solved with Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Windows!

With Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Windows, there are 50+ new features, 202 RealTracks, and more!

We get ideas for the new features and new RealTracks from program users- there are several sources: our Wishlist and general forum, support phone calls, trade shows, etc. In most cases, customers are not describing a new feature – they are describing a problem they have that they would like to have solved.

This is a list of our features and additions in Band-in-a-Box® 2020, presented from a unique perspective. It is from this customer list of "problems they would like solved." These are not exact quotes, they are paraphrased from our discussions with our customers. They explain what problems and requests they discussed with us, that resulted in the various new features and RealTracks. Hopefully this answers the question "why did you add this feature/content?"

So, without further ado, here are the 49 requests/problems that we (hopefully) have solved with the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2020: click here to review.
