Red, White and Blue - song by Joe Hart

I wrote this song last year and recorded the practice session on a Sony field recorder.

I dropped the chords for my song I wrote into BIAB. My daughter Amber sang the song for me while I output BIAB through the PA. I did a little guitar and my wife played shaker and played flute.

Joe,

Terrific first post there! Welcome to the forum!

Nice to make it a family affairs. Amber's singing sounds good. And the flute is a great add.

You might want to included the lyrics - either here or on your soundcloud page. Some of the words are difficult to catch....

Nice job with the BIAB backing!

Joe, Welcome to the forum. I like the song . The vocalist does a good job. I would like to hear this again after you record to a DAW. It's much easier these days to learn to multitrack than it used to be. You can find all the help you need in some of the technical forums. There are plenty of folks here happy to help with questions you might have. You and the family sure have the musical ability to make some great recordings. Thanks for posting, I enjoyed the song. Tom

Hi Joe,

Welcome to the Users Showcase!

Cool first post, I like it - has a "Woodstock" vibe to me. As Floyd mentioned it's good to post the lyrics as some of the words were hard to catch. Realband is a capable DAW that comes with BIAB, and there is also Reaper one of the most popular DAWS that you can try for free.

BTW, love that flute. Maybe we can get your wife to make some flute user tracks. (see user track forum for details).

Josie

Review - Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Windows

Make sure to check out the latest Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Windows review from Sound-Guy (Dennis) at www.gearslutz.com: click here.

Sound-Guy has been using Band-in-a-Box® for many, many, many, many, many years - and we still managed to surprise him with some great new features! Read his latest review to learn more about his favorite additions for 2020!

"Band-in-a-Box continues to evolve as an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to produce not only new compositions and arrangements, but also perform them with excellent musical “talent”. It also provides educational and training tools for keyboardists and guitarists. It’s easy to use the basic functions, and challenging enough to keep you occupied for years. BIAB provides education, inspiration, a “live” band to aid in practicing, and anything from backing tracks to full performances for recording."
-Sound-Guy, www.gearslutz.com

How I Use Band-in-a-Box® to Create Shots/Chops

Band-in-a-Box® user Henry Clarke creates a lot of great songs with Band-in-a-Box®, and he's shared his steps for creating the shots/chops within his recent song Lonely in a Crowd.

Review - Loops-with-Style PAK 2 for Band-in-a-Box® 2020

"Dr. Dave" Walker is at it again! You may remember his recent reviews of both Band-in-a-Box 2020 for Mac and Xtra Styles PAK 9 - now he has something to say about our Loops-with-Style PAK 2 - check it out: Click here to read...

With money being tight for most musicians, this is a wonderful gift for those on a limited budget. At $29, it offers months and years of fun and experimentation, bringing many ideas to fruition as songs with enough variation so that your audience doesn’t jump to "aw, that's a computer!" while still keeping the power of the software in your hands.
-"Dr. Dave" Walker

Thank you again Dr. Dave for the great review!

My New Favorite Thing - Extra Style PAK #9 with Loop Pack #2

I set up an eight bar progression with some simple pushes, shots, holds, and rests for reference. Then I started auditioning styles--Three hours later, I am invigorated, inspired, and just plain smiling big. Really CHOICE! From "down to earth" to eclectic, this is a really fun pak.

Great job, folks!
