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

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

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.
