Nice one by you and your Mother, Robert. I'm hearing a gospel choir take this one home.

Hi Robert,

what a great gospel song. You and your mother should be very proud of this as it's a wonderful song with a wonderful performance. I agree that this would be a fabulous piece for gospel choir. i can already see the hands clapping and the church bursting with joy! Loved everything about it!

Di and I wrote a gospel song a couple of years ago that did real good on some Internet radio sites. I might post it soon. Will need to add some strings from BIAB as it was written using a different music program. But, I'll add a track of soft strings so I can post it here without "cheating". I might pout it up in the next day or two.

Again, terrific job on a terrific song!

Alan & Di

Cool tune. Short as well.

There are still plenty of gospel groups around here that play that very style of gospel music..... it's called Southern Gospel. Typified by the family based gospel groups and 4 guys in suits, as I like to call them who sing to backing tracks. This style is very popular in lots of churches here in the south. On a given Sunday evening, somewhere, within a short driving distance, there are at least one or two churches hosting just such a group, open to the public.

Your song is solidly in the classic southern gospel writing style. If it was mine, I would consider making a few changes to the tune. First and foremost, write a chorus. Where the solo instruments come in, hit the chorus..... then, at the end of the chorus, hit a short solo section...the hotter the picking here, the better...people in a church love a fancy picking solo no matter what the instrument... as far as solo length, one half of a verse is about right but don't be afraid to go an entire verse.... then grab a third verse (as yet unwritten) followed by the chorus again.....tag it and waaa laaa....

....and just a note...... at the end in a live performance of the song, during the applause and standing ovation...... let the applause go for 10 seconds or so, then jump right back into the chorus, hit another verse, followed by the chorus and tag at the ending again.... that's a trick I have seen at every single southern gospel show....bar none. The people really, really love that one.

Of course, this is only my opinion..... but as I see it, you have the start to a very good southern gospel song.... now take the time to finish it properly.

Nice work.

As an afterthought, a chorus isn't necessarily needed in this style. You could actually go in either direction....with or without. Just write a third verse and follow the rest of the road map. A bridge may be just as good if there's something you could add in a bridge.

Uplifting gospel tune. Guitarhacker's advice is spot on.

If you and your Mom ever see the Gaither Gospel Hour in the TV channel listings and tune-in, you will hear many uplifting songs like this.

I like your arrangement and instrument choices. Very clever starting with just a guitar backing track.

Instead of a choir, I would consider adding one or more tamborine tracks. BIAB has a loop plus you maybe able to find some samples.

Well Amen, I love it Robert - just the way it is. I really like the way the arrangement builds with a little country Gospel flavor. And the vocal is great. Sounds like talent runs in the family. <grin>

Built-in Audio Chord Wizard Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2020!

Our Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Windows version includes some great enhancements to the Built-in Audio Chord Wizard!

-The built-in Audio Chord Wizard is now accessible from the [Audio Chord Wizard] button.
-The Audio Edit window now displays chords and tempos for each bar. They are shown when the Audio Chord Wizard mode is active so that you can see the tempo for each bar as you set the bar lines.
-When you start entering bar lines, the program automatically sets the tempo to the tempo of the first bar.
-Once the tempo of the first bar is set, the program automatically moves the location of the first bar of audio over so that the visual space of the count-in bars is visible.
-After you’ve added the bar lines, IF you adjust the first or second bar and the tempo of the first bar changes accordingly, the program automatically changes the tempo of the song to match.
-Multi-window display. This gives the Audio Chord Wizard a multi-window view so that you can see and edit both the Audio Edit window and the Chords Sheet at the same time. This display is best viewed with a small toolbar mode. This allows you to see the chords as they are being interpreted by the wizard.
-The Audio Chord Wizard can send the transcribed MIDI notes to the Soloist track for further analysis by the user (via Piano Roll or Notation window). Note that this is a "snapshot" view every 8th note of the pitches present, not an attempt at polyphonic transcription. To use this feature, enable the "MIDI to Soloist" check box.

Read more about these enhancements here, or jump to the New Feature - Audio Chord Wizard (ACW) Enhancements section of our New Features video here.
