Hi again

After reading some helpful comments from this forum (thanks)

I took my piano playing and only imported the melody in the melody track in BIAB

BOSSA33.STY. Bossa33 - Latin Brazilian Bossa
All MIDI. Quintet.
M1 Standard Drum Kit, [RD Sub: BOSSABRUSHES: a: Sidestick Brushes b: Sidestick, Ride :Craig Scott]
M33: Acoustic String Bass
M5: Electric Piano
M25: Nylon String Guitar
M50: Slow Strings


I removed the trombone and clarinet soloist from the last post

The song is smoother, and at least if I fail to be ace piano player at least I can depend on
Band-In-A-Box 2014

Thanks again for the comments and suggestions

Still an interesting arrangement but as you say, smoother. I like this a lot and you've got some good ideas going on here. Looking forward to some more from you soon.

Hi LPMan,

really smooth now. If you want to improve it remove some melody notes that don't fit the chords.
Looking forward to the third version.

Hi Guenter
I don't know if I'm going to come back to the song and finish it. I found a Chuck Berry style shuffle and edited it down to a ten bar blues progression. I can improvise a lot of song on top of it.... accounter progression if you will ....(removing piano track for a substitute progression). I think I will have less problems utilizing the potential of the styles better this way. it's great to hear yourself as a band. and I want to harness the full potential of the style.

I made a midi of this song so I can always come back to it. but moving the time blocks (bricks) is a nightmare for me

thanks for your input....

I don't know that I heard the first version, but this one sounds pretty cool.

I started off with BB using lots of Bossa sounding stuff..... it kinda opens lots of doors for ya.

nice work.

Thanks Guitarhacker,

I agree with you, the bossa nova has a lot of potential, I think because of the pattern of 16th notes. I found a MIDI song called moonlighting. You would swear this song was made by BIAB. I processed it through a bossa nova style, then edited the MIDI song down to just the piano melody. The only song I did perfect that came in a snap! its in my soundcloud playlist cover songs.

But.... I'm a big fan of space in my songs, I like working on jazz and hoping to become a better piano player using BIAB. I usually take the piano track off, an improv a layer
