Dear Forum Friends,
I'd like to take a moment to say thanks to all the veterans and everyone who supports them. Your service to your country is appreciated and respected.
Here's a older tune I wrote for all the Patriots out there.

Patriots' Call

Hi Space Dog,

As you know, I'm writing this from my hospital bed. So if there are any typos, I'm gonna blame it on that! Also, my replies will be brief.

Great song! That staccotto (sp?) piano was perfect to symbolize the marching of soldiers in formation. Your attention to that small detail is what makes the song appropriate and effective in a big way. Nicely done!

Alan

Alan,
Thanks. The staccato piano was part of the music from the first time played the song. Backing it up with the snare drum came later.
Best wishes and get well soon!

Tommy
Thanks. I'm glad you liked it. I generally don't like to repeat posting a song but I just wanted to say thanks to the vets and their families.

Floyd,
Thanks for listening.

Rob and Anne-Marie,
I'm glad you enjoyed it.

Kudos on such a well written song - I don't think patriotic songs are easy to write. And that piano part with those drums really added to it. Much enjoyed!

Glad you liked it.

Josie
Thanks. I've heard that patriot songs an Christmas songs are hard to write. I guess that's it's too easy to write cliche's
OBTW, I'm just starting a new Christmas song.

Alyn
Thanks.
Sonny.
Thanks. I always try to honor our vets and their families.

Dani,
Thanks.

J&B
I appreciate your kind comments.

Guenter,
Thanks. I'm trying to keep my musical separate from my professional net-presence. But you can call me Mike.

Band-in-a-Box® Country Music Add-ons!

Happy International Country Music Day!!!

You might not think of Band-in-a-Box® as a country music making machine, but you'd be surprised... there are OVER 850 Country RealTracks available!

See (hear?) the Country songs created by Band-in-a-Box® users when you check out the Band-in-a-Box® Radio playlists Country/EZ Listening/Folk 1 and Country/EZ Listening/Folk 2.

Feeling inspired to create your own Country song in Band-in-a-Box®? Pop into the RealTracks Picker and create your own custom country band by filtering for "Country" or choose an existing Country style within the StylePicker Window by choosing a "Country" Filter String (from the drop down menu).

Band-in-a-Box® 2020 French for Mac is Here!

Band-in-a-Box® 2020 apporte plus de 50 nouvelles fonctionnalités ! Des améliorations ont été apportées aux RealTracks (RealTracks vocales au son plus doux, Epaississement des RealTracks, fonctions RealTracks "Trouver un Subs" et Multiriffs). La majorité des RealDrums dispose maintenant de RealCharts (avec une notation Drums précise). Le nouveau navigateur d'artistes RealTracks permet la recherche d'informations/bios/liens/listes sur artistes RealTracks. Le nouveau navigateur de fonctions permet à l'utilisateur nouveau ou "tête en l'air" de trouver et d'utiliser facilement la plupart des fonctionnalités/raccourcis/documents à partir d'une seule fenêtre. L'égalisation du tempo permet de changer un morceau rubato enregistré en un tempo fixe. L'étirement audio temps/pitch a été amélioré (Elastique inclus). Il y a des améliorations un peu partout dans le SongPicker, les Intros automatiques avec Basse/drums ou drums seuls, l'extension du nombre de titres avec + 3.400 titres nouveaux, MusicXML, la guitare avec vues "gaucher" et "élève", la fonction glisser-déposer, l'affichage multi-fenêtres de l'Assistant Accord Audio et bien plus encore !

ACHAT / MISE À JOUR, & TÉLÉCHARGEMENT MAINTENANT!

Get Inspired with the Band-in-a-Box® Title Generator!

There can be many triggers that could inspire you to write a song... but what if you're wanting to write a song, and are having trouble finding the inspiration you need?

Jump start your creativity using the Title Generator feature in Band-in-a-Box®.

I love this feature - it delivers some beautiful results!

To access this feature:

Mac: select Edit | Chords | Auto-Generate Song Title menu command (control+shift+S). The song title will appear in the Title window! Repeat the Auto-Generate Song Title command until the program comes up with a suitable title for your song. Band-in-a-Box® will keep generating new titles for as long as it takes to get the right one.

Windows: click on the "Generate Title" button within the main screen of the program and you can choose to "auto-generate" a song title which will appear right in the Title field of your song, or for a more varied selection choose to "generate multiple titles" and you'll be taken to the Title Generator window, which can generate a list of 50 song titles for you!

I've just done this, and won't bother list all 50 here - but the "top 10" I've chosen from my generated list are:
Eloquent Laugh
Statuesque Luck
Considering a Rainbow
Brief Fling, Acknowledged
Something for a Sandpiper
Happy Runaround
Cheatin' Skies
Then Came a Rose
The Mention of My Love
Eternal Raincheck

Give it a try!

The resource for this feature can also be edited, allowing you to customize the results.
(to do this, review the file TITL1.TXT within the BB Data folder.)
