This is probably the fastest quick and dirty song we have done yet. Last Sunday, 11-13-2011 , hence the song title, BobH from PSR started messing around with my 12 string and came up with the basic chord pattern. I started BiaB using only the drums and Bob played along. He added some short 12 string riffs. I added the bass, wind controller, changed the drums and we were finished. The total time was about one hour.

I know the lead line is a bit redundant but I thought this was worth posting anyway. Let me know what you think.

Would like to hear more low end on the drum. Everything else sounds great to me!

Hi Mario,

I really like this one! I think it is one of your better wind controller efforts. I like pretty much everything about it. The ending seems just a little to abrupt to my ears, though. Keep up this "quick and dirty" work!

#TBT Band-in-a-Box® Goes to NAMM

As we get ready to head to Summer NAMM this year, we're remembering our time their last year - we had so many visitors stop by our booth!

Band-in-a-Box® Tip of the Day!

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® will show you some helpful "Tips" when you start the program? What a great way for new program users to learn all the features of the program! Want to know Tips on just the latest version? This feature can be adjusted to just show the Tips for that too.

Maybe you're a long-time user of the program, and have this feature turned off? To access Tip of the Day (450+ available!), head to Help | Tip of the Day. Your Tip will appear right away - and you'll have the option of reading the Next Tip if you wanted too! Within this window is where you would also choose to "Show Tips at Startup" (if this is unchecked, you won't see them), or "Only Show Tips for Version 2019".

Here's a few Tips the program informed me of the last time I opened Band-in-a-Box®:

In the Piano Roll window, the 'Ghost Note' function allows you to view a single-channel, and see notes on all other channels display in light grey. This is useful when working with multi-channel tracks.

Want a bigger guitar display? Drag the bottom end of the Guitar Window to change its size, or press the SETTINGS button to set a custom size.

The Printout can use left and right MARGINS. This is useful to make printouts for small paper size or 3 hole paper that requires margins.

Edit | Nudge Chords/Melody. Let's say that you have entered a complete song chord progression, and you then realize that all of the chords starting at bar 23 are 1 beat to late. You can use this feature to slide your chords over by 1 beat.
