Welcome to the forum. You've certainly set a high bar for yourself with your first post. I look forward to hearing more.

All the best,

OH YES that high bar is looming over my studio right now as I try to finish another tune. It's no Maybelline, but then I wasn't going to even post that song. I had written 4 that day, Then Maybelline just popped out and I could not get it out of my head. Recorded, and mixed it in about 4 hours. Then realized I had left out a verse in BIAB. That is why it is only 2:11sec.

I don't use anything but BIAB and RB so I'm not a technical guy. But, I do get lucky sometimes.

The language here is the "French", without the accent or expressions of Québec. Many peoples speak only this language, some others master english well because of the proximity to canadian maritime provinces (studies, business, family, friends), some others practice it averagely as I do myself (I am born in France, the main land wink )

Hello David! Welcome to the forum!

Somebody in the comments above characterized your song as country, but I didn't hear it that way... to me you sound like a cross between Cat Stevens and Gordon lightfoot... sort of a folky/Americana/Heartland hybrid.

That style isn't too far removed from the stuff that's currently being played at places like Merlefest... and given the momentum of genres very close to what you are doing, you might consider riding the wave and using more bluegrass instruments in your songs. They'd fit well, and I've noticed that using a banjo in a song doesn't necessarily make it sound like bluegrass.

Anyway, nice song! If you were tutored by (the other) David, I'm guessing you live in NC too? Man, this forum is being taken over by North Carolinians! ;-)

Well Pat THANKS! Cat Stevens and Gordon Lightfoot I definitely listened enough to those two. Thanks for the compliment. I live in Raleigh NC and work with the other David (MENTOR) Snyder see posts above. But, I find it interesting you mentioned Merlfest. My biggest influence for the last 4 years has been the Kruger Brothers. And if you know Merlfest you know them well as they are a mainstay there. Huge fans and friends with Doc Watson. There is a mandolin in the mix on "Maybelline" its on the off beat. I have a new tune I'm working on that has a lead Banjo, 2 - 12 string guitars, 2 electric guitars, a Nashville/Country drum kit, and Upright bass, it's in 3/4 Waltz Swing time. Its my first attempt to create a custom style. I call it rockin' the grass. Writing and singing in 3/4 timing is tricky for me so I have a lot of work before this one is going to come out.

Ah, Pat, let's not forget that Raleigh, North Carolina is officially the Bluegrass Capital of the World.

smile

International Bluegrass Music Festival?? It moved here from Nashville. So they can say they are the country capital, but we ARE the bluegrass mecca man. Appalachia, son. smile Doc Watson. Well I guess you know where he came from. North Carolina.

By the way, some guy looking for money in Tennessee wanted to know if he could come to Raleigh to teach people how to play the guitar.

I didn't know a polite way to tell him that there are about a thousand guys and ladies around here who could eat him for lunch. That all we do around here. Pick guitar. Oh, and we make software. That too.

Thanks Everyone for listening to my song Maybelline, I cannot believe it has almost 3000 plays. I'm gun shy. The next songs I'm working on are not even close to this one. Lots of crumpled up paper on my studio floor. But, I'm having fun and that's what really counts.

Sound-Guy has been using Band-in-a-Box® for many, many, many, many, many years - and we still managed to surprise him with some great new features! Read his latest review to learn more about his favorite additions for 2020!

"Band-in-a-Box continues to evolve as an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to produce not only new compositions and arrangements, but also perform them with excellent musical “talent”. It also provides educational and training tools for keyboardists and guitarists. It’s easy to use the basic functions, and challenging enough to keep you occupied for years. BIAB provides education, inspiration, a “live” band to aid in practicing, and anything from backing tracks to full performances for recording."
-Sound-Guy, www.gearslutz.com

How I Use Band-in-a-Box® to Create Shots/Chops

Band-in-a-Box® user Henry Clarke creates a lot of great songs with Band-in-a-Box®, and he's shared his steps for creating the shots/chops within his recent song Lonely in a Crowd.

Uncommon RealTracks Instruments for Band-in-a-Box®

Today is Uncommon Instrument Awareness Day.

Examples of "uncommon instruments" include anything from Spoons to the Wheelharp to the Singing Ringing Tree, and more!
(there's probably more instruments out there that we DON'T know than we DO know)

Although our RealTracks collection doesn't include many 'uncommon instruments', we do offer some pretty unique choices!

On top of the usual varieties we offer for Piano, Guitar, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet, Bass, Tuba, Trumpet, Trombone, and more - our RealTracks library also offers a nice selection of Shakuhachi and Kalimba - there's even a Koto RealTrack included in Set 212!

Kalimba: RealTracks Set 271
Koto: RealTracks Set 212
Shakuhachi: RealTracks Sets 193 & 212

What's the most surprising RealTrack Instrument that you've come across?

Um novo Navegador de recursos permite que o usuário novo ou "esquecido" encontre e use facilmente a maioria dos recursos/teclas de atalho/documentos em uma única janela. Equalizar Tempoaprimoramentos na Seleção de Músicas, baixo/bateria ou apenas bateria nas introduções automáticas, 3.400 títulos adicionados, aprimoramentos no MusicXML, visualização de guitarra para "Canhotos" e "Estudantes", aprimoramentos de arrastar e soltar, exibição de várias janelas do Interpretador de Acordes de Áudio e muito mais!

COMPRE/ATUALIZE, & BAIXE AGORA!

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 Mac Update Ready!

Just because Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac is here doesn't mean we've forgotten our 2019 users!

If you're still using Band-in-a-Box® 2019, make sure you download the latest patch update (b324) for an updated splash screen (macOS 10.12 and 10.13 users), smoother Song Titles dialog, access to your (purchased) RealTracks Set 328, and we've corrected the reported issue with opening songs from older versions of Band-in-a-Box in the 2019 version.

Review - Loops-with-Style PAK 2 for Band-in-a-Box® 2020

"Dr. Dave" Walker is at it again! You may remember his recent reviews of both Band-in-a-Box 2020 for Mac and Xtra Styles PAK 9 - now he has something to say about our Loops-with-Style PAK 2 - check it out: Click here to read...

With money being tight for most musicians, this is a wonderful gift for those on a limited budget. At $29, it offers months and years of fun and experimentation, bringing many ideas to fruition as songs with enough variation so that your audience doesn’t jump to "aw, that's a computer!" while still keeping the power of the software in your hands.
-"Dr. Dave" Walker

Thank you again Dr. Dave for the great review!

Did you know we have a My Favorite Things forum? We encourage you to share your favorite features in Band-in-a-Box and RealBand there, along with what features you use the most and why - we LOVE getting feedback!

Like the latest post from Tangmo:

My New Favorite Thing - Extra Style PAK #9 with Loop Pack #2

I set up an eight bar progression with some simple pushes, shots, holds, and rests for reference. Then I started auditioning styles--Three hours later, I am invigorated, inspired, and just plain smiling big. Really CHOICE! From "down to earth" to eclectic, this is a really fun pak.

Great job, folks!

Thanks Tangmo!
