Here is a song I co-wrote back in the late 1970s.

https://52tracksblog.com/2016/07/07/track-27-new-confederate-blues/

There are some BIAB MIDI tracks as well as a few RTs.

Comments appreciated.

Fred

Very cool music and interesting write Fred!! This is probably my favorite of yours. The melody really draws you in, and that pedal steel sounds custom. Is that an RT? Beautifully done in every way!! Take care. Greg

Always a good listen.
Very evocative - great arrangement - you have a very impressive body of work.
Nicely sung as usual.

Greg, the pedal steel was played by David Spires in 2002. He is now in Josh Turner's touring band.

Hi Fred,

I enjoyed this. It's a very interesting set of chords you've used. I really like the way the song weaves in and out of major and minor sounds.

Like Greg, I was mesmerised by the the pedal steel. The melody and the arrangement are really powerful.

A terrific listen.

Regards,
Noel

Thanks, Noel. Yes, David's pedal steel is awesome. It is an interesting chord progression that Dale Jernberg came up with. Glad you liked it.

Thanks, Leo. I deleted a bunch of tracks that were great but clouded the main arrangement. My voice has improved quite a bit in the last five or six year. One good thing about aging....

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

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!
