A World Apart

By David Snyder

This song is my prayer that we will be able to stop the senseless violence in this world gone mad. My deepest condolences to the families in pain across the world, of every color, creed and ethnicity.

https://soundcloud.com/david-snyder-gigs/a-world-apart

Ch 1

Tell me why
is it so hard for us
to understand
these angry hearts
tell me how
much longer
must we be
a world apart

V1

Some people blame it on money
some people blame it on the color of their skin
some people blame it on everybody else
but the body
that they're in

Ch

Tell me why
is it so hard for us
to understand
these angry hearts
tell me how
much longer
must we be
a world apart

V2

Some people blame it on yesterday
it makes them feel cheated to remember it
and other people just throwaway tomorrow
simply because .... they can't forget

CH

Tell me why
is it so hard for us
to understand
these angry hearts
tell me how
much longer
must we be
a world apart

Very nice David! Very Beatle-esque and especially John Lennon-ish.

Most people would have played it safe with a lower take on the melody, but your decision to move it into a higher register really paid off. It's part of what gave it that Beatles sound.

I liked the parts you added to the mix, especially your vocals and the synth strings. The other parts sort of blend into everything else, so it's harder to comment on them.

Anyway... my new DS favorite!

Yes, very reminiscent of Lennon! The lyrics are first class and the music setting perfect for them.
A well crafted song all round David!

David,

I couldn't help but draw comparisons between your 25 year old lyrics and today's world. It's sad that nothing seems to change. I hope your song makes a difference for the better somewhere to someone.

Noel

Zowie, David! (that rhymes with WOW-y, not Bowie)

This is OUTSTANDING. (I seem to be using that word a lot lately on the forum - there is so much good music being done.)

Awesome write. Incredible performance.

Cool arrangement/instrumentation. Good mix. Passionate vocal.

While other are hearing a Lennon/Beatles thing (which I understand), to me this is CLASSIC NEIL YOUNG - through and through - but, better than Mr. Young could do it.

You are killing it...

As Noel said it's sad that nothing seems to change...at least in these matters.

Great message and production. The vocal really portrays the appropriate
agony of the lyric.

Nealesque and Lennonesque all in a good way.

Cool production!

J&B

Beautiful song David. I must agree that John Lennon popped into my head as soon as the song started. Very cool. Awesome lyric and vocal. A very timely prayer.

David, this is so cool. Definitely has the Lennon feel. An important message and well crafted lyrics. I enjoyed the fact that you went for it with the vocal. The production sounds good and I especially enjoyed the chord choices. Well done. Tom

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.

To watch Henry's video, click here.

Have your own program tip to share? Feel free to post it to our Tips & Tricks forum.

#TipTuesday

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?

Band-in-a-Box® 2020 Portuguese for Windows is Here!

Existem mais de 50 novos recursos no Band-in-a-Box® 2020! Existem aprimoramentos no RealTracks (RealTracks vocais com som mais suave, RealTracks Engrossados, Substitutos de RealTracks e MultiFrases). A maioria dos RealDrums agora possui RealCharts (com notação de bateria precisa). Há um novo navegador de artistas do RealTracks para encontrar informações/biografias/links/listas de RealTracks em todos os artistas. 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.

Learn more about this patch and download it here.

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!
