Here's my last submission, called:
BETWEEN THE LINES

I used:

_THISTLE.STY. Thistle Train Fingerpicking
RD: CountryTrain: a: Brushes Soft b: Brushes Hard :Shawn Soucy
RT592: Bass, Acoustic Bluegrass Doc Ev 100 , Dow Tomlin
RT2541: Pedal Steel, Background ModernPopCountry Ev 110 , Eddy Dunlap
RT2514: Guitar, Acoustic, Fingerpicking BoomChickJoe Ev16 110 , Joe Robinson
RT2513: Guitar, Acoustic, Fingerpicking BoomChickHighJoe Ev16 110 , Joe Robinson

I added my own acoustic guitar, vocals and strings arrangement. The realtracks come into play gradually in the song. Hope you enjoy it :-)
Here's the lyrics:

BETWEEN THE LINES

Maybe I'm trying to be someone I'm not
maybe I think I'm flying but I'm falling
maybe I'm running fast but I should stop
or maybe I should at least slow down and wait for you

Maybe I'm trying to say things I don't know
maybe I think I'm winning but I'm just wasting
maybe I should pick up the phone and call
and tell you right away that I love you

And maybe, maybe I should
if I could see what a difference it makes
and maybe, maybe I would
if I could force myself
and take my days as they come
like every wave as it breaks on the shore
and ask nothing more
just like you do

Maybe I'm trying to be someone I'm not
maybe I think I'm living but I'm just waiting
Maybe I should just take my car and go
and drive to the end of the world to find you

And maybe I should
if I could see the things I miss between the lines
and maybe, maybe I would
if I could push myself
and live one day at a time
like all the seagulls on this lake as they glide and soar
and ask nothing more
just like you do

And maybe, maybe I should
if I could finally understand what I’m trying to say
and maybe, maybe I would
if I could be myself
every step of the way
like all these old friends knocking at my door
and ask nothing more
just like they do
just like you do
just like I should do

Maybe I'm trying to be someone I'm not
maybe I think I'm flying
but I'm just falling

Jon

Really well delivered. A beautiful melody, and the choice of tracks has worked so well.

This is quite sensational. Good luck with this, it deserves recognition.

Band-in-a-Box® Features List!

Every version release of Band-in-a-Box® adds loads of new features and enhancements to the program, which we're sure can sometimes get "lost" in your knowledge of the program's capabilities.

Looking to learn about new features with a specific release? It's actually really easy to locate this information!

Learn tips on the new version (2019) by visiting Help | Tip of the Day and placing a check mark next to "Only Show Tips for Version 2019" (you'll also need to select "Show Tips at Startup", if it's not already).

Access the new features list for older versions in the Help Index of the program - from the left-menu, choose Contents | Features and a list of New Features will show - all the way back to Version 7!

#FeatureFriday

#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!

Click here to take a peak!

Special thanks to Mike and all the RealTracks Artists and PG Endorsers who stopped by. Stay tuned for our Booth Visitors and other happenings from Summer NAMM on July 18-20, 2019! If you find yourself at the event, come say "Hi!" to us at booth 234.

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows StylePicker Feature - Finding RealTracks & MIDI SuperTracks

Did you know... Within Band-in-a-Box®, quickly find styles that use RealTracks (or MIDI SuperTracks!) in a certain range by pressing the [Other] filter button in the StylePicker window and select "Styles that contain RealTracks or MIDI SuperTracks in a number range".

#WisdomWednesday

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.
