Yeah... thanks.... this is totally a BB project.... I think there was 4 lead guitar tracks and I enveloped them in Sonar X1 to pick and choose the solo.

This is currently in the mail to a publisher which specializes in holiday music.

I thought the bass was a little heavy. Other than that cool idea and nicely done.

Very catchy song, good vocals and a really good use of RT's. I think it's a good mix too, except for 2 things.
I agree with Josie the bass is too hot, but not by much,... and, I just kept wishing the drummer would go to the hi-hat on the verses, I think it would add a nice dynamic level change. But then again you may have wanted the ride cymbal throughout... I'm sorta of the school of: hi-hat on verses and ride cymbal on chorus & solo's, so take that for what it's worth.

Good Job!

Greg

Get Inspired with the Band-in-a-Box® Title Generator!

There can be many triggers that could inspire you to write a song... but what if you're wanting to write a song, and are having trouble finding the inspiration you need?

Jump start your creativity using the Title Generator feature in Band-in-a-Box®.

I love this feature - it delivers some beautiful results!

To access this feature:

Mac: select Edit | Chords | Auto-Generate Song Title menu command (control+shift+S). The song title will appear in the Title window! Repeat the Auto-Generate Song Title command until the program comes up with a suitable title for your song. Band-in-a-Box® will keep generating new titles for as long as it takes to get the right one.

Windows: click on the "Generate Title" button within the main screen of the program and you can choose to "auto-generate" a song title which will appear right in the Title field of your song, or for a more varied selection choose to "generate multiple titles" and you'll be taken to the Title Generator window, which can generate a list of 50 song titles for you!

I've just done this, and won't bother list all 50 here - but the "top 10" I've chosen from my generated list are:
Eloquent Laugh
Statuesque Luck
Considering a Rainbow
Brief Fling, Acknowledged
Something for a Sandpiper
Happy Runaround
Cheatin' Skies
Then Came a Rose
The Mention of My Love
Eternal Raincheck

Give it a try!

The resource for this feature can also be edited, allowing you to customize the results.
(to do this, review the file TITL1.TXT within the BB Data folder.)
