A little story: a few weeks ago I made a cross-country plane trip..just after receiving BIAB 2013..I spent the entire time "constructing" several songs. I think it's so great to have a tool kit like can "architect" your music while being away from mic/keyboard/live instruments...and get so close to finished product!
I worked on 3 songs: "Django', which I posted the other day, this bluegrass tune, and one other that I'm just finishing up.

I wanted to use BIAB's bluegrass styles, and, after completing all the music, I learned about this place near my town, Fiddler's Grove, where they have one of the longest-running old-time fiddle competitions...I'd be interested to hear if anyone's ever been there!

"Fiddler's Grove"

I'm heading 'cross the Yadkin river, for the Blue Ridge hills
Daddy's banjo and my grandpa's fiddle, come to show my skills
Down in Fiddler's Grove
Down in Fiddler's Grove

Dad and Grandpa lived on Brushy Mountain, played right here every May
Tales of music that they keep recountin', up to this present day
Down in Fiddler's Grove
Down in Fiddler's Grove

Western Carolina's got the best fiddlers
They play that bluegrass real sweet
Double-stoppin', fancy chopping, slidin', and shufflin'
And my, that blessed ramblin' beat!
Tap your feet!

Folks jumpin' on the stage and cloggin', heel and toe, stomp that shoe!
Masters coolin' DOWN THEIR bows with rosin, listen up- there's somethin' new!
Down in Fiddler's Grove
Down in Fiddler's Grove
Yes-sir, I'm down in Fiddler's Grove!
Yes indeed.
Western Carolina's got the best fiddlers
They play the hottest howlin' licks
Mandolins and 5-string banjoes, double bass and dobro
The band can't hold their flamin' picks!
Blessed day!

Fiddlers showin' up at Van Hoy's bandstand, come in, start a jam!
Huddle with a banjo or a mandolin man, join in, it's quite a slam!
Down in Fiddler's Grove
Down in Fiddler's Grove
God Lord, I'm here in Fiddler's Grove!
Yes indeed.

Hey Tano,

I liked when you added the harmony in. For some reason - at least to me it sounded like you got more comfortable singing it after the break.

What always impresses me with you Tano is your creative spirit. It's always interesting to hear what you've come up with next.

Make sure to check out the latest Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Windows review from Sound-Guy (Dennis) at click here.

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."

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!
