Soundcloud link: Take A Break

Well now...this is something pretty different. BIAB allows you to do some very cool things with music...understatement, yea, I know. This little snippet of a song is titled "Take A Break" and was created as a "break song" that a band might play when they're closing a set and heading to the bar or the restroom. The info below has MIDI references but if you have all the proper RealTracks they will be substitued for the MIDI in the CHUKSHUF.STY.

The Telecaster riffs include everything I could think of to throw in there including some Ray Flacke, some banjo-style tripletts, some double-stopped Chuck B licks, and even some pedal steel licks. If you're gonna show off, nothing like a break song to jam in everything and go out with a flourish.

Read the following text out loud in your best frontman voice, while the song is playing and you'll get the idea:

"OK, we're gonna take a little break right now, "a little pause for the cause." The drummer needs go to the bathroom and the rest of us need a good stiff drink. Remember, if you like us, we're Blues Rift, and if not we're the Backstreet Boys. Otherwise, thanks for coming out. Tell your friends. We'll be right back. Don't go away now, ya hear?"

Music is so much fun, dontcha think? grin

Hello Rob,

Yep, a great break song! I did a little number, also, for our band that we used most of the time.

Very catchy and leaves the crowd wanting more - maybe they'll stay and dance & drink one more set! Nice work!

An yep - music is a bunch of fun!

That was cool!

great sound and licks on the guitar

I remember playing break songs mostly when I was a bass

player in a club/road band, it was a chance to just cut loose

for awhile.

Thanks everyone. Pleased you enjoyed it. I'd like to read any interesting spiel you use or have heard used to address the audience/fans at break time. I've heard some real doozies...good and bad...from various bands

Thanks for listening,
Rob

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

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!
