Clicketyclick: Sold to the Devil (PS posted a newly mastered version July 27th)

Xtra Styles 3 contest or not; when i heard the _REYNOSA.STY immediately some lyrics i penned years ago popped up, all about a feller i met. Nice guy BTW, playing keyboard in nightclubs and, for a not to be named here, rich preacher owned local reli-organization holding mass sessions in an old Cinema building.

Reworked the lyrics to a 3/4 beat, and i experimented a bit with a borrowed Voicelive Rack, this inspired by Bob Buford, to create a church crowd type choir background here.

Sold to the Devil © Artspurg 2004-2017 SABAM

For ages and ages, he played his guitar
On smoky rough stages, and real evil bars
Not really that good, he didn't get far
Then he saw the Light, became a big star

He saw his Jesus, his Lord and his Light
No más sufrimiento; una vida so bright
He makes good money, he made a stand
Sold to the devil, in a Christian band

So well respected; the money and gold
Riding a Benz, owns a gold-top of old
Those chicas bonitas, so many around
He saw the Light, oh boy he was found

He saw his Jesus, his Lord and his Light
No more to endure, a life that shines bright
He makes good money, he made a stand
Sold to the devil, in a Christian band

So come and join Jesus, walk in the Light
Start praying in public, smile and shine bright
All this good money, when you make a stand
Sold to the devil, in a Christian band



The style source used _REYNOSA.STY makes it to be probably be filed in the Country dept, though it's more of a folksong IMO.

The BIAB realdrums did not workout alas, regarding the snare counts. This since the arrangement is not actually 3/4, but sometimes has 6/4, maybe even 9/4 measures included. The guitars are BIAB, the great accordion playing & atmosphere too, and bass is BIAB. The latter i had to steer by inserting chords with added bass notes, see picture below. And then added quite a bit of melodic juice. Hopefully it tears down some planned Trump-walls down south (Oops, could'nt resist, being a Bernie fan).

You know...I think I may have met this fellow playing in a Mariachi band down in Denver for Cinco de Mayo. grin

Fine job. Excellent work on lyrics, choice of style, and use of the VL Rack. Gonna go get some tacos and listen a few more times while dancing around the room. Keep 'em coming.

BB cool

#TipTuesday - The Band-in-a-Box® 2020 Feature Browser

Don't forget about the new Feature Browser added to Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac! (and Windows)

This feature is GREAT to help you locate a feature within the program!

How does it work? Access this feature by clicking on the [?] button on the main screen of the program or pressing the / Enter keys on the Chord Sheet. This dialog lists many features of the program and allows you to browse them, find the feature by text filter, read descriptions about the feature, find how to launch the feature, access to the online information or video about the feature, and do more.

Examples of a few situations where this feature is helpful:
-You know about a feature but don't know how to find it. Just type a part of the feature name and you'll see the hotkeys, menu, and toolbar info on how to launch it. For example, if you want to launch the Chord Builder but don’t know how to do it, type "builder" in the text filter, and you will quickly find the Chord Builder.
-You are exploring available features for Band-in-a-Box. For example, if you are a guitar player, type the word "guitar" and you'll see what's available.
-You prefer "one-stop-shopping" and would like to launch features from the same dialog.
-You are learning the program and like to browse or watch videos about topics you're interested in.
-You can't remember hotkeys and want to review them.

Read more about this new feature here, or watch the video.

#TBT Band-in-a-Box® 2017

Three years ago we were just rounding up our BETA testers to help finish up the testing of our Band-in-a-Box® 2017 for Mac!

With that version, we redesigned the main screen GUI, added support for popular .SFZ sound format as well as PG Music’s Hi-Q sounds (sforzando SFZ Synth.), added Natural Arrangements options and Hi-Q Guitar RealCharts, applied many, many, many enhancements to the existing powerful program features, and more!

Now, three years later, we're thrilled to say that we're already done BETA testing, and weeks into the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac release! Of course, that means we're having a SALE on Upgrade packages, but only until April 30th!
