Hi,

I'm a new user, having just bought BIAB a couple of weeks ago, and had a first play about tonight to try and record something. It's a basic blues in Bm with BIAB drums, bass.organ and blues harp with me playing rhythm and lead guitar.
Track is here: Blues in Bm

Looking forward to getting to know the program, recording, and picking up tips here!
cheers,
Dave

Hello, and welcome to the forum!

I really enjoyed this piece. As others have said before, there are not a lot of blues pieces being added to the forum. I'd love to see some more added to the showcase!

Look forward to your next share.

Wow Dave! Great post! You really have some fine guitar work on display here that would make B.B., Freddie and many others proud! Like the wah treatment in places too! Very good job! Thanks, Torrey

Nice work Dave, and welcome to the forums! I loved the "smokey" sort of vibe from this one. It has a calming, and mysterious feeling to it. I've always been a sucker for laid back blues of this nature.

Great job, and thanks so much for sharing! Can't wait to hear what else you come up with using Band-in-a-Box smile

Thanks very much for all your positive comments. I've started listening to some of the stuff here and some great music being made!
I'm a guitar teacher from Scotland, and spend so much time teaching and playing weddings/functions, that I've lost touch a wee bit with my own music. I bought Band in a Box in order to get back into songwriting and recording - I'm sure I learn so much here and look forward to spending more time checking out your stuff!
Cheers,
Dave

Reminded me a bit of master Santana during his Black Magic Woman days, and your way too short piece there is definitely my kind of music that left me craving for more by the end of it, but...Man! If that is your "first", I can't even begin to imagine where you'll be at with BBox in a year's time crazy

- I am massively impressed cool

Band-in-a-Box® - Freezing Tracks

Like what you hear in Band-in-a-Box®? Make sure to Freeze the track(s) or song! Once frozen, it won't be regeneraged or change when you play it again - and your choice isn't final, since you can unfreeze them just as easily:
-press the blue snowflake button within the track name of the mixer window
-press the blue snowflake button within the expanded toolbar of the program (Ctrl + T will swap between the two toolbar views), and select the track(s)

Note: If you want to force Band-in-a-Box® to generate tracks without adjusting the Freeze settings, hold down the Shift key as you press the [Generate and Play] button (the fly-by hint will remind you of that) or choose the menu command Play | Play Special | Generate (even if tracks are frozen).

To learn more about freezing your Band-in-a-Box® tracks or songs, visit Chapter 5: Playing Songs | Freezing tracks of our Online Manual.

One of our favourite products, and one that doesn’t seem to come up much in discussions about music making software, is Band-In-A-Box from PG Music. This is probably the longest established and certainly one of the most popular music making software packages of all time.
