I have made all my BIAB cover songs available for download using this Dropbox link. There are about 750 songs plus a list (CSV file) to make browsing easier. No melodies of course so no copyright issues. You should be able to download any file, let me know if there are problems.

https://www.dropbox.com/sh/azh0bigv4zarj3v/AABDFw1vLd7Zx4EkSBjkURMKa?dl=0

I have created these songs over nearly 20 years using BIAB so many of them have not been updated to use RT’s but the chord sheets may be useful for some people looking for a song. If anyone would like to take my files and improve them with a more sophisticated version using RT’s etc – be my guest.

In the early years I created BIAB chord sheets mainly for songs in the great American songbook but in the last few years have included lots of classic country, pop, rock, jazz, disco etc. I just love hearing a song from my youth that I had forgotten about then searching for the sheet music with chords to create a BIAB song. I have no ear to create my own chords and need the written music to play my keyboard.

I use BIAB purely for my own amusement to create backing for playing the keyboard (plus playing at the occasional party) and I have sheet music for every song with every bar numbered on the paper copies to correspond with the BIAB chord sheet. All 750 songs are in 3 ring binders arranged by genre which is why the BIAB files are just lumped together in one folder – except for a folder of Irish songs.

What generosity! a huge thanks smile

Edit : I'm playing them, what a wonderful job, thank you for giving us the chance to travel 20 years of your life smile
It is surely a problem related to my Biab, but on several songs, I do not hear any instruments except the drums (especially the open and the closed hat). Someone has encountered this problem ?
Edit2 : Solved by disabling freeze button on those instruments smile
Remains the drums (hear only hh on some songs)

That’s very generous Tony.

I used to have a few dozen Brazilian jazz downloads on my website but I didn’t keep them up when RealTracks arrived. That would be quite a job now.

Thank you Tony.

Very generous share.

I have tried a few of them and your chordal arrangements and real track matching are fantastic.

Now my mission will be to find the sheet music ( pdf format ) with the melodies for my favorite songs.

FYI - My starting place for sheet music is Music Notes:

Another good site is Sheet Music Plus:

Good luck.

Very nice Tony! I get calls for all sorts of gigs and I'll wind up looking for charts for stuff I don't know. I don't need any melodies, just the chords and these files are great.

The first one I tested out is Beyond the Sea because I had to do that for a Xmas party and all my charts that I could find have it in one key, no modulations. Yours has the mods. YES! That one file would have saved me a ton of time going through all my other stuff trying to find one with all the mods.

I couldn't get it to change styles until I realized all tracks were frozen. After I unfroze them it's all good.

Bob

Thank you for the positive responses. I don’t feel I am being exactly generous because the files don’t have any monetry value and it’s a pleasure to share them with other BIAB users. I have always thought that there isn’t enough emphasis on the forum about the creating and sharing of BIAB cover song backings. I suspect the majority of people use BIAB for covers and as long as the melody isn’t posted there should be no copyright issues. Perhaps there could be forum discussion specifically for sharing covers. Surely PG would have no problem.

It occurred to me after I posted the files that a few notes about how I have constructed the chord sheets would be helpful.

STYLES – Some of the styles are from Norton (those beginning with #) or from other internet sources or you may not have bought them from PG so your BIAB program may not find all the styles I have used. My BIAB defaults to ZZJAZZ.sty when that happens but that may just be the way I have it set up. I have added the style name to the list of songs on Dropbox so you can see what the intended style was for every song. Let me know if you are missing a style and I will see what I can do.

CHORUSES – I don’t use them. Every song is a single chorus. Without the sheet music in front to you it might be difficult to follow the repeats. I usually followed the repeats/bridges suggested by the music but sometimes I would watch a performer on YouTube and copy the original artist.

INTRODUCTIONS – Lots of my songs use the intro from the music and with American Songbook songs the intros can be quite long. Some songs have no intros or intros generated by BIAB.

ENDINGS – I nearly always use the same simple ending i.e. hold the last chord with three dots (e,g, C…) then finish with any other chord and one dot (e.g. A.) Sometimes I will mute an instrument or the drums on the C… chord to make a smoother ending. Occasionally I use a fade out.
A few years ago one of the new BIAB versions started screwing up my endings by not recognising this method and it keeps playing to the last bar. If any of the files do this just unfreeze, regenerate and refreeze. This solves the problem for that song. I never did get an answer to that problem.

SOLOS – I love to use solos particularly with the repeats so some songs have the solo track muted at the start.

FROZEN – As you have discovered, many songs are frozen especially those with RT’s

Tony

Tony, thanks a heap for these, I have had a listen to some already. I find enjoyable and interesting hearing the different slants on the same song. I can see I'll be busy for some time going through a number of these and gleaning from your expertise.
