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)

Tony,

Twenty years worth of music! Very generous of you to share this with us Tony. Thank you very much!

Note to ALL: If you have DropBox and decide to download all the SGU song files there is a download all option. Click on the download option in the top, right corner of the screen then select either direct download or save to DropBox. DropBox will select all the files then compile the files into one compressed file. The compressed file size is about 35 MB.

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.

Thanx so much for sharing these files with us. 20 years of work is a lot to share! I know that I will find songs in here that I currently do not have.

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.

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.

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.

Thanks, Tony, for allowing us to hear your fine music.

One question: since I've direct downloaded as a .zip file, what would be the best way to get it into BiaB to be able to listen?

I have BiaB 2017 Ultraplus Pak for Mac.

Hi Tony,
Thanks for sharing your awesome work!

I have BiaB Ultraplus Pak 2017 for Mac (latest version for Mac thusfar) and have direct downloaded your .zip file. After unzipping, where should I place the files (I assume they are .SGU) for best listening within the BiaB program?

Thanks again. Keep up the great work!

This is fun. I just took Amazing Grace switched to the equivalent Real Track style and added a suitable piano and a new very usable version of a classic. I'll give it a spin next gig.

Thanks Tony!!

But I am beginner. :-((

I tried to download "All the tings you are" song.
I assigned the instruments to the bass and piano track with sforzando.
But I do not hear anything. I only hear the drum realtrack
What can I do?
I do not want to unfroze your tracks.

if I click in notation editor I hear the sound. I can not hear the sound when I play the song whith my Behringer audio UMC204HD device.
This is my configuration.
Thanks for any help.

Thanks for the feedback, you are all very welcome.

I just saw the Queen movie and have been motivated to create more BIAB Queen songs. It's quite a challenge creating appropriate tracks and even harder to play them on keyboard - I am no Freddie Mercury.

Tony, you mentioned that it did not feel generous because there was no monetary value....but I am back to tell you that all the TIME you have saved me is worth it's weight in gold (if time had weight....or wait....forget it.... grin )

Again, Thank You for these, it has been a BLAST working thru them! cool

I want to express my thanks to Tony for this free donation of a life-long collection of so many styles of music. It saves all of us so much time, even if we only use these files as a starting point.

A BIG Thank you !

If you are using a midi keyboard for the midi instruments, I believe you need to UNCHECK the use VSTi box?

Thanks Tony for your wonderful generosity.
I'm a beginner on keyboard and have reached the stage where I want backing tracks to play along to.
Are the sheet music pages available?
If not this is still a resource which is extensive, well executed and beyond what anyone could expect from another.
Thank you again.

I also play keyboard but cannot play by ear or memorize songs. Every one of by BIAB arrangements has a piece of sheet music that I have either had for decades (some from my mother from the 1920's) or I have bought separately or in one of dozens of compilation albums I have bought and more recently downloaded - mainly from musicnotes.com. The advantage of musicnotes is that you can often choose the key which means you can avoid difficult keys by choosing say Key F instead of Key E to avoid playing in 4 sharps. You can also preview the whole song before buying to make sure the arrangement is worth having - some pop/rock songs don't appeal to a keyboard player.

I always try to listen to the song on YouTube to help get the best tempo and style but also to see how the original artists handle repeats which are often nothing like the repeats shown on the sheet music. I always create one long BIAB song (no built-in repeats) and write the bar numbers on the sheet with words and arrows and colored highlights to remind me of the repeats as I play.

If you PM me with your email and a song title from my list I will send you a PDF of the sheet so you can see how I do things.

Tony

Hi Tony.

I downloaded your songs. Thank you so much!! It is so generous of you.

I have added some lyrics to "All I have to do is Dream" and "Crazy" and put them on my website. I have also put "All I Have to do is Dream" on Youtube.

Thanks for sharing/posting those BIAB songs for download .

About a year ago or so I downloaded them however my computer's video card got fried when a surge protector failed . Consequently all data on that desktop iMac was no longer viewable . The cost of replacing the video card even if it was available was unrealistic .

It's great to have those BIAB songs again .

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows was released in December 2018, and included many new features and enhancements - like the enhancements we made to our Notation window!

These include:
-Pressing the space bar plays the song from the current location.
-Double-clicking on the Standard mode Notation window (or on the time line in Editable or Staff Roll mode) plays the song from the current time location.
-The right-click menu in the Editable or Staff Roll mode Notation window has an option to change the current beat resolution. Previously, the only way to do this was to right-click on the time line.
-Clicking close to a stave line will put a note on the stave line instead of between stave lines. Previously, you had to click extremely close to a stave line to insert a note on it.
-In the Notation Windows Options dialog, the clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
-The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
-You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
-A new track type (Drums) is available for the Melody and Soloist tracks.
-Holding down the Ctrl key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
-There's a keystroke entry mode -the "N" mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, up/down cursor to change its pitch, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
-A new button in the Print Options dialog lets you quickly print a "chords only" fake sheet. You can also access this from the right-click menu on the Chord Sheet.
-You can now edit any track in the Event List Editor. When the dialog opens, it will show you the MIDI data in the current notation track.


There's detailed information on our 2019 notation enhancements here: Band-in-a-Box® 2019 New Feature - Notation Enhancements

Jump to the Notation topic in our Band-in-a-Box® 2019 new features video.

Band-in-a-Box® is a great resource for drummers! Practice with an on-demand back-up band, learn from the Pro's with RealDrums notation (RealCharts, new with version 2019), MIDI drums notation, or play in the Drum Kit Window!

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Mac Build 315 Update Available!

Attention Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Mac users - a new FREE patch update (build 315) is available!
Review details and download here

Summary of changes for build 315 (Nov 15, 2019):

Fixed: Exporting MusicXML files was not working.
Fixed: When using "Auto-Hand split Piano track" feature, exported MIDI files contain wrong note durations on the Piano track.
Fixed: Note-based lyrics were not included when exporting MIDI files.
Fixed: User should be prompted to save their song when exiting, if they had added or removed plugins.
Fixed: The Record Audio dialog always says “Track type is Stereo” even if the track type is mono.
Fixed: The [Audio Options…] button in the Record Audio dialog was launching the Audio Devices dialog instead of the Audio Settings dialog.
Fixed: Loops dialog title bar displays wrong track name.
Fixed: Large patch map files are not completely loaded (were limited to 1985 patches).
Fixed: Notation context menu > Edit Section Text… did not do anything.
Fixed: Notation context menu > Insert Section Text… did not do anything.

My Favorite Things - Nudge Chords in Band-in-a-Box®

Love this time saving feature.

Ever fill in the chordsheet fully or for part of song, and then discover you want to add or take away an extra beat or more somewhere in the chordsheet.

Nudge chords (melody) from the Edit Menu is your friend here, the dialog will give you all the options either to remove or add beats where its needed.

Love it.
