Here's a demo of a song I've recently written. Hope you'll like it!

BLOW LIKE THE WIND
© 2019 FGVillegas

verse 1:
Holy Spirit dwell in me
Stir my heart that I may be
A vessel of Your love
A channel of Your sympathy
Holy Spirit lift me up
From this dry and barren land
Spirit rise, O Spirit blow like the wind
Blow like the wind
Blow like the wind

verse 2:
Spirit come like a mighty wind
Spread my arms, come deep within
When my faith seems dead and gone
Breathe me life to carry on
Spirit speak Your Word to me
Magnify the gifts You’ve bestowed on me
Spirit rise, O Spirit blow like the wind
Blow like the wind
Blow like the wind

chorus:
Blow like the wind, O Spirit come
Take all my fears when all I had is gone
Lash like the wind
And make me feel Your presence, Lord
O let me know You’re here
Blow like the wind
Blow like the wind

verse 3:
Holy Spirit drench my soul
With Your power, take control
Cleanse my spirit, make me whole
O I need You more and more
Spirit lead me to a place
Where I can feel Your warm embrace
Spirit rise, O Spirit blow like the wind
Blow like the wind
Blow like the wind
(repeat chorus)

bridge:
I can wet the water
I can burn the fire
Lord, increase my faith
My one desire
(repeat 2x)
(repeat chorus)

outro:
Blow like the wind
Blow like the wind

I really enjoyed this one! As Jim said, it is very uplifting and a very hopeful song. I really liked the mix you did as well - it sounds professional and concise. That aside it's nicely catchy, and I like how it isn't too over the top. Just a nice groove, catchy chorus, and some peaceful tones to it. Nice lyrics also!

Great work and thanks for sharing smile

Hello Froi, what a marvelous song I might say! Fantastic selection of instruments here and the instruments are layered nicely. The fiddle is a nice touch and love the vocals. Looking forward to hear more!

What a marvelous musical prayer asking for the Spirit to fill you, especially when faith becomes weak! I sure your prayer will be answered as you request. Beautifully done music and production. The BIAB ooh-aahs work naturally in this production--they feel like they belong, not an added effect. Excellent vocal.

Thanks!!! This is really part of my personal prayer.

I used 3 instances of the oohs-aahs to cover up the pause in some chord transitions. smile

PG Music News
RealBand® Works Great in Windows® 11!

Here's an introductory look at RealBand® running on the preview version of Windows® 11!

Watch the video.

Customers LOVE Band-in-a-Box® 2021!

Check out some of the latest Band-in-a-Box® feedback we've received:

"There's a saying 'Give a man a fish, feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, feed him for a lifetime.' That's exactly what my friend did in 1990. He taught me how to use BIAB and I've used it hundreds of time to do arraignment and to jam with any style band."

"Love BIAB. I use it daily. Their support is great too!"

"RealTracks are amazing!!! I use BIAB for backtracks in my solo act... Still using the basic package and it's all need..."

"I have used Band in A Box for many years. If it would have been around when I was young, I would have been a much better musician. I use it for all my songs I have written and recorded. With Band In A Box I can sit in my room and sound like a whole band without having to put up with them!"

"If you know something about music and take the time to learn the program, you can make it do some amazing things. It is a great help to songwriters who want to demo their song without paying for studio time. It makes changes and tweaks much easier as well."

"Been using it for so many years. It's a great tool. The instruments that I don't have or play make up the void and it saves so much time. I use this program for every song I write."

"Great tool for the songwriter!"

"An essential part of my studio! I write songs on piano, but I'm not a pianist by a long way. BIAB is like having a roomful of session players in your studio, and just the simple act of taking your basic idea and hearing a skilled pianist play it presents so many new ideas and options you hadn't thought of."

"Powerful, easy to use, inexpensive and they even split the modest payments up if you want. No complaints. Lots of satisfaction."

"I added a steel guitar to a fully produced original. He followed every change like he was in the studio reading the chart. Fascinating technology!"

"I have used it to make backing tracks for six CD's with about 12 songs on each. They make a great gift!"

"It's simply a necessity - buy it now - the staff and support do a great job as well!"

"A great tool for us songwriters!"

"I LOVE Band-in-a-Box!"

"I see it as a very worthwhile investment. In fact, from initial purchase about 8 years ago, using the backing tracks I have made, my income from that investment has returned over 5,000% on the investment!"

continued...

Do you have something to say about Band-in-a-Box®? Post your own thoughts for Windows or Mac version today!

Band-in-a-Box® - Boxing Clever - Sound on Sound #TBT

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® is more than 30 years old? I stumbled across this 1990 magazine article explaining the relatively new program, and think it's an enjoyable read for any Band-in-a-Box user - it really shows that we are always listening to user feedback when developing our program!

Read the article: Boxing Clever: Band-In-A-Box Software

A few of my favorite statements:

"The intention of PG Music's Band-In-A-Box package is to couple that speed and convenience with the improved flexibility of the personal computer. Versions are available for the Atari ST, Mac, and PC compatibles. Have the programmers succeeded? And can they rid themselves of the stigma of the auto-accompaniment section? Given the above state of affairs, the first hurdle that the program has to overcome is one of acceptance and, frankly, a name like 'Band-In-A-Box' is a bad start."

(I think our name was a great start!)

"The final results are, to say the least, impressive. Band-In-A-Box achieves something that most hardwired auto-accompaniment sections have never been able to do - inject a degree of feel into the music. It really does sound more human than so many of the computer generated pieces I've heard."

"...I'm quite convinced that PG Music will have a winner on their hands. This is one piece of software that you can get more out of than you put in."
