A great song from the Toy Story film series.
I can't post my 'original' guitar audio recording of this great tune in Showcase as a) it's a 'cover' and b) I dont do video.
But - my good friend Phil McGarrick DOES do video and he's a pretty good guitarist too.
So here is his video of him playing my arrangement of 'You've Got A Friend In Me' to my BIAB BT. Hope you followed all that. ;-)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=96PhmFkYGVw

The arrangement was created entirely in BIAB, apart from the Clarinet which is a separate audio recording added at the DAW stage.
The Style is _2Pence with additional RTs -
RealTracks in style: 1205:Bass, Acoustic, GypsyJazzBallad Sw 110 ('A' Only)
RealTracks in style: 1791:Piano, Acoustic, Rhythm DixielandMedium Sw 110
RealTracks in style: 1210:Guitar, Acoustic, Rhythm GypsyJazzBalladJohn Sw 110
RealTracks in style: 1966:Clarinet, Soloist DixielandMediumA-B Sw 110
RealTracks in song: 1543:Synth Pad, PopBelieve Ev16 065
RealTracks in song: 1792:Tuba, DixielandMedium Sw 110
RealDrums [in style:NashvilleBrushesHillbillySwing: a: Sidestick, Brushesb: Brushes, Stick

Don't you just love that beautiful Gibson J200.
The more I attempt with BIAB, the more amazed I am at its capabilities and what it draws out of me.
Cheers
Ian

Great performance. Phil delivered a masterful rendition, (as I'm sure others here have equally done...)
Excellent!

Great playing. Check out this one he did. Really interesting perspective with the camera mounted on the head stock.

Ian,

What a great song arrangement! Thank you for sharing this with us. In my opinion your song arrangement is professional quality.

PG Music should obtain the rights to this performance and use it to demonstrate how powerful and professional sounding Band-in-a-Box can be when used by someone that is talented, knowledgeable and skilled.

Sorry for the delay.
Thank you to all who commented on the very kind words both for Phil and myself. Much appreciated.
It was Trev (our VideoTrack) who got me on the right road in a Post in the General section by offering _2Pence as a Style that might suit what I looking for. Boy, did it!
Filled it out with a few extra RTs - that TUBA for example is perfect in there.
I use it now in my general Club Night 'gigs' Set and it always comes as a big surprise as its is so different to my normal "Shadows" type material.
Very bests
Ian and Phil

Review - Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Windows

Make sure to check out the latest Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Windows review from Sound-Guy (Dennis) at www.gearslutz.com: click here.

Sound-Guy has been using Band-in-a-Box® for many, many, many, many, many years - and we still managed to surprise him with some great new features! Read his latest review to learn more about his favorite additions for 2020!

"Band-in-a-Box continues to evolve as an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to produce not only new compositions and arrangements, but also perform them with excellent musical “talent”. It also provides educational and training tools for keyboardists and guitarists. It’s easy to use the basic functions, and challenging enough to keep you occupied for years. BIAB provides education, inspiration, a “live” band to aid in practicing, and anything from backing tracks to full performances for recording."
-Sound-Guy, www.gearslutz.com

How I Use Band-in-a-Box® to Create Shots/Chops

Band-in-a-Box® user Henry Clarke creates a lot of great songs with Band-in-a-Box®, and he's shared his steps for creating the shots/chops within his recent song Lonely in a Crowd.

Uncommon RealTracks Instruments for Band-in-a-Box®

Today is Uncommon Instrument Awareness Day.

Examples of "uncommon instruments" include anything from Spoons to the Wheelharp to the Singing Ringing Tree, and more!
(there's probably more instruments out there that we DON'T know than we DO know)

Although our RealTracks collection doesn't include many 'uncommon instruments', we do offer some pretty unique choices!

On top of the usual varieties we offer for Piano, Guitar, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet, Bass, Tuba, Trumpet, Trombone, and more - our RealTracks library also offers a nice selection of Shakuhachi and Kalimba - there's even a Koto RealTrack included in Set 212!

Kalimba: RealTracks Set 271
Koto: RealTracks Set 212
Shakuhachi: RealTracks Sets 193 & 212

Just because Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac is here doesn't mean we've forgotten our 2019 users!

Review - Loops-with-Style PAK 2 for Band-in-a-Box® 2020

"Dr. Dave" Walker is at it again! You may remember his recent reviews of both Band-in-a-Box 2020 for Mac and Xtra Styles PAK 9 - now he has something to say about our Loops-with-Style PAK 2 - check it out: Click here to read...

With money being tight for most musicians, this is a wonderful gift for those on a limited budget. At $29, it offers months and years of fun and experimentation, bringing many ideas to fruition as songs with enough variation so that your audience doesn’t jump to "aw, that's a computer!" while still keeping the power of the software in your hands.
-"Dr. Dave" Walker

Thank you again Dr. Dave for the great review!

Like the latest post from Tangmo:

My New Favorite Thing - Extra Style PAK #9 with Loop Pack #2

I set up an eight bar progression with some simple pushes, shots, holds, and rests for reference. Then I started auditioning styles--Three hours later, I am invigorated, inspired, and just plain smiling big. Really CHOICE! From "down to earth" to eclectic, this is a really fun pak.

Great job, folks!
