It does work well in BB. Go to my music page and listen to 2 songs. #47 Tender Touch and #48 Sad Goodbye. Both use the layering approach. They start out simple and new elements are added to the mix as it goes along. It builds.
Tender Touch was actually written and submitted for one of those MTV TV shows (16 & Pregnant) if I recall the details correctly. The scene was the main character had just weathered a "major crisis event" that was kinda bad but things were looking up..... a happy ending song that starts gently and builds to a nice happy ending as everyone comes together. It needed to start with acoustic guitar. Guitar... piano.... drums and bass.... and strings toward the end. It was not selected for the show.
OMG, I am working on something like this right now. My new Session guitarist picked acrostic at the intro and Kirk Hunter Virtuoso Ensembles coming in. But then I add about a dozen other instruments and tracks. Maybe I should rethink all that other stuff...

I like doing that as well Herb. I build an instrument map in a spreadsheet for a song and have much fewer instruments at the start and build up. I basically just color squares in where I want each instrument to play.

"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."
