In the light of the Corona Virus Pandemic Buddy and I wrote this song hopefully to give us direction and comfort...also my cousin challenged me to write a song so Buddy and I did this in two days..HaHa Jeremy I win!

I used the Somber Country style off of BiaB and added 832 Electric rhythm and 1787 fiddle then I stacked BELIEVE.STY Praise & Worship w/Piano on top of the mix to give me a bigger band

Excellent song. Strong vocal with super lyrics.

To really nitpick I would being the vocal more up front in some of the verses. Your voice gets a little buried in spots. Not a biggie but it might improve this masterpiece.

I really like this one!

Well done, Dan. Really cool Style combo. Like Mario, I'd like the vocal a bit more out front, but this is a wonderful song, and great use of BiaB.

Hi Dan ...

A terrific song for the times. Very well done in all respects. And yes, the lead vocal could be just a tad more up front. Congrats on an excellent song. Wishing you the very best ...

Alan

Really well done. The fiddle is a nice touch, as are the supporting harmony vocals.

As Mario said, the balance on the vocal could use some work.

I enjoyed this a lot! smile

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Get Inspired with the Band-in-a-Box® Title Generator!

There can be many triggers that could inspire you to write a song... but what if you're wanting to write a song, and are having trouble finding the inspiration you need?

Jump start your creativity using the Title Generator feature in Band-in-a-Box®.

I love this feature - it delivers some beautiful results!

To access this feature:

Mac: select Edit | Chords | Auto-Generate Song Title menu command (control+shift+S). The song title will appear in the Title window! Repeat the Auto-Generate Song Title command until the program comes up with a suitable title for your song. Band-in-a-Box® will keep generating new titles for as long as it takes to get the right one.

Windows: click on the "Generate Title" button within the main screen of the program and you can choose to "auto-generate" a song title which will appear right in the Title field of your song, or for a more varied selection choose to "generate multiple titles" and you'll be taken to the Title Generator window, which can generate a list of 50 song titles for you!

I've just done this, and won't bother list all 50 here - but the "top 10" I've chosen from my generated list are:
Eloquent Laugh
Statuesque Luck
Considering a Rainbow
Brief Fling, Acknowledged
Something for a Sandpiper
Happy Runaround
Cheatin' Skies
Then Came a Rose
The Mention of My Love
Eternal Raincheck

Give it a try!

The resource for this feature can also be edited, allowing you to customize the results.
(to do this, review the file TITL1.TXT within the BB Data folder.)
