Nice tune! I love me some echo-y drums. And some great guitar work too.

Thank you so much David! Im glad you enjoyed it.

BIAB has really opened up a range of new ways for me to express myself. This song has some of my favorite guitar pieces. That particular guitar is an old Fender Squire Strat that I have since given to a friend that came upon hard times and was guitarless.

I've found the same thing. Often, my creative outlets have been such that it takes weeks for me to get to a place where I feel like the vision in my head has been somewhat realized, but I'm finding using Band-in-a-Box really speeds up that process, and it feels more satisfying earlier. Maybe you feel the same way. I can tell a lot of time was put into this song, though.

That's a truly noble act! The world could use more selfless actions like this, especially when it comes to sharing tools for expression and creation. One of my favourite bands, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, (weird name, I know) won a big music prize here in Canada a few years ago, and donated all of their winnings to a program that gives musical instruments to prisons and rehab facilities. It really impressed me, and I appreciate your kind act too. Everyone should have access to music, it's such a basic human thing.

Nice work, especially the guitars. Sounded like it could be a prelude to Ry Cooder's Mexican Divorce.

Thanks Tune Monger. LOL, I thought of Ry when I started creating this tune.

Thanks Peter!I am glad you enjoyed it.

While the tunes and their arrangements are important to me, I always strive to make my guitar work the jewel in the crown of my songs.

Nicely done - very uplifting and easy to follow, and gentle on the ears. I can imagine it sounding unreal live.

Thanks for sharing smile

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."
