I'm so glad to be back on here posting with you! It's been too long. This is a song I wrote back in 2008 to help make myself feel better when I was going through lots of heavy stress. It's called MERCY (God Is Good).
I shortened it from it's original epic length, added a few tweaks to the original tracks, of course added some new tracks plus added a special guest - my husband. I Hope it lifts your spirit during this stressful time.
As always thank you for your time listening and any constructive thoughts.
The lead Vox track is the original one from 2008 recorded in RB. Instruments are all Realtracks/RDs and a BIAB midi track. I don't remember and cannot find the original style. Mixed in Reaper.
Loc: Washington State
After listening to Mercy (God is Good), I realized with a sense of pleasant surprise that I had forgotten what a fine singer you are . Your vocal intro was sung in as gentle a manner as a mother would sing to her new-born infant, but at the same time, it also sounded like a quiet, two-note wake-up call to the masses to come to you, to listen to you, and heed your reassuring message. And then, those drums! POW! They really put the song 'on wheels' and sent it on its jam-tastic, upbeat way.
But, most of all, I'm very impressed with the song's arrangement! Lots of instruments: sax, strings, a choir, your voice and its harmonization, changes in the drums' rhythms, bass, piano, acoustic guitar, all really smoothly blended in an imgainative way, musically and mix-wise.
Your husband has a commanding, yet warm voice that was perfect for the monologue he provided -- wouldn't be surprised if he was a minister !!!

Hey! It's great that you posted this. Really nice song. Loving the vocals. Especially the held out ones.
When you said a special guest, you husband, I was expecting singing. I caught me off guard; but worked really well!
Now, keep 'em comin'! Good stuff!
C.Aaron Madison I often get asked how to pronounce my name. "Ma-Duh-Sn" J/K As people have left the "." out so many times, "Caaron" has become the norm of it. Still said as the "." was there though.

You may have noticed when you were installing Band-in-a-Box® for Windows that you were asked if you would like to Associate Band-in-a-Box songs and styles with Band-in-a-Box? But, what does that mean?
It's actually pretty simple - basically, if you select this option while you're installing the program, files with the extensions .SGU, .MGU, and other Band-in-a-Box files will open directly in the program if you select them from outside the program.
Missed this option during your setup, but you'd like to apply it now? Go to File | File Utilities | Associate File types with Explorer within the program.
Head to the Practice Window in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows, and you'll see fun games that are fun ear training options for kids: Music Replay & Pitch Invasion.
Of course, you don't have to be a kid to like these games, I think there a fun way to learn at any age!
Music Replay is just what it sounds like - the program plays a 1-bar melody, and the user plays it back. Get it right, and you'll keep building that melody (and skill) within the game - get it wrong, and you'll be met with a warning tone and have to try again... it's quite addictive, and a lot of fun!
If you like a classic arcade game, then you'll love Pitch Invasion! We've managed to incorporate aliens with pitch-recognition skills in this exciting game, where you'll match the pitch of the alien ship descending towards your planet trying to destroy your collection of instruments - match the pitch and you've saved your instruments, make a mistake and the ship keeps coming... you'll have a few tries to get it right, if you're quick, but if all your instruments are destroyed - it's game over! The game speeds up as your skills improve, and you'll earn points along the way, with bonus points available throughout the game.
Open up your Band-in-a-Box® for Windows today to give it a try!
