All I have is a Stratocaster, a few dozen chords, and a copy of BIAB 2020. But I plan to take on the world.

WHAT I BELIEVE
By David Snyder

https://soundcloud.com/david-snyder-gigs3/what-i-believe

V1

Well I believe in harmony
And I believe in Destiny
I believe in living free
And I believe in you and me
I believe in white and black
I love everybody I ain’t takin’ it back
And I believe in sayin’ grace
And being thankful for just having a place
And I believe in red, white and blue
Yeah I believe in me and you
And I believe there’s a God above
I believe it because it’s true
And I believe we should get along
And it all begins with a song
I believe in being honest
And I believe in being strong

CH

Yeah, it’s what I believe
It’s what I believe
It's what I believe


V2

And I believe in telling the truth
And I believe in showing some proof
And I believe there’s hope for everyone
Under each and every roof
But I don’t believe in shame
And calling one another names
And I don’t believe our families deserve
Even one more second of pain

CH

Yeah, it’s what I believe
It’s what I believe
It's what I believe
The world will be good
If our hearts are good
And I will not be deceived
It’s what I believe
Yeah, it’s what I believe

V3

I believe in showing love
And you can never show enough
And I believe in giving the love of God
Whenever things
Get rough
Cause I believe in what I say
Won’t say it any other way
Cause everybody
Will have to answer
On their own
Come Judgment Day

CH

That's a good time. Love the lyrics. And a great job with the recording.

Question. Is this a new version of a song because I seem to recall this song a while ago.

Thanks Herb!

I played the rough draft for you two weeks ago at our NSAI meeting online.

Y'all told me it had too many words and needed an e minor chord, which I gave you.

David.

I believe I like it!

A huge ear-filling sound. The mandolin was a great addition.

As is always the case, the passion in your vocal is unndeniable.

Truth be told. Amen.

This rocks and it's a cool arrangement.
Mandolin certainly gives it a sense of authenticity too.
The bell hits on the cymbal in the chorus are LOUD though.

I believe this is your best to date David!

I liked your chord progression, your passionate vocal, and your mix. What took this over the top were those outstanding lyrics!

Fantastic job on this song!

Hi David,

On your SC site I wrote you have a lot you believe in and I believe it being a good song!
When the song ended another one from you started: Praying for Something. I liked that song too.
Especially the guitar played very nice in it. In 'What I Believe' the guitar is the opposite of this. You nearly mistreated your stratocaster (but needed for this song of course).
In a way the songs are in line, but maybe now you know the name of the one you're praying to and -maybe- believe in?
Nice lyrics...!

Stay safe,
Hans

The three most common "commandments" in the New Testament: Love.
Don't fear. Don't be deceived. Hang in there, as none of those are easy. Powerful stuff. Great ebb and flow in power.

This sounds very much like a new hit from one of the greatest rock stars on Earth, true big rock sound stadion antheme with simple great sing-a-long message. Why is this missing in the top 10 listing then? Maybe this is a hit in a parallel universe, on some other Earth?

David - this is one rockin' song! You really put everything into this - great sound, great energy, excellent lyrics which really delivered. I applaud the way you took your energy and applied it to something positive and uplifting like this song. This one's going to be resonating in my mind for a while!

Hi David
Great sound. Really enjoyed your vocal on this one.
All I have is a stratocaster and a few chords...hmmm...sounds like a song idea in there.
Regards,
Leon

We can't say anything that better illustrates our opinion than the above.

Great performances and RT choice.

Excellent!

PG Music News
RealBand® Works Great in Windows® 11!

Here's an introductory look at RealBand® running on the preview version of Windows® 11!

Watch the video.

Customers LOVE Band-in-a-Box® 2021!

Check out some of the latest Band-in-a-Box® feedback we've received:

"There's a saying 'Give a man a fish, feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, feed him for a lifetime.' That's exactly what my friend did in 1990. He taught me how to use BIAB and I've used it hundreds of time to do arraignment and to jam with any style band."

"Love BIAB. I use it daily. Their support is great too!"

"RealTracks are amazing!!! I use BIAB for backtracks in my solo act... Still using the basic package and it's all need..."

"I have used Band in A Box for many years. If it would have been around when I was young, I would have been a much better musician. I use it for all my songs I have written and recorded. With Band In A Box I can sit in my room and sound like a whole band without having to put up with them!"

"If you know something about music and take the time to learn the program, you can make it do some amazing things. It is a great help to songwriters who want to demo their song without paying for studio time. It makes changes and tweaks much easier as well."

"Been using it for so many years. It's a great tool. The instruments that I don't have or play make up the void and it saves so much time. I use this program for every song I write."

"Great tool for the songwriter!"

"An essential part of my studio! I write songs on piano, but I'm not a pianist by a long way. BIAB is like having a roomful of session players in your studio, and just the simple act of taking your basic idea and hearing a skilled pianist play it presents so many new ideas and options you hadn't thought of."

"Powerful, easy to use, inexpensive and they even split the modest payments up if you want. No complaints. Lots of satisfaction."

"I added a steel guitar to a fully produced original. He followed every change like he was in the studio reading the chart. Fascinating technology!"

"I have used it to make backing tracks for six CD's with about 12 songs on each. They make a great gift!"

"It's simply a necessity - buy it now - the staff and support do a great job as well!"

"A great tool for us songwriters!"

"I LOVE Band-in-a-Box!"

"I see it as a very worthwhile investment. In fact, from initial purchase about 8 years ago, using the backing tracks I have made, my income from that investment has returned over 5,000% on the investment!"

continued...

Do you have something to say about Band-in-a-Box®? Post your own thoughts for Windows or Mac version today!

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."
