Bailey's Blue on SoundCloud
Bailey's Blue on YouTube

This is an original. It's a tune written about and old friend, Bailey. You can read more of the yadda yadda if ya like in the descriptions on SoundCloud and YouTube. Lyrics are there, too

My profile here says I started with BiaB in 2019. Of course, that's when I found this forum. I've been a user since the 20th century, and have progressed right along with the program. At first, it was just for learning stuff. You know, putting in chords and playing along. As the software kept improving the uses became even more evident. I could write out parts for different instruments and get the whole band to play from the same page. It was a way to give others examples of what to play. Now the program has developed to the point of being able to provide us with the tools to make professional sounding finished recordings. And this forum is the highly polished catalyst that brings that all together.

That's not meant to be an advertisement because you folks are all already sold. It's just a way to say thanks to you all for what you are doing on this forum. There is no competition, only honest help. That's refreshing. Thanks.

Here is the Song Summary from BiaB:
Title: Bailey's Blue
File:Bailey's Blue.SGU
Key=G , Tempo 120, Length (m:s)=3:09
5 bar intro, 88 bar chorus, from bar 6 to bar 93. Repeat x1 chorus
No Melody
Soloist track has 365 notes, Soloist harmony is < no harmony >(0)
Song is saved with Volume, Pan, Reverb, Chorus, Bank0,
Song is saved with bar changes for Tempo, Time signature,Volume Changes,
Style is _BLUESSH.STY (Blues Shuffle Quintet Swing)

RealTracks in style: 420:Bass, Electric, Blues Sw 120
RealTracks in style: ~425:Organ, B3, Background Blues Sw 120
RealTracks in style: 421:Guitar, Electric, Rhythm Blues Sw 120
RealTracks in style: ~585:Guitar, Resophonic, Rhythm Blues Muddy Sw 120
RealTracks in song: 418:Guitar, Slide, Soloist Blues Sw 120 (Bluesy)
RealDrums [in style:BluesShuffleHard^1-a:Snare, HiHat , b:Ride

Although those guys did a great job with their parts, it's always more fun to share the recording with friends. Christiane Spruit from Blues Attitude played a rollicking and rocking piano, so I thanked the original pianist for his time, and inserted her interpretation. Dave Bell from Blues Attitude laid down a killer guitar. The solo is outstanding, especially when it goes from the verse to the chorus. Dave also helped a great deal with the mix. I played bass and sang. Oh, one more thing... The ending may have been the first time this happened: G6/Gmaj7. The voices sustain a a G6 four-part harmony while the bass held a Gmaj7 chord. Weird, but in a Miles Davis kinda way I liked it.

BiaB is great, but without you folks, it's just another cool program. A very cool program.

Cooool!

Blues songs seldom tell such an intricate story. Well done!

Good stuff abounds. Good vocals and harmonies.
Chris' piano is solid.
Dave's guitar is its always perfect self. Great BITE to it.
Mix is good. Everybody, every instrument can be heard clearly with a good blend.

Good rockin' rhythm. Very enjoyable listen.

LOVE that last chord!

Outstanding! Love it!

Babu your vocal is fantastic, as is your bass playing. Dave's biting guitar adds a nice edge to this. Your mix is spot on. Love that last chord!

Very cool Marty. Loved the walking bass lines and awesome vocal and harmonies. The guitar player and piano player are not to shabby either :-)... Very cool solo Dave. I listened on Youtube and on Soundcloud which was must better.

Cool!
Everything sounds great.
Well put together.


As a newbie to BIAB I'm blown away by those of you who've mastered it.
I'm pecking away at the edges, maybe someday, I'll see what's inside.

Thanks so much for your comment, Floyd. Chris & Dave are a great addition to any song from the germ to the gem. You're right about blues songs and their short stories, but this one didn't start at a quarter to 3 and end with a matchbox full of clothes. hehe

Thanks, Mario. I knew you'd love Dave's solo. Right? With your talent you could build a whole song with that last chord. Carry on, brother.

Liked it all the way around. Great story-song, with fun, positive energy. Pleasing mix, excellent vocals--and I really liked that final "sliding" chord/organ phrase! Thanks Marty!!

Nice work - loved the story element of it, and thought the solo on it was great too. Has a nice upbeat vibe that is easy to take, and nothing comes across as overbearing. Thanks for sharing smile

Hello BabuMusic...

Bi-i-ig smile on my face. I mean, come on a song about a dog!
This sounds like it could be the theme music for a hit tv show about Bailey's Blue. Really, got to be better than the garbage the networks put out, right?

Great job on the music. Like I said, sounds like a professional tv theme song.

Nice one...another cool BA in blues.
You all do your thing so well AND blend with the BIAB stuff that the tracks are really ensemble sounding.
You'd have carried it off with the three of you + drums n organ but the added textures are great.

Thanks so much, Dero! Dogs are the best, right? I'm going out on a very sturdy limb here and saying, I bet they love you, too. Dogs have the best sense. Anyway, this dawg loves your comment.

Scott, thanks for your kind comments. One of the cool things about playing with Dave is I can't tell (and am not likely to remember) who played on who's track. Sometimes I'll lay down a bass without having his guitar, and sometimes vice versa, yet it often seems we were in the same take.

Hi Marty,

every time I listen to one of your songs I think that I'm really glad you joinded the forum last year. Your Blues stuff is always top notch, and this one is a real treat. Liked the images you used in the YT video a lot, too. And I guess I won't get that chorus out of my head for the rest of the day, because it's so good... But that's okay !!!

And, oh yes: Christine and Dave have done another great job - that was indeed a killer solo !

Take care,

Stefan

We are dog folks ... big time ... so we fell right into this.

Great write and tribute to your friend and his canine buddy.

Man, that bass line is so solid and, hey, it's walking smile -- our fav.

Chris' piano is always in the pocket and Dave ... well, nothing to expect but great chops and tone as per always.

We loved your vocal -- sung with conviction and feeling.

Nice vid and photos -- no surprise there smile

Haha, thanks, Bawb. It's not just another hound dog song, right? And this one is not just a metaphor. hehe. Hey, I got the story line for that TV show. We could make Blue a crack detective, and Bailey is just the side kick.

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...

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."
