A fun country song and video for you all!!

BIAB's fabulous country music tools make it easy. We usually use Real Drums and Real Bass but for country, we use the hard-to-get Steel and Fiddle Real Tracks instead of trying to find studio musicians.

Here's the song link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R4NbXWW06hY

Check out our YouTube channel: SongCrafters Corner for more original songs. Please subscribe and hit the notification bell to listen to new songs when they drop.
Thank You
Duane

Nice story-song, and very pleasant use of the BIAB components. Liked how you handled the ending. Overall production sounded very professional.

For what it’s worth listener feedback...I’d drop out some of the background sound texture during the verse and resume it at the chorus, just as you added the backup vocal harmony.

Nicely done, SongCrafter!! Welcome to the Forum. Gotta go. Someone's asking me Pass The Tequila. Are you using BiaB in all of your songs?

A pleasant listen. An easy Country feel.

Good use of BIAB.

Welcome to the forum and the Showcase.

(There was a short-lived magazine out of Nashville in the early 90's called SongCrafter. Your font/logo look similar. So thanks for the memories!!)

Thanks Babu!

We've been using BIAB since the MIDI days and have been watching and upgrading, since then.

Generally speaking, drum and bass lines are used then other tracks are filled in to completion.

This is a very nice, easy-to-listen-to country song. I tend to agree with Tano about the background fills on the verses. Nonetheless, it didn't take away from the listening pleasure. A really nice song and nicely presented. That was a great listen!

Welcome to the User's Forum! Keep the great music coming ...

Alan

Country music at its finest! Your vocal, backing tracks, and mix are excellent. The lyrics were also very good.

This should be played on every country station.

Thanks you two!!

I never developed a taste for the "new country", so it's tough to write that stuff for me. We've got some more "old country" like from the 80's and 90's that will drop in the next few weeks.

Tobin does a great job of showing just how easy it is to create a song with Band-in-a-Box!

This video was posted on January 23, 2015 to the Keyboard Instrument Chops and Gear YouTube Channel.

Band-in-a-Box® File Associations

Ear Training Games in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows

October 1, 2021 is National Kids Music Day!

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!

These ear training games are also included in Musical Arcade for Windows.
