It's been a little while since my last song post.

Most of my songs are inspired by events around me.

We all know what events surround us theses days.

I felt compelled to create something that speaks to the current events.

Unfortunately, I'm a complete novice at BIAB so, my skill level was not sufficient to use it to create this song.
Someday I hope to reach a higher level of BIAB skills.

For now, It's all me, guitar, synth guitar and vocals.

Here's a simple song called: "Sacrifice "

Hi Captain
Well done. I also get a bit of a Doors vibe (as happens with a few of your songs). Unspeakable what's happening in Ukraine (and Syria). If only music really could change the world.
Regards,
Leon

This is a real song about a real war in a real place with real people who are treated no differently than any other barbarian would treat people.

The music fits the song, the song fits the times.

Every time I look over at my rifle I also wonder how much longer can I just watch.

I have tried three or four times to write a song about all this but all that comes out is anger and tears.
Thanks, moto.

Billy

Definitely hearing the doors vibe as others have mentioned, and that's ok in my book.

This is just a very real song about a very real and terrifying situation, and it's very well done.

Nice!

What a good song about a very bad situation. So well done, Moto. The steady beat indicates the marching madness of war.


Enjoy whatever happens!

"Masters of War" , strange that you mention that.
I recently did a cover of that but rules prevent me posting it here.

I wasn't shooting for a "Doors" vibe, but, I'll humbly accept the compliment.

Captain,
Very good and creative write. I am grateful to all folks that are not ignoring this tragedy and speaking out. Thank you!

Misha.

P.S. I shared your soundcloud link with my Ukrainian friends.

What a shame we have such madness in the world.
A little song aint doing much to help but, at least it brings a little more attention to the cruel reality of this invasion.

moto,

Powerful!

The tracks/instrumentation set the mood perfectly. And the vocal puts it over the top.

REALLY well done.

WOW what a dynamic song.

Unfortunately it is so true in the Ukraine.

Many there are making the ultimate sacrifice

Finally yes it does sound like something Jim Morrison would write.

Loved it.


Me, it's not about how many times you fail, it's about how many times you get back up.
Cop, that's not how field sobriety tests work.

Thanks FJ,
When the master speaks I pay attention!
Greatly appreciate your kind comments.

I've been struggling with what I would do to speak to this subject.
I settled on this simple arrangement.

This hits the mark dead-on. You captured the dreariness of the situation perfectly. I liked that cello or whatever it was. It add real atmosphere. I don't know if you know how to make the guitar wail but if you do, you should lay down some wailing guitar at the end. If you can't, get one of the great players on this forum to do it. It would really elevate this thing a couple of notches.

Top notch work.

Thanks for the comments.
I hear what you're saying, I could have added a few more elements but, I was trying to keep it simple with focus on the subject rather than the music.

Maybe I'll do some wailing on a future song. wink

Really really cool Moto. Loved the groove of the song. I got a bit of a Doors vibe. Really well done..

The Band-in-a-Box® Flash Drive Backup Option

Today (April 5) is National Flash Drive Day!

Did you know... not only can you download your Band-in-a-Box® Pro, MegaPAK, or PlusPAK purchase - you can also choose to add a flash drive backup copy with the installation files for only $15? It even comes with a Band-in-a-Box® keychain!

For the larger Band-in-a-Box® packages (UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, Audiophile Edition), the hard drive backup copy is available for only $25. This will include a preinstalled and ready to use program, along with your installation files.

Backup copies are offered during the checkout process on our website.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first? If your flash drive (or other USB plug) doesn't have a symbol to indicate which way is up, look for the side with a seam on the metal connector (it only has a line across one side) - that's the side that either faces down or to the left, depending on your port placement.

Band-in-a-Box® 2024 Review: 4.75 out of 5 Stars!

If you're looking for a in-depth review of the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows version, you'll definitely find it with Sound-Guy's latest review, Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows Review: Incredible new capabilities to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs.

A few excerpts:
"The Tracks view is possibly the single most powerful addition in 2024 and opens up a new way to edit and generate accompaniments. Combined with the new MultiPicker Library Window, it makes BIAB nearly perfect as an 'intelligent' composer/arranger program."

"MIDI SuperTracks partial generation showing six variations – each time the section is generated it can be instantly auditioned, re-generated or backed out to a previous generation – and you can do this with any track type. This is MAJOR! This takes musical experimentation and honing an arrangement to a new level, and faster than ever."

"Band in a Box continues to be an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs, as well as an extensive educational resource. It is huge, with hundreds of functions, more than any one person is likely to ever use. Yet, so is any DAW that I have used. BIAB can do some things that no DAW does, and this year BIAB has more DAW-like functions than ever."
