July 25, 2016 BIAB Does It Again!!

I told Dr. Gannon that I thought the style; "Crooner" was the BEST music tech innovation I'd ever heard. Well, with the Django guitar solo added for this Satchmo classic, I believe my comment is really (shall we say) amplified. ENJOY, and thanks BIAB for the most innovating software in the world!

July 19, 2016 User Showcase Song - Sanctuary

A while back I saw someone close, slowly come back from the brink, and found Sanctuary. So I sat down and wrote this song. It was early days with BIAB so a bit of a struggle, but it’s what I felt I needed to articulate and maybe there was a little “guidance” there.

July 11, 2016 User Showcase Song - 50 Shades of Stray

This is my latest goofy song and the animation that makes it even goofier.

It's based on all the online dating horror stories I've heard from friends through the years... stories from guys who ended up with a very negative view of dating and women in general.. so the negative comments are not a reflection of my own attitudes, they're just an exaggerated version of the worst-case scenario.

There's a lot of humorous details in the text and sets, and it may take more than one time thru to catch everything.

Style is _CTRNRGS.STY (Chicken Pickin' Country w/ Guita)

With a little advice from Rob ( RnAM) I started to use the Bar settings function in BIAB and so this was a early attempt with the trumpet. Took me 2 days to write the music 1 day to finish the lyrics, but 4 days to do the bar settings, it just does not come easy for me, Still I will chip away, Rome ,,,,,,,,,etc
