April 17, 2018  -  User Showcase Song - While You Were Sleeping

One night I was up at 3 a.m. and my wife opened the door to my studio and came in and said "What are you doing in here?" and I turned around and said "Band in a Box."

She turned around and as she was walking away she said:

"I should have known."

Ha ha ha! Anybody else been here?!? Thus, this little ditty was born.

This may only be for guitar freaks, I don't know, but it highlights a feature of Band in a Box I love.

On this, I played the original guitar part first, to a click track, and then I went and put the other instruments in later. I messed with the guitar later, but I recorded it in reverse order--the instruments are following the guitar as opposed to having the guitar follow the bed, if that makes any sense. The idea was just to go totally free form on the guitar and then build the music to fill in around it. This challenges the notion that BIAB keeps you in the "box." In this case BIAB becomes the virtual equivalent of a real band playing behind the soloist, instead of having the soloist jam with Band in a Box.
