Styles Set #07: Country & Pop

Styles for Band-in-a-Box
Introduction and Overview
Here is Styles Set #07 with 25 great Country & Pop styles for Band-in-a-Box.

These are the standard styles files included with the MegaPak version of Band-in-a-Box. They can
also be purchased separately.

Styles Set #7 - We've made an entire Styles Set devoted to Country and Pop. Six new pop styles including
a "PHIL_C" ballad, a "MANLOW" pop ballad with strings in the "B" section, a Beach Boys style and a
Techno-Disco style. There are also nineteen new country styles including Line Dances, "Achy Shaky",
Eagles, Square Dance (check out the fiddle), Texas Swing, Travis, "Jethro" Bluegrass and many more! 25
Styles in all!

Note: You must have Band-in-a-Box Version 7.0 (or higher) in order for these styles to work properly.

Remember, its easy to make your own styles for Band-in-a-Box as any style can be modified,
altered and saved with the StyleMaker. If youre interested in editing or tweaking Styles or even making
them from scratch, be sure to check out the Secrets of the StyleMaker Audio-Visual CD.

One of the easiest ways to explore the new styles is from the select style window (press the
STY button). If you scroll to near the end of the categories list on the left, you can select the Chicago
Blues 33 category, then highlight the individual styles and press the Load song demo button. Its a good
idea to un-check the Auto-change Melody instrument so that youll hear the correct demo melody
instrument. You can also sort the styles by Styles Set number if you like. More detailed information about
each style is available by pressing the Memo button of the Demo tune. The Demo tunes for these styles
follow the same naming convention as the styles themselves. For example, a DEMO song for
ZZWaltz.STY would be ZZWALTZ.MGU

By all means visit the PG Music home page on the Web at There are lots
of interesting downloads, demos, magazine and customer reviews, including streaming audio-visual
program tutorials and radio interviews and more. Review your favorite products or stop by the Styles
wish-list page, where you can request specific styles or leave feedback and suggestions - thats how we
stay in touch with you. So drop in and check it out.

We hope you enjoy these various styles.

Have fun.
