Oh MAN! Now I feel like an idiot!

I figured it was an anagram, but I stopped looking for one when I couldn't come up with something. And once I knew your real name it didn't occur to me to re-evaluate the letters as an anagram in light of that info. Very clever!

Interestingly, I just got back from reading the 7 stages of Alzheimers at ALZ.ORG. I meet all the symptoms for stage 3 and some of 4. I should probably be scared, but I think one of the advantages of being stupid is that you don't always know when it's appropriate to be scared. So I'm just gonna be happy and test that old saying about ignorance and bliss

Digging your tune, nice composition, good production.

Horns... very impressive. If you don't mind me asking...

How do you do the horns?

Notation software?

What did you use as your source of sounds?

Pat - just remember this. The time to start worrying is not when you frequently can't remember where your glasses are. Or, if you don't wear glasses, perhaps you find that you occasionally sleep in your clothes.

The time to start worrying is when you forget that you wear glasses ... or clothes.

Until then, stay cool. Incidentally, what's your advice on a new stage name: Neal Drack? I don't know ... it suggests Dracula, who I always thought was a pretty cool dude.

Thanks RHarv. I think this is first time I've heard from you in the User forum. There are a few guys who are heavyweight contributors. I've been a member only since the beginning of the year and have already found out about you, Mac and Matt Finley. But I never see them post any performances. I've heard you guys are all powerhouse musicians, so ... ?

In my case, don't believe everything you hear smirk

I have plenty of songs posted on the forum, dating back many years.
Go here -
http://www.pgmusic.com/user-showcase/?genre=jazz
CTRL+F and search for rharv on the Rock, Jazz or Realtracks tabs.

I ain't saying they are my best work, but it ain't hard to find. Neither is the work of others you mention.

Mac & Matt have earned my respect, FWIW. I am not in Mac or Matt's class as far as performance. Doesn't matter which weapon; piano, trumpet, guitar .. I'd be gettin' schooled.

If you ever write about a tattoo that got infected:
Decal Rank

If you write a song about the undercover police who infiltrate brothels to catch pushers
Laced Nark

Who would write a tongue in cheek techno song?
Dance Lark

a song about a tall welder?

a song about a kid with venereal disease:
Canker Lad

a song about a country where nothing ever gets oiled:

Announcing…The Birth of a Song (w/Floyd Jane)

We are excited to announce the release of a new project: The Birth of a Song (w/Floyd Jane)

Songwriter Floyd Jane shows the songwriting process from inspiration to performance and publication: http://www.pgmusic.com/?vid=IYMMZVvQdCw

The idea for this project came about when many members on this forum and elsewhere were asking questions about the song writing process. There are many aspects, and many parts of it necessary to create a song, get it arranged, performed, and then published on the internet. So we asked the great songwriter Floyd Jane, who is a regular member on this forum, if he could help. Floyd agreed and was even able to collaborate with other forum members, Janice and Bud. The result is this video we put together that you can see on YouTube or Facebook, called "The Birth of a Song (w/Floyd Jane)".

We hope this video helps other songwriters with their songwriting process, and also shows them tools that are available to them along the way. Also, we mention this User Showcase Forum, and hope to see many new aspiring or accomplished songwriters join this community :blush:

A big Thank You to Floyd for sharing your knowledge with the community and making this possible. And to Janice and Bud for your great collaboration!

Here is Floyd's original forum post for his song "A Little Bit Of Me": http://www.pgmusic.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=433190

Check out Floyd / Janice & Bud’s music here:

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Windows - 49 Requests Fulfilled!

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Windows boasts more than 50 new features... and a lot of the new features fill the requests posted by program users!

Some of these include:

Q. I am learning guitar. The RealTracks are very helpful in that I can hear great guitar players, and most of the tracks have tab and notation as well. But there is much more to guitar, could you include some videos of some of the RealTracks Artists? Because I would learn much more from seeing a guitarist than just hearing them.

A. We have a major new feature called "Video RealTracks." These work and sound like RealTracks, but you get to see a video of the Guitarist (or whatever instrument) playing as well. The amazing thing is that this works with any chord progression you type in. So, if you want to learn to play like the great guitarist Brent Mason, for example, you can type in chords to any progression you are interested in, and then hear and see a video of Brent soloing over your progression. Now you can learn much quicker, as it helps to see how a musician is performing, as well as to hear.

Q. I love the Audio Chord Wizard, as it figures out chords from mp3 and other audio files. But it is a separate program from Band-in-a-Box, and I can’t go back and forth to change things easily.

A. We've solved that, as BiaB 2018 has integrated the Audio Chord Wizard directly into Band-in-a-Box. Now load an audio file into BiaB, open the Audio Edit Window – Audio Chord Wizard mode, and let it automatically figure out the bar lines and chords for the song.

Q. I like to save songs as MP3 files, and can't do this with BiaB, except a very low quality one, 64kbps.

A. We've improved this, by adding support for Windows Media Foundation. This allows you to save MP3 in your choice of resolutions, up to very high 320mpbs. Better still, it works on current versions of Windows (Windows 7,8,10) and also on older versions too (Vista, XP).

We've answered 49 questions - review all of these answers on our forum post "49 of your Problems solved? List of 49 Requests fulfilled in Band-in-a-Box 2018" here.

All of the new features in Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Windows can be reviewed at http://www.pgmusic.com/bbwin.new.htm

RealBand 2018 users can update their version with the latest patch, Build 3. Download this patch here

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 Build 505 Update Available!

Fixed: The Transcribe feature in the Audio Edit window was not always working.
Fixed: The Windows Audio Devices dialog might show garbage text for names of devices if not running Band-in-a-Box in English.
Fixed: There was no Quality selector in the Render to Audio File dialog if rendering MP3 on Windows 7 or earlier.
Fixed: There were visual artifacts in the leadsheet & notation windows when moving the cursor.
Fixed: Using the Transpose or stretching features in the Audio Edit window might cause an access violation if the audio track is mono.
Improved: Band-in-a-Box will start up faster.
Improved: Importing ABC Notation files has been improved.
Updated: Help file and manuals.
Updated: RealTracks Artist bio's.
