My hand has now recovered very well but I still can't come up with any new music of my own. SO - Whilst my own musical block continues, here is a pretty little guitar waltz written by my friend Ernie Lamprell, to tide me over, and used with his permission.

No Soloist track.

Song is saved with bar changes for Volume Changes,
Style is LULABY34.STY (Lulaby, Slow waltz)

Hi Nobilis - thank you for listening and your kind comment. Serene indeed!
Hi Floyd - glad you enjoyed it. Quite different to USA style pickin'.Very "scaley" in concept, it made it easy to put harmonies to it. Sad! -Duffys closed until the 25th! We'll starve!! Taking loads of sunscreen, my friend - NoAd 30.
Hi Dani, I can just see you smooch dancing with your new girlfriend to this! lol!
Hi Josie - thank you for being so kind. I'm not on these boards much these days for all sorts of reasons and I probably have missed lots of your lovely music and songs.
Hi Charlie - thank you for taking the time to listen.
cheers
ian

Beautiful tone on this one Ian. Love it.

As for the Island, try the Rod and Reel Pier Restaurant at the North end of the island.

875 N Shore Dr
Anna Maria, FL

http://www.urbanspoon.com/r/30/1281006/restaurant/Tampa-Bay/Rod-Reel-Pier-Anna-Maria


If you fish, get some large live shrimp and try for snook. They are huge down there, and the season is open now.


Regards,

Bob

Hi Bob - glad you liked the sound.
Will try Rod n Reel Pier for sure. Last time (Sept/Oct 2012) we snacked at the City Pier. I believe it has undergone some work on the ouerhgead since. Don't fish but like to eat it. Lol!
Hi Guenter - thank you for your kind feedback. The tune has a sort of Music Box feel into it.
Cheers
Ian

The Rod and Reel is our favorite breakfast place.

"eat here" is an interesting place for dinner.

The Waterfront restaurant is excellent - nice selection of brews, there, too...

This is just beautiful!

Excellent lead and harmonies, anything more complicated would have ruined the mood IMHO. Very nice guitar tone also.

Outstanding! Lead, harmony, choice of RT's and the mix. A cool showcase of what a talented musician can do with RT support. Enjoyed it.

Hi Floyd
Great info. Did you know Rod & Reel Pier has a streaming live webcam on it? We tune in most days. We followed the rebuilding of the Pierhead building (where the Restaurant is) over the Winter and be sure we'll do breakfast there.
Hi Mario,thanks for the kind feedback. Its pretty much the KISS principle here - more would have got in the way, I think.
Hi Janice and Bud - The base mid style was just right and all it needed was the two RTs to give it that Musical Box feel and a change to the Hi-Q midi guitar as the one in the Style was a bit clunky sounding. Glad you enjoyed it friends.
cheers
ian

#TechTipTuesday - Band-in-a-Box® Patch Updates

If you're ever experiencing an issue with your Band-in-a-Box program, make sure you have the most recent patch update for your version - this can be done at http://www.pgmusic.com/support.updates.win.htm.

Patch updates are released frequently, and are created by our development team to fix any reported bugs, tweak existing features within the program, update demos and other files as needed, and more!

To find out which version of the program you have, visit Help | About Band-in-a-Box within the program. You will see the full version number listing as:
Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2018 (512)

The number in parentheses is the build number. As you can see, my Band-in-a-Box is up to date and will continue to stay that way because I've selected "Automatically check for updates every 7 days" within the Help | Check for Updates.... option (you can set the number of days to a different number). This window will also look to see if you're version is up to date, so you don't technically have to visit http://www.pgmusic.com/support.updates.win.htm if you didn't want to!

Once you've installed your patch update (make sure the program is closed when you're doing this), give it another try - if you are still experiencing the same issue you can report it by contacting us directly, or you can post your result to the Forum thread that also announces the patch update, like our recent Band-in-a-Box 2018 Build 512 Update (Feb 15) post.

PowerTracks Pro Audio 2018 is Here!

PowerTracks Pro Audio 2018 is here! PowerTracks Pro Audio 2018 includes many new features and enhancements:

Windows Audio (WASAPI) driver support. This allows for low latency audio recording/playback without requiring ASIO. Note that this supports 1 stereo input plus 1 stereo output at a time. For multiple inputs/outputs, you should continue to use either MME or ASIO.

ABC Notation format support. You can save a track of notation in a popular ASCII text format to import into other programs, or you can paste this format into a user forum as a way of sending the track (usually the melody and chord symbols) to other users without having to attach a file.

The built-in Audio Chord Wizard detection in the Chords window automatically detects the chords of the song, based on the audio data from all non-muted audio tracks. This works similar to the standalone Audio Chord Wizard, except that it uses the current bar lines of the existing song.

Notation Enhancements:
-X/8 time signature support. This is a special method of displaying 6/8, 9/8, or 12/8 time signatures in the Notation window.
-The Duplicate previous chord in notation right-click menu lets you quickly duplicate the previous chord (group of notes on same peg) without having to reenter it.
-Delete highlighted notes in notation right-click menu lets you delete all highlighted notes.
-Delete all notes on this peg in notation right-click menu lets you delete all notes on the nearest peg that was clicked on.
-You can now enter Section Numbers. Previously, you could enter letters (A-Z) only, but now you can also enter numbers (1-9).

...a full list of the new features in PowerTracks Pro Audio 2018 is available at http://www.pgmusic.com/powertracks.features.htm
