I guess she came home and caught you at it, cos all I get from the link is "Whoa, something went wrong and it wasn't supposed to happen."

Tommy,

Mix sounds good to me, pickin' is great!
Like the piano accompaniment, also the uptempo, then settling back down a bit.

Dark dusky corner of old bar, having another drink for old times.

Thanks for sharing.

Really, seriously! Tommy, that was some sick playing. The tone, the melodic phrasing. I could listen to that all day long!

Thanks Tommy for share your blues soul with us. We need it...
I'm wrong thinking you play a Fender guitar in Fender amp? Great sound ;-)

Rafa I play a Fender Strat, this time I used a Processor on a Fender Amp setting. I usually use my 1965 Vox amp, but it has so much noise it's hard to do a clean sound on. Thank you for listening!

Real nice, Cuz! You need a faster computer if it takes 11 minutes to convert a 3 minute song to mp3!

Enjoyed this one!

#TBT Band-in-a-Box® Version 11 for Mac!

Band-in-a-Box® Version 11 for Mac was released in the Fall of 2002! Some of the new features added at that time included:

MIDI File Chord Interpretation Wizard
Open up any MIDI file in Band-in-a-Box®, and Band-in-a-Box® will automatically figure out the chords of the song for you. It automatically analyzes the MIDI file, figures out where the Bass, Piano, Melody, and other tracks are, and then figures out the chord changes for the song. The chords are written to the Band-in-a-Box® chordsheet like any other song.

Guitar Styles
These are styles that show strummed and picked guitar parts accurately on the guitar fretboard (and they sound great). These styles also play accurate guitar voicings, in your choice of Pop, Jazz, Country or Folk guitar chording. There's even a “walking guitar comping” style that plays guitar that emulates the famous “Basie Big Band” Jazz style. The Guitar Styles play like any regular style, and when you view them on the virtual guitar fretboard you can see exactly which strings and frets are used – so it is a great learning tool as well.

Guitar Tutor
Analyze any song! This feature will show the chords that are playing on the virtual guitar fretboard, in your choice of a Jazz, Pop, or Folk perspective. The Guitar Tutor is a fun way to learn about new guitar chords while playing along with your favorite Band-in-a-Box® tune.

...and more! For a complete list of the features added with Band-in-a-Box® Version, visit http://www.pgmusic.com/pdfs/bbmac_version_11.pdf

#TBT - Band-in-a-Box® 2006 for Windows Ear Training Fun!

With the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2006 for Windows we added two great games for ear training: Pitch Invasion and Music Replay!

Pitch Invasion helps to develop perfect pitch as you shoot down "alien" notes invading from above (you hear the note sound, and click on the on-screen piano/MIDI or QWERTY keyboard to shoot them down).

Music Replay develops your pitch, rhythm, and melody recognition by replaying what the program plays, in note, rhythm, or melodic modes.

These games can still be accessed with newer versions of the program - in Band-in-a-Box® 2018 you'll find these by accessing the Practice Window or Ear Training Window, both located in the Window drop-down menu. The Practice Window can also be accessed using the Practice button within the main Band-in-a-Box screen (don't see it? CTRL+T to change the view).

Learn all about the features released with Version 2006 here.

Video: Exporting Audio Files in Band-in-a-Box® 2018

Our latest video, Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Windows - Exporting Audio Files Tutorial walks you through the different options to export your Band-in-a-Box® songs and song tracks from Band-in-a-Box® as an audio file (WAV, MP3, etc.)!
