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!

Beginners Help - Muting the Melody Notation

Visit our Beginners Forum, and you'll notice our amazing Forum Community helping out new program users!

Like this recent post regarding Muting the Melody Notation: http://www.pgmusic.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=458716 - Forum user Matt Finley did a great job of answering the new program user!

Our Beginners Forum really is a great resource for new program users!

Q: When I have entered chords and notation for a song, is it possible to mute the notation and just have the chords playing? This would be helpful for when I just want the chord backing track but want to read the notation.

A: There are several ways to do this. The easiest is probably to use the Mixer window and change the volume slider to zero for the Melody track. Or, hit the Mute icon on the Mixer for the Melody Track.

Another way, with more control rather than all or nothing, is to press F5 at the measure where you want to mute, and select mute or change the volume to zero. Later, press F5 and select Return to Normal, or change the volume back.

#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.
