New Album—Acoustic Guitar Serenades

For this new album, I explored all of the ways to create some really nice acoustic guitar ambient music using the new styles and a few older ones. There is quite a mélange. There are also several ways to listen, but I will give a note on songs first.

On the Soundcloud “Album Channel” I have posted three representative songs up top, Picnic in July, Hidden Buddha, and Swamp Magic.

Swamp Magic is just a song I played solo on acoustic—it was written when I was 12 years old on the same old Yamaha Floyd and I share as one of our first guitars. It took me an entire summer working in the fields to pay for it. (You will see it on the album cover.)

I got a chance to pick a little for Chet Atkins and even jam with him for a while when I met him because he was my hero.

Other ways to listen include going to the new You Tube commercial channel. If you listen there and/or subscribe, I get credit. smile

Outstanding! Really great stuff...

Very cool picture - what year is that? Late 70's?

Love the picture of you and Chet, how cool is that?!

I went to that youtube channel but there is no content there as far as I could tell?

Listening over on soundcloud now, very nice!

I am with Dave on this one. Imagine to have met and played with Chet Atkins. What a super life event. There was a young man from Winnipeg that Chet Alkins took under his wing way back when. His name was Lenny Breau. You have a masterful touch with guitar David. These songs are so nice to listen to well done...

Nice work David, just listened to Picnic In July and I love the vibe of it! Nice, straight-forward, mellow guitar work that is calming. Getting a pleasant summery vibe off this!

Can't wait to check out the rest of them smile

I really like the two classical style pieces in this collection. "Claire" is pretty, soft and tender. "Old Lovers Reunited" has a wonderful nostalgic feel to it. These two made and excellent start to my day. Thank you!

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.
