Thanks for sharing!

Your song does an excellent job of portraying the mood you intended to provoke. Sweet sound and the Gretsch was a great choice for this one. They have a distinctive sound that can't be imitated by other brands.

Great playing and lots of "feel" in the delivery. A really great track! Best to you,

Alan


Thanks Alan Glad you liked the song

Sweet, Sweet Tune!! Great playing-lots of emotion and great tone. Love the WAH! My best advice for the political stuff is avoid FB/Twitter. The news is bad enough. I try to find some kind of fascination with the current time and not let it drag me down emotionally but it is tough. Nice work here!! Take care. Greg

Scott,

You've really outshone yourself with this composition; and that is saying something because your work is always excellent!

I set the tune playing, closed my eyes and just let you carry me along on a river of audio imagery. I really enjoyed it. The mood your created made me feel reflective and peaceful. It's always really pleasant to hear songs in a mostly minor key. When you coupled that with a 12/8 feel, you had me in the palm of your hand!

Really enjoyed it!

All the best,
Noel

12/8 beat reminds me of "A house of the rising sun" a little bit.
As trevor said, I also thought the WahWah fx was a little unexpected, but added to the 'melancholy' you set out to deliver.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

Shigeki Adachi


Thank you Shigeki for checking out the song. Yes I seem to gravitate towards the 12/8 time signature and minor chords. I really love the sound of the guitar playing through this chords.

Glad to hear you are on Songtradr -- I would think you could have success there given the quality and highly melodic playing of your instrumentals.

We enjoyed the tune -- the wah was special and the mix sounds super.

Thanks Janice and Bud Glad you like the song. Thanks or the kind comments

I thought I had commented on this song several days back, but when I scrolled through, I couldn't find my post. Sorry about that!

This is really nice. One of my favorites of yours. The guitar sounds just perfect for this one. Great job, great feel, great tone, and the wah really adds a nice touch to it.

Steve

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.
