Lots to choose from but none I enjoyed more that "I'll Be Me" Glenn Campbell's last tour.

This link is for Netflix, not sure if it will work.

I actually liked many of the ones mentioned and quite a few not.

One of the coolest music documentaries was the series Behind The Music. It was on one of those cable music channels a few years back. Since it was an hour, I would watch the show even if the artist/band was not among my list of favorites.

Being an old Pink Floyd fan, the documentary about Dark Side was particularly interesting. An album way ahead of it's time and an all time classic.

Netflix "The Winding Stream" is about the Carter Family and their influence on Country music. It includes the life of Johnny Cash who married June Carter.

One Trick Pony (grin)..

They tried selling it as a movie, but there were no main actors really.

It did feature quite a bit of Steve Gadd, Eric Gale, Tony Levin, and Richard Tee both playing and 'behind the scenes' touring scenes.

"Still Bill"

The Bill Withers story. It is a delight (as is he).

"It's okay to head out for Wonderful.
But on your way to Wonderful, you're gonna pass through "All Right".
And when you get to All Right, take a good look around and get used to it.
'Cause that may be as far as you're gonna go..."

Last night PBS ran EIGHT DAYS A WEEK directed by Ron Howard. About the Beatles through '66 when they stopped touring. Good one for Beatle fans.

I saw that and other clips asking them why they stopped touring, and to be honest, they made the right call. Going out and playing "She Loves You" had to be really taxing for them because they wanted to do much more complex stuff. And then they finally did, it couldn't be replicated with just the 4 of them (and Billy Preston). Can you imagine the size of the touring group it would have taken to do the Sgt Pepper album from top to bottom? I am SO fortunate to have seen them in concert.

And what they said was true. You couldn't hear anything but screaming.
If you say "I can't" ..... I'm pretty sure you won't.

I really enjoyed “Keep on keeping on” on Netflix. A documentary about 90 plus year old jazz legend Clark Terry who still teaches and encourages students. The film documents the relationship between Clark and young blind pianist Justin Kauflin. Most enjoyable.

Hired Gun is on Netflix right now and it focuses on side-players in rock. Particular focus on Billy Joel’s drummer, Liberty somethingorotuer and on Rudy Sarzo, and various players that Alice Cooper has hired over the years. I’m not really into that music but it was interesting to hear from these folks.

There is also a great documentary on Rush right now on Netflix right now.

That’s it!

He is kind of the only one that they feature that isn’t hard rock. I found the interviews with Rudy Sarzo (bass player for Ozzy Osborne, Whitesnake, others) to be particularly and surprisingly soul-stirring.

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: - 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.
