Thanks

Check out iRealPro. The app costs about $12.00 and you can download thousands of tunes, holiday tunes as well (chords only), from their forum.

Very nice Joanne. I'm working on a few traditional Christmas tunes as well. Hopefully I'll have them done soon.

Thanks Samuel. Yes Christmas public domain songs are so nice to cover. It becomes a bit of a challenge to try and achieve a different spin on them because they have been done so many times before!

Recorded to PC on December 4th, 1999 with the band I was in, almost 18 years to the day.

I was the keys player and did the piano and jingle bells sound effect.

I had just been going though some "Blues for Piano" books shortly before this recording and had just learned the blues riffs in C Major.

So we as a band winged it and recorded this in very few takes.

I submitted my own take of an apparently local-exclusive carol, named it Cracking Carol (it's on my Youtube channel as well), if you can find it.

BobH and I took a song that we did in 2009 and remixed it. I forgot what BiaB style we used and I have lost the lyrics. I do know that we kept the drums from that style but deleted everything else.

BobH is playing the 12 string and singing and I am playing everything else.

We hope you like it for what it is.

Ps - I know that I haven't been listening or posting much lately. Life has gotten in the way of my music.

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Windows - 49 Requests Fulfilled!

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Windows boasts more than 50 new features... and a lot of the new features fill the requests posted by program users!

Some of these include:

Q. I am learning guitar. The RealTracks are very helpful in that I can hear great guitar players, and most of the tracks have tab and notation as well. But there is much more to guitar, could you include some videos of some of the RealTracks Artists? Because I would learn much more from seeing a guitarist than just hearing them.

A. We have a major new feature called "Video RealTracks." These work and sound like RealTracks, but you get to see a video of the Guitarist (or whatever instrument) playing as well. The amazing thing is that this works with any chord progression you type in. So, if you want to learn to play like the great guitarist Brent Mason, for example, you can type in chords to any progression you are interested in, and then hear and see a video of Brent soloing over your progression. Now you can learn much quicker, as it helps to see how a musician is performing, as well as to hear.

Q. I love the Audio Chord Wizard, as it figures out chords from mp3 and other audio files. But it is a separate program from Band-in-a-Box, and I can’t go back and forth to change things easily.

A. We've solved that, as BiaB 2018 has integrated the Audio Chord Wizard directly into Band-in-a-Box. Now load an audio file into BiaB, open the Audio Edit Window – Audio Chord Wizard mode, and let it automatically figure out the bar lines and chords for the song.

Q. I like to save songs as MP3 files, and can't do this with BiaB, except a very low quality one, 64kbps.

A. We've improved this, by adding support for Windows Media Foundation. This allows you to save MP3 in your choice of resolutions, up to very high 320mpbs. Better still, it works on current versions of Windows (Windows 7,8,10) and also on older versions too (Vista, XP).

We've answered 49 questions - review all of these answers on our forum post "49 of your Problems solved? List of 49 Requests fulfilled in Band-in-a-Box 2018" here.

All of the new features in Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Windows can be reviewed at http://www.pgmusic.com/bbwin.new.htm

Fixed: There was no Quality selector in the Render to Audio File dialog if rendering MP3 on Windows 7 or earlier.
Fixed: There were visual artifacts in the leadsheet & notation windows when moving the cursor.
Fixed: Using the Transpose or stretching features in the Audio Edit window might cause an access violation if the audio track is mono.
