Really enjoyed the listen (several, actually).

Floyd everything I was thinking as I listened! Energetic & entertaining all the way! Thanks, Torrey

Hendrix, both the sound and the playing. I'm thinking "Hey Joe" or "All Along the watchtower".

Fabulous stuff and definitely one of your best to date.

That put a smile on my face. Thanks a lot.

This is really catchy song right from the intro, Dire Straits of their golden era came immediately into my mind. Great lyrics with a message that fits nicely the start of a new year. And that guitar playing is awesome.

Yet another fine production from a very fine team.

And Peter, you well know how much we love those soaring leads. We can see Clapton bending back and raising a foot smile

This is one you don't need to say a lot about...just listen again and enjoy...

Great collab you two!

Janice & Bud
You are too kind! (but I'm very pleased with the comparisons as you would know).
Thanks

It's all been said and I agree with all of it!

This your best to date IMHO.

You should be very proud of this one!

PS - If you keep playing like that you had better have a fire extinguisher near by because you are going to set that neck on fire! Super chops! Loved it!

Save Notation Window as a Video with Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac

Did you know... Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac allows you to save the Notation Window as a video? What a great way to share your songs with users, and LEARN from the notation as you listen!

From the program manual:
[Save As] | Save as video
-In the Make Notation Video dialog, select a track at the upper left corner. (Note: The dialog title says “Make Chord Sheet Video” until you select a track.)
-You can also set the dimension (width/height) of the video and select the number of frames per second and a specific codec.
-Press the [OK - Render Video] button to start rendering the video. When the video has been created, press the [Show Video File] button.
-You can then double click on the file to watch the rendered video.

Note: A special use of this feature is to combine a Video RealTracks (new with version 2018) with the corresponding notation in a single video. This creates an educational video, which shows the actual performance with notation/tab, playing over your chord progression! To do this, right-click on the Master button or one of the track buttons at the top of the main screen and select Render Video(s) from the menu.
