Great article Jim

(Despite the fact that somebody obviously liked Bob Seeger), I was impressed with the broad mix and the extremely wide date range.

This demonstrated a good spread.

In my view, quite balanced.

Mary Wells and "My Guy":
Actually, in particular I love the story about how the session muso's collaborated on the spur of the moment to use the baseline from Begin The Beguine with Canadian Sunset to create the intro. I don't think Begin The Beguine is mentioned in the article, but I've read it elsewhere several times.

Not a single Jackson 5 or Michael song in the list.
Interesting.

Motown alone could have a decent top 100 list.
To me it was well worth visiting if you get the chance. Apparently Paul McCartney thought so too. After visiting there he spent a ton of money to get the original piano restored and delivered back to the studio. Couldn't stand the thought of all that history decaying.

Wow .. just checked their website and on top of Paul investing $100k in the piano, Ford gave them $6 million to expand.

Nice! It was getting crowded to visit because it was so small. This could be cool.
Though they really need to include the original building. That really portrays the legacy.

Sorry, didn't mean to stray.
There is a lot recording history here in SE Michigan.

It's a good list. Lot of Motown and a lot of Bob Seger ;-) But glad to see some Jack White, MC5 and Iggy rounding it out. I've been living in the greater detroit area for a couple of years and I still haven't been to the motown museum.

I waited 12 years to do it after returning to the area, and it took a friend from Chicago to suggest we go there before I actually did it.

I'd encourage going soon before the expansion takes hold. I have no idea what will change, but being in the original house and seeing the original rooms in person left an impression on me. Maybe it was affected by personal experience (I grew up here while Motown was in its heyday). But they did an amazing amount of production with what they had.
I'm sure I'll go back after the expansion, but I am glad I went while it was all in the original setting.

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.
