A friend sent me this link last night, and I thought some of you might enjoy it.

Pick a decade (1900-now) and mood (fast, slow, and weird), and click on a country on the world map, and it starts playing music from that time and place. I got stuck on here for a while, did my dishes to the 70s "weird" selections from India.

Might be a good research tool. I love to listen to Brazilian music of the late 50s, early 60s.

Me too!

Apparently Chinese and middle eastern music from the 60s and 70s is a lot cooler than I'd thought as well.

I'm definitely going to listen to this when I get home.

This reminds me a bit vaguely of It lets you put in your genre you're looking for, energy level, happiness level, and dance-ability level and matches you up with songs that meet your requirements. It's kind of nifty. I think yours is definitely the cooler find, though. Searching music by decades and country -- that's definitely something I'm going to have to dive in to later. That sort of thing always fascinated me.

Edit:: looks like moodfuse is down for maintenance/having some issues right now, though. Sad!

Moodfuse told me "invalid access token".

Well - there goes an hour of my night after work. Seriously - just spent 2 minutes there out of curiosity and I can see this becoming addictive. Great find!

When you order directly from us, there's an option to have your Band-in-a-Box® Pro, MegaPAK, or PlusPAK installation files sent to you on a flash drive (instead of DVD).
(this option appears during the check-out process)

We've created this handy tutorial video to walk you through the installation process:

Check out EricBlackmonGuitar's latest video, QUIK LICKS #14 Guitar Riffs Solo Lesson EricBlackmonGuitar HQ, where he not only teached a great guitar riff, but he also repeats that lick over a Band-in-a-Box backing track... what a great way to show how Band-in-a-Box is ideal for backing tracks!

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 - Cleaned-up BB folder!

It's the first day of spring today, which means it's time to start spring cleaning!

We cleaned up the BB folder with our release of Band-in-a-Box® 2018. Over the years, this folder has been growing - there were up to 10,000 files in there! We've fixed this and put the files into various folders. This is done with a cleanup routine. The cleanup normally happens automatically during installation, but you can run it manually by selecting the main menu Help | Utilities | Run Cleanup routine.

The cleanup routine does the following:
-Moves Styles files (.STY/.STX) from C:\bb to C:\bb\Styles.
-Moves Soloists files (.ST2/.XT2) from C:\bb to C:\bb\Soloists.
-Moves various Demo folders to C:\Demos.
-Moves various songs and lessons folders to C:\bb\Songs and Lessons.
-Moves various files essential for running Band-in-a-Box to C:\bb\Data and C:\bb\Data\Lib.
-Moves various preferences files to C:\bb\Preferences.
-Moves tutorial demo songs, program manuals (.pdf), and the help file (.chm) to C:\bb\Documentation.

Oliver Gannon Interview - Appointed to the Order of Canada!
