I'd sure appreciate more slide guitar options. I wanted to create a slide guitar solo and had just TWO options.

Hey Eddie,

I'm all for more options, but just out of curiosity, did you try using either or both of those options and find the results unsatisfactory for any reason?

Yes I tried them. And I can't really say WHAT made them sound less than desirable because of the subjective nature of what is good or bad, but I just didn't like them. Too simple, too bland, etc. Choose your adjective. And I generated 10 different snippets trying to find something I could cobble together into a 16 bar solo and had nothing decent to work with.

I am aware that they can't approach Duane Allman to do samples, but with only 2 options I had to wonder. Between the county and blues guys who use this software, that's a wide market.

Eddie,

I saw a music wanted placement for a slide guitar piece on SongTradr and I just asked myself, what would Duane do?

So I triple stacked a Real Track Drum Track, plugged my tele into a twin, put a glass slide on my finger, turned it up to 10 and just tore it up.

Isn't that what you're doing?

Mine sounded pretty danged good and I don't see nothing wrong with it except it burns your face off. How are you trying to do it?

Duane and me are confused.

Well, David, I tried to play response parts with Real Tracks, but the options were horrible. I am getting to where I can barely play guitar anymore because of arthritis in my left middle and ring fingers so I am relying on tracks more and more. I hate getting old.

I do have to say that back when I played, every lick I knew on slide came from Duane. I often had them Statesboro Blues.

Eddie,

I hear ya man.

Some days I feel like I've been tied to the whipping post.

Just tied to the whipping post.

Good lord, Eddie, it feels like I'm dying.

Hey, could that be a song????

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.
