This is a very good example of a well written and well performed song. Excellent job!
I'd like to hear this one recorded live before a live audience.
Absolute keeper!

Hey Ian,

Good to read you again Thanks for the compliments! I don't believe a word of them but, be that as it may, you got me smiling and I'm still smiling. The soloist I used was #383, "Guitar, Slide, Soloist Blues Sw 120". What a great sound.

I totally agree with you about how versatile BIAB is. These days I usually begin a song by loading a style and its demo. I then start playing with the chord progression until I settle on something. Then I just play the song over and over until some words come into my head. Once I get the first phrase, the rest of the song usually "precipitates" over the course of the next few days. It's a brilliant program and makes writing songs a great deal of fun: but you know this already!

Take care. I'm looking forwarding to hear your next work.

Noel

Hi Ray,

Thank you! I really appreciate your taking time out to have a listen. I've got to say "Thank you", too, for all the documentation that you make available to all the world. A little while back when I was trying to get the hang of recording, mixing, etc., your writings helped me a great deal. Thank you so much for putting them together!

All the best,
Noel

Hi Mike,

Thank you for having a listen! I'm flattered that you like the song. Little by little, I seem to be getting a bit better at singing and performing. Maybe one day I will try it live. I've got to say that, as much as I'd love to, I can't take all the credit for writing. Band In A Box is a dream to work with. It's brilliant. The program takes me to places that I never ever, in my wildest dreams, imagined that I'd be able to go.

Have you got a new song ready for the forums yet? I'm looking forward to it!

All the best,
Noel

Sounds great, Noel. Enjoyed that. The mix/master was great. The organ really sounded good, tastefully placed. Loved the slide.

Hey Charlie,

Thank you for having a listen. Whatever talent (or note) I have, really pales in comparison to what you do! I think your work is just brilliant. I'm eagerly awaiting your next production now.

All the best,
Noel

Hi Carlos,

Thank you. I appreciate your positive comments. I've got to say, I thoroughly enjoy listening to your work. I keep going back to the "Latin Cowboy" song you've posted and listening to it over and over. It's exceptional.

All the best,
Noel

Hi Noel,

We have a User Showcase forum. It's "one-floor down" from the off-topic forum. It opened up after you posted this song link, but re-posts of previously made song links are welcome. Perhaps you could re-post your message in the User Showcase, so people find all the users' songs in one place. (and of course links to your other originals as well)

This applies to anyone else who has previously posted their song links.... post 'em again in the User Showcase Forum

Note that this is only for original songs, no links to covers or copyrighted songs.

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.
