The perspective is a cool narrative tool. That swing thing works a treat and there's not much to offer but - very cool, great fun and well done.

That galloping drum style isn't a train beat. I'm not exactly sure what it's called, drummers I've worked with in the studio always just referred to it as a gallop. I'm not aware of anything close in BIAB, but it would be a great one to request. I would use something like that on occasion myself.

To me the bars excluding bar 8 look OK, though the second half of each bar is in 8th+quarter style, not dotted quarter note (I too prefer dotted-quarters in this situation). I'm not sure if bar 8 is resolvable into the quadruplet, that's beyond my experience. There is an option, by right-clicking in the beat, to change beat resolution, but in my limited experiments, the notes were not displayed as a quadruplet. There's no mention of quadruplets in the manual, but that's hardly surprising as B

Someone told me I had the resolution set to swing and recommended to turn off swing. I did, but I could still not do what I want. Gave me same results.

Howdy Ari.... I agree with all previous comments. Well produced, good vocals, well performed and fine mix. I'll have to brush up on my Icelandic. Maybe I'm the only one but I hear a latent Stones vibe on this one. I like it....have a good one.

However, I note that it can also be done in swing time by putting the second note in the bar on the third dashed vertical of the bar, not on the middle line as the OP is doing.

Floyd, What a fun song! The music bed is the perfect vehicle for the lyrics! You did such a great job putting that band together! It would seem that Bill is a great collaborator! I could go on and on about your songwriting abilities because you just keep churning out one great song after another, year after year! I don't know how you do it! But don't ever stop! Thanks, Torrey

Agree 100% Joe. I tried importing into Musescore and it DID import easily. However, it came in as 4/4 time and I could not change time to 3/4. I only imported the melody staff. I will keep playing with it and then see if I can eventually import back into BIAB. BIAB is so much quicker inputting chords than Musescore, but not so much with notation. The song I'm working on is called Nola's Waltz and it won the Young Jazz Composer's Award of 2005. It's by Bob Borgstede and he used to be my inst

First a general comment. I’ve used most notation software and served as a beta tester for two (three if you count BIAB). I love the notation entry of BIAB. prefer to enter new parts in BIAB rather than any of the others, but then I export the part as MIDI or Music XML to a dedicated notation software. MuseScore is surprisingly good for a free product. What style are you using, and is it Even or a Swing style?

Firstly, Ray well expressed our feelings: "Sad to hear of your circumstances and thanks for putting the effort in all day, every day to makes Di's life better." Absolutely. It's been oft said by us and others but your ability to create all BiaB tunes is a showcase in the showcase forum. We love it and we agree that the EV/SW mashup works well. Welcome back and we look forward to more! J&B

Thanks Noel. I found that video before and it was not a great help. I think the issue is 3/4 time. I was able to create a dotted quarter and I was able to get the next note section to tie. I started thinking that a tied eight and quarter not is really the same as a dotted quarter note? Maybe I can't replicate the sheet music the way I want. Maybe BIAB will not support this notation in 3/4. I may have to try 6/8. But thanks for the help. JD

As Bud said, "Man oh man do I wish I'd come up with that notion. Happy Hour Blues Yeah!" But, hey, you took your notion, wrote a cool lyric around it, gave it a good dose of the multi-talented Mario and voila ... a most cool blues tune indeed. Great performances all the way around ... love the axe and, hey, don't sell yourself short on the vocals! Fun. J&B
