Professional User Testimonial And Demo #rodneygenejunior #BIAB - 11/11/19 05:00 PM

Good evening friends and fellow BIABers...!! I think Callie is going to post this on the PG Music YouTube page in a day or two as well but invited me to post here if I wanted to! Honestly, the least I could do is be a courteous enough fellow user to say hola, howdy, hello and how ya' doing!! Although...I am rarely around..*here*.. I am always close if ya'll ever need anything. Easy to get in touch with!

So...If you have friends on the fence about BIAB, this may help. Another professional user video and perspective, layed out pretty dang simple…and a bit of my work flow here.

Thank you all for what you do in support of this great tool! Appreciate it, and you!

Cheers and infinite blessings, RG

That is a super video!

IMHO the best line was "you can not outgrow this software". That is so true and should be a slogan for PGMusic.

Cheers Mario! Thank you for the terrific comments! 'You can outgrow your belt loop...but not your BIAB music loops!'... laugh LOL, I'll stick to writing music music and not slogans!

Rodney - that was most excellent. As a very long-time user, I don't need convincing about BIAB, but just really enjoyed hearing you play and using very tasty selections for the backing.

J ford! Thank you sir, appreciate the excellent comment! Understood, no convincing needed here either! Grateful musician. I do find it energizing to watch others folks who can dig deep into the software, I am pretty well a surface scratcher with BIAB! laugh Cheers, RG

That was a great video. You really explained the qualities of BIAB and eloquently went through the way you personally used the software. Really enjoyable and skilled performing too. I really think so many musicians just don’t realise how great a tool BIAB is and maybe get put off by the fact that the interface looks a little cluttered and maybe also because it’s been around for a long time. However great software takes a lot of time to develop and BIAB is certainly great software. Congratulations in showing showing this so effectively

Cheers Tony, thanks for the good words brother! Yeah, I hear ya! Very few musicians are inner-directed enough when it comes to choosing gear. There is very little about BIAB on the surface that is sexy, chic or hip. It still emits an educational vibe and a bit of an archaic GUI. But those are the things that I LOVE about it. A metaphor for so many quality experiences missed due to surface judgment. The irony (to me) is that those qualities seem to be intentional with the intent to best serve the majority of users. That said, BIAB seems to maintain a dedicated and long term user base with a slow steady and growing following. When you are in it for the long term as a company, sincere and steady growth at any pace is a welcome result. Long lasting influence is best transmitted through subtle consistent integrity and that is what I experience with PG Music. cool RG

Rodney Gene,

Nice to see your presence on the forum again. The forum always feels a little smaller when you're not here. Very interesting video to watch and listen to. As a dedicated Band-in-a-Box fan it's pleasant to have an accomplished musician reinforce my positive feelings for the product.

Cheers Rob! And best back to you! Nah, it was fun work - always a pleasure to support something you believe in. But yes I would dig an intensive self study into BIAB for a few weeks stretch to see what I could learn. I have so much to do as an independent muso that I find I am a "learn as I go and only what is necessary to get the job done kind of user"...LOL. I miss out on alot of my equipment's potential.

Here's an update on the Gibson Double neck...

Realizing the Provenance of the guitar is greater than just it's value to our family because no one in our immediate family beyond my brother and myself ever knew our mother, and no one in our family beyond my brother or myself play guitar, and finally the fact the guitar was up for some maintenance, I sold the guitar to a museum late last year.

I was able to do research and interviews with older, distant family friends and relatives and secure photos and stories to provide the museum so that the provenance of the guitar and the guitar itself will now last for generations. The history of the guitar intact.

The museum's assessment, inspection and evaluation of the guitar was an amazing experience. They flew a luthier/curator in from NYC to Myrtle Beach, I picked him up and we went to a nearby music store I do a lot of business with and they provided us a room for the inspection. 3+ hours -- and not only was the gentleman involved but using his iPhone, he discussed and sent photos back to NYC where 5 others participated in the evaluation.

Interesting fact I learned from the museum's research into the guitar is that it isn't a 1959 model but was made in 1957. It is also the actual guitar used in the sales catalog that had survived and was always kept in the guitar case over the years.

The guitar has a permanent home in Chattanooga, TN at Songbirds Museum. I didn't know it at the time but they have actively been accumulating as many of the original 46 double neck guitars as possible. So it was quite a catch for them.

One of the things they do at Songbird is allow celebrity and world class musicians to do concerts at the museum using vintage guitars from their collection. So, old Betsy will likely feel the excitement of a stage again sometime in her future.

There's an interesting side note about that $250,000 guitar for sale on Reverb.com you put me on to that I'll save for another day... Suffice it to say the head curator was well aware of that guitar.

Have a good one,
