If you don't like Country, you're gonna HATE this. Always wanted this song to have that "tinkly country piano" and a pedal steel. Thanks to PGMusic and BIAB, that is now possible!!!

Feeling Nothing At All

Here are the RealTracks:

Style is WALTZIN.STY (Waltzin' - Slow Sw. Waltz)

RealTracks in song: ~1121:Bass, Acoustic, CountryWaltz Sw 085
RealTracks in song: 1884:Piano, Acoustic, Soloist Country12-8John Sw 065 (Bluesy)
RealTracks in song: ~824:Guitar, Acoustic, Strumming Country Waltz Sw 085
RealTracks in song: ~1126:Pedal Steel, Rhythm CountryWaltz Sw 085
RealDrums in Song: NashvilleWaltzSw^2-a:Sidestick, Hihat , b:Snare, Ride

As always, comments/suggestions welcomed.

floyd,

I like country, I like country waltz's.
Hence you've got a real winner here.
Your vocals are powerful, and the harmony adds nice touch.
Your lyrics tell an awfully sad heartbreaking story.

The tinkelies sound good me.

I could not listen to this too many times, you are very convincing
with your vocals. I'd have tear in my beer.

Thanks for your hard work, and sharing with us!

I feel some Kenny Rogers and some Willie also.

Very nicely done,

Very nice tune and recording. I think I hear some Charlie Rich in there.

Guys - thanks for listening and for the comments. Obviously, no one does this type of song these days - the comparisons all being 30 (?) years back - Gilley, Kenny, Willie - and I had forgotten about Charlie Rich. The piano does sound a lot like his playing. It's nice to be able to "call on" John Jarvis when you need him....

Wow - you really captured what "real country music" should sound like. You hit all the marks - sad, booze, broken heart... - it's a 70s hit! What a fantastic hook line. I think this is great. And I too cheer BIAB. I gave my band off for a few weeks but I will be calling them back any day now.

Great work!

Floyd,

I just took your style information and created _WALTZIN RT's with it.
Listened to that song so many times.

Am going to create a melodist with it and then try it on a song.

Appreciate your sharing and just love the song...Again.....

Nice slow country groove. I find it harder to mix songs of that tempo than any other. Good tears in the beer and saw dust on the floor lyrics also.

Mootsman - thanks for the listen. The only hard thing about ths one was getting the piano to "fit". The rest just fell into place.

seeker - glad that you could get something out of this. Keep in mind - the piano track is not necessarily meant for this style or tempo. I generated about 25 different version - the variety was amazing. Of those, I heard about 5 that had licks that I liked (thought were right for what I was after). From those 5, I picked pieces to come up with the final track....

I dont generally like country music. but this is the best thing I've heard here in a while! Your voice certainly suits the genre. Love the country break in the voice. Two woots!

Hi Floyd,

You sure know how to maintain "consistently excellent". I sat back, closed my eyes and just listened. It was great.

All the best,
Noel

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows was released in December 2018, and included many new features and enhancements - like the enhancements we made to our Notation window!

These include:
-Pressing the space bar plays the song from the current location.
-Double-clicking on the Standard mode Notation window (or on the time line in Editable or Staff Roll mode) plays the song from the current time location.
-The right-click menu in the Editable or Staff Roll mode Notation window has an option to change the current beat resolution. Previously, the only way to do this was to right-click on the time line.
-Clicking close to a stave line will put a note on the stave line instead of between stave lines. Previously, you had to click extremely close to a stave line to insert a note on it.
-In the Notation Windows Options dialog, the clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
-The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
-You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
-A new track type (Drums) is available for the Melody and Soloist tracks.
-Holding down the Ctrl key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
-There's a keystroke entry mode -the "N" mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, up/down cursor to change its pitch, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
-A new button in the Print Options dialog lets you quickly print a "chords only" fake sheet. You can also access this from the right-click menu on the Chord Sheet.
-You can now edit any track in the Event List Editor. When the dialog opens, it will show you the MIDI data in the current notation track.


There's detailed information on our 2019 notation enhancements here: Band-in-a-Box® 2019 New Feature - Notation Enhancements

Jump to the Notation topic in our Band-in-a-Box® 2019 new features video.

Review details and download here

Summary of changes for build 315 (Nov 15, 2019):

Fixed: Exporting MusicXML files was not working.
Fixed: When using "Auto-Hand split Piano track" feature, exported MIDI files contain wrong note durations on the Piano track.

Fixed: User should be prompted to save their song when exiting, if they had added or removed plugins.

My Favorite Things - Nudge Chords in Band-in-a-Box®

Love this time saving feature.

Ever fill in the chordsheet fully or for part of song, and then discover you want to add or take away an extra beat or more somewhere in the chordsheet.

Nudge chords (melody) from the Edit Menu is your friend here, the dialog will give you all the options either to remove or add beats where its needed.

Love it.
