Lil'Dixie

I was tempted to abandon this but after hearing Mario's Jammin' piece I figured... hey why not? :-)

This is probably the most ecclectic mix of RB patches I've tried so far.

Drums - RD Blues Rock Slow - 85BPM
Bass - Some RT1732 Texas Funky Bass w/ a lil RT572 BB for the A Part
AGuit - RT365 Fingerpicking
EGuit - RT573 and RT576

Here's where it gets a lil wonky... (I'd have never thought these could work together)

Piano - RT1905 - Acoustic Bolero
Organ - RT1657 - Solo Bossa

Anyway, perhaps a bit rough in parts - Guitar solo is oversaturated in places but hey I liked it anyway.

Hope you enjoy!

MarioD posted a piece called "Just Jammin'" with he and a keyboardist earlier this week... I liked it so much I wanted to see if I could accomplish something similar w/ just RB.

Not quite the same as "live players" (well, RB samples do start as live)... we just get to butcher them up... nonetheless it worked for me.

One of these days maybe I'll drag my guitar rig out of the closet and lay down something myself. ;-) or not.

Trust me, it will be nothing compared to the Nashville cats chops we get to mashup and mangle w/ RB.

Wow... no comments. Didn't think it was that bad.

Don,

1st of all I like the vibe of what you have put together here re: the realtracks. Now to the statement above . . . . MAN DO IT!

I say this because I know that BIAB has made me a better player than I was before BIAB. So please take this "MAN DO IT comment" with all the encouragment I intend it to be.

My bet is that after you drag that old ax out of the closet and work with it on some BIAB jams you will be surprised at how quickly things will start to gel. #2 before you know it you will be posting tracks featuring your own leads.

Keep up the good work.

PS: Now I am not promising you will play like Magic Fingers Mario, but you will do well.

Later,

Hey, I think the mix of RB tracks works well together. You know, more importantly for me, I've learned something from your song. I've listened to it several times and I like how you've laid out the RB tracks...there's something there I need to learn.

Thx all - appreciated.

Mountain - not sure what you might have learned from me, I'd love to hear what that was - probably purely accidental on my part ;-)

Not much more for me on this one - time to abandon for something else... maybe a Dire Straits knock-off - I heard someone here this week (name escapes me) that used the Knoppler Solo's and I liked what I heard.

As to my own playing - I'll get there. Essentialy we recently bought a new house - one of the casualties was a space for me to rehearse and record.

I'm working on making the garage a man cave, acoustically horrid but I'll make it work - hopefully ready by spring's end. In the interim, please bare with my blatant knock-offs - I'm finding that it's a great way to learn to find my way around RB.

Anyway, again, thanks.

Don,

I just tried to have a listen to your song and it's not there! Sorry I missed the boat. I promise to catch the next one you post

Regards,
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

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.
