Hey Bob and Josie,

This is very 'spooky' indeed! In the thread for my latest song, at 5:46 am, I hinted about your potential next song. Now at 6:56 am, it appears. Wow!!!

As I sit here listening, my first impression is that the overall production has a really professional sound to it. I also found myself entranced by the hook "Tonight the ghost will fly". It's such a good metaphor for a dying, and soon to be dead, relationship (at least that's how the words spun their surrealistic story to me).

It's not often that a song in minor keys comes along. When it does, it always grabs my attention. You've inspired me to try something in minor

Best wishes to you both!
Noel

Thank you Noel. We were going for a very surreal and a very indie vibe.
We always appreciate your thoughtful comments.

Your esp must've been working on the timing of the post.

Hey Guys,

I just started working on a song with a "minor" flavor so I'm relating from the get go on this one.

A very good job! I thought the bongo's really added to the flavor and worked well in the song.

Wow. Been absent form the forums for a while. First thing hear when I sign-in is this haunting song. Lovely productions. The two voices work great together.

Greg,

Thanks. Yes, the "minor" feel was what we were looking for in this song. Look forward to hearing what you are working on.

I like that. Thanks for sharing. You definitely achieved the "indie vibe."
I'm a sucker for a minor key tune. Gotta wonder if we have something in our DNA that makes them sound sad, spooky and, even, sometimes sinister.

Typical Josie and Bob song ie EXCELLENT, your voices go well together.

Cole Porter sets the minor mood well in "Every time we say goodbye"...
"There's no love song finer but how strange the change from major to minor every time we say goodbye"

anyway gonna listen to YOUR song, again now

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.

Attention Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Mac users - a new FREE patch update (build 315) is available!
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: Note-based lyrics were not included when exporting MIDI files.
Fixed: User should be prompted to save their song when exiting, if they had added or removed plugins.
Fixed: The Record Audio dialog always says “Track type is Stereo” even if the track type is mono.
Fixed: The [Audio Options…] button in the Record Audio dialog was launching the Audio Devices dialog instead of the Audio Settings dialog.
Fixed: Loops dialog title bar displays wrong track name.
Fixed: Large patch map files are not completely loaded (were limited to 1985 patches).
Fixed: Notation context menu > Edit Section Text… did not do anything.
Fixed: Notation context menu > Insert Section Text… did not do anything.

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.
