Michie, I really liked this one. The fiddle break is especially interesting. Sort of a break tempo. Good job.

Hi, George !

This sounds like an real "oldie"
and IMO I think this could have
gone surprisingly well as a
barbershop arrangement also ?
I enjoyed this one really much !

Cheers
Dani

Very well done, love the style and your voice is outstanding in it. Kind of has old country sound, like Jim Reeves to me. Thanks for sharing!

Don - Fit like min'

I tried to make a style and song that would sound kinda like a old Dixiland style.
I failed to do that but quite liked this style.
I added the fiddle to noodle around just to add interest.
-------------------------------------------------------
Dani - Fit like min' (this means - in Doric - How are you doing) smile

Thanks for saying that it sounded like an Oldie.
I was trying to get the oldie sound.
I may try your suggestion about a barbershop arrangement. smile
------------------------------------------------------------
Mike B - Thanks for taking a listen.

And of course for commenting that you liked it.
----------------------------------------------------
Josie - Hi Thanks for taking a listen.

Glad you liked the ol' soft shoe vaudeville vibe. smile

Enjoyable and interesting listen. I agree with the couple of "soft shoe" references. Very good use of the fiddle. Thanks for the post.

George,

It's all been said but the only thing missing that would have had me sitting in that old theater was a little crowd noise in the background.

As already in envisioned you in that "seersucker suit" with a straw hat just soft shoeing around that stage.

Good job.

Later

I can see the fiddler playing when I listen to the song.
Never thought about a theater act laugh

Thanks for taking a listen.

Fixed: Dragging a file into the tracks window didn't always result in the effects slot for the track being setup properly for the file type dragged in.

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit for macOS Catalina

With Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit for Mac we added Drum Notation Support, and we didn't stop there! Other Notation Enhancements added in this new version are:

-A new track type (Drums) is available for the Melody and Soloist tracks.
-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.
-Holding down the control key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
-In the Notation Window Options dialog, the clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
-Notation is much clearer, not jagged, on retina screens.
-The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
-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.
-There is a keystroke entry mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, M to enter a third note, up/down cursor to change the pitch of the highlighted note, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
-You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
