This tune I wrote for two guitars, I recorded it that way playing both guitars.

Then I tried a version with BIAB and liked it better. Those real track guys play so much better than I do. Dig the BIAB bass track, so pro and it really sounds like he came up with the perfect part for this tune.

I used BIAB RealTracks for all tracks except lead guitar. I exported the individual tracks into Reaper where I recorded the guitar part simultaneously recording on a web cam. I added some pictures and video from a ski trip.

Here is the lead sheet:



Here is the recording:

Frank,

This is exceptional. "Hittin' on all cylinders". Pleasing to listen to. Good mix. Great clean tone on the guitar. And the video worked really well.

I enjoyed it. Hope to hear/see more from you.

Nice.... It reminded me that this year I need to schedule a ski trip to the mts.... it's been too long.

Nothing like a nice slope on a day like there with sub freezing temps so the snow stays fast all day.

Unfortunately, here in NC on a day like that they have the snow machines going full force since natural snow is few and far between....

Last year was a huge bust for the NC slopes.... little snow and above freezing temps kept the season from being a good one. They opened late and closed early and a few resorts never opened all their trails.

nice playing on the video.... I would have muted the video sound on the clips.

Man, we really enjoyed that. Wonderful example of great playing with perfect use of RT's. BTW, I'm a sucker for those bass RTs. I played upright for years....but can almost always find what I want with an RT.

Thanks for posting!!

Hi All,

Thanks for your kind words and encouragement.

Writing music is so much fun. And having a backup bank at my fingertips is even better.

Cheers,

Frank

That's some clean guitar you got going there. Video and the music production are both outstanding. Thanks for sharing!

Hi Frank

Outstanding and Astounding all at the same time. Really tasting jazz playing, the kind I could listen to endlessly. And Jazz Waltz's are always pretty good in my view.

Great job, congratulations.

Frank,

Very, very nice! Great tune, great picking, and the video just brings it together. It's been 100 degrees (plus) for sometime where I am, so this one is really refreshing!

Fixed: In Chords Window, you could not enter held chords on Piano track.
Fixed: LeadSheet might not display tied notes on the last bar of a track.
Fixed: Pressing "M" key in Editable Notation to insert a new note at the current time location on the Staff was inserting a duplicate note rather than inserting it above an existing note.
Fixed: Loading in a MusicXML file could result in MIDI notes of zero instead of the currect MIDI notes.
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.
Fixed: When inserting hard rest, and answering Yes to question about removing notes for the peg, it would remove notes from both clefs instead of the clef that the rest was inserted on.

Fixed: Hammer ons, pull offs, and slides are now being saved to MusicXML files.
Fixed: Exceptionally jittery timing indicator in the notation window during playback compared to older versions of RealBand.

Fixed: Potential access violation if song has micro-pegs and multiple notes on a peg.
Fixed: Accidental element that specified whether a note was displayed as sharp/flat wasn't eing saved to XML, even though the correct pitch of the note itself was saved.

Summary of Changes in Build 5 (Oct 10)

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.
