I LOVE YOU COMCASTICALLY
https://soundcloud.com/mister-gilley/i-love-you-comcastically

The basic tracks are PG’s bossa realstyle B140TB. I don’t think I used the included Trombone track, but it gave me the idea to add some trumpet here and there when I imported the tracks into Logic Pro. There’s also an alto sax way low under the trumpet. I added some strings from another PG style, and some vocal “aahs” to the bridge. The midi tracks (trumpet, sax, ahhs) were all done on a Ketron SD2. There are no special plug ins, etc., other than compressions, reverb, etc. that included with Logic Pro 9.

All comments appreciated.

Gilley:

This song is GREAT. Lyrics, mood, use of BIAB, etc. Really nicely done.

You should definitely do a Music Video of this for youtube. I think it would add even more to the humor.

Welcome to the forum, and by all means do a video for this tune.

Very enjoyable!

Mr Gilley

This is really excellent, the style choice works absolutely great, and the vocals phrasing is really well done. The bridge fits nicely.

I really enjoyed listening

Hi Gilley,

very enjoyable.
If only I knew what 'comcastically' means.
(The word you've entered isn't in the dictionary).

For its genre it's a nice song, I tend to like rock over jazz\country so it's a bit hard for me to comment to much

Gilley,

Very clever and well done. The "antenna/and then a" rhyme was brilliant.

You have to be on Comcast Cable to know what he is talking about. It's a love/hate relationship. Very good!!! occ

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.

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.
