LOL.... It's November 15th already?

congrats on being first. did you write and record this in three hours?

I like to be early for some things.... but yeah..... the point is wait so everyone else has the time and opportunity to get their songs done.... then we all post in that time window.

from the OP " You can post earlier if you have it ready but generally, no sooner than November 15. We want them all posted at about the same time. "


cool tune though...

Oops!

My apologies never read the original post correctly blush

Ah well

Yes I wrote and recorded this in 3 hours (can't you tell smile )

Although it doesn't include a holiday it tells about winter coming, which I thought would be ok.

Hi George,

I love what you've done with this song. Quite honestly, I'm sitting here at the moment green with envy that you can whip up something as good as this in 3 hours!!!!!! I'm stunned. This is absolutely my new favourite "George Nelson / Mikee" song.

All the best,
Noel

Hi, George !:))

This was a most interesting tune !:))
It really has that minor feel in it
that gives us the hint of the forecoming
cold and dark times !:))


Cheers
Dani

Hi Noel,

Thank you for taking a listen.

You will know that sometimes he just taps you on the shoulder and Hey Presto! a song just happens, well that was what happened to me.
I have no idea where it comes from (which sounds very strange) but, that was the way this song came to life. confused

I admit that at other times if I try to force a song out it just will not happen, go figger!

George

George - I keep trying to listen - but Soundcloud is acting up on yours - and yet, I can play others. I sure wish they would get that fixed! I'll try again later....

George,

It finally played for me. Usually does eventually. Can't figure out what the cause (or fix) might be.

This is really well done. A tight lyric. A good vocal. Nice choice of RTs. Very good mix. One of your best!

Summary of Changes in Build 2:
Fixed: Sometimes the position of the VST/DX plugs window (even if not visible) would prevent a drop, such as into the drop station, from occurring.

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: Potential access violation when deleting a note in staff window.
Fixed: Potential jukebox access violation if there were songs with the entire path of the filename being 256 characters or greater loaded into jukebox.
Fixed: Jukebox not playing the playlist in correct order in certain situations involving stopping/restarting, etc.

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.

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.
