Santa saw your facebook page and to make your christmas merry

He’s bringing you some brand new clothes and great big dictionary

Christmas is a race to see which gives out first

Your money or your feet I don’t know which one is worse



I hate company christmas parties and this I have to say

It burns me up when I have to look for a job the very next day

Granma bought some batteries and attached them to a note

Toys are not included and that is all she wrote




If the relatives start to fight like they have in the past

Put some mistletoe in your back pocket so that they can kiss your A**

I guess it’s time to celebrate so pass the christmas cheer

If the dog don’t bite Santa we’ll have a happy holiday this year




lights are on the front porch but no snow is on the ground

Cause it’s eighty degrees and the wreath you bought is turning kind of brown

Frosty the snowman ain’t gonna melt cause he’s made from styrofoam

Christmas makes me homesick even though I’m home

Tom,

Super. A solid write through and through. A really strong lyric - you should post them along with this - always nice to be able to read a lyric - especially one this good.

A solid mix as well. It all fit together perfectly. Good vocal to go along with it all...

I enjoyed this immensely.

Happy Holiday to you!

floyd

Well done.

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Herb, Bob,and Rich, Thanks for listening and commenting.

Floyd and Dani, Glad you enjoyed this one. Thanks for the kind words.

Josie, My son said what's with the whistle, who do you think you are Andy Griffith? I guess the younger generation can't identify part of the melody from Jingle Bells. Thanks for the comments. Glad I got an LOL.

Danny, David and George, Thanks for taking the time to listen and comment.

Again, To all my forum friends, Happy Holidays!

Super cool and very clever. Nothing to apologize for re the slide show -- it works perfectly. Please do add the lyric. Gonna share this one with the family for sure. Oh, and as always, the vocal and mix are top notch.

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.

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Mac Build 315 Update Available!

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.
