Hi Steve...

This is our first time to listen to you. We didn't hear the original version but this one sure is nice! We loved the natural, relaxed feel you have. It's like we're all sitting around on the porch and singing as the mood strikes us. It's that casual and engaging. We loved this gem! TRhe birds at the end was a real nice touch!

I (Al) have been to England twice...same place on business. I was in Burtonwood, a small village near Warrington. loved my few days there!

Thanks for a calming and soothing listen...

Al & Di

Thanks for your kind words, it means a lot.

I used to live about a mile from Burtonwood in Warrington, so I know it well, I presume you were in the forces. As a curiosity I was in Waverly Tn a couple of years ago when I was on route with the wife from Memphis to Nahville and stopped over.

I am new to this forum, having only got BIAB this Christmas and so far loving it.
Again many thanks Steve

Steve...

Isn't it amazing you've been to the town in which I live and I have been to the town in which you formerly lived...and we're an ocean apart!

Yes, I was in the US Army, stationed in Germany but we had a support warehouse in Burtonwood. I went there to inventory and "hand out" a few new rules.

We've had BIAB for about 2 years. We just upgraded to 2014 this past week. We wish success and musical satisfaction. Best to you, mate!

Steve, a heartfelt "Welcome" to what I think is the most knowledgeable music forum on this planet. We are songwriters and musicians at every level of achievement who are willing to share that knowledge with noobs. Never be embarrassed to ask questions. A sage musician is quoted as saying: "The only stupid question is the one never asked!"

Hi Steve,

Your song is beautiful.

For a work of this nature, my observations are that there is always elegance in simplicity and your song carried that elegance through quality writing, quality performance and skilful production.

I really enjoyed listening to this one. It's wonderful.

Regards,
Noel

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows!

There are Notation Enhancements in the NEW Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows! These include:
•A new button in the Print Options dialog which lets you quickly print a "chords only" fake sheet. You can also access this from the right-click menu on the chord sheet.
•A new track type (Drums) is now 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 The line.)
•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. Previously, it played the song from the beginning of the current bar.
•Holding down the [Ctrl] key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
•In The Notation Windows Options dialog, The clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
•Pressing The space bar plays the song from the current time location, not the current bar.
•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's a keystroke entry notation 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.
•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.
•You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.

We talk about these new features within our Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows®! New Features, RealTracks, and other content! video:
