Hi!

I thought you might like to hear about this course from the online University of Rochester; The Beatles Music. You can take it for free and it covers the whole history of The Beatles. It’s only 6 weeks, a few hours a week and it will allow you to get your Beatles geek on!

And to think... when I went to university, we had to take Organic Chemistry, Physics, Calculus...

The Beatles were part of "extra curricular activities"...which typically got in the way of that other stuff...

The Berklee free on-line courses are worth several hundred dollars each, in my opinion. And they cost nothing.

I will check this one out after February.

Meanwhile, one of the folks that participates in the February Album Writing Month challenge has a blog with 'Tickets to Write', with interesting observations about chord structure/patterns common in Beatles songs. I've used them more than once to get out of typical chord pattern ruts.

Beatles history and music is cool stuff.

I love to hear the stories behind the songs.

I recommend the BBC documentary, "Produced by George Martin" for his pre-Beatles and post-Beatles work and of course plenty in there about the Beatles as well.

Hi all.
I also recommend 'Revolution in the Head' by far the best book on the Beatles that I have read,it mixes social history with musical analysis and gives an astonishing depth of information on the Beatles and 60's music in general.
The author is the late Ian Macdonald and I think there is a 2008 update available so I bet Amazon have got it there.
Cya.

Band-in-a-Box® Features List!

Every version release of Band-in-a-Box® adds loads of new features and enhancements to the program, which we're sure can sometimes get "lost" in your knowledge of the program's capabilities.

Looking to learn about new features with a specific release? It's actually really easy to locate this information!

Learn tips on the new version (2019) by visiting Help | Tip of the Day and placing a check mark next to "Only Show Tips for Version 2019" (you'll also need to select "Show Tips at Startup", if it's not already).

Access the new features list for older versions in the Help Index of the program - from the left-menu, choose Contents | Features and a list of New Features will show - all the way back to Version 7!

#FeatureFriday

#TBT Band-in-a-Box® Goes to NAMM

As we get ready to head to Summer NAMM this year, we're remembering our time their last year - we had so many visitors stop by our booth!

Click here to take a peak!

Special thanks to Mike and all the RealTracks Artists and PG Endorsers who stopped by. Stay tuned for our Booth Visitors and other happenings from Summer NAMM on July 18-20, 2019! If you find yourself at the event, come say "Hi!" to us at booth 234.

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows StylePicker Feature - Finding RealTracks & MIDI SuperTracks

Did you know... Within Band-in-a-Box®, quickly find styles that use RealTracks (or MIDI SuperTracks!) in a certain range by pressing the [Other] filter button in the StylePicker window and select "Styles that contain RealTracks or MIDI SuperTracks in a number range".

#WisdomWednesday

Band-in-a-Box® Tip of the Day!

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® will show you some helpful "Tips" when you start the program? What a great way for new program users to learn all the features of the program! Want to know Tips on just the latest version? This feature can be adjusted to just show the Tips for that too.

Maybe you're a long-time user of the program, and have this feature turned off? To access Tip of the Day (450+ available!), head to Help | Tip of the Day. Your Tip will appear right away - and you'll have the option of reading the Next Tip if you wanted too! Within this window is where you would also choose to "Show Tips at Startup" (if this is unchecked, you won't see them), or "Only Show Tips for Version 2019".

Here's a few Tips the program informed me of the last time I opened Band-in-a-Box®:

In the Piano Roll window, the 'Ghost Note' function allows you to view a single-channel, and see notes on all other channels display in light grey. This is useful when working with multi-channel tracks.

Want a bigger guitar display? Drag the bottom end of the Guitar Window to change its size, or press the SETTINGS button to set a custom size.

The Printout can use left and right MARGINS. This is useful to make printouts for small paper size or 3 hole paper that requires margins.

Edit | Nudge Chords/Melody. Let's say that you have entered a complete song chord progression, and you then realize that all of the chords starting at bar 23 are 1 beat to late. You can use this feature to slide your chords over by 1 beat.
