This song uses a mix of tracks from PG styles DRJON_E and CBOOG1E, two styles I initially couldn’t decide between. But I ended up using the piano track from DRJON (it’s midi, played through a Ketron SD2) and the DRJON bass track (also midi, playing the Upright Studio Bass software instrument that comes with Logic Pro). I took the RealDrums from CBOOG1E, along with one of CBOOG1E’s electric guitar real tracks (the one that is actually to be found on that style’s piano track). I borrowed the harmonica from another PG style's real track, don’t recall which one right now. The only thing I actually played is the steel string acoustic guitar (via keyboard - another software instrument) that’s working against the harmonica in the break. The vocal harmonies were generated via the new FlexPitch feature in Logic Pro X. All comments welcome.

That's a spot on production and an arrangement that well supports the vocal. A really cool and clever lyric that has way too much truth in it for sure. I got a bit of a Maria Muldaur Jug Band feel from it. Nice.

Enjoyed the listen....and it made me happy that we are vegetarians who eat mostly local farm products!

Very clever. Sort of reminds me a little of Randy Newman, in some ways. Good production. Enjoyed it!

Wow Gilley! very well put together, never mind that you have me laughing all the way thru. I always think the same thing when I listen the the "medical reports", that's why I don't pay any attention to them. Believe me, you live happier!

Regards

Mike B.

Witty and fun:) The kind of tune I hear on 'A Prairie Home Companion', that audience would love this and so did I.

Hilarious!!!

this cafe had some rodents, now they've been subdued
they died quite prematurely, from eating the food

Love those lines! Very clever and fun, and I'm pretty sure nobody's written one like this. Really funny. Keep it up!! Take care. Greg

Well, alright. Someone finally wrote a song about the nonstop stream of scare-bytes on the dangers of this, that, and, oh yeah, the other thing too. Coffee? This week is raises your IQ. Next week, more than 2 cups and you're crusin' for pancreatic cancer.

Not just any song. Truly hilarious, clever, and right on!

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:
