Hi folks,

Some time ago there was an interesting discussion in the off-topic forum that all country songs these days seem to be about drinking, my truck, my tractor, so having fallen into the trap, here is another little country/folksy song about drinking smile

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WzF5X0g5Br4

The galtymore was a mainly irish dancehall in London Uk but has been closed now for a few years.

Craic (pronounced crack) is an Irish expression meaning fun, nothing to do with drugs....lol

Midi Style is C_BUCK.STY (Country Buck style)
Style MIDI Instruments are : Finger Electric Bass (34), Acoustic Piano (1), Acoustic Guitar (26), Clean Electric Guit (28),


The accordion part was notated
Any comments welcome.

Thanks
musiclover

Excellent.
That brought back many memories, some I'd prefer to forget blush of my time in London 1967-80. I forget most of the names of the Irish bars/ clubs we drank in as we too enjoyed the craic, not so much the next morning but we definitely enjoyed the night!!!
Craic is part of my vocabulary now but I'd forgotten how it was spelt!!!!

Really enjoyed the trip down memory lane,

Alyn

Thanks very much Charlie, Pg, and Alan & Di for taking the time to listen and your nice comments.

Still trying to improve and taking tips from all you pro's here.

Just got myself a used pair of studio monitors behringer truth b2030a today, I hope that it might improve my ability to mix, here's hoping anyway.

Thanks again.

Musiclover you did the Irish proud with this one. Everything about this was super.

PS - I have a wee bit if Irish in me, not much though, just enough to like the music and beer cool

Hi musiclover,

I agree with all that's been said. It's a fun song that delivers lots of chuckles! You had me tapping my feet from start to end.

All the best,
Noel

Hi Musiclover,
Nice folky song. We were wondering... are the drums also midi, 'cause they sound more like real drums. If so, which one did you use?
Regards,
R & AM

Thanks very much Mario, JosieC, Sundance,Noel, R@AM and Janice and Bud for your kind encouragement.

It is very much appreciated particularly in view of the fact that due to family commitments I do not get enough time go on the user forum myself and post about all the great music here.

I do feel guilty about asking people to listem to my song while not posting a lot myself on user forum. I hope you will forgive me.

R@AM the realdrums are,
NashvilleSwing8^5-a:Sidestick, HiHat , b:Snare, HiHat.

Many thanks to all, I have a long way to go in terms of mixing and trying to get it up to studio quality like a lot of songs on here are at.

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.
