SNEAKY PETE -> http://soundclick.com/share.cfm?id=12869389

We wrote this one for a movie opportunity. They wanted something quirky, jazzy and with minimal lead. This is what we offered, but it wasn't selected. It was intended for a comedy scene in which a guy is sneaking around his neighbor's house in the middle of the night.

BIAB Tracks:

File:Al - Sneaky Pete.MGU
Key=Bb , Tempo 103, Length (m:s)=3:39
8 bar intro, 28 bar chorus, from bar 9 to bar 36. Repeat x3 choruses
Melody has 188 notes, Melody harmony is < no harmony >(0)
Soloist track has 134 notes, Soloist harmony is < no harmony >(0)
Song is saved with Volume, Pan, Reverb, Chorus, Bank0,
Song is saved with bar changes for Volume Changes,
Soloist is saved with the song : CLASSICAL16: Piano (245)
Style is NEWJAZZ1.STY (New Jazz 1 - medium 4/4 swing)
Style MIDI Instruments are : Acoustic String Bass (33), Vibes (12), Marimba (13), Clarinet (72),
MIDI Drums :41 Brushes Kit (41)

RealDrums will be substituted :JazzBrushes#1: a: JazzBrushes#1b: JazzBrushes#1
*******************

We hope you don't mind if we post a couple of songs fairly c;lose together as we may not get another opportunity to post for a couple of weeks. But, we don't want to hog the board either.

Thanks,

Alan & Di

Cool stuff!! I could totally see this working for the scene described. Isn't "Sneaky Pete" the name of a studio musician from the past? Possible pedal steel or slide guitar? Name rings a bell. Very cool effort here!! Take care. Greg

Alan & Di, just loved it! you know that I'm an instrumental kind of composer, and this one is right up my alley. You didn't have to describe the mood, it's perfectly set. I's hard not to imagine what's going on.
Thanks for posting.

Mike B.

Hi Greg...

So glad you liked it! Thanks for letting me know. As far as a musician nicknamed "Sneaky Pete", I'm not sure but possibly it was pedal steel player, Pete Drake. That's just a guess, though.

Again, thanks for the listen and very nice comments!

Alan & Di

Alan,

A VERY enjoyable listen! Great mix, cool instrumentation.

I was expecting some pedal steel, though...

plish,

Thanks for those mighty nice words! So glad you enjoyed and the music did its job for the intended purpose. And yeah, those breaks were put in to create additional drama, as silence almost always does (well, silent except for the brushes). Thanks again!

Hi Floyed,

So glad you thought it was "cool"! It never crossed our minds to use a pedal steel. Hmmm ... maybe something new to play around with! Thanks for you kind comments! Best to you,

Alan & Di

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:
