Very pretty song!! Love the way the music works. Would be interesting to hear with the EP being more Wurly and less bell-like. Really nice stuff!! Take care. Greg

Bob,

I always appreciate your ear squint and comments. You have always encouraged me.

I wish I could take more credit but that's BIAB all the way! I entered the chord progression then Brent Mason and John Jarvis dropped over to burn the tracks.

I so love Peter Gannon and his superlative crew for giving back an ability for musical expression that I thought was forever lost.

Thanks again, Peter!

Thanks, Greg, actually, the EP, is a little too far back in the mix but I liked it so rendered it that way.

As for tweaks - I used Audacity's default compressor setting, a soft knee, and that's all that I found necessary.

So happy that you enjoyed it.

These PG Forums are the most supportive, friendly, knowledgeable musicians on this planet, bar none. Musicians at any level are never flamed by members of these forums, some of whom could write volumes on music theory but have, instead, chosen to hang their diplomas, credentials, and egos at the door to become members of Dr Gannon's family.

Did I mention that I love this place and the countless friends, worldwide, that lurk here?

Ahrg! Fooled again! eek

You're right about Dr. G and the Crew, Don. We're all in their debt for allowing us to hear the music that fills your head.

Bob, what prevents us, his entire PG Family, from acknowledging him and honoring him in some small, but memorable, way? Something that he will actually use!

I will give it my utmost support but feel grossly inadequate to organize it. Fellow BBer, Danny Campo, is immersed in such things and may have fabulous suggestions. Just mentioning Danny brought a thought to mind - how about organizing a combo Bayou Fishing trip and Nashville - New Orleans tour. Danny knows many pro Blues artists as well as Country artists. It would be fun for everyone involved. Please consider it then PM me with your thoughts. Incidentally, do non residents require fishing licenses? If not outlandish cost, I'll cover his licensing fees.

16 year old, Lana Mason, Brent's niece, would gladly be his entourage tour guide in N-ville and her Dad, Randy, is house drummer/guitarist at Grand Ole Opry's famed Ryman Auditorium in Nville.

Danny could guide him through Bluesville/Jazzville, Nawlins. A bit of organizing would make this an unforgettable experience for Peter who spends so much time out of sight and back stage. Depending upon his schedule, I'll ask Ventures' Nokie Edwards to meet Peter somewhere mutually convenient.

This could be great fun for everyone!

Several have been wanting a BIAB convention, this could be it!

J&B, yes, Brent and John musta saw the porch laht owan (Okie-speak) and stopped in to blow the foam offin a few. They are both yer basic party animals!

It's absolutely amazing that we can invite such great artists to jam with us and back our tracks.

Thanks so much, Peter, for enabling me to express my love of music again, you, sir, are simply awesome! Sans lol.

Hi Don, nice tune and production. The EP sound sounds to me more like a vibe than EP, hence the "bell" like tone. I'm I mistaking? It would be good if you are so kind to post the style and sounds used. Thanks

Mike B.

Don, although the Peter Gannon and his crew write the best music software out there it takes a lot of talent to put it together and produce such a beautiful song.

Two thumbs up for the song and two thumbs up for Don!

PG Music News
Updated Song Titles Browser in Band-in-a-Box® 2020!

If you're looking for a Band-in-a-Box® Style in the feel of a familiar/popular song title, then the Song Titles Browser option in the Band-in-a-Box® StylePicker is the perfect feature for you!

With Band-in-a-Box® 2020, we’ve added 3,400 more song titles including requests from users, so there are now 14,000 titles to search from!

Just type in a familiar song title or artist name - once you have found the song, press the [OK - Find Matching Styles] button. This will take you to the StylePicker window with styles that best match the tempo, feel, and genre of the selected song title.

Didn't find the song you were searching for? Post your title request to our Wishlist forum: Songs to add to Band-in-a-Box Titles database - we think that the 3,400 new titles added with Version 2020 is proof that we're paying attention!

Learn more about the different features of the Band-in-a-Box® StylePicker here.

SongPicker Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac!

The Band-in-a-Box® SongPicker has been enhanced with our newest 2020 version!

The SongPicker now builds faster for large song lists (>30K and up to 60,000 songs). The [Song] button (or the [Open] button) now has 3 additional menu items to launch the SongPicker.

- Open SongPicker in Current Folder: This opens the SongPicker in the current folder of the last loaded song.
- Open SongPicker in Home Folder: This opens the SongPicker in the home folder, which is Applications/Band-in-a-Box/MySongs or as set in the SongPicker.
- Open SongPicker in Favorite Folder: This launches the Favorite Folder dialog which allows you to choose any previously used folder where a song was loaded from, and then open the SongPicker in that folder.

In the SongPicker, there is a new “Open in Home” option. If this is enabled, the SongPicker will always open in the home folder instead of the current folder when you press the default [Song] button to open the SongPicker.

Searching for songs matching a chord progression or melody has been enhanced. There are three new checkboxes: "Key must match exactly," "Chord Extension must match exactly", and "Time Signature must match."

Click here to jump to the SongPicker subject in our New Features video to learn more. (32:11)

(read more about this feature in our Band-in-a-Box 2020 for Mac Online Upgrade Manual.)

New "Feature Browser" in Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac

Band-in-a-Box® has so many features! We add 50 new ones with every version, so you may have forgotten all the different things that Band-in-a-Box® can do. Fortunately, with the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2020 we've solved this issue by added a Feature Browser!

How does it work? Access this feature by clicking on the [?] button on the main screen of the program or pressing the / Enter keys on the Chord Sheet. This dialog lists many features of the program and allows you to browse them, find the feature by text filter, read descriptions about the feature, find how to launch the feature, access to the online information or video about the feature, and do more.

Examples of a few situations where this feature is helpful:

-You know about a feature but don't know how to find it. Just type a part of the feature name and you'll see the hotkeys, menu, and toolbar info on how to launch it. For example, if you want to launch the Chord Builder but don’t know how to do it, type "builder" in the text filter, and you will quickly find the Chord Builder.
-You are exploring available features for Band-in-a-Box. For example, if you are a guitar player, type the word "guitar" and you'll see what's available.
-You prefer "one-stop-shopping" and would like to launch features from the same dialog.
-You are learning the program and like to browse or watch videos about topics you're interested in.
You can't remember hotkeys and want to review them.

Watch this new feature in action when you jump to the subject in our New Features video: 10:20 - New Feature - Feature Browser

(read more about this feature in our Band-in-a-Box 2020 for Mac Online Upgrade Manual.)
