Thanks to Josie who was listening to my tracks over at Reverbnation, she reminded me of a total BIAB tune that I did which is a remix of an acoustic tune I do live. I wrote the song just because. People kept saying my tunes were dark so I figured I'd lighten it up and wrote "Big Wad o Gum"

388 Bass Electric Metal
629 Guitar Electric Rhythm PopAmericanDirty
RealDrums=NashvilleEven8^6
632 Guitar, Electric Rhythm PopAmericanMuted
406 Guitar Acoustic, Strumming
422 Guitar, Electric Soloist, Blues

Again, I sliced up the Soloist Blues Track to create a solo better suited to the feel of the tune (more space and dynamics) Created a few new chops as well smile

Enjoy!

I guess one can find inspiration for a song in anything.....

funny song and a reminder to dispose of your gum properly, and that doesn't mean spitting it out in a parking lot on a hot day.


Musically, the vocals sound really good. The tempo seems a bit too fast for the guitar solo style that you used.

Slow it down, change the style to blues and sing about that nasty wad stuck to your foot.....

Funny write!

A good vocal and good overall mix with a bunch of good solo licks throughout.

Funny and clever. Good job on the splicing. I know how tedious that it is. Often takes me parts of 12-15 regens to get it "right."

The vocal really works and is well featured on the tune. I can hear it wafting through the air in a Wally Mart parking lot. smile

Thanks for the thoughts!

I laughed when I first read your post. This tune IS slowed down ;-D But, your point is well taken.

Thanks again for the input!

Hi Greg! Interesting story: One time after a gig, while breaking down, a gentleman came up to me and began to praise "Big Wad O Gum" as a profound, deep song, and how it meant so much to him. He was serious as well. He was talking about symbolism and more. Not dark, but, definitely something more than what I intended. ;-)

Appreciate the thoughts!

Sounds like something Talking Heads would do and even the vocals are in a similar style. I enjoyed that.
good fun song,

Hey Mike,

Is there anyone who can't relate to this? I doubt it! Funny and entertaining. That bass line just kept driving this one home! Nicer work!!!!

Summary of Changes in Build 2:
Fixed: Sometimes the position of the VST/DX plugs window (even if not visible) would prevent a drop, such as into the drop station, from occurring.

Fixed: In Chords Window, you could not enter held chords on Piano track.
Fixed: LeadSheet might not display tied notes on the last bar of a track.
Fixed: Pressing "M" key in Editable Notation to insert a new note at the current time location on the Staff was inserting a duplicate note rather than inserting it above an existing note.
Fixed: Loading in a MusicXML file could result in MIDI notes of zero instead of the currect MIDI notes.
Fixed: Dragging a file into the tracks window didn't always result in the effects slot for the track being setup properly for the file type dragged in.
Fixed: When inserting hard rest, and answering Yes to question about removing notes for the peg, it would remove notes from both clefs instead of the clef that the rest was inserted on.
Fixed: Potential access violation when deleting a note in staff window.
Fixed: Potential jukebox access violation if there were songs with the entire path of the filename being 256 characters or greater loaded into jukebox.
Fixed: Jukebox not playing the playlist in correct order in certain situations involving stopping/restarting, etc.
Fixed: When loading in a MusicXML file that has a specific guitar fretboard defined that matches one of our fretboards, the guitar tablature type will now be set for the notation.

Fixed: Hammer ons, pull offs, and slides are now being saved to MusicXML files.
Fixed: Exceptionally jittery timing indicator in the notation window during playback compared to older versions of RealBand.
Fixed: If the start of a generated section of a song didn't have a chord entered at the beginning of the section, then it could default to a C major chord instead of the most recent chord prior to the section.
Fixed: Potential access violation if song has micro-pegs and multiple notes on a peg.
Fixed: Accidental element that specified whether a note was displayed as sharp/flat wasn't eing saved to XML, even though the correct pitch of the note itself was saved.

All RealBand 2019 for Windows customers can download the latest FREE patch update (build 5) here.

Summary of Changes in Build 5 (Oct 10)
Fixed: Sometimes the position of the VST/DX plugs window (even if not visible) would prevent a drop, such as into the drop station, from occurring.

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit for macOS Catalina

With Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit for Mac we added Drum Notation Support, and we didn't stop there! Other Notation Enhancements added in this new version are:

-A new track type (Drums) is 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 it.
-Holding down the control key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
-In the Notation Window Options dialog, the clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
-Notation is much clearer, not jagged, on retina screens.
-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 is a keystroke entry mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, M to enter a third note, up/down cursor to change the pitch of the highlighted note, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
-You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
