My hand has now recovered very well but I still can't come up with any new music of my own. SO - Whilst my own musical block continues, here is a pretty little guitar waltz written by my friend Ernie Lamprell, to tide me over, and used with his permission.

Hi Nobilis - thank you for listening and your kind comment. Serene indeed!
Hi Floyd - glad you enjoyed it. Quite different to USA style pickin'.Very "scaley" in concept, it made it easy to put harmonies to it. Sad! -Duffys closed until the 25th! We'll starve!! Taking loads of sunscreen, my friend - NoAd 30.
Hi Dani, I can just see you smooch dancing with your new girlfriend to this! lol!
Hi Josie - thank you for being so kind. I'm not on these boards much these days for all sorts of reasons and I probably have missed lots of your lovely music and songs.
Hi Charlie - thank you for taking the time to listen.
cheers

Beautiful tone on this one Ian. Love it.

As for the Island, try the Rod and Reel Pier Restaurant at the North end of the island.

875 N Shore Dr
Anna Maria, FL

http://www.urbanspoon.com/r/30/1281006/restaurant/Tampa-Bay/Rod-Reel-Pier-Anna-Maria


If you fish, get some large live shrimp and try for snook. They are huge down there, and the season is open now.


Regards,

Bob

Hi Bob - glad you liked the sound.
Will try Rod n Reel Pier for sure. Last time (Sept/Oct 2012) we snacked at the City Pier. I believe it has undergone some work on the ouerhgead since. Don't fish but like to eat it. Lol!
Hi Guenter - thank you for your kind feedback. The tune has a sort of Music Box feel into it.
Cheers
Ian

The Rod and Reel is our favorite breakfast place.

"eat here" is an interesting place for dinner.

The Waterfront restaurant is excellent - nice selection of brews, there, too...

This is just beautiful!

Excellent lead and harmonies, anything more complicated would have ruined the mood IMHO. Very nice guitar tone also.

Outstanding! Lead, harmony, choice of RT's and the mix. A cool showcase of what a talented musician can do with RT support. Enjoyed it.

Hi Floyd
Great info. Did you know Rod & Reel Pier has a streaming live webcam on it? We tune in most days. We followed the rebuilding of the Pierhead building (where the Restaurant is) over the Winter and be sure we'll do breakfast there.
Hi Mario,thanks for the kind feedback. Its pretty much the KISS principle here - more would have got in the way, I think.
Hi Janice and Bud - The base mid style was just right and all it needed was the two RTs to give it that Musical Box feel and a change to the Hi-Q midi guitar as the one in the Style was a bit clunky sounding. Glad you enjoyed it friends.
cheers
ian

Wow Ian,

This is beautiful! Produced with subtlety.
The harmonies on the lead guitar work magically.

Really pretty!!! Guitar playing is sweet, as is the composition! I wasn't aware of your "block" but if it's the standard writer's block, my advice is: Just do anything. Sometimes people get trapped by the last project, or the last one they felt good about. I think each song is just a step along the journey, and it gets you to the next one. That said, I suffer with the same issues myself at times and am not great at taking my own advice. Take care. Greg

Hi Greg
thank you for the encouragement. I think the block was caused by being unable to play for a while due to a badly burned hand and cut. Couldnt touch the guitar. I just kinda lost the momentum.
Hopefully I'll get some ideas on vacation.
Best to you, my friend.
Ian

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:
