Hi Everyone.

It's been a while since I posted a song, so here's a bit of light-hearted nonsense and our first post with a video. The drums, banjo and sax are RTs and the rest is me. It's all recorded in RealBand and mixed and mastered in PowerTracks.
Video editing is done in Serif Movie Plus.

PLAY GUITAR - GET RICH

Sometimes it kind of seems
Like I'm living my life in some sort of dream
I gotta wake up
I'm knocking on the door but there's no one there
I'd like to kick it right in but I'm never gonna dare
I gotta shape up
Won't some one hear my plea
I'm down on the ground on my bended knee
I need some dough and I need it fast
I've got a little bit of money but it's never gonna last.

I'll buy a guitar and then learn to play
I've seen this book called "Play in a Day"
It won't take long
Got this idea about starting a band
Gonna play Rock & Roll, do one night stands
And write a hit song
Write a big hit, how hard can it be
Play it all day on the MTV
Pay me lots of money and make me a star
Buy a big house and drive a fast car
And buy a saxophone

You've gotta have a plan you've got to work it out
You don't get a second chance it's what it's all about
You gotta take it
Never even start to look at second best
Just pick up number one, forget about the rest
You've got to make it
Everybody knows it's just a dream
It's never gonna work it's a stupid scheme
I don't care what people say
Pick up my guitar and begin to play
Something like this.

Many thanks to anyone who has time to listen.

ROG.

there have been some really top notch songs posted to the user showcase in the past few weeks, but for sheer "WHOAH! THAT WAS FUN!" impact, I don't think any of them came close to this!!

I loved every aspect of it... I even laughed out loud when the sax player started lying on his back... exactly what you'd expect from the imaginary person singing the song.

Right from the beginning it reminded me of Tom Petty's "INTO THE GREAT WIDE OPEN"

How did you make that video??? That was AWESOME!! I liked it so much I want to make that exact same video and apply to a different song!

And apart from the clever video, the song itself really ROCKED! I tapped my foot from start to finish! (but the video really did add a lot)

Final summary, this project reinforced what I already suspected: "Rog.. you ain't right!" LOL! (just the way we like ya!)
You are a very creative and intelligent man,and it shows in everything you do. Thanks for posting!

Signed,

"A Rebel Without A Clue"

Cool, fun song!! A little Dylan/Petty mixture with a "money for nothin' and chicks for free" sentiment. And, the video put it over the top!! Loved the guitar solo too!! I miss the days of the guitar heroes. Only John Mayer plays solos these days. Great stuff Rog!! Take care. Greg

Hi ROG
That is simply awesome! Do you have to practice that Bob Dylan voice? What a great idea for the video. I love it love it!

Howdy Rog,

Pat said it all from our perspective. We are HUGE Petty fans and, man, this one is in that wheelhouse. We're not implying imitation at all....just the Petty Vibe, if you will.

The productions sounds nailed on our monitors. Everything sits where, IMO, it needs to me. Just a great listen from all angles -- production, arrangement, instrumentation, RT use, vocals and lyric. BTW, some folks' results may vary but we really liked the banjo.

Kudos!!

J&B

Rog,

That was wonderful, and of course very creative.

Still on the floor with the line "buy a saxophone" to introduce the sax solo.

As our friend Russ would say . . . good on you man!

Later

ROG,

You know I've always been a big fan of your singing voice...Great to hear it again! This one goes straight to the top of the list.

How did you do the opening cymbal? Nice touch!

Great mix. Everything sounds good - and right in the slot. Nice bass!
Those far-off ooohs are nicely done. The sax solo is about the best I've heard in a rock song (What RT was that???). Terrific guitar solo. It sings!

Good use of the banjo.

Good write (yes, the saxophone line made me laugh every time I played this). Cool video.

Awesome. Delightful. A standing O.

Yeah..... what they said ^^^^^

Cool song and video too.

It has a Dire Straits Money for nothing vibe to me.... in places.... in the phrasing of the lead on the intro especially

sweet tone on the guitar.

I have a buddy who played guitar in a band we were in back in the day.... he came home one day with a sax.... he stuck with it, through all the hours upon hours of practice and can play that thing pretty nicely now.

Loved the rolling banjo in the background of a rock and roll song. cool move.

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: 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: 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.

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.
