You wonderful friends were so kind in reviewing Gigi's Fiddle Waltz that I decided to post Isla's Waltz with PSG.

Isla is huge in Country Music in Ireland and tours worldwide. It's a thrill to have a celebrity of Isla's magnitude use one of my compositions. Her band plays it during audience transitions at her concerts (not on her set list).

Isla has 11 Gold and 3 Platinum Albums.

Congrats, Don! That's impressive company you keep:)

You've got some nice surprises in this as that steel takes a few beats to get where progression is going, if you know what I mean.

Very enjoyable, excellent mix, Amigo.

Scotty,

I hesitate to "namedrop" the countless famed artists in my life but, regrettably, I've outlived most of them.

You and my many PG Music friends are more important to me currently. The two Josies are like my own daughters. You and Danny are my sons.

Apparently, I have an intrinsic capacity to love and it comes back to me tenfold.

Pat Marr once asked how I know all of these successful artists. My reply...reach out to them! Under the glitter and facade you'll often discover a wonderful and generous human being in need of a sincere, caring friend unintimidated by "star" status and equally interested in "real" friendship.

Really pretty tune!! My closest thing to a brush with greatness is that I went to school with Adam Duritz of Counting Crows. He was in my fraternity and we played together at the Greek Week Talent Show. He went on to the big time and I'm still waiting for my break. This is really nice work! Take care. Greg

Don, I am always in when there's steel. Nice job putting this together. I'm sure it took a lot of editing to get it right. Sounds good. Tom

I jammed with Bob Dylan in HS and at house/keg parties. To date I've been unable to penetrate his security to reminisce with him.

I'm with Tom here. PSG is hard to beat and is the sweetest sound when done right. You did good on this one.

based on the caliber of showcase tunes lately, I'm thinking that my brush with greatness will come from this forum!

Another good one Don! Keep 'em coming!

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.
