This time a typical R & AM song, we think.... I agree, and that's a good thing!! Nicely done. A pleasant, catchy tune with a great arrangement, great vocal, and quality production. What's not to like? Oh Yeah, and the obligatory very cool video accompaniment. Very cool!! Take care. Greg

wow, you two are just so INNOVATIVE in everything that you do!

Your chord progressions always throw me a curve by going somewhere I wasn't expecting..
you have real melodies in your songs, and they're always unique and memorable...
you have really interesting transitions between sections of your songs...
Your harmonies always rock...
you are really REALLY good at making real tracks sound like live performances!
The solo in this song sounds like you added some kind of effect to a slide guitar RT... or was that the original RT unaltered? (either way, I really liked that as a solo)

This song made me thing of Fleetwood Mac at several places.

Now, the video was impressive for completely different reasons:
The special effects, animations and transitions you apply are very tasteful and they really add visual interest. And the clips themselves are spectacular! Each of them is visually striking on its own, but when you put them all together in the context of a song, the whole package is so polished that it just SHINES!

Once again, kudos to both of you... you each add so much to your projects, you really make an uncommonly talented and productive team!

I really liked this a lot. One of my new favs of yours. I love that acoustic rock vibe - and I really liked the lyrics and the chord changes too. Vocals/harmonies on the money. Cool video too. I just wish I could be as prolific as you two...it's inspiring.

This is probably your best to date, but it is hard to judge as all of your songs sound like they come from a pro studio!

I also liked the acoustic rock vibe in this one and your vocals and harmonies are spot on.

Greg, Charlie, Josie, Mario, Guenter, Floyd, Mario, Fred and Dani....
thanks a lot for all your positive comments!

Pat: you heard it right! Rob had FleetwoodMac's "I don't wanna know" in mind, when composing this song.
The used resonator guitar has some effects added, EQ (we cut some high frequencies) and delay.

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows was released in December 2018, and included many new features and enhancements - like the enhancements we made to our Notation window!

These include:
-Pressing the space bar plays the song from the current location.
-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.
-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.
-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.
-In the Notation Windows Options dialog, the clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
-The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
-You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
-A new track type (Drums) is available for the Melody and Soloist tracks.
-Holding down the Ctrl key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
-There's a keystroke entry 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.
-A new button in the Print Options dialog lets you quickly print a "chords only" fake sheet. You can also access this from the right-click menu on the Chord Sheet.
-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.


There's detailed information on our 2019 notation enhancements here: Band-in-a-Box® 2019 New Feature - Notation Enhancements

Jump to the Notation topic in our Band-in-a-Box® 2019 new features video.

Review details and download here

Summary of changes for build 315 (Nov 15, 2019):

Fixed: Exporting MusicXML files was not working.
Fixed: When using "Auto-Hand split Piano track" feature, exported MIDI files contain wrong note durations on the Piano track.
Fixed: Note-based lyrics were not included when exporting MIDI files.
Fixed: User should be prompted to save their song when exiting, if they had added or removed plugins.
Fixed: The Record Audio dialog always says “Track type is Stereo” even if the track type is mono.
Fixed: The [Audio Options…] button in the Record Audio dialog was launching the Audio Devices dialog instead of the Audio Settings dialog.

Fixed: Notation context menu > Edit Section Text… did not do anything.
Fixed: Notation context menu > Insert Section Text… did not do anything.

My Favorite Things - Nudge Chords in Band-in-a-Box®

Love this time saving feature.

Ever fill in the chordsheet fully or for part of song, and then discover you want to add or take away an extra beat or more somewhere in the chordsheet.

Nudge chords (melody) from the Edit Menu is your friend here, the dialog will give you all the options either to remove or add beats where its needed.

Love it.
