This tune literally skyrocketed to #20 in a field of over 24k Blues-General tunes. It's my token tribute to my VA Nurse who goes unrecognized for the excellent care that he provides to we veterans. Thanks, Mike.

After listening, please rate me up. It will be a great encouragement to Mike LPN, Janelle RN, and the entire medical staff at Tulsa VAMC.

You'll hear our buddy, Brent Mason, jump in with his signature "Tele Snap" at about 1:00.

@Josie, thanks for listening and encouraging your Cyber Dad. Been extremely busy organizing material for my first ever professionally recorded album. Eventually, it will be available on iTunes. I'll gladly provide you with a courtesy copy.

Nina Gerber, guitarist for the late Kate Wolf (qv) for 14 years is donating some of her fabulous guitar work. That will definitely make the album worth hearing.

@Fred, I certainly appreciated your listening and encouraging comment.

Thanks, Bob.

Where were these wonderful opportunities 50 years ago when I chased after them? Perhaps the answer is: Band-In-A-Box. Thanks, Peter and crew!

I agree with everyone. This rocks!!! Is that Nina Gerber playing on this track? I've heard her backing some songwriters in my area. She's a great player. Great listen! Take care. Greg

Hi Don.

Oh, I DO love the blues and this is one of the best. Definitely has a 60s Brit feel to it. (Yardbirds?)

Very nicely crafted. Super choice of tracks and a great mix.

Thanks for sharing.

ROG.

No Greg, that's BIAB all the way! I used a Brent Mason RT and Brent followed my chord progression obediently. Great session player! lol

Nina hasn't even recorded her tracks yet. She's even buying studio time to record them. She's another treasure. Thanks, Nina. And, yes, she's a fabulous guitarist!

The album material is coming together quite well, hindered only by my very limited experience in such matters. Chorgle. (less than a chuckle).

Such a nice gesture to consider him worthy of this honor.

"Where were these wonderful opportunities 50 years ago when I chased after them."

Not every town has one but I live 3 miles from your answer. Opened 1966
it still cranks them out TR Studio I find myself 50 years later finally calling for a chance to book some time in the spring to run the old school rigs!

Not quite a Astoria but I'll enjoy it just the same.

Your never to old to dream!


DA...

That's quite a rocker going on Don. Just listened for the first time this morning and it is a #4 in Blues and #2 in Blues General. Way to go.

Not every day a Nurse gets a hit song named for them. You are truly one of the most gracious people here on the forum. I'm not so sure I know another who thinks so consistently and sincerely of others as you do.

And you write some pretty decent blues to boot.

Thanks for posting.

Charlie

Floyd; Scott709; Charlie; DA; R&AM; Jim; ROG; Noel; Greg; Bob; Fred; Josie B; et al, It’s always pleasant and encouraging to be complemented on one’s efforts and achievements but when coming from my songwriting peers, it’s especially exhilarating and re-energizing. It could not have happened were it not for the genius of Dr Gannon and crew. Thanks belong to them and the many musician friends that I have gleaned from and plagiarized over the years. Peter has me deeply involved in my sincere love of music that I had believed was lost to me forever.

J&B; Tommy, must have been writing when you were commenting. Didn't mean to exclude you, by any means! I've stolen (borrowed) from each of you equally. Bent Irishmen don't discriminate. lol

Fixed: In Chords Window, you could not enter held chords on Piano 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: 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: 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.

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.
