The Cantina

This was a five minuet write.
Comments invited.
Rob

https://soundcloud.com/ironbarkbob/the-cantina

Down in the Cantina sunlight bathes the walls.
Where the desert cactus sprawls In the Cantina.
Mariachi music plays you could laze away your days.
Just forget the city haze.In the Cantina.

Oh man you should have see her.
I was sitting nearer.
Holding my Margarita in the Cantina.

Bridge

Down in the Cantina where the kiotes call to me.
There's flamenco on the breeze in the Cantina.
Now I'm in the airport cue not a cactus in my view.
I'm sorry to be leaving the Cantina.

Oh man you should have see her.
I was sitting nearer.
Holding my Margarita in the Cantina.

Though my Margaritas with me she traveling duty free.
I'm taking her away from the Cantina.
Far well to those desert sands I've come away a different man
Yes I know I'll always miss the Cantina.

Oh man you should have see her.
I was sitting nearer.
Holding my margarita in the Cantina.

Hi Bob

you also have the voice like Johnny Cash!!

The song remember me the Bob Dylan's style in the Lp
"Pat Garret & Billy the kid" (cantina theme)

Great work.

Hello.

Hi Bob. Nice relaxed song there.
Would have taken me a week at least!
Your voice and style always make me think of Marty Robbins.
Cheers.

Sometimes the best ones just flow!! This has a really pleasant feel. Arrangement works perfect, and you nailed the vocal. Cool song!! Take care. Greg

Great to have something with a very unique South American/Mexican feel. Really worked nice.

Hello Trevor.
I started this song with one individual track at a time.
The result was what you hear.
Normally I would steer away from this genre,thought it was worth the experiment.

Rob.

Rob,

Good song for a quick write.
You should now be known as speedy gonzales/rob4580 grin

Your voice really suits that style of music.

thoroughly enjoyed

Alyn

Nice southwestern Marty Robbins groove and sound
you have going here. Very cool and vivid imagery
in the lyric. I do have to say that had I read the
lyric before listening I wouldn't have known that a
kiote was a coyote smile The mix sounds just right
on the monitors for my ears and taste. You definitely
have a good feel for different genres. Fun isn't it?!

Very nice listen!!

J&B

PS: Five minutes? It takes me about that
long to remember my PG Music password.

Nice song Rob!

When you say this took 5 minutes, that doesn't include the time it took to write the lyrics, does it?

But, whether it does or not, the ability to crank out good songs quickly is a pretty good indication of your comfort level with the software, and a pretty good testimony to BIAB as a rapid development system!

On top of all the things I always like about your songs (your voice in particular) I liked the way you wrote the lyrics to suggest that Margarita might be a woman instead of a drink. Every time you mention "Margarita" the context supports both interpretations. I think that sort of thing adds a lot to any song.

The song is straight-forward, and also a little bit obscure. It Keeps the audience wondering if you might mean something besides what you appear to be saying. wink

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.
