That's a cool progression. I could hear myself playing and jamming along to this. Ripping it up one side and down the other.


BB was certainly a major influence on thousands of guitarists. That includes dozens of the big name groups and pickers.... from Clapton to the Beatles, the Who and countless others.

He was influential in the early years of this humble guitar player as well.

Mike, love tha transition from the guitar to that that wailing sax. The tone sounded very similar. The chord progression is real nice. Just enough different with the 2 sections using a minor then a major to make it unique and interesting. I find that a challenge in the blues realm to get it out of the ordinary and make it something new. BB was really great. The most unique thing about him was that he never played and sang at the same time. It was one or the other. A nice tribute, Tom

"The Thrill Is Gone" for sure. We have listened to him
for decades.

Thanks for producing this wonderful tribute.

GREAT mix!

We much enjoyed it.

A BIG +1

Great transition from axe to sax!

Mike, this is really a great tribute. You always do a great job of placing the Realtracks in such a way that sounds cohesively real. Thanks for sharing this.

Really cool tune Mike!! I was bummed to hear of his passing. A patient of mine saw him play last Summer I believe, in the south where he lived (don't remember which state). They said he had dementia but could still play that axe. Lucille will never find anyone to take his place. I heard that years ago he was asked if he had any advice for young guitar players starting out. He replied, "Don't be afraid to play a whole note". Always loved that story. Thanks for posting. Take care. Greg

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.
