I give praise, and also say HI, to all the posters of the songs on at least the 1st 2 pages. I am in the middle of a medical crisis and have listened to them on my 'phone but have been unable to comment until now, I have a day off!
I have written many words I want to convert to songs so hopefully I soon will be able to "gibsonise" the showcase grin again.

Keep them coming it is good therapy.

all the best

Alyn

Looking forward to hearing more "Gibsonisms" soon!

Alyn ,

I, too, have been absent for the better part of 8 or 9 months. Had a minor stroke followed by complications plus our son passed away and several other issues. So, I can relate toy our situation.

Will keep you in our prayers and look forward to more of your great music! Take care and get well.

I can relate as my wife just had breast cancer and a lot of my time was either driving her to the hospital for her morning treatments or spending a little more time with her in the afternoon. My listening and music making took a back seat.

I also wish you a quick recovery. As has been mentioned you are missed here!

You also are in our prayers.

Hi Alyn,

had no internet for five days. That's why I'm late.
I wish you a speedy recovery.

Scott (olemon)Thanks for the best wishes, Bob (90db) nice to know I've been missed, Al-David Wow my problems are less than yours were, hope you and Di are now recovering. gruverider thank you, MarioD I do hope your wife is recovering from her ordeal. floyd thanks, that would do me good, coffee black and strong, please! Richmac cheers mate, boehm no internet eh?, how did we manage before it all.Janice and Bud I now wake up every morning bright and breezy and looking forward to the day ahead. Which has kinda messed up my ambition to be a Blues Singer. tommyad Thanks, now to see if my guitar has missed me!

My blood pressure has dropped from 200/110 (the max) but I rattle from all the medication! No real circulatory cause was found, thankfully, seems severe long term stress was the cause and an investigation into this has started, which in itself will cause more stress mad but at least I may get answers to a massive medical misdiagnosis years ago. I still have no recordable blood pressure or pulse in my left arm from 8 years ago but a glimmer is there now!! so a mini improvement

Thanks to all
back to music YAY

Alyn

National Jukebox Day - Celebrate with Band-in-a-Box®!

Happy National Jukebox Day!

To celebrate, you could purchase a Jukebox... OR just access the Jukebox feature in Band-in-a-Box®!

What does the Band-in-a-Box® Jukebox do?

Using the directory you choose, the Band-in-a-Box® Jukebox will provide you with background music by continuously play the entire list of Band-in-a-Box® SGU files within that folder! There are many options for you to customize your Jukebox experience, including: Only Play song with melodies, Change Melody Instrument, Random order Playback, Audible Count-in, and more! Plus, the Jukebox will continue to play while you use other programs, providing your favorite music for continued background listening pleasure!

To learn more about the Jukebox feature in Band-in-a-Box®, check out Chapter 5 of our online manual, here. Mac too!

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.

Band-in-a-Box® is a great resource for drummers! Practice with an on-demand back-up band, learn from the Pro's with RealDrums notation (RealCharts, new with version 2019), MIDI drums notation, or play in the Drum Kit Window!

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Mac Build 315 Update Available!

Attention Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Mac users - a new FREE patch update (build 315) is available!
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: Loops dialog title bar displays wrong track name.
Fixed: Large patch map files are not completely loaded (were limited to 1985 patches).
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.
-musiclover
