I can't find Avalina's name in the list of forum users, but I want to say "good job!"

Hopefully Avalina will get the message one way or another...

That's cool. Now PGMusic should put some BIAB background music (original of course) to it and feature it on FB and YT.

The message is spot on.

Everybody loves comics.

Excellent!

"Band-in-a-Box - play it your way" is an exceptional catch phrase. PGMusic might want to consider this.

Wonderful way to deliver a message.

Thanks EVERYONE! Glad you liked it! Yes, without a shadow of doubt the slogan should be taken on by BIAB (but then I would say that wouldn't I?) LOL!!

Added music? Why not? If anyone wants a copy of the comic jpg/png let me know...

Learn More About the Redesigned Band-in-a-Box® SongPicker!

Wow - how much do you LOVE the redesigned SongPicker in Band-in-a-Box® 2019?!

The SongPicker within Band-in-a-Box® accesses the folder of your choosing for easy opening of all your favorite songs, or song files purchased from a third party or shared by a friend, member of your band, etc.

Now, with this redesigned feature, you can view the chord progression for your selected song without having to open it in Band-in-a-Box® and can copy the information from this window right into a TXT file!

The new progress bar is a great visual aid when you're updating the folder - for instance, if you load the ENTIRE Band-in-a-Box® folder, that's over 15,000 songs - and it's nice to see the progress/confirmation on screen. Not that you'll be waiting long - since the SongPicker now builds lists faster!

Plus, there's so many filters added - searching for the song you want has never been easier!

Click here for a detailed write up on this redesigned feature, or watch the Video - SongPicker Overview.
