Hi folks,

Some months ago I posted some songs here by a lady named Norma Kelly that were all created
in BIAB. Since then we have completed two more songs after heeding some very well informed
advice from some members of this forum.
The two new songs are titled "Knowing You'll Be There" and "Waltzing Matilda".
The first is based on a gospel song that Norma found on the net and really liked
the words to, and the second is a traditional Australian folk song based on a poem
written by Banjo Paterson back in the early settlement days in Australia.
Basically it is a story about an itinerant worker who steals a sheep from a farmer and gets caught.
The songs can be played at the link below and I would appreciate any feedback you may have.

Best regards,

Paul

Hi Brian,

Thank you for taking the time to listen. We have put a lot of time and musical
effort into the project to try and create a personal experience for the listener.
Norma only chooses songs that she feels have a story and I think that shows in
the way she sings the songs. She has been singing basically country, both modern and traditional, for over 25 years and always had a hankering to branch out, hence the,
if you like, jazz style songs in the project. What I find fascinating is her ability
to bend into a note and slide up and nail it....I guess you can take the girl out
of the country but you can't take the country out of the girl !!. Again thanks
for your comments and we have already started planning the next CD project.

Best regards,

Paul

This could very well be perfecton. All I'll add to that is that Norma has big time chops.

Very enjoyable.

Thanks to all you guys for taking the time to comment it is very much
appreciated by both Norma and myself. As you will all be aware this caper has
a very steep learning curve and there is always something new to learn
so we will go head down and bum up into the next project.

Best regards to all,

Paul

is what BIAB allows us all to do. Simply an amazing software

Norma-I love your voice-real country. I sometime write a country song or two. Was wondering if you
would be interested. I don't sing, but use BIAB to write both medody and lyrics.

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.
