Forest Road was the main road leading into Sydney from where we lived in earlier days. We used to say it would take us anywhere in Australia (technically it probably could). This however is fictitious.

Hi Peter,
I sure like this one! The song did not lead me to nowhere...I liked all the instruments and especially your guitar playing. The sax was a great touch! Great job!

Great song
Beautiful sound

I like your solo's too

About the voice: go listen to some Bob Dylan's album as John Wesley Harding and you'll notice a great similarity

Got a nice 50's groove. Bump the vox a few db and it'll set better.


A good time party song. nice.

That's a fun groove. Your playing and the sax worked together very well. Like a couple of guys who've been playing together for a while. Hey, bring that vocal up a bit...it sounded great!

Cool production.

Hi Peter.

A great track that really drives along.

Great choice of instruments and excellent guitar work and vocals.

Like Alyn, I thought some of the sax's lower notes were a bit hot and I would have liked a bit more reverb on the sax generally to push it further away - it was a bit up-front compared to the vocals and guitar.

Really enjoyed it.

ROG.

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

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.
