Alan, I absolutely laughed my way through the whole song. Your sense of humor is only surpassed by your enormous imagination. Another stylistic gem. Merry Christmas friend, Tom

Thanks Sonny, glad you had a laugh.
I cannot compete with the more conventional Xmas songs, like yours, so I take on the role of Scrooge grin
I hope you and your family have a good Christmas

All the best

Hi Alyn.

A Christmas Classic!

If it goes viral it could be your pension for life.

Great video, too. Looking forward to more of those as you find your way around the program.

I enjoyed every minute of this. Didn't read any comments, lyrics or such so that when I hit Play, everything would be fresh and I'd get the complete Gibsonization experience.

I don't always get everything from my own knowledge base or on the first listen. That's when reading the lyrics and comments put me onto the deeper or hidden innuendo that scooted by to fast for someone like me that still lives in a rural, wooded area.

But, when I get it, I'm all in....

Your stuff is great. ...and refreshing.

Built-in Audio Chord Wizard Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2020!

Our Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Windows version includes some great enhancements to the Built-in Audio Chord Wizard!

-The built-in Audio Chord Wizard is now accessible from the [Audio Chord Wizard] button.
-The Audio Edit window now displays chords and tempos for each bar. They are shown when the Audio Chord Wizard mode is active so that you can see the tempo for each bar as you set the bar lines.
-When you start entering bar lines, the program automatically sets the tempo to the tempo of the first bar.
-Once the tempo of the first bar is set, the program automatically moves the location of the first bar of audio over so that the visual space of the count-in bars is visible.
-After you’ve added the bar lines, IF you adjust the first or second bar and the tempo of the first bar changes accordingly, the program automatically changes the tempo of the song to match.
-Multi-window display. This gives the Audio Chord Wizard a multi-window view so that you can see and edit both the Audio Edit window and the Chords Sheet at the same time. This display is best viewed with a small toolbar mode. This allows you to see the chords as they are being interpreted by the wizard.
-The Audio Chord Wizard can send the transcribed MIDI notes to the Soloist track for further analysis by the user (via Piano Roll or Notation window). Note that this is a "snapshot" view every 8th note of the pitches present, not an attempt at polyphonic transcription. To use this feature, enable the "MIDI to Soloist" check box.

Read more about these enhancements here, or jump to the New Feature - Audio Chord Wizard (ACW) Enhancements section of our New Features video here.
