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.

Glad you enjoyed the Gibson Christmas

#TBT Band-in-a-Box Finds!

I don't know about everyone here, but now that I've settled in to our "new normal" I've taken to rearranging and dusting off many things in order to keep busy and productive!

I'm picking up old hobbies, picking up clutter around the house, and as it turns out - finding forgotten picks!

We snagged these gems many, many, many years ago after The NAMM Show one winter. Check out the old Band-in-a-Box logo! Click here...

Have any of you come across something nostalgic like this these days? Let's see it!

#TipTuesday - Style Changes in Band-in-a-Box®

Head to our Tips & Tricks forum to read what other Band-in-a-Box users have discovered about the program!

Like mrgeeze's recent post Style Changes within a song.. another great BIAB feature.

...My arrangement's bass Real Track was 397 (bass Acoustic Paul).
Solid but not really what I wanted for a solo.

I hit the F5 key to bring up bar setting and poked around till i found the Real Tracks command button in the upper right.
Clicked on that & quickly change the bass to 452 (Soloist (bluesy).
12 bars later I did the same and switched it back to 397.

The results were excellent...
