Thursday night, bought a new (old) guitar. A Martin EMP-1. It was number 63 of 262 made.
I looked up Psalm 63 and was inspired . . .

Worked the chord sheet out - got the backing tracks down and then singer just happened to be in town and came by . . . we laid some scratch vocals Friday afternoon to see if song worked like I saw it in my head and on guitar . . .


the style is _RCKWLZD.sty Rock Waltz 2/Dirty Elect Gui

the lead is acoustic guitar from leads - can't remember which one . . . I re-amped it and used it for lead...

the beginning is my new martin DI . . . since scratch I didn't worry about using mic . . .

This is the song:

https://soundcloud.com/user-812843012/psalm-63-your-grace-is-better-than-life

Psalm 63 (You grace is better than life)

I think your recent posts and the work you are producing is very inspirational and fresh. I thought it to be unique that a used martin was your inspiration for the song.

Well produced with great vocals and arrangement.

+1 to that. Interesting history on those type guitars... did you know someone who worked for Martin? or was this just "found somewhere"?

Thanks Floyd!

Here is the story . . . (I'll try to keep it short)

I'm a drummer . . . I managed and produced a band I put together in the 80's and got us signed to major label.

That lifestyle can get real ugly and I got out of music . . . (long story - fast forward a decade +) . . .

got talked into playing for church when a persistent worship pastor said: you have played for the other side, have you ever thought about serving God with your talent?

Made me think . . .

I ended up starting a successful Worship Music Open Mic . . . a place where worship leaders could kind of let their hair down and sing and worship different than they do on Saturday or Sunday . . .

After a year, that became more about promotion and less about worship so I left that . . .

I had been writing songs for a couple of years so I bought a Fretlight guitar from Sweetwater . . .

LOVED the concept of a lighted fret board to learn different phrasings etc . . .

First one got here and 5 fret were DEAD! I had never bought a guitar on-line . . . Sweetwater was good to their name and took it back and sent a new one . . .

Frets dead on it too . . . truss rod adjustments are different in these guitars and if over done will separate the fretboard from the neck . . .

Called sweetwater and they sent me to local repair shop and said they would pay . . . I love Sweetwater!

Long story short, I gave Sweetwater their assessment and they had me send it back and refunded my money . . . no problems! Class company to deal with - I buy most of my stuff there.

I went to local guitar store to try out "better" guitars . . .

Breedloves were hard to play . . . required too much effort . .

I loved the necks of the Martins and how fast they were . . .I tried a couple but they were real dark . . . top end seemed to be lacking

I tried some Taylors . . . they had the top end but lacked the bottom end of the Martins . . .

Tried an Alex Lifeson PRS private stock and almost had a heart attack at the price . . . loved the thin body though!

Decided, maybe in my price range I would not get what I was looking for so I decided to go used . . .


I started looking on ebay and craigslist . . .

I saw an add for the EMP-1 on craigslist. Never heard of it so I looked up the history . . . and the body was THIN!

I called the guy who happened to be a worship pastor for his church . . .

Met with him and bought guitar . . .

that is short story crazy

Very cool song!! I love the clean Queen-style harmonies followed by the distorted rock sound. Guitar solo is perfect for the song. Very creative and interesting music! Take care. Greg

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.
