tis true, tis true...
but the good news is a man of your talent should have no problem using BIAB and RB to generate a top-notch original song!

Speaking of your talent, I just got back from listening to all the songs on your sound cloud page. You are without a doubt the absolute best lap steel player I've ever heard! I've owned a Sho-bud pedal steel and a Fender lap steel in the past, and knocked myself out trying to learn how to play them... they are not easy instruments to master

What you accomplish without pedals is phenomenal! My hat is off to you... you are a true professional

Great job, Mitch. Lovely arrangement, and if there is a reposting to someplace else , please let me know where they belong, as I also very much enjoy playing known melodies within creative arrangements. Very easy on the ears!

Hey thanks a ton guys ! BIAB has really let me do music again. Coming from a long career of live playing, now it's just me and the 'boys' in the box.

Pat, you are way too kind. I appreciate your very kind words and encouragement ! Sorry for not responing sooner, but I just figured out how to get emails on replies to threads and have not been back here.

As for original tunes, those days are long gone. I had my '15 minutes of fame' back in the early 80's with a band called 'Sneaker' (check out the Merv Griffin vid in my sig).

Google on Sneaker Mitch Crane for more stuff out there.

DrDuBose, thank you for your words as well. I will let you know if the site moves or the thread moves.

I love the C6 tuning ! What a great job you did on this song ! I bet you were a great live performer ! Have had a few friends that played Pedal Steel and I have played some slide licks on their rigs for grins before . I have owned a few E9 single necks ,but never played them full time on gigs just for a few songs a night. Also B bender Tele's ,even built my own before .

RealBand 2019 - A New Look!

Have you opened up your RealBand 2019 yet? You may notice that we've given it a fresh new look! In fact, there are now 3 different looks to RealBand.

See for yourself! Within the program, visit Options | Icon Set and choose from: Classic, Modern 1, or Modern 2.

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows - Choosing to Run 64-bit or 32-bit

We heard you! With the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows we've included the BRAND NEW 64-bit version of Band-in-a-Box®, which works well with the latest plugins and 64-bit OS features! Because not everyone has a 64-bit computer, we include both the 64-bit and 32-bit versions with your purchase - you choose which one to use!

By default, when you install your Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows the 32-bit version will run.

The steps to run the 64-bit version are simple! Just head to your "bb" folder and choose the "bbw64" icon - you'll notice that the Band-in-a-Box® "splash screen" will state "64-bit" as the program opens.
(and if you open the 32-bit version, the "splash screen" will state "32-bit")

Still not certain which version you're running? Within the program, go to Help | About Band-in-a-Box - it'll either state:

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2019 (604)
<--- the number in brackets is the build number - this will change as new patch updates are released
64 bit application

or:

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2019 (604)
<--- the number in brackets is the build number - this will change as new patch updates are released
32 bit application

We hope everyone who can is enjoying their Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit version for Windows!
