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 .

Summary of Changes in Build 2:
Fixed: Sometimes the position of the VST/DX plugs window (even if not visible) would prevent a drop, such as into the drop station, from occurring.

Fixed: In Chords Window, you could not enter held chords on Piano track.
Fixed: LeadSheet might not display tied notes on the last bar of a track.
Fixed: Pressing "M" key in Editable Notation to insert a new note at the current time location on the Staff was inserting a duplicate note rather than inserting it above an existing note.
Fixed: Loading in a MusicXML file could result in MIDI notes of zero instead of the currect MIDI notes.
Fixed: Dragging a file into the tracks window didn't always result in the effects slot for the track being setup properly for the file type dragged in.
Fixed: When inserting hard rest, and answering Yes to question about removing notes for the peg, it would remove notes from both clefs instead of the clef that the rest was inserted on.
Fixed: Potential access violation when deleting a note in staff window.

Fixed: Jukebox not playing the playlist in correct order in certain situations involving stopping/restarting, etc.

Fixed: Hammer ons, pull offs, and slides are now being saved to MusicXML files.
Fixed: Exceptionally jittery timing indicator in the notation window during playback compared to older versions of RealBand.

Fixed: Potential access violation if song has micro-pegs and multiple notes on a peg.
Fixed: Accidental element that specified whether a note was displayed as sharp/flat wasn't eing saved to XML, even though the correct pitch of the note itself was saved.
