Here's a tune I wrote and created using Band In A Box way back in 2003 I think. This was back before I had any real tracks - so all of it is MIDI except for the tele guitar sounds I played on a first generation Line6 Variax. It's kind of a silly song, but was fun to pull together with the BIAB tools. It's been so long ago I have no remembrance of the style I used. I know I actually manually sequenced the ending using an old program called Digital Orchestrator Pro that Voyetra used to sell. Hope someone get a kick from hearing this one. Hanging On By the Pinky Toe (of the One Foot That I Don't Have In The Grave)

Clever lyrics throughout!

I liked the lively delivery and your guitar playing is also fun!

Was the cloudy peak in the middle of the video taken from the lookout on Mt Mitchell ?

Hey Pat - You got it right. Great eye - catching Mt. Mitchell view in that quick video segment. For that video I just threw a bunch of my YouTube postings (along with some Digital Juice royalty-free clips) together quickly to make something quirky and crazy to go along with the song. I had been up on Mt. Mitchell to talk about my great, great, great, great grandfather Elisha Mitchell for a documentary I was trying to produce. So I just threw that clip in. Thanks for your comment.

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows was released in December 2018, and included many new features and enhancements - like the enhancements we made to our Notation window!

These include:
-Pressing the space bar plays the song from the current location.
-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.
-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.
-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 it.
-In the Notation Windows Options dialog, the clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
-The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
-You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
-A new track type (Drums) is available for the Melody and Soloist tracks.
-Holding down the Ctrl key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
-There's a keystroke entry 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.
-A new button in the Print Options dialog lets you quickly print a "chords only" fake sheet. You can also access this from the right-click menu on the Chord Sheet.
-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.


There's detailed information on our 2019 notation enhancements here: Band-in-a-Box® 2019 New Feature - Notation Enhancements

My Favorite Things - Nudge Chords in Band-in-a-Box®

Love this time saving feature.

Ever fill in the chordsheet fully or for part of song, and then discover you want to add or take away an extra beat or more somewhere in the chordsheet.

Nudge chords (melody) from the Edit Menu is your friend here, the dialog will give you all the options either to remove or add beats where its needed.

Love it.
