I wasn't able to drive to His Memorial due to heart problems today, so I uploaded a blues tune dedicated to Bugs Henderson. If you played in Dallas and were asked to play with Bugs you knew you had arrived. The first time I played with him, I was playing at another club when the owner said I had a call. They wanted to know if I would come play harmonica with Bugs opening up for John Mayall, and it was 20 minutes till they went on. I dragged raced there and it was an incredible experience I'll always remember. Wish I still had the breath to play harp.
He was the nicest person I ever met!

He was a soulful player. I can hear the attitude in his tone! Of course, with a B3 behind you, one cannot help but bring the attitude!

Sounds like he used his fingers instead of a pick. Very nice. Wish I could have met him.

Tommy,

Great tribute to a great musician! Bugs will be missed. I always enjoy your playing, Cuz! Hope you are feeling better. And like you said, I wish you still had the wind to play the harp!

Keep up the good work!

Steve

Thanks Everybody for listening! Bugs was a Guitar Genius, I was amazed he would ever ask me to play on the same stage! JBlatz are you JMac? Just a wild guess! I love KNON, can't find Blues like they play anywhere else even for money!

Uncommon RealTracks Instruments for Band-in-a-Box®

Today is Uncommon Instrument Awareness Day.

Examples of "uncommon instruments" include anything from Spoons to the Wheelharp to the Singing Ringing Tree, and more!
(there's probably more instruments out there that we DON'T know than we DO know)

Although our RealTracks collection doesn't include many 'uncommon instruments', we do offer some pretty unique choices!

On top of the usual varieties we offer for Piano, Guitar, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet, Bass, Tuba, Trumpet, Trombone, and more - our RealTracks library also offers a nice selection of Shakuhachi and Kalimba - there's even a Koto RealTrack included in Set 212!

Kalimba: RealTracks Set 271
Koto: RealTracks Set 212
Shakuhachi: RealTracks Sets 193 & 212

What's the most surprising RealTrack Instrument that you've come across?

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 Mac Update Ready!

Just because Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac is here doesn't mean we've forgotten our 2019 users!

If you're still using Band-in-a-Box® 2019, make sure you download the latest patch update (b324) for an updated splash screen (macOS 10.12 and 10.13 users), smoother Song Titles dialog, access to your (purchased) RealTracks Set 328, and we've corrected the reported issue with opening songs from older versions of Band-in-a-Box in the 2019 version.

Review - Loops-with-Style PAK 2 for Band-in-a-Box® 2020

"Dr. Dave" Walker is at it again! You may remember his recent reviews of both Band-in-a-Box 2020 for Mac and Xtra Styles PAK 9 - now he has something to say about our Loops-with-Style PAK 2 - check it out: Click here to read...

With money being tight for most musicians, this is a wonderful gift for those on a limited budget. At $29, it offers months and years of fun and experimentation, bringing many ideas to fruition as songs with enough variation so that your audience doesn’t jump to "aw, that's a computer!" while still keeping the power of the software in your hands.
-"Dr. Dave" Walker

Thank you again Dr. Dave for the great review!

My New Favorite Thing - Extra Style PAK #9 with Loop Pack #2

I set up an eight bar progression with some simple pushes, shots, holds, and rests for reference. Then I started auditioning styles--Three hours later, I am invigorated, inspired, and just plain smiling big. Really CHOICE! From "down to earth" to eclectic, this is a really fun pak.

Great job, folks!
