We just got back from our vacation/holiday yesterday and today I had the coming home blues. So I turned on my computer, generated some RealTrack BiaB backing tracks and just jammed away; first take on the lead part. The total time on this one is about one hour!

The guitar tone is my Kramer KnightRider through the free Amplitude 3 preset “Blue Sky”. The only change I made was to add the Diode Overdrive prior to the delay.

The BiaB style was _mondor-slow sw8 blues w/organ. I just took what Biab gave me and ran with it.

So here is I'm Blue Today warts and all. I hope you like it for what it is.

Ain't Amplitube a great companion to BIAB?

Certain parts of this reminded me of Crosby Stills Nash and Young but I can't recall which song.

Sounds like you had fun with it! One hour eh? That's got to be a record! (pun intended) It takes me longer than an hour to get my cords untangled

Great Title Mario! I'm Blue Today Warts and All, you should write some lyrics along those lines! Nice job on the settings of Amplitude, I've never been very good at setting software pedals up. Hope you and your warts get to feeling better! lol

Thanx all for listening and the kind comments.

JCJazz, no I did not make it to the JazzFest. We were up at the 1000 Islands celebrating our 45 wedding anniversary. Actually our anniversary was on 7/1 but we could only book the room for the last week in June.

I am about 45 miles from Fairport, however my playing days are over. I just play for me now! I just sold my big guitar amp and I use only my computer, a Behringer V-Amp Pro or a Roland MicroCube amp. The MicroCube I use for both recording and jamming with friends.

Hey Mario,

How impressive is this song! I sat listening with my eyes closed and it was so easy to imagine the whole group on stage. Your work always has a polished professionalism and this is no exception.

All the best,
Noel

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit for macOS Catalina

With Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit for Mac we added Drum Notation Support, and we didn't stop there! Other Notation Enhancements added in this new version are:

-A new track type (Drums) is 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 it.
-Holding down the control key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
-In the Notation Window Options dialog, the clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
-Notation is much clearer, not jagged, on retina screens.
-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 is a keystroke entry mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, M to enter a third note, up/down cursor to change the pitch of the highlighted note, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
-You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
