I edited/created a Melodist for this style.

Style is _WSWING5.STY (WesternSwing Piano Solo [165RS])
I used John's piano as melody adding Fiddle for Soloist.

Think this would be good dance music.

Did a lot of EDIT>AUDIO EFFECTS>Gain Changes, 3 different
fade-ins, and 2 gains just on intro. Then the abrupt changes
between melody and soloist, cut small piece on the piano leading into soloist,
and quick fade-in for fiddle, also did quick fadeout for fiddle.
Ending had silence clipped, but regular instrument endings. Also dropped drums/bass
down to minimum level during solo.
I know telling a whole story in one sentence.....

I welcome comments for this song!

Frank,

This sounded terrific.

I love the use of the various instruments and swing/jazz touches that are going on here. I must get into the jazzy side of things at some point...

Great Stuff, Man!

Mike,

Thank you very much....But this is not actually Jazz, albeit sounds like it to me
also its the style design..
Style is _WSWING5.STY (WesternSwing Piano Solo [165RS])
I did add the soloist and some other simple changes, but its how the style sounds.
Felt the same way, Jazzy.
But with the beat folks could dance up a storm.

Western Swing is Redneck Jazz, sounds great Frank! I use to record a Western Swing band for a weekly radio show, and they sounded almost like this! Love It!

Bob,
Thanks for your generous comments. Was surprised
when auditioning the style. Then created the Melodist
to help create songs. Like its danceable aspect myself.

Tommy,

The song surely does have its jazz aspects as I mentioned to Bob.
Thank you, appreciate it coming from and "Ole" pro like you.
Notice I DID NOT say "Old".

Compliments to PG and their staff for their great style creation.

Sweet! I used to listen to and play a little western swing but haven't explored the BIAB possibilities. Every thing works well to my liking.

Nifty piece! I liked your selections for the soloists...very comfortable, makes-you-mile kind of music.

One comment, I'd spiff up the ending a bit..I wanted more!!

Mootsman, Tano,

Sweet and Nifty, sound like title for a new song.

Style like the "Old" days.

Andy's Fiddle RT seemed to fit, so used it.

Thanks for compliments from both of you!

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.
