Recently saw a great documentary: "Life After Django"..story of a gathering of 100 (!!) guitarists in France all playing Django-style..it was fabulous guitar playing..decided to come up with a homage.
Used all the great RT's for gypsy jazz. Made my own chords to create a kind of upward walking line. Let BIAB generate a melody..used most of it, with some tweaks. Had to leave in my vibe "guide melody" line--the intervals were really aggressive for my meager singing skills. Comments appreciated. THanks.

Django

Once in a blue moon a player
Could noodle oh so sweet;
Man, what lovely sounds that
Gypsy ax would make!
Out of the clear blue sky,
Hear those crazy jazz notes fly.

No one has heard of a player
Whose fingers were oh so fleet;
Django's his name,
And jazz his game;
Chords roar,
And his solos soar;
And he loves life..
Lives it big..
Lives it a whole lot.


He made his magic with
Only three fingers that really flew;
Dieux! His hot quintette could
Play it fast and true.
Off of the Paris streets,
He paved the way for modern beats.

Once in a while comes a brother who plays from his very soul.
Django had heart
From the very start;
Now he's gone,
But his fame lives on;
And he loved life..
Lived it big..
Lived it a whole lot.

Hey that sounds pretty good. I think your singing is just fine. It is amazing the guitar leads you can get out of BIAB! Pretty cool composition -- what was that "more weird" instrument in there. Please list you instruments used -- that would be helpful.

Very cool!! I saw the same special a while back and have been a fan of "hot club" music for years. I once played with a fantastic "Bela Fleck" style banjo player who loved Django. He wrote a great tune called "Redneck in the Hot Club." What's really special, also, about seeing your composition here is that my wife and I just cooked up a little 60s Django/Grapelli BIAB number called "Gypsy Ripple" to end our new CD with.

Nice lyrics also and very meaningful for adherents. Thanks for the listen. Can't wait to play it for her.

Hi Tano,

Another very creative work from your studio! I don't know too much about Gypsy jazz, but I've got to say that I enjoyed listening to this composition. It's very energetic and up beat.

All the best,
Noel

Yes, this is very creative and a good piece of music.

That “weird” sound comes in at the 0:10, 0:50, 1:27 and 1:58 marks. Nothing in your list made this sound.

This is kind of quirky in a very good way. It was great fun listening to it. Great relentless energy and I like the lyrics.

Those who noticed the "weird" sound...it's on the bass RT...I went back to my BIAB-generated song file...it's there, too occasionally. I took it to be a "real" sound..like some kind of fingerboard "boing", and so I really didn't pay it any mind when I was building the track.
Is this something that I ought to shoot off to PG for look at, or are there other RT anomalies like this that others run into?

As Austin said this is kind of quirky in a very good way.
I liked listening.
Since "Hesitation" you found a new singing style.

+1 from me. Fun, quirky, and cool. Enjoyed it.

Sometimes there are anomolies that get recorded on the tracks. So far I've been lucky to not have anything I couldn't regenerate to get rid of or work around but there have been isolated tracks in the past that have been fixed in updates. You might want to let someone at pg know and they can decide about that noise.

Real tracks do have noise that is made by the musician who plays it, to me these noises are part of what makes it sound like a real person playing. You get piano pedal sounds along with bass fretboard thumps, guitar pick clicks, horn players breath, etc. Cool Song and progression!

Sounds fine to me. e.g. At 0:50 it is a 'skip' note where the bass player is playing a quick open 'a' note, which happens to slap/buzz briefly, but is musical and sounds fine to me.

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows - Choosing to Run 64-bit or 32-bit

We heard you! With the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows we've included the BRAND NEW 64-bit version of Band-in-a-Box®, which works well with the latest plugins and 64-bit OS features! Because not everyone has a 64-bit computer, we include both the 64-bit and 32-bit versions with your purchase - you choose which one to use!

By default, when you install your Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows the 32-bit version will run.

The steps to run the 64-bit version are simple! Just head to your "bb" folder and choose the "bbw64" icon - you'll notice that the Band-in-a-Box® "splash screen" will state "64-bit" as the program opens.
(and if you open the 32-bit version, the "splash screen" will state "32-bit")

Still not certain which version you're running? Within the program, go to Help | About Band-in-a-Box - it'll either state:

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2019 (604)
<--- the number in brackets is the build number - this will change as new patch updates are released
64 bit application

or:

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2019 (604)
<--- the number in brackets is the build number - this will change as new patch updates are released
32 bit application

We hope everyone who can is enjoying their Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit version for Windows!

NEW! Style-style-style Additions and Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows!

With over 64 new features and enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019, we've made sure to add to, enhance, and update some of the Style features within the program: StylePicker, StyleMaker, and Song Titles browser within the StylePicker!

StylePicker Enhancements:
-If the style list needs rebuild, it tells you that within the StylePicker, instead of a message that requires a response.
-The rebuild is faster than before by 75%. It takes 1/4 of the time now.
-While the style list is being rebuilt, you can see the progress inside the StylePicker.
-The style list can be filtered by a specific RealTracks/RealDrums/MIDI SuperTracks or RealTracks/MIDI SuperTracks in a certain number range.
-You can filter the style list by a specific Xtra Styles PAK.
-The dialog to select an Xtra Styles PAK has a button to take you to the PG Music website that shows information about Xtra Styles PAKs.
-The StylePicker can list all styles (including N/A styles) in the default display.
-The Set number display is improved, including sort by type and Xtra styles.

StyleMaker Improvements:

-The new MIDI velocity offset allows you to make styles with altered loudness for MIDI tracks.
-Styles can be saved with information like a memo, examples, genres, and more, which will be displayed in the StylePicker.
-You can import information from another style. This is useful when you are making a similar style.
-A style can have a huge number of RealTracks (up to 70!) because the StyleMaker now supports RealTracks multi/medley feature, which allows a single track to have up to 10 simultaneous playing of RealTracks.

Song Titles Browser Enhancement

-We’ve added 300 more song titles including requests from users, so there are now over 10,600 titles.
-The chord density filter is available, and it’s also displayed in the memo.
-The chord complexity filter is available.
