Interesting song theme, and a great presentation.

I liked the 'urgency' that you captured so well.

Harmonies worked well, too.

Great title and the song has a sort of 50's teenage feel to me.
Good fun. Cheers.

Rode my share of Greyhounds in the 80's and lived to tell. This is an interesting song/lyric! Interesting rhymes ("for her" and horror"-probably never been done before) Dusty did a great job on the vocals! Very cool! Take care. Greg

Thanks for all the great input! "So, where was she?" Doesn't really resolve, does it? In real life, she was on the next bus. OR...COULD have been. smile

After some consultation, the "for her"/"horror" rhyme is listed in online rhyming dictionaries, which I doubt the lyricist consults, but honestly can't find an example of its use on Google. So at least rare, if ever done before. Lyrical easter eggs are often tucked in his lyrics...

REALLY appreciate it!

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows!

There are Notation Enhancements in the NEW Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows! These include:
•A new button in the Print Options dialog which lets you quickly print a "chords only" fake sheet. You can also access this from the right-click menu on the chord sheet.
•A new track type (Drums) is now 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 The line.)
•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. Previously, it played the song from the beginning of the current bar.
•Holding down the [Ctrl] key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
•In The Notation Windows Options dialog, The clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
•Pressing The space bar plays the song from the current time location, not the current bar.
•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's a keystroke entry notation 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.
•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.
•You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.

We talk about these new features within our Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows®! New Features, RealTracks, and other content! video:
