This is a little song I wrote with the image of South Texas, it's many bars and Cantinas and all of their colorful patrons in mind. Of course I not only hope you enjoy the music, but the story as well.

It's called My Black Haired Beauty

As always thanks for your time to listen and comment as well.

Nicely done. Reminds me of Jimmy Buffett if he hung out on the border.

Nicely done, Danny. And quite clever. Great use of the "mex" tracks. And a really nice mix. Guess that would be mex-mix.

I would say it sounds like a cross between Jimmy Buffett and Randy Newman (which is a pretty cool combination).

Yeah man! Great to hear something with those border tracks. Seemed like an "Island-Mex" sound to my ears.

Well done.
I like the mex style (and dogs, too).

austin51,

Thanks for the listen, and Jimmy has been known to drop in from time to time.

Floyd,

Thanks for the kind words and time to listen.

90db

Gracias . . . and have another on me.


Mootsman,

Thank you man and I too love those mex tracks, just a bit difficult finding the right trumpet track to go with them, I almost got it with this one but still not to my liking.

Guenter,

I appreciate the listen time and comments as well, and for what it's worth That Black Haired Beauty does belong to me.

Thanks to all,

Loved it Danny!

This song sounded like a Marty Robbins song to me! Great job on this one.

I think your problem with the trumpets is that you are looking for a Mariachi band sound with two trumpets playing. That is the first thing I thought of as you have pictures of a Mariachi band. Just my thoughts good buddy.

You know just what I was thinking . . . sometimes you just have to make lemonade when handed a lemon. Not that the trumpet track is a lemon, and I was always told never eat/suck a lemon in front of a trumpet player. I wonder why? But I digress . . . again.

PS: I still love that version of Teach Me Tonight we did together a few years back.

Thanks man,

Hi Danny,

Please add "+1 and then some" to all the above compliments. This was a great song to listen to. I've gotta hand it to you, you've got a really clever way with words. I admire your ability. I'm learning lots from you as listen to your work.

All the best,
Noel

Great song! I loved the trumpet.

And it sounded great through the cheap laptop speakers I'm currently using, which says a lot about the mix.

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Danny,

Outstanding!!! The story really pulled me in. And living just outside of San Antonio, the music sounded familiar.

Very cleverly written, and the mix and overall "sound" is right on. Your vocals really fit the song too.

Other than all the above, though, I really like the song!

Steve

Fixed: Dragging a file into the tracks window didn't always result in the effects slot for the track being setup properly for the file type dragged in.

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.
