Jerry "wolf" Arnold was a friend of mine. He was a bluegrass musician who lived in Fancy Gap Virginia. He introduced me to my wife. He hosted a bluegrass music festival on his mountain property every year around the end of August for his birthday. Hundreds of his friends from all over would come and camp out and play music.

One year, he married his long time girl friend at the festival.

He developed cancer and after fighting it for a few years finally lost the fight to the disease.

He loved music and learned to play guitar but his real love turned out to be the mandolin.

On this track I play guitar and sing...

Band in a Box is playing everything else..... mixing was done on Sonar.

The music starts at 20 seconds into the video so hang in there....


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5DmLXESjGWs yeah... I'm in this video 2:49 center , 5:07 blue shirt, 5:48 ... me on L, my wife in center, Wolf on R

Just the song>>>> http://soundclick.com/share.cfm?id=11843061

I hope you enjoy it.

Herb,

Beautiful in every way. The song, the production, the video. You've done an incredible thing "sharing your dear friend Wolf" with us - and all who might one day see and hear this. Touching, to say the least...

Hey thanks for listening and commenting.

This song was something that I wanted to do for a few years and started and stopped. Writing a song like this is not easy. I started in earnest to complete this in the spring of last year and had the goal of having it ready before his birthday in August. This time it all came together in fine fashion. Several people who were asked to contribute to recording and writing backed out in the end leaving me to "do it all". I was able to get 2 people to send me some photo's of Wolf which I scanned and returned.

Several of the people in the video said that it takes a lot to make them cry, but by the end of the song, two of them (big burly guys) were wiping tears and warned their wives to bring the tissue box before "you watch this" video since it's gonna make you cry.


This was indeed a labor of love and a project from the heart. I'm glad you all enjoyed it.

Guitarhacker....thanks for a loving tribute to your friend and for bring back many memories for me of my earlier days in the hollers of West Virginia. I 'saw" quite a few friends sitting around those campfires and splashing in the creek there in your YouTube vid....haven't thought about them in years. Thanks for the memories.

Herbie, I have always been a fan of your music, and this song is no different. I loved what you did with it. Tough to lose dear friends. It is great to have a hope for the future of receiving loved ones back. John 5:28,29

Beautiful work old friend.

Summary of Changes in Build 2:
Fixed: Sometimes the position of the VST/DX plugs window (even if not visible) would prevent a drop, such as into the drop station, from occurring.
Fixed: When batch converting files, the volume of some file types such as wav/mp3/wma/mp4, etc. would be too low.
Fixed: In Chords Window, you could not enter held chords on Piano track.
Fixed: LeadSheet might not display tied notes on the last bar of a track.
Fixed: Pressing "M" key in Editable Notation to insert a new note at the current time location on the Staff was inserting a duplicate note rather than inserting it above an existing note.
Fixed: Loading in a MusicXML file could result in MIDI notes of zero instead of the currect MIDI notes.
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.
Fixed: When inserting hard rest, and answering Yes to question about removing notes for the peg, it would remove notes from both clefs instead of the clef that the rest was inserted on.
Fixed: Potential access violation when deleting a note in staff window.
Fixed: Potential jukebox access violation if there were songs with the entire path of the filename being 256 characters or greater loaded into jukebox.
Fixed: Jukebox not playing the playlist in correct order in certain situations involving stopping/restarting, etc.
Fixed: When loading in a MusicXML file that has a specific guitar fretboard defined that matches one of our fretboards, the guitar tablature type will now be set for the notation.
Fixed: Ability to load in .MXL (compresssed musicXML file) as well as ability to load normal noncompressed musicXML file with the new .musicxml extension instead of just .XML.
Fixed: Hammer ons, pull offs, and slides are now being saved to MusicXML files.
Fixed: Exceptionally jittery timing indicator in the notation window during playback compared to older versions of RealBand.
Fixed: If the start of a generated section of a song didn't have a chord entered at the beginning of the section, then it could default to a C major chord instead of the most recent chord prior to the section.
Fixed: Potential access violation if song has micro-pegs and multiple notes on a peg.
Fixed: Accidental element that specified whether a note was displayed as sharp/flat wasn't eing saved to XML, even though the correct pitch of the note itself was saved.

Summary of Changes in Build 5 (Oct 10)
Fixed: Sometimes the position of the VST/DX plugs window (even if not visible) would prevent a drop, such as into the drop station, from occurring.

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.
