Just saw the story. The first inductee into the Rock Hall of Fame is gone. Like a lot of kids back then, he was one of the reasons I started playing guitar. I got to meet him twice when he played in Cleveland. Duck walk with the angels, sir.

Amen Eddie. When I was 12 in 1958 I went to bed every night listening to all night radio stations. Chuck Berry, Little Richard and Elvis were burned into my soul then. I still listen to them.

Very much a top-of-the-"A"-list entertainer, innovator, songwriter and musician. Popular music as we know it would not exist without him. RIP

He gave us the first R&R sweetheart, "Sweet Little 16", the first R&R guitar hero "Johnny B Goode", the first R&R car songs, "Maybellene" and "No Money Down", was a first class showman, singer, and songwriter.

IMHO Berry and Presley were the two most important people in early Rock & Roll. Everyone who followed owes them a debt.

RIP Mr. Berry. The music in heaven will be a little better tonight.

Pretty much played to his grave. The wife and I last saw him perform a few years ago here in the STL.

Key signature says it's in C. Music says it's in A. Doesn't it? No sharps, no flats... First notes a root and 5th of A? confused

That reminds me of that horrible pun-based joke.

In what key is someone before they turn 21?

A minor.

Eddie,

I am sorry. I did not put the key signature. It is actually in Bb (original key) though a lot of people play it in A.

In the movie Back to the Future it leads to one of the great misleading musical quotes of all time, when Marty tells the band it's in B. Again, it's actually in Bb.

Don't know how he did it really. There's a lot of stuff flying to keep your head on straight in that key. Tricky. He was a great player.

Great story. When he played here once, he had called ahead to have the local union arrange for a back up band and it happened to be all guys I knew very well. When I saw them the next week, they said it was a NIGHTMARE trying to follow him. Just for no reason in mid song he would change key. They told me that at one point he played an intro and then did a totally different song than what the intro was for and was not anywhere on the set list, which he did not follow at all anyway. Fortunately 75% of his stuff was exactly the same kind of vamp with different lyrics. At one point he was doing My Ding-a-Ling and in mid verse he popped out into Maybeline with no notice.

They wondered if he did it to make the backing band look bad so he looked better.

You see the documentary that Keith Richards was in and produced about a concert with Chuck Berry? Chuck jumped all over him for not playing on of his licks correctly...a lot of the film was contentious but still very entertaining.

Video: Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows® New Features!

Our "Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows®! New Features, RealTracks, and other content!" video is now ready! Get to know all about the newest features in Band-in-a-Box® 2019: Click here to watch...

We have listed a table of contents for this video, you'll see it within the YouTube video description, or by visiting this forum post.

RealBand 2019 - A New Look!

Have you opened up your RealBand 2019 yet? You may notice that we've given it a fresh new look! In fact, there are now 3 different looks to RealBand.

See for yourself! Within the program, visit Options | Icon Set and choose from: Classic, Modern 1, or Modern 2.

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.
