Hi all this is my first write for the year.
Wanted to write a tune called the funky chicken and here is the result.
All comments welcome. Rob

The Funky Chicken

I was up late last night commotion I was hearing.
Was no hare nor a grizzly bear or army on a mission.
It was a sight in the middle of the night just outside the kitchen
It was my wife all dressed in white doing the funky chicken.

She hoped two feet in to the air one sock one missing.
She flapped her arms and scratched the ground she sure made a vision.
It aint fare but she don’t care don’t mention finger licken.
It was my wife all dressed in white doing the funky chicken.
..................................................................................................
Well I don’t care what people say or what’s their point of view.
If you think I'm crazy then maybe you are too.
So come and join me on the conga line lose your Inhibition you'll be fine.
..................................................................................................

Its do or dare don’t have that flare when wanting recognition.
When they won’t do want you want them to, then clarify your position.
When it aint right no need to fight just wait for intermission
You’re up tight in the middle of the night doing the funky chicken.

I was up late last night commotion I was hearing.
Was no hare nor a grizzly bear or army on a mission.
It was a sight in the middle of the night just outside the kitchen
It was my wife all dressed in white doing the funky chicken.

"Robert4580":

LOL laugh !!!

"...If you think I'm crazy then maybe you are too..." Oh, brother, is that ever priceless!

Why, this little ditty is so dang irresistible that I'd scatter my feathers all up and down that hoppin' "conga line" for a chance to hoof this one up with any female funky enough to do the "funky chicken" with me crazy !!!

Pure fun at 45 rpm, it surely is.

LOREN

All I can add to what already has been said is this is absolutely fantastic

Two thumbs up for creativity, two more for originality, and another two for performance.

You put a vision in my head that will be hard to get rid of!

A terrific listen.

All the best,

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.
