Hi All,

Here's something a bit loose and fun called Time Machine.

I wanna see through your abandoned eyes
So close the door on your time machine
I wanna float through our universe
So throw the switch on your time machine
 
I wanna swim in the Atlantic waves
And feel the sand run between our hands
I wanna write all those summer songs
So shine the sun on your time machine
 
I wanna breathe all your big words of love
So turn the dial on your time machine
I wanna keep all the coffee warm
So set the clock on your time machine
 
I wanna find an old black telephone
And hear your voice come across the line
I wanna talk till the sun comes up
So don’t hang up on your time machine
  
I wanna see my story in your eyes
So take me back on your time machine
I wanna find all the yesteryears
So break the glass on your time machine

Man, you are on a roll lately!

Really good, Bob, has your signature sound with those great, distinctive vocals.

"Band"sounds good, love that guitar part you dropped in between the verses, perfect choice!

Bob, Another good one! I really like your harmony vocal on this one. Drums are nice and upfront. Again you have created a poetic write with lots of room open to the listener for interpretation. Your unique sound never gets old to these ears, Tom

Excellent mix. Everything sits just right.

Cool song.

The mix seemed exceptionally hot in the low and mid end. It was roaring a bit in the speakers here. I normally can listen to everyone's music without having to grab the knobs.... this needed to be lowered a bit .


Anyway... good writing.

Wow - you nailed this! I'm getting some really nice nostalgic type vibes on this one. The harmonies you did on this are fantastic, too! The arrangement is awesome, and your vocals really cut through and are attention grabbing.

Great work, and thanks so much for sharing smile

Floyd,

Thanks - much appreciated.

I generated multiple versions of that rhythm guitar and then picked the best pieces for the solo part. So great to be able to do that. smile

Bob,

This song IS the time machine. I love how all of your songs take me back to the village and NYC. I always feel like I AM back in the day, and having such a blast.

One of the first ones that hit me this way was "Woodstock" which is one of my all time favorites.

When I close my eyes and listen to one of your tunes I can see myself going in a time machine back to Greenwich Village in 1968 and Lou Reed and Nico are sitting at some cafe outside in sunglasses.

Great artistry.

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.
