Harmonica Blues

Hi all,

well, I got my BIAB 2018 this weekend!
I took a "Jessies Girl" midi file, and
put it through BIAB using _OOHLA.STY

When I pressed play it did not come out perfect.
So I started deleting chords, where I thought it
was not working out. 65% of the chords were deleted
I was down to 27 bars... which really sounded good.
I looped 3 repetitions.

The night before I put some irregular Ooh's and Ahh's
together. First half as the intro... second half as the bridge
in this song. Hoping to make the song structure more natural.

I guess some Harmonica could be edited out if some vocals are added.
A collab is not out of the question....

It will be fun to Jam with...

Nice work here, LPman! I really enjoyed the use of those Oohs and Aah's here. They perfectly compliment the harmonica. Not to mention, it is wonderfully catchy with an excellent groove. There a lot of charisma in this one for sure. I can imagine it sounding unreal performed in a live setting.

You should be proud of this one - thanks for sharing!

Hi Deryk - PG Music
I am proud of this one, thank you so much!
I am hoping to take another midi file and
destroying it: in the same way... to find out if
this a valid method to produce musical hooks.

My B61-Day is this month! Thanks to this forum & PG music... It's going to be a great month to remember!

Thanks Ember - PG Music
I am on Smule.com hoping to find some singing talant or a co-writer. I watched Jane Floyd's new movie, on how he writes his songs. This is such a giving forum to be a part of....

Hello, LPman

Ooh's and Ahh's vocals are really nice and effective.
They seem like a little gospel-style.
If they were Motown-like vocals they might sound completely gospely.
Harmonica is also very nice.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

Shigeki Adachi

Hi Shigeki Adachi,

Ya the intro and bridge is very gospel, come to think of it... I wonder if choral harmony is possible? Thanks so much for your comment. Glad you enjoyed it

Thanks Rob4580
I tried the same concept and made a BIAB video.
I just named it LOST DOG.mp4
I placed it in my Tethered 2018 folder below:
I'll tinker a bit with it on the piano...
thanks for posting here cool

The smooth vocals and the raunchy harmonic make for an interesting contrast.

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

Hi dcuny,
Ya, I didn't even change anything with regeneration of the harmonica. Normally I make 5 tracks and edited it to one track.... but BIAB did fine on it's own...

Thanks for posting dcuny

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.
