I'd sure appreciate more slide guitar options. I wanted to create a slide guitar solo and had just TWO options.

Hey Eddie,

I'm all for more options, but just out of curiosity, did you try using either or both of those options and find the results unsatisfactory for any reason?

Yes I tried them. And I can't really say WHAT made them sound less than desirable because of the subjective nature of what is good or bad, but I just didn't like them. Too simple, too bland, etc. Choose your adjective. And I generated 10 different snippets trying to find something I could cobble together into a 16 bar solo and had nothing decent to work with.

I am aware that they can't approach Duane Allman to do samples, but with only 2 options I had to wonder. Between the county and blues guys who use this software, that's a wide market.

Eddie,

I saw a music wanted placement for a slide guitar piece on SongTradr and I just asked myself, what would Duane do?

So I triple stacked a Real Track Drum Track, plugged my tele into a twin, put a glass slide on my finger, turned it up to 10 and just tore it up.

Isn't that what you're doing?

Mine sounded pretty danged good and I don't see nothing wrong with it except it burns your face off. How are you trying to do it?

Duane and me are confused.

Well, David, I tried to play response parts with Real Tracks, but the options were horrible. I am getting to where I can barely play guitar anymore because of arthritis in my left middle and ring fingers so I am relying on tracks more and more. I hate getting old.

I do have to say that back when I played, every lick I knew on slide came from Duane. I often had them Statesboro Blues.

Eddie,

I hear ya man.

Some days I feel like I've been tied to the whipping post.

Just tied to the whipping post.

Good lord, Eddie, it feels like I'm dying.

Hey, could that be a song????

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.
