If you post the most common Biab actions, hotkeys you use or need I will try to add them to the Chord Picker Tool default User Action Buttons, any of these can also be set to the middle mouse button to save going through tress of menus. Free Biab Chord Picker Tool

If you are running in "Always On Top" mode, the BB Menu could also be added to the Chord Picker GUI:

The User Action Buttons are in the settings.ini in the Chord Picker install folder, open with Notepad.
You have the button name: ButtonCA11name=Unfold
and the button function: ButtonCA11funct=!{e},{Down 10},{Right},{Down 5},{Enter}
so it sends Alt+e to open the Edit menu
goes down 10
then right
down 5 and hits enter.

RealTracks Artist Pat Martino

We are saddened to hear of the passing of jazz guitar legend Pat Martino yesterday.

Pat was part of our RealTracks Artist "Jazz Pollwinners 2" series in 2014. You can learn about Pat and listen to his RealTracks contribution here.

Pat had been playing guitar since he was just 12 years old, and devoted himself to music in grade ten. On top of years of performing (he began playing professionally in 1961), Pat received many awards for his playing, including the "Jazz Legacy" Award in 2016 presented by Pennsylvania State Senator Vincent Hughes and his wife Sheryl Lee Ralph-Hughes.

Learn even more about Pat Martino when you visit his website, http://www.patmartino.com/.
