Check out this video I came across on YouTube - Band-in-a-Box backing up a Weissenborn Guitar!


Browsing through YouTube with the simple search criteria of "Band-in-a-Box" always results in some great video finds!

I've always loved this song... enjoy!

Callie,
Yes, this is nice... the Weissenborn is at the top of my RealTracks wish list!

That was in the film la Bamba a film about Ritchie Valens

Born Ricardo Esteban Valenzuela Reyes.

I still to this day think, that film is one of the best ever done about a

true star.

The Day The Music Died.

I'm looking to create a backing track for "Sleepwalk". Does anybody know what Real Style was used for this backing track ...or any suggestions on how to create a similar sound (i.e with a guitar hitting all downstroke notes)?

Such wonderful memories Callie. Thanks for the trip back in time.

I played in a trio with a PSG player who aced "Sleep Walk" which remains among my favourites. Gosh, that was back in the 50s!

The Band-in-a-Box Songpicker suggests ZZPBAL12.STY (that's an all midi 4/4 style) at 80 BPM in the key of C.

BIAB also suggested _PNOC128.STY as a RealTrack alternative to the aforementioned MIDI style.

I generally channel the Danny Gatton version of this song when I play
Its a little less 12/8 and a little more swing.

here's my setting

Hoping the file attached properly

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.
