Hi All,

This is something new called Moonshot.

Miles between us
On the coast or outer space
Flying tonight
Every route feels untrue
I kinda wish this tired old moonshot was you

Lines round my eyes
The years above the radar
Flying away
Will somehow have to do
I kinda wish this tired old moonshot was you

I kinda wish this tired old moonshot was true
I kinda wish this tired old moonshot was you

Catch an updraft
Watch the clouds fade away
Flying this way
Navigate without a crew
I kinda wish this tired old moonshot was you

I kinda wish this tired old moonshot was true
I kinda wish this tired old moonshot was you

All BIAB Tracks:
2474: Bass, Acoustic, Held Ev 085
2505: Piano, Electric, HeldChords 085
2914: Guitar, Acoustic, Fingerpicking Folky16thsBrent Ev16 085

This is great and very current in todays style of music, finger picking guitar and vocals sit really well together and made me wonder if you needed the heavier guitar at all ?.

Great mix and great sound.

Thanks

Man, so prolific! I have no idea how you do it.

Great stuff as usual, Bob!

Lot's of passion in your vocal when you are singing the "I kinda wish this tired old moonshot was true" line.

Bob,

As cool as only another terrific Bob Dean song can be. This one has a nice spacey feel ( the signature guitar) but your voice is passionate and earthy- such a good contrast. One of your best vocals, I think.
An excellent big sound you make with the simple band.

Robert

Nice song - I like the instrumentation and it's got a memorable chorus. And it's got your distinctive sound. smile

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

Ah, the wonders of regional pronunciation and meanings.
The word "route" is said "root" in Oz and "route" as you said it means utter defeat in battle or to cut a groove in wood.
Due to this difference my tired old brain shot wandered into permutations and I had to come back to the song again.
Perplexing imagery in some parts but that's excellent - something to gnaw and wonder at.
VERY enjoyable.

Terrific listen.

SongPicker Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac!

The Band-in-a-Box® SongPicker has been enhanced with our newest 2020 version!

The SongPicker now builds faster for large song lists (>30K and up to 60,000 songs). The [Song] button (or the [Open] button) now has 3 additional menu items to launch the SongPicker.

- Open SongPicker in Current Folder: This opens the SongPicker in the current folder of the last loaded song.
- Open SongPicker in Home Folder: This opens the SongPicker in the home folder, which is Applications/Band-in-a-Box/MySongs or as set in the SongPicker.
- Open SongPicker in Favorite Folder: This launches the Favorite Folder dialog which allows you to choose any previously used folder where a song was loaded from, and then open the SongPicker in that folder.

In the SongPicker, there is a new “Open in Home” option. If this is enabled, the SongPicker will always open in the home folder instead of the current folder when you press the default [Song] button to open the SongPicker.

Searching for songs matching a chord progression or melody has been enhanced. There are three new checkboxes: "Key must match exactly," "Chord Extension must match exactly", and "Time Signature must match."

Click here to jump to the SongPicker subject in our New Features video to learn more. (32:11)

(read more about this feature in our Band-in-a-Box 2020 for Mac Online Upgrade Manual.)

New "Feature Browser" in Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac

Band-in-a-Box® has so many features! We add 50 new ones with every version, so you may have forgotten all the different things that Band-in-a-Box® can do. Fortunately, with the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2020 we've solved this issue by added a Feature Browser!

How does it work? Access this feature by clicking on the [?] button on the main screen of the program or pressing the / Enter keys on the Chord Sheet. This dialog lists many features of the program and allows you to browse them, find the feature by text filter, read descriptions about the feature, find how to launch the feature, access to the online information or video about the feature, and do more.

Examples of a few situations where this feature is helpful:

-You know about a feature but don't know how to find it. Just type a part of the feature name and you'll see the hotkeys, menu, and toolbar info on how to launch it. For example, if you want to launch the Chord Builder but don’t know how to do it, type "builder" in the text filter, and you will quickly find the Chord Builder.
-You are exploring available features for Band-in-a-Box. For example, if you are a guitar player, type the word "guitar" and you'll see what's available.
-You prefer "one-stop-shopping" and would like to launch features from the same dialog.
-You are learning the program and like to browse or watch videos about topics you're interested in.
You can't remember hotkeys and want to review them.

Watch this new feature in action when you jump to the subject in our New Features video: 10:20 - New Feature - Feature Browser
