While succumbing to prostate cancer, the Hospice Nurse encouraged me to continue playing my music for Fred. He passed peacefully while listening.

Hi Don,

This is one heck of a toe tapper! It's a great listen. I'm pretty sure Fred would have enjoyed all the music that you brought to your shared room.

I offer my condolences to you on your loss.

One of the dangers of being male is prostate cancer. Generally it's a slow growing cancer and many men die of old age long before the cancer creates any issue. Fortunately these days, if the aggressive forms of the cancer are caught it time, they can be attended to.

Nearly two years ago, I was diagnosed with aggressive prostate cancer that had a Gleeson Score of 9 (as far as I know, the index only goes to 10). I had no symptoms at all and even my PSA count only indicated a 1 in 4 chance of my having the cancer. I completely understand how easy it would have been for Fred not to have his cancer picked up in time.

I strongly encourage all guys who read this, and who have not been tested for prostate cancer recently, to go and get it done. There's a ton of joy in catching this cancer in its early development. If the prostate is removed before there is significant damage to the urethra or bladder, the outcome is usually excellent.

Thanks for posting the song! I really enjoyed the energy you brought to my excited feet smile

All the best,
Noel

I've lost many musician friends to prostate cancer including several BIABers who had inspired many of us to persevere in our musical journey with this amazing software. Interestingly, they were always the first to toss the lifeline to us fledglings.

As breast cancer is to our female friends, prostate cancer is to us males.

My dear friend of 60 years, Mike Auldrige lost his long and painful battle with prostate cancer a few years ago. Upon learning that BIABer, Howard Tate was terminal, Mike sent him several unreleased tracks that Howard treasured until his death. Mike's love and compassion is how I will always remember him.

Here's Mike stealing an extra Dobro break:

Nina selected two of my BIAB tunes for 'future projects.'

Nina Gerber, guitarist for the late Folk singer-songwriter Kate Wolf (qv) was amazed that I recognized Mike's Dobro on this song of Kate's.

There is something very unique and recognizable about Mike's style that I will not soon forget.

R.I.P., my friend.

#TBT Band-in-a-Box Finds!

I don't know about everyone here, but now that I've settled in to our "new normal" I've taken to rearranging and dusting off many things in order to keep busy and productive!

I'm picking up old hobbies, picking up clutter around the house, and as it turns out - finding forgotten picks!

We snagged these gems many, many, many years ago after The NAMM Show one winter. Check out the old Band-in-a-Box logo! Click here...

Have any of you come across something nostalgic like this these days? Let's see it!

#TipTuesday - Style Changes in Band-in-a-Box®

Head to our Tips & Tricks forum to read what other Band-in-a-Box users have discovered about the program!

Like mrgeeze's recent post Style Changes within a song.. another great BIAB feature.

...My arrangement's bass Real Track was 397 (bass Acoustic Paul).
Solid but not really what I wanted for a solo.

I hit the F5 key to bring up bar setting and poked around till i found the Real Tracks command button in the upper right.
Clicked on that & quickly change the bass to 452 (Soloist (bluesy).
12 bars later I did the same and switched it back to 397.

The results were excellent...
