A vert old timey Dobro like tone on the intro guitar Scott. The 2nd sounds more modern.
Nice tones.
I have to admit that you sounded a little under rehearsed on a few runs - but only a few.
I'd be more comfy with a change of title - it has connotations.

Nice one, Scott!

I love the tone on both of the guitars, and the conversation they are having.

Listened twice, good stuff!

Thanks for checking out the song. Yes some of the runs were very new to me and did not flow as well as I would have liked. It will be a staple in my daily playlist so will revise it down the road a bit. Past memories pop into my heead all the time. When I was picking the key to play in I choose a G Minor. Right then I thought of a trip to Barkerville which is a 1880 mining town in the interior of British Columbia. So it was a bit of a play on words.

Thanks Dave. This H9 is a Pandora's box of effects. Some very unusual tones. Lots of exploring to do. Thanks for checking out the song.

Hi Scott,

yes, I do like it!

Very beautiful tone on the guitars, nice melodic lines - and I have the feeling I caught the mood you were in.

Bye summer, hi autumn.

Liked this a lot.

Take care,

Stefan

Scott,

Really like this one. Your guitar tone on this is prefect for the haunting melody...

Well done. A good listen...

I like the tonal difference in guitars and moody feel...mine doesn`t usually darken `til winter arrives. Keep playing through it like this- its a good soundtrack of the inner seasons!

Hey Scott,

I don't have a vast background in musical terminology, so I'll keep it simple. The guitar work evokes a floating, mellow sensation. Very enjoyable listen.

I thought I was hearing a dobro or lap steel for the first few bars...cool fx.

Nice band and you have that snare pop going. Love it.

The melody and guitar performance are very moody in an engaging way...haunting somewhat.

As alway, well done!

You sure have a knack for drawing a lot of expression out of a few phrases. Les Paul tone hard to miss.

You could pass some of the rain down to us - nasty drought here.

Nice dreamy bluesy guitar, sounds very nice - well played throughout.

Nicely done! Some great chords, and a lovely atmospheric vibe to it. We've been getting lots of rain over on the west coast here too in B.C. and this tune fits the dreary ambiance here too. Really dreamy, and some awesome tones laced throughout.

Thanks for sharing smile

Hi Scott,

I love your thoughtful, lyrical playing. The backing and your melody created a pleasurable yet mysterious feeling in my mind. It was quite magical. I'm not sure how your did that, but I was impressed!

Another fine work to add to your collection!

All the best,
Noel

Minor Pentatonic? I don't know for sure, but this has a feel I hear quite a bit this side of the great water. Thus it feels very familiar and oddly comforting and "Asian", though it is no doubt sad and "mysterious". The spare band and high-and-lonesome tone along with your beautifully delivered licks are a wonderful package. Much enjoyed.

A very mysterious vibe and delivery. The guitar lines sound great. Awesome backing and mix.

Excellent!

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit for macOS Catalina

With Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit for Mac we added Drum Notation Support, and we didn't stop there! Other Notation Enhancements added in this new version are:

-A new track type (Drums) is 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 it.
-Holding down the control key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
-In the Notation Window Options dialog, the clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
-Notation is much clearer, not jagged, on retina screens.
-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 is a keystroke entry mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, M to enter a third note, up/down cursor to change the pitch of the highlighted note, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
-You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
