A great song from the Toy Story film series.
I can't post my 'original' guitar audio recording of this great tune in Showcase as a) it's a 'cover' and b) I dont do video.
But - my good friend Phil McGarrick DOES do video and he's a pretty good guitarist too.
So here is his video of him playing my arrangement of 'You've Got A Friend In Me' to my BIAB BT. Hope you followed all that. ;-)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=96PhmFkYGVw

The arrangement was created entirely in BIAB, apart from the Clarinet which is a separate audio recording added at the DAW stage.
The Style is _2Pence with additional RTs -
RealTracks in style: 1205:Bass, Acoustic, GypsyJazzBallad Sw 110 ('A' Only)
RealTracks in style: 1791:Piano, Acoustic, Rhythm DixielandMedium Sw 110
RealTracks in style: 1210:Guitar, Acoustic, Rhythm GypsyJazzBalladJohn Sw 110
RealTracks in style: 1966:Clarinet, Soloist DixielandMediumA-B Sw 110
RealTracks in song: 1543:Synth Pad, PopBelieve Ev16 065
RealTracks in song: 1792:Tuba, DixielandMedium Sw 110
RealDrums [in style:NashvilleBrushesHillbillySwing: a: Sidestick, Brushesb: Brushes, Stick

Don't you just love that beautiful Gibson J200.
The more I attempt with BIAB, the more amazed I am at its capabilities and what it draws out of me.
Cheers
Ian

Great performance. Phil delivered a masterful rendition, (as I'm sure others here have equally done...)
Excellent!

Great playing. Check out this one he did. Really interesting perspective with the camera mounted on the head stock.

Ian,

What a great song arrangement! Thank you for sharing this with us. In my opinion your song arrangement is professional quality.

PG Music should obtain the rights to this performance and use it to demonstrate how powerful and professional sounding Band-in-a-Box can be when used by someone that is talented, knowledgeable and skilled.

Sorry for the delay.
Thank you to all who commented on the very kind words both for Phil and myself. Much appreciated.
It was Trev (our VideoTrack) who got me on the right road in a Post in the General section by offering _2Pence as a Style that might suit what I looking for. Boy, did it!
Filled it out with a few extra RTs - that TUBA for example is perfect in there.
I use it now in my general Club Night 'gigs' Set and it always comes as a big surprise as its is so different to my normal "Shadows" type material.
Very bests
Ian and Phil

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows was released in December 2018, and included many new features and enhancements - like the enhancements we made to our Notation window!

These include:
-Pressing the space bar plays the song from the current location.
-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.
-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.
-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.
-In the Notation Windows Options dialog, the clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
-The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
-You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
-A new track type (Drums) is available for the Melody and Soloist tracks.
-Holding down the Ctrl key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
-There's a keystroke entry 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.
-A new button in the Print Options dialog lets you quickly print a "chords only" fake sheet. You can also access this from the right-click menu on the Chord Sheet.
-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.


There's detailed information on our 2019 notation enhancements here: Band-in-a-Box® 2019 New Feature - Notation Enhancements

My Favorite Things - Nudge Chords in Band-in-a-Box®

Love this time saving feature.

Ever fill in the chordsheet fully or for part of song, and then discover you want to add or take away an extra beat or more somewhere in the chordsheet.

Nudge chords (melody) from the Edit Menu is your friend here, the dialog will give you all the options either to remove or add beats where its needed.

Love it.
