Well, call off the hounds.

This one really get nuts. Just after I posted my last message, I got an
email from Yahoo saying that they noticed I had been nosing around in
their web pages, and to go back and enter a new authorization code (never
had an old authorization code), so I did, and it works, and there has got
to be a better way.

Thanks Notes,
Bob P

Well Bob, thanks to you I at least got a chuckle out of this fiasco.

I had already "been there, done that", but I am told by Yahoo that my
email has "not been converted and is not available for subscription".
Now what the hell do I do?

It would be easier to do this with Cakewalk than BiaB, but IMHO it would be
easiest with any music publishing program. Editing notation is what they
are designed to do, the notation windows on BiaB and Cakewalk are very
limited in comparison.

Drum Patterns

Clemmons, Scott <scottc@...>
 

Hi,

I'm interested in creating the following:
1) Drum Patterns that I can print out and read.
2) Rhythm patterns, sometimes complex (e.g. using compound meters) , that I can print out and also create MIDI files to practice along with.

My goal for #1 is simply to take my son's patterns that his teacher wrote by hand and put them into a compiled, legible form.
My goal for #2 is to help myself get better at reading and playing rhythmic patterns.

What do you think is the easiest way to accomplish these goals? (I stress ease because I don't want to spend my limited time messing around with a tool rather than actually practicing.)

I have BIAB v10 and Cakewalk. I'm willing to buy whatever program will help me do this.

Can anyone recommend a good style to use for the tune "St. Thomas" by Sonny

sounded right.

Re: Harmony notes on separate midi channels

Don Turner
 

Thanks for respnding so quickly. I have already created a style with
straight chords for guitar and piano to use with another program that
generates sequences from chords; I have been using the piano chord
track from that to feed the harmonizer. I wasn't aware of the Export
chords to External MIDI Device feature in biab.

Thanks for the suggestion to input the melody directly into biab;
hadn't thought about that either. I would need to enter the chord
sequence into biab before inputing the melody anyway; you saved me
couple of steps.

Any thoughts on the most useful biab harmonies for this purpose or on
creating a biab harmony to generate these harmonies on separate midi
channels?

Thanks,
Don

Don,
I have a Digitech Vocalist II.
BIAB has built in support for it and similar devices.
Chords can be automaticaly sent in root position for these devices.
See Help/MIDI Settings/Export Chords To External Midi Device Dialog.
BIAB can also put harmony on separate tracks.
The melody notes can be input directly into BIAB, harmonized, and
rendered to a standard midi file in less time than it would take to
use CakeWalk. I don't see the advantage of using CakeWalk although
it
can be done that way.

Good job Dave. I just uploaded a text version and an Excel 2000
version of all 178 tunes from the Jazz Guitar solos. I am missing 4,
and a few have question marks. Please let me know if anyone can fill
in the blanks. They are listed under the B heading right now but
Alisdair may choose to move them elsewhere.

Thanks,

Yep, 69 is Bluesette, not 36. I tried 26 again and it's one of those

49 and 86 have identical changes except for bars 28 & 29. To my ears,
either works for Another You. I provisionally mark these as a repeat.

Thanks. I've now got it to work! Interestingly, the GMCLASS_.ASC file
needs to have the MSDOS short names. For example, instead of:

&#92;Program Files&#92;Music&#92;JazzGuitar&#92;data&#92;gmclass.exe

I had to put:

&#92;Progra~1&#92;Music&#92;JazzGu~1&#92;data&#92;gmclass.exe

The four files which have to be in the top level directory are:
AUTORUN.INF
LICENSE.TXT
GMCLASS_.ASC
GMCLASS_.EXE

and a directory:
DATA

Thanks Again

Alisdair,

If you've copied the whole CD to a directory, there will be a file
in the
top level directory called "pmclass.asc", or something else with
the .asc
extension (I only have the Piano Master Class). Edit that file in
Notepad
or something to point to the executable file in the directory below.

Example for Jazz Piano Master Class:
I have a directory called "c:&#92;stuff" (not very original I know).
So I copied the whole CD for Volume 1 to a directory
called "c:&#92;stuff&#92;jpmc1"
(I think you want to use less than 8-character names)

In that directory are the files:
AUTORUN.INF
LICENSE.TXT
PMCLASS.ASC
PMCLASS.EXE

and a directory:
DATA

I edit the "PMCLASS.ASC" file to read:
&#92;stuff&#92;jpmc1&#92;data&#92;pmclass_.exe

Notice no disk name. This allows me to launch the pmclass.exe file
from
that top directory and run the program.
Should work the same for the Guitar one.

Good luck,
John
