Hi John
. . .the program contained arrangements by Oliver
Gannon of named standards which they then got into difficulty

released
with original tunes, based on standard harmonies, so called
contrafacts. For Example:

Master Jazz Guitarist
#38 - Roamin' based on "Have You Met Miss Jones"

Has anyone gone through these programs and worked out what the
original tunes are that they are based on ? I think it would be
great
if we could put a list together of the tunes.

---alisdair
I agree. Here's a few to start; if somebody else will contribute,
I'll find some more:

12 - Girl from Ipanema
14 - How High The Moon
21 - Satin Doll
22 - Sweet Georgia Brown
23 - Blues w/ chord variations
24 - Corcovado
25 – Autumn Leaves
26 - Stella by Starlight
27 - Honeysuckle Rose
28 - Rhythm Changes
30 – "A" Train
36 – Bluesette
41 - Just Friends
49 - Another You

the other preferences stay as you set them when you exit BiaB.

Hi. I use BiaB for practice. I like to bring up chord progressions without
melodies in many keys, and try to jam along. BiaB is a great tool, and you
can download hundreds of good files from this site. Note that there are 6
(I think) jazz/standards folders. Some good stuff in there. Then you can
go to Notes Norton's site and download more, and he sells some great fake
books. Notes page also has links to other pages that have links for
download.
Good luck, have fun.

Peter.
Peter,
When you click on the Intro button, it automaticaly generates a 4
bar "Intro" chord progression that is added at the begining of the
song. The rest of the song is shifted so the begining of the chorus
begins at bar 5. This "Intro" is generated randomly and can be
regenerated again and again until you find one you like.
Once the "Intro" is generated a style change can be made at any bar.
If you want to make style changes (etc.) in the 2nd, 3rd, etc
choruses, you must first use "Unfold(convert to 1 BIG chorus" located
in the "EDIT" drop down menu. Once unfolded you can select A or B,
add a rest or shot, and change styles at any bar.
The "Intro" is a 4 bar chord progression and not a style variation as
A and B are.
At any bar you can choose A or B variation (left click), and/or an
alternate style (F5), as well as use push(es), rest(s) and shot(s)
(right click).
I hope this answers your questions.

Here is one way, there may be others:

Instead of repeating the chorus, write the song in BiaB without using repeats
(assuming your song in no longer than 255 bars). That way you can assign each
chorus a different style.

I try to avoid using repeats in BiaB. It is easy to copy Ctrl+C and paste
Ctrl+P sections of music in BiaB (like most windows programs). This gives me
more control over the song and I can change the style, tempo, etc.

about melodies and biab

Andrew Black <willboone@...>
 

well, i am of the opinion that in order to truely
study a song, you must first master the melody.
structured improvisation is very much centered around
the melody. therefor, unless you already have that
melody memorized, it is quite necessary.

but i also understand that musicians deserve to be
paid for their work.

that is why i advocate a free distribution of files
with melodies with the explicit understanding that it
is STRICTLY for educational reasons. Meaning, if you
are gonna perform these songs, either at an open mic,
recital, or with your combo, you MUST BUY THE MUSIC.

im not typing this with the *wink wink, nudge nudge*
infliction at all. im completely serious. When i was
in High school, all of our district and allstate
pieces were copyed from the Ferling book (im a sax
player) under the explicit instructions that they
would be destroyed after the audition was over. I
believe the same thing with the fakebooks with
melodies on my page. After you are done working on
these songs, delete them or buy the fakebook.

im going to put links on my page of a few places you
can go to purchase most of these songs.

the biab project webpage is:

www.geocities.com/thebiabproject


peace

The easy way is to convert the BIAB song into one long chorus, so if you
are asking for three choruses, simply copy the song two more times, so
that rather than one 32-bar chorus which gets played 3 times, you will
have one 96-bar song, which gets played once. Be sure to change the
ending bar number.

Then you can use the F5 key to change the style for any of the choruses.

Unfortunately, I don't have BIAB on this machine, so I can't experiment.

The "hard way" might be to convert the whole song to one chorus (there is a menu item to convert the song into this format, expanding all the chrouses into one long song). You can then make style changes as appropriate.

That's got to be easier than exporting to another program.

Steve

Re: FAKE BOOK (Norton)

Kenny Danielson <kendan@...>
 

Bob is quite correct, again.

Julie Andrews sang some "jazz" tunes in a trial balloon disk. Someone
must have told her that jazz is sung slightly behind the beat because she
was continually so late I thought the band would be packed up and gone
by the time she finished. The formula didn't work. Timing without
feeling sounds like a piano roll. This stuff can't be written - the lead
sheet is like abbreviated notes for a speaker.

Kenny

It has been my experience that most modern pop music melodies are not
played exactly as notated anyway. It would be practically impossible or at
least very difficult to read an exact transcription of the rhythm and
melodic ornaments a lead singer or instrumentalist plays. Quite often, the
note played is between the dots on the paper. If you are familiar with the
way the song was played, the melody line in a fake book or on the sheet
music is enough to guide you along with the help of your memory.

Re: FAKE BOOK (Norton)

Tom Speer <rrcp@...>
 

Melodies are copyrightable, chord progressions and titles aren't.


Anyway, isn't Band-in-a-Box primarily an ACCOMPANIMENT tool? Isn't it
our job to provide the melody? At least that's how I use it, so fake
book disks with melodies wouldn't off me any attraction.
