What is an EXPANDED style?
Can you enter & play this 12 bar blues progression in Band-in-a-Box?
Problem #1: in bars 1, 2, 3, and 4 there is a chord both on a beat and on the 8th note before that very same beat. Band-in-a-Box will allow you to push a chord to the 8th note before a bar, but if you do, you cannot put a different chord on the first beat of the next bar.
With Norton Music's EXPANDED styles you can!
How does it work?
They say a picture is worth 1,000 words, so here is how it's entered in Band-in-a-Box...
Notice the old Windows XP version of this example? Norton Music's EXPANDED styles work on all versions of Band-in-a-Box, from 1990 to the latest Windows and Mac versions of today.
|Did I say a FREE style?
I made a simple EXPANDED demo style and song to show you how the EXPANDED styles work.
