One Headlight - The Wallflowers

I never changed the intro fill cause I always use count in. Anyway just make sure you Transition just before the 1st verse starts and all should be well.

Hi Brandon. Thanks for sharing. Could you make a little extra effort to post your songs to the Resources thread? Makes it easier for forum users to find songs if they’re in one location.

Thanks persist sorry not sure about forum rules yet. I definitely will post to the Resources thread. Just to clarify we are supposed to post in both places then?

Aashideacon is probably the role model of how it should be done. He uploads the song or drum kit to the Resources thread http://mybeatbuddy.com/forum/index.php?resources/al-wilson-show-and-tell-with-bass.158/

and he advertises it in the appropriate genre of music thread: http://mybeatbuddy.com/forum/index.php?threads/al-wilson-show-and-tell-with-bass.4803/ and he usually accompanies the song with a one-page cheat sheet.
A summary of his process:

  • he uploads the song to Resources and copies the URL (the Resources thread does not allow uploading of pdf type files)
  • the URL is pasted in a new genre-specific Beats thread along with the cheat sheet (one page pdf with lyrics and chords)

There are other users like Phil that create songs and assemble cheat sheets and then make them available http://mybeatbuddy.com/forum/index.php?threads/one-toke-over-the-line-ludwig-w-bass-onepress-brewer-and-shipley.5690/

In an ideal world, this forum would allow uploading of pdf files to the Resources thread as well so a user would not have to post in two locations. It takes a little bit of extra effort on users parts and not all are willing to make that extra effort. Hope you will, though.

Appreciate your contributions to and your interest in the forum, Brandon.

Any thoughts on rewriting forum code to allow pdf uploads to resources? That’s what’s keeping me from putting stuff in Resources… Twice the work.

I agree. Can BB Support get the web master to enable pdf uploads to Resources?

Thanks for info I will link to resources from now on.

I try to upload my midi’s w the sng, but it won’t allow the .mid extension as an upload … (firefox browser)
…altho I see others can post theirs…(confusing).
I change mine to .txt … but, it doesn’t seem worthwhile
if the receiver of midi doesn’t understand the ‘changeover’ process.

Hi rknrne: are you trying to upload your midi files to: http://mybeatbuddy.com/forum/index.php?resources/categories/midi-files.2/

If so, it should allow it and if it still does not allow you to, it may be a problem with the permissions allowed by the forum.

An additional step i do is copy the link where i advertise the resource, and paste it back into the resource. that way if you go there, you can get back to whatever discussion. I think they should enable the discussions on the resource itself. that way you can get feedback and give updates, etc, all in one place.

I started posting to resource today … Of course, I did it the way you just described. Why, if there is a section for beats, is there also a resource section? Seems to me that Resource might have been meant for something else? I assume this forum is a canned piece of software adapted for the purpose?

The Resources was turned on later, once it was shown that the Beats forums weren’t really useful, especially as each forum got older than a few weeks.

sorry Persist, I missed this q , …
I didn’t know that page existed …thanks.
my problem was in the ‘Beats page’ itself …everyone seemed to be uploading their midi’s to that page,
when I entered them …it said the .mid was acceptable …
but, but did not upload . so, I changed the ext to (eg…txt)…
& felt it redundant …if I couldn’t figure out what I was doing, …who else would ! lol
no big deal … I’ll try again.

can someone repost this beat? how is this forum supposed to work if every beat i click on is no longer available. they should either delete the thread or repost the file. or better yet don’t remove them in the first place. otherwise its just dysfunctional and frustrating.

Yes, I agree it’s frustrating. This link should help you (hint, it’s in Phil’s folders and the link is within the thread) BeatBuddy (Discourse) Forum - Error

i was not able to find one headlight in downloads from phil or stu. can you point me in the right direction?

Pretty sure it was in this folder of songs: My folder ... M through P 2017-12-16 - M through P

You have to download and then File > Import > Folder
