I need to start a biab song with 4 bars of drums only.

Can anyone tell me how to do this, or point me in the right direction to find this info in the help files.

I use biab 2004.......

Thanks,
Steve

Hi Steve. I'm not sure about your version but with my version "2009.5" I just right click on the first bar and go to "bar settings" and mute each instrument except the drums then at bar 5 right click again and return all instruments back to normal as illustrated below. I'm not sure at which version this feature became available.

Thanks for the reply Andy.

My 2004 version doesn't have the volume column on that page, but I'm looking around for a similar page.

Duhhh.... Rick's right, I forgot about the rest feature. Right click on the first bar and choose "chord settings". I tested it and it also works with real tracks too.

Thanks for your help Rick and Andy!! Very Happy
