Always loved the Platters. Stunning vocals & harmonies, so here's a medley of Platters songs I've done.
Only you, My prayer & twighlight time. Thanks in advance for comments.
I'll post details of real tracks used if anyone's interested.

That was excellent Furry. I loved how you did the backing for this. Was that made with Biab or a midi file?

I enjoyed listening to your amazing talent friend. Way to go !!

All tracks are real tracks. Can't remember exactly the ones I used as I havn't kept the biab file.
Don it was actually quite a tricky one to get the changes right.
Thanks for the comments

Great.

Hey, if I make it to April, I'm heading that way.

Going to Islay, probably hire a car in York. If we can swing it going to the wife's home in Colonsay, then off to Skye to make the trifecta.

Leave here the day before Easter Fri. to Heathrow. 4 nights in London. Need to go south to Dover to see the future 'inlaws.'. Then back to London and York by rail. Then Amsterdam, Belgium, Flanders, and Paris.

One Grandfather wounded badly in near London in WW2, the other near Paris in WW1. Want to visit both, plus the places from whence we came......hope it's a civilised as here.

john c, i have a great book called "spikin doric" that you would really appreciate in the event that you should stray to far north, lol. if you want a few examples just post back. it's quite humorous.

yes, graham, i meant to complement your beautiful part of the world. btw, lochs look exactly like lakes.

Don, The Doric is spoken in the North EAST of Scotland in Aberdeenshire. It's almost like its own language in a way. As you head nearer to Inverness-shire the Aberdeen ' twang' disappears and you'll find Inverness folk ( Invernessians ) have their own accent. Much of it has gone sadly with so many incomers from Eastern Europe.
As you leave Inverness and head westwards then the accent changes again. The people of Skye, Lochalsh and all along the west coast have a lovely soft spoken lilt to their voice, almost musical. Up in the far north of Scotland The accent changes again, in Shetland, it's almost like another country, even the dances are faster there than on the mainland. For such a small country, Scotland has a heck of a lot of regional variations, not just in their accents but in cooking, lifestyle and dress wear.
I'm not sure if it's on youtube, but this funny monologue IS on spotify by the late Andy Stewart. Andy pokes gentle fun at the various accents of Scotland.

My great grandparents spoke Gaelic, and English when required. My grandfather understood Gaelic and went to the Gaelic services until they ended in '62. I do remember that my Mom's aunts and uncles all referred to the babies as "bonnie wee lambies". And they sang Gaelic lullabies, wish I remembered which ones. Ach weil.

I should start planning my Burns supper.

you'd need to do a google & see what haggis is. It'd take too long for me to explain.
The traditional way to eat it is boiled with mashed potatos & turnip.
I've cooked up my own way of having haggis.
Fry some good fatty bacon with onion. Add the haggis and some ketchup some sliced pickled beets, soy sauce and cook for a few mins. Into a casserole dish and let it cool.
Cook some potatos carrots & turnip ( swedes ) and let them get cold. Spread over the top of the cold meat mixture and into the oven for about 30 mins till it browns.

Save Notation Window as a Video with Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac

Did you know... Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac allows you to save the Notation Window as a video? What a great way to share your songs with users, and LEARN from the notation as you listen!

From the program manual:
[Save As] | Save as video
-In the Make Notation Video dialog, select a track at the upper left corner. (Note: The dialog title says “Make Chord Sheet Video” until you select a track.)
-You can also set the dimension (width/height) of the video and select the number of frames per second and a specific codec.
-Press the [OK - Render Video] button to start rendering the video. When the video has been created, press the [Show Video File] button.
-You can then double click on the file to watch the rendered video.

Note: A special use of this feature is to combine a Video RealTracks (new with version 2018) with the corresponding notation in a single video. This creates an educational video, which shows the actual performance with notation/tab, playing over your chord progression! To do this, right-click on the Master button or one of the track buttons at the top of the main screen and select Render Video(s) from the menu.
