My friend Noel Adams and I co-wrote this song, based on a friend of Noel's who is a cancer survivor. It's called One More Day. All the instruments are RealTracks/RealDrums, along with some strings and brass I played with Garritan Personal Orchestra. I hope you enjoy it!

Sounds good/excellent, as I expected from the people involved. But I found it difficult to listen to, considering the subject matter, as in the past week 2 friends who also thought/hoped they were survivors have been given the bad news again. One was clear for 10+ years.

Steve / Noel,

This is excellent all around. A difficult subject to write about, but you have captured and presented it perfectly...

Hi Steve/Noel,

Very good song.
We should all do what the message says- Take one more day.

The future is just dreams, the present is reality.

Really really nice.
Everything fits very well together. (I really like the new acoustic guitar (Celtic).

Steve and Noel,

This is an absolutely beautifully written song. Both lyrically and melody-wise. One of the best I've ever heard here. To be able to write about such a subject with such grace is real talent. Simple, yet complete. Beautiful. The transition out of the bridge back into the chorus is spectacular. I applaud you both. Bravo, bravo!!!

The production, arrangement, orchestration, and singing are all... every bit as good as the writing.

WOW.

Very captivating stuff, I enjoyed it, the only thing I would suggest is that you allude to the listener the inspiration of the song in a subtle manner if possible, like adding (replacing) a line to the chorus which might go something like 'No matter what the doctors say, she'll be grateful for one more day' or some such, then we can all better understand the poignancy we are dealing with here. Just a thought.

Well done.

Hey Guys, extremely professional in every way.

Beautiful song, but which strangely left me feeling sad, rather than uplifted.

Can't fault the production and mix.

It's already been said - great job by both of you. Great writing, nice instrumentation, great build with the drums and mandolin. Lovely harmony, too.

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Thanks so very much for all the very kind words!

I normally try to take the time to comment on each post individually, but I have been working 12+ hours a day, and so have been very short on time.

This song is a difficult one due to the subject matter. All of us have been affected in one way or another by this horrible disease. My hope is that we showed proper sensitivity and respect in this offering.

Thanks to Noel (Tex) Adams for laying such a good foundation of lyrics and the structure of this song. It was a real joy to work together from across the world!

Steve

I'd like to join with Steve and say thank you to everyone who has taken the time to listen and to comment. The song presents a confronting subject and one that is difficult to write about. It's a relief to read the positive feedback.

I notice that there are many comments on the mix, production, arrangement and singing. These comments all belong to Steve. The first time I heard what he'd done with my rough ideas, I couldn't believe it! When I heard the orchestra swell at the beginning of the first chorus, a voice in my head said, "This is absolutely incredible". And that was his first, rough draft! I didn't think it was possible but it got better!!! Steve deserves the accolades for what this song became.

Once again, thank you for listening.

Regards,
Noel

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.
