New Soundcloud file:

Have a nice funky day all of you !!:))


Cheers
Dani

The style is Fusion shuffle 2 and recorded through zoom H4n to mixcraft 6
And the lyrics to this experimental tune:

FUNKY SONG (Music and words by Dani)

Song,
I´m gonna write a song
a funky song to go with you along
to put a smile on every face
just listen to the beat of the base
with a funky song, you can´t go wrong
and if you don´t share my view
I´m gonna rest my case

Well,
I´m gonna do it well
what I´ll do is not for me to tell
but I will use every trick of course
and bring it all home with a force
and I don´t care a darn too
if it´s extremely hard for me to sell

Hey, what lovely chords do appear to me
Hey, let us transpose a little higher you see

and low

Where,
will I be goin´ from here
there or here or even everywhere
I don´t know where I´m goin´ today
It maybe clears up during the day
and if you don´t hear from me
I´ll be having some fun
with my funk to share

Hey, what lovely chords do appear to me
Hey, let us transpose a little higher you see

and low

Oh,
I think it´s time to go
but I hope the show has had the kind of flow
that you connect with this funky ol´ style
so get your kicks and dig for a while
as I´m not sure I´ll return with a better one we won´t know
Time for me to go……fade away

Hi Dani.

Another song and another chance to show just how versatile you are. From the title, I was expecting the Average White Band, but ended up with Al Jarreau!

Lovely smooth jazz-funk production, just as professional as ever.

Can't wait to see what you do next.

ROG.

Cool!! Do you just use the harmony generator to generate the female version?

Dear Jo !

As I am actually a second base
I use my falsetto for the "female" upper voices !
You may know that all male barbershop tenors
use falsetto as it would be absolutely impossible to
reach as high notes as is required by the arrangements
without using falsetto. To my own surprise I have
found out that many bases have very good falsettos and
then there are those guys like Tim Waurick who can sing
9 octaves !! (check him out on utube) !!

Cheers
Dani

Dani,

A song about writing a song. Very clever.
Loved the line "so get your kicks and dig for a while as I´m not sure I´ll return with a better one we won´t know."

I liked the way you put the tracks together, the vox and sweet harmonies too. It has a cool uplifting aura.

Enjoyed it very much.

Hi, Josie !

Thank you for your kind comments
very much appreciated ! I have
always liked this type of music
so I guess I am drawn to it ?
The lyrics are always difficult
for me, but I feel honoured for
your kind remarks on them too !

Hi, Guenter ! smile

Thank you for our kind comments !
Yes, (lol) I guess you are right
in the sense that I can sing bass
and tenor, but the middle range
voices are the most difficult
for me ! smile Yes,I grew up with
The BB:s music running in my ears (Lol) !

Cheers
Dani

User Blog - How To Record a Cover Song Using Band-in-a-Box and RealBand

Joanne Cooper's final blog post for 2017, How to record a cover song using Band-in-a-Box and RealBand is a must-read!

Joanne summarizes the steps she took to produce her cover of "Old Lang Syne" - her final result was posted to the User Showcase Forum: Listen to Auld Lang Syne

Announcing…The Birth of a Song (w/Floyd Jane)

We are excited to announce the release of a new project: The Birth of a Song (w/Floyd Jane)

Songwriter Floyd Jane shows the songwriting process from inspiration to performance and publication: http://www.pgmusic.com/?vid=IYMMZVvQdCw

The idea for this project came about when many members on this forum and elsewhere were asking questions about the song writing process. There are many aspects, and many parts of it necessary to create a song, get it arranged, performed, and then published on the internet. So we asked the great songwriter Floyd Jane, who is a regular member on this forum, if he could help. Floyd agreed and was even able to collaborate with other forum members, Janice and Bud. The result is this video we put together that you can see on YouTube or Facebook, called "The Birth of a Song (w/Floyd Jane)".

We hope this video helps other songwriters with their songwriting process, and also shows them tools that are available to them along the way. Also, we mention this User Showcase Forum, and hope to see many new aspiring or accomplished songwriters join this community :blush:

A big Thank You to Floyd for sharing your knowledge with the community and making this possible. And to Janice and Bud for your great collaboration!

Here is Floyd's original forum post for his song "A Little Bit Of Me": http://www.pgmusic.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=433190

Check out Floyd / Janice & Bud’s music here:

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Windows - 49 Requests Fulfilled!

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Windows boasts more than 50 new features... and a lot of the new features fill the requests posted by program users!

Some of these include:

Q. I am learning guitar. The RealTracks are very helpful in that I can hear great guitar players, and most of the tracks have tab and notation as well. But there is much more to guitar, could you include some videos of some of the RealTracks Artists? Because I would learn much more from seeing a guitarist than just hearing them.

A. We have a major new feature called "Video RealTracks." These work and sound like RealTracks, but you get to see a video of the Guitarist (or whatever instrument) playing as well. The amazing thing is that this works with any chord progression you type in. So, if you want to learn to play like the great guitarist Brent Mason, for example, you can type in chords to any progression you are interested in, and then hear and see a video of Brent soloing over your progression. Now you can learn much quicker, as it helps to see how a musician is performing, as well as to hear.

Q. I love the Audio Chord Wizard, as it figures out chords from mp3 and other audio files. But it is a separate program from Band-in-a-Box, and I can’t go back and forth to change things easily.

A. We've solved that, as BiaB 2018 has integrated the Audio Chord Wizard directly into Band-in-a-Box. Now load an audio file into BiaB, open the Audio Edit Window – Audio Chord Wizard mode, and let it automatically figure out the bar lines and chords for the song.

Q. I like to save songs as MP3 files, and can't do this with BiaB, except a very low quality one, 64kbps.

A. We've improved this, by adding support for Windows Media Foundation. This allows you to save MP3 in your choice of resolutions, up to very high 320mpbs. Better still, it works on current versions of Windows (Windows 7,8,10) and also on older versions too (Vista, XP).

We've answered 49 questions - review all of these answers on our forum post "49 of your Problems solved? List of 49 Requests fulfilled in Band-in-a-Box 2018" here.

All of the new features in Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Windows can be reviewed at http://www.pgmusic.com/bbwin.new.htm
