Hi, friends !

I do apologize for not having
been able to follow up on the site
too often ! My other commitments
have just overwhelmed me.

I did also experience something
I haven´t done before i.e. I just
lost myself and my voice ! I wrote
some 5 pieces and could not finalize
not one of them as I probably wrote
them too complicated or I just could
not produce the voices needed for them.

So, I thought I had to make it somewhat easier
and so I wrote this one but even this one had
to be adjusted at least three times (downward)
Maybe this has to do with age ?

In any case, here is FINAL RIDE
based on the style: CTRYPOP.STY
Instros: Bass: 1208, Guitar 1: 405, Drumes = Realdrums = Nashville
Even 8/5 Hihat, ride, Pedal Steel: 603, Guitar2: 629
Synthpad: 1840

AND ON BOX:

Recorded with Mixcraft 7 Pro and stagg Mic on
my Lenovo Laptop.

Here are the lyrics:

FINAL RIDE (MUSIC & LYRICS BY NORMAN WIBE)

Hi, guys, weather´s so nice, and the surf´s on the rise
grab your boards, run to the oceanside
for a final ride
just can´t hide, the tears in my eyes

It´s been so great, you know that everything nice, has to come to an end
yes we´ll have to leave, that´ll be our impending fate
so don´t, be late
don´t be late for the final ”bend”

Let´s go surfin´, a final time, surf right soon, mornin´till noon
it´s been a great great boon, yeah it´s been a great great boon
Oh what fun we´ve had to ride those waves in the sun,
in that hot ,shinin´sun, gettin all that copper bronze tan
copper bronze tan

You know we´ve been right here, yes we´ve been right here, all summer long
and now we´re finally gettin´, rid of the foam
home, sweet home
time to leave this bay, singin´ along

Let´s go surfin´, a final time , surf right soon, mornin´till noon it´s been a great great boon, yeah it´s been a great great boon
Oh what fun we´ve had to ride those waves in the sun,
in that hot shinin´sun, gettin all that copper bronze tan
copper bronze tan

Sorry to say, but season´s finally over, for the rest of the year
it leaves us dreamin´, dreamin´ for another return
turn, til´next turn
we´ll have to live, with all those sweet, mem´ries to share
we´ll have to live, with all those sweet, mem´ries to share

Cheers
Dani

Dani,

Nice song - I enjoyed the end of summer lyrics.
Your voice sounds fine and those trademark harmonies are smooth. Your vocal range is much greater than most of us,so you have a ways to go before you meet us in the middle!

Hey Dani,

It's great to see you back posting again. The surfin', summer fun lyrics definitely get the thumbs up from me.

I agree with Robert. There's nothing wrong with your voice. As far as I could tell, your vocal cords sounded just as good as they always do.

I enjoyed my listen!

All the best,
Noel

Another great delivery Dani.

You've captured the Surfin' style once again, and it was interesting to hear the pedal steel sitting nicely throughout the mix.

Nothing wrong with the vocal delivery either!

Thanks for another Dani classic.

Indeed once again you are the surfing master of the forum!
Trademark vocals and harmonies as usual. Good work!

Nice one Dani!! Fresh off your crooning Mel Torme to your Brian Wilson beach boy harmony sound. This is great. Love the melancholy of the "final ride". Great feel, and great vocals!! Take care. Greg

Hi, Floyd !


...and very many thanks for
your most kind words !
I discovered that I was
writing too complicated tunes
and had problems singing
them so I had to start from
scratch and write something
easier to sing (as I thought
before ! started to sing the
background) !!1

Cheers
Dani

Your vocals sound great to me!

This is a very smooth and easy going surf song. I liked everything about this one.

Two thumbs up

Hang ten my friend!

Beginners Help - Muting the Melody Notation

Visit our Beginners Forum, and you'll notice our amazing Forum Community helping out new program users!

Like this recent post regarding Muting the Melody Notation: http://www.pgmusic.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=458716 - Forum user Matt Finley did a great job of answering the new program user!

Our Beginners Forum really is a great resource for new program users!

Q: When I have entered chords and notation for a song, is it possible to mute the notation and just have the chords playing? This would be helpful for when I just want the chord backing track but want to read the notation.

A: There are several ways to do this. The easiest is probably to use the Mixer window and change the volume slider to zero for the Melody track. Or, hit the Mute icon on the Mixer for the Melody Track.

Another way, with more control rather than all or nothing, is to press F5 at the measure where you want to mute, and select mute or change the volume to zero. Later, press F5 and select Return to Normal, or change the volume back.

#TechTipTuesday - Band-in-a-Box® Patch Updates

If you're ever experiencing an issue with your Band-in-a-Box program, make sure you have the most recent patch update for your version - this can be done at http://www.pgmusic.com/support.updates.win.htm.

Patch updates are released frequently, and are created by our development team to fix any reported bugs, tweak existing features within the program, update demos and other files as needed, and more!

To find out which version of the program you have, visit Help | About Band-in-a-Box within the program. You will see the full version number listing as:
Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2018 (512)

The number in parentheses is the build number. As you can see, my Band-in-a-Box is up to date and will continue to stay that way because I've selected "Automatically check for updates every 7 days" within the Help | Check for Updates.... option (you can set the number of days to a different number). This window will also look to see if you're version is up to date, so you don't technically have to visit http://www.pgmusic.com/support.updates.win.htm if you didn't want to!

Once you've installed your patch update (make sure the program is closed when you're doing this), give it another try - if you are still experiencing the same issue you can report it by contacting us directly, or you can post your result to the Forum thread that also announces the patch update, like our recent Band-in-a-Box 2018 Build 512 Update (Feb 15) post.
