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

FINAL RIDE ON SOUNDCLOUD:

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!

Robert

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.

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!

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac - 45 Requests Fulfilled!

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac is here, and there's more than 80 new features! We've answered some user requests with this release, including:

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 use the feature to make a video of the chord sheet from a Band-in-a-Box song. I use it to make backing tracks and upload them to YouTube. But these don't include any notation for the melody and lyrics of my songs. My viewers would like to see the melody and lyrics too. Is there a way you can include the melody in the video? I've tried recording this with screen capture programs, but it's time consuming, recording in real time, and the audio quality and sync are not that good.

A. Yes, Band-in-a-Box 2018 can do this now. You can save your song as a video of the notation track. So that includes the notation, guitar tab, and lyrics. And saving the whole video and audio just takes a few seconds, much faster than real time recording. Just load in your song with chords, melody, lyrics, and/or guitar tab, and press Save-As Notation Video. Your song will be up on YouTube in no time!

Q. I am songwriter and uses Band-in-a-Box to make backing tracks for my productions. I'm starting to make videos and upload them to YouTube. Can Band-in-a-Box help with my production videos?

A. Band-in-a-Box 2018 can now make videos with Video RealTracks, of the musicians performing the RealTracks. And they are playing along to your song's chord progression. You can include these videos in your own song performance, which adds a nice visual element.

Q. I use the Audio Harmonies in Band-in-a-Box. But I find the harmonies simplistic, in that they are mainly using chord tones. The Band-in-a-Box MIDI harmonies are more sophisticated, using passing tones. Why can't my Audio Harmonies work like that?

A. We've added support for new types of Audio Harmonies in the Audio Edit Window. These do allow you to choose any Band-in-a-Box MIDI harmony that has passing tones or sophisticated jazz voicings (adding 4 parts to make a 5-part jazz voicing for example). Band-in-a-Box automatically figures out the MIDI version of your melody so it uses this to create the harmonies.

Q. The new toolbar is nice, but needs more color options. Too much grey! How about skins?

A. We've added support for skins, and you can choose color or grey scale options for toolbar, mixer etc.

And more!!!
