Hi,friends ! smile

Scrolling thru the various BIAB-styles
one day I came upon this one. After
having tried some progressions this
song slowly emerged before me and I
started to put some words to it.

I did this to honour my sweet Lady Partner
Li and I hope she´ll like it !

Here are the links:

http://soundcloud.com/user-337827005/thanks-to-you

http://app.box.com/s/mlk66w2e5dlz3udi61ttt3i8s2xr1dup

The Style: PS60POP.STY
Instros: Bass: 683,Piano: 2495,RD:s Pop Calypso, Guitar:1020
Pedal: 2541, Synth Pad: 1840

...and the lyrics:

Thanks To You (Words and Music by Norman Wibe)


Why is the sky, why is the sky so blue ?
don´t you know why? - because I´m lovin´ you !
And that´s true, you know that it is true
Thanks to you!

Sun in the sky, blurs the sight of my eye
clouds driftin´by, are dissipatin´dry
You know why ? As the years go slowly by
our tie´s a stronger tie
that´s no lie !

You know my darling that I love you so
more than you know, yes I do
and that´s true, our love will ´paint the sky
from shades of gray into clearest blue
Thanks to you

Love came our way, yes it came to stay
now we do pray, it´ll stay that way
sky´s so bright, and oh so full of light
feels allright !

You know my darling that I love you so
more than you know, yes I do
and that´s true, our love will ´paint the sky
from shades of gray into clearest blue,
Thanks to you !

Recorded using BIAB and Mixcraft pro 7
and Stagg Mic! compressor and reverb used

Cheers
Dani

Great vocals and harmony. You are at the top of putting out some of the most romantic themed songs here on the forum. Regardless of the style you choose, it's always uniquely you. I like this one a lot.

Charlie

Hi, Charlie !:))


It is very nice of you
to bestowe those kind words
on me, I am grateful for that 1
You know, it is somehow easier
to write these love songs
than songs with other themes
though I have done such tunes also !
don´t really know if this has to
do with my current life situation
with a Lady companion that I love !


Cheers
Dani

Janice said she imagined a man singing to his love on a quiet beach. She also said the harmonies are lush and lovely. And then she said the melody was wonderful and that she loved the sentiment.

And I said I agree!

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.
