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.

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!

Marvelous song Dan.

What a great tribute to Li.

Your harmonies worked well, and always enjoy your chord progressions.

Another Great job

Dani, cool retro sound. Kind of a cross of Roy Orbison and the Beach Boys (More of the latter). Enjoyable listen! Great job. Torrey

Head to Chapter 14: User Programmable Functions within the online manual, and you'll learn more about programmable features like:

The StyleMaker
Create brand-new styles or edit existing styles!

Making RealDrums Styles
Template file included! You can either record a drummer, or you can piece together a wave file using drum loops!

The Harmony Maker
Create or edit your own (or existing) harmonies!

The Soloist Maker and The Melodist Maker
Define your own Soloists or Melodists in whichever style you'd like!

The Guitarist Maker
The program will intelligently arrange any melody to a guitar chord solo by inserting real guitar voicings throughout the piece. There are many preloaded Guitarists to choose from, or you can customize existing Guitarists’ settings or make your own Guitarists from scratch using this feature.

#TBT Band-in-a-Box® 2017 Review - Software for Learning Saxophone

McGill Music Sax School posted a video review of Band-in-a-Box® 2017 for Windows last year, stating "I love using software to help learn saxophone. One of my favourite programs is Band-in-a-Box.

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac - Importing MIDI Files

Did you know that Standard MIDI files can be read in to the Melodist or Soloist track within Band-in-a-Box? You can use all of the MIDI File, or select channels or a specific range of bars, using these steps:
1. Melody | Import Melody from MIDI File to select a MIDI file from disk using the file dialog.
2. Melody | Import Melody from Clipboard - when the MIDI data is already copied from another program to the
clipboard.

A new window will open, asking for additional criteria - which channels, # of bars to offset..., # of bars to import, include lyrics, include patch changes - and more! Head to our online manual Chapter 10: Working with MIDI to learn more!
