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!

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!!!
