Hi, friends !:))

I wrote this tune as I wanted to
see if I still could get a sound
out of me that in some diminutive
way would resemble surf music.

As I did it I came to realize that
my gear is not sophisticated enough
to get the smooth sound on the vocals
that I wanted so, I just have to keep
experimenting !

The Style used is BeachCar.STY, a style that
I think I have used sometimes before, but maybe not with
the same instruments all through.

The instros here are:

Bass:34, Elecpiano:6, Drums: RD:S country shuffle, Guitar: 26
VoiceOohs: GM2 54/1, Strings:51, Strings 2: 1641 Synth Pad

Recorded with mixcraft 7 pro on my laptop. Compressor and Reverb
used.Here are the links:

http://soundcloud.com/user-337827005/surf-is-on-the-rise

http://app.box.com/s/f00x4wlbh2n1hntprptmdk6xhw85bzl2

...and the lyrics:

SURF IS ON THE RISE (MUSIC AND LYRICS BY NORMAN WIBE)

Grab your board and get up on board, now let´s take my ford today
surf is on the rise, guys
let´s go where the skies meet
the sea at your feet
as the tidal waves are breaking on the bay

Won´t be long, til we surf along, throwin´our troubles away
let us find ourselves right there, where
all the waves are high enough
it´s gonna be so tough
as they wildly break upon us all the way

Can you hear, the mighty sound, taste the salty air
feel the water cooling you both high and low, from top til toe
nothing though will slow you on the go, so

Grab your board and get up on board, now let´s take my ford today
surf is on the rise, guys
let´s go where the skies meet
the sea at your feet
as the tidal waves are breaking on the bay

Can you hear, the mighty sound, taste the salty air
feel the water cooling you both high and low, from top til toe
nothing though will slow you on the go, so
nothing though will slow you on the go !


Cheers
Dani

Nice surf feel (the harmonies make it) - impressive use of layered vocals - well done.

Your vocals sound pretty smooth to me and the song is upbeat and catchy.I enjoyed listening - a musical sunny break from the Canadian winter!

Hey Dani,

Very entertaining! I always love up-beat and happy music. You had me tapping my feet (both of them) from start to finish.

It's two vigorous thumbs up from me! Great job smile

All the best,
Noel

Band-in-a-Box® User Feedback - Thank You!

Take a look at some of the recent feedback we've received from program users just like you:

"I started using Band-in-a-Box October 2016 . It's been money very well spent. I'm now nearing the finish of my first All Originals Cd. I let a local musician hear some of the songs and he was amazed at the quality. Guys it takes time and effort to learn but its worth it 100%!"
-John S.

"Amazing RealTracks I have used these on 30 or more songs! Some even used complex chords that amazed me how well the Banjo still worked. Unbelievable Software! All the backup band you will ever need no matter what your skill level!"
-Tom C.

"Like lots of others I use it all the time, putting in the chords of a tune, choosing the right style and tempo is a godsend, I'm a jazz musician and playing tunes and improvising with chords in front of you is brilliant, less than an hour ago I was playing my tenor sax along with my Band-in-a-Box backing band."
-Barrie M.

"I love Band-in-a-Box! I use it every day to practice, compose, and teach guitar lessons. Keep up the great work, PG!"
-Brian P.

"A Great business....a great program and a fantastic way to easily create your own songs....or backing tracks to play along with.....a program that everyone should get...."
-Leonard A.

"Band-in-a-Box has been one of my favorite programs since it first came out. Wonderful concept, very well executed."
-Doug S.

"Amazing Software. Use it all the time. Makes very convincing backing tracks!!!"
-Paul P.

Thank you everyone!
