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

User Tip - Differences Between the 'Regular' and Audiophile Version... #TipTuesday

Long time program user and forum member Matt Finley had shared his tip regarding the Audiophile version of Band-in-a-Box earlier this year, and it's still valid today!

If you've ever wondered what the difference between the 'regular version' of Band-in-a-Box and the Audiophile version, make sure you read through his forum post: Tip: differences between the 'regular' and audiophile version - it's well written, and always great to hear about the program from fellow users!

The Audiophile Version includes the entire contents of the EverythingPAK and adds the uncompressed WAV or AIFF files for all the included RealTracks & RealDrums! Learn more about the Audiophile version: www.pgmusic.com/bbwin.packages.audiophile.htm

Band-in-a-Box® User Feedback - Wow!

There are so many ways to get in touch with people these days... phone, email, social networking, etc.... so of course we hear more feedback from program users these days!
...and here's what they're saying:

"I discovered Band in a Box about a year ago. I hesitated several times before purchasing it as I couldn't quite believe it was going to be as good as the hype. I eventually relented and I can honestly say, it's an incredible program and does some amazing things. As a songwriter, it's an indispensable tool and I can't imagine not having it."
-Vince C.

"I bought the first band in a box for my Atari 1040 ST and I used it for at least 10 years before upgrading to a Windows computer. After real drums, and then real tracks, came out I have upgraded every December since. The program is absolutely inspired and inspirational."
-Kirk O.

"Not everyone can find or afford real musicians to assist them when writing songs - and if working from home, as many songwriters do, there might not be room for them. Band In A Box does the next best thing and takes recordings of real musicians performing, then makes the material available pretty much in real time, in a form that adapts to your own composition by following the chord sequences. Hard to explain simply, but fairly amazing in practice."
-Steve C.

"Great tool for musicians - and the drummer keeps a steady beat!!"
-Maurice A.

"Great for learning new songs. I was weak on country rock songs and with the combination of using Riffstation and BIAB I am able to creat my own backup track for live performance and practicing songs with easier chording... Thanks PG!"
-Laurent C.

"I have it since 2001, use it all the time, great program!"
-John F.

"Thank you Band in a Box. I am a songwriter, and don't play several instruments, so I love being able to wear 2 hats and write and produce, and then later record vocals... You have probably saved me months/years on my project. Excellent tool. Thanks again!"
-Randy A.

"Didn't think I would ever go down that road but got roped into it by another muso friend, bought it and now loving it!"
-Fred P.

Thank you for sharing this Joanne!

Woodshedding with Band-in-a-Box® #TrainYourBrainDay

Don't let the Woodshedding feature in Band-in-a-Box® pass you by - it's a great way to hone your musical skills! The Woodshedding feature within Band-in-a-Box is easily accessed within the Practice toolbar of the program. Change the settings to fit your needs... the idea is that you start off with a slow tempo, playing the part perfectly, and keep this up as the song tempo increases - what a great way to learn!

We added 12-Key "Woodshedding" RealTracks with Band-in-a-Box 2017! These have been recording in all 12 keys, so you can see what a pro would play over an Ab chord, and you won't see them play on a G transposed up to an Ab, and carefully transcribed notation, with correct bend/hammer-ons, pull-offs, and slides...

We have made some of these for country guitar (Brent Mason), piano (Mike Rojas), and pedal steel (Eddy Dunlap) with RealTracks Set 254!

We even have a Woodshedding - Learning to Play! Forum where you can post anything to do with learning to play any musical instrument (including vocals)!
