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® Version 2017 for Windows Build 463 Available!

Band-in-a-Box® 2017 for Windows customers can install the latest patch update (Build 463) here: www.pgmusic.com/support_windowsupdates.htm#463

Summary of changes for Version 2017 Build 463:
Added: In the PDF manual, clicking on the Bookmarks navigation pane, Table of Contents, or Index will jump to the corresponding page. (Note: To use the navigational elements, you need to open the PDF manual in Adobe Reader.)
Fixed: When associating file types with Band-in-a-Box, the user would get the success message "File types are now registered for songs..." when the process failed.
Fixed: When unassociating file types with Band-in-a-Box, the user would get the success message "File types are now NOT registered for songs..." when the process failed.
Fixed: If opening a Band-in-a-Box song from Windows explorer, and specifically choosing the "Open" command instead of "Play", playback would start anyway.
Fixed: Band-in-a-Box might ask to associate file in Windows Explorer even if they are already set.
Fixed: Right-clicking on a Band-in-a-Box song in explorer and selecting play would not open the song.
Fixed: Associating file types only works if the exe is named "bbw.exe".
Fixed: Various Conductor hot keys were not working.
Fixed: Some number-pad keys were not working in the song memo.
Fixed: Toggling Loop Section with the 1 key would not display a message.
Fixed: With factory settings, it appears as if "Microsoft GS Wavetable Synth" is selected in the MIDI driver setup dialog even though it is not. The user might click Cancel because it appears that the driver is already selected.
Fixed: When in the MIDI driver setup dialog, clicking on Audio Settings should connect/disconnect MIDI drivers. Eg. the user might be attempting to connect to ASIO4ALL, which often does not work with the Microsoft GS Wavetable MIDI driver.
Fixed: Some RealTracks Artist Bio's typos/omissions.

(note: This patch will update Band-in-a-Box® 2017 to Build 463 from any previous 2017 build.)
