If The Sun Didn't Shine

Leon - Vocal & Lyrics
I played the guitar solos and sang a bit.

An bluesy song in a minor key about a lost love.

If the Sun Didn’t Shine

If the sun didn’t rise tomorrow
And nights were everlasting
I don’t think that I would feel any worse
Than I do right now my darling

When you said those words to me
I don’t need you anymore
Suddenly I couldn’t see
Anything worth living for

If the sun didn’t shine
If the sun didn’t shine
If the sun didn’t shine anymore

If the sun didn’t rise tomorrow
I don’t think that I would care
Cause when the sun comes up tomorrow
You no longer will be there

And without you beside me
All the meaning disappears
Without you beside me
I see only barren years

If the sun didn’t shine
If the sun didn’t shine
If the sun didn’t shine anymore

How would I pass the minutes
And the hours in the days
In a world that’s become monochrome
Only different shades of grey

If the sun didn’t rise tomorrow
And nights were everlasting
I don’t think that I would feel any worse
Than I do right now my darling

If the sun didn’t shine
If the sun didn’t shine
If the sun didn’t shine anymore

Peter,
Well that got me bopping around!
Nice deadpan vocal by Leon and some very tasty solo breaks.
Very enjoyable.

Great groove! Love the approach Leon took for the vocal, and the guitar leads are right on the money.

Nice one guys, enjoyed the listen!

Somehow this sounds a little different from your usual work.
Great guitar work as usual but I particularly like the lower sounding vocals especially in the beginning.

Very cool tune Peter. Guitar was excellent loved the vocal and backtrack. I envisioned John Belushi and the Blues Brothers playing this tune. Very cool

Leon and Peter,

Cool song! I (Alan) always love Blues Rock in minor keys. The piano track on the right pan is perfect. The vocals are clear and interpret the lyric quite nicely. Great guitar work! Great listen, guys!!!

User Tip - Midi to Keystroke "Hot Key" Win Mac (Conductor for Mac)

Forum user Pipeline shares a great 'tip' with his post Midi to Keystroke "Hot Key" Win Mac (Conductor for Mac)!

Thanks for posting to our Tips & Tricks forum Pipeline!

#TBT - Band-in-a-Box® Version 5 Article "The Software Story"

For the latest blast from the past for Band-in-a-Box, check out the article The Software Story: Band-in-a-Box by Norm Weinberg, as published in the June 1993 issue of Percussive Notes!

Imagine a group of musicians who would rehearse with you whenever you wanted, wouldn't tire of playing the same songs over and over, could play at any tempo you wanted, could learn new tunes in a matter of minutes, and never have any ego problems? Wouldn't this be an ideal musical situation for gaining experience? Band-in-a-Box to the rescue!
-Norm Weinberg

User Post - Save as Video

Earlier this week we shared information on the Save as Video feature within Band-in-a-Box.

Forum user JoanneCooper has just shared her Band-in-a-Box video using this feature! Check out her post here, or click here watch her YouTube video.

#TipTuesday - Band-in-a-Box® for Mac: Use Keystroke "Hot Key" Commands!

Hot Keys are a great way to speed up using a lot of different programs... and that includes Band-in-a-Box®!

Band-in-a-Box has keystroke "hot keys" to mute instruments or to adjust volume, panning, reverb, chorus, or bank of instrument without using the mouse, etc... in fact - there are over 100 Hot Key commands for Band-in-a-Box® for Mac!

To view them all, click here.

Band-in-a-Box® - Save as a Video!

A feature added with our Band-in-a-Box® 2015 release was the option to Save as Video. This feature is easy to use! When you're ready to save your song within Band-in-a-Box®, choose "Save as Video..." and adjut the settings if you'd like, then choose [OK - Render Video]. Once it's rendered, you can select the [Upload to YouTube], or take a look at your video first when you choose [Show Video File]. You can also choose to open this video file up in a different video program - it's your video file!

What does the video show? The chordsheet within Band-in-a-Box® just as you'd see it when the song is playing - don't worry though, the rendering of the song to video is MUCH FASTER than the duration of the song!

To see this in action, visit THIS LINK for our Support video.
