Happy Friday!

Sunny Day
© 2017 Kenny Leverett

I don’t think I’ve ever seen a bluer sky
There’s no clouds here in our way
So many people pass us by
But you’re the only one that I see today

And if I can speak my mind
I can’t hide what’s inside
That you are my sunny day

I knew I was waiting
Waiting for someone
And so many times I wanted to just give up
I didn’t think I’d ever really find the one
But then you appeared and I knew real love

There’s no clouds here in our way
Now that you are here to stay
Girl you are my sunny day

I don’t think I’ve ever seen a bluer sky

HI Kenny,

What we've enjoyed about your music recently is the variety in style. You have a real nice mix of laid back and high energy in this one. Your guitar work sounds great and your gritty voice gives this a pleasant but biting edge. As always, we enjoyed uit a bunch. Best to you.

Alan & Di

PS: Happy Friday to you, too!

Kenny,
Nice one! There`s a loose rocking feel to this that reminded me of post-Beatles McCartney and the happy vibe is complimented by those harmonies- love the whoops!
Very enjoyable.

Really nice rocker - great backing with a excellent strong vocal.
All came together very nicely.

Very cool sound on this, Kenny.

The guitars all work nicely together.

A powerful rock vocal. The woop is great! (seems some "breakup" with the harmonies on "sunny.." - though that might be an accumulation of "rasps").

You are on a tear. And always SO catchy. you have a real knack for that (the way Elvis Costello always did).

Kenny, Great rocker. Super vocal. I also thought the harmonies were distorted. I also loved the woop. Another really catchy write. Good job! Tom

thanks Alan & Di,

I appreciate the kind words and the listen

Kenny,

Very nice rock song.
Well composed as always.
We do think however that the mix has slightly too much hi frequency in it.
But that's just a small nit wink

Robert


Robert, I appreciate that, wow! McCartney (I wish)

I was trying to convey joy, thanks for noticing the whoops

I was happy that I wouldn't have to sing it again!

I think an upbeat, happy, simple love song is hard to write

maybe the hardest for me, so I really appreciate your comments

#TipTuesday - Band-in-a-Box® for Windows Ear Training!

Do you want to develop your pitch, rhythm, and melody recognition? Check out the great ear training games 'Music Replay' and 'Pitch Invasion' included with Band-in-a-Box® for Windows!

Access these when you select the Practice button in the program and choosing to "Launch" either of these from the menu that appears. You can also access these if you open the main "Practice Central..." selection from the same Practice menu. The Practice Window offers the user easy access to different Playalong features (like Soloing Trade 4's, Chord Breaks, Guitar Tutor, etc.), tempo adjustments, 101 Riffs, Ear Training games, and more!

What is Music Replay?
Music Replay focuses on developing three musical skills:
Replay Note helps to develope pitch recognition skills
Replay Rhythm developes the ability to recognize and play different rhythms.
Replay Melody combines Note and Rhythm - 1 bar melodies are played, and the user must play them back with the correct pitch and rhythm!

What is Pitch Invasion?
In the feel of a classic arcade game, "aliens" decent an your planet with the hopes of stealing your 15 instruments - and you can't let them! How do you destroy them? Match the pitch the alien is playing before it hits the ground! The more aliens you destroy, the faster they move! This challenging (and fun!) game also has an App available on iTunes.

New to Band-in-a-Box®? Beginners Forum Available!

Launched last year, our Beginners Forum is a great place for new users to post their questions - there are more than 250 threads so far!

#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!

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.
