I don't think I've seen your posts on the forum much yet! In-case I haven't welcomed you yet, welcome Belladonna! I am really curious about the story behind this one, if there is one, as the lyrics are quite poetic.

Thanks for the share!

Dear Ms. "Belladonna"...

If that was your voice I heard singing the lyrics to "Playin' With Fool's Gold", I would say it was the best thing about the song, aside from the beautifully introspective lyrics.

Such densely-woven poetry needs a clear, unaffectedly emotive singing voice to draw a listener into its layered mysteries. Your voice possesses those qualities.

In my opinion, the best written lyrics always have a "beating heart", a line or two of words that capture, crystallize and project the essence, or the truth of what the lyrics "are about":

"A woman not strong enough to rise above
A man whose heart’s devoid of love"


That surely could be the clearest description of what the essential problem is in male/female relationships, generally speaking.

Some very cool writing here!! Great images-very moving. I would try to have a bit more of a motif in the verse music. Also, I think the vocal has too much reverb-a little soupy. Nicely done song!! Take care. Greg

Save Notation Window as a Video with Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac

Did you know... Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac allows you to save the Notation Window as a video? What a great way to share your songs with users, and LEARN from the notation as you listen!

From the program manual:
[Save As] | Save as video
-In the Make Notation Video dialog, select a track at the upper left corner. (Note: The dialog title says “Make Chord Sheet Video” until you select a track.)
-You can also set the dimension (width/height) of the video and select the number of frames per second and a specific codec.
-Press the [OK - Render Video] button to start rendering the video. When the video has been created, press the [Show Video File] button.
-You can then double click on the file to watch the rendered video.

Note: A special use of this feature is to combine a Video RealTracks (new with version 2018) with the corresponding notation in a single video. This creates an educational video, which shows the actual performance with notation/tab, playing over your chord progression! To do this, right-click on the Master button or one of the track buttons at the top of the main screen and select Render Video(s) from the menu.
