Auld Lang Syne on Youtube

Listen or download the song from my website

Hello all

I hope it is not too early for my annual Christmas song (only this one is really a New year's one). I am going away shortly so I thought I would get it done early. It is, of course, the public domain song "Auld Lang Syne"

Realtracks are:
RealTracks in style: 1825:Bass, Electric, PopModernGrooveHeld Ev16 075
RealTracks in song: ~364:Guitar, Acoustic, Fingerpicking Ev 065
RealTracks in song: 2780:Guitar, Acoustic, Rhythm Songwriter8thsBrent Ev 085
RealDrums in style: NashBrushBalDbKEv16^1-a: Snare, HiHat , b: QuarterHat, TripletSnare
RT1757:Accordion, Rhythm Pop8ths Ev 085
Piano, Rhythm Pop16 Ev16 065 (Midi Super track)
RealDrums-ModCountry16ths^01-ClHSSK,OpHSSK
RT835:Guitar, Electric, Rhythm AltCountryRootsy Ev 075


Here is my (rather simple) take on the lyrics:

Should auld acquaintance be forgot, and never brought to mind
Should auld acquaintance be forgot, and days of auld lang syne
For auld lang syne, for auld lang syne
Should auld acquaintance be forgot, and days of auld lang syne
We too have run about the hills, and gathered up flowers fine
We wandered many weary foot since auld lang syne

We too have sorted in the brook from morning sun til night,
but the seas between us have roared and swelled since auld lang syne

For auld lang syne, for auld lang syne,
The seas between us have roared and swelled since auld lang syne

The road here is My trusted friend, and nearly a hand of thyne,
We'll take a cup of kindness yet for auld lang syne.

For auld lang syne are here, for auld lang syne,
We'll take a cup of kindness yet for auld lang syne!

Comments are most welcome!

You did an awesome job here, Joanne smile I can't believe how pretty this is! It's so gentle, and so peaceful. It's also definitely an earworm, for me at least. It's got some catchy melodies in here, and the lyrics are engaging and get stuck in your head as well.

Fantastic work! Thanks so much for sharing this with us smile

Hi Joanne.

A very gentle and wistful version of Robbie Burns poem.
Takes me back to a childhood when it was bellowed out in halls across the country at midnight.

Best wishes.

You did a really good job with this Joanne. It's hard to add much to some of the older PD tunes but your performance and the backing track made for a fresh approach. It's very pretty but has a slight" world weary" edge to it that really adds charm. Enjoy your trip and the Holidays.

I agree with my friend Floyd! You've really captured the essence of this beautiful song!! I always think of the end of It's a Wonderful Life when I hear this (which is one of my favorite films). Great job!! Take care. Greg

PowerTracks Pro Audio 2018 is Here!

PowerTracks Pro Audio 2018 is here! PowerTracks Pro Audio 2018 includes many new features and enhancements:

Windows Audio (WASAPI) driver support. This allows for low latency audio recording/playback without requiring ASIO. Note that this supports 1 stereo input plus 1 stereo output at a time. For multiple inputs/outputs, you should continue to use either MME or ASIO.

ABC Notation format support. You can save a track of notation in a popular ASCII text format to import into other programs, or you can paste this format into a user forum as a way of sending the track (usually the melody and chord symbols) to other users without having to attach a file.

The built-in Audio Chord Wizard detection in the Chords window automatically detects the chords of the song, based on the audio data from all non-muted audio tracks. This works similar to the standalone Audio Chord Wizard, except that it uses the current bar lines of the existing song.

Notation Enhancements:
-X/8 time signature support. This is a special method of displaying 6/8, 9/8, or 12/8 time signatures in the Notation window.
-The Duplicate previous chord in notation right-click menu lets you quickly duplicate the previous chord (group of notes on same peg) without having to reenter it.
-Delete highlighted notes in notation right-click menu lets you delete all highlighted notes.
-Delete all notes on this peg in notation right-click menu lets you delete all notes on the nearest peg that was clicked on.
-You can now enter Section Numbers. Previously, you could enter letters (A-Z) only, but now you can also enter numbers (1-9).

...a full list of the new features in PowerTracks Pro Audio 2018 is available at http://www.pgmusic.com/powertracks.features.htm

Band-in-a-Box® Customer Feedback - Feel The Love!

Check out some great feedback we've received on our Facebook account from program users:

"I have been using Band-in-a-Box for years. It is the anchor of my music gigs as well as my fun in my studio. I have used other software but Band-in-a-Box is my main go to."
-Jack T.

"Love Band-in-a-Box. As someone who played professionally for 20 years and retired from live performing years ago, I still love music. Band-in-a-Box allows me to create fun arrangements which I can sing over or play over. There are THOUSANDS of different variations plus you can enter any chords you like and create any chart. It's also great for creating background tracks for videos and audio content for websites, training etc. And like everything else in the world . . . it may not be right for everyone. For those who love music and don't have the time to shed five or six instruments it's way cool."
-Vinnie R.

"This program has completely changed my playing for the good. I can experiment with playing chords and leads over various scenarios that I can quickly create and change. Love this program. I use it nearly every day."
-Dave R.

"I bought my first version in 1994 and have progressed to 2018 version. I use it to create backing tracks for live music performance. I currently have over 2,000 songs performance ready. If you can and type, and use mouse it will work for you."
-Roger M.

"The premiere reason for me for buying this program; it has given me the freedom to fully complete the foundation for my songs without the confinement of limited minded musicians. After the song concept is complete, it can then be presented those musicians to play as a cover song. Also writing a song with a band gives them partial ownership of your idea... not cool... especially since they may have fought your idea every step of the way.. Every member of an organized band should own a copy of this program to compose or to even give legitimate composition alternatives to the original songwriter."
-Paul V.

Thanks everyone!
