My Sweet Bunny

This time a merrier song than my usual work, made for a special occasion. I'm singing the lead vocal and the extra bassline in the chorus. It was fun to write the lyrics and to sing, and BIAB really gave many nice folky instruments to choose from. I hope it brings you joy and summer feelings smile

Based on your feedback on my previous song, I tried to cut the low frequencies and lift up some higher frequencies (4khz) of my voice in the mix more, do you think it is enough or do I still need to work on it?

RealDrums: GypsyJazz, MotownFunkyTriplets
RealTracks:
Acoustic Bass: #2126
Electric Bass: #2362
Acoustic Piano: #2225
Electric Piano: #2363
Acoustic Guitar: #938

Ukulele: #1142, #1143
Fiddle: #1117

Lead vocal, 'bass': Janne
Backing vocals: Vocaloids (Ruby, CyberDiva, CyberSongman)

Mixed in Adobe Audition 2017

Lyrics:

My sweet bunny
sing me a song
snuggle in my armpit
all night long.
My sweet bunny
sing lullabies
remind me what we have done
under the skies
there was a cozy
warmup in May
then fire at the sunset of the
beautiful day.

Thanks to my angel
I feel alive
my sweet bunny, catchy smile
My bambi eye from the woods
my matching part
my sweet bunny, lionheart.

My sweet bunny
put potatoes to boil
in your hair I smell
the coconut oil.
My sweet bunny
pass me a wing
use the napkin, wipe the
grease off my chin
picnic on the isle
green moss in the sun
remember people walking by
they saw our fun.

Thanks to my angel...

My sweet bunny
pour me some wine
give me a long kiss
my valentine.
My sweet bunny
here's a pint of pale beer
your coaster has my name
you're so special and dear.
Lean on me tight
I'll walk you to my house
I'll lend you my old toothbrush
you can sleep in my blouse.

Thanks to my angel...

My sweet bunny
so important to me
my inspiration
my Calliope.
My sweet bunny
my gifted muse
I have perfect time
on a lifetime cruise
with you.

Janne

Sweet, funny song. I enjoyed!!
The mix sounds good, Janne. I would just increase a bit the volume of your vocals, but overall the mix sounds really nice and balanced, to my ears at least. Thumbs up!

Nice work here, jannesan smile It's a really cute song, and really fun as well! I like the groove it's got going - it's really playful, and easy to nod along to.

Great job, and thanks so much for sharing!

Dear "jannesan"...

"My sweet bunny
pass me a wing
use the napkin, wipe the
grease off my chin
"

Love, even at its best, can be messy emotionally, and sometimes physically, even. So, when I encounter lyrics that speak so honestly of the mundane, not-so-very-romantic aspects of loving relationships, they just ring more true than the most passionate exclamations of "Baby, I love you/need you/want you/can't live without you..." and so on.

Enjoined to the rollicking music, the lyrics for "My Sweet Bunny" are a testimonial to people who aren't afraid to "get their hands dirty" when it comes to expressing what they find truly endearing about their loved ones.

Thanks Jon, I appreciate your kind words smile I'm glad to hear the mix is good. The volume of my vocal was bit difficult to decide, because on headphones it sounds bit too loud, but on speakers maybe not loud enough.

Hi Janne,

Sounds good to my ears ... don't think I'd change anything. It's real nice to hear you singing your own songs.

A really sweet tune and you sounded excellent on the vocals. That was a fun listen! Wishing you the very best,

Alan

Announcing…The Birth of a Song (w/Floyd Jane)

We are excited to announce the release of a new project: The Birth of a Song (w/Floyd Jane)

Songwriter Floyd Jane shows the songwriting process from inspiration to performance and publication: http://www.pgmusic.com/?vid=IYMMZVvQdCw

The idea for this project came about when many members on this forum and elsewhere were asking questions about the song writing process. There are many aspects, and many parts of it necessary to create a song, get it arranged, performed, and then published on the internet. So we asked the great songwriter Floyd Jane, who is a regular member on this forum, if he could help. Floyd agreed and was even able to collaborate with other forum members, Janice and Bud. The result is this video we put together that you can see on YouTube or Facebook, called "The Birth of a Song (w/Floyd Jane)".

We hope this video helps other songwriters with their songwriting process, and also shows them tools that are available to them along the way. Also, we mention this User Showcase Forum, and hope to see many new aspiring or accomplished songwriters join this community :blush:

A big Thank You to Floyd for sharing your knowledge with the community and making this possible. And to Janice and Bud for your great collaboration!

Here is Floyd's original forum post for his song "A Little Bit Of Me": http://www.pgmusic.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=433190

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Windows - 49 Requests Fulfilled!

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Windows boasts more than 50 new features... and a lot of the new features fill the requests posted by program users!

Some of these include:

Q. I am learning guitar. The RealTracks are very helpful in that I can hear great guitar players, and most of the tracks have tab and notation as well. But there is much more to guitar, could you include some videos of some of the RealTracks Artists? Because I would learn much more from seeing a guitarist than just hearing them.

A. We have a major new feature called "Video RealTracks." These work and sound like RealTracks, but you get to see a video of the Guitarist (or whatever instrument) playing as well. The amazing thing is that this works with any chord progression you type in. So, if you want to learn to play like the great guitarist Brent Mason, for example, you can type in chords to any progression you are interested in, and then hear and see a video of Brent soloing over your progression. Now you can learn much quicker, as it helps to see how a musician is performing, as well as to hear.

Q. I love the Audio Chord Wizard, as it figures out chords from mp3 and other audio files. But it is a separate program from Band-in-a-Box, and I can’t go back and forth to change things easily.

A. We've solved that, as BiaB 2018 has integrated the Audio Chord Wizard directly into Band-in-a-Box. Now load an audio file into BiaB, open the Audio Edit Window – Audio Chord Wizard mode, and let it automatically figure out the bar lines and chords for the song.

Q. I like to save songs as MP3 files, and can't do this with BiaB, except a very low quality one, 64kbps.

A. We've improved this, by adding support for Windows Media Foundation. This allows you to save MP3 in your choice of resolutions, up to very high 320mpbs. Better still, it works on current versions of Windows (Windows 7,8,10) and also on older versions too (Vista, XP).

We've answered 49 questions - review all of these answers on our forum post "49 of your Problems solved? List of 49 Requests fulfilled in Band-in-a-Box 2018" here.

All of the new features in Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Windows can be reviewed at http://www.pgmusic.com/bbwin.new.htm
