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

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.

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

Beginners Help - Muting the Melody Notation

Visit our Beginners Forum, and you'll notice our amazing Forum Community helping out new program users!

Like this recent post regarding Muting the Melody Notation: http://www.pgmusic.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=458716 - Forum user Matt Finley did a great job of answering the new program user!

Our Beginners Forum really is a great resource for new program users!

Q: When I have entered chords and notation for a song, is it possible to mute the notation and just have the chords playing? This would be helpful for when I just want the chord backing track but want to read the notation.

A: There are several ways to do this. The easiest is probably to use the Mixer window and change the volume slider to zero for the Melody track. Or, hit the Mute icon on the Mixer for the Melody Track.

Another way, with more control rather than all or nothing, is to press F5 at the measure where you want to mute, and select mute or change the volume to zero. Later, press F5 and select Return to Normal, or change the volume back.

#TechTipTuesday - Band-in-a-Box® Patch Updates

If you're ever experiencing an issue with your Band-in-a-Box program, make sure you have the most recent patch update for your version - this can be done at http://www.pgmusic.com/support.updates.win.htm.

Patch updates are released frequently, and are created by our development team to fix any reported bugs, tweak existing features within the program, update demos and other files as needed, and more!

To find out which version of the program you have, visit Help | About Band-in-a-Box within the program. You will see the full version number listing as:
Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2018 (512)

The number in parentheses is the build number. As you can see, my Band-in-a-Box is up to date and will continue to stay that way because I've selected "Automatically check for updates every 7 days" within the Help | Check for Updates.... option (you can set the number of days to a different number). This window will also look to see if you're version is up to date, so you don't technically have to visit http://www.pgmusic.com/support.updates.win.htm if you didn't want to!

Once you've installed your patch update (make sure the program is closed when you're doing this), give it another try - if you are still experiencing the same issue you can report it by contacting us directly, or you can post your result to the Forum thread that also announces the patch update, like our recent Band-in-a-Box 2018 Build 512 Update (Feb 15) post.
