Ever wake in the morning with a vague feeling something's wrong?

Something's Wrong

RD - Jazz Funk Pop
Bass - RT 7429 Acoustic held
Synth - RT 2275 Disco
Piano - RT 2762 Brit pop
Piano - RT 2495 Electric held
Fiddle - RT 618 Allis


| E | A | F#m7 | B7


| E Woke up this | C#m morning | F#m7 feeling somethings | B7 wrong

| E Skys are grey but | C#m that's ok be | F#m7 sunny before | B7 long

We | E kissed and cuddled | C#m morning friends | F#m7 kept each other | B7 warm

| E Still the feeling | A follows me | E causing this a | B7 larm

| E | A | F#m7 | B7


| E It's not me and | C#m it's not you | F#m7 it's not where we | B7 live

| E Somethings displaced | C#m somewhere and | F#m7 somethings got to | B7 give

| E Could it be the | C#m climate or sad | F#m7 stories in the | B7 news

Or | E something hidden | A in the past | E givin me the | B7 blues

| E | A | F#m7 | B7


Theres a | E ghost walking | C#m on my grave | F#m7 I'm not even | B7 in it

The | E search for reasons | C#m seems so strange I | F#m7 just can't be | B7 gin it

| E Maybe the re | C#m ciever is | F#m7 tuned a touch too | B7 fine

And the | E feelings I'm re| A ceiving are not | E mine | B7

| E | A | F#m7 | B7


| E Got to push on | C#m got to move | F#m7 got play the | B7 game

| E Got to see the | C#m good things | F#m7 never mind the | B7 blame

There's | E so much light and | C#m so much shade and | F#m7 so much in be | B7 tween

And | E life is so much | A better now | E than it's ever | B7 been

| E | A | F#m7 | B7


| E The morning grows | C#m cloud comes in we | F#m7 light the | B7 fire

| E Warm and cozy | C#m write a song and | F#m7 aim for something | B7 higher

| E Now we're under | C#m way and there's | F#m7 nothing more to | B7 say

Except good - | E day | A | E | A | E | A | E ||

Good day.

I was thinking exactly the same thing! Rich, you have some lyrics here to think about! Good job! Thanks, Torrey

Really nice work here! I particularly enjoyed the vivid and descriptive lyrics in this one. The whole tune has a really nice sway to it. It is very pretty, and calming. It has a sincere quality that really draws me in.

Thanks so much for sharing smile

Hello, Rich

It is a simple but nice song using the golden chord progression of pops. (I - VIm - IIm7 -V7)
Perhaps I believe thousands of songs have been composed with this chord progression, but I think that your originality is expressed exactly in this tune and it is wonderful.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

Rich,

Your approach is always so... YOU.
Always sparkling and original.
And that subtle touch of drama in your voice, that works great in this song.
So does the fiddle.

The feeling I get from your songs Rich is that you are a poet the loves to put them to music! Your lyrics are fantastic!

Great mix with a strong vocal.

I really enjoyed this.

#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.

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
