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.

There's a lot to like here...and we did.

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.

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac - 45 Requests Fulfilled!

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac is here, and there's more than 80 new features! We've answered some user requests with this release, including:

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 use the feature to make a video of the chord sheet from a Band-in-a-Box song. I use it to make backing tracks and upload them to YouTube. But these don't include any notation for the melody and lyrics of my songs. My viewers would like to see the melody and lyrics too. Is there a way you can include the melody in the video? I've tried recording this with screen capture programs, but it's time consuming, recording in real time, and the audio quality and sync are not that good.

A. Yes, Band-in-a-Box 2018 can do this now. You can save your song as a video of the notation track. So that includes the notation, guitar tab, and lyrics. And saving the whole video and audio just takes a few seconds, much faster than real time recording. Just load in your song with chords, melody, lyrics, and/or guitar tab, and press Save-As Notation Video. Your song will be up on YouTube in no time!

Q. I am songwriter and uses Band-in-a-Box to make backing tracks for my productions. I'm starting to make videos and upload them to YouTube. Can Band-in-a-Box help with my production videos?

A. Band-in-a-Box 2018 can now make videos with Video RealTracks, of the musicians performing the RealTracks. And they are playing along to your song's chord progression. You can include these videos in your own song performance, which adds a nice visual element.

Q. I use the Audio Harmonies in Band-in-a-Box. But I find the harmonies simplistic, in that they are mainly using chord tones. The Band-in-a-Box MIDI harmonies are more sophisticated, using passing tones. Why can't my Audio Harmonies work like that?

A. We've added support for new types of Audio Harmonies in the Audio Edit Window. These do allow you to choose any Band-in-a-Box MIDI harmony that has passing tones or sophisticated jazz voicings (adding 4 parts to make a 5-part jazz voicing for example). Band-in-a-Box automatically figures out the MIDI version of your melody so it uses this to create the harmonies.

Q. The new toolbar is nice, but needs more color options. Too much grey! How about skins?

A. We've added support for skins, and you can choose color or grey scale options for toolbar, mixer etc.

And more!!!

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