While we're buried in so much snow I've been thinking how nice it would be to enjoy those island breezes so I created my own. Hope you'll enjoy them too!

This was created completely in Band-In-A-Box using RealTracks for the Uke and Bass and Real Track 970 for the Pedal Steel

Hi Val,

What a lovely, restful composition. Sitting here listening with my eyes closed, I'm finding the journey through the song very calming and soothing; it's like I'm floating along on a dream.

All the best,
Noel

I can even see Bing singing to Rosemary as they ride in the outrigger. Now if I could just hear his lyric I would write it down.

OK now I can't be anymore relaxed . . . Thank You!

Later,

Very nice and restful, Val.
Cleverly executed in Biab. Well done.
Mountainside - We would be hard pressed to see any dolphins from here - we're in the very middle of England, at least 70 miles form any coast. However, last September I was entranced to see the wild dolphins playing off Anna Maria Island pier almost every time we went on there.
Great Memories.
cheers
ian

Hi Val. Well there’s no snow in South Africa at the moment. We are in a heat wave! Lovely tune. Especially liked the slide guitar.

Noel, Glad you found it relaxing, that was the intent of this song. I was re-creating memories of the vacation we took to Hawaii several years ago. A magical time, never to be forgotten.

Mountainside..We didn't get to see any porpoise but we did get to see the humpback whales. It was quite a site! We stood and watched them frolicing about for the longest time.

Dannyc..
Sorry this doesn't have any lyrics..may write some later. Thanks for listening and commenting.

Sixchannel (Ian)...We didn't see any dolphins in Hawaii, but we did see a lot of them when we lived in Florida.

Jo131..Sure wish you could bottle up some of your heat wave and send it over here. Tried to listen to your new song this morning but for some reason I had no sound. My internet has been giving me fits lately so will try again later. Thanks for listening and for your comments.

Val

Cool.....and the several interpretations of the word "cool" fit it. Few people realize how popular Hawaiian music was in the 1920's and how much the slide guitar influenced both blues and country.

Floyd Jane,
Thanks for listening. I have great regard for your special talent with the mixing. I wish it could be passed along by osmosis or just by listening to your songs. But alas I fear I must try to learn by picking up clues here and there.

Mootsman, I like your interpretation of COOL! Thanks for listening and commenting.

Beautiful, very relaxing as it transported me to the beaches!

Thanx I needed this as we just got through another snow storm a couple of days ago!

Super mix!

Two thumbs up.

MarioD, Thanks for listening. Hope it helped to melt some of that snow! Sorry it took me so long for me to get back to you. Have been taking care of my new Great, Great Grandchild and that leaves little time to work on music or visit the forum. But well worth the time spent!

Get Inspired with the Band-in-a-Box® Title Generator!

There can be many triggers that could inspire you to write a song... but what if you're wanting to write a song, and are having trouble finding the inspiration you need?

Jump start your creativity using the Title Generator feature in Band-in-a-Box®.

I love this feature - it delivers some beautiful results!

To access this feature:

Mac: select Edit | Chords | Auto-Generate Song Title menu command (control+shift+S). The song title will appear in the Title window! Repeat the Auto-Generate Song Title command until the program comes up with a suitable title for your song. Band-in-a-Box® will keep generating new titles for as long as it takes to get the right one.

Windows: click on the "Generate Title" button within the main screen of the program and you can choose to "auto-generate" a song title which will appear right in the Title field of your song, or for a more varied selection choose to "generate multiple titles" and you'll be taken to the Title Generator window, which can generate a list of 50 song titles for you!

I've just done this, and won't bother list all 50 here - but the "top 10" I've chosen from my generated list are:
Eloquent Laugh
Statuesque Luck
Considering a Rainbow
Brief Fling, Acknowledged
Something for a Sandpiper
Happy Runaround
Cheatin' Skies
Then Came a Rose
The Mention of My Love
Eternal Raincheck

Give it a try!

The resource for this feature can also be edited, allowing you to customize the results.
(to do this, review the file TITL1.TXT within the BB Data folder.)
