My daughter is getting married in September, and while we were discussing what song we will dance to, she asked me if I would write one for us.

She hasn't heard this as she wants to hear it for the first time when we dance.

All the instruments are Band in a Box, I just love this program, although it does make me lazy sometimes

Fitzy,

Beautiful song. Great vocal and harmony, and excellent tracks and mix. Super well done. Your daughter will have a lifetime memory with this.

You had better stock up on the tissues. There is gonna be a LOT of crying...

Wonderful.

Hi Fitzy
Well done! A Great song to mark the special day.
I'm sure that she will wet your shirt with tears!.
One Question - on the day, who will sing the song?
Congratulations
Ian

Had me from the 1st verse. My prediction is that when the sax solo begings you will look into each other's eyes and ball like two babies. In fact I'll be willing to put money on this one!

Get ready for the waterworks!

Later,

Really beautiful! I have 2 daughters, and both of them got married within 1 year, so I know what you are about to go through.

As has been said, good job with the vocals, the harmonies, the whole song. I know she will love it! And I know there will be tears!

Huge +1 to what's already been said. This is absolutely beautiful. She's going to love it and so is everyone else. I'm going to buy stock in kleenex now.

Great work.

Very nice. Your daughter will dance to a song her Dad wrote just for her - how cool is that?


Regards,

Bob

Thank you all for your kind words, praise from fellow musicians is high praise indeed. I intended to carry a clean handkerchief to give my daughter, but after reading these replies I think AT LEAST two will be in order!

Later,




I'm with Danny on this one. Does anyone want to bet us?

This is one fantastic tribute to your daughter as well as a very special song that she will cherish for the rest of her life. You should be very proud of this one!

Two thumbs up.

Hi Fitz,

What a beautiful, wonderful, special song. Everything about it is exceptionally well done - writing, arranging, singing, mixing. As Floyd said above "Your daughter will have a lifetime memory with this."

My best wishes to your all,
Noel

Want to hear what a chord sounds like? Type the chord, then press SHIFT enter. The chord will play as it is entered on to the chord sheet!

You can also familiarize yourself with how different chords sound using the Chord Builder feature of the program, which will audition different chords for you, based on your input.

Want more? Challenge yourself with some ear training with the included Pitch Invasion and Music Replay programs, accessible in the Practice Window!

Pitch Invasion helps to develop perfect pitch as you shoot down "alien" notes invading from above, and Music Replay develops your pitch, rhythm, and melody recognition by replaying what the program plays, in note, rhythm, or melodic modes.

Pitch Invasion & Music Replay can also be accessed within the bb\Songs and Lessons\Ear Training folder for the program.

Sound-Guy has been using Band-in-a-Box® for many, many, many, many, many years - and we still managed to surprise him with some great new features! Read his latest review to learn more about his favorite additions for 2020!

"Band-in-a-Box continues to evolve as an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to produce not only new compositions and arrangements, but also perform them with excellent musical “talent”. It also provides educational and training tools for keyboardists and guitarists. It’s easy to use the basic functions, and challenging enough to keep you occupied for years. BIAB provides education, inspiration, a “live” band to aid in practicing, and anything from backing tracks to full performances for recording."
