Hi,friends

Going funky:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9mlkNlKgOsQ

New Soundcloud file:

http://soundcloud.com/dani-lindroos/funky-song-bass-volume

Have a nice funky day all of you !!:))


Cheers
Dani

The style is Fusion shuffle 2 and recorded through zoom H4n to mixcraft 6
And the lyrics to this experimental tune:

FUNKY SONG (Music and words by Dani)

Song,
I´m gonna write a song
a funky song to go with you along
to put a smile on every face
just listen to the beat of the base
with a funky song, you can´t go wrong
and if you don´t share my view
I´m gonna rest my case

Well,
I´m gonna do it well
what I´ll do is not for me to tell
but I will use every trick of course
and bring it all home with a force
and I don´t care a darn too
if it´s extremely hard for me to sell

Hey, what lovely chords do appear to me
Hey, let us transpose a little higher you see

and low

Where,
will I be goin´ from here
there or here or even everywhere
I don´t know where I´m goin´ today
It maybe clears up during the day
and if you don´t hear from me
I´ll be having some fun
with my funk to share

Hey, what lovely chords do appear to me
Hey, let us transpose a little higher you see

and low

Oh,
I think it´s time to go
but I hope the show has had the kind of flow
that you connect with this funky ol´ style
so get your kicks and dig for a while
as I´m not sure I´ll return with a better one we won´t know
Time for me to go……fade away

Hi Dani.

Another song and another chance to show just how versatile you are. From the title, I was expecting the Average White Band, but ended up with Al Jarreau!

Lovely smooth jazz-funk production, just as professional as ever.

Can't wait to see what you do next.

ROG.

Very relaxing funky song. Who is singing your back up vocals. They add a lovely element.

Cool!! Do you just use the harmony generator to generate the female version?

Dear Jo !

As I am actually a second base
I use my falsetto for the "female" upper voices !
You may know that all male barbershop tenors
use falsetto as it would be absolutely impossible to
reach as high notes as is required by the arrangements
without using falsetto. To my own surprise I have
found out that many bases have very good falsettos and
then there are those guys like Tim Waurick who can sing
9 octaves !! (check him out on utube) !!

Cheers
Dani

Dani,

A song about writing a song. Very clever.
Loved the line "so get your kicks and dig for a while as I´m not sure I´ll return with a better one we won´t know."

I liked the way you put the tracks together, the vox and sweet harmonies too. It has a cool uplifting aura.

Enjoyed it very much.

Hi, Josie !

Thank you for your kind comments
very much appreciated ! I have
always liked this type of music
so I guess I am drawn to it ?
The lyrics are always difficult
for me, but I feel honoured for
your kind remarks on them too !


Cheers
Dani

Hi, Guenter ! smile

Thank you for our kind comments !
Yes, (lol) I guess you are right
in the sense that I can sing bass
and tenor, but the middle range
voices are the most difficult
for me ! smile Yes,I grew up with
The BB:s music running in my ears (Lol) !

Cheers
Dani

dani,

This may be my all-time favorite danisong!!!

As a rule, I truly dislike songs that mention "writing this song". But in this case, you wrote the entire song about writing the song - and it works brilliantly!

The bass line is terrific (I think it should be a touch louder - it works that well).

The harmonies are amazing.

+1 here.

I must have listened to this song maybe 10 -15 times before I penned this reply. Mainly because I still could not find the "funky" in the song, OK maybe a baseline.

But what I did find and loved even more with each listen was a heart felt happy trip down memory lane, especially when watching the accompanying slide show.

Bottom-line funky or not what I hear and see are wonderful moments of a loving family captured in time. The feel of the music IMHO cements the love and happiness captured in the photos.

Did I say I like it? . . . well I do.

Later,

Customers LOVE Band-in-a-Box®!

Here's some of the amazing feedback we've received lately, from program users just like you!

Arthritic fingers means I find it very difficult to play anything. This program is amazing - and it does use real musicians!
-Bob E.

The power of this program is just unbelievable! It's been a best kept secret for a couple of decades now. A song writer's dream!
-Mike D

This band can practice any time of day ...LOL
-William G

Band-in-a-Box works so simple you could teach a child to do it within minutes - the RealTracks are amazing. Doing an album as we speak. I challenge you to give it a try. I am 60 years old and even though I've played 50 years, I am no engineer. But as a song writer I needed some effective tools to create quality production of my work. This is IT! It's as easy as typing and filling in the blanks. The instructional videos allow you to change settings while watching the pro. I myself purchased every "RealTrack" I could get... Take it from me, don't let this overwhelm you. It is absolutely a writer and solo artist dream!
-John S

Best part of Band-in-a-Box is that it saves me having to program drums, the Real Drummer part of the software is brilliant and natural sounding. I then layer real instruments with guys from my band. As a songwriter, Band-in-a-Box has saved me so much time it's ridiculous.
-Andy B

Incredible Software. Great for ignorance and experts and for anyone who wants to deal with music. If you do not have a hobby and want to have one "Band-in-a-Box" is the best choice. Simple, but if you want to be an expert on it, you need to make an effort to master it perfectly for perfect use. The only disadvantage is if you do not want to become a musician, and use it, you will become a perfect musician. Therefore, be cautious. It's not a toy. ;)
-Ilija B.

Been a BIAB man since '92, such a comprehensive source for music making! So much more to offer than "loops", it allows actual music composition to be realized. Evolve from harmonic ignorance and find out what REAL music is made of!
-Don D.

A must for any musician who wants to improve on his own, or to share his musical ideas in a professional high quality rendition.. You just play with the best musicians and that's great ♪ :)
-Jean-Marie D.

I use Band in a Box all the time. I couldn't be more pleased. It's easy to use and it sounds super-big time!
-Max R.

An excellent tool for generating backing tracks. Saves me hours of MIDI programming. Combines the best of MIDI and live audio samples.
-Steve A.
