Hi, friends!

I did this to the memory
of my dearest late wife
Benita, whom I had the
privilege to be married to for
42 years and who died of cancer
2 years ago.

With some added harmony vocals:

http://app.box.com/s/30neu464t54rqqh4jkxb

Recorded thru zoom H4n to mixcraft 6
on my laptop.

Style: Floridas 16 th bar Gospel

Lyrics:

MY DEAREST

You were my dearest for so long, now
I´m alone and I don´t know how
I am going to survive, when you´re not around

I grew accustomed to be close to you
for I loved you more than you ever knew
loosing you got me ever oh ever so down

Blues, I´ve got the blues
Don´t know how to shake it loose

I knew you darling since that magic day
we met and fell in love I´m still on that way
oh, If only God had let us, let us choose

We would have traveled on together
and would have both gone on forever
but your illness took your life, we were ment to loose

So I´m alone, at least I thought so
but that´s not really true, you know, though,
you´re not around you´re still here with me

You´re with me and will forever be
in my heart and in my memory
I will cherish all the time that you shared with me ....

I don't know about you, but I'm a big fan of amazing feats of rhyming in musical lyrics. My all time favorites are the problems of rhyming something with the words "tragedy" and "handsome."

Here's how it's done in Put on a Happy Face:

Take off the gloomy mask of tragedy, it's not your style
You'll look so good that you'll be


.........................glad ya' de-

cided to smile!

And here's how it's done in Someone to Watch Over Me


Although he may not be the man some girls think of as..........

........................handsome

to my heart he carries the key

How 'bout that? I consider Dani's rhyme, below, to be right up there.

Damn, that's good.

In its entirety, My Dearest is a masterpiece.

Hi, Noel !

Thank you for your kind words.
You know, I surprised myself

but the mood.........you know without saying !

Hi, Dean, my good ol´partner !:))

You are just all too kind, my friend !
Having loved a person for over 50 years
and going thru the decline in your
dearest health is an experience
that will leave a mark on your heart
and soul. Maybe it was there all the time
and just wanted to come out, I don´t
know ?

You know, my friend , that I do
appreciate your more than kind
words.

Cheers
Dani

Dani,

A very sweet song. I like the backing tracks. A good acoustic piano track would be a nice addition to this one (IMO). The drums were quite nice! Your vocal was solid. (harmony?)

Hi, Floyd !

Thank you for your most kind comments !:))
In fact I pondered for a long time if I should
sing some additional vocal parts but ended up
without them.......but, it may be that I will
add some yet....I really do not know, I think
I would have to try it out. I do have an idea about
them, though !:)) I will check it out, yes !!

Cheers
Dani

Hi Dani, what a beautiful song.

I really liked the melody, soft and sensitive. Lovely lyrics blended together with the music for touching tribute.

Nice work, and thanks for sharing

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows was released in December 2018, and included many new features and enhancements - like the enhancements we made to our Notation window!

These include:
-Pressing the space bar plays the song from the current location.
-Double-clicking on the Standard mode Notation window (or on the time line in Editable or Staff Roll mode) plays the song from the current time location.
-The right-click menu in the Editable or Staff Roll mode Notation window has an option to change the current beat resolution. Previously, the only way to do this was to right-click on the time line.
-Clicking close to a stave line will put a note on the stave line instead of between stave lines. Previously, you had to click extremely close to a stave line to insert a note on it.
-In the Notation Windows Options dialog, the clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
-The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
-You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
-A new track type (Drums) is available for the Melody and Soloist tracks.
-Holding down the Ctrl key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
-There's a keystroke entry mode -the "N" mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, up/down cursor to change its pitch, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
-A new button in the Print Options dialog lets you quickly print a "chords only" fake sheet. You can also access this from the right-click menu on the Chord Sheet.
-You can now edit any track in the Event List Editor. When the dialog opens, it will show you the MIDI data in the current notation track.


There's detailed information on our 2019 notation enhancements here: Band-in-a-Box® 2019 New Feature - Notation Enhancements

Jump to the Notation topic in our Band-in-a-Box® 2019 new features video.

Attention Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Mac users - a new FREE patch update (build 315) is available!
Review details and download here

Summary of changes for build 315 (Nov 15, 2019):

Fixed: Exporting MusicXML files was not working.
Fixed: When using "Auto-Hand split Piano track" feature, exported MIDI files contain wrong note durations on the Piano track.
Fixed: Note-based lyrics were not included when exporting MIDI files.
Fixed: User should be prompted to save their song when exiting, if they had added or removed plugins.
Fixed: The Record Audio dialog always says “Track type is Stereo” even if the track type is mono.
Fixed: The [Audio Options…] button in the Record Audio dialog was launching the Audio Devices dialog instead of the Audio Settings dialog.
Fixed: Loops dialog title bar displays wrong track name.
Fixed: Large patch map files are not completely loaded (were limited to 1985 patches).
Fixed: Notation context menu > Edit Section Text… did not do anything.
Fixed: Notation context menu > Insert Section Text… did not do anything.

My Favorite Things - Nudge Chords in Band-in-a-Box®

Love this time saving feature.

Ever fill in the chordsheet fully or for part of song, and then discover you want to add or take away an extra beat or more somewhere in the chordsheet.

Nudge chords (melody) from the Edit Menu is your friend here, the dialog will give you all the options either to remove or add beats where its needed.

Love it.
