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

#TBT Band-in-a-Box® 2017

Three years ago we were just rounding up our BETA testers to help finish up the testing of our Band-in-a-Box® 2017 for Mac!

With that version, we redesigned the main screen GUI, added support for popular .SFZ sound format as well as PG Music’s Hi-Q sounds (sforzando SFZ Synth.), added Natural Arrangements options and Hi-Q Guitar RealCharts, applied many, many, many enhancements to the existing powerful program features, and more! Read all about Band-in-a-Box® 2017 here.

Now, three years later, we're thrilled to say that we're already done BETA testing, and weeks into the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac release! Of course, that means we're having a SALE on Upgrade packages, but only until April 30th!

Band-in-a-Box® - Trombone RealTracks!

Happy National Trombone Players Day!

To all the trombone players out there - this is a day to celebrate you (no joke...)! Not a trombone player? Good news - if you have the Band-in-a-Box® UltraPAK, UltraPAK+ or Audiophile Edition, you have a two AMAZING trombone players in your band already!

Dennis Esson:
RealTracks Set 144: Dixieland – Fast Soloists
RealTracks Set 178: Dixieland - Medium Soloists

Ian McDougall:
RealTracks Set 13: Older Jazz Swing Soloists
RealTracks Set 15: Mainstream Swing
RealTracks Set 17: Bossa
RealTracks Set 19: Jazz Ballad

Welcome to the Team David!

We are thrilled to say that we've added David to our Customer Service Team here at PG Music!

You may have already noticed him - he's already made his appearance here on the Forums, chiming in with assistance and User Showcase Song Feedback.

Welcome to the team David!

Updated Song Titles Browser in Band-in-a-Box® 2020!

If you're looking for a Band-in-a-Box® Style in the feel of a familiar/popular song title, then the Song Titles Browser option in the Band-in-a-Box® StylePicker is the perfect feature for you!

With Band-in-a-Box® 2020, we’ve added 3,400 more song titles including requests from users, so there are now 14,000 titles to search from!

Just type in a familiar song title or artist name - once you have found the song, press the [OK - Find Matching Styles] button. This will take you to the StylePicker window with styles that best match the tempo, feel, and genre of the selected song title.

Didn't find the song you were searching for? Post your title request to our Wishlist forum: Songs to add to Band-in-a-Box Titles database - we think that the 3,400 new titles added with Version 2020 is proof that we're paying attention!

Learn more about the different features of the Band-in-a-Box® StylePicker here.

SongPicker Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac!

The Band-in-a-Box® SongPicker has been enhanced with our newest 2020 version!

The SongPicker now builds faster for large song lists (>30K and up to 60,000 songs). The [Song] button (or the [Open] button) now has 3 additional menu items to launch the SongPicker.

- Open SongPicker in Current Folder: This opens the SongPicker in the current folder of the last loaded song.
- Open SongPicker in Home Folder: This opens the SongPicker in the home folder, which is Applications/Band-in-a-Box/MySongs or as set in the SongPicker.
- Open SongPicker in Favorite Folder: This launches the Favorite Folder dialog which allows you to choose any previously used folder where a song was loaded from, and then open the SongPicker in that folder.

In the SongPicker, there is a new “Open in Home” option. If this is enabled, the SongPicker will always open in the home folder instead of the current folder when you press the default [Song] button to open the SongPicker.

Searching for songs matching a chord progression or melody has been enhanced. There are three new checkboxes: "Key must match exactly," "Chord Extension must match exactly", and "Time Signature must match."

Click here to jump to the SongPicker subject in our New Features video to learn more. (32:11)

(read more about this feature in our Band-in-a-Box 2020 for Mac Online Upgrade Manual.)
