I think this should work. Sorry for the screw-up. Please give a listen. Thanks. Take care. Greg

Hey Greg,

This song is incredibly impressive.

You've done a brilliant job writing it and putting it all together. The lyrics and the music are absolutely outstanding. Stunning. I loved the personification of the ocean in the second verse. That was powerful. This song has "Hit" written on every syllable, on every note. I hope the right person hears it for you smile

All the best,
Noel

Great tune, vocal, arrangement and production!! I might be biased re the killer kick off by having watched a Beach Boy special on their new project last night smile You vocal allows every word to be understood -- an ability that many do not possess. Everything works well. Thanks for posting.

A very well produced song. Some tunes that I hear (very few) make me sit up and take notice from the first note and this is one of those. Outstanding job all around. I admire the work and dedication it took to get to this level of production, I look forward to hearing more from you.

Hi Greg,

Welcome!

Love your voice and the song sounds great. I'm a beach boys fan so I love that flavor.

Give us some info on how you used BIAB/RB in the production.

Greg,

We're new here...2nd day. Just learning the forums and getting to know a few folks.

There's not much left to say about this one that hasn't already been said! Surf Rock, eh?! That intro blew us away! The cut track was so professionally done...everything as perfect as can be. Great job...kudos!

Merry Christmas...

Al & Di

Very impressive Greg, really liked the lyric and the melody. They both work together seamlessly.

I also really like the phrasing, especially on the delivery of the words "Take Me to the Ocean".

As others have said, I really hope this song falls into the hands to the right listeners.

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows!

There are Notation Enhancements in the NEW Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows! These include:
•A new button in the Print Options dialog which lets you quickly print a "chords only" fake sheet. You can also access this from the right-click menu on the chord sheet.
•A new track type (Drums) is now available for The Melody and Soloist tracks.
•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 The line.)
•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. Previously, it played the song from the beginning of the current bar.
•Holding down the [Ctrl] key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
•In The Notation Windows Options dialog, The clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
•Pressing The space bar plays the song from the current time location, not the current bar.
•The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
•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.
•There's a keystroke entry notation 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.
•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.
•You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
