Hi Steve...

This is our first time to listen to you. We didn't hear the original version but this one sure is nice! We loved the natural, relaxed feel you have. It's like we're all sitting around on the porch and singing as the mood strikes us. It's that casual and engaging. We loved this gem! TRhe birds at the end was a real nice touch!

I (Al) have been to England twice...same place on business. I was in Burtonwood, a small village near Warrington. loved my few days there!

Thanks for a calming and soothing listen...

Al & Di

Thanks for your kind words, it means a lot.

I used to live about a mile from Burtonwood in Warrington, so I know it well, I presume you were in the forces. As a curiosity I was in Waverly Tn a couple of years ago when I was on route with the wife from Memphis to Nahville and stopped over.

I am new to this forum, having only got BIAB this Christmas and so far loving it.
Again many thanks Steve

Isn't it amazing you've been to the town in which I live and I have been to the town in which you formerly lived...and we're an ocean apart!

Yes, I was in the US Army, stationed in Germany but we had a support warehouse in Burtonwood. I went there to inventory and "hand out" a few new rules.

We've had BIAB for about 2 years. We just upgraded to 2014 this past week. We wish success and musical satisfaction. Best to you, mate!

Steve, a heartfelt "Welcome" to what I think is the most knowledgeable music forum on this planet. We are songwriters and musicians at every level of achievement who are willing to share that knowledge with noobs. Never be embarrassed to ask questions. A sage musician is quoted as saying: "The only stupid question is the one never asked!"

Hi Steve,

Your song is beautiful.

For a work of this nature, my observations are that there is always elegance in simplicity and your song carried that elegance through quality writing, quality performance and skilful production.

I really enjoyed listening to this one. It's wonderful.

Regards,
Noel

Get Inspired with the Band-in-a-Box® Title Generator!

There can be many triggers that could inspire you to write a song... but what if you're wanting to write a song, and are having trouble finding the inspiration you need?

Jump start your creativity using the Title Generator feature in Band-in-a-Box®.

I love this feature - it delivers some beautiful results!

To access this feature:

Mac: select Edit | Chords | Auto-Generate Song Title menu command (control+shift+S). The song title will appear in the Title window! Repeat the Auto-Generate Song Title command until the program comes up with a suitable title for your song. Band-in-a-Box® will keep generating new titles for as long as it takes to get the right one.

Windows: click on the "Generate Title" button within the main screen of the program and you can choose to "auto-generate" a song title which will appear right in the Title field of your song, or for a more varied selection choose to "generate multiple titles" and you'll be taken to the Title Generator window, which can generate a list of 50 song titles for you!

I've just done this, and won't bother list all 50 here - but the "top 10" I've chosen from my generated list are:
Eloquent Laugh
Statuesque Luck
Considering a Rainbow
Brief Fling, Acknowledged
Something for a Sandpiper
Happy Runaround
Cheatin' Skies
Then Came a Rose
The Mention of My Love
Eternal Raincheck

Give it a try!

The resource for this feature can also be edited, allowing you to customize the results.
(to do this, review the file TITL1.TXT within the BB Data folder.)
