My wife was complaining that she didn't look like she did when we first were married. That was the inspiration for this song. It came together quickly, and I was able to record it in time to give it to her for Christmas. Hope you enjoy.

I used Country 90's Ballad at a tempo of 72 with live guitar and vocal added.

And by the time you get to 46 years, like us, the sentiment will remain. She's still the beauty I met in 1965 and wed in '66.
Wonderful sentiment - every word is true.
I hope your wife enjoyed the Song - WE did!
cheers
Ian

Brian...

This is the first time we've listened to you. What a great song! I'll bet your wife loved it...we sure did. Nice chord arrangement, particularly on the chorus. That was a great listen!

We're working on one with a similar theme called "Not A Day Past Lovely". It's been on the back burner for a couple of months but might bring to the front after listening to this fabulous song.

Very, very nice...we truly enjoyed it! Best to you...

Al & Di

Thanks to everyone for your kind comments! I'm particularly happy with this song because it came together so rapidly. Song writing doesn't come easily to me. I usually struggle months between songs. I wrote this in less than a day, had the BIAB tracks together in a few days, and the final mix done within two weeks of the inspiration.

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.
