Years ago, someone asked me to put a melody to a lyric written for a funeral in the US. Not the easiest task, but I decided to rewrite it in norwegian and give it a try.

And finally, with a little help from PG Music, here it is!

Solnedgong/Sunset



I'm singing, playing the thin whistle and the arpeggio steel string track + shaking eggz – everything else is BIAB, dropboxed, mixed and mastered in DP8.


Style is _ACPOP16.STY

RealTracks in style: 1759:Bass, Electric, Pop16ths Ev 085
RealTracks in song: 2024:Piano, Acoustic, Rhythm CountryJohn Ev 085
RealTracks in style: 1761:Guitar, Acoustic, Strumming Pop16ths Ev16 085
RealTracks in style: 1765:Guitar, High-Strung Acoustic, Fingerpicking Pop16ths Ev16 085
RealTracks in song: 1760:Fiddle, Background Pop16ths Ev 085
RealTracks in song: 1757:Accordion, Rhythm Pop8ths Ev 085
RealDrums: RealDrums in Style: NashvilleEven16^1-a:Sidestick, HiHat , b:Snare, Ride





A humble try, to translate the norwegian lyric:


Sunset

I have seen the golden sunsets
From the sea to mountains high
I have finished my last harvest
And now, it's my time to die

Do not cry for me tomorrow
But remember yesterdays
When we laughed and danced together
Tied the bands of love – the bare skinned way

God has called me home to heaven
I’ll be waiting for you there
Tenderly looking for you through pearly gates
With the same love you shared with me here

We will always be together
Our lives and hearts entwined
Take my hand and hold on gently
All I see is darkness, until the new morning will shine

A beautiful piece, beautifully played and sung. The tin whistle adds a special poignant touch. It's also a fabulous professional sounding production. Thanks for bringing this to us to hear and enjoy!

Have you opened up your RealBand 2019 yet? You may notice that we've given it a fresh new look! In fact, there are now 3 different looks to RealBand.

See for yourself! Within the program, visit Options | Icon Set and choose from: Classic, Modern 1, or Modern 2.

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows - Choosing to Run 64-bit or 32-bit

We heard you! With the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows we've included the BRAND NEW 64-bit version of Band-in-a-Box®, which works well with the latest plugins and 64-bit OS features! Because not everyone has a 64-bit computer, we include both the 64-bit and 32-bit versions with your purchase - you choose which one to use!

By default, when you install your Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows the 32-bit version will run.

The steps to run the 64-bit version are simple! Just head to your "bb" folder and choose the "bbw64" icon - you'll notice that the Band-in-a-Box® "splash screen" will state "64-bit" as the program opens.
(and if you open the 32-bit version, the "splash screen" will state "32-bit")

Still not certain which version you're running? Within the program, go to Help | About Band-in-a-Box - it'll either state:

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2019 (604)
<--- the number in brackets is the build number - this will change as new patch updates are released
64 bit application

or:

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2019 (604)
<--- the number in brackets is the build number - this will change as new patch updates are released
32 bit application

We hope everyone who can is enjoying their Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit version for Windows!
