Hi, friends !:))

called a machine, but that is not really
true as I still think I am more human (?)(lol) :))
And in this shape I had to write a

A banjo and a mandolin in a Bacharachish
context ? that can´t work , can it ?

and this version is with electric piano solo:

Lyrics:

MY LOVE (by Dani)
My Love, my Love
you´re all around
but not to be found
´cause you´re gone
you´re gone all away heaven bound

You were ill, so ill
your disease broke you down
I was left here alone
on the ground
yearning for you, oh my love
oh my love

Your spirit soars, I can feel it´s force
and it gives, it gives me the strength to go on
to go on

And my Love, you were my everything
you made my life complete
and everything so sweet
and you, I did it all for you
you made my heart go singing
and ringing for you

solo

My Love, my love
there will come a time
I´ll leave all behind
and it´s then
it’s then when we´ll meet once again
once again !

Your spirit soars, I can feel it´s force
and it gives, it gives me the strength to go on
to go on

Your spirit soars, I can feel it´s force
and it gives, it gives me the strength to go on
to go on, Oh my Love !!

Nice song, Dani... nice vocal and harmonies.

I like the banjo. Cannot say that I liked the steel lead, though. It did not quite "fit" the feel of the song for me... but that's one of those "personal choices", as you know...

You ARE a machine!

Keep 'em coming...

Another nice tribute Dani.

The banjo was perhaps a little more dominant than other instruments in the mix. Maybe that was intentional though. The choice of Pedal Steel for the solo I thought was a little bit disconnected compared to the rest of the song, but perhaps that was a deliberate part of your design.

Great lyrics, great job as usual

Trevor

Hi, Floyd !:))

Thank you for your most kind words !:))
I did not really like the steel pedal
either so I did change the solo to
a electric piano solo (don´t know if
the solo got any better, but as you say
it might be more in line with the mood
of the song ) ?

Cheers
Dani

Hi, Blues !:))

Thank you for taking the time
to listen and comment, really
much appreciated !!:))
Yes, I do agree it is bittersweet
but it is a song with a positive
undertone as I am slowly getting
back to a normal life again, though
I do not know how to compensate
for that huge loss !!!

Cheers
Dani

Hi, Trevor !:))


Thank you so much for your
most kind comments ! I fully agree
with you and Floyd, the pedal steel
was probably too heavy here and so
I did a version with elec piano solo
too !:)) The banjo was intentional yes !:))

Cheers
Dani

Dani,

Another nice tribute to who had to be an outstanding lady. And I am sure she would say she was blessed to have you!

PG Music News
RealBand® Works Great in Windows® 11!

Here's an introductory look at RealBand® running on the preview version of Windows® 11!

Watch the video.

Customers LOVE Band-in-a-Box® 2021!

Check out some of the latest Band-in-a-Box® feedback we've received:

"There's a saying 'Give a man a fish, feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, feed him for a lifetime.' That's exactly what my friend did in 1990. He taught me how to use BIAB and I've used it hundreds of time to do arraignment and to jam with any style band."

"Love BIAB. I use it daily. Their support is great too!"

"RealTracks are amazing!!! I use BIAB for backtracks in my solo act... Still using the basic package and it's all need..."

"I have used Band in A Box for many years. If it would have been around when I was young, I would have been a much better musician. I use it for all my songs I have written and recorded. With Band In A Box I can sit in my room and sound like a whole band without having to put up with them!"

"If you know something about music and take the time to learn the program, you can make it do some amazing things. It is a great help to songwriters who want to demo their song without paying for studio time. It makes changes and tweaks much easier as well."

"Been using it for so many years. It's a great tool. The instruments that I don't have or play make up the void and it saves so much time. I use this program for every song I write."

"Great tool for the songwriter!"

"An essential part of my studio! I write songs on piano, but I'm not a pianist by a long way. BIAB is like having a roomful of session players in your studio, and just the simple act of taking your basic idea and hearing a skilled pianist play it presents so many new ideas and options you hadn't thought of."

"Powerful, easy to use, inexpensive and they even split the modest payments up if you want. No complaints. Lots of satisfaction."

"I added a steel guitar to a fully produced original. He followed every change like he was in the studio reading the chart. Fascinating technology!"

"I have used it to make backing tracks for six CD's with about 12 songs on each. They make a great gift!"

"It's simply a necessity - buy it now - the staff and support do a great job as well!"

"A great tool for us songwriters!"

"I LOVE Band-in-a-Box!"

"I see it as a very worthwhile investment. In fact, from initial purchase about 8 years ago, using the backing tracks I have made, my income from that investment has returned over 5,000% on the investment!"

continued...

Band-in-a-Box® - Boxing Clever - Sound on Sound #TBT

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® is more than 30 years old? I stumbled across this 1990 magazine article explaining the relatively new program, and think it's an enjoyable read for any Band-in-a-Box user - it really shows that we are always listening to user feedback when developing our program!

Read the article: Boxing Clever: Band-In-A-Box Software

A few of my favorite statements:

"The intention of PG Music's Band-In-A-Box package is to couple that speed and convenience with the improved flexibility of the personal computer. Versions are available for the Atari ST, Mac, and PC compatibles. Have the programmers succeeded? And can they rid themselves of the stigma of the auto-accompaniment section? Given the above state of affairs, the first hurdle that the program has to overcome is one of acceptance and, frankly, a name like 'Band-In-A-Box' is a bad start."

(I think our name was a great start!)

"The final results are, to say the least, impressive. Band-In-A-Box achieves something that most hardwired auto-accompaniment sections have never been able to do - inject a degree of feel into the music. It really does sound more human than so many of the computer generated pieces I've heard."

"...I'm quite convinced that PG Music will have a winner on their hands. This is one piece of software that you can get more out of than you put in."
