Don't Cry Autumn Eyes

8 Bar Intro

Sweet summer fun settin like a settin sun glowing in your Autumn Eyes
Sittin in a corner lookin not cookin waitin for a big suprise
The way you look at me will never set me free I can't get much higher cause my hearts on fire

Hot Autumn Eyes lazy summer kisses leading me on by the shore
Autumn colours summer leading into winter cozy by a crackling fire
Warm in the wonder with lovin things to do don't care where we're goin as long as I'm with you

8 Bar instrumental

Long sleepy winter stirring in the spring born again to carry on the dance
Echoes of the past tugging at my sleeve or is it just a fresh romance
Here we are again in soft summer nights dancing with the devil in the mad moonlight

Sweet summer fun settin like a settin sun glowing in your autumn eyes
Sittin in a corner lookin not cookin waitin for a big suprise
The way you look at me will never set me free I can't get much higher cause my hearts on fire
Don't cry autumn eyes

Awesome tune. Sounded a little like Satchmo. Cool lyrics, singing and playing.

Very cool blues. The vocal works perfectly with the laid back arrangement. Then throw in a fine mix with some "keep your attention" lyrics and you end up with this -- a great production to my ears that sounds really good on my KRK's. Bravo!

Richard,

you continue to do some really interesting stuff!!

Good mix on this. And a nice choice of instrumentation. Terrific vocal!

Cool word combinations throughout the lyric. There are a few lines that puzzle me a bit, and they still SOUND cool...

fun stuff...

floyd

Thanks to all for the very encouraging comments.
Makes me feel quite enthused.
Have got about 10 more from FAWM to redo.

The words are used more to create feelings or impressions.
For example 'Sittin in a corner lookin not cookin waitin for a big suprise'.
The picture in my mind was a person at a party, sitting back rather out of it anticipating future antics with his sweetie.

Anyhow thanks again. The comments really do give me a buzz! Cheers.

Loved the old-style vibe of the whole thing, from that piano to the Satch-esque vocals (so nicely mixed too). Just brill, from start to finish, bravo!

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.
