Finally discovered the harmony button in RB and had a bit of fun with it!

https://soundcloud.com/tuigorge/questions

No drums
Bass RT 1123 - Country waltz
Guitar RT1297 - Resonator
Harmonizer -1 down verses - 1 up chorus

Any comments or suggestions welcome.

Questions

I tucked in my boy Kissed him good-night
Stood by the doorway turned out the light
A small voice in the darkness stopped me in my tracks
my son has a question got to go back – and it's

where does the light go when you turn off the switch
what do I see with my eyes shut
why do things grow and what makes the snow
why cant I breathe under-water

I sat down on his bed thought for a while
I scratched my head and said with a smile
No-one knows the answers to all of these queries
You'll hear some strange stories and fanciful theories - and it's

where does the light go when you turn off the switch
what do I see with my eyes shut
why do things grow and what makes the snow
why cant I breathe under-water

Allow all these mysteries to be something to see
in your mind as you slide into slum – ber
Then when you a-wake theres a path you will take
- into wonder

where does the light go when you turn off the switch
what do I see with my eyes shut
why do things grow and what makes the snow
why cant I breathe under-water

Nice work! You always have some great lyrical ideas. It might be interesting to put different questions into each chorus, although that's of course unconventional. Enjoyable listen! Take care. Greg

Thanks Greg. That would be a good idea and would allow the song to expand considerably. Cheers.

My goodness Rich I just love the lyrical directions your songs take. Isn't the harmony thing in RB a wonderful thing?

There are just somethings we are not meant to understand.

Loved it.

You're a fountain of cool and different lyrics. The lucky ones amongst us retain the childhood wonderment you so ably expressed. Nice!!

Thanks Joanne. The harmony thing is great. Must play with it some more. I think there are more questions than answers. Cheers.

Thanks Guenter. So much to explore . So many toys to play with. Cheers.

Jan and Bud. Thanks for the lovely comments. People keep telling some of us (well me anyway) to grow up, but hell, what's the rush. I'm only 73. Cheers.

Thanks Gruverider. Glad you liked it. The harmonizer certainly supports the vocals and i will explore it further. That's almost the last of the songs from FAWM and I'm looking forward to doing some new ones. Cheers.

Thanks Dani for your very generous comments. Cheeers.

"theres a path you will take

it's a path we take every time we click on one of your songs!

Your songs are a joy to listen to...

I'm a fan.

Good song. Easy to relate to. I've just started playing with RB recently and hadn't found the harmonizer yet myself.

Regards,

Charlie

Hi Rich,

As everyone else has already said, fantastic work with the lyric!

Also, someone else mention a different set of questions for each successive chorus. In Folk & Country music, that's not common but also not unusual. They're referred to as an "Evolving Chorus". I've used that technique on at least half a dozen songs I've written in that past few years. But, I digress.

That was a wonderful listen ... still have a smile on my face. Great stuff, my friend!

Alan & Di

Fabulous comment Floyd. Thanks so much. Now if I could just learn to do productions like yours! Cheers.

Thanks Charlie. I do 90% of the song in Real Band. Have learned to use only a few of it's features and keep finding new ones. Actually those are questions I've always wondered about. Cheers.

Thanks Al. The evolving chorus is such a good idea. Could certainly lead the song to new places. Delighted to give you a smile. Cheers.

Rich, I L-O-V-E this!!!

A chorus with one inner rhyme and a song with lyrics that made my jaw drop and left me wanting more. Another super surprise.

Vocals, mix, production, excellent!

Thanks Scott for your generous comments. Delighted to suprise you! The light/awareness question will always fascinate me. When conditions are right it just appears then under different conditions it just disappears. Cheers.

Hi Patrick. I'm glad you enjoyed it and thanks for the comment. Cheers.

PG Music News
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."
