Its Time (the Last Farewell) with Cheryl Teal

Hi All
I haven't been writing much lately. This StreetJelly thing is eating up all my spare time! A musician called Cheryl Teal came across my original music on Soundcloud and asked if she could perform "Its Time". I said sure. We have become firm cyber friends and this resulted in this cyber-collaboration on the song. Most of you will have heard the song before but Cheryl's beautiful voice puts such a different spin on it that you may want to take another listen.

Tracks are as follow:
RealTracks in style: ~700:Bass, Electric, PopHalfNotesPush Ev 085
RealTracks in style: 1856:Cello, Background PopCountry Ev 085
RealTracks in style: 838:Guitar, Electric, Rhythm PopBalladClean Ev 085
RealTracks in style: ~703:Guitar, Acoustic, Strumming Spirited Ev 085
RealTracks in song: 1145:Fiddle, Background CountrySwing Sw 085 (Outside)
RealDrums in style: NashvilleEven16^5-a:Snare, HiHat , b:Snare, Ride

Very pretty!! I'm not sure if I have heard the song. It's very sweet. Your voices work well together. I love the fiddle too, and the video. Great work!! Take care. Greg

Hi Josie,

your voices chime together so well.
Cheryl is an enrichment for your song.
Liked the video, too.

Joanne,

Nicely done.

The video is cool. I thought you should have been in the forefront for that first verse and have Cheryl be "translucelent" and then swap that around later... and.. how about having one of your kids playing fiddle (faking, of course) off to the side and back and more translucent ( like Cheryl's harmony image)...and turn that on and off as the fiddle plays... smile

Enjoyed it.

Very nice Joanne! Isn't it fun when voices
blend together well? Adds another whole
perspective to a production. Cyber collabs
are great -- so cool we have the technology
to do it. Your mix is nice and airy (I use that
a lot -- hope it expresses what I'm saying)
and as mentioned the fiddle works very well.

We enjoyed the listen and the view!

WOW! This is one super collaboration!

You voices blend so well together! That coupled with the fact that you have an outstanding backing track equals one super performance!

The vid was also very good.

You two should do more together!

Joanne, Great collar. A fine mix that captures the blend of the vocals. The fiddle was a good choice. Very nice overall. I enjoyed it. Tom

Greg - This was the first song I posted to the forum in about November 2012 when I purchased BIAB.

Robert, Josie, Charlie, Guenter, Tommy , Patrick, Rich, Bud and Janice, Mario and Alyn – Thanks so much for giving the song another listen. Cheryl has such a beautiful voice. Thanks for the thumbs up on the fiddle.

Floyd – I did have plans to do something along the lines of changing the focus from me to Cheryl in each of the two versus. However, I messed about so long with the video that in the end I just thought “that’s it, I’ve had enough of this now!” The problem was trying to get rid of the vertical lines (because I was trying to transpose my image on the left and Cheryl’s image on the right) and also trying to synch up the video with the track sound. Trying to match the colours and hues of the two videos was also a pain in the butt! My computer doesn’t handle big video files very well. In retrospect I should just have got both videos reshot on a plain white background. It is so interesting making these videos though because just like BIAB you learn each and every time. Btw..having my children in the video (and maybe even the dog) is a great idea. You always see children and dogs on those videos that go viral! Will definitely be doing that in my next one.

Hi Lawrence and Dani
Thanks for giving the video a whirl. Glad you like it. Btw there is another original on the way! Very excited. Cheryl has applied her talents in putting music to a set of my lyrics that I was battling with. That should be out soon.

Hi Joanne,

This is spectacular. On every possible level, you have created a work of art that shines with professionalism. You and Cheryl sound incredibly good together.

Just "Wow!"

All the best,
Noel

Nice collab. The internet makes so many more things possible these days that would never have happened in any other way.

I enjoyed the song. Good sound on the guitar real tracks and the vox were nice. Excellent job on the harmonies.

The video was not ready yet. As Floyd pointed out....and sync issues.

I switched away from the vid and let the music play and browsed some of the comments. Music gets a thumbs up... video.... not so much.

Hello Josie,

I'm hearing this song for the first time, and I have to say I really like it! A very nice close harmony sound, and also a very nice video.
A small tip: Cheryl's voice could be mixed in slightly louder in the verses
Are you doing any additional acoustic guitar strumming in this recording, or is it just the Strumming Spirited real track?

Regards,
Rob

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows was released in December 2018, and included many new features and enhancements - like the enhancements we made to our Notation window!

These include:
-Pressing the space bar plays the song from the current location.
-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.
-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.
-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 it.
-In the Notation Windows Options dialog, the clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
-The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
-You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
-A new track type (Drums) is available for the Melody and Soloist tracks.
-Holding down the Ctrl key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
-There's a keystroke entry 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.
-A new button in the Print Options dialog lets you quickly print a "chords only" fake sheet. You can also access this from the right-click menu on the Chord Sheet.
-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.


There's detailed information on our 2019 notation enhancements here: Band-in-a-Box® 2019 New Feature - Notation Enhancements

Love this time saving feature.

Ever fill in the chordsheet fully or for part of song, and then discover you want to add or take away an extra beat or more somewhere in the chordsheet.

Nudge chords (melody) from the Edit Menu is your friend here, the dialog will give you all the options either to remove or add beats where its needed.

Love it.
