Two versions of the song here, one with and one without Real tracks.The video was done about 3 years ago without RTs and I only remembered it when I re-did the song with RTs a week or so ago!! Recorded in my studio with a webcam and Serif Music plus8
It started as my best man's speech for my now dear departed mate Albert! A few pleasantries and thanks, a quick mention of how beautiful Sian (his bride) was and then ended with me saying I only speak for [song title} except I personalised it for Albert and I sat down to tumultuous applause and many insults from Albert laugh .
Sian agreed tho grin
As long as you make love

when i was a little boy
my father said to me
as he took me in his arms
and placed me on his knee
dont prevaricate remember what I say
and you wont have any trouble
until your dieing day

words will come and words will go
as thoughts just disappear
out your mouth into those ears
as you become on show
so dont prevaricate remember what I said
and you wont have any trouble
till youre dead

years they come and years they go
so fast that you loose count
it takes of bits and puts bits there
as you loose sight of your knees
but theres something really bugging me
its been running through my mind
see im damned if i can remember what my father said

i racked my brains i shook my mind
i turned it inside out
a thunder cracked as it started to rain
and it opened from above
then from inside my brain suddenly got what he meant
only speak for as long as you make love



RealTracks in song: ~1204:Bass, Acoustic, GypsyJazzBallad Sw 110
RealTracks in song: 1461:Guitar, Acoustic, Rhythm GypsyJazzWaltzJohn Sw 200
RealTracks in song: ~1098:Guitar, Acoustic, Rhythm JazzSwingFreddie Sw 190
RealTracks in song: ~374:Guitar, Acoustic, Strumming Hank Sw 190

I will find the original BIAB file and post the midi stuff later.

Enjoy

Hi, Alyn !:))


I liked your tune and your video !
You are a master of words also I see !:))
I had to use google translate for the
word prevaricate, but it fits the story
that you tell so brilliantly here !:))


Cheers
Dani

PS Yes, and I agree with your father !!!!(lol) !

Hello Alyn,

nice! This song kind of reminds us of 'good company' from Queen. They use a ukulele there, which actually would also
suit this song very fine.
The RT version definitely sounds a lot clearer than the original.

Keep up the good work,
R & AM

Alyn. What fun! It is great that you have two versions of the song and that you are giving them both to us to sample! I absolutely love the video. I am trying to do videos for all my original stuff and this definately gives me some ideas!

Good company by Queen.

Now THERE'S a compliment...thank you, I like the early Queen albums.
Both versions certainly show how good RTs are

Thanks for listening

This is the only video I have made that I felt confident enough to post. But I will have a go at another with praise coming from a video artiste such as you. (I have watched some of your videos on your website)
I look forward to seeing the ideas you borrow LOL

thank you
Alyn

Thanks a lot for your kind comment Greg.
The initial chords were reasonably simple and I had to work to get all those passing chords and can only thank BIAB for teaching me song structure, leading chordal voices and sequences

have a good day

Alyn

Hi Alyn. Great song. I really enjoyed it and quite a remarkable job on the video too. As another said earlier, very unique.

Regards,

Charlie

Alyn,

Nice job on that. Good mix.

The video was fun to watch.

Pondering the logic - how your conclusion was drawn...

Enjoyed.

Hi Alyn. Very enjoyable song and video. Heaps of imagination. Had to look up prevaricate though. 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."
