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

Nice job on that. Good mix.

Enjoyed.

Fixed: In Chords Window, you could not enter held chords on Piano track.
Fixed: LeadSheet might not display tied notes on the last bar of a track.
Fixed: Pressing "M" key in Editable Notation to insert a new note at the current time location on the Staff was inserting a duplicate note rather than inserting it above an existing note.
Fixed: Loading in a MusicXML file could result in MIDI notes of zero instead of the currect MIDI notes.
Fixed: Dragging a file into the tracks window didn't always result in the effects slot for the track being setup properly for the file type dragged in.
Fixed: When inserting hard rest, and answering Yes to question about removing notes for the peg, it would remove notes from both clefs instead of the clef that the rest was inserted on.
Fixed: Potential access violation when deleting a note in staff window.

Fixed: Hammer ons, pull offs, and slides are now being saved to MusicXML files.
Fixed: Exceptionally jittery timing indicator in the notation window during playback compared to older versions of RealBand.

Fixed: Potential access violation if song has micro-pegs and multiple notes on a peg.
Fixed: Accidental element that specified whether a note was displayed as sharp/flat wasn't eing saved to XML, even though the correct pitch of the note itself was saved.

Summary of Changes in Build 5 (Oct 10)
Fixed: Sometimes the position of the VST/DX plugs window (even if not visible) would prevent a drop, such as into the drop station, from occurring.

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit for macOS Catalina

With Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit for Mac we added Drum Notation Support, and we didn't stop there! Other Notation Enhancements added in this new version are:

-A new track type (Drums) is 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 it.
-Holding down the control key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
-In the Notation Window Options dialog, the clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
-Notation is much clearer, not jagged, on retina screens.
-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 is a keystroke entry mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, M to enter a third note, up/down cursor to change the pitch of the highlighted note, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
-You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
