Charlie,

A terrific transformation. The beginning sounds so much more intimate now (as it should). Excellent mix. The production does a great job of showing off the lyric - exactly what it should do in this type song.

Well done.

floyd

Hi Charlie,

Ah...so much nicer! We agree with Floyd about the new opening ... fantastic redo! You done a wonderful job of retooling this. Congrats on on the improvements. As my grandpa would have said, "Ya done good."

Best to you,

Alan & Di

Hi guys. Thanks for listening and commenting on the revision. A good portion of suggestions made it into the revision and I think it is much improved over the first draft I posted. I really appreciate all of the input that was graciously shared here on the forum. I was also amazed at the number of views the thread received in just four days.

I checked earlier this evening and saw that reaction seems to be positive on this version so I have emailed a mp3 of it to Rudy tonight. Crossed my fingers but I think he will enjoy it.

Many thanks,

Charlie

lighter instrumentation ? Great job Charlie !

Thanks Floyd. The intro really sets the tone for the whole song. I liked adding the piano too. I never found an electric guitar that seemed to fit and another guitar seemed to make the song sound too busy if that makes sense.

Alan & Di, glad you liked the changes. I sure do. I appreciate your suggestion to eliminate the redundancy in the first line. The change helped tighten things up.

Gruverider. Thanks for posting. The intro change makes a significant difference to the mood of the song over the strumming guitars in the draft version. Glad you like the changes.

Hi Dani and thanks for posting. I agree that this version seems to have a lighter feel than the draft version. Several things seem to contribute to the change in feel starting with the finger pick guitar opening and adding the piano to the chorus of the song. I also slightly increased the tempo and that seemed to help too.

Charlie

What you have done to this song has taken it over the top for me.

This is fantastic!

Keep up the excellent work.

Ps - I really liked the intro and the violin solo!

Get Inspired with the Band-in-a-Box® Title Generator!

There can be many triggers that could inspire you to write a song... but what if you're wanting to write a song, and are having trouble finding the inspiration you need?

Jump start your creativity using the Title Generator feature in Band-in-a-Box®.

I love this feature - it delivers some beautiful results!

To access this feature:

Mac: select Edit | Chords | Auto-Generate Song Title menu command (control+shift+S). The song title will appear in the Title window! Repeat the Auto-Generate Song Title command until the program comes up with a suitable title for your song. Band-in-a-Box® will keep generating new titles for as long as it takes to get the right one.

Windows: click on the "Generate Title" button within the main screen of the program and you can choose to "auto-generate" a song title which will appear right in the Title field of your song, or for a more varied selection choose to "generate multiple titles" and you'll be taken to the Title Generator window, which can generate a list of 50 song titles for you!

I've just done this, and won't bother list all 50 here - but the "top 10" I've chosen from my generated list are:
Eloquent Laugh
Statuesque Luck
Considering a Rainbow
Brief Fling, Acknowledged
Something for a Sandpiper
Happy Runaround
Cheatin' Skies
Then Came a Rose
The Mention of My Love
Eternal Raincheck

Give it a try!

The resource for this feature can also be edited, allowing you to customize the results.
(to do this, review the file TITL1.TXT within the BB Data folder.)
