Hi, friends !:))


I got inspired by a telephone call
from a good female friend of mine
and from her postcard depicting
among other things a key !!!:))
Somehow I can´t help it, but I
do like these funky styles so much that
I decided to put the song to it:

Here are the links:

Lyrics:

YOU CALLED ME UP (by Dani) © Dani Lindroos 2014
You called me up, that made my day
though you were far, so far away, my darling, far away!
It made me feel so good to talk to you
´cause I love your voice, you know I do

I thank you for your Birthday Card to me
I long to find out where to put the pictured key, let us see
when you´re back here with me !

solo

In my sleep at night I´ll toss around and turn
I count the hours and the days to your return

You know you really made my day today
and it feels so good to know that everything is okay
so let us hope that it will stay that way
always sunny never gray

I thank you darling you´re so nice and sweet
please forgive me if I can hardly wait until we meet
you´re so neat, so neat

solo

You fill my heart with utmost joy, my dear
so it´s no wonder that I long to be you close and near
long to be you close and near, my dear !

Very nice Dani!! I think one of the things I love most in your music is the genuine passion. There's a youthful excitement that I would love to rediscover. Another pretty and inspiring song!! Love it! Take care. Greg

Dani,
I do like the falsetto in the background, I assume it is you.
This sounds like the best thank you for a birthday card I have ever heard.
Happy Birthday by the way!

enjoyed

Hi Dani,

as Greg said there is a genuine passion in this song as in many others of yours. But that "youthful excitement" implies heartaches and pain. That's why I'm glad I got rid of it in the late nineties. But I enjoy it in your songs. That makes them so true.
Very nice chords. I like that rhythm, too.
The falsetto in the background is very well done.
Go on riding that wave!

Hi, Guenter !

You are right in every aspect !
It is just that I feel I can
handle my one sided crush as
I do not have any illusions
about the future ! I like to
dream that I´m in love and it helps
me getting thru those many lonely
days I have gone thru and am still
to go !:))Maybe the loneliness
and my true feelings really are
coming thru in my songs, at least I
hope so !:))I thank you my good friend
for your most warm words. Know that I
feel humbled, yes, I do !

Cheers
Dani

"You called me up, that made my day" That's the key. Get a day made and then move on to the next. It's easy to say take them one day at a time....but isn't that really the only way to take them? Every one is a gift.

Nice! Cool chords and arrangement and vocal.....but we've come to expect that!

Band-in-a-Box® Features List!

Every version release of Band-in-a-Box® adds loads of new features and enhancements to the program, which we're sure can sometimes get "lost" in your knowledge of the program's capabilities.

Looking to learn about new features with a specific release? It's actually really easy to locate this information!

Learn tips on the new version (2019) by visiting Help | Tip of the Day and placing a check mark next to "Only Show Tips for Version 2019" (you'll also need to select "Show Tips at Startup", if it's not already).

Access the new features list for older versions in the Help Index of the program - from the left-menu, choose Contents | Features and a list of New Features will show - all the way back to Version 7!

#FeatureFriday

#TBT Band-in-a-Box® Goes to NAMM

As we get ready to head to Summer NAMM this year, we're remembering our time their last year - we had so many visitors stop by our booth!

Click here to take a peak!

Special thanks to Mike and all the RealTracks Artists and PG Endorsers who stopped by. Stay tuned for our Booth Visitors and other happenings from Summer NAMM on July 18-20, 2019! If you find yourself at the event, come say "Hi!" to us at booth 234.

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows StylePicker Feature - Finding RealTracks & MIDI SuperTracks

Did you know... Within Band-in-a-Box®, quickly find styles that use RealTracks (or MIDI SuperTracks!) in a certain range by pressing the [Other] filter button in the StylePicker window and select "Styles that contain RealTracks or MIDI SuperTracks in a number range".

#WisdomWednesday

Band-in-a-Box® Tip of the Day!

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® will show you some helpful "Tips" when you start the program? What a great way for new program users to learn all the features of the program! Want to know Tips on just the latest version? This feature can be adjusted to just show the Tips for that too.

Maybe you're a long-time user of the program, and have this feature turned off? To access Tip of the Day (450+ available!), head to Help | Tip of the Day. Your Tip will appear right away - and you'll have the option of reading the Next Tip if you wanted too! Within this window is where you would also choose to "Show Tips at Startup" (if this is unchecked, you won't see them), or "Only Show Tips for Version 2019".

Here's a few Tips the program informed me of the last time I opened Band-in-a-Box®:

In the Piano Roll window, the 'Ghost Note' function allows you to view a single-channel, and see notes on all other channels display in light grey. This is useful when working with multi-channel tracks.

Want a bigger guitar display? Drag the bottom end of the Guitar Window to change its size, or press the SETTINGS button to set a custom size.

The Printout can use left and right MARGINS. This is useful to make printouts for small paper size or 3 hole paper that requires margins.

Edit | Nudge Chords/Melody. Let's say that you have entered a complete song chord progression, and you then realize that all of the chords starting at bar 23 are 1 beat to late. You can use this feature to slide your chords over by 1 beat.
