Hi Ken,

That was a really nice listen. I love the hook! It's such a wonderful way of looking at the effect of time. Very creative.

Is it possible to post the lyrics? There were some words that I couldn't appreciate properly - even after a few listens. That could well be related to the fact that I'm Australian but it would be great to be able to see the whole story.

All in all, wonderful!

Noel

Thank you for the comments. For those who asked my mother is doing well, and wishes y'all could see the rainbows. She cried when she heard the song, I'm taking that as a compliment

Noel96 I am pasting the words to this song


Rainbows Around the Moon
(Verse 1)
Mama sits on the back porch breathing
Gazing at the empty chair
Talking to the cool wind drifting
Never seems to be unaware
Visits with the angels listening
Golden shadows lighting off her hair
Satisfied with a knowing smile
Says goodnight to the breathless sky

(Chorus)
She watches rainbows around the dark moon
Talks to angels in her palace room
Dances in the hope of glory
Prays to God she’ll be going home soon

Verse 2
She pours a glass of that Texas sweet tea
Walks along an unpaved road
Talks of days of misty tear stains
Soft and low while her hunger grows
Knows one day when the angels are calling
She’ll see her loved ones there
Talks of Jesus, I can almost see Him
While she sings and old time hymn

(Chorus and Instrumental)

(Bridge)
She dreams in colors of the moonlit rainbow
Keeps her change in an old fruit jar
Wishes on a four leaf clover
Wanders off among the stars

(Chorus)

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.
