Dear Forum Friends,
I hope everyone is having fun tonight. I've been listening in on all your new songs. I'm just humbled to be able to have a new offering for your entertainment.
You'll probably never come across a song about someone's mother-in-law that's so upbeat and positive but you would be too if you're wife's mom was anything like Jelly Jo. She is one unique lady. The song only scrtatches the surface. We had a lot of fun writing it. and thankfully Jo likes it too. We hope you will as well.

Here's the link:

http://www.soundclick.com/player/single_player.cfm?songid=12900698&q=hi&newref=1


Here are the RTs:
Style is _LAZYJZM.STY (Piano Trio Medium Slow)

444:Bass, Acoustic, Jazz Sw 140 ('2' only)
446:Guitar, Electric, Rhythm Jazz Sw 140
RealDrums in style: JazzBrushes: a: Brushes Swirling b: Brushes Busier

Also, this was my first experiment with a "Sectional Verse" or "Prelude". They used to be a popular song element and often used is songs from musicals.

Enjoy

Cool prelude. This is your best, I think.

A good upbeat one...

Hi SpaceDog,

Very entertaining; terrific melody and arrangement. I always like listening to a good, uplifting, upbeat tune. I agree with floyd. I reckon this is one of the best I've heard from your songwriting catalogue.

All the best,
Noel

Charlie,
Thanks. I'm glad you liked it. I can't recall talking to you before. Nice to meet you!


Floyd,
Thanks for listening. My wife had a huge say in writing and arranging this one. Credit goes to her.

Alyn,
I'm glad you liked it. I know, it's really unusual to actually like your mother-in-law. What can I say. Just lucky I guess.

Josie,
Thanks. Always good to hear from you. Jo's full name is Joephine, of course. Do they ever call you Jo?

Guenter,
Vielen dank! I appreciate your kind words. The BGVs are always tough for me despite being a student of music.

Greg,
Thanks for listening. I like that word "feelgood" I think I use it in the description. Thanks.

Noel,
Good to hear from you! Thanks for comments. It seems people like my fun upbeat tunes better. Curious.


We so glad you all liked the song. More comments and replies later.

SpaceDog

Hi SD,

Well this is very nice! That says a lot, since we could't care less about jazz music grin
So this is a very fine exception. Good work and cool vocals.
(And nice to hear such positive words about a mother in law..... says Anne-Marie, being one herself).

Regards,
R & AM

just when I thought that all of the possible song topics had been used to death, you came up with a pro-mother in law song! Awesome! I Like it!

My mother in law was a real treasure to me too, so I understand how that relationship can be much better than its stereotype.

The flow and feel of the song did an excellent job of conveying the positive energy between in-laws! Looking for a direct comparison style-wise, it reminded me early 60s rock like Ricky Nelson

R & AM,
Thanks for listening and your kind words. I'm glad you gave it a chance despite the genre. There's a lot of great stuff in the jazz genre. I marvel at their skill and creativity.
By the way, I always loved visiting The Netherlands especially Amsterdam. In fact I have a picture of "the dam" in my family room.

Dani,
Thanks for the reminder. Here's the cloud link. Enjoy.

Pat,
Your first comment made me laugh out loud (I know there's a text abbreviation for that but I hate texting.) I'm glad you liked it. She a real gem.


FMM
Thanks. The vocals stretch my low range in the prelude. That low G is about the ground floor for me. You wouldn't want to hear the F!
Glad you enjoyed it.

SD

It certainly has a classic "song from a musical" sound to it.

Well done.

Dani,
Thanks so much. I'm glad you liked it.

Janice and Bud,
Thanks. I'm really lucky. I hope your mother is doing well. Mine, not so much. (see "Forget Me Not)


Herb,
Thanks, that's just what I was going for. Glad you enjoyed it.

SD, that intro is really good, a back to the future Tin Pan Alley thing!

Everything about this is top shelf.

Super song!

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."
