It's a french minor blues about the meeting of a guitar and a saxo.

Excellent!
I wish I had aid more attention in school so I could understand the lyrics but it made no difference as I really enjoyed that.

A good tune too, as it is stuck in my head now. laugh

Salut Chris.

Bonjour et bienvenue.

Great track. You managed to create an excellent blues, but still retain a French feel to it.

Got a lot of the lyrics on first listen and just going back for a second. Maybe you could list the lyrics on future posts to make it easier for us Brits.

Good choice of RTs and a great vocal, together with a nice mix. Looking forward to more.

ROG.

For those who whant to read the french lyrics, here they are :

1) Au pays des notes bleues,
un petit blues mineur
délivre à qui en veut
un peu de sa chaleur.
Dans le jardin des sons,
se balade une guitare.
Fleurs bleues à l'horizon,
Elle en boit le nectar.

2) Ce blues attire alors
un saxophone alto
butinant les accords,
voguant sur le tempo.
Au pays des notes bleues,
découvrant cette couleur,
le saxophone curieux
a trouvé son bonheur.

3) Dans le jardin des sons,
saxophone et guitare,
planant sur cette chanson
ont largué les amarres.
Ils sont montés très haut
comme le font deux rêveurs
partageant le solo
d'un petit blues mineur.

Bonsoir Chris,
Welcome to the forum. This is a nice first post ! The blues sound authentic and the French lyrics work for me. Being Belgian I understand them to. Very original to write about the blues itself!
Happy winter days!
Fred

Hi Chris,

welcome to the forum! Nice tune. It's no blues but nice chord changes. French lyrics are a welcome change.
Happy New Year.

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

The blues has no cultural or language barriers.

Excellent!

Formidable! A very cool sounding tune, with clever lyrics. PG Music sure has some hot guitarists in the box. Fun to get some French practice too.

This song is very original but it certainly plays to French stereotypes -- could it be that even the musical instruments in France are... amorous?

Merci bien!
Bruce

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!"

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."
