Okay, here’s the last word from me for a while. I have truly enjoyed participating on this forum, and have learned a thing or two about the production side of the music. Failed at learning ME however (smile). I write these songs, because as good as the professional writers are today, they don’t always write for me and my experiences and emotions in a way in which I can relate. So, I decided I’d just write for myself. Since Christmas I have written five songs and I cannot tell all of you how much I appreciate your input and kind words. I don’t just write for the accolades, although musicians do love that immediate gratification from audiences and peers. I write for the love of the music. With that here is the last song that I intend to post for a while. Going to spend time trying to listen to all of your songs and concentrate on other projects (I’m also writing a screenplay). So, with that here's my little song. It's a short one.


BALFRED Style: Can’t find a better band
RB 742 – Acoustic Piano – Miles Black
RB732 – Acoustic Bass – Neil Swainson
RB 937 – Guitar – Oliver Gannon
RB49- Alto Sax – P J Perry
RealDrums Jazz sticks – Terry Clarke

Equipment:
BIAB 2015
Focusrite Scarlett 6i6
Sterling 69 Condenser mic
Audacity

WITHOUT YOU THERE IS NO SPRING
Did I misunderstand?
Did I overstate our plans?
When you said that you were leaving,
Were my eyes closed, were my ears deceiving?

Now the seasons grow somewhat shorter
And my heart can find no songs to sing
Too soon, each year, I greet December
Because without you, there is no spring.

Carolyne,

I've enjoyed every song you posted here. This one especially, because it may take a while before hearing another pearl of your singing voice. This is again a great write, production and performance.
Glad you keep on following us here.
Wish you a lot of fun en succes with your writing, let us know how it goes when you comment, from time to time. Will listen from time to time to your songs on deezer or soundcloud.
Greetings
Fred

Hi Carolyne

Your name always pops out at me when I see it in the User Showcase.

I always know that something a bit extraordinarily special will come along.

This song is no exception.

Wishing you all the best for your current endeavors, but more than that, looking forward to what you come back with next - you will be back, won't you?

Best to you and don't stay away too long

In the meantime, peel me a grape

Trevor

Good song... You do the vocal jazz so well. There are none better, that I can recall, here on this forum.

I enjoyed working with you on the song a few weeks back.... I understand you have other things to do but don't be a complete stranger around here.

Hi Carolyne,

this is a great one again. We will miss your beautiful voice. Don't take too long until you return.

I enjoyed your time here sharing your talent, skills and graciousness. You are exiting with a bang and leaving us wanting more.

Wouldn't disappoint me any for an encore......

Good luck with your screenplay. That's something I've always desired to do. Even purchased the "Screenplay for dummies" book once.

Enjoyed the song.

Charlie

Another beauty neighbor!! Please stay in touch and post a new one now and then. You are a unique and wonderful contribution to the forum. I too am a huge film fan. I have had ideas for screenplays but never gotten to work on it. Take care. Greg

Always enjoy hearing your posts. You just ooze it right from the core girl. Too bad I'm so far away, I'd love to see your live show.

Good luck with your screenplay!

Enjoy listening to your phrasing on this. You have a nice sense of timing. Good luck with your screenplay. Perhaps you'll continue posting a song every now and then, I hope!

On top of the usual varieties we offer for Piano, Guitar, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet, Bass, Tuba, Trumpet, Trombone, and more - our RealTracks library also offers a nice selection of Shakuhachi and Kalimba - there's even a Koto RealTrack included in Set 212!

Kalimba: RealTracks Set 271

Just because Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac is here doesn't mean we've forgotten our 2019 users!

Review - Loops-with-Style PAK 2 for Band-in-a-Box® 2020

"Dr. Dave" Walker is at it again! You may remember his recent reviews of both Band-in-a-Box 2020 for Mac and Xtra Styles PAK 9 - now he has something to say about our Loops-with-Style PAK 2 - check it out: Click here to read...

With money being tight for most musicians, this is a wonderful gift for those on a limited budget. At $29, it offers months and years of fun and experimentation, bringing many ideas to fruition as songs with enough variation so that your audience doesn’t jump to "aw, that's a computer!" while still keeping the power of the software in your hands.
-"Dr. Dave" Walker

Thank you again Dr. Dave for the great review!

I set up an eight bar progression with some simple pushes, shots, holds, and rests for reference. Then I started auditioning styles--Three hours later, I am invigorated, inspired, and just plain smiling big. Really CHOICE! From "down to earth" to eclectic, this is a really fun pak.

Great job, folks!
