Hi All,

I re-did this song as I was informed (correctly) that it sounded too much like Run-a-Round Sue.

Hope it doesn't sound like it anymore but no doubt someone will let me know

It is called Memories

I used all sorts of RealTracks that I'm afraid I lost track (no Pun intended)

The lyrics are:
As my time has nearly run
And look back on those days of fun
Treasuring all those memories
Those happy days and your love for me

We'd walk along the beach at night
Holding hands and hugging tight
The stars the sea it was so right
Your smile was true and oh so bright

Memories
Memories
Memories of days gone bye

Remembering all those years ago
When life was sweet and oh so slow
How we'd laughed and splashed around
Now our feet are back on the ground

All those evergreen yester - years
We laughed and cried but had no fear
Memories of days gone past
We should have known they wouldn't last

Instrumental

Memories
Memories
Memories of days gone bye

Remembering all those years ago
When life was sweet and oh so slow
Memories of days gone past
We should have known they wouldn't last


Let me know what you think

Best regards
George

Hi Michee,

I thoroughly enjoyed listening to Memories. I must say, your musical skills are definitely getting better and better. I really liked the way you arranged this song with some vocals doubled/harmonized and some not. You chose all the right places to get the best effect.

I love the phrase "evergreen yester-years". How cool is that line! I'd love to have thought of it

All the best,
Noel

Hi Noel,

Thanks for your nice comments.

I tried to experiment with the vocals after I heard/seen Dan's vocal video.
The harmony TC Helicon in Band in a Box didn't quite work as I intended (my fault)
So I played around with doubling the vocal track and the volume envelope in Reaper.
The song isn't perfect and I still have a lot to learn, but it is fun to try new things.

Best regards
George

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows!

There are Notation Enhancements in the NEW Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows! These include:
•A new button in the Print Options dialog which lets you quickly print a "chords only" fake sheet. You can also access this from the right-click menu on the chord sheet.
•A new track type (Drums) is now 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 The line.)
•Double-clicking on the Standard mode Notation window (or on the time line in Editable or Staff Roll mode) plays the song from the current time location. Previously, it played the song from the beginning of the current bar.
•Holding down the [Ctrl] key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
•In The Notation Windows Options dialog, The clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
•Pressing The space bar plays the song from the current time location, not the current bar.
•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's a keystroke entry notation mode - the 'N' mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, up/down cursor to change its pitch, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
•You can now edit any track in the Event List Editor. When The dialog opens, it will show you the MIDI data in the current Notation track.
•You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
