Hi everyone,

Here is my first song recorded with the PG Music tools (BiaB and RB). Sorry for the french, it's my language wink

L'Oiseau Blanc

The lyrics are about the plane that could have fallen into the sea in 1927, very near St-Pierre and Miquelon (french archipelago close Newfoundland CA). Flying "L'Oiseau Blanc" (the white bird), Nungesser and Coli was the two adventurers who have tried to cross the Atlantic just before Lindbergh, but from Paris to North-America.

Nellie (not Nelly as wrongly written some days ago) is a third character, from my imagination.

The basic style is _CLTREEL (celtic reel) so :
1162 : Accoustic Bass (Trev. Hutchinson)
1164 : Guitar Celtic Rhytm. (Quinn Bachand)
RDrum : Bodhram (Quinn Bachand)

And I have added:
426 : Banjo bluegrass (Scott Vestal)
1880: Guitar Resonator (Train Rob)

Bluegrass instruments fit very well the celtic style, what gives me realizing how it is the irish migrants who have invented the bluegrass music.

Regards
Pascal

Hi Pascal, I enjoyed listening to your song. The instruments that you chose work well together and I like the sound. You have a very good voice as well. I look forward to hearing more from you.

Salut Pascal !
Ta chanson me plaît beaucoup. Les paroles sont poétiques, la musique est entraînante. Le banjo sur le refrain est judicieux. J'enseigne la musique à des enfants de 10 ans et je pense que si tu me le permets, je leur apprendrai volontiers ! Christian

Salut Pascal.

Une très bonne chanson que j'aime beaucoup. Comme Chris a dit deja, la musique est entraînante.

Le banjo et le Dobro sont excellent. Les paroles sont un petit peu trop vite pour mon français, donc peut-être j'ai besion d'écoute une fois encore!

Tu as fait très bien pour ta chanson première sur le forum.

ROG.

Hello Pascal,

This is a very nice French song, not too many on this forum.
Well sung and a very good choice of Realtracks.

Thank you very much every one, what an "élan" of kind words !
I am also open to any constructive criticism. Don't hesitate.

- David, I think about adding here my lyrics in french.

- Christian, tu peux faire chanter tes petits choristes sur ce morceau bien que que je me demande s'il est bien adapté aux enfants de cet age, pas au niveau des paroles, mais celui du rythme qui est quand même un peu saccadé. Mais je peux me tromper; fais moi écouter le résultat si tu en as l'occasion.

Didn't have the time to listen to all your achievements, but I am going to do it progressively (never enough time with 24 hours a day mad )

Below, my lyrics as promised :

Nellie a la tête en l'air, elle regarde passer les avions
Elle tient ça de son grand père qui en avait l'obsession
Un jour qu'il était en mer, qu'il taquinait le poisson
Le brouillard s'est ouvert sur une fugace apparition

Refrain :
Laisse moi faire jolie Nellie, pour toi je trouverai l'oiseau blanc
Dans la mer où sont tombés, Nungesser et coli
Pour te plaire jolie Nellie, je ratisserai l'océan
Je ferai la route en arrière, de St-Pierre à Paris

Seul à Nellie, son grand-père, a raconté ce qu'il a vu
La priant de se taire, sur le drôle d'oiseau aperçu
Elle n'a fait aucun commentaires, si bien que personne n'a jamais su
Pourquoi tout ce qui passe en l'air, elle a les yeux rivés dessus

Refrain

J'étais à ma fenêtre, par une belle journée de ciel bleu
les gens qui marchaient par terre, je n'en voyais que les cheveux
Elle est passée le regard en l'air, le mien est tombé dans ses yeux
et soudain c'était clair, j'en étais tombé amoureux

Refrain

J'ai voulu la revoir, pour la connaître un peu plus
J'étais pas dans sa mémoire, elle ne m'avais jamais vu
Mais à force d'y croire, à mes fins je suis parvenu
Et elle m'a raconté l'histoire que son grand-père a vécu.

Refrain x 2


Pascal Asselin

fun! i def am looking forword to playing around with some of the celtic realtstyles. i came from loop based music (and technically realstyles kinda uses that as well in a way) but celtic royatly free multitrack/looped samples is often one thing very hard to come by. so its nice to have a set of that for realstyles/realtracks :-)

A great arrangement for sure.

The harmonies fitted so well, and the Bodhram slotted in perfectly.

Very enjoyable.

Pascal,

This slipped past me first time around. I'm glad that Evenios brought it back. I really like this a lot. You have a knack for creating great melodies that invite the listener to hum along. I don't understand the words but I loved the sound of them and the way they flowed. Your whole presentation is first class!

Very, very entertaining!

All the best,
Noel

Hey, thanks a lot for all these last congratulations !

I have no so much experience Pat, but over all, the miracle comes from BiaB. Of course I make the air, lyrics, I sing and control some parameters of the orchestration but so many things arrive randomly from BiaB !

Cheers
Pascal

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!

My New Favorite Thing - Extra Style PAK #9 with Loop Pack #2

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!
