Hello everybody,

This is my very newest jazz vocal song.
In the near future I would like to re-arrange this song for a human vocalist.
But now I introduce the vocaloid version first.

Title: kiss…
Vocal: 初音ミク(Miku Hatsune), Vocaloid
Accompanied with jazz band and trumpet.

Summary of lyrics:

Instead of tears
Instead of saying goodbye
Please kiss me tenderly
Today I understand all
Sure enough, I have loved you
But it’s over
It’s over now
This is our last kiss
.............

Style is _J085_TP.STY
RealTracks in style: ~~732:Bass, Acoustic, Jazz Ballad Sw 060
RealTracks in style: ~~742:Piano, Acoustic, Rhythm Jazz Ballad Sw 060
RealTracks in style: ~~939:Guitar, Electric, Rhythm JazzBalladFreeComp Sw 060

Hi Shigeki Adachi,

This is really beautiful. Your composition is outstanding, the backing is superbly mixed and your control of Miku is inspirational.

If you are ever in need of someone to write some English lyrics to fit this outstanding melody, let me know, I'll give it my best shot!

Wonderful music!

All the best,
Noel

Greetings Shigeki Adachi,

many of us here in the forum are self-taught musicians, but you are clearly a trained professional with astute musical sensibilities! Each of your presentations so far has been beautifully arranged with exceptional melodies and chord structure!

All of your choices add value to the composition, there is nothing accidental or in need of tweaking!

If you have already introduced yourself, I missed it... I'd like to know a little about your musical background! It is quite evident that you know your way around a song!

The ability to write a Jazz song using a vocaloid and have it sound this good is quite an accomplishment!

I love this song, love it...The structure, and arrangement is perfect, and elicits emotion. My kind of song. I do think the lyric line that you show in the summary could be tweaked a bit to be a more compatible and deserving partner of the melody and great chords. But that's just my personal opinion. This is the bones of a great song and I can't wait to hear a real singer perform it.
Best

Very beautiful music!! You are a great composer! The "band" feels so natural. Trumpet works beautifully. Nice mix and production. Everything works. I'd love to hear this sung by a really soulful singer. Great stuff! Take care. Greg

Hello, Leo, Noel, Pat, Guenter, Charlie, floyed, Carolyne, Janice & Bud, Greg and Rob

Thank you very much for taking the time to listen and comment.
I always much appreciate your very very kind words.

Noel,
“If you are ever in need of someone to write some English lyrics to fit this outstanding melody, let me know, I'll give it my best shot!”
This means that you will make English Lyrics version of “kiss…” for me?
Your offer is very happy and wonderful for me.
Much appreciated. I hope very much you will try it.
I put PDF music sheets and BIAB song file on the following link.
Please download them.

https://www.dropbox.com/sh/cl1jnxhnqx3q9uy/AAA0eP8pRT8VeZCFuW7amrCAa?dl=0

Pat,
When I was young, I passed the entrance examination for university in Tokyo.
So, I enrolled in the department of economics, but also I wanted to study music, so I had been through the Yamaha Music School at night. (Of course my parents did not know that.)
At that time Yamaha had been holding music contests continuously.
As no computers and no DAW applications did not exist in the world, the company needed many singers, players and arrangers in order to make the Demo tapes of large quantities of posted works from the whole country.
In order to cut the recording costs, the company used the Yamaha students of each class of vocal, player, composer and arranger instead of professional musicians.
I could get the skill of arrangement learning through the experience. Old stories.

Thank you very much again to all and I will post my music again.


Best Regards.

Shigeki Adachi

Hi Shigeki Adachi,

I've downloaded the files. What an amazing chord progression! This is one of the most sophisticated chord progressions in a minor key that I've ever seen. You sure know your music!

I read about your Yamaha Music School training. I used to be involved with that too! It's a great system. I learnt such a lot about music during those days. I'd love to have a StageA Electone!

Now that I have your files, I just need to spend some time listening over and over and over and see what word come to my minds. As soon as I get something, I'll let you know and see what you think smile

Back in touch soon,
Noel

I think, since u r one of the veteran her, should suggest to PG Music to make a "introduce ur self" forum or tread here. I think that would be very useful and interesting for the members....

Hello, Leo

I am so sorry, Leo.
Please forgive me.
I have never used melodist.
Writing songs gives me a lot of fun.
But melodist will take away the fun from me.
Searching notes with piano is my greatest pleasure.

Best Regards.

Hello, Noel

Thank you again for your offer.
By the way, as you know Yamaha music school and Electone very well.
Possibly, have you ever been staying in Japan?

I look forward to your lyrics very much.

PG Music News
RealBand® Works Great in Windows® 11!

Here's an introductory look at RealBand® running on the preview version of Windows® 11!

Watch the video.

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...

Do you have something to say about Band-in-a-Box®? Post your own thoughts for Windows or Mac version today!

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."
