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
RealTracks in style: ~494:Trumpet, Jazz Ballad Sw 085
RealDrums: RealDrums in Style: JazzBrushes#1: a: JazzBrushes#1b: JazzBrushes#1

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
-Carolyne

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.

There can be many triggers that could inspire you to write a song... but what if you're wanting to write a song, and are having trouble finding the inspiration you need?

Jump start your creativity using the Title Generator feature in Band-in-a-Box®.

I love this feature - it delivers some beautiful results!

To access this feature:

Mac: select Edit | Chords | Auto-Generate Song Title menu command (control+shift+S). The song title will appear in the Title window! Repeat the Auto-Generate Song Title command until the program comes up with a suitable title for your song. Band-in-a-Box® will keep generating new titles for as long as it takes to get the right one.

Windows: click on the "Generate Title" button within the main screen of the program and you can choose to "auto-generate" a song title which will appear right in the Title field of your song, or for a more varied selection choose to "generate multiple titles" and you'll be taken to the Title Generator window, which can generate a list of 50 song titles for you!

I've just done this, and won't bother list all 50 here - but the "top 10" I've chosen from my generated list are:
Eloquent Laugh
Statuesque Luck
Considering a Rainbow
Brief Fling, Acknowledged
Something for a Sandpiper
Happy Runaround
Cheatin' Skies
Then Came a Rose
The Mention of My Love
Eternal Raincheck

Give it a try!

The resource for this feature can also be edited, allowing you to customize the results.
(to do this, review the file TITL1.TXT within the BB Data folder.)
