I'm re-posting my songs so I can update the links to my Soudcloud page. Since they've all been deleted from the site I originally used.
I will do this gradually so as not to overwhelm or be disrespectful of other posters. smile

I rediscovered and recorded this in November 2013... Has kind of an 1980's pop thing going for it.



Here's a song I wrote in 1981 (I think). I recently re-discovered it on a piece of paper I had stashed away, I kind of remembered how it went and what I didn't remember (melody), I just re-wrote. grin

This arrangement is probably quite different than I envisioned when I wrote it, but I really like how it turned out.

I'm playing all electric guitar tracks and of course all vocals. RT's I used are below. All comments welcome.

WAIT & SEE

TEMPO:110


I SIT HERE ALONE THINKIN ABOUT LOVE AND DAYS GONE BY

OF HOW WE USED TO LAUGH AND SING AND HOW WE USED TO CRY

OH THAT I COULD ONLY HOLD YOU THE WAY I USED TO DO

I DON'T BELIEVE I'M EVER GONNA FIND ANOTHER QUITE LIKE YOU


TRUE LOVE IT NEVER DIES AND I HOPE YOU REALIZE THAT I'VE LOVED

YOU OH HOW I LOVE YOU

TRUE LOVE IT NEVER ENDS WHEN YOU BELIEVE ITS HEAVEN SENT LIKE I

BELIEVE WE WERE MEANT TO BE / JUST YOU WAIT AND SEE


I CALLED YOU UP JUST TO TELL YOU THE TRUTH IN THE WAY THAT I FEEL

NO ONE GIRL HAS TAKEN YOUR PLACE AND NO ONE EVER WILL

THOUGH I KNOW YOU LIE IN THE ARMS OF SOMEONE OTHER THAN ME

I KEEP HOPIN THAT SOMEDAY SOON YOUR GONNA SEE


TRUE LOVE IT NEVER DIES AND I HOPE YOU REALIZE THAT I'VE LOVED

YOU OH HOW I LOVE YOU

TRUE LOVE IT NEVER ENDS WHEN YOU BELIEVE ITS HEAVEN SENT LIKE I

BELIEVE WE WERE MEANT TO BE / JUST YOU WAIT AND SEE

(RIDE)

WILL YOU EVER WANT ME THE WAY THAT I WANT YOU

TO STEP BACK INTO MY LIFE NO ONE ELSE WILL DO


TRUE LOVE IT NEVER DIES AND I HOPE YOU REALIZE THAT I'VE LOVED

YOU OH HOW I LOVE YOU

TRUE LOVE IT NEVER ENDS WHEN YOU BELIEVE ITS HEAVEN SENT LIKE I

BELIEVE WE WERE MEANT TO BE / JUST YOU WAIT AND SEE (x3)

Nice song Greg. I enjoyed your guitar and the vocals were spot on. You should have turned the B3 in the mix for my ears. It fit the song well.

Enjoyed my listen.

Great delivery Greg

Sensational intro, started off with a real drive and certainly kept it going throughout

Top effort.

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.
