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.

Built-in Audio Chord Wizard Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2020!

Our Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Windows version includes some great enhancements to the Built-in Audio Chord Wizard!

-The built-in Audio Chord Wizard is now accessible from the [Audio Chord Wizard] button.
-The Audio Edit window now displays chords and tempos for each bar. They are shown when the Audio Chord Wizard mode is active so that you can see the tempo for each bar as you set the bar lines.
-When you start entering bar lines, the program automatically sets the tempo to the tempo of the first bar.
-Once the tempo of the first bar is set, the program automatically moves the location of the first bar of audio over so that the visual space of the count-in bars is visible.
-After you’ve added the bar lines, IF you adjust the first or second bar and the tempo of the first bar changes accordingly, the program automatically changes the tempo of the song to match.
-Multi-window display. This gives the Audio Chord Wizard a multi-window view so that you can see and edit both the Audio Edit window and the Chords Sheet at the same time. This display is best viewed with a small toolbar mode. This allows you to see the chords as they are being interpreted by the wizard.
-The Audio Chord Wizard can send the transcribed MIDI notes to the Soloist track for further analysis by the user (via Piano Roll or Notation window). Note that this is a "snapshot" view every 8th note of the pitches present, not an attempt at polyphonic transcription. To use this feature, enable the "MIDI to Soloist" check box.

Read more about these enhancements here, or jump to the New Feature - Audio Chord Wizard (ACW) Enhancements section of our New Features video here.
