Angels can sing Rock and Roll

At least there's something we now know
there's no reason for him to go
but the difference in the way we speak and hold it tight oh no-o
at least there's something we now know
we now know angels can sing rock and roll

there's still a lot that we got left
all the memories just won't fade
gones the difference in the way we speak and hold it tight oh no-o
at least there's something we now know
we now know angels can sing rock and roll

aah just a king
ooh just a king
I'll never know
if it's gonna come true like they say
might as well do as they say
it doesn't matter

all as one we feel the same
each feels different as a name
but the difference in the way we speak and hold it tight oh no-o
at least there's something we now know
we now know angels can sing rock and roll

ooh just a king
ooh just a king
I'll never know
if it's gonna come true like they say
might as well do as they say
it doesn't matter
anymore



enjoy

Alyn

Alyn,

I will echo my comment to this song on the showcase:

I was waiting for an explosive change somewhere on the first third of the song,
(Because I really love that in your songs!) but that didn't come.......
what did come was a very cool transition, Very effective chord change like we've come to know so well in your music.

Rob

thanks Rob,

I do go quiet sometimes LOL and this song is one of the few I have written that uses a PG style verbatim. Although I am working on some more quiet songs.

Thanks for the comment grin laugh

Hi Alyn,

Loved this song. Highlights for me were:

- Vocal sound in the "ooh just a king" part
- chord progression was interesting and I loved the change on "we now know angels can sing rock and roll"
- Melancholy feel - the song fitted the style perfectly

Great job.

Having heard YOUR songs your praise is gratefully received, thank you.
I am glad you liked the chords, they seemed to logically appear one night as I strummed my guitar in front of the TV!
And yes beautiful style

Take care and all the best

I really enjoyed your song.
First, I like your voice. It's very expressive, almost Lennon-ish. And that comes from someone like me who idolize John Lennon ...
Also, I liked your chord progression - unusual enough to make it interesting.
Most of all, I like the concept of your song - brilliant.
Keep it up!

Jo

Thanks for the lovely comments, I appreciate them a lot!
I liked Lennon's music and the way George Martin recorded his voice, by inventing flanging apparently!!

Thanks for the comment about the chords, they appeared on my guitar whilst I was watching TV one night. Ended up in the dog house tho' from the dearest wifie grin

thanks again

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.

New Left-Handed & Student View Guitar Window in Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Windows!

With Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Windows, the Guitar window has been remade and now supports the left-handed (in addition to right-handed) guitar and student view!

The student view is the view a student (or YouTube video watcher) would have of the (right-handed) guitar facing him with the head at the right and low notes at the top. There's also a left-handed student view, so all 4 possible views are supported.

To change the view, press the [Guitar] toolbar button to open the Guitar window and then the [Settings] button.

See this new feature in action when you jump to the "Left-Handed & Student View Guitar Fretboard" topic in our 2020 New Features video: Click here...
