Hey all.
Wrote this about 25 years ago just redid with RT.

We used to do this in the late 1960's.
Before the net and social networking came along and killed it.

See if you can guess the melody of the tune on the intro.

Sitting round the organ - Sound Click



Me and mum and Grandma and Grandpa and the rest of the kids.
Sitting round the organ singing songs.

Thats the way it was when we were young, never be the same ever again.

Grandpa played the trumpet as he always did.
I played the comb bye his side.

Grandma played the organ and the rest would sing.
Never be the same ever again.

Chorus
...........................................................................

Sitting round the organ singing songs.
Reminisce of days long since gone.

Sitting round the organ singing song.
Singing songs.
...........................................................................

Grandmas baking pastry on the old wood stove.
Grandpa's listening closely to the ABC.

All the kids were playing as they always did.
Never be the same ever again.

How I cherish the memory and the tunes we'd play.
And now I long for better days.

Grandma played the organ and the rest would sing.
Never be the same ever again.

Chorus
...........................................................................

Sitting round the organ singing songs.
Reminisce of days long since gone.

Sitting round the organ singing song.
Singing songs.

I like it!

interesting concept for a song... it's certainly a topic that appeals to a certain segment of the population. And you executed it VERY well IMO.

Do you perform live? If not, I'm thinking you'd go over real well at restaurants or any other venue where entire families congregate.

Rob,

Your song and music describes the household and family I grew up with.
No trumpet, but piano, organ, jew's harp, harmonica. 6 kids, loving parents
helping to teach us about music and life.

Your vocals, are very relaxed and tell the story great.

Thanks for you hard work and sharing!

Sweet tribute to your family. I always enjoy your voice. Good mix.

I'd guess the song in the intro is an old Gospel hymn called "Bringing In The Sheaves."

Rob,

I really like this one. Great sentiments, and brings back a lot of great memories for a lot of us! As always, your vocals are very relaxed and convincing.

Rob,

I've listened to maybe 50 different songs from different
sources this afternoon.

I obtained a "New used" set of Logitech Z-5300 speakers.
My new sub is a bit on the strong side not your music, but just love the
"Lefts" and "Rights" speakers. You recording is crystal clear over
these speakers.

The instruments all have their spots in the song.
Liked the sound better than my ATH-40M Studio phones.
BTW, your base to me sounded just right for the song.
The trumpet really is a nice touch.
On the third listen right now.

Thanks for you nice music.

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.
