My nieghbour had written a song (lyrics only) when she was a little girl, she is now a pensioner.
Well, she asked me if I could do anything with the lyrics and turn it into a song for her.

Here is my attempt to do this for her: Waulkmill Bay
I know it seems a little repetitive, but, I just used her Lyrics as she had written them.

Hope you enjoy.

Best regards
George

Lyrics

When I Think Of Orkney
And I Think Of Orkney Often
I Think Of You
By Waulkmill Bay
How We Walked Hand In Hand
Along The Silver Sand
And Whispered Words Of Love
By Waulkmill Bay

When I Remember Orkney
And I Remember Orkney Often
I Remember You By Waulkmill Bay
With The Moonlight In Your Eyes
And The Softest Summer Sighs
Drifting O'er The Sea
By Waulkmill Bay

When I Dream Of Orkney
And I Dream Of Orkney Often
I Dream Of You By Waulkmill Bay
Running Barefoot On The Sand
Once Again I Hold Your Hand
And Whisper I Love You
By Waulkmill Bay

When I Return To Orkney
And I Shall Return To Orkney
I'll Return To You By Waulkmill Bay
I Will Find You Waiting There
With The Sunshine On Your Hair
And Our Love Will Bloom Again
By Waulkmill Bay

When I Think Of Orkney
And I Think Of Orkney Often
I Think Of You
By Waulkmill Bay

Hi George,

I congratulate you on a wonderful song. I really really enjoyed the journey To my ears, this is the best song of yours I've heard. It didn't sound repetitive at all. For me, the repetition was an important lyric device that acted to highlight the reflective nature of the main character's thoughts. Your melody and chord progression were a perfect match for your friends words and you iced the cake with an excellent choice of instruments.

To my way of thinking, these lyrics are exemplary. They very competently show how the emotional impact of a song's words is boosted by (a) varying the poetic meter of the lines, (b) strategic and minimal use of asymmetric rhyme, (c) lyric repetition and (d) strong lyric development by increasing the emotional weight of successive sections. I've also got to say that your choices for the musical phrases that these lyrics rested on made the words shine and sparkle; excellent prosody.

All in all, it's "Wow!" from me.

All the best,
Noel

George,

Beautiful music you created for her lyrics.
The simplicity of the first 1:11 with violin and guitar
sounds so nice, then bringing in the strings is a good touch.

I'd think your neighbor friend is extremely happy with the way
you brought her story to life.

Your vocals sound great to me, also they really fit the music
and its meaning.

Thank you for sharing your hard work, music and friends song with us!

Hi Tano Music,

Thank you for that.
I don't think it was just me, it just happens.
Where it comes from, well I think it comes from a higher source, but why me, I have no idea

George

Hi George, it appears as though my first message is in PGMusic purgatory! That has been happening to me a lot lately!

Anyway I wanted to say that I enjoyed your song. Great lyrics so be sure to tell you neighbor that, along with a super backing track and some excellent vocals.

Great job on a great song.

Hi George,
I enjoyed your song very much. You made a very nice arrangement and great vocal. I loved the simplicity of the opening. You made an excellent job writing this song given the lyrics - always more difficult when not your own lyrics. I am sure the lady will be very happy with this song. Vert well done.

Best Regards
Jim

Hi MarioD,
Thank you for taking a listen.
I will pass on your good words to my neighbour.
I did experiment with the vocals by trying different EQ, Reverb and volume settings.
What I arrived at was what you hear.

Regards
George

Fixed: Pressing "M" key in Editable Notation to insert a new note at the current time location on the Staff was inserting a duplicate note rather than inserting it above an existing note.

Fixed: Dragging a file into the tracks window didn't always result in the effects slot for the track being setup properly for the file type dragged in.

Fixed: Accidental element that specified whether a note was displayed as sharp/flat wasn't eing saved to XML, even though the correct pitch of the note itself was saved.

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit for macOS Catalina

With Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit for Mac we added Drum Notation Support, and we didn't stop there! Other Notation Enhancements added in this new version are:

-A new track type (Drums) is 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 it.
-Holding down the control key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
-In the Notation Window Options dialog, the clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
-Notation is much clearer, not jagged, on retina screens.
-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 is a keystroke entry mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, M to enter a third note, up/down cursor to change the pitch of the highlighted note, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
-You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
