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

Regards
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

RealBand 2019 - A New Look!

Have you opened up your RealBand 2019 yet? You may notice that we've given it a fresh new look! In fact, there are now 3 different looks to RealBand.

See for yourself! Within the program, visit Options | Icon Set and choose from: Classic, Modern 1, or Modern 2.

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows - Choosing to Run 64-bit or 32-bit

We heard you! With the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows we've included the BRAND NEW 64-bit version of Band-in-a-Box®, which works well with the latest plugins and 64-bit OS features! Because not everyone has a 64-bit computer, we include both the 64-bit and 32-bit versions with your purchase - you choose which one to use!

By default, when you install your Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows the 32-bit version will run.

The steps to run the 64-bit version are simple! Just head to your "bb" folder and choose the "bbw64" icon - you'll notice that the Band-in-a-Box® "splash screen" will state "64-bit" as the program opens.
(and if you open the 32-bit version, the "splash screen" will state "32-bit")

Still not certain which version you're running? Within the program, go to Help | About Band-in-a-Box - it'll either state:

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2019 (604)
<--- the number in brackets is the build number - this will change as new patch updates are released
64 bit application

or:

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2019 (604)
<--- the number in brackets is the build number - this will change as new patch updates are released
32 bit application

We hope everyone who can is enjoying their Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit version for Windows!

NEW! Style-style-style Additions and Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows!

With over 64 new features and enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019, we've made sure to add to, enhance, and update some of the Style features within the program: StylePicker, StyleMaker, and Song Titles browser within the StylePicker!

StylePicker Enhancements:
-If the style list needs rebuild, it tells you that within the StylePicker, instead of a message that requires a response.
-The rebuild is faster than before by 75%. It takes 1/4 of the time now.
-While the style list is being rebuilt, you can see the progress inside the StylePicker.
-The style list can be filtered by a specific RealTracks/RealDrums/MIDI SuperTracks or RealTracks/MIDI SuperTracks in a certain number range.
-You can filter the style list by a specific Xtra Styles PAK.
-The dialog to select an Xtra Styles PAK has a button to take you to the PG Music website that shows information about Xtra Styles PAKs.
-The StylePicker can list all styles (including N/A styles) in the default display.
-The Set number display is improved, including sort by type and Xtra styles.

StyleMaker Improvements:

-The new MIDI velocity offset allows you to make styles with altered loudness for MIDI tracks.
-Styles can be saved with information like a memo, examples, genres, and more, which will be displayed in the StylePicker.
-You can import information from another style. This is useful when you are making a similar style.
-A style can have a huge number of RealTracks (up to 70!) because the StyleMaker now supports RealTracks multi/medley feature, which allows a single track to have up to 10 simultaneous playing of RealTracks.

Song Titles Browser Enhancement

-We’ve added 300 more song titles including requests from users, so there are now over 10,600 titles.
-The chord density filter is available, and it’s also displayed in the memo.
-The chord complexity filter is available.
