Latest song from Chris Spruit and myself, something a little different than we normally do:

Lift me up

The band:

Style used: cookin.sty

Guitar: Fender Tele

LIFT ME UP (by Chris Spruit)

Monday is not kind
and I get up in a haze
Much too late to get things straight
what shall I wear
running up and downstairs
Oh come on, what is wrong with my hair

But You lift me up my darling
you lift me up
you lift me up my darling
like the sweet black coffee in my morning cup

Won’t catch the bus,
oh what a mess, what a fuss
The world is in such a bad state
America has got a monkey
typing twitter to hell
my ear is ringing a bell

But You lift me up my darling
you lift me up
you lift me up my darling
like the sweet black coffee in my morning cup

Morning is not kind
and I woke up in a maze
tell me please, so where are the keys
The car broke down
I've got no shoes on my feet
look at this, I'm down on the street

But You lift me up my darling
you lift me up
you lift me up my darling
like the sweet black coffee in my morning cup

sweet sugar
sweet sweet sugar
lift me up
like the sweet black coffee in my morning cup

Song is also up on soundcloud: https://soundcloud.com/blue-attitude/lift-me-up-featuring-chris-spruit

Dave & Chris,

Cool song. Catchy! - especially the chorus.

Nice work on the tracks. Good opening. The guitar work is nice - tasty solos...
The organ sounds great - stands out nicely without getting in the way.
The drum touches are nice.

Well sung. Nice harmonies.

Well done all 'round. Several listens.

Dave and Chris,

A very nice and clean blues/jazz rock song. Very nice vocals and that organ does wonders.

Thanks, Scott! Yeah, I just love the tele. Only had it a few months, I've always been mostly a strat guy. Makes me wish I bought one 20 years ago! I'm playing through the S-Gear amp simulator BTW.

Dave & Chris,
Enjoying a few listens - a very upbeat way to get a grey day going.
I liked the topical humour in the lyrics and the way the guitar cuts through the backing.
All good!

Dave and Chris,

This is really happy and feelgood from the first bar onwards. I loved it. The backing is mixed to perfection and Chris's singing is an excellent fit.

You've both done a great job creating this. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Regards,
Noel

Top notch all around on this. The vocals are really nice and set just right in the mix. Good lyrics and excellent tone and playing on the tele....

Great collaboration. Hope to hear more from you soon.

Thanks, Rob!
Yes, can't beat having a B3 in the mix. I've used one in most of our songs, such a great sound.

Most cool! Love the way the Booker T sounding intro morphed into the fusion feel Bob mentioned.

The vocals, guitar and the entire groove are hittin' the note!

This is one of the more inventive and unique sounding posts we've heard in a long time.

You might want to explore more down this road!

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.
