have been working on this bossa tune:
https://soundcloud.com/tanomusic/hesitation

Style = _B140GTB
Added RD Bossa Brushes Per for Conga
Added RD E Guitar Solo
Some added accent notes.



"Hesitation"

See her on the sidewalk
Suddenly our eyes lock
How I'd love to meet her
But once again I let her go
Couldn't get my nerve up
Couldn't even tell her "Hello".

Talkin' in my tea cup
Wishing I had spoke up
Hoping that she'd seen me
Dreaming of a life to be
Heading down the sidewalk
Walking off alone to somewhere.

It seems I've been
Watching from a distance
Pondering existence
Won'dring if I'll catch my dream;
No more contemplation
End the hesitation
And catch the dream..

Sitting in the office
Wishing I could hold her
Looking out the window
Hoping that I'd see her go
Starting down the sidewalk
Dreaming of her ultimate life with someone
Guess I better meet her
Tell her how our dreams can be one.

Tano,

That was fun! An enjoyable listen - smooth tracks. It would be interesting to hear who your musical influences are....

Really fun song. Quirky in the best possible way. The song and your performance has a lot of charm. The lyrics create a little movie in the mind. I've been that guy in real life. I enjoyed it very much.

Liked that a lot.
I'm glad you printed the lyrics. It is so fast (for me nearly artistic)
and so I didn't miss the funny contents.
Nice mix.
I would have wished it little bit more of your guitar.

Happy new year.

Ditto+ on the "Fun song" from above.

It was nice to be able to follow the lyrics thru-out the
song.

Very nice job on what sounds like was a difficult piece of work.

Thanks for sharing

It’s all been said. This is a fun song with a super mix.

Two thumbs up

PS – how can you sing so fast?

Nice work. I liked the lead instrument on the intro - it had a sort of 8 bit samba feel.

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Wow - very nice! You really have the voice for this kind of music. Kudos to you for pulling it off the way you did. Enjoyed all of it. And you kept it short, but interesting. Loved it!

Cheers,
Mike

Hi Tano,

Excellent! I loved the "sidewalk / eyes lock" rhyme - very creative. In fact, this whole work - writing, performance, arrangement, use of BIAB - is wonderfully creative. I'm going back for another listen now

Best regards,
Noel

#TBT The Band-in-a-Box® 2010 "Plug-in" Mode!

Did you know... the "Plug-in" mode was first launched with the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2010 for Windows!

With the 2010 "Plug-in" mode, Band-in-a-Box® opened as a small always-on-top window, and acted as a plug-in for your favorite DAW/sequencer, so that you could Drag-and-drop MIDI and audio (WAV) tracks from Band-in-a-Box to your favorite sequencer. You could work in your favorite sequencer, type a progression in Band-in-a-Box, and then simply drag the track from Band-in-a-Box to your sequencer’s track at the desired track and bar location.
