Hi all

A new song in tribute to my newborn grandson. Hello There

Lyrics from the web.

A mix of RT. I have added some strings, choir and solo piano and the vocal

Hope you like it. ANY comments are welcome.

Jan.

Jan, first and foremost congratulations on your new grandson.

Second what a great song! Loved the progression and the lyrics. The backing tracks were spot on!

You have a very good voice. But to nit-pick there is something about the vocals here. It may be the effects, don’t know. Maybe pitch correction? Either way you really don’t need that much IMHO. But they only slightly detract from an outstanding song.

Two thumbs up.

Congratulations, Grandpa.
Nice song.
What do you mean with "lyrics from the web"?

Nice song, lovely vocals.

You've obviously got a good voice, so why not try some harmony work? I could imagine it coming into, say the last verse, to give it an extra lift at the end. Just an idea, but still a good track anyway.

ROG.

Thank you very much for taking your time to listen and your kind words.
Mario you' r right - I'm never satisfied with my vocal, so I guess I tend to tweak too much!
ROG it may be a good suggestion, I'll give it a try.
John, thanks, yes it has been a while

What a wonderful welcome to the world. Congrats on the newest edition to the family!

Pretty song Jan. Whatever's causing the TPain effect is a bit distracting - otherwise, like it lots.

Hi Jan,

A wonderful song - well written, arranged with skill and mixed superbly. I thought it was a very heartfelt tribute to your grandson.

All the best,
Noel

P.S. After listening to the song, I went back to check that you were actually from Denmark! I thought I must have misread that

Very moving, nicely done.... reminds me of a similar song I wrote, "Hello, Little Friend."

I like your voice quite a lot. And if it's overproduced, it's not by much. I hadn't listened to T-Pain, so I did, and whoa... the Danes do it much better.

Jan,

Congrats on the new grandson!

Also very good song, I really enjoyed it. Just FYI of late I have been doing quite a few songs welcoming in new family additions, including a couple of our own. With this said I would be very proud to have come up with what you have here.

Now start spoiling that little rascal!

Later,

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.
