My daughter is getting married in September, and while we were discussing what song we will dance to, she asked me if I would write one for us.

She hasn't heard this as she wants to hear it for the first time when we dance.

All the instruments are Band in a Box, I just love this program, although it does make me lazy sometimes

Fitzy,

Beautiful song. Great vocal and harmony, and excellent tracks and mix. Super well done. Your daughter will have a lifetime memory with this.

You had better stock up on the tissues. There is gonna be a LOT of crying...

Wonderful.

Hi Fitzy
Well done! A Great song to mark the special day.
I'm sure that she will wet your shirt with tears!.
One Question - on the day, who will sing the song?
Congratulations
Ian

Had me from the 1st verse. My prediction is that when the sax solo begings you will look into each other's eyes and ball like two babies. In fact I'll be willing to put money on this one!

Get ready for the waterworks!

Later,

Really beautiful! I have 2 daughters, and both of them got married within 1 year, so I know what you are about to go through.

As has been said, good job with the vocals, the harmonies, the whole song. I know she will love it! And I know there will be tears!

Huge +1 to what's already been said. This is absolutely beautiful. She's going to love it and so is everyone else. I'm going to buy stock in kleenex now.

Great work.

Very nice. Your daughter will dance to a song her Dad wrote just for her - how cool is that?


Regards,

Bob

Thank you all for your kind words, praise from fellow musicians is high praise indeed. I intended to carry a clean handkerchief to give my daughter, but after reading these replies I think AT LEAST two will be in order!

Later,




I'm with Danny on this one. Does anyone want to bet us?

This is one fantastic tribute to your daughter as well as a very special song that she will cherish for the rest of her life. You should be very proud of this one!

Two thumbs up.

Hi Fitz,

What a beautiful, wonderful, special song. Everything about it is exceptionally well done - writing, arranging, singing, mixing. As Floyd said above "Your daughter will have a lifetime memory with this."

My best wishes to your all,
Noel

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.
