A little shanty about the Gloucester fishermen. All RT's.

The Fisherman's Daughter

©2013 Robert Randall Burke


Heave-ho
Mind how you go
If you want to make it to Gloucester
Hold fast
Pull with your last
And you'll marry the fisherman's daughter.

The summer was long way out on the Banks
We've come about, heading for home
Safe ashore, he'll wander no more
For he'll marry the fisherman's daughter.

The lighthouse will welcome us home from the sea
The wives will be waitin' ashore
This will be the last trip for thee
For you'll marry the fisherman's daughter.

Trust in God
And a hold full of cod
The Banks never seen such a slaughter
With brass in our pockets
And a girl on each arm
But he'll marry the fisherman's daughter.


The summer was long way out on the Banks
We've come about, heading for home
Safe ashore, he'll wander no more
For he'll marry the fisherman's daughter.

Mr. Robert Randall Burke,

You step it up a bit more each time.

One of the best mixes I've heard here. Ever. The writing is gorgeous. "We've come about" by itself would make this well written. The vocal is beautiful - one leg and a quilt, I imagine.

What drum style is that? All RTs? you had to have played the opening lead instrument (what is it?). And where do the strings come from? I can't find the seagull track...

Not sure it gets any better than this.

Thanks for the kind remarks Floyd. Here are the RT's (I didn't use the fiddle):


Key=C , Tempo 135, Length (m:s)=2:57
No intro. 130 bar chorus, from bar 1 to bar 130. Repeat x1 chorus
No Melody
No Soloist track.
Song is saved with Volume, Pan, Reverb, Chorus, Bank0,
Style is _POPWLZ2.STY (Pop Waltz w/ Piano and Fiddle)

RealTracks in style: ~1178:Bass, Electric, PopWaltz Ev 120
RealTracks in style: ~1188:Piano, Acoustic, Rhythm PopWaltz Ev 120
RealTracks in style: ~1182:Guitar, Acoustic, Strumming PopWaltz Ev 120
RealTracks in style: ~1179:Fiddle, Background PopWaltz Ev 120
RealDrums in style: PopRockWaltzEv,SideStickHat,Ride: a: Sidestick. HiHat b: PopRockWaltzEv,SideStickHat,Ride


The lead instrument in the beginning is a harp from Garritan, the strings were Garritan as well.


It's not easy singing while standing on one leg with a quilt over one's head.


Regards,

Bob

Hi Robert,

tune and lyrics are like a forgotten folksong.
They transport a special mood.
And your good voice and the interesting mix
make it a very enjoyable listen.

Aye and adding another +1.

(Plus an extra aye for balancing on the one leg with the quilt over his head. )

They said it all. I can only be redundant. It works melodically, lyrically, RealTrack choice and mix wise. It's all there and then some. Well done....very well done!!

Great job!! Your voice reminds me so much of Gordon Lightfoot. And, this song is right up there with his "The Wreck Of The Edmund Fitzgerald". Loved it.

Hi Bob,

I'm late to catch up with your latest song! I'm so glad I didn't miss it. It's truly excellent. There's a clarity to the production on this one that really has the stamp of "mega-professional". I really enjoyed listening to it. The natural minor mode always appeals to me.

All the best,
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.
