Just finished another new one, called All I Know. All the instruments are Realtracks/Realdrums, with some strings added. All the vocals are me. I hope you enjoy it!

All I Know

Here are the lyrics...

All I Know
Words and Music copyright Stephen W. Young

Standing there in the middle of my heart
The vision of a dream come true
Like a pretty picture, or an old post card
Reminders of happy times with you

All I know is that the sun shines brighter when you're next to me
I know the grass is greener right here our my own back yard
I know that love is more than a dream, it's reality
All I know is we were meant to be
And all I know is good enough for me

I try to think of ways to let you know
Just how I feel when you're around
I can't seem to find the words to show
Beyond what I can comprehend

All I know is that the sun shines brighter when you're next to me
I know the grass is greener right here our my own back yard
I know that love is more than a dream, it's reality
All I know is we were meant to be
And all I know is good enough for me

Steve,

Wonderful through and through (as always). Beautifully written song - lyric and melody.
Great vocal and harmony (as always). Your use/choice of RealTracks is ALWAYS so nicely done. The low-volume accordion in the background is a brilliant idea (that sounded like something Noel would say, didn't it!). And the tasteful mix of guitars and mandolin is... well,... tasteful!!!

And like Josie said... that intro is sweet.

The whole track has such a wonderful flow.

Well I absolutely did enjoy it.
I agree with everyone else that this is top notch stuff! Excellent in every aspect.
For some reason every time it goes to the chorus... I just wanna smile.
Great job Steve!

Hey Steve,

If you could look through my monitor right as this moment, you'd see me sitting here with an incredibly impressed look on my face. This is an outstanding song: lyrics, melody, arrangement, production and mix. That first line of the chorus is dynamite. It really packs an amazing punch.

In my opinion, this is songwriting at its absolute best.

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.
