Hi all. This song was written for songtradr. They wanted a song that mentioned spring flowers and blooms. I thought I would contrast spring with death and renewal.I also wanted to evoke emotion. In the end I wasn't successful. This is a step away from my normal write. All comments and suggestions welcome. Rob

What Love Brings



Daddy bought some roses in the spring of 65 and laid them at the head of Mamma's grave.

She'd been fighting off the cancer on a Saturday she died.
It was a sorry thing to end that way.

I feel the spring time breezes as they warmed the bitter air.
Apple blossoms float around and seem so unaware.

Rays of light creep through the trees and warmed my ailing heart.
Ive been hoping for the spring and what love brings.

I really like the songs made with this style, especially the acoustic guitar #2914 fits nicely your peaceful melodic ballad. Great performance and lyrics, I can feel the spring time breeze here also smile

Rob,

This is nice. Haven't heard you do anything like this before.

A good write. Really nice arrangement - works well for the song and its subject matter. Good mix.

Your vocal is really nice - emotional.

Well done.

Most different indeed but the contrast, as you mentioned, is really well done. There is assuredly a "heavy" feel to it but the hints of renewal are most effective.

Very creative and, as always, well performed.

Rob,
I guess you meant you weren`t successful with Songtradr- you certainly were in evoking emotion...there`s sadness in both lyrics and your vocal.
I enjoyed this reflective side of your music.
Well done on the production too.

Robert

Good one Rob.

Love the lyrics and your vocal suits perfectly.
A touch of early Johnny Cash in this one.
Thumbs up from here.

Cheers.

Wow - what a powerful tune smile Your vocal delivery and the lyrics are flawlessly executed here. It is incredibly sad, but I love how raw and emotional it is. The tune almost has a dream-like quality to it as well, I found.

Great work on this - thanks so much for sharing!

Nice one Rob. It reminds me a little of Gordon Lightfoot. Excellent writing and vocal. I enjoyed my listen, Tom

Nice. I enjoy all your work, but I think you should do some more of this style. It does suit you well. I agree with Tom, there is a little Gordon Lightfoot in this, and that's a good thing. I like this one.

Hello, Rob

A beautiful melody reminiscent of Simon and Garfunkel's "Feelin' Gloovy" is wonderful.
Unlike usual rock and roll style, your fork style song is also very nice.
Your vocal is really comfortable us usual.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

Different than what I'm used to hearing from you, but very good.

I see both Tom and Steve mentioned Gordon Lightfoot, I'm hearing a bit of that too, both in the write and the vocal.

Nice arrangement too and the mix sounds good.

Good song, enjoyed the listen!

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows was released in December 2018, and included many new features and enhancements - like the enhancements we made to our Notation window!

These include:
-Pressing the space bar plays the song from the current location.
-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.
-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.
-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 it.
-In the Notation Windows Options dialog, the clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
-The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
-You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
-A new track type (Drums) is available for the Melody and Soloist tracks.
-Holding down the Ctrl key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
-There's a keystroke entry 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.
-A new button in the Print Options dialog lets you quickly print a "chords only" fake sheet. You can also access this from the right-click menu on the Chord Sheet.
-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.


There's detailed information on our 2019 notation enhancements here: Band-in-a-Box® 2019 New Feature - Notation Enhancements

Jump to the Notation topic in our Band-in-a-Box® 2019 new features video.

Review details and download here

Summary of changes for build 315 (Nov 15, 2019):

Fixed: Exporting MusicXML files was not working.
Fixed: When using "Auto-Hand split Piano track" feature, exported MIDI files contain wrong note durations on the Piano track.
Fixed: Note-based lyrics were not included when exporting MIDI files.
Fixed: User should be prompted to save their song when exiting, if they had added or removed plugins.
Fixed: The Record Audio dialog always says “Track type is Stereo” even if the track type is mono.
Fixed: The [Audio Options…] button in the Record Audio dialog was launching the Audio Devices dialog instead of the Audio Settings dialog.
Fixed: Loops dialog title bar displays wrong track name.
Fixed: Large patch map files are not completely loaded (were limited to 1985 patches).
Fixed: Notation context menu > Edit Section Text… did not do anything.
Fixed: Notation context menu > Insert Section Text… did not do anything.

My Favorite Things - Nudge Chords in Band-in-a-Box®

Love this time saving feature.

Ever fill in the chordsheet fully or for part of song, and then discover you want to add or take away an extra beat or more somewhere in the chordsheet.

Nudge chords (melody) from the Edit Menu is your friend here, the dialog will give you all the options either to remove or add beats where its needed.

Love it.
