I wrote this song maybe 5-6 years ago and sent it over to the Englishters! Rog and his crew worked it up as a Beach Boy kind of surf tune, which I loved. It never went up as the original rocker tune as it was written, so I revived it this week.

This is yet another "You dumped me and now I hate you" song. It was a reminder that you can't force a relationship to work, but that good things come to those who wait. I did not intend to quote the condensed meaning of Psalms 40:30, but I had heard that passage all my life, far before Heinz Ketchup and Guinness started using it as their slogan. And trust me, that girl reminded me that I should wait for good things....

Yeah, that wasn't the easiest thing to master because the track had compression and reverb
printed onto it when I got it, but as Eddie pointed out, the track was mostly recorded
several years ago, so not a lot we could do about that.

If anyone doesn't remember what WE did to Eddies song three years ago and is interested to hear it,
you can pick it up here -

Good Things Come

Many thanks to Eddie for letting us mess about with it.

Cheers, ROG.

Eddie.. I liked pretty much everything about this!! I thought the overall production is really solid, everything hung together really well. I specially liked the lyrics that you used, a lot of the rhyming sequences are very clever. My only suggestion— the solo guitar seemed a little too powerful for the style, and I would suggest substituting a flatter sound, but that’s just how I’m hearing it. Very enjoyable listen, thanks for posting!!

I had a listen to both versions. I liked them both, but liked the original version better. I think because the key is different and you are singing it higher?

But yeah, good song. Some very clever rhymes!

Thanks for sharing this with us Eddie! This definitely has attitude behind it. Also a good reminder that good things do come to those who wait (and work their butt off!) - Well done!

I know you aren't around - but you did a great job here Eddie smile Just got around to listening now, and you did really nice work here. The harmonies in the background added a wonderful element to it too, and the chorus is strong and just the right level of catchy. I also love how it picks up with the guitars.

You should be proud of this one - thanks for sharing!

I am starting to have such a hard time figuring out which are RT's and which are used performed tracks when they are put together so well like this. Nice job Eddie. Good rocker; and nice use of the backing vox.

Eddie and ROG,

I enjoyed the listen. I also had a listen to the previous version from 3 years ago. I liked both... they're really well put together.

You've definitely got a way with word, Eddie. I found your lyrics very engaging.

All the best,
Noel

Bumpity bump bump bump.

Yep, that's the way we roll! smile

I enjoyed the song, thanks to you and ROG!

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Nice tune Eddie. I got kind of a Randy Newman vibe off your vocal style and loved the guitar solo sound you used in the song as well. Great job!

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.
