I decided to write a liturgical/worship piece..but didn't have an idea for the lyric. One day, I came across words that, while reading, realize fit EXACTLY into my piece's melody line. So it's a collaboration. But the lyricist is Isaac Watts, who wrote the words in the early 1700's. They have been used for other hymns, but I like mine! It is so cool to have 'worked' with a master!

[Link no longer valid]

Rejoice, you righteous, in the Lord,
This work belongs to you;
Sing of his name, his ways, his word,
How holy, just, and true!

His mercy and his righteousness
Let heav'n and earth proclaim;
His works of nature and of grace
Reveal his wondrous name.

=================

STYLE = C_WLZMED Country Waltz
Used some of the Midi sounds in this style, then added
RT854 12-String Acoustic
RT827 Acoustic Strumming Guitar
RD's Country Waltz Brushes
Midi: Church Organ, Choir Sounds, Trumpet, Brass

Really nice work Tano smile Right off the bat, this has to be one of the music unique approaches to a worship song I've ever heard. Really nice backing tracks, and some really catchy harmonies to pull the whole thing along. Your vocal delivery is top notch here too.

Great job on this one - thanks for sharing!

Interesting. Unique.

The rhythm of the organ combined with the drums give it a "different drive". Makes it kind of "catchy"...

The melody fits the theme and its interesting to hear drums on a hymn.
An original piece - I enjoyed listening.

Yes, that rhythmic groove catches the ear!! Melody works well with this lyric. You win the forum prize for most unique collab! I'm sure your co-writer would be flattered! Take care. Greg

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

Hello, Tom

It is a very easy-to-remember melody.
But the accompaniment is very unique as your usual works.
I agree with floyd.
The rhythm of the organ combined with the drums give it a "different drive". Makes it kind of "catchy"...
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

Loved that catchy, quirky 3/4 rendition! As has been mentioned several times, the unusual drum-organ combo is a real nice fit. Very nice work! Wishing you the very best.

Band-in-a-Box® - What People Are Saying...

Wow, check out the latest feedback from Band-in-a-Box® users!

"I have one song I've been torturing over to get the sound right for quite some time and I merely keyed in the chords and what BB generated is awesome. Just what I hoped that song would sound like. What had taken me months to get right (and couldn't), the program could do in about an hour - AMAZING!"

"Great Ear Training Exercises! And I love that that you can set the tempo to whatever you choose. It's great for learning a tune!"

"A very good and easy to use musical program!"

"It's amazingly easy to use! Write a song? No problem! Add background sound track to a video? No problem! Put notes on a staff and have BB make up a chord progression and tell what key you are in? No problem! Start with a chord progression and have BB make a melody line? No problem!"

"Still the best practice tool I have found, great for running lines, improvising over and really helpful for working on song writing ideas as well! Good for beginners, and the more musical skill and knowledge you have the more you will get out of the software."

"I create demo songs with Band-in-a-Box, it helps me to get my ideas across to my engineer!"

"Been using Band-in-a-Box for years. Outstanding product from a great company!"

"It's like buying a Musical History Jukebox. It comes with probably 3000 styles and is like hiring session musicians to play rhythm with you, they even have soloists! It introduces you to so many types of rhythms that you other wise would know nothing about. "

"Paul McCartney said you gotta have a great band behind you. Well, Band-in-a-Box is my band."

"It's as easy as typing in the chords, choosing your style, instruments, etc., and off you go! Learning the tune? You can slow it down while you work on it then speed it up. My favorite analogy is a good chess program, which will play at your speed and level and is eternally patient!"

"I love my Band in a box, it does so much! Besides all the RealTracks and song ideas, it's a great tool to stay sharp with your licks. Social distancing got you down? Can't jam with friends? Pick out any song and go to the mixer button, there you can mute any instrument that's playing so you can jump right in and play along!"

"I love it. I'm a drummer, and Band-in-a-Box really keeps me on my toes!"

"The DAW plugin is really great. Trust me on this. I use it with Studio One.

"This is how I've been able to gig solo for the past 20 years. Band-in-a-Box is the great equalizer for us none rhythm players."

"Wouldn't want to be without it! One of the best things I bought in my life. Simple as that."

"As a songwriter I really love to work with Band-in-a-Box. The only limitation is your own creativity."

"I've used Band-in-a-Box for 25 years and thanks to this program and the advice of PG Music staff I've written over 100 songs. It's great software and amazing help to me as a musician. CONGRATS!!!"

Thank you for all the amazing feedback!
