Since my last post last year I had lost interest in music due to a re-emergence of the worst time of my life from 20 years ago, I sometimes lurk and saw Noel's lyrics but thought that I could never write a song to those.
I occasionally messed with BIAB trying to discover tricks I didn't know and playing with the RTs that I have never used and came across 2708 Autoharp. And so emerged 32 bars of Em which needed lyrics and more chords!
THEN the gibsonator suddenly came back to life, took control and pointed to Noel's lyrics.The analogy of a year being my life arose in my mind. 20 years ago I was 48 ...I was in the Autumn of my life-ish!!! Aah hah Autumn's blade ..... BRILLIANT!!

Noel, you, without knowing, put my thoughts into words in a way that I could never have done. Thank you
A few more chords turned up and then Brent put those thoughts into notes.
This has been ready to post for quite a few weeks but circumstances out of my control stopped me. Here it is at last.

Deciduous love

Lost and lonely autumn leaves are my only friends tonight
We're tumbling headlong down a road going nowhere
Forgetting once we had we had a happy life
now all alone, where cold winds blow
Don't we deserve a home?

Deciduous love
Deciduous love
Lives for summer sun
Deciduous love
Deciduous love
Deciduous love Leaves when summer is done

I remember back in springtime
The taste of youth was good
Then summer shone and love grew strong I was invincible and self-assured
as days got longer and seasons changed
blue turned grey and
then came autumn's blade

Deciduous love
Deciduous love
Lives for summer sun
Deciduous love
Deciduous love
Deciduous love Leaves when summer is done

Maybe one day
I'm hoping one day
that Summer will never ever go away
Deciduous love lives for summer sun
Deciduous love leaves, leaves when summer is done
Always needing that summer sun

Alyn,

It's fantastic to see you in the forum again!!!!

Love the opening. Very mystical and haunting and spooky. When that bass comes in... the feeling is awesome and then Brent arrives a bit later and ices what is truly a spectacular cake.

This is such an incredibly mind-boggling good production. Everything sits s-o-o-o-o-o well together. The arrangement and the mix are PERFECT for your narrative and the use of effects such as delay and reverb is very, very effective. I found this a magical musical journey in the best possible way. When I look at your list of Realtracks. I'm amazed at how you've used them. Your trademark creativity shines brilliantly everywhere.



All the best,
Noel

P.S. I've listened to this a few times now and I'm just as mesmerised by what you've done as I was the first time I heard it. I'm so glad you posted this.

What a unique rendition! I can't believe how different this is to the last version I heard. The spoken word actually works really well here. Loving the backing tracks too. It has an otherworldly feeling to it.

Nice work and thanks for sharing smile

Alyn,

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!

Welcome Back! Missed ya!

This is VERY cool. Love the spacey backtracks. The narrative is terrific. Paced perfectly - will not let go of the ear...

That ending guitar solo is Exquisite! Like you got someone to record it JUST for this piece. Made me look back a your list to see what it was! - That is always a good sign.

You are always good at combining a BUNCH of RealTracks and making them sound right, light, sparse. This is one of your best in that regard. A Superb production. An Excellent mix!

Hope you will stick around.

Nice to hear from you Alyn. Sensational return, this is a fantastic rendition of the lyrics. Excellent use of realtracks, all those instruments blending into a pleasing chaos, interestingly you have combine even and swing instruments. I thought I heard something played backwards and then I noticed you have really reversed a track, very clever smile

Your voice has the right autumn tone and the solo guitar rises from the ground full of leaves. Gives nice Leonard Cohen and Tom Waits vibes.

Janne

Alyn, you've been greatly missed my old pal.
The forum has been a poorer place without your thought-provoking and imaginative style.

Loved this one. I need to listen to stuff like this to jolt me out of the rut
I keep drifting into. Fabulous!

Please stick around and let's have some more Gibson-esque songs.

Cheers,
ROG.

Interesting take on this song. I hadn't expected a "spoken word" tune, but I loved it. Loved how the narrative led into the tasty guitar solo. Love the drums and really all the backing tracks.

Very nice job.

THANKS for the lovely review Noel, oh and thanks for those lyrics. When the gibsonator spluttered into life they fitted, with a little adjustment, absolutely perfectly!

It took a while to get the feel I wanted and I am glad it worked for you.

thank you

Alyn

That autoharp started that vibe and completed it with the ending and the harmonics fading.

Thanks for listening and commenting

Missed you to floyd blush whistle grin
Yeh that solo. My version on my Strat was rubbish now resigned to the bin....took a while to find it but then BAM..... what can I say.
It was a first generation, with a bit of adjustment as Brent didn't like my diminished bar towards the end.

Thanks for the wonderful review.
I hope I stay also but have to try to keep my fan clean after it was hit by all that mess in Feb last year.

Thanks dear Sir,

Alyn

Alyn,

This works so well - it gave me chills, so I can tell the lyrics got to you.
I love the " pleasing chaos" of the arrangement, as Janne said. Perfect ending.
Your Gibsonator songs have been missed here.

Robert

Alyn, that was GREAT!! And what a wonderful take on Noel's lyrics! It seemed that they were written for your version. It was mesmerizing to say the least! By the way, I often wondered about you. You were missed around this forum! Thanks, Torrey

Band-in-a-Box® - Boxing Clever - Sound on Sound #TBT

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® is more than 30 years old? I stumbled across this 1990 magazine article explaining the relatively new program, and think it's an enjoyable read for any Band-in-a-Box user - it really shows that we are always listening to user feedback when developing our program!

Read the article: Boxing Clever: Band-In-A-Box Software

A few of my favorite statements:

"The intention of PG Music's Band-In-A-Box package is to couple that speed and convenience with the improved flexibility of the personal computer. Versions are available for the Atari ST, Mac, and PC compatibles. Have the programmers succeeded? And can they rid themselves of the stigma of the auto-accompaniment section? Given the above state of affairs, the first hurdle that the program has to overcome is one of acceptance and, frankly, a name like 'Band-In-A-Box' is a bad start."

(I think our name was a great start!)

"The final results are, to say the least, impressive. Band-In-A-Box achieves something that most hardwired auto-accompaniment sections have never been able to do - inject a degree of feel into the music. It really does sound more human than so many of the computer generated pieces I've heard."

"...I'm quite convinced that PG Music will have a winner on their hands. This is one piece of software that you can get more out of than you put in."
