Technical Stuff:
Yes I Do.MGU
BLANK2s.STY
Added RealTrack: 522:Guitar, Acoustic, Fingerpicking Ev 120

I conceived the song to be duet, but my singing partner never showed
so I changed some "Is & Mes" and rewrote it for a solo performance.
Hope you enjoy it.

Lyrics
Yes I Do © Jim Hughes

Do I love you Yes I do
I really love you Yes I do
There's never been a day I don't count the ways
That I love you
Do I need you Yes I do
I really need you Yes I do
There's never been a day I don't count the ways
That I love you
When I look at you hon
I am sure I found the one
And when you look at me
I know you're all I'll ever need
Do I want you Yes I do
I really want you Yes I do
There's never been a day I don't count the ways
That I love you


Jim

Jim,

A really nice "simple love song".

Well sung, well mixed.

Sounds like something The Everly Brothers might have done.

Nice.

Cool tune. I got an Everly Bros vibe on the is song. Super vocal song and backtrack. would have been nice to hear your singing partner as well on the song.

Hello Jim,

that's exactly what we (or should I say: our darlings?) need once in a while: a lovely and soulful love song. very nice melody, well-arranged and as allways sung with a lot of feeling. Enjoyed it a lot.

A sweet simple love song to be sung to that special person. Very heartfelt. Love the vocals, you can tell it's from the heart. Good song.

Hello, Jim...

The lyrics of your song, "Yes, I Do", are as simple and as lovingly expressive as a lullaby. Your Real Style and additional RealTrack choices create a sound that is as gentle as a baby's heartbeart, that is open and honest in feeling, and as warm as a hug. This is all sweetness, all of it, the kind of thing you would sing straight into someone's bashful, but loving face.

I think this is the first song I'd heard from you. I hope it won't be the last.

Sincerely,

LOREN

Thanks, Scott... The "singing partner" may have gotten cold feet when she heard my recording booth was a shower wink.

Really well done! Love your vocal performance on this. Really strong, and a lot of sincerity behind it. The hook is nicely catchy too, and that groove had my foot tapping right away. Someone else mentioned a feeling akin to the Everly Brothers, and I actually think that's a decent comparison.

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

The Band-in-a-Box® Flash Drive Backup Option

Today (April 5) is National Flash Drive Day!

Did you know... not only can you download your Band-in-a-Box® Pro, MegaPAK, or PlusPAK purchase - you can also choose to add a flash drive backup copy with the installation files for only $15? It even comes with a Band-in-a-Box® keychain!

For the larger Band-in-a-Box® packages (UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, Audiophile Edition), the hard drive backup copy is available for only $25. This will include a preinstalled and ready to use program, along with your installation files.

Backup copies are offered during the checkout process on our website.

Already purchased your e-delivery version, and now you wish you had a backup copy? It's not too late! If your purchase was for the current version of Band-in-a-Box®, you can still reach out to our team directly to place your backup copy order!

Note: the Band-in-a-Box® keychain is only included with flash drive backup copies, and cannot be purchased separately.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first? If your flash drive (or other USB plug) doesn't have a symbol to indicate which way is up, look for the side with a seam on the metal connector (it only has a line across one side) - that's the side that either faces down or to the left, depending on your port placement.

Band-in-a-Box® 2024 Review: 4.75 out of 5 Stars!

If you're looking for a in-depth review of the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows version, you'll definitely find it with Sound-Guy's latest review, Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows Review: Incredible new capabilities to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs.

A few excerpts:
"The Tracks view is possibly the single most powerful addition in 2024 and opens up a new way to edit and generate accompaniments. Combined with the new MultiPicker Library Window, it makes BIAB nearly perfect as an 'intelligent' composer/arranger program."

"MIDI SuperTracks partial generation showing six variations – each time the section is generated it can be instantly auditioned, re-generated or backed out to a previous generation – and you can do this with any track type. This is MAJOR! This takes musical experimentation and honing an arrangement to a new level, and faster than ever."

"Band in a Box continues to be an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs, as well as an extensive educational resource. It is huge, with hundreds of functions, more than any one person is likely to ever use. Yet, so is any DAW that I have used. BIAB can do some things that no DAW does, and this year BIAB has more DAW-like functions than ever."

Convenient Ways to Listen to Band-in-a-Box® Songs Created by Program Users!
