I wrote this on my laptop while in DI's hospital room last Sunday. It's all BIAB and Audacity. All I did was put it together on the laptop and finally have time to post it. From start to finish ... about 2 hours. It features acoustic guitar on the lead. I kept it simple - just four tracks. Thanks in advance ... Alan

Hi Alan,

Even if you made this tune within a few hours, I do think it is a fine piece of music. It is what I call "lounge"-music - a genre I like to listen to when relaxing with good friends.

There's a strange drop in the volume of the sound between 1:36 and 1:39 - is that an "artifact" from the new version of BiaB?

Thanks for sharing!
Will

That spot does sound as if the guitar turned away from the mic for a moment.
That occasional chord in the melody sounds weird.
Hope DI is doing better having some music being made along side would be nice.

Another nice tune, Alan...
Pretty good for only 2 hours work...
I had to back & listen a 2nd time to find the drop out they mentioned...
I didn't notice it the 1st time through.

Nice work Alan. This three minutes of sunshine is bound to cheer anyone up. I'm thinking it's just what the doctor ordered.
Cheers to you both,
Mike

Dear Alan,

I can assure you: This Sunday Samba is a treat on mondays, too. I said it before: I adore the way you compose and even morr your playing, which is simply outstanding on this one. Brilliant, just brilliant !!!!

All the best to you and Di who has hopefully recovered!

Stefan

Great work Alan! Very impressive you wrote this in such a short timespan. And simple really is better sometimes, because this certainly hits the spot. Not too over complicated, and really easy on the ears with a nice groove.

Well done - thanks so much for sharing smile

I was expecting Sammy Davis, Jr. to come in with the vocals. Great guitar work. This is a fun, uplifting song.

Hi Will ...

Thank you very much - glad you enjoyed it. That volume issue was an oversight on my part. I meant to correct it but just forgot to. Best to you ...

Hi Ray ...

Thanks for the listen. the volume drop was my forgetfulness to go back and fix it. Not sure which "weird" chord you're referring to. i do use unusual chord progressions at times but I think this one was pretty straight forward.

And many thanks for your well wishes for Di. We both appreciate that very much. Wishing you the very best ...

Alan

Thanks so much, Scott. The guitar work was actually a Real Track - wish it were me! At one time, I was a pretty good player. But the Focal Dystonia is robbing me of my ability to play. Oh well ... I had my 50 years of fun and made a very good living doing it!

Wishing you well ...

Alan

Hello My friend!

Well, it's good to know that it works on Mondays, also! It's an equal opportunity song - gives every day a chance!

Unfortunately, that was not on the guitar - it was a Real Track. AT one time, I was pretty good, though! Wishing you and Maha the very best ...

Alan

PS: Di says hello!

Get Inspired with the Band-in-a-Box® Title Generator!

There can be many triggers that could inspire you to write a song... but what if you're wanting to write a song, and are having trouble finding the inspiration you need?

Jump start your creativity using the Title Generator feature in Band-in-a-Box®.

I love this feature - it delivers some beautiful results!

To access this feature:

Mac: select Edit | Chords | Auto-Generate Song Title menu command (control+shift+S). The song title will appear in the Title window! Repeat the Auto-Generate Song Title command until the program comes up with a suitable title for your song. Band-in-a-Box® will keep generating new titles for as long as it takes to get the right one.

Windows: click on the "Generate Title" button within the main screen of the program and you can choose to "auto-generate" a song title which will appear right in the Title field of your song, or for a more varied selection choose to "generate multiple titles" and you'll be taken to the Title Generator window, which can generate a list of 50 song titles for you!

I've just done this, and won't bother list all 50 here - but the "top 10" I've chosen from my generated list are:
Eloquent Laugh
Statuesque Luck
Considering a Rainbow
Brief Fling, Acknowledged
Something for a Sandpiper
Happy Runaround
Cheatin' Skies
Then Came a Rose
The Mention of My Love
Eternal Raincheck

Give it a try!

The resource for this feature can also be edited, allowing you to customize the results.
(to do this, review the file TITL1.TXT within the BB Data folder.)
