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!

Upgrading to Band-in-a-Box® 2020 is Easy!

Did you know... anyone who has owned a previous version of Band-in-a-Box® is entitle to upgrade pricing - you do not need to have your old version installed!

Maybe you used to own the Windows version, but you now have a Mac... that's not a problem either!
(or if you owned the Mac version, and now you have a Windows computer)

In both cases, you would purchase from the "Upgrade from 2018 or earlier or crossgrade" row here for a new Mac version, or here if you want the newest Windows version. Just need to upgrade your 2019 version? Use the "Upgrade from 2019/2020" row.

When you purchase your upgrade from either of these rows, you will receive a complete installation - just follow the steps of the setup, and your Band-in-a-Box® will be ready to use!

PG Music Inc. shopping cart accounts were not required to purchase from our website prior to October 29, 2014. With that in mind, you may have to create an account in order to upgrade - that's OK! You'll still be entitled to upgrade pricing.
