2Angels

A song I wrote years ago which I though needed a cello. A different slant on love after life.

I thought I saw a white dove flying over my head
Could have been an Angel but I wasn’t even dead

But then I saw an Angel standing by my side
She turned around and smiled at me just before I died

And I see that Angel smiling as I finish off my song
One day I mean to ask her just where I got it wrong.

Instrumental………..

And if you see a white dove standing by your side
Just let him take your hand love, let him be your guide

And we will fly together for ever and a day
Two very special Angels with nothing in our way

And we will fly together for ever and a day
Two very special Angels with nothing in our way


Realtracks I added are:

RT1121 Bass, Acoustic, CountryWaltz
RT1814 Guitar, Acoustic, Fingerpicking CelticAir Ev
RealGuitar 362 Guitar, Acoustic, Strumming
RT1856_Cello, with multriffs

A nice song, Chris.

The cello works well for it.

You should be able to delete that other thread yourself since there have been no comments on it. There should be a Delete button (you may have to choose Edit first).

Shades of Roger Whittacker/Ralph McTell/Rod McKuen/Pacabell's Canon.
Odd that this leans to the right - both cello & voice being dominant sounds and both tilted right.
Nice work apart from the lean - hope it's not a coded political statement!

Thanks for the comments Ray. I'll have to look at the lean to the right, cause if anything I tend to lean to the left. ( An uncoded political statement grin )

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

Good song! A bit more to the left is always nice wink

There was a few words I missed here and there - probably because English is not my native language. For the same reason I like when people post the lyrics.

Keep up the good work!
Will

Nicely done smile Very, very pretty and easy on the ears. It flows gorgeously, and the cello was an amazing touch. I thoroughly enjoyed your vocals as well on this.

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

@ Janice and Bud,
Thank you for the nice feedbck, I appreciate it.

It was played at my brother in law's funeral a couple of years ago. He had cared for my sister during her terminal cancer, and passed away just three weeks after my sister died. I sent the song to my niece to try and comfort her a little and she used it at his funeral which seemed to make sense. So there were two more special angels.

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!
