Hello All

Well, suddenly things get real. My music partner and wonderful guitarist, Lebz, father has passed as a result of Covid-19. I am so devasted for him.

Liz Petty wrote these lyrics and also, this time gave me the music. Just a simple backing of drums, bass and piano. No harmonies. Just one lead vocal.

Liz sent me the lovely photographs which are just perfect for the song.

Comments are welcome:




Lyrics
(C) (C/B) (Am) (C/G) (F) (G)
may we (C) know (C/B) (Am) closeness (C/G) with (F) distance
and (G) kindness with our (C) love
may we (C) know (C/B) (Am) comfort (C/G) with (F) quiet
and (G) know when faith is (C) enough

(C) may we know (C/B) (Am) (C/G) may we (G) find
may we (F) share humanli(C)ty
may we (F) grow (C) love may we (G) grow (C) love

may we (C) find (C/B) (Am) courage (C/G) for (F) questions
and (G) answers for (C) strength
may we (C) find (C/B) (Am) hunger (C/G) for (F) beauty
and (G) truth joy hope and (C) grace

(C) may we know (C/B) (Am) (C/G) may we (G) find
may we (F) share humanli(C)ty
may we (F) grow (C) love may we (G) grow (C) love

may we (C) share (C/B) (Am) wonders (C/G) of (F) silence
and (G) power of our (C) dreams
may we (C) share (C/B) (Am) sweetness (C/G) of (F) passion
and (G) share in the prayers of (C) peace

(C) may we know (C/B) (Am) (C/G) may we (G) find
may we (F) share humanli(C)ty
may we (F) grow (C) love may we (G) grow (C) love
may we (F) grow (C) love may we (G) grow (C) love
may we (F) grow (C) love may we (G) grow (C) love

So sorry, Joanne, Lebz and all. This is so very sad. Love the lyrics with all the contrast. "may we know closeness wit distance" Such beautiful words throughout.

Beautiful song and tribute.
My condolences to those who will miss him.

Sadly, many will following.

Thanks for sharing.


I also need to give you thanks for helping me discover BIAB.
I had no idea what it was or how to use it.
I watched one of your vids and subsequently put it on my Xmas wish list last December.

Absolutely a beautiful tribute to a loved one that was sung by a fantastic singer. I could hear your pain in this song.

Unfortunately her father is one of many that will pass this year. Our condolences to all whom have lost a loved one.

Pretty song Joanne! I have been lucky enough to not know any victims of this terrible pandemic, but my time will probably come. It is tragic. Thanks for sharing this sweet song!! Take care. Greg

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!
