Verse a g d a

Bridges for tides

Verse 1:
Watching the coming and going
of the beaches and the bays.
The seesaw, the reciprocation,
the undulation of the mountains and pines.

Chorus:
Between the high and low tides
it only takes a few miles.
Between the high and low tides
it only can take a few miles, only few miles.

Bridge:
Emerge in your gravity, oh mercy.
Circles and cycles, oh I need bridges for tides.
Oh I need bridges for tides.

Verse 2:
Driving the railroad beneath the parade
of the blossoms by the sea,
the treetops, the blueberry fields and the hummingbirds sing
oft the season´s change.

We like the "connect your own dots" writes and this is a good one.

And we like waltzes - you made good use of it with the RT's (a lot of them!)

And really nice lead and harmony vocals.

You have a special niche with your sound...we think it would be good
to stay on that path...and post the journey here!

Rebecca,

The layers of harmonies are striking . . . lovely vocals. You have a lot of instruments working on this one . . . it’s always tough to tell what’s playing where, but musically pe serhaps a bit too much going on later in the song. I like how you build early, but once you get into the chorus all those instruments keep playing. Perhaps experiment with dialing back on the musical backing in spots—e.g., on the second verse—and let those killer vocals and harmonies carry the song for a bit. Keep the listener’s ears guessing.

All of that’s suggestion and subjective opinion. Lose or use, as they say. It’s an absolutely killer song as is.

My best to you,

Deej

Hi!

Great song & listen! And acoustic waltzes are such a treat. There's a certain ambiguity to the lyric and that always fascinates me ... nice! I think the only thing I would suggest ... and it's not a big deal ... is to bring the acoustic bass a little more forward in the mix. Not too much ... but a bit more. Just my opinion. Nonetheless, it's a really nice song with a good delivery. Good stuff, for sure!

Wishing you the best. Be safe ...

Alan

Hello Rebecca and Jochen,

Very nice Irish-like song, with good vocals (harsh and sweet at the same time)!
This production is also well done!

WOw. There's a lot of musicians in there, and they all seem to surround those glorious voices with just the right blanket. Great sound all around, Rebecca and Jochen.

Very nice song that came together well. I felt like it was a wall of sound, acoustic style. Nice. Probably the best I've heard from you so far, JMHO. Vox were very good per usual.

I like your distinctive vocal style and nice tight harmonies - the sound is fairly trad folk but the vocals have a modern feel.
The arrangement is well done, though I could hear one or two less layers on the chorus working as well.
Listening to the last verse it occurred to me that it sounded like setting the scene and if it were mine I`d be tempted to use it as v1. Just a thought.
Lovely song!

Robert

I'm always impressed with your delivery.

Vocal quality is superb and musically very interesting.

Great effort, no question.

PG Music News
RealBand® Works Great in Windows® 11!

Here's an introductory look at RealBand® running on the preview version of Windows® 11!

Watch the video.

Customers LOVE Band-in-a-Box® 2021!

Check out some of the latest Band-in-a-Box® feedback we've received:

"There's a saying 'Give a man a fish, feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, feed him for a lifetime.' That's exactly what my friend did in 1990. He taught me how to use BIAB and I've used it hundreds of time to do arraignment and to jam with any style band."

"Love BIAB. I use it daily. Their support is great too!"

"RealTracks are amazing!!! I use BIAB for backtracks in my solo act... Still using the basic package and it's all need..."

"I have used Band in A Box for many years. If it would have been around when I was young, I would have been a much better musician. I use it for all my songs I have written and recorded. With Band In A Box I can sit in my room and sound like a whole band without having to put up with them!"

"If you know something about music and take the time to learn the program, you can make it do some amazing things. It is a great help to songwriters who want to demo their song without paying for studio time. It makes changes and tweaks much easier as well."

"Been using it for so many years. It's a great tool. The instruments that I don't have or play make up the void and it saves so much time. I use this program for every song I write."

"Great tool for the songwriter!"

"An essential part of my studio! I write songs on piano, but I'm not a pianist by a long way. BIAB is like having a roomful of session players in your studio, and just the simple act of taking your basic idea and hearing a skilled pianist play it presents so many new ideas and options you hadn't thought of."

"Powerful, easy to use, inexpensive and they even split the modest payments up if you want. No complaints. Lots of satisfaction."

"I added a steel guitar to a fully produced original. He followed every change like he was in the studio reading the chart. Fascinating technology!"

"I have used it to make backing tracks for six CD's with about 12 songs on each. They make a great gift!"

"It's simply a necessity - buy it now - the staff and support do a great job as well!"

"A great tool for us songwriters!"

"I LOVE Band-in-a-Box!"

"I see it as a very worthwhile investment. In fact, from initial purchase about 8 years ago, using the backing tracks I have made, my income from that investment has returned over 5,000% on the investment!"

Band-in-a-Box® - Boxing Clever - Sound on Sound #TBT

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® is more than 30 years old? I stumbled across this 1990 magazine article explaining the relatively new program, and think it's an enjoyable read for any Band-in-a-Box user - it really shows that we are always listening to user feedback when developing our program!

Read the article: Boxing Clever: Band-In-A-Box Software

A few of my favorite statements:

"The intention of PG Music's Band-In-A-Box package is to couple that speed and convenience with the improved flexibility of the personal computer. Versions are available for the Atari ST, Mac, and PC compatibles. Have the programmers succeeded? And can they rid themselves of the stigma of the auto-accompaniment section? Given the above state of affairs, the first hurdle that the program has to overcome is one of acceptance and, frankly, a name like 'Band-In-A-Box' is a bad start."

(I think our name was a great start!)

"The final results are, to say the least, impressive. Band-In-A-Box achieves something that most hardwired auto-accompaniment sections have never been able to do - inject a degree of feel into the music. It really does sound more human than so many of the computer generated pieces I've heard."

"...I'm quite convinced that PG Music will have a winner on their hands. This is one piece of software that you can get more out of than you put in."
