Re: Monday Lisa

Hi Ralph, What can I say that I have not said before! :D I actually stumbeld across this a few days ago when surfing through Soundcloud, so I had a sneak preview. You have a good song here and IMHO working with the band has improved your presentation a lot. I felt that often in your own recordings t...

Re: Band in a Box

Aha!

Thanks for the nomenclature lesson! I tried "chorus" functions yesterday and thought I was doing something wrong because it seemed to insert lots of bars!. I would never have guessed the alternative meaning of chorus!

Re: Band in a Box

Reply to my own post isn't that a bit like talking to your self. I had my first real play with BiB this afternoon and of course, although I have downloaded the manual, it remains unopened. I decided to make my first project a traditional tune, firstly I know the tune, and I have the music. The song ...

Band in a Box

I know. I know, I KNOW!, it's not for real musicians but then I am not a real musician! I have basic guitar skills but whilst I can just about handle a simple folk style melody when writing songs I often have a concept in my head which my skills cannot accomodate. I write rockers, power ballads, wee...

Re: Salvation Road

"Just leave it Tom" now there is a red rag to bull (hope you understand :-) ) You are talking to a stubborn B, but you knew that. I'm enjoying thinking about this, and before I look at the next couple of verses I wondered whether the song would benefit from a link verse/bridge between the ...

Re: Salvation Road

OK Frau Elder, You asked for it, the poison pencil has been sharpened. :evil: I listened to the track several times this afternoon and whilst I like the concept, the story and the melody I have the frustrating feeling that it has not quite got it's message through. I think this could take some time,...

Re: LOW WATER BRIDGE - Chainsaw Dreams

Hi Ralph, Good to hear from you again, I noticed you visit from time to time, it has been pretty quiet recently but hopefully FAWM wil give us a kick start. Since you referred to 50/90 I listened to both versions of the song for comparison. I have a feeling it was lyrics only when I looked during 50...

Re: Scorecloud

I tried it last night "singing" Grey Cloaked Assassin unaccompanied into the mike. The app recognised that it was in 6/8 time, suggests that the key is B flat, and produces staff on the Bass clef. I normally do this in A when using the guitar. My first impression is that even a slow air li...
