Hi All,

A new one from me for this challenge,

"Come and Get It" is a song composed by Paul McCartney for the 1969 film The Magic Christian. The song was performed by Badfinger, produced by
McCartney and issued as a single 5 December 1969 in the UK, and 12 January 1970 in the US on the Beatles' Apple label.

Hope You enjoy my music video of this, Played on The Tyros 5

Hi Brian,

Lovely 60's guitar sounds. But what makes this piece so good is the way you have arranged the 'backing'. You always manage to create backings that are interesting to listen to. I seem to remember you do call your Tyros 5 an 'arranger' keyboard. Music is not just a question of 'playing the tune'. It's knowing how to go that extra mile.

Hi Brian,

We have been to Liverpool a couple of times and been on that ferry. Always think of this song when we do that. Nice arrangement you have done.

I have never heard of clyp.it Is that a bit like SoundCloud?

Brian,

It's good to see you posting some of your work back in the TDP Forum. I personally have missed your contributions, as I know how much time you spend putting a song together. Not only choosing the Style and Registrations for a piece, but your ability to do 'multi-tracking' which puts the cream on the cake.

Brian,

You have put a lot of work into this piece, and it shows. Great rhythm. Hadn't realised it was from a film.

I presume that you used Movie Maker to do this. Are you using the 'paid for' version of Windows Movie Maker for Windows 10 (the one I downloaded onto my Laptop) .. or another 'free' version that came 'packaged' with another version of Windows?

And does it look the same as mine? Mine looks like this when you launch it:

viewtopic.php?f=317&t=5446#p36602

In the video I found showing how to use Movie Maker it's referred to as Windows "LIVE", which I presume is from somewhere else as my version is not called that .. yet it looks the same.

Hi Hugh,

That track came together very quickly as all good tracks do and with only one extra track added to the original piece.

Its the window version of Movie Maker I used to make that video, exactly the same as the one in the post you linked to.

I just used mostly single images and the caption option with contemporary selected from the drop down memory

The chorus I used an animated loop that I repeated several times by copying and pasting till I got it to the length of the chorus.

I am purposely trying to keep the content of the videos down as it starts to become a documentary and not about the music anymore

Hi Peter,

Thanks for commenting and watching the video and listening to the music and pleased you enjoyed it,

The music comes first, but I do like to make a video too, but sometimes it can be a bit like making a documentary and becomes a bit much

All the best, Brian007 :D :D

Thanks Brian

The recording was actually made with my I Phone. I use a 'Mikey Digital' plugged into my I phones charger point, and a direct recording can then be made via L/R keyboard outputs into a 3.5mm stereo input socket in the Mikey. The results are excellent, but the connectors are a bit fiddly and can easily cause problems if moved slightly.

Thanks for commenting

Regards

Here's my attempt at the title song from the 1964 motion picture "Hush, Hush, Sweet Charlotte" starring Bette Davis, Olivia de Havilland, Joseph Cotten, and Agnes Morehead.

Dave. Is this the Roland you are playing? Or one of your Ensoniq keyboards? Very nice sounding voices. I really like that soft sounding choir (?) backing. Well arranged and played. Hugh

Brings back the memories! Nice switch to the violin in the middle.

Brideshead Revisited is a 1981 British television serial, produced by Granada Television for broadcast by the ITV network. The serial is an adaptation of the novel Brideshead Revisited (1945) by Evelyn Waugh. It follows, from the 1920s to the early 1940s, the life and romances of the protagonist Charles Ryder—including his friendship with the Flytes, a family of wealthy English Catholics who live in a palatial mansion called Brideshead Castle.

The film came out in 2008.

Yes it's my Roland AT-90SL.
The movie is interesting and worth watching. The trailer is posted on you tube.

This one is from Mary Poppins, which came out in 1964. My wife and I went to see this in Exeter, but hadn't looked at the bill-board properly. We just saw 'Julie Andrews' and assumed we were going to see 'The Sound Of Music'. Quite a shock then, but we were completely mesmerised. An amazing film when seeing it for the first time.

Feed The Birds

Played on my Yamaha AR 80. When I got to playing the chorus for the second time round I was at a loss as to what voices to choose in order to get a contrast. And then the penny dropped (or rather, tuppence dropped). The bird food was being sold on the steps of St.Pauls! So Cathedral Organ. And the ending ... I have always wanted to sit at a Cathedral Organ, pull all those stops out and do a grand ending. So I have seized my chance and done that here. Listen with headphones, or an amplifier with a sub-woofer to really get those bass pipes sounding.

That is really nice Hugh. Strangely enough I have been working on the same piece. I have a Chris Powell registration disk for my AT90 that includes "sounds of St. Pauls." I start with a simple registration then add a choir in the middle then end with the full pipe organ. Still not quite there yet.
This gives me an Idea for another theme...Disney music.

Dave,

If you do manage to play Feed The Birds please go ahead and put it up in here. Members ask me sometimes if it is OK to put up a piece that somebody else has done. Well yes, of course it is! Two people would never play a piece the same, and it's always interesting to hear how somebody else has tackled a piece. The more the merrier! We are not in competition with each other. We complement each other. Not compliment, which would be patting each other on the back!

If you want to start a Theme of Disney music, by all means do so. Start a NEWTOPIC in this section and put your Theme in the Subject. It would also be a help if you could do a bit of research on Google and direct us to where maybe there is a listing of these. I know quite a few tunes, but wouldn't know if they were Disney or not.
