That was THE most interesting video I have seen in a LONG time! I am so into neuro-pathways and wiring of the brain for music. This spoke volumes to me.

Thanks Mario for sharing that! I real treasure in my book!

I have tried such a bike more than once and it is difficult. So far I made about 10 to 15 yards before the bike sabotaged further usage.

http://www.erlebnisbahn-ratzeburg.de/archiv/bilder/pic2scr.pl?file=2006/Falschrad_1024x768.jpg
(That picture of from the location's web site, I'm not the person in the photo.)

The guy in the video did have a straight path to follow with lots of empty roome to the left and to the right. In Schmilau, that is where that picture is taken, you don't have the room to really explore that bike.

It is not only that knowledge is not a synonym for understanding, what [probably] everybody is doing wrong in a situation like this, is the simple thing of overreacting. Did you see how far he turned the handlebar und thus the wheel? If you corrected your driving like this with a regular bicycle you also would eratically hop off the bike.

The next time I'm at that location is in October. I will try that bike again. If you have a chance, try such a bicycle. It is quite an experience.

I agree about the overreacting but when you are trained into thinking that when I move the handle bars left the bike will go left and if it doesn't go left fast enough you naturally turn the handle bars farther to the left! On this bike that means crash ville!

I'm not sure about that, but I took the opportunity being early before the rest of the crowd arrived. Firstly just keeping the feet on the ground. I tell you, the first yard was a major achievement.

Actually when you try that bike you maintain a too slow speed. Too slow means that the gyroforces are not yet in effect. You are thrown out of balance and then you overreact. This happens because trained instinct overrules the brain. I find that riding this bike is similar to backing up with car and trailer.

But I will try again...and again I will not master it (for more than 10 meters).

I thought there were several very profound observations made in that video:

Knowledge is not the same as understanding
Our competence is based on our biases
when we try to eliminate bias, we simply replace it with a new bias.

I liked the engineer's cheerful enthusiasm that flavored all of his communication.

I subscribe to that. I kind-a always knew that but couldn't put the finger onto it.

Now, that will influence my teaching methods. This is the best part of the video for me.

Yes, indeed.

But there is a twist: Left-handed pianists to be might have an advantage with this piano over those left-handed pianists who had to master the traditional one. And concert halls might have to have a second set of pianos and to maintain their playability -- if this idea catches on.

#TBT - Band-in-a-Box® 2006 for Windows Ear Training Fun!

With the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2006 for Windows we added two great games for ear training: Pitch Invasion and Music Replay!

Pitch Invasion helps to develop perfect pitch as you shoot down "alien" notes invading from above (you hear the note sound, and click on the on-screen piano/MIDI or QWERTY keyboard to shoot them down).

Music Replay develops your pitch, rhythm, and melody recognition by replaying what the program plays, in note, rhythm, or melodic modes.

These games can still be accessed with newer versions of the program - in Band-in-a-Box® 2018 you'll find these by accessing the Practice Window or Ear Training Window, both located in the Window drop-down menu. The Practice Window can also be accessed using the Practice button within the main Band-in-a-Box screen (don't see it? CTRL+T to change the view).

Learn all about the features released with Version 2006 here.

Amazing Band-in-a-Box User Comments!

Great program with lots of support through the publisher and after-market. Use it for teaching, practicing, and gigging.
-Andrew L.

I just got my 6th film placement on a song recorded entirely in Band-in-a-Box. You guys rock!
-Terry Fernihough (Band-in-a-Box Endorsing Artist!)

I love this program. I have only had it for around a month but it has made things a lot easier for me. I no longer have to scour the internet for backing tracks. I just plug in the chords I want to use, find the style I want and done. Saving me so much time and being able to transpose into different keys is awesome too.
As the days go on I will be delving deeper into what it can do, importing some of my backing tracks into Abelton 9 to play with and writing some songs.
Best money I have spent on something in while.
-Peter S.

I started using Band-in-a-Box around 1990. It was the DOS version naturally and I used one of those old portable computers with dual floppy drives and a built in 9" monochrome display. I connected midi cables to a great sounding Yamaha keyboard and played my music using midi tracks. I did a demo for a university music class that was a lot of fun. Wow, it is almost unimaginable to see where this product has elevated to today. I have upgraded many times over the past 28 years but each time I am even more amazed. Thank you PG Music for being such a major part of my love for music all of these years!!!
-Dwayne G.

Incredible Software. Great for ignorance and experts and for anyone who wants to deal with music. If you do not have a hobby and want to have one "band in a box" is the best choice. Simple, but if you want to be an expert on it, you need to make an effort to master it perfectly for perfect use. The only disadvantage is if you do not want to become a musician, and use it, you will become a perfect musician. Therefore, be cautious. It's not a toy.
-Ilija B.

I’ve been using it for about the same time (20 years). I’m a trumpet player and just really want some backing on lead sheets. With the Real Styles - it sounds fantastic! Takes just minutes to input chord changes and find the right style. There is so much you can do and I love having the Soloist features to really add color.
-Mike B.
