I have to say I did enjoy that. You managed to capture the quintessential essence of the Beatles melody technique, without specifically copying their work.

A rather unique delivery.

Nice job. I can hear Beatle influence, Beatle style instrument choices and Beatle style melody lines in your piece and all the while maintaining originality.

Enjoyed this.

A brilliant piece of tribute right there, the Beatles vibe is absolutely unmistakeable without blatantly plagiarising.

You've made a 'follower' out of me cool

My first reaction to your post was: How can someone create instrumental music that sounds "Beatlish"? Well, you've done it!! Very nice, pleasant, melodic music with a definite Beatle vibe. I love the Beatles so I really enjoyed this! Nice job!! Take care. Greg

Awesome tribute, Christian! Can hear The Beatles influence coming through strong on this one, most definitely! Only thing it's missing is some singing from John or Paul smile Thanks for sharing!

#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.
