Another very cool song. Super vocal and lyric. Acoustic was a very nice setting for the song. Lovely harmonies.

Have you looked at that Data Filter yet? It is a powerful tool I find useful often for copy/cut/paste type edits. It lets you narrow things down. I agree with Rharv. Part Markers are the BIAB markers on the Chord Sheet.

Jump to new posts Re: PROJECT M presents HAPPINESS by Mark Hayes @ 31 minutes 36 seconds ago

I really enjoyed the snappy 90s "Roxette" feel and the liquid-y, accented (to an American) vocals. I did find the chorus less satisfying, reaching out in a different direction with less success. But everything comes together with "let's go!" =8^)

Nice one Hans & Scott. I'd have preferred to hear the lead intro centred but that's not a deal breaker. Nice narrative and an UP vibe.

Fascinating. Sounds like something Bela Fleck might do. Different, experimental and ultimately successful! Kudos! J&B
I DLed it and played with it a bit. I couldn't find anything that I could use but I just dabbled a little. There are four pages of sounds for each side so when time permits I will do a little more exploring.

As always your use of BiaB is very, very high bar. Great swing! We love many music genre but seem to always favor a swing or shuffle -- might those years way back when I played some walking bass Great mix .. everybody has their spot on that stage. Excellent! J&B

You know I love the song. Which part? ALL of it! You have multiple hooks that work from the rhythm, note choices AND repetition. You don't have an earworm with this one, you have a damn earworm farm! The big takeaway I'm seeing, that I think is the coolest thing ever, is how this song is so relatable for so many. To me there are two kinds of great lyric writers... 1-Those who can write a GREAT story that you get to witness in a song. There's emotional power in that. 2-Those who write a speci

Ear Training Games in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows

October 1, 2021 is National Kids Music Day!

Head to the Practice Window in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows, and you'll see fun games that are fun ear training options for kids: Music Replay & Pitch Invasion.

Of course, you don't have to be a kid to like these games, I think there a fun way to learn at any age!

Music Replay is just what it sounds like - the program plays a 1-bar melody, and the user plays it back. Get it right, and you'll keep building that melody (and skill) within the game - get it wrong, and you'll be met with a warning tone and have to try again... it's quite addictive, and a lot of fun!

If you like a classic arcade game, then you'll love Pitch Invasion! We've managed to incorporate aliens with pitch-recognition skills in this exciting game, where you'll match the pitch of the alien ship descending towards your planet trying to destroy your collection of instruments - match the pitch and you've saved your instruments, make a mistake and the ship keeps coming... you'll have a few tries to get it right, if you're quick, but if all your instruments are destroyed - it's game over! The game speeds up as your skills improve, and you'll earn points along the way, with bonus points available throughout the game.

Open up your Band-in-a-Box® for Windows today to give it a try!

These ear training games are also included in Musical Arcade for Windows.
