Michie, I really liked this one. The fiddle break is especially interesting. Sort of a break tempo. Good job.

Hi, George !

This sounds like an real "oldie"
and IMO I think this could have
gone surprisingly well as a
barbershop arrangement also ?
I enjoyed this one really much !

Cheers
Dani

This is so cool Michee.

Love the ol' soft shoe vaudeville vibe.

Fun listen. Enjoyed it.

Very well done, love the style and your voice is outstanding in it. Kind of has old country sound, like Jim Reeves to me. Thanks for sharing!

Don - Fit like min'

I tried to make a style and song that would sound kinda like a old Dixiland style.
I failed to do that but quite liked this style.
I added the fiddle to noodle around just to add interest.
-------------------------------------------------------
Dani - Fit like min' (this means - in Doric - How are you doing) smile

Thanks for saying that it sounded like an Oldie.
I was trying to get the oldie sound.
I may try your suggestion about a barbershop arrangement. smile
------------------------------------------------------------
Mike B - Thanks for taking a listen.

And of course for commenting that you liked it.
----------------------------------------------------
Josie - Hi Thanks for taking a listen.

Glad you liked the ol' soft shoe vaudeville vibe. smile

Enjoyable and interesting listen. I agree with the couple of "soft shoe" references. Very good use of the fiddle. Thanks for the post.

George,

It's all been said but the only thing missing that would have had me sitting in that old theater was a little crowd noise in the background.

As already in envisioned you in that "seersucker suit" with a straw hat just soft shoeing around that stage.

Good job.

Later

I can see the fiddler playing when I listen to the song.
Never thought about a theater act laugh

Thanks for taking a listen.

This has a happy old time feel to it.

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.
