A little tune that came to me whilst tinkering on the piano, now arranged in BIAB for piccolo, guitar, piano, accordion viola and violin.

Hope you like it : smile

Really pretty music! Would have liked to hear a different lead instrument (more organic and natural) carry the melody (which is beautiful). Try a string instrument or solo horn for the melody! Nice stuff! Take care. Greg

Fitting title. I'm not sure about the accordion (or organ) in the intro, and there might be a couple spots where the bass is playing a wrong note...I think. At about 1:03 is one such place. Hopefully others will listen and give you some more feedback.

Very enjoyable melody, just may need a few edits to let it shine. You can get help with that in the other forums.

It sure brought images of England to me, and that was before I noticed your location:)

Hi there! Had a listen and was pleasantly surprised. If you can get the flute to somehow change to a Irish tinwhistle then you could develop this into a cool piece.

This is a really beautiful song. I like the instrumentation you have now.

If I could make one suggestion it would be to add some realism to the piccolo. By realism I mean have some volume changes like when one starts to blow into the piccolo and a fad out when one runs out of air. That coupled with some vibrato in spots would make it sound more real IMHO.

But even if you don’t change a thing this is one great song.

Although our RealTracks collection doesn't include many 'uncommon instruments', we do offer some pretty unique choices!

On top of the usual varieties we offer for Piano, Guitar, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet, Bass, Tuba, Trumpet, Trombone, and more - our RealTracks library also offers a nice selection of Shakuhachi and Kalimba - there's even a Koto RealTrack included in Set 212!

Kalimba: RealTracks Set 271
Koto: RealTracks Set 212
Shakuhachi: RealTracks Sets 193 & 212

Just because Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac is here doesn't mean we've forgotten our 2019 users!

If you're still using Band-in-a-Box® 2019, make sure you download the latest patch update (b324) for an updated splash screen (macOS 10.12 and 10.13 users), smoother Song Titles dialog, access to your (purchased) RealTracks Set 328, and we've corrected the reported issue with opening songs from older versions of Band-in-a-Box in the 2019 version.

Review - Loops-with-Style PAK 2 for Band-in-a-Box® 2020

"Dr. Dave" Walker is at it again! You may remember his recent reviews of both Band-in-a-Box 2020 for Mac and Xtra Styles PAK 9 - now he has something to say about our Loops-with-Style PAK 2 - check it out: Click here to read...

With money being tight for most musicians, this is a wonderful gift for those on a limited budget. At $29, it offers months and years of fun and experimentation, bringing many ideas to fruition as songs with enough variation so that your audience doesn’t jump to "aw, that's a computer!" while still keeping the power of the software in your hands.
-"Dr. Dave" Walker

Thank you again Dr. Dave for the great review!
