Steve, thanks for commenting. You have been greatly missed. Hope you're doing better. Tom

Greg, thanks I'll have to check that out. Tom



[quote=w]Good country rock!

Requires some sound balancing to remove some of the distortion or maybe that was intentional.


W, thanks for coming around and weighing in. Contrary to popular belief, distortion is not the enemy. Tom

Tommy,

I agree with Floyd. This is so very good! Outstanding guitar, vocals, mix, etc, and those drums sound FANTASTIC!

Excellent job!

Greg

- you are the Izotope poster boy

The song is full of "great grit" from the vocals to the guitars. Just enough to put that edge on it yet still allow everything in the mix to still shine. Hard to do -- I know cause, lordy know, I try to understand the techniques behind it. Easy to take for granted and listen to. Putting it all together is another thing.

Masterful!



Janice and Bud, Y'all are always so very kind to me. Thanks. Tom

Josie, Nailed? Wicked? I can't ask for more that that. Thanks. I always look forward to your comments. Tom

really love the guitar riff you open with and repeat. something that my songs have been missing. it really grounds the song and gives it identity.

and solid lyrics, very cohesive story and an interesting subject

and the opening diminished notes in the solo are inspired!

well done!

Band-in-a-Box® File Associations

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.
