Mike,

As a Virgin Lion, my birthday is on the cusp of virgo and leo, apparently, I enjoyed that.
I like the guitar a lot.

Hi Mike,

thanks for that birthday present.
That fast guitar lead is not yours, is it?
It sounds great.

Cool jam.

The start sounds like it's chopped off a bit.

Nice playing.

I'd say that all Leo's have a birthday. But that's just me. I don't put much credence into the whole zodiac thing..... suffice it to say I do have a birthday coming up in a few more days..... right on the cusp as they say..... for what it's worth..... just one more ride around the sun.

A cool sound, Mike. Good mix. A good listen.

Wasn't sure if the guitar was you or not - nice either way -

Amazing command of that fretboard!! Really cool listen. The EP works as naturally as can be with the tune. Very sweet and enjoyable tune!! Take care. Greg

Many thanks for your listening to this creation and the very nice comments, Josie, Alyn, Dani, Herb, Floyd (will download your CD - reading a lot of good about it), Greg, Charlie and Noel smile

Sorry for being so tardy, but life is really hectic right now. Being 57 now and staring a layoff in the face is a lot of stress... but, enough of that...

I played the lead (distorted gitfiddle), the rest is all BIAB RTs... I was so happy with this style and the way it performed, almost kinda like Island music, maybe even African - ala what Paul Simon did for a while.

The beginning may have been a bit choppy, because I did everything in one take... probably could have been a bit smoother all the way, but hey, it was one of those "GOT TO DO IT" feelings I had LOL!!!!

Thanks again, dear friends.

Watch Tobin (and Charlie!) demonstrate Band-in-a-Box® 2015 for Windows at the 2015 NAMM Show: Play video...

Tobin does a great job of showing just how easy it is to create a song with Band-in-a-Box!

This video was posted on January 23, 2015 to the Keyboard Instrument Chops and Gear YouTube Channel.

We've added a new "record using" option within the Audio Settings dialog, and updated many existing features based on user feedback.

Even if you choose to have a backup copy of your Band-in-a-Box® packages shipped, you'll still have the download links available to you - no need to wait!

We've made it even easier to get started with Band-in-a-Box® with the Easy Payment Plan 4 - when you choose this payment option you'll pay four equal monthly payments starting on the day of your order.

Band-in-a-Box® File Associations

You may have noticed when you were installing Band-in-a-Box® for Windows that you were asked if you would like to Associate Band-in-a-Box songs and styles with Band-in-a-Box? But, what does that mean?

It's actually pretty simple - basically, if you select this option while you're installing the program, files with the extensions .SGU, .MGU, and other Band-in-a-Box files will open directly in the program if you select them from outside the program.

Missed this option during your setup, but you'd like to apply it now? Go to File | File Utilities | Associate File types with Explorer within the program.

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.
