Jinx,
A song of all ages, I'm afraid. Beautifully put together, looks simple (but isn't) :-)
Special thumbs up for Clare... with vocals that touch the soul...
I guess in a previous life I was Irish

We need more anti-war songs..... after all. we've been in a constant state of war now for how many decades? No victory, no enemies defeated.....lives shattered, sons and daughters buried.....

Maybe I need to write and anti-war song too.... oh wait, I have....


Nice song. This reminds me of Fairport Convention and some of the other groups of the time..... nicely done.

I like your singer's voice.

This sounds like some of the anti-war folk songs from the 60's maybe something Judy Collins would sing. Now that is a good thing in my book!

Everything about this is perfect!

This is a keeper.

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.
