Chris,

I really enjoyed this! I like the chord progression. You mention the Yamaha QY700, but you didn't list any MIDI tracks, I'm assuming you played some of the song (vibes?)... is that correct?

Very nice "chill" music! I'm sitting here with a fresh cup of coffee tapping my foot to the music!

Very nice and very smooth. This has the vibe of a PG Music tutorial video. I think it would be a great song for PG Music to feature on their Face Book page.

Hi Pat

The melody is played with my Yamaha QY700 which is a midi music machine. I've used the orgel. That's a kind of music box.

Thanks for all your nice comments. Chris

I enjoyed listening to your composition, Chris.

Although I don't play this style of music day to day, I do appreciate excellence in music composition and execution, regardless of style. And this composition delivers, which is a testament to your excellence in artistry.

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.
