Here is a tune I wrote that I recorded with Dan Lippert on harmonica and Dale Jernberg on harmony vocal. I used John Jarvis RT on piano, along with RT's on bass, and drums. I added guitar and lead vocal.

Hi Fred,

I've enjoyed hearing some of your folk songs. No Second Chance is a different type of tune for you and a nice change of pace.

Great work all around. Nice lyrics, nice singing, etc.

It took a while for my ears to get used to the wide pan of the instruments - guitar in one ear, piano in the other. And a bit too much ride for my ears...

Hey, I've got to complain about something. These polished songs set the bar too darned high for mortals like me! wink

Thanks for posting - I liked it a lot!

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Nice lay back country feel. Harmonica fills work nice, and good lyrics.

cool groove in this one. loved the harp and the vocals. one issue to me is it seems a bit cluttered over all. A problem i seem to develop on most of my projects.

Hi Fred,

I listened to your song, and the great JJ Cale passed in front of me, alive and well!!!

Need to say that I loved it.

Productionwise the standard on this forum is so high I'm feeling quite small.

Loved it!

I have been so busy I forgot to look at the comments until today. Thanks for listening and the positive comments. I do have to watch the ride cymbals in RDs!! Rides eat up the high end of the mix.

I have recorded two songs this week for a 14-song album. I love having BIAB for my rhythm section. I did find a pedal steel part that works well, as well as a banjo.

Hi Fred,

A hearty congratulations to you, Dan and Dale. This sounds terrific. The panning is unusual but it worked for me on my speakers.

Extremely well assembled and musicianship shines everywhere.

All the best,
Noel

Note: This only applies to this Band-in-a-Box product, and does not apply to other products that you might have in your order, including the physical backup copy if selected.

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.

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.
