Incredibly impressive.

Thanks Peter! I am one of the early Beatle fans. I remember walking with my 16 year old cousin, holding her hand (I was about 8) and listening to I wanna hold your hand on a transistor radio. THose were the days! Take care. Greg


Greg
I guess that would be say 1965 based on our age bracket! Hope you enjoyed your milestone this year.

Hello, Greg

Really good melody with the characteristic chord progression!
Also very nice and pleasant vocal.
As Peter said, you really have channeled the Beatles here.
And as Rob said, what a great vocal range you show us here.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

Well, since folks are mentioning who it reminds them of.....

For us it’s like John singing a Paul write with a Pet Sounds mystique...or something like that smile

Your tendency toward positivity is always welcome and this certainly does not disappoint with the perfect vocal and arrangement to carry the message.

Well done!

THanks Dave. Really appreciate the nice feedback! No, the guitar is Brent (he's my fave in the box). I'll post the RTs soon. Take care. Greg

Nice one.

I agree... this is the missing Beatles track from their Sgt Pepper album.

Nice write too.

Everything about this is very good.

WOW Greg!! What a great tune!! As others have mentioned, it's very Beatlesque! Puts me very much in mind of Lennon's "Dear Prudence" , but truly stands on it's own! You have been producing some very good stuff lately and I am much impressed with your skills! Keep on rockin' Take care, Torrey

Well, this is simply fantastic. Simple as that!
So many mentioned the Beatles and Lennon, and rightly so.
I'd say that this song actually reminded me of "Free as a bird", which is Lennon / Beatles produced by Jeff Lynne. And indeed, the sound of your voice reminds me of Jeff Lynne a bit, but the melody is totally Lennon.
Anyway, this was a great listen. A real pearl.

Well... it hit you in a very cool way indeed!
The chord progression is awesome, so is the melody you sing (which is perfectly sung as always wink )
Now we're going to sit and wait until we get a certain hit too laugh

Fabulous vocal. the arrangement is superb as is the mix. Love the song and the message. Your vocal just makes it that much more enjoyable. Fabulous song and performance.

Wishing you the very best,

Alan


Thanks so much Alan for your very nice comments and consistent wonderful support! Take care. Greg

Overall, it's just an example of a well written and well thought out song.

You should be proud of this one - thanks so much for sharing!


Thanks Deryk! I love seeing the PG music people respond to the forum! Take care. Greg

And what a vocal! Gorgeous.

A stunningly beautiful write. I love the way you use words. A melody to die for.

Have to say again... This is about as good as it gets.

WOW.

I agree the forum has had some ON FIRE moments! Really flattered to be part of that, especially by someone with your discriminating taste! Take care. Greg

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.
