A wonderfully hot mix without being over compressed.

Loved the whole thing.

Cheers, ROG.


Thanks very much, ROG!

I actually used a Strat for all the guitars in this one. Next tune up will probably have at least one Tele part.

Sure, but you gotta be able do it convincingly and, man, did you ever.

Both of your performances are simply stellar.

Scorching guitar and a vocal that sits out front in the mix -- and sits perfectly in that elusive spot where a great vocal should reside.

You can add us to every superlative that has already been mentioned regarding this production.

Kudos!!!

J&B



Thanks Janice and Bud! Made my day when I read those comments laugh

Very very well done.
Two thumbs up.

Could you expand on the 5 armed angels a little please.
(sets my mind of in all sorts of directions).

Cheers.


Wow, very nice thing to say!

I updated the song description with an explanation I received from Chris about the lyrics.

Thanks, Kenny!

Yes, the little quote is from Cause we've ended as lovers. It wasn't planned, it just popped out when I was jamming over the solo section, it fit well so I decided to leave it as a nod to him.

The guitar - (loved the Beck quote) tasteful in the extreme (great timing throughout), complimentary and exciting (can't do much better than that)
Excellent vocal and a strong arrangement. Really well done.

Peter


Thanks very much, Peter, I really appreciate reading those comments from you!

Hi Robert,

Yes, I thought the lyrics would be up your alley! She has a real way with words, as do you.

As has been previously stated - radio quality and radio ready. The talent on this track is as good as any I've heard in a very long time. Thanks for a wonderful listen.

Wishing all you the very best.

Very nice things to say, thanks very much!

All the best to you and Di as well.

GREAT WORK Dave!!! Everything in this reflects professionalism!! First of all the vocal is as good as it gets! I hope you realize how blessed you are to have this young lady singing your songs!! I'm sure you do! Next, the tone on that guitar is so good! I know that it took years to develop your sound! Also, I hear and appreciate all the subtle little touches in the song such as the work putting the percussion in just the right places and the faint/soft electric guitar I could hear panned left in my headset! You always produce excellent work and this is another fine example! Take care, Torrey

Thanks for noticing the subtle stuff, Torrey! I spent a lot of time working on that. And of course thanks for mentioning the tone on the guitar! smile

And yes, I do feel blessed to be working with Christiane, we have lots of fun working on these songs together.

However I should point out that they are not my songs, they are our songs. Lyrics and vocal melodies are always developed by her, and for this song she also played piano.

Thanks again, I appreciate it! smile

Several listens... Excellent! Great mix.

floyd


Agree with Floyd. Absolutely great!! Love the arrangement. I also picked up that fluid Felderish Hotel Cal vibe and the few riffs from Cause We've Ended as Lovers by Beck. This may be my new fave by you guys!!! Take care. Greg

Thanks very much for the kind words, Greg! smile

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.
