I'm doing another 5 songs in 5 days songwriting challenge. This was day 2. It's a little bluesy and I really like it so I thought I would share it here. Let me know what you think.

Real Tracks:
1546: Bass, Electric,Country Swing
673:Oragan, B3, Background Blues BB
2905:Guitar, Electric, Rhythm Bright Bluesy Pop Colin
2687:Guitar, Electric, Soloist Blues Slow Even Brent Simple
RealDrums=Blues Rock Shuffle

Lyrics:
In the city of N'awlins they say the spirits never sleep.
They all come out round midnight. By the Quarter's where they creep.
You can hear their gritty voices howling down to Canal Street.

On dark and foggy nights you can sometimes see their shadows
Strolling down an alley neath the iron streetlights' glow.
Their there and then there gone. Where they go nobody knows.

Some say that it’s the music. The sweet soul soothing jazz.
Or maybe it’s the hoodoo that keeps drawing them back.

If your ever in N'awlins. Best be careful where you go.
Wouldn’t want to wind up dead son. The city might just steal your soul.
And you’ll end up much like me. Just another ghost.

So cool Samuel. Loved the intro. My kind of tune. Excellent vocal and lyric. Backtrack was just excellent. Guitar solo was very sweet...

Nice work on this one, Samuel smile Right off the bat, I love the bluesy groove here. You can definitely hear the "N'awlin's" influence here. There's lots of tiny details I've love here. The subtle organ adds a lot of character, and I don't think you could have chosen better drums.

Really well done! Thanks for sharing smile

Really digging the vibe on this one! It pulls you in as soon as the song starts. It has this eerie, haunting feeling to it. Great job. grin

Excellent bluesy feel to this. loved the lyric. For those that have been to NO, the lyric takes you right there to many meomories. Very well written. Loved the guitaring and nice smoky vocal. Excellent job. Enjoyed it.

Thanks everyone. I have a friend that is an accomplished blues musician. I've been helping him record his new album. He is going to re-record the vocals on this with his raspy voice and thick Cajun accent. If it comes out well it will go on his album. How cool!

Well done and just dark enough to well set the scene.

And a fine vocal and mix.

Samuel,
Very good groove- you put the right hoodoo in both lyrics and vocal.
Enjoyed the picture I got of the place.

Samuel, you had me at the gig-go. Great vibe, vocals, lyrics and mix.

I like the blues and you did it justice on this!

Nice work Sam. There are different shades to any color. To me, this is dark blues. wink Great song and expression of it.

You set the bar pretty high on already on day 2. smile

Really nice Samuel.

I enjoyed the authentic grittiness of this, and the solid blues feel.

Good lyrics, very evocative. Will be interesting to hear the other person's take as well.

Great job man.

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.
