Hi All,

This is called Albuquerque.

I walked to Albuquerque
In the first part of my dream
Following the path you left me
Following the path you left me

I left my home in Woodstock
In the second part of my dream
Following the path you left me
Following the path you left me

Woke up in Albuquerque in the rain
Running horses and falling manes

I walked to Albuquerque
It was midnight in my dream
Following the path you left me
Following the path you left me

I traced my steps this morning
In the third part of my dream
Following the path you left me
Following the path you left me

Woke up in Albuquerque in the rain
Running horses and falling manes

I walked to Albuquerque
In the first part of my dream
Following the path you left me
Following the path you left me

I walked to Albuquerque
In the first part of my dream

Bob,

A very dream-like write. Which makes sense - it's a dream song!

The baritone guitar suits the subject matter, too.

This could easily be in the background of any number of current shows on Netflix or Amazon. (OA would be a good one for it...)

Good mix (as always).

Poetic and non-specific, very evocative.

I liked the subtle build as you brought in the instruments.

Nicely done, as usual.

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

I recall Neil Young doing a song called Albuquerque. In fact I could hear him covering your version.
Nice relaxed mood and immediately familiar. Good choice of instruments and nicely performed.
Very enjoyable.

Bob,
I read the lyrics, listened to the tune and had very particular thought in mind to my response, but as soon as I scrolled to the first reply, FJ's post caught my eyes. He wrote exactly what I was feeling smile This was wayyy strange.

A very calming, dream like song indeed. Nicely put together and performed. Loved the tremolo guitar choice.

Thank you for sharing!

Misha.

Bob,

Your vocal carries the feeling. A dream that gets to you is powerful song inspiration!
I like the repetition in the lyrics and of course that tremolo guitar.
I also hear a little Neil Young in this... and also the kind of song Emmylou Harris chose for Wrecking Ball.


Robert

I always like it when you use that tremolo guitar, it is a good fit for your sound I think.

Great as always, Bob, I'm a fan!

Another cool track Bob!! Very textural. Rolls along so nicely with that Brent baritone guitar feeding the rhythm as it goes. Nicely done!! Take care. Greg

Nice work on this smile Love the imagery in the vocals, your rustic delivery adds a lot of merit as well. I found it fit perfect with the instrumentation, and it was nicely catchy too.

Thanks for sharing!

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.
