Nice tune! I love me some echo-y drums. And some great guitar work too.

Thank you so much David! Im glad you enjoyed it.

BIAB has really opened up a range of new ways for me to express myself. This song has some of my favorite guitar pieces. That particular guitar is an old Fender Squire Strat that I have since given to a friend that came upon hard times and was guitarless.

I've found the same thing. Often, my creative outlets have been such that it takes weeks for me to get to a place where I feel like the vision in my head has been somewhat realized, but I'm finding using Band-in-a-Box really speeds up that process, and it feels more satisfying earlier. Maybe you feel the same way. I can tell a lot of time was put into this song, though.

That's a truly noble act! The world could use more selfless actions like this, especially when it comes to sharing tools for expression and creation. One of my favourite bands, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, (weird name, I know) won a big music prize here in Canada a few years ago, and donated all of their winnings to a program that gives musical instruments to prisons and rehab facilities. It really impressed me, and I appreciate your kind act too. Everyone should have access to music, it's such a basic human thing.

Nice work, especially the guitars. Sounded like it could be a prelude to Ry Cooder's Mexican Divorce.

Thanks Peter!I am glad you enjoyed it.

While the tunes and their arrangements are important to me, I always strive to make my guitar work the jewel in the crown of my songs.

Lively, uplifting, easy-beat. What's not to like?

Nicely done - very uplifting and easy to follow, and gentle on the ears. I can imagine it sounding unreal live.

Thanks for sharing smile

This video was posted on January 23, 2015 to the Keyboard Instrument Chops and Gear YouTube Channel.

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.
