I really enjoyed this, and I watched it all the way through. I noticed some little variances in the repetitions, and I so admire your "chops"...I could never get through any piece of this length without totally flubbing it up!! Great work!

HI Peter, fingers seem to be settling very slowly so hopefully they'll get back to some king of normality before I get too old to lift the damned box up lol

Graham,
Lively with lots of zing and slither from those dancing fingers; concentration but no pain showing on your face.
I like your midnight inspirations!

I absolutely love this, Graham! I wouldn't it wobbly fingers, I called it flying fingers. You make it seem to effortless. I appreciate you making videos of your songs, so we can see you in action. Again, great song.

Graham,
Fun tune & live playing! Probably could make a child party dance tune. I do wish backing would be heard louder, but I do understand it is a live scenario. Thank you for sharing.

We both have arthritis in our hands and, man, that makes what you are doing even more amazing to us. You were all over that box and, as others have said, the fingers were flying!

Very cool to listen to and watch.

Kudos!

Very well played, Graham. As others have said, dancing and flying seem more fitting descriptions for those fingers than wobbly.
Regards,
Leon

Fun tune!

As someone who couldn't memorize a tune to save his life, it's nice to see music being made the "old fashion" way. smile

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

Band-in-a-Box® - What People Are Saying...

Wow, check out the latest feedback from Band-in-a-Box® users!

"I have one song I've been torturing over to get the sound right for quite some time and I merely keyed in the chords and what BB generated is awesome. Just what I hoped that song would sound like. What had taken me months to get right (and couldn't), the program could do in about an hour - AMAZING!"

"Great Ear Training Exercises! And I love that that you can set the tempo to whatever you choose. It's great for learning a tune!"

"A very good and easy to use musical program!"

"It's amazingly easy to use! Write a song? No problem! Add background sound track to a video? No problem! Put notes on a staff and have BB make up a chord progression and tell what key you are in? No problem! Start with a chord progression and have BB make a melody line? No problem!"

"Still the best practice tool I have found, great for running lines, improvising over and really helpful for working on song writing ideas as well! Good for beginners, and the more musical skill and knowledge you have the more you will get out of the software."

"I create demo songs with Band-in-a-Box, it helps me to get my ideas across to my engineer!"

"Been using Band-in-a-Box for years. Outstanding product from a great company!"

"It's like buying a Musical History Jukebox. It comes with probably 3000 styles and is like hiring session musicians to play rhythm with you, they even have soloists! It introduces you to so many types of rhythms that you other wise would know nothing about. "

"Paul McCartney said you gotta have a great band behind you. Well, Band-in-a-Box is my band."

"It's as easy as typing in the chords, choosing your style, instruments, etc., and off you go! Learning the tune? You can slow it down while you work on it then speed it up. My favorite analogy is a good chess program, which will play at your speed and level and is eternally patient!"

"I love my Band in a box, it does so much! Besides all the RealTracks and song ideas, it's a great tool to stay sharp with your licks. Social distancing got you down? Can't jam with friends? Pick out any song and go to the mixer button, there you can mute any instrument that's playing so you can jump right in and play along!"

"I love it. I'm a drummer, and Band-in-a-Box really keeps me on my toes!"

"The DAW plugin is really great. Trust me on this. I use it with Studio One.

"This is how I've been able to gig solo for the past 20 years. Band-in-a-Box is the great equalizer for us none rhythm players."

"Wouldn't want to be without it! One of the best things I bought in my life. Simple as that."

"As a songwriter I really love to work with Band-in-a-Box. The only limitation is your own creativity."

"I've used Band-in-a-Box for 25 years and thanks to this program and the advice of PG Music staff I've written over 100 songs. It's great software and amazing help to me as a musician. CONGRATS!!!"

Thank you for all the amazing feedback!
