I suppose this is more 70s to 80s rock than anything else.
Used Brett with one held bass and one rocking bass and acoustic strum.

Did I get it right?

Did you get it right???

In my humble opinion, I would give a big thumbs up and a YEAH BUDDY!

Sounds like it was ripped right from one of the Traveling Wilbury's cassettes!

Great playing and just the right sound for the era. And in my view for all eras.

There're some sibilant and plosive vocal things that could be dealt with as the voice is so far forward but the rest of the package is good good.

Hey Vic ...

Great to see you over here. Welcome to the site!

I really like this and I agree with the Traveling Wilburys reference. I've enjoyed your music a lot over the past number of years (7 or 8?). Good to hear another one from you. Will be watching for more!

Best to you. Be safe ...

Alan

Vic,
Sounds good to me.I like your vocal and the ringing rocking guitars. The lyrics are straightforward and still have memorable lines,like these:

Irritating
captivating
.. alternating .... pain
You're insane

Very catchy melody.
Welcome to the forum!

Robert

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

Vic,
Clever lyrics and phrasing. Good instrumentals and mix. For some strange reason lyrics reminded me of some U2 tunes. Enjoyed it!

P.S. You have some pretty cool songs in your SC library. I liked "Billy". If it has BIAB tracks, please post it here, I am sure it will be appreciated.

Misha.

Thanks rayc.
I thought I'd already replied but it's not showing up here.

I was saying that I do tend to be loose on the sibilants.
When you get older your ears don't pick up the high frequencies very well.

I have adjusted the vocal down a tad now and tried to cut some of the other stuff.
Thanks for your comment.

Vic

Hi Misha.
Thanks for that generous comment.
Not sure why U2 but if you think of it, it would be interesting to know.

As you ask, I will post Billy in a few days from now.

Thanks again
Vic

I think I worked on the mix longer on this one than any other.
Either age is getting to me at last or I'm getting more picky.

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.
