Captain,
Very good tune and fine reflection of "out times".
Pizzicato worked nicely with sparse solo and ooohs. Cool variation in singed <-> spoken word vocals. Liked it! Thank you for sharing.

Misha.

We recently lost a very long time friend to Covid-19 who was fit and took precautions. His widow
posted this: "I lost a loved one ... I wear this mask to protect yours." Says it all.

Needless to say we enjoyed your song. Good vocal and nice use of the BGV's.

The arrangement and track selection support the lyric and message very well.

Well done,

J&B

PS It would be nice to know the BiaB tracks used, etc. You on guitar?

Thanks Misha,
Tried to add a a little interest with the sharp staccato chords and backing vocals.

Thanks for the comments,
So sad that we have to debate whether taking simple steps to save lives is good or bad.

For those who believe wearing a face covering is an infringement on their freedom, I wonder if their OK with a food handler not washing their hands after taking a crap.
We should put signs in restaurant washrooms " Employees Not Required To Wash Hands"
After all, washing your hands is such a terrible burden and infringement on liberty, we wouldn't want to expect anyone to do that, would we?

Sorry to hear of your friend's loss, if we keep resisting medical advise we'll all be in her shoes soon.[i][/i]

About the instruments:
Guess I've been delinquent on posting that info, I'll do better on the next one.
I'm still rather new to BIAB, I usually use the drums and bass for my songs then fill the rest in with my own guitar etc.
I really have no idea what I'm doing, just hunt and peck till I get something that works.
On this one I used quiet a few BIAB instruments.

Drums- Real Drums, Nashville Even 16

Bass- #1603

Guitar - #1606

What some people think is a guitar is really a cello # 3261

Vocals # 6073

Nice gentle sound, good arrangement. To my ears, a bit too much reverb on everything, but not a big deal.

Like J&B said, the background vocals worked nicely.

I enjoyed listening. smile

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

Hi Captain,

A very nice melody and strong lyrics!
This certainly will stay an issue for some time. You put your finger on the sore spot when it comes to acceptance of these measures.
But above this all, I do like your vocals in the song!

Hans

Yep, it is kinda juicy.
Like I said, I was shooting for a U2 kinda sound.
I guess I forgot, I'm not them ha ha ha.

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.
