nice treatment of topical issue.
I really liked the change in the guitar background around the 2:00 mark. BGV's real nice. Guitar(s) all sounding great.
This would make a good PSA!
Hopefully we'll be out of this soon!

Hi Capn ...


This is a really cool song! Great vocals and a super arrangement. As mentioned, topical and a good message. I really enjoyed this! That b/g guitar around 2:00 gives new life to the song ... refreshing and an excellent choice.

Really nice work! Wishing you the best. Be safe ...

Alan

That vocal has a rain barrel tone to it.
Seems a nice arrangement but it's also a little polite.
Could use some beef.
Nice narrative.

I think I understand you comment about needing more beef and being polite.

Rain barrel is a new term to me.
I'm never happy with my vocals ( not a great singer for sure) but, I don't understand the rain barrel comment.
Please elaborate so that I might be able to address that.

Good tune.

I will not accept this as the "new normal" and refuse to wear a face covering.

BUT.... you did a good job on "covering" this topic from the other side.

Thanks for listening and providing your point of view.

It's obvious we disagree on what's the right thing to do to be a responsible citizen.

This is not the place for a debate on social responsibility so, I'll hold my comments on the subject.

Hi Moto.
I like a lot of this one. Melody and arrangement.
For me, there may be a little too much reverb on the instruments.

Captain,
A gently topical lyric, well sung and thoughtfully arranged;for my taste the spoken word section distracted a little-its on message though.

Thanks,
Guess it's a matter of taste and I can't question the taste of a listener.

Thanks for that,
I suppose I could have gone in a different direction.
I generally like to generate these songs in a short timeframe so
I usually go with what comes to mind in the moment.

Has the sound that suggests a long narrow space, like singing into a tunnel but smaller. You have a "halo" around your voice that makes it sound like it's in a different room to the music. IF you used the native BIAB preset reverb on the BIAB tracks that would be PART of the problem.

I'll have to go back and visit the effects I used.

Hello CaptainMoto,

Very pleasant composition. Simple but efficient arrangement. The lead guitar with its reverb is very pleasant. You used the biab voices in a well-organized way.

Best regard

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.
