Hi All.

Just a bit of lockdown-madness-inspired Rock from me and Eddie - it's probably about 50-50.
The file crossed the Atlantic more times than British Airways has done recently and I've
lost track of what's in there. There are a couple of RT keyboards which Eddie added, an
acoustic RT buried in there somewhere, and the other guitars are mine. Interestingly, the drum
samples this time are from a 1980s Simmons kit which a friend had - Simmons were used on almost
every rock track in the 80s.

Eddie's singing the lead and I'm on the BVs. There's not much to the lyrics which are a bit banal
anyway, but if you can't make them out I'll list them later. In case there was any doubt, this
is a song about a car journey.

BETTER CALL YOUR MAMA

Don't take it too seriously - we didn't.

ROG & Eddie,
I turned up the spoken word intro and the drums crashing have damaged my drums!
Very good rollicking fun- loose backing with great guitar breaks cutting in.
Fit to purpose gents; well done.

A HUGE sound. Really filling my speakers. And nicely spread.

Excellent mix. The piano sits nicely. The guitar loud and proud.

Good groove. Good job.

That was my homage to Jim Steinman! LOL!!! The initial intro went on for 2 minutes longer!

ROG & Eddie ,,,

Just so dang cool! I love this stuff! To my ears, it has somewhat of an early Garage Band feel. I like how the music is spread horizontally across the spectrum. It fills the space completely without the slightest hint of clutter.

A great, fun-filled journey that put a big smile on this face. totally loved it!

Best to both of you. Be safe, wherever you are ...

Alan

Lots of fun, and don't we all need a bit of fun these days?

Guitars sound great, as does the mix.

Well done!

Hi Robert,
I do hope your eardrums are recovering now!
Many thanks for the listen and review.
"Rollicking" is great - I couldn't ask for more.
Cheers,
ROG.

Hi Floyd,
Always pleased to get a review from you - many thanks.
Glad you approved, particularly about the "groove" which I'm
always searching for!

Enjoyed it...well after we put the monitors back on the shelf!

Those trans Atlantic travels resulted in a lot of good ole rock 'n roll with a mega fun factor.

Well done y'all!

And the irony is that we will likely never meet! Maybe the distance is WHY we work well together. When I work with people locally they get on my &@^%#$% nerves by the end of the second session.

Yes, it's a team which has stood the test of time. I think it's because Eddie is such a
quiet, unassuming sort of guy, who's so easy to work with.

Band-in-a-Box® File Associations

You may have noticed when you were installing Band-in-a-Box® for Windows that you were asked if you would like to Associate Band-in-a-Box songs and styles with Band-in-a-Box? But, what does that mean?

It's actually pretty simple - basically, if you select this option while you're installing the program, files with the extensions .SGU, .MGU, and other Band-in-a-Box files will open directly in the program if you select them from outside the program.

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.
