Just going to leave this here.

Working on a big project, so no time to write music or even visit here to listen, of late :-( Today, I "threw a tantrum", stopped working for the day and wrote this instead. I hope it was worth it ;-) - thanks for listening, all comments welcome.

I think you have good bones here, nice track, good progression.

Just needs a melodic element on top and you are good to go I think.

I agree with Dave, James... (which is usually the case).

A nice track James, with some hooky changes, a very enjoyable listen.

Well, a melody, some words and a voice BUT it's a backing worth the effort.
You've made installment one.
next tantrum you can knock over one of the remaining tasks.
And proceed toward completion step by step.

Hello James ...

First, I hope your project proves successful and fruitful.

A very nice, relaxing tune with a great foundation. Love the chord progression ... exciting for such a pretty song! You use BIAB quite well!

Wishing you the very best. Take care and please be safe ...

Alan

Hello musician17,

Very relaxing soundtrack creating a pleasant atmosphere. A small melodic line would have been well received but it is already very well done like that.

Kindly regard

Nicely done smile Very calming and easy on the ears, which I liked. Definitely gives off a soundtrack-esque vibe. Thanks for sharing!

Thanks everybody - very kind of you to listen. Yes, it needs polishing (as Ray says, a melody, voice and words) - but yes, my next "tantrum" should hopefully push me towards that! Thanks for the encouraging words - it helps to know that this is worth polishing!

Tobin does a great job of showing just how easy it is to create a song with Band-in-a-Box!

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.
