Not a style of music that I would normally listen to - unless I was in a German Beer House. Then it's the only music required...

This is well done (to my ear). Mix is excellent. Nice use of claps and shouts, too.

Just about the right length to chug that stein. smile

I am not familiar with this kind of music but I have to say that I was stunned by how it mixes melancolic vibes and strenght! I really think that you captured perfectly the spirit of the people from that region! Very original and excellent mix ! Loved it!

Floyd, Torrey, Angelo..thanks for checking it out...it’s called “Klezmer” music and it is Eastern European music in a Jewish tradition.

Fun song - well done! Love the contrast between the two parts.

It's good to hear this kind of variety on the forum.

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

Hi Tano,

nothing ventured, nothing gained. Not the kind of music I know anything aout, but it sure sounds well-done to me!

Take care,

Stefan

What? Klezmer in a German beer house?

Yep,
music built around the piano accordion so not too old..a well tempered PA translates well. I reckon there'd have been some ace microtonal Klemzer in the button Accordion days. celebratory music but, as Crossroads/Stephan suggested, not likely in a beer hall...Adolf would've objected and the Brownshirts would have moved them on at the very least ensuring that the form held no roots in modern Germany.
It's making a comeback in it's trad form...Leonard Cohen occasionally used the style if not the full trad instrumentation. I don't know if he was descended from Ashkenazis or not.
Nice run through of the sounds of the style Tano man with a fun progression to follow.

Hello Tano Music,
It's good to have brought the accordion back to the fore. Furry must be delighted. It's very catchy music and it puts us in a good mood. Well done.

Kindly regard

Dero13, Stefan, David, Rayc...thanks....I was waiting for someone to point out that traditional Jewish folk music isn't likely to be found in a German beer-hall!! I constructed this by using the BIAB style, then searching for "klezmer midi" melody files, found a couple and then used them as the basis for the lead instruments in order to get the feel and scale structure that is typical.

Like I said, not music that I listen to.
But anything with a Polka Accordion in it sounds like Beer Music to me.
My bad.

Well done and very appealing.
Heard some klezmer music at a folk festival I went to some years ago.
This sounds nicely authentic.

Wow loved this. I had to google Klezmer-style music to see where it came from. This is very cool old European style music. When the song picks up makes you want to dance

Irrespective of the origin to us it sounds like some of the tracks
we've heard in German and Bavarian travelogs that we are fond of.

So, hey, it's cinematic!

The arrangement and use of BiaB along with your progressions
are excellent.

Janice said it gave her "happy feet." Always a good thing!

PG Music News
RealBand® Works Great in Windows® 11!

Here's an introductory look at RealBand® running on the preview version of Windows® 11!

Watch the video.

Customers LOVE Band-in-a-Box® 2021!

Check out some of the latest Band-in-a-Box® feedback we've received:

"There's a saying 'Give a man a fish, feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, feed him for a lifetime.' That's exactly what my friend did in 1990. He taught me how to use BIAB and I've used it hundreds of time to do arraignment and to jam with any style band."

"Love BIAB. I use it daily. Their support is great too!"

"RealTracks are amazing!!! I use BIAB for backtracks in my solo act... Still using the basic package and it's all need..."

"I have used Band in A Box for many years. If it would have been around when I was young, I would have been a much better musician. I use it for all my songs I have written and recorded. With Band In A Box I can sit in my room and sound like a whole band without having to put up with them!"

"If you know something about music and take the time to learn the program, you can make it do some amazing things. It is a great help to songwriters who want to demo their song without paying for studio time. It makes changes and tweaks much easier as well."

"Been using it for so many years. It's a great tool. The instruments that I don't have or play make up the void and it saves so much time. I use this program for every song I write."

"Great tool for the songwriter!"

"An essential part of my studio! I write songs on piano, but I'm not a pianist by a long way. BIAB is like having a roomful of session players in your studio, and just the simple act of taking your basic idea and hearing a skilled pianist play it presents so many new ideas and options you hadn't thought of."

"Powerful, easy to use, inexpensive and they even split the modest payments up if you want. No complaints. Lots of satisfaction."

"I added a steel guitar to a fully produced original. He followed every change like he was in the studio reading the chart. Fascinating technology!"

"I have used it to make backing tracks for six CD's with about 12 songs on each. They make a great gift!"

"It's simply a necessity - buy it now - the staff and support do a great job as well!"

"A great tool for us songwriters!"

"I LOVE Band-in-a-Box!"

"I see it as a very worthwhile investment. In fact, from initial purchase about 8 years ago, using the backing tracks I have made, my income from that investment has returned over 5,000% on the investment!"

continued...

Band-in-a-Box® - Boxing Clever - Sound on Sound #TBT

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® is more than 30 years old? I stumbled across this 1990 magazine article explaining the relatively new program, and think it's an enjoyable read for any Band-in-a-Box user - it really shows that we are always listening to user feedback when developing our program!

Read the article: Boxing Clever: Band-In-A-Box Software

A few of my favorite statements:

"The intention of PG Music's Band-In-A-Box package is to couple that speed and convenience with the improved flexibility of the personal computer. Versions are available for the Atari ST, Mac, and PC compatibles. Have the programmers succeeded? And can they rid themselves of the stigma of the auto-accompaniment section? Given the above state of affairs, the first hurdle that the program has to overcome is one of acceptance and, frankly, a name like 'Band-In-A-Box' is a bad start."

(I think our name was a great start!)

"The final results are, to say the least, impressive. Band-In-A-Box achieves something that most hardwired auto-accompaniment sections have never been able to do - inject a degree of feel into the music. It really does sound more human than so many of the computer generated pieces I've heard."

"...I'm quite convinced that PG Music will have a winner on their hands. This is one piece of software that you can get more out of than you put in."
