Eric, this was a fantastic listen. It reminded me jazz from the 60's.

This does have a real live feel. Super job on the mix. Great job on that lead. The guitar's tone is nice and brought the song into today's world. It you had used a more mellow tone like maybe Wes Montgomery or Johnny Smith the song would have stayed in the 60's. I'm not complaining just making an observation.

This is a fantastic song.

This song had a really great feel to it which I really appreciate, and I especially liked the RealTrack arrangement usage as well. Thanks for sharing!

Hi Eric,

Very nice throughout - both the Sax and your Guitar are very tasty. Your Guitar work sounds like my hero Carlos Santana playing Jazz - wonderful.

Best Regards
Nigel

I kept waiting for you to come in...all tease for the 1st two minutes Eric!
The song made more sense when you started playing... the sax was nice but wasn't "interesting".
You playing, tone & choices make your guitar work interesting.

Eric,

that's a really cool one - closed my eays and was immediately taken back to that old smokey jazz club I used to go to .. ah ... 45 years ago.

Really enjoyable and so well-done!

Love it.

Cheers,

Stefan

Eric,
Smooth tune. Nice, laid back guitar. Now you need to add some smoky, free flowing female vocals to it smile Good mix.
Thank you for sharing.

Misha.

Sounds great Eric, as per usual.

I agree with Ray, I think you should have brought the guitar in sooner, or maybe even started off with the guitar.

Nothing wrong with the sax guy, but I dig your playing more.

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.
