Hi Ghostgum,

Pleasant composition. I like the rhythm and the sequence of chords. The lead guitar well played and the appearance of the harmonica has all its charm. Well done

Kindly regard

That is a nice blend of RT's and your performances.

Sounds like a group of folks who've been sitting in together for a while.

Great playing and we much liked the mix. Acoustic mixes can be a challenge ... this is a good one!

Outstanding!

One of the best instrumentals on the forums.

Excellently played on all instruments. Super backing tracks.

This could have been the theme song of one of those spaghetti westerns!

Thanks for your comments, Mario. There's something about these BIAB tracks that is inspirational. It make the process of creating melodies, counter-melodies, harmonies and incidental phrases so much easier than simply using midi.

What they said!

Nice melody, excellent playing, interesting arrangement.

Good work on the guitars and harmonica as well.

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

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.
