This is one that serves two purposes, It's a testimony of what Jesus did for me, this year, and the church that I go to is called New Life Apostolic Tabernacle, so the name is fitting with the church.
Plus, it felt good to get the fingers limbered up on the lead guitar!!

I've Got A New Life

https://soundcloud.com/ronniefields/ive-got-a-new-life

Chorus:

I've got a new life since Jesus saved my soul,
I've got a new life since he cleansed and made me whole.
Satan is mad because he knows he cannot win,
since Jesus came and gave me new life again.

The devil thought he had me lying in that hospital bed,
he said, Man, I got you guess what, your dead.
But Jesus came in and said, this cannot be,
because you see old slew foot, he's coming back with me.

I've got a new life since Jesus saved my soul,
I've got a new life since he cleansed and made me whole.
Satan is mad because he knows he cannot win,
since Jesus came and gave me new life again.

I've got a new life since Jesus saved my soul,
I've got a new life since he cleansed and made me whole.
Satan is mad because he knows he cannot win,
since Jesus came and gave me new life again.

Loved it Ronnie! Nice to hear you playing some guitar with some great licks! That organ in there also really gives the song that little bit extra! Thanks, Torrey

Hi Ronnie,

I like your new shuffle - very catchy.

Vocals - as previously mentioned, you could benefit from some effects to put your voice in the "same room" as the backing band. Specifically:

EQ - Roll off the bass.
Reverb - a good dollop.

Mix - all sounds fine but there is a huge spike at 32 seconds which needs to be removed.

Look forward to hearing a remix.

Best Regards
Nigel

Enjoyed the song and the tasty guitar licks.

I agree with Nigel that the vocal could probably do with a bit of work to place it in the same space.

The term "slew foot" is a new one for me, so you made me learn something, too! wink

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

Gospel at its absolute best!

Great song! Super lyrics and backing tracks; you can't go wrong with a B3 and guitar!

Super chops man!

I agree about the vocals. In a song like this I would put a slap back delay on it to make it sound more like the singers of the 50s. YMMV

Nice gospel Ronnie and your performances on vocals and guitar really drive it.

Enjoyed it.

Hi Ronnie,

I enjoyed listening to your song a lot...great stuff! I have to agree with some of the other people commenting... your vocal sounds a bit like it is recorded in another room (which it of course is, but reverb and eq can help a lot with fixing that so we all get the feeling that you are in the same space/room as the band).

Anyway, I am looking forward to hear more from you!
Will

Ronnie,

This is a toe-tapping blues tune. Like the write a lot, particularly that “old slew foot” reference. The lead solo is slick. Production wise my only nit is the very beginning of the song, which dives right into the thick of it, without much introduction. But it’s just a nit. And, yes, the vocal could come forward, a bit more crystal—but the song has heart and resonates. Nicely done!

All my best to you,

Deej

Pretty nifty little tune you have there Ronnie!
It kinda has an old Ray Charles feel. Great song to wake up the church!

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.
