Haven't created a new song for awhile as I had been revisiting and remixing my older songs. So decided to have a go at a new one.

I found this when auditioning styles for the new chord progressions. It is the Joni style. It was an older style and most of the tracks were midi. I took the midi tracks and used the BBC and Labs plugins on the midi files. I used some a couple of different Real Drum tracks and Acoustic Real tracks. Flipped the key of the song a couple of times and add this melody.

Hans had mentioned he had used a talk box on one of his songs so I found a talking wah effect on one of my H9's and used it with my lap steel.

Hi Scott,

Thanks for the listen.

You have some very tasty guitar sounds on this song plus a haunting melody.

Well done.

I instantly started tapping my toes to the beat. This could be a soundtrack to an old Clint Eastwood spaghetti western. Appropriately dark guitar playing. I like it. Nice style the band churned up.

Hi Scott,

I miss that Talk box...

But seriously, since I know all about movies, I agree with Jptjptjpt your song could be a soundtrack in a (remake of old) Clint Eastwood movie.
You played that lead guitar so well in it. There comes a day we both make a song!
But yours I enjoyed!

Hans

Scott.
lovely guitar tones and nice sound pictures.

if i can make one comment, from a production standpoint..
the way i hear it is i hear this genre very very light on the drums.
imho it will stand on its own EXTREMELY WELL with subtle/occasional drum strikes...
cos its tres en francais "cinematique".
maybe just little drum pictures here and there.
you obviously have a great talent for instrumentals...

and i would love to hear what you might do with shadows style instrumentals.

great effort. bestest

Ah, back when I was homeless I only had a bass, a stereo, and 6 albums --3 Joni Mitchell and 3 Harry Nilsson. Man, it would've been great to have you visit. Such amazing tone and taste in your playing. Beautiful melodies soaring seamlessly in and around the music. Very creative and engaging.

Haha. Clouds, Song To A Seagull and Ladies Of The Canyon --that's all she had then. Harry's were Harry, Aerial Ballet and Nilsson Sings Newman. Many fun stories from back then.

You've excellent taste in Nilsson based on those three. I have and love them NSN is sublime...it's the one that appears in my mind most often of the many HN LPs.

Nicely done, Scott!

Love the melody and tone you used. Lap steel sounds good too, very creative the way you used it.

Enjoyed wink

Hi Scott.

Another fine creation to add to your songbook.

I love the tone of your guitar and your playing is immensely lyrical. It's so easy to sit back and listen to this.

I enjoyed letting your music create images in my mind.

Thank you,
Noel

Band-in-a-Box® File Associations

You may have noticed when you were installing Band-in-a-Box® for Windows that you were asked if you would like to Associate Band-in-a-Box songs and styles with Band-in-a-Box? But, what does that mean?

It's actually pretty simple - basically, if you select this option while you're installing the program, files with the extensions .SGU, .MGU, and other Band-in-a-Box files will open directly in the program if you select them from outside the program.

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.
