Ale Haus

As I was enjoying a Leinenkiugel's Octoberfest I was searching through Band-in-a-Box's styles when I came upon a style named Ale House. You know that I had to write a song using it.

BiaB style = Ale House MIDI Americana Ballad
Tempo = 60 BPM

I deleted the bass
Piano - Keyzone - Classic Rhodes Piano
Guitar - Velvet - 01 MKI piano
Strings - FM8 - Soft E piano
Drums and percussion - various Steven Slate's SSD 5 and Kontakt drums/percussion

I am playing my guitar, fretless bass, and my wind controller (Ocarina).

As usual let me know what you think, good or bad.

Mario,

Love this style and what you did with it. I really like the wind controller parts in this song - that sound really takes center stage.

Excellent!

Bob

Hey Mario ...

Really cool song! Everything compliments everything else. I wouldn't know a wind controller if it kicked me in the butt! But it sure sounds good. Only thing I might suggest is the guitar parts could come a little more forward in the mix. It sounds great and should be on the sanme level with the wind controller. Much enjoyed!

Alan

When I read you were enjoying a Leinenkugel Oktoberfest, I thought I was going to hear an oompah band composition laugh.

That ocarina has a unique sound. I had to look up the instrument to see what it is. Quite curious looking.

Pleasant piece of music.

Very nice, Mario! Love the feel.

Ocarina is cool. I think the only song I can think of off the top of my head that used one is Wild Thing by the Troggs wink

Guitar work is lovely.

Nice composition, enjoyed!

You really are a lot of fun, Mario. Very creative indeed. You have that fretless sounding like a big-box upright. Perfect. Cool lilting guitar. Ocarina? Yeah, perfect choice. [and a special thanks to Dave for the Wild Thing memory. hehe]

Mario,
Cool tune, and a nice way it progresses. Ocarina sounds great! Listens well, but I will echo Alan's note about guitar being more forward. Thank you for sharing.

Misha.

People who play videogames know The Ocarina of Time. ALso, they are often sold at renaissance faires. Guitar and ocarina were both great! Liked the drums, too. Well done.

The ocarina has a nice human whistle fell to it...I enjoyed that and the rest.
Nice work.

So beautiful. Amazing chord changes and a storytelling-like feel from the ocarina. You are telling a story, through this track, that (because it is wordless) remains elusive from us. I prefer some things to remain elusive, at times, so I really, really enjoyed this journey you've taken us on. Thanks!

Mario,

Your wind controlled Ocarina is cool.
The chord progression of the part played with guitar is very nice.
Very creative indeed.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

Mario, any song with beer as its starting point has got to be golden. For someone who usually seems "lager" than life, you've turned out a nice, quiet, reflective gem here.
Prost,
Mike
