Hello!, we went to an Irish restaurant a couple of weeks ago where they had a band playing Irish tunes of course. It kind of made me create a tune with that style, so here is: Green Hills

Your song does indeed have a nice Irish feel to it.
I would probably remove the drums and just use the Bodhrán to make it sound even more Irish, but that's just my personal taste, because I play Bodhrán once in a while when I relax.

I'm 40% Irish and I'm not even 1% offended by "Green Hills." It's lively; spirited, even. Makes you want to get up and dance.


My music may not set the world on fire but if it causes a glow in just one person's heart, it has all been worthwhile smile

The wee bit of Irish in me said this is a fantastic Irish song.

Note that is the real wit bit of Irish in me and not the Mediterranean Irish that makes up most of my heritage wink

Nice to hear you still sound so good in a different place, Mike. You know I thoroughly enjoy the smokey atmosphere where I hear most of your cool productions. This was a breath of Irish spring that had a special dancing quality. Do you like Greek food? You should do a whole European tour of restaurants with a new song from each, and call the opus European Seasonings. Excellent dish to start.


Enjoy whatever happens!

Mike,

As a person who has Irish blood and genealogical descent! I can say you did right by the folks across the pond! This highly energetic piece is a joy to listen to! Excellent work!

Thanks, TB

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

Thanks Torrey and David for your comments. Marty, as a matter of fact, I have done different pieces from different countries which BTW, comes to a very "a propos" with your suggestion. I'll be posting those in a separate posts although I have done so a long time ago.

Cheers.

Hi Mike ...

Really nice! I particularly loved the flute. They can be so difficult to work with sometimes. But you scripted it perfectly.

No Irish in me until getting to the very early 1800s - my great-grandmother was a Stephenson, whose lineage goes back to Ireland. I'm mostly Welsh & German. Regardless of all that, this was a most enjoyable listen that had my toes tapping all along. A very nice change from your typical soft, smooth and mellow. Very entertaining!

Thanks Scott and Alan for the comments. Yes, it was a new and fun experience for me. I definitely don't have any Irish on me, more like Mediterranean, but I love their music.
Thanks for listening.

The Band-in-a-Box® Flash Drive Backup Option

Today (April 5) is National Flash Drive Day!

Did you know... not only can you download your Band-in-a-Box® Pro, MegaPAK, or PlusPAK purchase - you can also choose to add a flash drive backup copy with the installation files for only $15? It even comes with a Band-in-a-Box® keychain!

For the larger Band-in-a-Box® packages (UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, Audiophile Edition), the hard drive backup copy is available for only $25. This will include a preinstalled and ready to use program, along with your installation files.

Backup copies are offered during the checkout process on our website.

Already purchased your e-delivery version, and now you wish you had a backup copy? It's not too late! If your purchase was for the current version of Band-in-a-Box®, you can still reach out to our team directly to place your backup copy order!

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first? If your flash drive (or other USB plug) doesn't have a symbol to indicate which way is up, look for the side with a seam on the metal connector (it only has a line across one side) - that's the side that either faces down or to the left, depending on your port placement.

Band-in-a-Box® 2024 Review: 4.75 out of 5 Stars!

If you're looking for a in-depth review of the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows version, you'll definitely find it with Sound-Guy's latest review, Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows Review: Incredible new capabilities to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs.

A few excerpts:
"The Tracks view is possibly the single most powerful addition in 2024 and opens up a new way to edit and generate accompaniments. Combined with the new MultiPicker Library Window, it makes BIAB nearly perfect as an 'intelligent' composer/arranger program."

"MIDI SuperTracks partial generation showing six variations – each time the section is generated it can be instantly auditioned, re-generated or backed out to a previous generation – and you can do this with any track type. This is MAJOR! This takes musical experimentation and honing an arrangement to a new level, and faster than ever."

"Band in a Box continues to be an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs, as well as an extensive educational resource. It is huge, with hundreds of functions, more than any one person is likely to ever use. Yet, so is any DAW that I have used. BIAB can do some things that no DAW does, and this year BIAB has more DAW-like functions than ever."
