I guess she came home and caught you at it, cos all I get from the link is "Whoa, something went wrong and it wasn't supposed to happen."

Mix sounds good to me, pickin' is great!
Like the piano accompaniment, also the uptempo, then settling back down a bit.

Thanks for sharing.

Really, seriously! Tommy, that was some sick playing. The tone, the melodic phrasing. I could listen to that all day long!

Thanks Tommy for share your blues soul with us. We need it...
I'm wrong thinking you play a Fender guitar in Fender amp? Great sound ;-)

Rafa I play a Fender Strat, this time I used a Processor on a Fender Amp setting. I usually use my 1965 Vox amp, but it has so much noise it's hard to do a clean sound on. Thank you for listening!

Real nice, Cuz! You need a faster computer if it takes 11 minutes to convert a 3 minute song to mp3!

Enjoyed this one!

Band-in-a-Box 2015 per Windows è qui con oltre 50 nuove interessanti funzioni.

Abbiamo migliorato l'interfaccia grafica, con un migliore look, e molte nuove funzionali per risparmiare tempo come le etichette automatiche delle tracce (per esempio, invece di dire "Stringhe" si dice "Banjo"), pulsanti video-aiuto tutorial, anteprima istantanea per molti dialoghi, costruzione più veloce di brano /stile, un nuovo font per accordo RealScore scritto a mano e altro ancora. Abbiamo aggiunto il supporto diretto per i plugin a 64-bit VST (utilizzando jBridge, disponibile da noi).

Si può caricare, suonare, vedere e rallentare i video che hai già scaricato da YouTube o altrove in Band-in-a-Box, estraendo l'audio e rallentarlo con grande qualità audio, per imparare o sincronizzarlo nel foglio Accordi e più.
