Great White (Soundcloud link)

Great White
c.2017 Bob Buford

Fun little surf rock song inspired by Xtra Styles 3 PAK, POP Category, Bigwave.sty. I grew up loving the Ventures, Beach Boys and all the surf music, though I was totally landlocked and miles from anything resembling a surfable wave. Still those magical guitar sounds inspired me to work on my guitar chops way back then.

I used a Fender Subsonic Telecaster for the lead guitar run through a Johnson J Station set to a maxed-out vibrato preset. BIAB tracks were output to Reaper and guitar added along with the scary buoy bell. Swim faster!
Some fun, boy!

Enjoy,
Bob

Sharks definitely know how to survive. I'd be surprised if humans make it on the planet for those many millions of years. I love shark movies and specials. Awesome, powerful creatures, eh?

I enjoyed this Bob. You snared me with the intro... very creative. Then that great driving melody kept my attention all the way. Nice playing!

All the best with the contest smile

Great song, but the cymbals sound way to harsh to me.

We receive user feedback many ways, including our Facebook page, by email or phone, using the Comments tab on our Band-in-a-Box® pages, the My Favorite Things Forum, and more!

Like the great feedback recently posted by Al-David:
"I write and play in quite a few different genres. The flexibility BIAB gives me makes transpositions, from one genre to another, so easy and quick. A number of times I've created a piece, intending it to be a Smooth Jazz or Smooth RnB song. But when I generated the song, it just didn't work in the intended genre.

With a simple click of the Style Picker ... BAM! The song ended up as a pretty decent Pop song. I only had to replace a couple of instruments from the new style and alter a couple of chords..."
(read the full thread here.)

Post your feedback to our Forum - My Favorite Things - we'd love to hear it!
