I did this cover of "Listen to the music" sometime back and have posted it on YouTube and linked to this forum mainly as a demonstration that guitar and other instrumental riffs can accurately and authentically be replicated using techniques and features available in the BIAB program such as midi and audio recording. Enjoy.

Very impressive Charlie, thanks.

Can you advise what tracks / style was used?

I didn't think I would be able to find anything because when I did this project was prior to the loosening of restrictions for covers and we could post songs from YouTube. I don't normally preserve a project that I will likely never have reason to use again. But I found the original seq and sgu files on a backup drive. That's some good luck.

I originally did this project 11/15/2014 and the style I started with was _M16SPNO.STY. Worship Pop w/ Piano.
That is the date that Windows Explorer show all the associated files being last modified including the original sgu file but I would not have guessed it was that long ago. But that is the best date I have anything documented for.

I played the seq file and it is the same as what is posted.

Here is the memo from the seq file:

****** Song Summary *************
Title: Listen To The Music
File:Listen To The Music.SGU
Key=D , Tempo 106, Length (m:s)=3:46
No intro. 98 bar chorus, from bar 1 to bar 98. Repeat x1 chorus
No Melody
No Soloist track.
Song is saved with Volume, Pan, Reverb, Chorus, Bank0,
Style is _M16SPNO.STY (Med.Pop 16ths with Piano [110RS])

RealTracks in style: 1174:Bass, Electric, PopClypso Ev 100
RealTracks in style: 1689:B3 Organ Background Ev 085
RealTracks in style: 1606:Guitar, Acoustic, Strumming Pop16ths Ev16 110
RealTracks in style: 1608:Guitar, High-Strung Acoustic, Rhythm Pop16ths Ev16 110
RealDrums in style: NashvilleEven16^5-a:Snare, HiHat , b:Snare, Ride

There is an additional audio track of the guitar riff.

What a great cover, Charlie. That's one of my favorite Doobie Brothers songs and one I had been wanting to tackle. I'll take a look at that style.

Nice job, Charlie!

I can hear the vocal in my head as I'm listening to your track. Rhythm guitar in particular is perfect.

nice job Charlie! Especially thanks for posting the tracks used!
Did you play any of that yourself? (Your original post said something about audio recording...)

And you mention something about restrictions being lifted regarding the posting of cover songs... I must have missed that... is it true that we can post covers here now?

Good morning Pat.

I did this project for a friend's personal use several years ago and all of the tracks are BIAB real tracks except for the pre-recorded signature rhythm riff made available to me that was recorded by a guitarist that could play it in a more professional sound that I could.

Regarding restrictions, they have not changed for here on the BIAB forum but what is now allowed are postings in this thread of covers that are on YouTube. The short answer is yes, if the cover is on YouTube and was done with the use of BIAB.

I uploaded this project to YouTube and posted the link here and linked to this post in another thread here on the forum as a reference during a discussion that accurate covers could not be achieved using BIAB.

That song takes me back to another time, another place, another mindset, and people & friends I'll never see again.

Thanks man. Great sound and great cover.

BTW, I immediately found this file and saved it to desktop as let me see...

DOOBIE BROTHERS

New song coming!!!

Man, one thing that has always bothered me. I have been trying to figure out what the Doobie in Doobie brothers was referring to for decades.

I wonder if I will ever know? Is it just one of those things that must forever remain a mystery?????

Thanks for listening and I'm guessing your 'new song coming' may take a poke answering to what the 'Doobie' in Doobie Brothers means?? ;=0

Good job Charlie but bump up the drums. Note the key here is finding someone to play the signature lick. That's always the problem with trying to create good covers in Biab.

A Doobie is/was a joint. A joint is what's now legal in 9 states for folks who may not know. At the time the name Doobie Brothers was quite the flower power/counter culture/antiwar joke...

I was going to post a YT link to a good backing track just to use as a comparison. I found many different ones then I found this:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZF_YmaI6qSQ

This is amazing. Who is this guy who posted this? It really sounds like he has access to the original studio tracks especially when the vocals comes in. If he someway somehow created this himself, how the heck did he do it? Where did he get those clean vocals?

There's a fellow named Terry Jackson that claims to have access to the original studio tracks for this song and many others.

The multi-tracks may be a by product of guitar video games like Guitar Hero or Rocksmith. Many familiar songs were remixed in multi-track format so gamers could play their favorite instrument on their game controller.

There is also a +++ Wikipedia Article +++ that lists some albums and songs that have been released as stems.
