Re: Mean Baby Blues Al-David 40 minutes ago Forum: User Showcase Jump to new postsJump to new posts
HI Nigel, I always smile when I see a new one from you. Love the Swing Shuffle Blues! And this is a great example of it. Loved the key modulation - they always seem to refresh a song bring new energy to it. You have the perfect voice for these old standards (yes, I realize this is a new write, but it captures that era so perfectly). As usual, excellent entertainment. Loved it! Take care, Alan

Re: Ease My Weary Mind, live busking, original tune Al-David 45 minutes ago Forum: User Showcase Jump to new postsJump to new posts
Hi Donny, This has a Smooth RnB sound with a Latin influence. In my book, that's a great combination. All the BG tracks sit where they should, and the vocal is smooth! The LP sounds fine to me. When I was playing 18 - 22 shows per month (which I did for 7 or 8 years), they were just too heavy. I had a '54 Tele and two arch-top Gibsons (A DC150 and an ES175). I don't use a DAW, either. Audacity takes care of my needs. Some folks say it's almost a basic DAW. It's getting there! Lots to like about this one. Thanks for the listening pleasure! And it truly was a pleasure. Alan

Re: Slow Walking Al-David 1 hour ago Forum: User Showcase Jump to new postsJump to new posts
HI Mario, 1963 is when I made my first dollar (actually $8.00) playing out professionally. There was a Holiday Inn about three miles from my home and they had a one-man band ( a gentleman named Mike) and he was really good. I couldn't get in the lounge then as I was only 16 years old. But I could hear the music from the lobby. Thanks for a great memory! This is a gorgeous production! Everything is so suave and soothing. That sax just defines the ambiance so nicely. This is one of my favorites from you in quite some time - excellent! You aced it! Take care, Alan

Re: No boundaries Al-David 1 hour ago Forum: User Showcase Jump to new postsJump to new posts
Hi Mike, I always like your music. No exception here. A very nice tune - softly funky and smooth The only thing I noticed is the acoustic piano is playing a swing melody to an even-based composition. Thus, sometimes it seemed a little off. But everything else is stellar and very enjoyable. I really enjoyed the guitar lead! Take care. Alan

Re: Blimey!!! What am I doing???? Al-David 1 hour ago Forum: User Showcase Jump to new postsJump to new posts
Hi John, Welcome to the PG Music Forums Community. Good to have you in our midst. I've been here about 12 or 13 years and have had no disappointments. My music creation and production has improved immensely with much credit to this forum and its kind and helpful members. I agree with all that's already been said. I'd slide it into that early to mid '6os rock era. Although I played Country music all my life, I'm a big fan of '60s Pop Rock music, Jazz, and Latin. I think Van Morrison and The Animals are good references. Yet, you retained your own signature to the song. I enjoyed my listen very much. Look forward to more music from you. Take care until next time, Alan

Re: Melody Based Solos makingmelody 3 hours ago Forum: Beginners Forum Jump to new postsJump to new posts
I think @Brille is right - you'll want to use the "Melody Influenced Solos" option rather than "Around Melody" to get a solo that sticks closer to the actual melody of "Mood Indigo". Check out pages 216-217 of the manual for how to set that up.

And you can not use the transposition in the GUI for only a part of the chart. I agree "we don't know the rules". which is why I have never been comfortable with doing this in BIAB.

Love the buildup intro. Richly textured sound with the instrumentation. That cold ending works well with your inspiration. We are not immune from that happening here. We can't get complacent.

Well done Floyd, we guess all's been said. Rob is particularly interested in the guitar in the beginning of the intro. Is it one of the Kontakt tracks? Rob and Anne-Marie

Hi Janne, Over here spring has already started grin The Dizy flute works really well in the song's intro. Looks like at 0.37 V JUN has a little error... The chorus of the song really stands out with the cool harmony vocal. Great Rock solo at the end. And darn! Are those synth voices getting better all the time. Rob and Anne-Marie

Re: THIS OLD TOWN RnAM Yesterday at 10:41 PM Forum: User Showcase Jump to new postsJump to new posts
Good work Torey. We particularly like the smooth blending of the harmony vocals in the chorus. The song also has a gentle "New Kid in Town" feel. That's a good thing because "New Kid in Town" is one of our all-time favourites. So it's really easy to like your song laugh Rob and Anne-Marie

Dewey, really tight write, with plenty of hooks and energetic vocals. Cool harmonies, too. To me, this song is all about the vocals, and the band does a nice job staying out of the way. Super job!

I first read the subject line to include "A.I. and Tommy" and wondered whether I should be afraid. Ha! Oh...ALAN and Tommy. Well, THAT's not scary at all. Well, scary GOOD maybe. smile Great job you guys! Just an achingly beautiful tune. Sounds just as good as I would expect from the two of you. And yes, that steel is very cool indeed.
