https://soundcloud.com/bruce-boome/blues-for-jenny I've just got a new T type guitar built for my by Durban luthier Shawn O'Neill, and put together a bog standard blues backing at 65 bpm and recorded straight into BIAB.

Very nice Bruce. Is that guitar direct in? (that's what I'm guessing) I'd be interested in your signal path.


I love the sound of Blues in the morning. Sounds like....victory.



Regards,


Bob

Hi Bruce,

I'm not a guitar player so I can't comment on the too much in relation to the instrument. In the regard to the music though, it was great to listen to, the sound was excellent and it seemed like you were having a whole heap of fun playing. I thought this was a very tasteful work.

Regards,
Noel

Hi Bruce,

nice guitar.
I suggest to mute the pre-count and the noise at
the beginning and end.
Liked listening though.

I used Pod Farm, a patch I wrote (very quickly ;-) ) using 2 emulations of Fender amps. From there I went straight into record from BIAB. There's absolutely no editing, I didn't even balance the tracks- which is unusual for someone as obsessive as I am. I then exported it as an mp3.

Thanks Guenter. I wanted to get something out quickly. There's absolutely no editing, the BIAB track took about 40 seconds to make, and I played with the track till I was comfortable with it and then recorded. All I really wanted to do was demo the guitar.

Bruce,
here are my thoughts about your song:

1) I really like the fact that the tone on your guitar is such a good match for the tone of the backing tracks guitar. This makes your part fit contextually, as though you recorded the whole song with the same guitar

2) yeah, ditch the count-in

3) The sheer abundance of instrumental blues makes it hard to present such a song in a way that stands out. Usually instrumental blues come across as a mindless jam that got thrown together in one take and without any planning. (My subjective opinion) The addition of lyrics would have made it more like a composition and less like a jam.

4) nice blues licks!

Thanks everyone for taking the time to comment, I really appreciate it. @ Pat: I agree with what you wrote about mindless blues jams, and actually that's exactly what my post was ;-) I wasn't really putting it out there as a tune per se, but a demo of my new Telecaster clone. I just went through the pickup combinations and played from smooth to raging. After the recording, I thought it nice enough to please people who like blues, and in that sense I've had the feedback I wanted.

I hope my comment didn't come across as a criticism. You had prefaced your post with the information that you had recorded the song as a quick demo, and as such it works quite well. I love the sound of Fender electrics. Some day I'll have a tellie, but for today I'll take pleasure in listening to yours.

Our "Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows®! New Features, RealTracks, and other content!" video is now ready! Get to know all about the newest features in Band-in-a-Box® 2019: Click here to watch...

We have listed a table of contents for this video, you'll see it within the YouTube video description, or by visiting this forum post.

RealBand 2019 - A New Look!

Have you opened up your RealBand 2019 yet? You may notice that we've given it a fresh new look! In fact, there are now 3 different looks to RealBand.

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows - Choosing to Run 64-bit or 32-bit

We heard you! With the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows we've included the BRAND NEW 64-bit version of Band-in-a-Box®, which works well with the latest plugins and 64-bit OS features! Because not everyone has a 64-bit computer, we include both the 64-bit and 32-bit versions with your purchase - you choose which one to use!

By default, when you install your Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows the 32-bit version will run.

The steps to run the 64-bit version are simple! Just head to your "bb" folder and choose the "bbw64" icon - you'll notice that the Band-in-a-Box® "splash screen" will state "64-bit" as the program opens.
(and if you open the 32-bit version, the "splash screen" will state "32-bit")

Still not certain which version you're running? Within the program, go to Help | About Band-in-a-Box - it'll either state:

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2019 (604)
<--- the number in brackets is the build number - this will change as new patch updates are released
64 bit application

or:

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2019 (604)
<--- the number in brackets is the build number - this will change as new patch updates are released
32 bit application

We hope everyone who can is enjoying their Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit version for Windows!

NEW! Style-style-style Additions and Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows!

With over 64 new features and enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019, we've made sure to add to, enhance, and update some of the Style features within the program: StylePicker, StyleMaker, and Song Titles browser within the StylePicker!

StylePicker Enhancements:
-If the style list needs rebuild, it tells you that within the StylePicker, instead of a message that requires a response.
-The rebuild is faster than before by 75%. It takes 1/4 of the time now.
-While the style list is being rebuilt, you can see the progress inside the StylePicker.
-The style list can be filtered by a specific RealTracks/RealDrums/MIDI SuperTracks or RealTracks/MIDI SuperTracks in a certain number range.
-You can filter the style list by a specific Xtra Styles PAK.
-The dialog to select an Xtra Styles PAK has a button to take you to the PG Music website that shows information about Xtra Styles PAKs.
-The StylePicker can list all styles (including N/A styles) in the default display.
-The Set number display is improved, including sort by type and Xtra styles.

StyleMaker Improvements:

-The new MIDI velocity offset allows you to make styles with altered loudness for MIDI tracks.
-Styles can be saved with information like a memo, examples, genres, and more, which will be displayed in the StylePicker.
-You can import information from another style. This is useful when you are making a similar style.
-A style can have a huge number of RealTracks (up to 70!) because the StyleMaker now supports RealTracks multi/medley feature, which allows a single track to have up to 10 simultaneous playing of RealTracks.

Song Titles Browser Enhancement

-We’ve added 300 more song titles including requests from users, so there are now over 10,600 titles.
-The chord density filter is available, and it’s also displayed in the memo.
-The chord complexity filter is available.
