I LOVE YOU COMCASTICALLY
https://soundcloud.com/mister-gilley/i-love-you-comcastically

The basic tracks are PG’s bossa realstyle B140TB. I don’t think I used the included Trombone track, but it gave me the idea to add some trumpet here and there when I imported the tracks into Logic Pro. There’s also an alto sax way low under the trumpet. I added some strings from another PG style, and some vocal “aahs” to the bridge. The midi tracks (trumpet, sax, ahhs) were all done on a Ketron SD2. There are no special plug ins, etc., other than compressions, reverb, etc. that included with Logic Pro 9.

All comments appreciated.

Gilley:

This song is GREAT. Lyrics, mood, use of BIAB, etc. Really nicely done.

You should definitely do a Music Video of this for youtube. I think it would add even more to the humor.

Welcome to the forum, and by all means do a video for this tune.

Very enjoyable!

Mr Gilley

This is really excellent, the style choice works absolutely great, and the vocals phrasing is really well done. The bridge fits nicely.

I really enjoyed listening

Hi Gilley,

very enjoyable.
If only I knew what 'comcastically' means.
(The word you've entered isn't in the dictionary).

For its genre it's a nice song, I tend to like rock over jazz\country so it's a bit hard for me to comment to much

Gilley,

Very clever and well done. The "antenna/and then a" rhyme was brilliant.

You have to be on Comcast Cable to know what he is talking about. It's a love/hate relationship. Very good!!! occ

Sound-Guy has been using Band-in-a-Box® for many, many, many, many, many years - and we still managed to surprise him with some great new features! Read his latest review to learn more about his favorite additions for 2020!

"Band-in-a-Box continues to evolve as an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to produce not only new compositions and arrangements, but also perform them with excellent musical “talent”. It also provides educational and training tools for keyboardists and guitarists. It’s easy to use the basic functions, and challenging enough to keep you occupied for years. BIAB provides education, inspiration, a “live” band to aid in practicing, and anything from backing tracks to full performances for recording."
-Sound-Guy, www.gearslutz.com

Band-in-a-Box® user Henry Clarke creates a lot of great songs with Band-in-a-Box®, and he's shared his steps for creating the shots/chops within his recent song Lonely in a Crowd.

Review - Loops-with-Style PAK 2 for Band-in-a-Box® 2020

"Dr. Dave" Walker is at it again! You may remember his recent reviews of both Band-in-a-Box 2020 for Mac and Xtra Styles PAK 9 - now he has something to say about our Loops-with-Style PAK 2 - check it out: Click here to read...

With money being tight for most musicians, this is a wonderful gift for those on a limited budget. At $29, it offers months and years of fun and experimentation, bringing many ideas to fruition as songs with enough variation so that your audience doesn’t jump to "aw, that's a computer!" while still keeping the power of the software in your hands.
-"Dr. Dave" Walker

Thank you again Dr. Dave for the great review!

I set up an eight bar progression with some simple pushes, shots, holds, and rests for reference. Then I started auditioning styles--Three hours later, I am invigorated, inspired, and just plain smiling big. Really CHOICE! From "down to earth" to eclectic, this is a really fun pak.

Great job, folks!
