This is a song I made for a friend that's been in a hospital for a while and not expected to make it out. Monica Dupont a Blues singer-guitarist with a voice like Howling Wolf, she played with many famous players and knew even more. Hendrix gave her backstage passes to concerts. POPSLO.Sty and me on a Fender Strat Guitar. Hope you like it.

Hy Tommy, I am very happy to hear you playing guitar again;-) Beautiful song, extraordinary guitar and, like on all your songs, the mix and and the sound are really outstanding.

Someday I will ask you to tell me the secret for the sound... (although I know that the real difference is ... your ears)

Thanks for share your music with us.

Rafa

Thank You Rafa and Scott for you complements! Rafa it's not really a secret I mostly use presets in Logic Pro 9. It has a suite of presets for just about any instrument and Mastering styles too. On a lot of songs I don't even tweak them, and when I do it's very little. The only thing is it's only available on an Intel CoreDuo or newer Mac. Mine is a 2006 Core2Duo I got cheap on eBay, Logic too about $300 for all of it. I mix on an old home stereo I bought 23 years ago and a set of $10 headphones.

Very nice tune. Once more, it is mostly the player, not so much the equipment! Thanks Tommy.

Tommy that was so pretty and sad. Almost like the guitar was weeping for her on his side of the stage as she was absent in the middle.... The love in the playing is felt.

Beautiful tribute for your friend.

Tommy,

That is beautiful. Heart-felt playing. And a beautiful mix. Don't know how you did it, but the guitar sound seems 3-D - it all around me - from 2 small speakers in front of me.

Loved it.

Thanks Dani and Floyd! Glad Yall liked it.I used a 3d reverb that came with Logic Pro 9 Floyd. It has so many plugins I guess I never got around to trying them all. Now that I look at it there are 64 different hd surround sound reverb presets and about 40 regular ones. I only just noticed it from a drum suite preset that had a "Space Design" plugin.

Hi Tommy,

It's great to see you pop back into the forum.

What beautiful song and such a wonderful tribute. Music doesn't get better than this.

My prayers are with your friend.

All the best,

Tommy

Really enjoyed the tune, as usual your balance of instruments is superb. Nothing in the way, nothing missing.

All the very best to your friend. Hope things could turn out well.

Regards

Trevor

Tommy maybe you should rename this “My Guitar Gently Weeps for Monica”.

Outstanding chops and in fact if I didn’t know this was you I would have guessed that Clapton released an instrumental. Yes it is that good!

I hope your friend makes it.

Top drawer stuff Tommy. The groove and your Strat work go so well together. You put a lot of soul in this and it shows, nice work.

Wow that's a drum mix!!!

and your guitar tone and melodic sensibility here is off the charts!

I wonder how a modulation to maybe key of G around the 2 minute mark, when you come out of the "solo" section might sound?


anyway love the tune, great tribute!

PG Music News
Band-in-a-Box® - Boxing Clever - Sound on Sound #TBT

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® is more than 30 years old? I stumbled across this 1990 magazine article explaining the relatively new program, and think it's an enjoyable read for any Band-in-a-Box user - it really shows that we are always listening to user feedback when developing our program!

Read the article: Boxing Clever: Band-In-A-Box Software

A few of my favorite statements:

"The intention of PG Music's Band-In-A-Box package is to couple that speed and convenience with the improved flexibility of the personal computer. Versions are available for the Atari ST, Mac, and PC compatibles. Have the programmers succeeded? And can they rid themselves of the stigma of the auto-accompaniment section? Given the above state of affairs, the first hurdle that the program has to overcome is one of acceptance and, frankly, a name like 'Band-In-A-Box' is a bad start."

(I think our name was a great start!)

"The final results are, to say the least, impressive. Band-In-A-Box achieves something that most hardwired auto-accompaniment sections have never been able to do - inject a degree of feel into the music. It really does sound more human than so many of the computer generated pieces I've heard."

"...I'm quite convinced that PG Music will have a winner on their hands. This is one piece of software that you can get more out of than you put in."
