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.

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!

On top of the usual varieties we offer for Piano, Guitar, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet, Bass, Tuba, Trumpet, Trombone, and more - our RealTracks library also offers a nice selection of Shakuhachi and Kalimba - there's even a Koto RealTrack included in Set 212!

Kalimba: RealTracks Set 271

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!
