Idols

The quarterly review over on Kara-Moon.com for this quarter is write s song about who/what first inspired you to play your instrument. Here is what I wrote:

“It’s a good thing you said “a song about….” Otherwise I would have just put up pictures of pretty girls! I noticed that local guitar players were getting dates with pretty girls so that was the main reason I took up guitar in the first place! It did work as I married the prettiest girl of all!

Anyway picking an artist whom first inspired me is an impossible task for me. There were so many of them. Duane Eddy, The Ventures, The Shadows, all of the old blues and jazz guys, well I could go on and on. I’ll just let you guess who these guys are.”
-------------------------------------------------
I used the Johnny B.Goode style for this, which kind of kills the guessing game doesn’t it. I deleted every thing except the drums and parts of the piano track.

The drums were slightly modified to better fit the song.

The rhythm piano part is from the above stated style but was slightly modified. The piano lead is from the SuperMidiTrack 1810-piano-rhythm-honkytonkjohn-EV120.

I am playing the bass and guitar parts.

I hope you like it.

Mario, that sound takes me back. I sho Nuff played those licks myself. I liked the unison guitar and bass part in the middle, and the descending bass line was excellent. Good job. Tom

Mario, yep, like the others said, great job. Blues like that just never seem to fade. Glad each of the Muso's managed to get a chance to show off their talent here and there.

Hey Mario...

I think something's a little screwy on my computer. When I click onto your song title, it takes me to my pictures folder on my computer! I'll try to figure out what the heck is going on and get back to this!

Thanx everyone for listening. I appreciate your comments also.

Tommyad, if I had a dollar for every time I played ‘Johnny B. Goode’ I just might be a millionaire by now!

Alan – now that is weird! Have you been able to get to some of my other music?

Janice & Bud, Videotrack and Mike thanx for the very kind comments.

Hi Mario,

this one really takes you back in time.
Good job on bass and guitar.
That piano is a good choice.

Made this old smoothie feel like a younger rocker, for a while anyway. :>

Good one Mario!

Mario,

A fun listen! Good guitar and bass work. The piano is worked in well - and good all around mix. Now...if we could just get you singing along...

I like the leathery snare sound you have on it...where are your drum sounds from?

Enjoyed it!

@Al,
if you don't have an app designated to automatically play MP3s on the web, it may be prompting you to save the mp3 to your computer. That's what happened when I clicked on the link...

@Mario!
fun little song and well executed! You certainly got my foot moving! I liked the part where the guitar and bass mirrored the same lick...

Thanx all for listening. I truly appreciate your very kind comments.

Floyd – I’ve been using Stephen Slate Drums for quite a while now. I recently picked up his SSD 4 Platinum, http://www.stevenslatedrums.com/products/platinum/
I got it on sale for $100 around Christmas time. It has 100 different kits plus you can assemble your own kits. I used the stock preset Slate Rock 1 kit for this song.

Chuck Berry or Williams ? Ok,

too !:))It really took us
back and....I enjoyed the ride.....:)) (lol) !!

Cheers
Dani

All the best,

Cool man, cool! Really enjoyed it.

The Ventures. My folks had the Ventures Live album and I wore that thing out on the console stereo. I can still picture the album cover.

PG Music News
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.

See for yourself! Within the program, visit Options | Icon Set and choose from: Classic, Modern 1, or Modern 2.

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.
