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,

Dani

Hey Mario,

This was a pleasure to listen to. You certainly managed to capture the vibe of a great era in pop music. Very skilful work on all fronts!

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
Customers LOVE Band-in-a-Box® 2021!

Check out some of the latest Band-in-a-Box® feedback we've received:

"There's a saying 'Give a man a fish, feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, feed him for a lifetime.' That's exactly what my friend did in 1990. He taught me how to use BIAB and I've used it hundreds of time to do arraignment and to jam with any style band."

"Love BIAB. I use it daily. Their support is great too!"

"RealTracks are amazing!!! I use BIAB for backtracks in my solo act... Still using the basic package and it's all need..."

"I have used Band in A Box for many years. If it would have been around when I was young, I would have been a much better musician. I use it for all my songs I have written and recorded. With Band In A Box I can sit in my room and sound like a whole band without having to put up with them!"

"If you know something about music and take the time to learn the program, you can make it do some amazing things. It is a great help to songwriters who want to demo their song without paying for studio time. It makes changes and tweaks much easier as well."

"Been using it for so many years. It's a great tool. The instruments that I don't have or play make up the void and it saves so much time. I use this program for every song I write."

"Great tool for the songwriter!"

"An essential part of my studio! I write songs on piano, but I'm not a pianist by a long way. BIAB is like having a roomful of session players in your studio, and just the simple act of taking your basic idea and hearing a skilled pianist play it presents so many new ideas and options you hadn't thought of."

"Powerful, easy to use, inexpensive and they even split the modest payments up if you want. No complaints. Lots of satisfaction."

"I added a steel guitar to a fully produced original. He followed every change like he was in the studio reading the chart. Fascinating technology!"

"I have used it to make backing tracks for six CD's with about 12 songs on each. They make a great gift!"

"It's simply a necessity - buy it now - the staff and support do a great job as well!"

"A great tool for us songwriters!"

"I LOVE Band-in-a-Box!"

"I see it as a very worthwhile investment. In fact, from initial purchase about 8 years ago, using the backing tracks I have made, my income from that investment has returned over 5,000% on the investment!"

continued...

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."
