I like this a lot, especially the guitar leads. My only complaint is that there was not enough guitar leads in the song as I much prefer the guitar leads over the synth leads. I though the synth leads were a little redundant, however that my just be me and YMMV.

It is a good song!


Me, it's not about how many times you fail, it's about how many times you get back up.
Cop, that's not how field sobriety tests work.

eric,

Always enjoy your guitar. You were really cookin' on this one. I agree with Mario - the synth could have lasted maybe 30 seconds and then bring your guitar back in about 1:30... Good rhythm to the backing tracks (the end was a bit abrupt). I also thought a trumpet would have been a nice addition to this one...

Love the guitar.

Greg spoke the exact words I initially thought. Carlos would really like that.

Maybe the synth solo is a touch too long, and repetitive. I was trying to use it as a hook but it didn't quite do that for me.

Nice feel and groove though throughout the whole song, but perhaps the ending was a little unpredictable / truncated?

Hi, Eric !:))


I liked your mambo truly very much !
You are mastering this latin genré also
I can hear !:)) I think you´ve really
captured the right mood here. I see
before me a couple entangled in a soul
dance in a dark and smoky
(misty) night club somewhere in the Caribbean ?


Cheers
Dani

Hi Eric,

nice playing and a great guitar tone.
Agree with some others: It's a pity you didn't
bring back your guitar after some synth lead.

Hi Greg, I agree, your guitar playing is way too good not to return on a third chorus. Great stuff!

Hey eric,

Absolutely every time I hear you play, I come away thinking "I wish I knew how to play guitar". You're very talented and your music is ALWAYS a pleasure to listen to.

I really enjoyed this. It's great to hear something Latin.

Regards,
Noel

Well, I know many artists don't like comparisons....but I'm gonna jump on the Santana bandwagon here. Mighty tasty and a cool backup to go with the wonderful guitar. I love this music!

The Band-in-a-Box® Flash Drive Backup Option

Today (April 5) is National Flash Drive Day!

Did you know... not only can you download your Band-in-a-Box® Pro, MegaPAK, or PlusPAK purchase - you can also choose to add a flash drive backup copy with the installation files for only $15? It even comes with a Band-in-a-Box® keychain!

For the larger Band-in-a-Box® packages (UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, Audiophile Edition), the hard drive backup copy is available for only $25. This will include a preinstalled and ready to use program, along with your installation files.

Backup copies are offered during the checkout process on our website.

Already purchased your e-delivery version, and now you wish you had a backup copy? It's not too late! If your purchase was for the current version of Band-in-a-Box®, you can still reach out to our team directly to place your backup copy order!

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first? If your flash drive (or other USB plug) doesn't have a symbol to indicate which way is up, look for the side with a seam on the metal connector (it only has a line across one side) - that's the side that either faces down or to the left, depending on your port placement.

Band-in-a-Box® 2024 Review: 4.75 out of 5 Stars!

If you're looking for a in-depth review of the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows version, you'll definitely find it with Sound-Guy's latest review, Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows Review: Incredible new capabilities to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs.

A few excerpts:
"The Tracks view is possibly the single most powerful addition in 2024 and opens up a new way to edit and generate accompaniments. Combined with the new MultiPicker Library Window, it makes BIAB nearly perfect as an 'intelligent' composer/arranger program."

"MIDI SuperTracks partial generation showing six variations – each time the section is generated it can be instantly auditioned, re-generated or backed out to a previous generation – and you can do this with any track type. This is MAJOR! This takes musical experimentation and honing an arrangement to a new level, and faster than ever."

"Band in a Box continues to be an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs, as well as an extensive educational resource. It is huge, with hundreds of functions, more than any one person is likely to ever use. Yet, so is any DAW that I have used. BIAB can do some things that no DAW does, and this year BIAB has more DAW-like functions than ever."
