Tom, thanks for the nice words. You're right about the breathiness, and the ill-fitting strum. I actually have a master where I edited the breath sounds down but couldn't locate it. I'm really digging what you've been doing lately. Really sweet! In fact, you inspired me to write my first blues song which I hope to post a first version of in the next month or so. Your music turned me on to the blues sound which I have generally been lukewarm on. Thanks for the kind words and inspiration!! Take care. Greg

Floyd, thanks so much for the nice words. Your technical analysis, as usual, is spot on. There were a few production glitches. Really enjoying what you are doing. This is a great forum of nice, talented, and interesting people--a real joy to participate it. Enjoy the weekend!! Take care. Greg

Another classic from the same LP (also Webb-what a genius!!)

Hello Greg,
We were curious about the songs you create and we looked for some of them. We like "What might be". Very nice vocal and beautiful song.
Except from bass and guitar, did you use any additional real tracks?
Regards,
Rob and Anne-Marie

Yea, this is a really well crafted tune and mighty fine singing. I think some of the technical advice given is pretty good -- use it on the next CD (ha, ha). If this CD is done, just keep moving forward.

Very talented and good use of the real tracks and real drums. I am a big fan of always adding in one or two live" instruments to help the RT's out. Consider that for the next CD.

Hello Rob and Anne Marie. Thanks for the nice words about this song. I used a Pro Tools and Sample Tank to put together the strings (Cello and 2 violas if I remember correctly). Really enjoying the songs you guys have been posting. Keep up the great work! Take care. Greg

Thanks for the positive words and the input. Hopefully I'm still improving in terms of making the tracks sound natural. I am a poor musician so I think my "live" tracks would destroy the sound. I do have live bass (by a good friend) on 4 tracks I've done and a live guitar solo (my son's guitar teacher) on 1 track as well. I do think it works great to have them mixed together as Tom Adams and others have done. Take care. Greg

Thanks Dani. I very much appreciate the support! I hope to be posting some new songs pretty soon-have several in progress but I'm so busy with work and the kids that it's slow going. Thanks again for your kind comment. Take care. Greg

Review - Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Windows

Make sure to check out the latest Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Windows review from Sound-Guy (Dennis) at www.gearslutz.com: click here.

Sound-Guy has been using Band-in-a-Box® for many, many, many, many, many years - and we still managed to surprise him with some great new features! Read his latest review to learn more about his favorite additions for 2020!

"Band-in-a-Box continues to evolve as an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to produce not only new compositions and arrangements, but also perform them with excellent musical “talent”. It also provides educational and training tools for keyboardists and guitarists. It’s easy to use the basic functions, and challenging enough to keep you occupied for years. BIAB provides education, inspiration, a “live” band to aid in practicing, and anything from backing tracks to full performances for recording."
