Friday Night Special

One Friday night my friend JonD and I got together and after a few cocktails and came up with this chord progression. A couple of weeks later we got together and worked on it until it is what it is now. JonD is playing the Fender Rhodes and Vibes via his MIDI keyboard controller and I am playing the bass, lead and rhythm guitars. Band in a Box supplied the drums.

The BiaB style was Smooth Jazz Ballad (65 RS). We deleted every thing but the drums and played our own instruments.

We hope you like it.

I apologize for not being on line and listening to others. My Internet computer with the good speakers is down right now but I hope to be back up and running in a day or two.

Enjoyed the song. It's a good listen for tonight here at home, it's rainy with thunder off in the distance, put's me in a mellow mood and this song fits right in.

I like what you did and more importantly, how you did it.

Some top notch playing by everyone.

I like the "bell-like" tone you got on the guitar and the chords.... nice quick little chord changes/progression going on in there right around :45 and some nice picking right there as well. Kudos!!

Thanks Bro for playing this one. "Few cocktails," I guess what's in them dictates the mood:)

Hi there Mario,
Relaxed and loungy we think.
JonD does a nice job on the Fender Rhodes. We wouldn't mind if he created a nice Fender Rhodes user track smile

Cheers!

I finally got all of our computers changed from XP to Win 7 Pro so I am back up and running.

I want to thank all for listening and the extremely kind comments. We really appreciate them.

FWIW Jon and I are planning on getting together soon and doing more music.

Hi Mario & JonD ...

loved that soft and easy and mellow sound. We do a lot of Lounge Jazz, Adult Contemporary and Sooth Jazz - this one is right up our alley! Loved everything about it! Smooth & mellow ... great music and performance. Kudos to both of you!

And FWIW, we're looking forward to your future collabs! Best to both of you ...

Alan & Di

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!
