Hi Fitzy,

Such a heartfelt tribute. I felt it captured the "tears in Heaven" vibe. Very touching.

Very beautiful tribute as others have said. I really like the sparse arrangement, and strings worked perfectly. Very sweet and touching. Take care. Greg

Hi Fitzy,

A beautiful song arranged very tastefully and presented with sincerity. I don't think tributes get any better than this. It was my pleasure to listen.

Best wishes,
Noel

Hi Fitzy,

This is a beautiful and moving song. I love the lyrics and the melody. It has a really nice contemporary vibe to it. The arrangement is a perfect fit and the mix sounds great here.

Also I like your voice a lot. You have a very commercial tone and style.

Looking forward to hearing more from you.

Hi Fitzy,

Again, beautiful song.
I was wondering... which real tracks did you use?
Especially the fingerpicking guitars.

Regards,
Rob

Hi Rob,

the main guitar is 2051, a Brent Mason country acoustic. Then later 1582 and 1765 come in, one strumming the other finger picking.

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!

My New Favorite Thing - Extra Style PAK #9 with Loop Pack #2

I set up an eight bar progression with some simple pushes, shots, holds, and rests for reference. Then I started auditioning styles--Three hours later, I am invigorated, inspired, and just plain smiling big. Really CHOICE! From "down to earth" to eclectic, this is a really fun pak.

Great job, folks!
