I was hooked from the 1st note to the last chord.

Beautiful.

Scott, I particularly liked the vibrato. It gave it a bit of a western movie theme sound. I like how you are using more melody in your last few posts. Very enjoyable listen. Tom

Hi Scott,

nice relaxing song. Gives me the vibe of the Shadows, Ventures and Tornados. Only the cello doesn't fit in that sound, although it's a nice track for itself.
Enjoyable listen.

Thank you Josie, Alyn, Rec, Tommy and Guenter.

Tommy my wife also commented that she thought it sounded like the theme from a Clint Eastwood "Duster" :-)

Guenter yes I agree about the cello. I had been adding cello to my songs from my synthesizer in the past but when I saw it the list of the new real tracks temptation took over. :-)

Very nice, very mellow. You're getting a great tone from the guitar. Enjoyed this.

Nice... I get a "westerns" vibe in places too.

I'd back the guitar down a few db... it's overpowering the other tracks. When you do back it off, pull some mids out of it (the guitar) and give it a slight (ever so slight) high end boost to let it cut through the band tracks and still keep it's rightful place in the spotlight.

good job. just a minor fix to nail it.

Now that was enjoyable. Yeah, reminds me of some
of the themes to 1970's westerns -- and that's not
a bad thing at all. Fun listen all the way around!

Hi, Scott !:))


I listened to this tune earlier
and was about to comment and
then something distracted this
old man from the business and so
I forgot to do what I was about
to do !! This, my friend, has to do
with aging........but I won´t
forgive myself !!! Anyway, it is good
to go a few times thru all posts
and so I came around to yours again !:))
You know, Scott, I really liked this tune
and thus I am so glad I could tell you this !
I love your sweet guitar playing being only
a rhytm guitarrist myself !:))
If I could envy anything in this world
it would probably be all you wonderful
lead guitarrists !!!:))

Have A Really Sweet And Merry Christmas
and A Most Creative New Year !!!

Cheers
Dani

Dani thanks again for the kind words. I like to go through all the posts as well. There is so much to learn here. The positive and constructive input to everyone's songs are a huge benefit to myself as well as others I think.

I started out about 40 years ago as a Rhythm guitarist in a high school band. I always wanted to be able to play lead but life got in the way and I quit playing all together. So about 5 years ago I decided to revisit the guitar. I subscribed to quite a few instructional sites and eventually could play some basic scales. One downside to waiting so long to start playing again is I developed a wicked stage fright. I find it absolutely impossible to play in front or for anyone. My hands turn to mush... BIAB has made playing an absolute joy.. I remember the first song I posted about three and a half years ago. I didn't sleep that night thinking my song was going to be completely rejected. Everyone was so welcoming and gracious. Confidence is slowly growing..

Merry Xmas to you and your family and Happy New Year.

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.
