Hi F,

Always listening with extra interest to your Jazz, as I'm trying to master it myself.
When I bring out my first jazz production, I hope it comes near to your work.
You guitar play is full of craftmansdhip and emotion. I loved it.

Cool tone on the guitar.... smoking hot... and the tone works perfectly with the style of the band.

With jazz, you can really stretch out and play some cool stuff on guitar, however.... you gotta know where it's going. And you need to think out of the box a bit.

I couldn't play my country licks and scales over a jazz prog without making changes to certain notes.

What I'm saying is there's a few places where you ended up on a "less than optimal" note or playing in a scale that didn't "mesh" properly with the prog the band was playing.

Listen to the way the sax played. The guitar needed to have some of that same "freedom" with the groove. If you have the time.... you could go back and edit just those certain notes that were obviously a less than perfect fit. Punch in/Punch out is your friend in situations like this.

I think part of the issue was the progression. It wasn't a simple or straight up 1,4,5. There were all sorts of chords in there which is what jazz does. There have been songs I generated using melodist that were really, really cool..... however, when I attempted to put a guitar part on it.... just suffice to say... no one but me ever heard that attempt. It wasn't pretty. I'm a country/rock guitarist by nature and when I play Jazz... well that country rock experience shows....and sometimes not in a good way.

Please don't think this is a "down on you" commentary.... it's not. I'm simply saying, this guitar part needs some tender loving care and a bit more work.

Of course, this is also simply my personal opinion as a musician and guitar player.

Eric, I love the tone you get on this one. I enjoyed the atmosphere that was the essence of this tune. I think Herb has some valid observations. It is a difficult thing to pull off-mixing rock licks over a jazz bed. I think the idea is a good one and you definitely have the chops to pull it off. I look forward to hearing more. Tom

Hi Eric,

a great guitar tone! I agree with Herb about some inappropriate notes. Enjoyable listen though.

I experimented around with some direct input RT's
and amp sims trying to approximate your tone.
I was unsuccessful. You've got a real unique
thing going there.

I tried to listen but soundcloud said the file wasn't there so I'm assuming you took it down?

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!
