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.

Very nice. Like the masterful command of BIAB and your melodic guitar work.

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?

Customers LOVE Band-in-a-Box® 2021!

Check out some of the latest Band-in-a-Box® feedback we've received:

"There's a saying 'Give a man a fish, feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, feed him for a lifetime.' That's exactly what my friend did in 1990. He taught me how to use BIAB and I've used it hundreds of time to do arraignment and to jam with any style band."

"Love BIAB. I use it daily. Their support is great too!"

"RealTracks are amazing!!! I use BIAB for backtracks in my solo act... Still using the basic package and it's all need..."

"I have used Band in A Box for many years. If it would have been around when I was young, I would have been a much better musician. I use it for all my songs I have written and recorded. With Band In A Box I can sit in my room and sound like a whole band without having to put up with them!"

"If you know something about music and take the time to learn the program, you can make it do some amazing things. It is a great help to songwriters who want to demo their song without paying for studio time. It makes changes and tweaks much easier as well."

"Been using it for so many years. It's a great tool. The instruments that I don't have or play make up the void and it saves so much time. I use this program for every song I write."

"Great tool for the songwriter!"

"An essential part of my studio! I write songs on piano, but I'm not a pianist by a long way. BIAB is like having a roomful of session players in your studio, and just the simple act of taking your basic idea and hearing a skilled pianist play it presents so many new ideas and options you hadn't thought of."

"Powerful, easy to use, inexpensive and they even split the modest payments up if you want. No complaints. Lots of satisfaction."

"I added a steel guitar to a fully produced original. He followed every change like he was in the studio reading the chart. Fascinating technology!"

"I have used it to make backing tracks for six CD's with about 12 songs on each. They make a great gift!"

"It's simply a necessity - buy it now - the staff and support do a great job as well!"

"A great tool for us songwriters!"

"I LOVE Band-in-a-Box!"

"I see it as a very worthwhile investment. In fact, from initial purchase about 8 years ago, using the backing tracks I have made, my income from that investment has returned over 5,000% on the investment!"

Band-in-a-Box® - Boxing Clever - Sound on Sound #TBT

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® is more than 30 years old? I stumbled across this 1990 magazine article explaining the relatively new program, and think it's an enjoyable read for any Band-in-a-Box user - it really shows that we are always listening to user feedback when developing our program!

Read the article: Boxing Clever: Band-In-A-Box Software

A few of my favorite statements:

"The intention of PG Music's Band-In-A-Box package is to couple that speed and convenience with the improved flexibility of the personal computer. Versions are available for the Atari ST, Mac, and PC compatibles. Have the programmers succeeded? And can they rid themselves of the stigma of the auto-accompaniment section? Given the above state of affairs, the first hurdle that the program has to overcome is one of acceptance and, frankly, a name like 'Band-In-A-Box' is a bad start."

(I think our name was a great start!)

"The final results are, to say the least, impressive. Band-In-A-Box achieves something that most hardwired auto-accompaniment sections have never been able to do - inject a degree of feel into the music. It really does sound more human than so many of the computer generated pieces I've heard."

"...I'm quite convinced that PG Music will have a winner on their hands. This is one piece of software that you can get more out of than you put in."
