Hi!

Dug out a better camera for this one, but methinks I should have spent a bit more time on the lighting. It's all a learning process, I guess.

"Long Weekend" uses a style called Jbreeze which uses the following Realtracks.

RD: JAZZFUNKGROOVIN^1-a:HHSDSTK, b:HHSNR :Ricky Lawson
RT1636: Bass, Electric, JazzFunkBreezy Ev16 075 , Alex Al
RT1639: Piano, Electric, Rhythm JazzFunkBreezy Ev16 075 , Jeff Lorber
RT1637: Guitar, Electric, Rhythm JazzFunkBreezyChords Ev16 075 , Michael Thompson
RT1638: Guitar, Electric, Rhythm JazzFunkBreezyMuted Ev16 075 , Michael Thompson

Long Weekend

Thanks for watching,
Dan

Very, very enjoyable, Dan!

Super playing.

How much time do you spend on your part before recording? Is it completely "mapped out" or is it partially improvised? Either way, it is well done - nicely melodic...

Thanks, Tom. Now that I'm playing a bit more I find my tone and smoothness is improving. Funny how that works laugh

Rob and Anne-Marie


Thank you for such kind words, Rob and Anne-Marie. It is a better camera, but I have held off using it until now because I have to move a bit of furniture in order to use it on the tripod. I had been using my cell phone on a selfie stick which was tied to a microphone stand. Not as good resolution, but I didn't have to move my couch in order to use it, which was a plus.

Very, very enjoyable, Dan!

floyd


Thanks, floyd. I probably spend an average of three or four hours over the course of a couple days practicing each tune before I record the video.

The only thing I have mapped out is the head of the tune, and even that's pretty iffy sometimes. In this particular number I ended up playing it differently on the way out than I did on the way in because I couldn't remember how I played it on the way in. lol. The courses in between are as close to improvised as I can make them. If you asked me to play it again, I could come up with something similar, but it wouldn't be exactly the same.

Thanks for watching,
Dan

Nice Dan. Your backing track was great and I enjoyed the sax melody and improv. It was a nice mix. I'm curious you record and mix the sound for the video.

Thanks, Patrick.

The recording was done directly in Band In A Box using the audio record function. I promised myself I wouldn't spend a huge amount of time on the mixing of these videos, so the mix was done in Band In A Box, too. The video and the resultant audio track were then edited together using Windows Movie Maker.

Thanks for watching,
Dan

PG Music News
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."
