A tribute I put together this week for the late, great Gary Moore, who passed away last Sunday. It's an instrumental based loosely on his song "Midnight Blues". Backing track is all BIAB:

Thanks very much Bob Still needs some fine tuning, but getting close I think.

Dave,

Sadly I never really got to listen to much of Gary Moores work (we had hoped to see him play a gig near us later in the year). But I've listened to your tribute and I realise what I've been missing (missed).

Regards,

Dave

Thanks Steve! I tried to go over to your page and check out your music, but couldn't stream??? It kept wanting me to download for some reason.

Hey Greg, glad you liked the tone and the licks, you made my day!

Dave, if you want to get into Gary's blues work, my favorite of his blues CD's is "Blues for Greeny", a tribute CD he did for Peter Green. "Still got the Blues" is also quite good. Also the DVD from his concert at Montreux, "Gary Moore and the Midnight Blues Band at Montreux" is outstanding! A lot of the clips from that concert are over on youtube, just go over there and do a search for Gary Moore and you will find them.

Dave,
I really liked the song. Great guitar sound and chops. Well put together and quality mix. I loved the tempo change near the end. Good Job!

Hi Dave

Like your guitar sound. Round and full. Bluesy all the way. I had no idea who Gary Moore was though. I also hear a feeling of Stevie Ray Vaughn, floating around in your playing. As Marty said I also like the end. Very well packaged tune.

Thanks for sharing.

Thanks Marty, was hard to get my head around playing over that bit at the end with the change in feel, took a few passes to get it right :P

Pierre, that bit of the end is a quote from his tune "Still got the Blues". If you don't know Gary and are into guitar I recommend you check him out, lots of video over on youtube.

Dave,

Thanks for the info on the CD..I got hold of it and had a quick listen...thought it was great and an added bonus as I like Peter Greens stuff (saw a documentry on him the other day..instead of guitars in the background like most others would tend to have he had fishing rods and a keep net...bless!).

Also managed to record & watch the Gary Moore "1 night in Dublin" concert which was a bit sad as it's a tribute to Phil Lynott!!

Cheers,

Dave.

PS could I be cheeky and ask which BIAB style you used....I have the urge to try and break my fingers!!

The main part of the tune uses _EZ_BLUZ, tempo 85 BPM. I dropped a B3 realtrack onto the piano track, can't remember if there was something there before or not. I used 673: Organ, B3, Background blues.

For the change at the end I swicthed to _DRDUN_G, can't remember if I made any changes to it. Tempo changes to 65 BPM for that part.

Thanks for the info...I think this will test my ability to use BIAB nearly as much as my dubious guitarism!!

Cheers

Super blues Dave!

I agree 100 percent about the guitar tone and your chops, outstanding.

I love the blues and you did it justice!

Hey John,

Thanks very much! Just went over to your website and had a listen to "Lost on the Breeze", just outstanding! Man, when I compare that to the stuff I hear on the radio .... well, something is seriously wrong with todays music industry. Love your studio too! Puts mine to shame.

Thanks Mario! A couple of very tasty looking guitars in your profile pic. I've always wanted a 335, but somehow ended up with three strats and a PRS :P

Loved your playing on that track you did with Noel BTW

Hey thanks Carlos!

Hope you don't mind, I went over to your page and had a listen to your music. Outstanding! I love hearing jazz guitar played well, and you play it very well indeed!

I can't play that style at all and I'm to old to learn now I think. I very much enjoyed hearing you play

(and if you open the 32-bit version, the "splash screen" will state "32-bit")

Still not certain which version you're running? Within the program, go to Help | About Band-in-a-Box - it'll either state:

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows

We hope everyone who can is enjoying their Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit version for Windows!

NEW! Style-style-style Additions and Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows!

With over 64 new features and enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019, we've made sure to add to, enhance, and update some of the Style features within the program: StylePicker, StyleMaker, and Song Titles browser within the StylePicker!

StylePicker Enhancements:
-If the style list needs rebuild, it tells you that within the StylePicker, instead of a message that requires a response.
-The rebuild is faster than before by 75%. It takes 1/4 of the time now.
-While the style list is being rebuilt, you can see the progress inside the StylePicker.
-The style list can be filtered by a specific RealTracks/RealDrums/MIDI SuperTracks or RealTracks/MIDI SuperTracks in a certain number range.
-You can filter the style list by a specific Xtra Styles PAK.
-The dialog to select an Xtra Styles PAK has a button to take you to the PG Music website that shows information about Xtra Styles PAKs.
-The StylePicker can list all styles (including N/A styles) in the default display.
-The Set number display is improved, including sort by type and Xtra styles.

StyleMaker Improvements:

-The new MIDI velocity offset allows you to make styles with altered loudness for MIDI tracks.
-Styles can be saved with information like a memo, examples, genres, and more, which will be displayed in the StylePicker.
-You can import information from another style. This is useful when you are making a similar style.
-A style can have a huge number of RealTracks (up to 70!) because the StyleMaker now supports RealTracks multi/medley feature, which allows a single track to have up to 10 simultaneous playing of RealTracks.

Song Titles Browser Enhancement

-We’ve added 300 more song titles including requests from users, so there are now over 10,600 titles.
-The chord density filter is available, and it’s also displayed in the memo.
-The chord complexity filter is available.
