Here is the sixth weekly release for my 52 Tracks Project: Coming Out of Memphis in the Spring.

http://52tracksblog.com/2016/02/11/track-6-coming-out-of-memphis-in-the-spring/

I used the CSWNGMP style, from which I selected the 540 Swing Electric Bass (165), Nashville Swing 8 Drums, and the 976 Clean Electric Guitar Rhyhm Swing Guitar. I dug out my Telecaster and played rhythm and took the solo. I raised the tempo from the styles 140 bpm to 170 bpm.

Thanks for listening.

Great guitar sound and vocals. I really like the song a lot, and to me the guitar work and vocals really shine through on this one. Great job.

Good guitar sound Fred and your lyrics tell an interesting story. I like your voice and you did a good job with the RTs.

Another really nice song in this series. The guitar solo on my system was really low in the mix. Everything else sounds good.

Thanks, Peter. I will note the lead guitar level for possible remixing down the line.

Fred,

A solid write. Interesting all the way through.

The production is nice. Simple, but plenty to carry the song. Nice job on the solo - the clean tone works well.

I really wanted there to be some harmonies on the two ending lines every time it came around.

Good mix. Enjoyed it.

Thanks, Floyd. I agree a harmony vocal would add a lot. On my to-do list!

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!
