fmm - your guitar playing in impeccable, as always - great feel. I thought that the sax was a little too jazzy and not blues-y enough. You guitar is a perfect blend of blues-y/jazzy. And everything else fit so well...

Cool song. I agree with the previous comment that the guitar playing is great and fits well with the rhythm tracks, but that the sax is not quite the right sound and feeling. More smooth jazz than blues/rock.

I'm conflicted on this same issue in a song I have posted - the sax playing itself is great, sounds really good on its own, and even works well with the changes, but as my producer pointed out for my song, most of the BIAB/RT sax solos sound more like a late-night TV band (jazz/rock maybe) than a rock band. They are great for many songs but not all. I wish there were something more Clarence Clemons or Bobby Keys in the RT sax department! Is there a place to make RT requests?

Thanks,
Bruce

Great sound and feeling.
I would work a bit on the ending. RT endings are sometimes not the way we want them to be. I experiment a lot with holds and stops on the last chord until I finally get what I want.

I agree with all that’s been said. You play a mean axe! The sax doesn’t quite fit; maybe a blues harp would be better? For a jam the ending is fine but for a polished song it must be worked on.

I would rather hear you play all the way through on any song you make, cause I like your guitar picking and tone Eric!

Nice guitar! Regarding the sax I've worked some with the rock tenor sax realtrack and with the "bluesy" option turned on it might be worth exploring. It's in set 32.

I would lose the sax and keep playing the guitar on this cool sounding song. Also, need to trim the long silence ending.

"Band-in-a-Box continues to evolve as an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to produce not only new compositions and arrangements, but also perform them with excellent musical “talent”.

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!
