Hi everyone,

Over the past few years, I have been using BIAB mostly as a learning tool - practicing by playing along to progressions, and so on. However, I decided over the weekend to experiment with exporting Realtracks to my DAW and then playing a melody/solo over top of it with my guitar.

The result is a slow gypsy jazz ballad. You can find it on my YouTube channel here:

Ah, I just noticed the list of items from Peter Gannon that I'm supposed to post with the song. Here they are:

- Title: "Dao's Gypsy Ballad"

- Backing tracks generated by RealTracks, lead guitar played by me.

- The RealTracks used (from memory, since I don't have the file on the computer I'm using at the moment) are:
Bass, Acoustic, GypsyJazzBallad Sw 110
Guitar, Acoustic, Rhythm GypsyJazzBalladGonzalo Sw 110
Guitar, Acoustic, Rhythm GypsyJazzBalladJohn Sw 110
However, I can't remember which drum track I used.

- Other programs used in the production:
Reaper Digital Audio Workstation
Native Instruments Guitar Rig 4
iZotope Ozone 4 (mastering plugin)

- Effects used in production:
No effects on the RealTracks. I used Native Instruments Guitar Rig 4 on the guitar, with a simple Twang Reverb amp emulation and some rack reverb after the mic.

Very nice arrangement and your guitar work is very clean and professional sounding, reminded me of Martin Taylor. I hope to hear more

Thanks Sinbad. I'm not familiar with Martin Taylor, but I will go check out his stuff on your recommendation.

Good work.
I especially like the octaves part.
Very fluent guitar.

Nice job Brett!

Gotta ask: what guitar did you play?
