In my pocket diary from 1969 I found
the chord progression which I had written down
at that time. Now, 44 years later, I finally
made a song out of it.

RealDrums-SmoothJazzCoolSw16^1-XStHHt,SnRd
RT902_ Bass, Electric, SmoothCool Sw
Guitar 1228_ Guitar, Electric, Rhythm SmoothJazzCool
RT1056_Sax, Alto, Soloist SmoothJazzCool Sw

Guenter, I love that that track!

Excellent piano solo - I had to scroll back to listen to that part three times.

Lovely chord progression which has obviously stood the test of time and a great choice of RTs. The bass sound in particular was superb - I put the track on my big Tannoys and it had the whole room bouncing!

Got any more gems from 44 years ago?

ROG.

Hi Genter

Love this one. It is wonderful to come across something you wrote down years ago and to revive it. You have motivated me to get out all my old diaries in case there are some hidden gems there.

I also listened to “Last Summer Day”, which I enjoyed immensely

Regards

Cool song Guenter! Nice idea to double w/sax. Do you find that learning the sax solos (to double them) helps with your own soloing?

Hi ROG, Floyd, Dani, Mootsman, Joanne, Bob and Peter,
thank you all for the nice comments.

@ROG: Nice that you liked the solo. When looking in that old chest there might be other lost things.
@Floyd: yes.
@Joanne: I'm glad you liked "Last summer day". When I posted it I got zero replies although my brother thinks it's the best I've ever made.
@Peter: To be honest this time I didn't play the doubling. Incidentally I clicked "Also generate Real chart" and suddenly had a midi track which I used for doubling. If I had known that this works I would have saved a lot of time (which was instructive though).

Hi Geunter
what a cool sound! I enjoyed the strange Sax sound - sounded like a Tenor and an Alto playing together. Excellent piano solo. Jazz is not my thing but I have to admit that it got me tapping my toes.
cheers
Ian
ps - tried to find that song "The LAst Summers Day" on you SOundcloud but its not there.

Hi Geunter
thanks for putting up the link for me.
Its a good piece of music and I like the Kick in at 1.07. I can well imagine that warm and balmy day.
The tune has a good hook that you revisit at times - very good indeed.
Excellent
cheers
ian

To me has an Earth Wind and Fire vibe salted in there.

Cool.

Hi Guenter,

Very very tasteful. The chord progression has aged well over the years.

Regards,
Noel

Thanks Danny.
What Josie and you said about Earth Wind and Fire I can only take as a compliment.
I wasn't aware of that.

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!
