New Album—Acoustic Guitar Serenades

For this new album, I explored all of the ways to create some really nice acoustic guitar ambient music using the new styles and a few older ones. There is quite a mélange. There are also several ways to listen, but I will give a note on songs first.

On the Soundcloud “Album Channel” I have posted three representative songs up top, Picnic in July, Hidden Buddha, and Swamp Magic.

Swamp Magic is just a song I played solo on acoustic—it was written when I was 12 years old on the same old Yamaha Floyd and I share as one of our first guitars. It took me an entire summer working in the fields to pay for it. (You will see it on the album cover.)

I got a chance to pick a little for Chet Atkins and even jam with him for a while when I met him because he was my hero.

Other ways to listen include going to the new You Tube commercial channel. If you listen there and/or subscribe, I get credit. smile

David,

Outstanding! Really great stuff...

Very cool picture - what year is that? Late 70's?

Love the picture of you and Chet, how cool is that?!

I went to that youtube channel but there is no content there as far as I could tell?

I am with Dave on this one. Imagine to have met and played with Chet Atkins. What a super life event. There was a young man from Winnipeg that Chet Alkins took under his wing way back when. His name was Lenny Breau. You have a masterful touch with guitar David. These songs are so nice to listen to well done...

Nice work David, just listened to Picnic In July and I love the vibe of it! Nice, straight-forward, mellow guitar work that is calming. Getting a pleasant summery vibe off this!

Can't wait to check out the rest of them smile

I really like the two classical style pieces in this collection. "Claire" is pretty, soft and tender. "Old Lovers Reunited" has a wonderful nostalgic feel to it. These two made and excellent start to my day. Thank you!

Hey David,

Sweet! I listened to all but two of them - will get back to them as soon as I can. My favorites are "The Cliffs of Dover", "The Alchemist" and "Swamp Magic". If I had to choose one, it would probably be "The Alchemist". But the rich sound on "Cliffs of Dover" is just so sweet a satisfying. I could rave about all of them.

Great job - lots of talent on display. Loved it bunches!

I heard many nice sounds in this album. I think there are some excellent tracks.
Very good the acoustic tone and guitar technique.

Customers LOVE Band-in-a-Box®!

Here's some of the amazing feedback we've received lately, from program users just like you!

Arthritic fingers means I find it very difficult to play anything. This program is amazing - and it does use real musicians!
-Bob E.

The power of this program is just unbelievable! It's been a best kept secret for a couple of decades now. A song writer's dream!
-Mike D

This band can practice any time of day ...LOL
-William G

Band-in-a-Box works so simple you could teach a child to do it within minutes - the RealTracks are amazing. Doing an album as we speak. I challenge you to give it a try. I am 60 years old and even though I've played 50 years, I am no engineer. But as a song writer I needed some effective tools to create quality production of my work. This is IT! It's as easy as typing and filling in the blanks. The instructional videos allow you to change settings while watching the pro. I myself purchased every "RealTrack" I could get... Take it from me, don't let this overwhelm you. It is absolutely a writer and solo artist dream!
-John S

Best part of Band-in-a-Box is that it saves me having to program drums, the Real Drummer part of the software is brilliant and natural sounding. I then layer real instruments with guys from my band. As a songwriter, Band-in-a-Box has saved me so much time it's ridiculous.
-Andy B

Incredible Software. Great for ignorance and experts and for anyone who wants to deal with music. If you do not have a hobby and want to have one "Band-in-a-Box" is the best choice. Simple, but if you want to be an expert on it, you need to make an effort to master it perfectly for perfect use. The only disadvantage is if you do not want to become a musician, and use it, you will become a perfect musician. Therefore, be cautious. It's not a toy. ;)
-Ilija B.

Been a BIAB man since '92, such a comprehensive source for music making! So much more to offer than "loops", it allows actual music composition to be realized. Evolve from harmonic ignorance and find out what REAL music is made of!
-Don D.

A must for any musician who wants to improve on his own, or to share his musical ideas in a professional high quality rendition.. You just play with the best musicians and that's great ♪ :)
-Jean-Marie D.

I use Band in a Box all the time. I couldn't be more pleased. It's easy to use and it sounds super-big time!
-Max R.

An excellent tool for generating backing tracks. Saves me hours of MIDI programming. Combines the best of MIDI and live audio samples.
-Steve A.
