The first one I created last weekend for a songtradr posting for an Albert King style instrumental. Too easy! I looked up Albert King in the stylepicker, transferred the realtracks to Logic Pro and plugged in my guitar. The tune is currently shortlisted for whatever they want to do with it.

Albert King style

The second tune is a song I wrote a while back. By chance I found this very cool and rather odd celtic rhythm style in BIAB (_BUSTLIN.STY) and decided then and there I'd like to pair the song and the rhythm together.

Hello Matcham. Great effort on both tunes. I particularly enjoyed the rhythm and the feel of the second song.
Great to hear your tunes. Rob

Nice work on both songs - particularly liked the style and arrangement on the 2nd one.

Nice song and listening.
I prefer the second version, more relaxing and original.

When you hear two compositions as disparate as these are from the same artist you just have to love
BiaB and what a creative user can do with it.

Very cool -- both of them!

You're right, Bud. Even the same song can sound completely different with a click of the mouse. That's why BIAB is so inspiring.

Thanks everyone for your comments. Yeah that celtic rhythm style rocks.

The instrumental is cool.
The 2nd track is also fun - rhythmically.
it's a terrific trad style of lyric - thematically and the repeats.
Well done.
