Well, that's my sort of thing! I love everything about this track, especially the guitar parts - excellent! I love the engineering and mi: nice and tight and chunky. Super vocals, especially the harmonies. A knock out track!

What a great opening!!

Drums sound great! I love a "leathery" snare and this one POPS!

Chris' vocals and harmonies are outstanding.

Delicious guitar! Sweet!

A nice change up at the end to make it even MORE listenable...

Excellent all around. Great listen.

Thanks very much, Floyd! Drums are processed through iZotope Neutron.

And yeah, that bit at the end is the best part of the song for me, thanks for mentioning that smile

Very, very good.

Thanks very much, Robert!

I wouldn't change a thing here - thanks for sharing!


Thanks for stopping by, Deryk, I appreciate it!

- All the backing tracks and the comped drum track were hitiin’ the note.

Lastly, but not least, the mix is perfecto.

Kudos!!!

J&B


Thanks for mentioning the outro, that's my favorite part of the song smile

For the guitars, one of the things I've learned in my old age is that less is more, especially when working with a vocalist. I always listen back and ask myself if the guitar is adding anything to the song, if not, it's gone.

And thanks for the comments on the mix also! Makes my day to hear that from someone like you smile

Thanks, David!

Guitar is a Strat through S-Gear, but I also do some processing after the fact. Always trying new things to try and get that ultimate tone, sort of a Holy Grail thing I guess smile

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!
