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.

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 - Xtra Styles PAK 9 for Band-in-a-Box® 2020

Remember that wonderful review of Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac we received last month from "Dr. Dave" Walker, Band-in-a-Box 2020 for Mac … WOW!?

Well, Dr. Dave is at it again! He's had a chance to work with the newest Xtra Styles PAK 9, and shares his thoughts in his recent Xtra Styles PAK 9 for Band-in-a-Box 2020 – Worth It? post at Dr. Dave On Music - make sure you check it out!

Sneak peak...
...PG Music has gone deeper into several styles, using more or fewer instruments, adding unexpected ones, and giving some surprising make-overs. Others are more focused versions of particular styles with more extreme attention to the best of that genre. Other ones combine styles that sound great, such as adding a banjo to a rock or blues track, or a jazz sax to a folk style. There are many wonderful combinations to try out that will expand any songwriter or arranger’s palette. These are the things that make certain songs stand out, and experimenting with them is not just fun (a lot of fun!) but it will expand your horizons on what is possible and even excellent. For instance, my light jazz arrangement worked very well as a country song, which floored me, and also as a folk-alt-jazz fusion. One sax solo was worth the price of admission alone, as it sounds terrific in any of the arrangements.
-"Dr. Dave" Walker

Again we say, "Thank you for the review Dr. Dave!" - we really enjoyed reading this enthusiastic review!
