Good old ZZ Top blues-rocknroll, is it really possible to get that guitar sound out of BIAB smile Excellent raspy vocals and superb kicking mix.

Hi Gruverider,

one might think that all bluesrock songs must have been sung and played before - not this one, man: I LOVE IT.

And what will I have to drink and smoke to get a voice like yours? (Who would care what the doctor said...) - just stunning !!!!!

ZZ Top was my first thought also.

Great blues man! You have the perfect voice this genre.

I thoroughly enjoyed this.

Hello, Lawrence

Really nice groove!
As others say, you have the perfect voice for blues/rock!
Nice use of the guitars!
I agree with floyd.
The extra delay on the slide was a great touch - really brought it to life.
Needless to say, the vocal is top shelf.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

Glad that you enjoyed it! A good place to start might be 20 years of whiskey and five years of vodka

Lawrence,

This is a really, really fine listen. I love the groove, your writing and playing are as strong as always, your arranging is excellent (again 'as always') and your vocals are top notch (once again!). When it comes to making music that sounds like it's radio ready and radio friendly, there's few who can match you on the forum. Your works inspire me.

All the best,
Noel

Revisit: Eyes on Success featuring PG Music Inc., Band-in-a-Box®, and the Updated JAWS Script

In the past, Eyes on Success featured an episode that discussed our company history and Band-in-a-Box® program with Tobin, our chief development officer, including how Band-in-a-Box® is even more accessible with the help of their JAWS screen reader scripts!

Later on this month, Eyes on Success will be releasing an episode that features Gudrun Brunot talking about her new tutorials about how to use Band-in-a-Box® with JAWS.

It's a great idea to pair the two episodes together!

So, while waiting for their Gudrun Brunot episode, take 30 minutes and to listen to this episode from Eyes on Success. To download and listen to the podcast, use the link www.EyesOnSuccess.net/eos_2344_podcast.mp3

User Tip: How to add drum fills without changing any other tracks

MarioD has shared some great advice when it comes to adding drum fills without changing any other tracks in your song:

There have been a number of questions asking how to add drum fills without changing any other tracks in a song. This is especially important if one is holding a chord for a few measures and wants to add a drum fill prior to the next chord. The following is how to accomplish that:

1-get the instruments/tracks to play like you want but don't worry about the drums for now.
2-generate the song.
3-freeze all tracks
4-unfreeze the drum track
5-add your fills where you want them
6-generated the song again - note this will only generate the drum track and not the frozen tracks
7- when you get the drums like you want them freeze the track

Review - Band-in-a-Box® 2023 for Windows is Overflowing with Features!

Dennis posted his very thorough Band-in-a-Box® review recently, where he dives into some of the new features added with version 2023: Sound-Guy's Band-in-a-Box Review

Read his thoughts on the Download & Install Manager, partial track regeneration, Playable RealTracks, Audio Editing, the addition of SynthMaster, the VST DAW Plugin, and more!

"Band-in-a-Box continues to be an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to compose, arrange and mix songs, as well as an extensive educational resource. It is, without negative connotation, a monster of a program. Yet, so is any DAW that I have used. No DAW can do some of the things BIAB does, while BIAB can do a lot that DAWs do."
