Rain All Over Me - Instrumental Mix

A little over a year ago I posted the vocal version of this song. Recently, I stripped out the vocal and slightly reworked the lead guitar and ended up with this. Hope you like it. And thanks in advance for any comments you might leave for me. I'll get back to everyone as I can - Di has been in and out of the hospital lately.

An early Happy Thanksgiving to everyone.

Alan

Hey there Al-David, great work on this! This is beautiful and a solid key signature choice too. Excellent guitar riffs and I found the organ really helps piece it all together. Looking forward to hear more!

Alan,

This COOKS!

Once again, you show off pieces of BIAB that I don't usually look to. And it makes me want to give them a try...

Excellent mix. A great listen. Killer.

Best to Di. Hope you have a good Thanksgiving.

Al,

That`s some very tasty guitar - I`d never heard that solo RT before and this is a fine showcase.
Nothing but the best on this one.

Al-David,

I LOVE IT. I LOVE IT. I LOVE IT !

Reminds me of great Freddy King instrumentals like Hideaway. There may be rain over you - it just brought sun into an an otherwise dark autuumn day.

What more can I say: The guitar caught me completely and technically it's just flawless. It's on my playlist.

Take good care,

Stefan

Thanks, everyone, for those very nice words and the well wishes for Di. She's really struggling right now.

And Stefan, I know what you mean about those autumn nights in Germany. I went through 12 years of them!

Again, many thanks to all!

Alan

Alan,

Right from the start, my feet started tapping and dancing around as I sat here listening. After I listened to this a few times, I sat here thinking, "Alan sure knows how to tap into the heart and soul of every genre that he works with." Whether it's jazz, blues, standards, etc., you not only give us delightful entertainment, you also provide us with musical works that live and breathe in the style.

It's two thumbs up from me.

I'm so sorry to hear that the going has got even tougher for Di. My thoughts and prayers are with you both.

Noel

Hi Alan,

That is an amazing blues track, full of life and "swing". It reminds me of a past part of my life where I played this style of music in a band. Good times!

All the best to you and Di - I hope she will be better soon!

Will

What a tune! Love the bluesy vibe, and the tune has some serious attitude. It definitely hits hard. Precisely the kind of song I'd imagine sounds otherworldly in a live setting. Thanks for sharing smile

Many thanks to all who have commented since my last thank you. I wish I had time to reply to each of you personally, but Di's health is very precarious right now. And also, those who have wished her well, she sends her heartfelt thanks, as do I.

Take care and have a great Thanksgiving!

Alan & Di

Alan,

Nice Texas Blues!
I agree with Robert.
That's some very tasty guitar - I'd never heard that solo RT before and this is a fine showcase.
It reached to my ears as if you were actually playing this guitar.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

Band-in-a-Box® - What People Are Saying...

Wow, check out the latest feedback from Band-in-a-Box® users!

"I have one song I've been torturing over to get the sound right for quite some time and I merely keyed in the chords and what BB generated is awesome. Just what I hoped that song would sound like. What had taken me months to get right (and couldn't), the program could do in about an hour - AMAZING!"

"Great Ear Training Exercises! And I love that that you can set the tempo to whatever you choose. It's great for learning a tune!"

"A very good and easy to use musical program!"

"It's amazingly easy to use! Write a song? No problem! Add background sound track to a video? No problem! Put notes on a staff and have BB make up a chord progression and tell what key you are in? No problem! Start with a chord progression and have BB make a melody line? No problem!"

"Still the best practice tool I have found, great for running lines, improvising over and really helpful for working on song writing ideas as well! Good for beginners, and the more musical skill and knowledge you have the more you will get out of the software."

"I create demo songs with Band-in-a-Box, it helps me to get my ideas across to my engineer!"

"Been using Band-in-a-Box for years. Outstanding product from a great company!"

"It's like buying a Musical History Jukebox. It comes with probably 3000 styles and is like hiring session musicians to play rhythm with you, they even have soloists! It introduces you to so many types of rhythms that you other wise would know nothing about. "

"Paul McCartney said you gotta have a great band behind you. Well, Band-in-a-Box is my band."

"It's as easy as typing in the chords, choosing your style, instruments, etc., and off you go! Learning the tune? You can slow it down while you work on it then speed it up. My favorite analogy is a good chess program, which will play at your speed and level and is eternally patient!"

"I love my Band in a box, it does so much! Besides all the RealTracks and song ideas, it's a great tool to stay sharp with your licks. Social distancing got you down? Can't jam with friends? Pick out any song and go to the mixer button, there you can mute any instrument that's playing so you can jump right in and play along!"

"I love it. I'm a drummer, and Band-in-a-Box really keeps me on my toes!"

"The DAW plugin is really great. Trust me on this. I use it with Studio One.

"This is how I've been able to gig solo for the past 20 years. Band-in-a-Box is the great equalizer for us none rhythm players."

"Wouldn't want to be without it! One of the best things I bought in my life. Simple as that."

"As a songwriter I really love to work with Band-in-a-Box. The only limitation is your own creativity."

"I've used Band-in-a-Box for 25 years and thanks to this program and the advice of PG Music staff I've written over 100 songs. It's great software and amazing help to me as a musician. CONGRATS!!!"

Thank you for all the amazing feedback!
