Blue Stew

One of the most fun things to do as a guitarist is to jam with other players, I used to do that quite often back in the day. Nothing too serious, just having fun with the music.

Peter and I did a jam together about a year ago and thought it was time we did another. Last time we jammed over an Albert King type groove, this time up we were shooting for a Statesboro Blues (ABB) feel.

I start things off and do the first 12, and we swap back and forth after that.

The rest of the band:

RealTracks in song: 1583:Bass, Electric, TexasBluesRockShuffle Sw 130
RealTracks in style: ~425:Organ, B3, Background Blues Sw 120
RealTracks in style: 2436:Guitar, Electric, Rhythm NewOrleansShuffle Sw 130
RealDrums in Song: BluesRockShuffle^1-a:Snare, HiHat , b:Snare, Open HiHat

Song is also up on soundcloud but sounds better on reverbnation, link at the top of the page.

Thanks, Peter! smile

Ohh you are talking with those guitars!

I deeply believe that the most creative music is born from jams because one (or more smile ) can just relax and follow the mood.

Dave & Peter nice job!

P.S. I also liked handshake avatar!

Dave / Peter,

You guys sound great together! The guitars are outrageously good - love the backing tracks and mix as well.

Excellent!

Bob

BlueAttitude (and Peter F):

Some very cool blues you got going on with some killer guitar. Could chill in a dive bar somewhere with an endless stream of beers and listen to you two all night long. Great work both of you!

All the best,

Deej

Thanks, Misha!

The best jams of course is with everyone in the same room, but hard to do with Peter being on the other side of the planet!

I like the way the guitars fed off each other increasing as the tune went on. I also liked the way they had their own space in the mix. Just a nice noticeable but subtle tonal difference between the guitars. A really good listen. Actually had my poor ole foot moving.

Tony

2:38? Come on y'all we could listen to nine minutes of that and then start it over!

We like everything you two do and having you together ices the cake.

We love the blues and we love this...big time!

J&B

PS (Bud here) Love that Statesboro Blues hint in the intro...I went to college in Statesboro and graduated the year the ABB released it. It's my ringtone!!!

Dave & Peter...

THIS. IS. KILLER.

Everything about it is SO RIGHT.

Both guitars are off-the-charts. The mix is as good as they come. The guitars POP. The drums sound great. The organ is so "there". NICE!

Worth many listens. A Big WOW, boys...

Awesome jam guys. Very cool backtrack to jam too. Both you have very distinctive styles and guitar tones but the fit so well together. One of my favorite instrumentals to date. Well done

Great job guys! I really enjoyed listening to the two approaches. They’re similar but still very different. Excellent mix and it’s super to hear you two playing together. Well done, Tom

Upgrading to Band-in-a-Box® 2020 is Easy!

Did you know... anyone who has owned a previous version of Band-in-a-Box® is entitle to upgrade pricing - you do not need to have your old version installed!

Maybe you used to own the Windows version, but you now have a Mac... that's not a problem either!
(or if you owned the Mac version, and now you have a Windows computer)

In both cases, you would purchase from the "Upgrade from 2018 or earlier or crossgrade" row here for a new Mac version, or here if you want the newest Windows version. Just need to upgrade your 2019 version? Use the "Upgrade from 2019/2020" row.

When you purchase your upgrade from either of these rows, you will receive a complete installation - just follow the steps of the setup, and your Band-in-a-Box® will be ready to use!

PG Music Inc. shopping cart accounts were not required to purchase from our website prior to October 29, 2014. With that in mind, you may have to create an account in order to upgrade - that's OK! You'll still be entitled to upgrade pricing.
