Great job on this Sergio! The guitar and horn play off of each other nicely! Your guitar tone reminds me off Carlos Santana's sound from his "Black Magic Woman" days! Thanks, Torrey

Sergio,

Very nice. An excellent listen.

The backing tracks make a perfect bed for your guitar playing - super tone on this - and nice melodic playing.

Well done. One of your best, I think.

Merry Christmas,

Sergio,

The latin style suits your melodic playing very well here - very nice tone as always and the horns are a perfect addition.
A danceable Christmas tune- wonderful!

a very enjoyable song, and the trumpet when it shows up is tantalizing.

Outstanding...and, yes, the Carlos feel is definitely there.

Great playing, tone, mix and the arrangement is perfect for the song.

Well done and Happy Holidays!!!!

Really enjoyed listening to this track... Loved the Rhythm Section and the tone of your guitar playing... Excellent listen!

My only suggestion for improving this has nothing to do with your contributions... I wish that the muted trumpet RealTracks were more active and imaginative with fuller phrasing... Maybe it's there and I've just never found it... but that's the only thing I can think of that could improve this.

Well done!

Ciao, Sergio,

it's always hard to find words that haven't been said before, when you're reviewing a post belatedly...

Yes, it's a very enjoyable song to listen to, and of course the Santana feel peeps around the corner. But just a bit, because the song has so much pure 'Sergio' in it.

Very well done, I like it a lot.

Take care,

Stefan

I really the Latin vibe you've given this Christmas composition.
Very relaxing & pleasing to the ear.
Merry 7th Day of Christmas!

Mr. Guarneri...

"La Melodia Navidena" is such an achingly "blue" and darkly romantic composition that it defies the tradition of Christmas music. And yet, the RealTrack style you employed -- _SURDINA.STY -- almost lifts the song out of the blue with its low-key "cha-cha-cha" rhythm that invites dancers to express themselves with movement, but sadly, not touching each other, like living sculptures. It reminds me of "source" music from the melancholy soundtracks of classic Italian films such as "La Dolce Vita". Your guitar work brims over with emotion, which made your song quite a dramatic listening experience.

Felice Anno Nuovo, Mr. Guarneri! I look forward to your song posts in 2019.

Sincerely,

LOREN

The Band-in-a-Box® Flash Drive Backup Option

Today (April 5) is National Flash Drive Day!

Did you know... not only can you download your Band-in-a-Box® Pro, MegaPAK, or PlusPAK purchase - you can also choose to add a flash drive backup copy with the installation files for only $15? It even comes with a Band-in-a-Box® keychain!

For the larger Band-in-a-Box® packages (UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, Audiophile Edition), the hard drive backup copy is available for only $25. This will include a preinstalled and ready to use program, along with your installation files.

Backup copies are offered during the checkout process on our website.

Already purchased your e-delivery version, and now you wish you had a backup copy? It's not too late! If your purchase was for the current version of Band-in-a-Box®, you can still reach out to our team directly to place your backup copy order!

Note: the Band-in-a-Box® keychain is only included with flash drive backup copies, and cannot be purchased separately.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first? If your flash drive (or other USB plug) doesn't have a symbol to indicate which way is up, look for the side with a seam on the metal connector (it only has a line across one side) - that's the side that either faces down or to the left, depending on your port placement.
