I think its a very well structured progression and melody... this has an an arrangement that has seemless moments of a instrumental exchanges. Very much enjoyed this....good job Sergio.... Merry Christmas to you as well

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 almost missed this one...
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

PG Music News
Band-in-a-Box® - Boxing Clever - Sound on Sound #TBT

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® is more than 30 years old? I stumbled across this 1990 magazine article explaining the relatively new program, and think it's an enjoyable read for any Band-in-a-Box user - it really shows that we are always listening to user feedback when developing our program!

Read the article: Boxing Clever: Band-In-A-Box Software

A few of my favorite statements:

"The intention of PG Music's Band-In-A-Box package is to couple that speed and convenience with the improved flexibility of the personal computer. Versions are available for the Atari ST, Mac, and PC compatibles. Have the programmers succeeded? And can they rid themselves of the stigma of the auto-accompaniment section? Given the above state of affairs, the first hurdle that the program has to overcome is one of acceptance and, frankly, a name like 'Band-In-A-Box' is a bad start."

(I think our name was a great start!)

"The final results are, to say the least, impressive. Band-In-A-Box achieves something that most hardwired auto-accompaniment sections have never been able to do - inject a degree of feel into the music. It really does sound more human than so many of the computer generated pieces I've heard."

"...I'm quite convinced that PG Music will have a winner on their hands. This is one piece of software that you can get more out of than you put in."
