Psycho Guitar

Just some silly playing around with a few RTs and effects - nothing too serious. I put this together one afternoon about 3 or 4 weeks ago. It's only 2:34 in length. Di was napping and I had a little time for music. It's no big thing ... just some fun time for me. I made a few track substitutions from the original style. And, obviously, I added a few affects ... mostly echo/delay and a slight amount of flange. As always any comments welcome.

Alan

Good instrumental, enjoyed.

BIG snare sound...nice.
I do love some wailing guitar - the FX are subtly done for the most part. Reminds me of a bluesier Santana due to the rhythm.
Nice one.

Hi Alan,

Hey, that was a good afternoon's work!

This is driving music - not country lanes but interstate, or motorway here in England.

A fabulous track and a great mix. The only thing wrong with it?
NOT LONG ENOUGH - I've got a 30 min drive to get to the coast and I want to play it all the way!

Hope you and Di are staying safe and well.
Take care my old friend.

ROG.

Effects sound good on the guitar. Awesome sound overall. I was really in to this---two and a half minutes is too short. I wanted more!

Enjoyable cross-over disco rock, which I haven't much heard, thus this sounds very original in my ears. And that guitarist, amazing - BIAB and your talent make it sound fresh and hot, for some reason this reminded me of Jason Becker. Super mix and great use of effects. Should definitely be much longer smile

Beautiful playing Al. The band aint half bad either.
Seriously, you achieved more in an afternoon, while "Di was napping", than I can in days and weeks of work/play.
Thanks for sharing, Al.
Cheers,
Mike

Review - Xtra Styles PAK 9 for Band-in-a-Box® 2020

Remember that wonderful review of Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac we received last month from "Dr. Dave" Walker, Band-in-a-Box 2020 for Mac … WOW!?

Well, Dr. Dave is at it again! He's had a chance to work with the newest Xtra Styles PAK 9, and shares his thoughts in his recent Xtra Styles PAK 9 for Band-in-a-Box 2020 – Worth It? post at Dr. Dave On Music - make sure you check it out!

Sneak peak...
...PG Music has gone deeper into several styles, using more or fewer instruments, adding unexpected ones, and giving some surprising make-overs. Others are more focused versions of particular styles with more extreme attention to the best of that genre. Other ones combine styles that sound great, such as adding a banjo to a rock or blues track, or a jazz sax to a folk style. There are many wonderful combinations to try out that will expand any songwriter or arranger’s palette. These are the things that make certain songs stand out, and experimenting with them is not just fun (a lot of fun!) but it will expand your horizons on what is possible and even excellent. For instance, my light jazz arrangement worked very well as a country song, which floored me, and also as a folk-alt-jazz fusion. One sax solo was worth the price of admission alone, as it sounds terrific in any of the arrangements.
-"Dr. Dave" Walker

Again we say, "Thank you for the review Dr. Dave!" - we really enjoyed reading this enthusiastic review!
