Hi all!

I just published my new tune. It is a tribute to my mother who passed away and to all the mothers of the world.

It is a slow jazz fusion tune in 3/4.

Composed and mixed in reaper
I play the guitar (theme and solo)

BIAB :
ARECLI.STY (just at the start)
LONER.STY (for 95% of the tune)

SPITFIRE LABS : I used the long choir

I used reaper with Valhalla reverb+OTT+Ozone 9
THU Full for the guitar tone.

Hope you will like it!

Very pretty tune and well played throughout.
The inventive melodic lines and guitar tone were very nice and the overall mix was good.

Well done.

Peter

Thank you Peter! For the little anecdote I dreamt of that melody (theme) and when I woke up I grabbed my phone and recorded it. It all started there.

Thank you for your support!

A truly nice tribute song that is presented very professionally. Mothers are the glue of the world ... they hold it all together. I like the guitar track ... I use it often for pop-rock and easy listening pop.

I enjoyed it from first note to last. Excellent!

Wishing you and yours everything good. Be safe ...

Alan

Cool stuff but the effects stack for the guitar along with the playing, I assume, make notes end suddenly and aggressively which takes away, from my point of view, some of the "niceness" of the melody and gives an impression of a shred sheet rather than a tribute melody particularly the ending.

Thank you very much Floyd! Melody is very important to me. As a matter of fact this one started with the theme melody which I developped more to have the tune. Thanks again!

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!
