I am new to BIAB...I just purchased the 2021 version. My main interest in BIAB is recreating some of the great, classic jazz recordings from the 40's, 50's and 60's and then learn and play the piano/organ parts over the chord progressions. I am currently in the process of learning the organ part to Richard "Groove" Holmes "Misty". This was one of my favorite jazz tunes growing up.

I have the chords that I can enter into BIAB, but the question I have concerns the guitar part. The guitarist in the tune is playing these comping chords over the down beats of each bar...mostly with a downward strumming technique. I feel like I can recreate the bass and drum parts with no problem just by choosing one of the basic Jazz Swing styles. The guitar part is a little more difficult. I feel like if I record the part through a midi keyboard, I won't get the desired effect. Does anyone know if BIAB has a feature that can emulate this "strumming guitar" technique?

Thanks in advance,
