Hi all,
Now that I have more time I composed this tune. Can't really define the genre (acid jazz, jazz hip hop..).

Styles used :

Jazzhop.sty (Part A)
Torment.sty (Part B)

Guitar used : Fender Mustang 1966
Effects : THU-FULL
BIAB 2020 (I received my 2022, haven't installed it yet)
Mixed in Reaper

Hope you will enjoy it!

SOLACE

Absolutely fantastic.

Excellent guitar playing and a spot on mix. Loved the video also.

I would call this smooth jazz. YMMV

Loved it.


Me, it's not about how many times you fail, it's about how many times you get back up.
Cop, that's not how field sobriety tests work.

Great, you sound like a guitarist I like by the name of RJ Ronquillo. Awesome session guy. Nice playing WITH the sax. Terrific work!

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Mr. Napoli...

There is nothing like watching/listening to a musician who knows how to play his/her instrument! Your performance came off as soulful and deep-feeling.

Forget about defining the genre. It's simply memorable music with a mellow groove and a laid-back feel that is perfect for repeat listening.

Hi Solace,

Very nice guitar playing.

You just need some lyrics now.

Jazz hop. The rhythm is too Latinate/hip hop to be smooth jazz to my ears. I rather preferred the non sax parts.


Cheers

You are right, who cares about the genre, music is music! Thanks for your kind words!

Such good tone! And the melody is perfect and perfectly played, Angelo. The sax was a nice touch. I'm with Mario on the Smooth Jazz, but not a fan of categories. I'd put this one in the class of Really Good Instrumentals.


Enjoy whatever happens!

Sounds great. Love the guitar tone.


My wife asked if I had seen the dog bowl. I told her I didn't even know he could.

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.

Band-in-a-Box® 2024 Review: 4.75 out of 5 Stars!

If you're looking for a in-depth review of the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows version, you'll definitely find it with Sound-Guy's latest review, Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows Review: Incredible new capabilities to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs.

A few excerpts:
"The Tracks view is possibly the single most powerful addition in 2024 and opens up a new way to edit and generate accompaniments. Combined with the new MultiPicker Library Window, it makes BIAB nearly perfect as an 'intelligent' composer/arranger program."

"MIDI SuperTracks partial generation showing six variations – each time the section is generated it can be instantly auditioned, re-generated or backed out to a previous generation – and you can do this with any track type. This is MAJOR! This takes musical experimentation and honing an arrangement to a new level, and faster than ever."

"Band in a Box continues to be an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs, as well as an extensive educational resource. It is huge, with hundreds of functions, more than any one person is likely to ever use. Yet, so is any DAW that I have used. BIAB can do some things that no DAW does, and this year BIAB has more DAW-like functions than ever."
