Scott, that is some very impressive chops!

Super tone on that axe and blended perfectly with the backing tracks

Loved it

PS - we have a lot of Crocus in our garden. They are the first sign of spring, even if they get covered with snow!

Scott, I really like it when you lift the lead line up from the delay so the melodic flow is clearer.


Cheers

Hi Scott ...

Absolutely love this! The timing of the echo delay is perfect. Having that timing just right makes a big difference.

As always, the tone of your guitar is perfect for the song. This is just so good any way you want to evaluate it. Excellent!!!

What a wonderful soundscape and powerful guitar sound!

That Synthpad is doing miracles to the mix.

Scott,

Wonderful instrumental (and they are normally not my thing). But the guitar playing here was so stellar, so slick . . . you have to keep listening. Like those drums kicking in at around the 50 second mark. Well done!

Kindest regards,

Deej

For me there’s no better place in the band than to have one leg in the harmony world and the other in the percussive. Thank you Paul Tutmarc and Leo Fender.

Scott,

The two delayed guitars working off of each other really create some lovely textures! I enjoyed this tune! One of my favorites of yours!

Thanks, Torrey

This is a very pretty instrumental and your tone and melody definitely give it that great dreamy quality.

Janice said she was picturing a field of crocus' swaying in the breeze. smile

Keep on experimenting with those new styles, Scott, and give us more beauties!

That simple five note theme in the beginning was brilliant! And so was the rest of the piece. Easily your best work, IMHO. Great work!

Scott, you are so good on that guitar, man. I always say your taste, technique and tone are on such a professional level of expertise. A wonderfully captivating flow with this one, too. You always take us to some magical place when we close our eyes and listen.


Enjoy whatever happens!

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.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first?

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."
