FMM, nicely done. I like the sax and keyboard.
And there's "no resistance" smile in saying the guitar work is excellent, be it your work or BiaB.

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.

Jeff Beck just passed and this piece certainly reminds me of his fine fusion playing. Very nice work here.

One minute & 21 seconds is a long time to wait for the real meat of the track. The backing is solid, the sax is fine but for me it's about you & your guitar.


Cheers

Oh, man, I know what you mean about the hassle of setting up a new computer, Eric. Most sites you visit to get help give you so much run-around that you know they just want you to get frustrated and buy a new one. BiaB was such a refreshing change from "Hold for a representative." I lost my key so had to call. "Hello, thanks for calling PGMusic. This is Jerry. How can I help you today?"

WOW, this song is a blast right from the first note. No build up; just a right in your face goodness. Love that sax, but, yes, Ray is right. The song really takes off when you start playing. Worth the wait though, and as I said, the sax was fine entertainment in the waiting room. Fun changes and great taste, Eric. When the song was done, "Gentle Lady" came on and I had No Resistance.


Enjoy whatever happens!

Hi F.M.M.
I played in a rock band with a sax player called Alan Skidmore when I was a teenager.
I loved that.
When the band broke up he left to play jazz and became quite well known. I never did get that genre. I just put it down to my ignorance and his superiority.

It all sounds very well mixed to me and nice guitar work, though I agree somewhat that it takes a while to get going. But maybe that's the nature of the genre so this isn't a criticism.

Vic

Ha....I hear you.
I sure hope my computer outlives me so I can avoid that trip through hell.

Cool track....smooth, jazzy mood, good axe playing.
Who doesn't love a good sax track!

I liked it....well done.

Carry on....

I'm with rayc... impatiently waiting for the warm-up act to finish so I can hear the guy I came to hear. wink

It all sounds good! It's just that you're the better part of it!

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

I agree but I didn't mind the "intro" sax's length at all. When I played in a band with a tenor sax our jams were exactly like yours length wise.

As usual great guitar chops and mix.


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.

Nice guitar playing and tone, and the saxophone is also pretty good.
The drummer could once in a while pause the cymbals, but that's my only nit.

Hi Eric,

I get that you had to take it off, because of the PC problems... That's why you made this song I think?
And that is why once in a while you need to have those pc-problems. To make good songs!
I also think you underrated your guitarplay here. It is wonderful!

love it,
Hans

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."
