This is a pretty simple tune. It’s a basic jazz blues progression but I substituted a major 7th in the one position.

I used BIAB real tracks Jazz Ballad style but replace all of the tracks with other real tracks to fit the mood.
I then opened it in Studio One and massaged it.
And finally imported it to GarageBand and mastered it with Isotope Ozone 10 with a custom preset.

PWP stands for person with Parkinson’s. I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s in 2021. Playing guitar and recording songs is therapy for me.

Love it, David. Excellent blues in a lovely lilting way. Terrific playing. I'm getting carried away on your YT channel and must return for more. Take care. That Yamaha silent guitar in chapter 3 is really cool. Some excellent playing, sir.


Enjoy whatever happens!

Yes, keep on pickin' and grinnin' and postin'.

Those are some very outstanding chops.

Great song, however I would lower the sax's volume a tad.


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.

I agree with the other posters - turn that sax down a notch, your guitar is the star here!

Nice playing, thanks for posting! smile

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

Thank you all, I really appreciate your comments. I never played nylon string guitar before. I bought this one for $150 and just opened up my mind to new ideas.
Parkinson’s is a pretty miserable disease. I was diagnosed in 2021 but I’m pretty sure the true onset was 2017. As the disease progresses you develop new symptoms - completely random. But, so far, there’s always been a solution either meds, physical therapy or changes in certain activities. Music is a big part of my therapy.

As to the sax being too loud. I agree. I did another version for an album I was thinking of making. I kind of gave up on it but it’s available on SoundCloud. The soprano sax is mixed properly.

We listened to both the YouTube and SoundCloud versions and enjoyed both.
Your playing is very good and the RT’s you chose as accompaniment fit perfectly.

Music is good therapy for so many situations.
We hope it continues to bring you joy as your music brings joy to us!

Man that was some great tone on the acoustic. The song was pleasant to listen too.

You can make excuses or you can make progress but not both.

The magic you are looking for is in the work you are avoiding.

I listened to both. The level for your picking is better in the video. The sax could go from my perspective. Your picking/playing was more entertaining and in the groove that the RT.
A question if I may...why export to Garageband to master?


Cheers

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."
