Hi Folks,

While the Enchanted By Himself David Snyder is hiding out from his screaming fans, the real David decided to do something. So, as you know, sometimes I like to just play the guitar.

One thing I LOVE about some of the Real Tracks below is that they give me a chance to create that "Acoustic Alchemy" style I adore.

Here I am playing both acoustic guitar and what I would call "textural piano." The piano chords are not always the same chords everyone else is playing (i.e., I am laying different chords over the main ones), but the melodic notes in the piano are counterpoints to the guitar melody. It allows me to achieve a certain sound that I think causes you to take a deep breath at certain points. That is to say, I think there is a lot of "psychophysiology" in music.

Hope you enjoy. This is played on an Ibanez Acoustic Electric cutaway, I really love the tone of this guitar as it is, unadulterated. It is also crazy good for doing Gypsy stuff, so I am going to keep it for sure. smile

Hi, David.

Nice!

Oddly enough, the layering of the guitar and keys had me thinking of Pink Floyd more than anyone else. Not a bad thing at all! Maybe it's that underlying organ sound.

I enjoyed the song! laugh

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

That's a really nice tune! Love the playing and the nice little trills, too. Great arrangement and use of BiaB. I used to listen to AA back in their hit making days but lost touch since. This has that same in-the-pocket-but-casual vibe that still sounds fresh and fun. Oh, and nice tones from the Ibanez! But you must change your profile pic to one with you wearing a black button up and white suspenders, like the cover of Blue Chip. Ha!

David, that is some calming acoustic playing. It's nice that you returned the main theme later in the piece. So many instrumentals posted here forget to do that and they get lost in the jam. Nicely mixed and a good listen, Tom

Thanks for inviting us to your very cool hiding place, David. Yeah, that Ibanez sounds full and very relaxing. Because of your words, I listened closely to the piano. It sounds just perfect. Really quite interesting. The whole piece is so aurally pleasing.


Enjoy whatever happens!

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.

Hey thanks Bob.

I am glad you liked it. You are so uptight up there in Woodstock, so I wanted to help you calm down.

HI david,

Well, I guess I'll just have to sell my Washburn and Yamaha acoustics - or train them to play better. What a sweet tone! And your playing is exemplary. Nice touch!

Call me crazy - wait, that's already been done - but I was thinking, Stevie Nicks could sing one helluva lyric to this. Maybe I'm off-base with that, but that's what crossed what's left of my mind.

Oh, the organ was a great choice!

Hello David,

This is a little different than I expected from you, but that's probably because I'm used to the Enchanted By Himself David Snyder.
And you really pleasantly surprised me with this song!
A very nice melody and a really good lead on your acoustic (Ibanez, I noticed?).
My compliments!

Hans

Me too, but more because of the drum fills.
I like the song, it's quite relaxing.
Just the right thing after a stressful day.

David, this is some very sweet music.
Super chops and tone.
Great job on that backing band.
Loved it.
PS - you should do more like this!

Thanks David!

I never expected Pink Floyd, but I will take it any day!

I do have one question as we approach the holidays though.

How I am supposed to eat my pudding when I didn't even get any meat!!!!!!!

Hi David
Excellent instrumental song
The difficult thing with instrumental songs is that they can quickly become boring.
But that's not the case here
really great playing David
Many greetings

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."
