Guitar Pro 6

I asked for guitar Pro 6 for Christmas, and I got it! For those of you who are not familiar with this software, it can be found at the following web location: Guitar Pro Website

I've been searching the web for locations where I can download guitar Pro 6 files. The best site located so far is GPROTAB.NET. The content of files on this site are to be used for private study, scholarship or research only.

As I listen to these songs, I realize that some of these recordings are recorded using a keyboard as an input device rather than a guitar. This sent me down the trail of looking for an “audio to MIDI” conversion device that would allow for guitar input into a program such as guitar Pro 6. One of the best devices that I discovered was the Sonuus Midi Product, the i2M Musicport Signal Converter (see AMAZON). I foresee this device going on my next years’ Christmas list!

For copyrighted songs, the place to go is mySongBook. It's discussed at the guitar Pro website as well. These are professionally done guitar Pro files that have paid their just due royalty fees. They can be downloaded for a price. As I listened to a few demos, it became apparent that they were using a real guitar for input of the guitar parts. They probably are using the new Sonuus device mentioned above.

What am I going to use the software for? While it's nice to use this software to learn popular songs, I also find it quite useful for practicing guitar chords and scales. These types of files are not copyrighted and are available at many guitar TAB web sites. Also, I'll probably use the software to document my own songwriting.

Check it out! It's pretty cool.

New Track Out! Feeling My Way Check it out!

  Feeling My Way (Spotify) Feeling My Way (Apple Music) I am "Feeling My Way" into a new process to create music.  This track is the start of a new vocal to instrumental series.   This track started as a Strat guitar with voice improvisation. Later the voice impro was converted into a Strat guitar lead.  Next the guitar audio creates a chord track which then runs an automated rhythm guitar accompaniment.  The string part came later as an improvised counter harmony.

@BillJonesMusicStudio is now on Instagram!

  I've setup an account on Instagram  @BillJonesMusicStudio It was a learning experience on getting a decent product to the platform.  I started the account with daily improvises, called the Video Jam Series. I also modified some YouTube videos to run on the platform.  Currently, I am working on a new method of creating music using improvised voice and guitar/keyboard.  My experiment with Instagram Reels went well, with one posting spinning up 1,200 plays.      The Video Jam Series shot live guitar and keyboard improvises.  Some jam motifs are worked out a few minutes before.  The goal is to capture improvised music.  Then, after initial recording of audio on both iPhone and Cubase DAW, the audio is processed.    Processing can include: Adding complementary instruments Adding EQ, compression, guitar amps, normalization, tempo detection, midi note editing   Importing video to Cubase, lining up audio files, exporting video with processed audio   Video is converted to the Instagram &q
