Time for my 2nd chord-melody thing

Hi,

The first chord-melody thing I did was very enjoyable to do.
So I felt I wanted to do another song.
The old trusty Real Book came out and this time I arranged "Autumn Leaves".

As with my last try I did a chrod-melody arrangement and couldn't resist the urge to do the amateur single string solo.

Instrumentation is also the same as last time. Broomstick Bass for the Double Bass. SampleTank 2.0 for the drums and my Yamaha SA500 through software amp.

Hope you enjoy it!

Wow, Mats. That is very nice playing!!!! I'm saving this to my "Journo Collection". And you've done this all with software, with the exception of the SA500? Sounds really good!!!

Well done.
I'm trying to develop some chord melody arrangements myself, so I know the challenge.

What are the computer programs you used for bass and drums?
This is an area of which I am completely ignorant.

If these happen to not be available in the states, can anyone suggest alternatives?
If nothing else, and they are not too expensive, they would make GREAT practice tools.

Hi Somecafone,

Thanks for the kind words.

I'm using a number of different programs depending on what I want to achieve. I always use Cubase SX as my sequencer as it does everything I want from a sequencer. I could probably do as well with the cheaper version of Cubase as it's ridiculously capable when considering the price tag.Then I use a number of different plug-ins for instrument sounds and effects.

For this tune I used Sven Bornemark's Broomstick bass which in my opinion has the best acoustic double bass sound for jazz.
For drums I usually use Native Instrument's Battery 2 but for brushes I've found this set in SampleTank 2 that I really like.

Effects in this case is just a small amount of reverb from the RoomWorks plug-in that comes with Cubase SX.

Cheers,

Mats N

Hi Fig and Anyone,

Thanks for listening. This form of playing is very rewarding and if time allows I might do one or two more of those before other things call out to me.

Cheers,

Hi Jeff,

Glad you liked it.

I might also be taking jazz lessons in the near future. I've been meaning to for the last three years but never gotten the famous "round tuit".

Cheers,

Mats N
