Chuck,

Norman turned me on to the CTRYSWS.STY also. I use it and modify it sometimes.

You might consider creating a hybrid style using Real Tracks, Real Drums, and MIDI. I like the Real Drums, but the bass can get weird sometimes. If you're using a DAW, you can play the bass yourself, or use a BIAB MIDI bass and edit it within the DAW to get the walks you want. When I use the BIAB MIDI piano and drums, I power them with EZKeys and EZDrums to get more control over the individual drums, etc... The BIAB rim shot is never loud enough for me. Another trick I do sometimes is to use Real Drums and duplicate the drum tracks in the DAW, then EQ them to favor the individual drum I'm looking for. For example: I'd EQ one drum track to highlight the kick drum and use that in the mix. You can do the same on snare, etc...

Fiddles - I've not found a good substitute for the real thing if you want solos, but some of the Real Tracks can do some decent fills if you don't have a fiddler handy.

I just posted a recent song here on the forum that I used these techniques on. I'm learning everytime I use this stuff.

Every bit of that is over my head. As much of a handyman, do it your selfer and pretty good with computers and steel guitar, I just can't grasp BIAB.

Norman is very good with BIAB, etc... and a very good guy too. We trade BIAB ideas ocassionally. I've learned a lot from him.

It sounds a lot more complicated than it really is. If it was hard, I couldn't do it. Smile
