  2. Choose a style (bossa, jazz, jazz waltz, blues, fusion, Django style, Sinatra style, pop, rock, samba, ...)
  3. Set the tempo.
  4. Push the play button.

 

Video Introduction

 

Band in a Box makes your guitar practice more effective & fun:

  • Practicing with Band in a Box does wonders to your timing, say goodbye to your metronome.
  • Band in a Box provides you a realistic context in which your music is intended to be performed.
  • Practicing scales and arpeggios becomes fun again...  By having a harmonic background, otherwise boring exercises sound like real music.
  • Band in a Box is ideal for speed training .  By gradually increasing the tempo of your exercises step by step you can increase your speed in a systematic way.
  • You can practice improvising over chord progressions and jazz standards in a realistic way.
  • You can experiment with chord substitutions in a realistic way because you can actually hear what is going on.
  • You can work out chord voicings by eliminating the piano.  You take over the accompaniment while Band in a Box plays bass, drums and melody.
  • You can practice sight reading (from the on-screen traditional notation, as well as guitar tabs).
  • You can record and listen to yourself playing along with the accompaniment (you'd be surprised, it's like looking in the mirror).
  • You will get new ideas by using the soloist or melodist.
  • You will be better prepared for jams or rehearsals.
  • Band in a Box is a tremendous motivation boost!

Painful to know that machines do far better than me, even form a creativity point of view.

Also a bit like the race between "The Hare and the Hedgehog".
