Thread: Any plans for a Dixie/Trad jazz player style?

  1. #1

    Default Any plans for a Dixie/Trad jazz player style?

    Hi everyone! Firstly, great app Love it so much!

    The variety of the player styles is great, but I was wondering if it'd be possible to make a dixieland / trad jazz style player? The closest one at the moment is the gypsy one but that's not really the same.

    Thanks!

    My vote is for a tuba

    We need a Dixieland style down here, and soon! Mardi Gras is coming, and we're a 3 piece group! Please say you will! Thanks...

    Yep....tuba and banjo would be nice. Guitar is fine, but piano may be unnecessary. If it could have an option for straight time drums, too, all the better.

    I agree , a Dixie would be fun but perhaps a bit tricky.
    I think they only have 4 tracks to work with.
    1) tuba bass.. that's probably easy
    2) strum banjo also easy
    3)trombone sliding from the 3rd to next chord tone ??
    4) drum
    I don't know what you could do with the clarinet or trumpet but you'd have to sacrifice the drum or trombone.

    So my request would be to have a Bluegrass 2
    with the 4th track as mandolin of guitar playing a solid 2 and 4.

    btw
    love the bluegrass setting

    There are only 3 tracks. The 4th slider is for FX.

    +1 to dixieland/trad jazz style.

    Perhaps easier - using the current instrumentation, some sort of a march style --- for examples, think about Saints Go Marching In, or Battle Hymn of the Republic, Closer Walk to Thee, Tiger Rag, ... the list goes on.

    thanks- GREAT app.

    +1 on trad/dixie, but I'd be satisfied with any 2-beat something-or-other for now, even a version of the new 2 - 4 style minus the 4 would help!

    As mentioned above, you might find the "Gypsy Jazz" style setting works in many cases when you want a simpler two-beat feel for trad jazz. (I even use it for most Western swing numbers.) However, there are times when a more authentic New Orleans "second line" style would come in handy. Maybe they'll get around to it before Mardi Gras 2014.
    There's two kinds of mistakes you can play: The ones you notice, and the ones somebody else might notice.
