How Replay Music Helped This Guitar Player Learn His Favorite Guitar Solo

Mats has been playing guitar for 35 years. He’s a self-described “guitar nerd”.
When Mats discovered Replay Music about seven years ago he discovered a tool that could help his guitar playing.

Mats like guitar solos. He has a theory that every good guitar solo should contain the following four elements:

1.) The solo should have a good structure, e g start with the lower notes and work its way up the fret board,
2.) It should contain some technically difficult passages without just showing off,
3.) There should be some unexpected tones that stick out,
4.) And it helps if the guitar player has a good vibrato!

Mats uses Replay Music to record his favorite guitar solos and then he uses other software to slow down the recording so he can study the solo note for note.

Some of his favorite guitar players include Jeff Beck, Steve Lukather of Toto and Steve Vai. Mats’ favorite guitar solo is this one by Kee Marcello :

And thanks to Replay Music Mats can now play that solo right along with Kee.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Mats. We are so glad that Replay Music is helping you rock along with the best of them.

Enjoy!

How Replay Music Helped to Make the Perfect Housewarming Gift

Kelly lives in San Francisco. When her friends invited her to a housewarming party at their new apartment near Chinatown, Kelly was at a loss for what to bring as a gift. When she heard that their new apartment had a wok built right into the kitchen counter and she got an idea.

           

Kelly pulled out her PC and fired up Replay Music and started searching the internet for songs with the word “walk” in the title.

Kelly put together a playlist of songs from the 50’s to now. There were Country songs, Jazz songs, Folks songs, old Rock-n-Roll songs, instrumentals and vocals. A little something for everyone. Kelly created a playlist with over two hours of “walk” music and used Replay Music to burn the playlist to CD. When it came time for the housewarming party Kelly gave her hosts the CD with instructions to play the songs whenever they cooked with their wok. Her friends loved it!

           

Kelly heard later that her friends listen to the CD while using their wok and it always makes them smile. They love telling other friends about her clever idea.

Thanks for your story Kelly – we are so glad that Replay Music came in handy – and brought some happiness to you and your friends.

We love hearing stories like these. If you have a story about the way you like to use our products please send them to us at: [email protected]

Five Great Sites for Streaming Music

Every other month or so I put together a list of sites that are great for streaming audio or video and publish the list in our newsletter. Here are five sites that were featured in the March newsletter:

I like having 1.FM on while I am at work. I am a total fan of the 70’s pop station. The songs crack me up.

1.FM

Band of the Day is an adventure – you never know what kind of music you’re going to hear. And if you miss a day – no big deal – they recap the bands they’ve chosen from earlier days at the bottom of the home page.

Band of the Day

I confess I haven’t set up my own station with earbits – instead I like the editors’ picks – always a good listen.

Earbits

8 tracks is my absolute favorite for discovering new music and new bands!

8 Tracks

Thanks to Mixcloud I now have a few DJ favorites that I like to listen to and follow. Always great for livening up my afternoon at work.

And of course all these sites work fabulously with Replay Music. 🙂

How Replay Music, Our Audio Recorder for Music, helped me Discover a New Band

Recently I saw a fun commercial about the NFL draft (don’t ask me why I was watching a commercial on the NFL draft – my husband must have left ESPN on). It was this Deion Sanders Super Bowl Commercial.

I love the song they used!

Leon Sandcastle Commercial

I immediately wanted to hear more of the song they used in the commercial. A little bit of digging and I found the song, “This Head I Hold” by Electric Guest. Once I knew the song title, I opened Replay Music and went to Grooveshark and captured the song and other songs from Electric Guest. I also used Replay Music to get the song on my phone and I have been listening to it ever since. I am now an Electric Guest fan. And being the good fan that I am I also went to iTunes and supported the band by buying the song. All this thanks to Replay Music.

Our blog is back – Hello again! And Hello Again to Replay Music – our great audio recording software!

We haven’t been using our blog much lately – but that’s about to change. We thought this would be a great space to highlight our latest product news, illustrate interesting use cases and perhaps even showcase how to solve some common recording problems.

Let’s start off talking about the latest update to Replay Music. For those of you who haven’t tried it yet – Replay Music is a great tool to record audio that streams online. It works with sites that MP3 downloaders can’t. Like Spotify. It’s important to note that Replay Music isn’t an MP3 downloader – instead it’s an advanced audio recorder that captures the audio that you play on your PC as high quality MP3s. Replay Music also includes a powerful song recognition engine that allows it to tag each individual MP3 it creates with title, artist, album and genre. Our most recent update to Replay Music offer great new features including a fix to the problem some Firefox users were having capturing audio after Adobe updated their Flash player. No more problem. Replay Music once again can create MP3s from any streaming source for all those Firefox users out there.

If you haven’t tried Replay Music recently – this latest version is worth checking out. Replay Music was just certified as a Windows 8 desktop app. So if you have just purchased Windows 8 have no fear – Replay Music will work beautifully for you. Check it out.
