The most exciting rhythms seem unexpected and complex, the most beautiful melodies simple and inevitable ― W.H. AudenHow true! The thing is there is nothing rhythmically complex about the mechanical rhythm of drum machines. They may impress for the first bar but after that, the sheer monotonous of them is their downfall. Lost is all those wonderful inner rhythms that drummers develop that play out over many bars as a response to the structure, or musical form, of the song. For that, you need recordings of great drummers over whole sections of music and truly smart arranging to bring everything together. That's what you get with Song Rhythm Tracks.

"Collaboration - The real trick to creativity is not only be creative but to surround yourself with creativity. Creativity breads creativity. That's why I like singing duets. Duets is like running a 100-yard dash. You put someone alongside you who runs a little faster than you and you are going to run a little faster" - Kenny RogersWriting a song? Learning a new tune?
