Roll With the Changes in A – TPBK

REO Speedwagon

I’m calling this a ‘two’ press with bass and keys (organ and piano). All my BB work is for live use. We use OPx for some well-recognized widely appreciated songs that may not necessarily be extended solo vehicles. On those where our lead guitarist can earn his money the well-known tune runs as expected on the first press (in the Intro slot) but I include a loop that as usual automatically follows the main song (in the Main Drum Loop section) and kick in the outro when he’s had enough – hence the two presses.

Thanks to @Bwin for the initial file. I added some keys parts and adjusted volumes and notes to fit the @Phil_Flood kit in A. I use my favorite (and free) CollaB3 organ plugin with REAPER and Phil’s kit comes close.

I use “Press” to start songs and the ’immediate’ setting for ‘cue fill’ on the pedal so the downbeat of the outro comes in correctly.

Awesome! You cleaned it up nicely and I can take a 10 minute solo. It’s actually hard to screw up the solo in this song - (though I’ll never sound quite like Gary R.) Thanks C49.

Glad you approve. Having the backbone you made to work from was critical. Songs like these encourage me to stubbornly persist digging into REAPER. I must have accumulated close to 0.01% knowledge after hours working on such songs…enough to be dangerous.
