Disclaimers: 1. Music is art, it’s interpretive. So right or wrong, good or bad does not exist.
2. I no longer fill song requests for BeatBuddy users that are getting paid for performing (if you get paid for your time, I should too).
3. How many ornaments did we hang on the Christmas tree before it collapsed?


Nicely done… Thanks Persist… :beers:

ps… Got a chuckle out of your new disclaimers list… Loved the Christmas tree analogy…

Dude, that is awesome! Thanks heaps! I just downloaded the NP StdPBass drumkit to have a listen. I had no idea you could add bass lines to beat buddy!?!? I’m a bass player anyway so I wont share this
information with my bandmates…
I’m a noob Australian, and I dont understand the christmas tree analogy disclaimer, but I’m very appreciate of your work. Thanks again!


Is this the v2 drumset? NP StdPBass 63-91

Also, there are two versions of the song (v1 and v2)? Any reason to use one versus the other?

Thanks for the song!!!

Hey there! I’m a noobie, but I think the v1 has drums only and the v2 has the bass line also if you use the correct drum kit.


resources contains some more links with definitions of the acronyms that might or not be helpful.

Many of the BeatBuddy (BB) users are bass players so I provide DOP (drums one-press) versions so that they can also play bass.
