Rabbi Neb ,

All I can say is...WOW!

After already buying four other Session Band apps, I must say that this one is over the top! Having all the Drum fills to choose from is just great! The guitar riffs and backing chords sound awesome too! I wish the original app would come online with Audio Bus, but also realize this company is just experiencing growing pains. If the Blues app is this good, I am sure I will be blown away! I must say that the amp sounds you selected for this app is just great. One thing I would suggest. Can we get some kind of count in before the song begins? I just got this today and am sure the more I use this, the closer to five stars it will get!thanks for all your hard work and creative minds. Also, I am a bassist myself and have been on that eternal quest for the absolute perfect bass sound. I did notice that in some tracks, the bass seemed a bit muddy. Try using an Ernie Ball Sting Ray Five String, which I think is just a great bass. Also, for a Growl type, tight and balanced sound, I love the Gibson "Grabber" and "Ripper"! These basses really lay it down! Thanks for listening. God Bless you all,...Shalom. Benjamin, alias "Nebben"

Great Sounding Loops and once you get the hang of editing...

then things go really fast. It does take a minute to get fast at editing, but that is more due to the Ipad. Easy to export progressions or grooves to a DAW, and between all the different apps for jazz, funk, or rock, there is going to be a Session Band that works for you.

Fantastic and Fun

I really like these tracks, as a songwriter it makes it fun to write the lyrics and be able to edit the tracks to fit my lyrics. Wonderful and simple to use. Also very realistic and natural sound. Highly recommend! Oh and very easy to import into garage band.
