    This arrived from Amazon a couple of days ago. I love it. The Nocturne Brain gets an endorsement in the gear section.

    Are the licks from specific songs? or just generic?

    I want the tab to his take on Trambone.



    It seems based on the original 50s version, but then on the breaks he does his own thing.

    Some of the licks are recognizable, they are not presented as material from specific songs.

    Thanks for the heads up, just ordered a copy :p

    I really like his sound and style and would like to be able to learn stuff like in the video, which I'm sure I've posted before, but what the H.

    I've been trying it for the last couple of days. Not for beginners. The music samples have no lead in, so they start playing before you finish clicking on the play icon.

    I could do with a better media player- I really miss the old Windows one for things like this. The slomo function was really helpful.

    Have you tried the VLC media player? It has a playback speed control and a repeat/loop function.
