Travel From Louisiana To Spain With This Weeks New Styles!

This week we have new Yamaha Premium Styles that are perfect for cruising through the bayou, or down the river! We've also added a host of Spanish Dance Styles to the Yamaha Style Catalog. Style files are great for performance and practice, and can be useful songwriting tools! The new Styles and many, many, more, are available at Yamaha MusicSoft and Internet Direct Connection.

Country Bayou
A real "pickers" Style featuring the classic I, IV, V progression that is perfect for old HanK Williams tunes. The trumpets in this style bring to mind the rebel country genre with a Tex Mex flair. Think Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, and Kitty Wells, and you're ready to play some 50's Country music! Featured voices include SA2 Harmonica and a Vintage Telecaster style guitar with just the right amount of reverb.

Sing-A-Long Waltz
This is an endlessly versatile English Waltz Style featuring the "EvenBars" Organ voice and the world famous Yamaha Piano sound. The rhythm section boasts a truly premium brush sound on the snare and a warm upright bass. With a nod to the "sweet bands" of the late 1940's and 50's, this Style easily lends itself to sing alongs, dancing and listening for pleasure.

We've also added 5 new Styles to our ever-expanding catalog. These Styles are available in optimized versions, to give you the highest quality file for your instrument.

Disko2 Samba
Funky guitar,a typical disco era string section, and authentic percussion will help you recreate the sounds of Carnaval in Rio! Also included in Spanish Style Style Pack 3

Orch Pasodoble
A firey orchestral double step Style with a melancholic undertone. Featuring traditional castanets, Spanish guitar, violin and bright trumpets. Also featured in Spanish Style Pack 3

Rumba Dance
The Rumba from Spain is a bit different than you may expect. This Style features a similar dance groove to the "Macarena" dance hit. Panned synth sounds make this one extra fun to play with headphones. Part of Spanish Style Pack 3.

Zaphire Dance
Another Spanish Dance Style featuring powerful, symphonic elements, and variable intensity. This Style ranges from very sparse to extremely orchestrated. Also available as part of Spanish Style Pack 3

Spanish Duo Ballad
This Style combines both the rhythm of Bolero in 2 of the variations, and a romantic 6/8 ballad in the others. Beautifully orchestrated, lush and powerful. Also available as part of Spanish Style Pack 3.
