if you use the song function it will add a final flourish at the end with some drums.

Haven’t had a chance to look at your looper links but you’ve given me plenty ‘homework’!
I’ve had a look at the looper links now. Really useful to see what can be done and I can only dream that someday I might be a fraction as good!

Hi Rossco. Yes if you can get the timing right with the song function you get a double drum beat at the end. That must be what I had done without realising it. Not perfect but a lot better than a sudden ending to the outro.

Wow thanks Matt you’ve put a lot of time into this! I’ve been using simpler sequences and getting to know my Trio+ but you’ve encouraged me to try Lay Lady Lay again. I’ll let you know how I get on.
Hi Matt. Got Lay Lady Lay cracked thanks to your help. Still not an easy one to do but worth it in the end. Just have to make sure I don’t accidentally wipe it out now!

@ Rossco01  Thanks for the tip.  I need to spend more time experimenting with how the Trio+ ends song parts. Those end flourishes can help to keep one's place in the song.

@ Sairfingers. Well done with Lay Lady Lay:) 

Some songs are more difficult than others. I'm about to start on "Radar Love" by Golden Earring (another friend request). I'm still not sure how to setup part 1.  Worst case scenario I'll just go straight into the verse or use a guitar pro file. I do, however,  think the drum and bass sounds are better on the Trio+

Here is another vid that shows some more ways to use the Trio+
1. Adjustable metronome
2. Backing Track (covered already)
3. Sustained (drone) note. Good for practicing modes.
4. Silent practicing.  (it shows off the different Guitar FX settings quite well)

There are backing tracks on YouTube with the guitar parts removed:

Apart from the cost, I would recommend the Trio+ to any beginner. I’m having so much fun creating backing tracks for lots of the songs in my Justin songbooks and then playing along to them. I’ve even made backing tracks for my scales (sounds daft but it works). Without realising it, I’m practising more and the variation really helps keep up the enjoyment factor.

I was neglecting my metronome practise as I find it boring, but the Trio+ keeps you in time which is something I need as I have a tendency to speed up as a song progresses. Having said that, I’m using a metronome with it to establish initial bpm as although the Trio+ has flashing lights and you can adjust the tempo, it doesn’t tell you what the tempo is.

I haven’t even got to the looper function yet and that’s the thing I started out wanting!
