I agree. Developing new styles that are as good as the onboard styles requires musicians and sound engineers.

If you don't value the efforts of people who make great professional quality styles, then you can probably find many of them for free on the internet, but don't be surprised when the companies stop making them. I believe a couple of years ago Yamaha went about 6 months without any new Premium Styles. It looks like they renewed their efforts, and every month or two they're coming out with two new styles.

Hey, again, if any of you R&B people could give me a song suggestion for this Memphis style, I would really appreciate it!

Mustang Sally would work well, but the BluesRock style that already exists is even better. "Get Ready" has that distinctive bass that the style is missing.

Any other suggestions. The style sounds like a certain song, but I can't remember the name.

Speed up the tempo a bit and Barefootin' sounds like it might work.

Not sure if it would appeal to you, Larry, but I find it's very suitable for Midnight Hour (Wilson Pickett) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5KFYUJ63nk8

Tempo at about 113 bpm works fine for me.

Yup. You're right. Works better than the onboard Soul style I was using.
