This is a song I wrote and recorded using several Real Tracks from various styles and added my voice and guitar with some additional synth parts and added effects. I feel that mixing tracks from different styles can sometimes produce good results. This is a song about making the wrong choice and having to live with the regret. Thanks for listening. Torrey.

Hi Torrey!

I like this! The guitar parts you added help to establish a signature theme for the song. I also like the synth... it really adds a smoothness to the song that makes it easy to listen to.

I also liked the drum intro. There were a couple of times when the drums seemed a bit busy. Of all the song styles, I think this is one of my favorites... the 70s ballad. Good job!

A great feel and sound. Enjoyed the vocals, and the lyrics and melody work so really well together.

You've put together a great number here.

I noted a similar singing style to forum member Greg Johnson, who always delivers excellent material.

Thanks for sharing. Nice job all 'round.

I'm going back for another listen.

I love this! I will have to try mixing styles. This is exactly the feel and mood for which I was searching on a song of mine. Your mix, vocal and lyric are just great. Good job and thanks for sharing.

Good choice of Realtracks in the mix
It's def. a nice ballad - the little guitar theme is good but does feel incomplete yet quite familiar though it fleshes out nicely in the solo.
Mixwise I think the bass is a little too woolly. It could use a cut in the low mids or something like the Stanford bass tightener -
Cool song and recording

Great stuff Torrey!! Reminds me of the late 70's or thereabouts, one of my favorite musical periods. Great job with everything-arrangement, mix, and vocals. This is the kind of song I'd like to start a road trip with-breezy, inspiring, and just darn pleasant to listen to. As I said, Great stuff!! Take care. Greg
