I recently have posted some older tracks but this one is fresh. I feel the RealDrums in the BIAB program are the best sounding drums one can use in their project!(For me at least) They alone are worth the price of admission! For this track I used only RealDrums from the program and played all the other instruments myself. This is a Blues/Rock track that deals with some heavy subject matter, but was inspired to put together over the last couple of weeks. Lyrics are in YouTube video. Thanks in advance for listening and may God bless! Torrey

Torrey,

This is really well done.

Impressive that you did all the parts yourself.

Cool opening. Nice guitar work. Cool "figure" at 1:00... had a sorta YES feel... the guitar at 1:40 is exceptional! - all the fills after that are, too...

Nice mix. Everything works. Nice stuff in that bridge...

An excellent piece of music!

Torrey

Excellent piece of music - reminds me of recent Clapton.
Really strong songwriting and great musicianship all round.
Nice vocal effect on the slow part.

Hi Torrey,

Well, Rob has something to say about this:
Such a cool video, you sure have many talents wink

The sound reminds us very much of Donald Fagen (but we think we said that once before).
And that sure is a compliment!

Your impressive musical talents are all on display here - this sounds great played loud! I always enjoy the pop sophistication you bring to your songs and this is one of your best.
Highly professional, sung and played with great feeling.

We think Floyd summed this up pretty good. We watched the YouTube movie ... totally cool and exceptional. You are a gifted player, writer and arranger with terrific technical skills. Congrats on a steallar project. We loved it - and that's the truth! Standing "O"!

Torrey, and exceptional write.

This has a sensational feel, it is vibrant, and musically incredibly strong.

The vocals and harmonies are not any less than absolutely excellent, and clearly a fantastic musical contribution with your instrumentation works.

This song has it all.

We receive user feedback many ways, including our Facebook page, by email or phone, using the Comments tab on our Band-in-a-Box® pages, the My Favorite Things Forum, and more!

Like the great feedback recently posted by Al-David:
"I write and play in quite a few different genres. The flexibility BIAB gives me makes transpositions, from one genre to another, so easy and quick. A number of times I've created a piece, intending it to be a Smooth Jazz or Smooth RnB song. But when I generated the song, it just didn't work in the intended genre.

With a simple click of the Style Picker ... BAM! The song ended up as a pretty decent Pop song. I only had to replace a couple of instruments from the new style and alter a couple of chords..."
(read the full thread here.)

Post your feedback to our Forum - My Favorite Things - we'd love to hear it!
