For this track I used several realtracks to get the feel I needed. This is a song of encouragement for someone who has placed very little value on their self worth. I hope it is an encouragement to someone! Lyrics are in the YouTube video. Thanks for listening, Torrey.

Hi Torrey,

Another excellent production from you. There's a lot going on here but it all fits in perfectly. Good message! Your technical skills equal your performance skills. That's a great combination. Super classy all the way.

I saw you mentioned you used a Carvin electric guitar for one of your personal tracks. You may recall when I PMs you about my friend, Buddy Keele who lives in your home town. Buddy is his nickname but his real first name is Carvin ... and yes, his father named him after the Carvin Music Company. I thought that was pretty cool to see you mention that as I thought about my friend.

Again, super job on this. loved the video, too! Wishing you the very best,

Alan & Di

You have another very cool tune Torrey. Love the effects you used with your voice. Gave it a Dire Straits vibe for me. Super vocal and guitar was excellent...

Torrey,

This is terrific music. A solid write. Extraordinary melody! So "musical". Really enjoyed the listen.

Super arrangement and production. As David said it has a "Boston feel" to it - really well done.

There are a few places where the vocal gets "swamped" by the instrument tracks. Might just need the vocal to be raised a bit at that point. Otherwise, this is extraordinary. Really enjoyed it - an excellent listen...

Really nice progression - great production - loved the guitar on "Your Valley" section and really pretty solo. An excellent song.

gospel rock, or pop?
Well, you sure make it sound like a pro.
Very nice chord progression, and cool vocals as always.
In the mid-regions your voice often reminds me of one of the singers of Toto.
should be a compliment I think ;-)

Wow, Torrey, that was quite impressive! All of the personal touches you added really work together to give the song a cohesiveness that I don't hear in every song!

Regarding the guitar harmonies... did you play the parts separately? Or did you use a harmonizer? I'm impressed either way, because in my opinion it's not easy to get good-sounding auto harmony. But on listening again, I'm guessing you played both parts because the two notes don't always go in the same direction as a scalic harmony tends to do.

Parts of the song reminded me of George Harrison's style.

I'm always happy to see songs of faith, and to see people using their talent as a ministry. Good job, and I look forward to hearing more from you!

Thanks for the comment David! For the solo guitar parts I played twin leads and double tracked the primary line with about a 10 millisecond delay on it.

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..."
