Recently our musical brother David Snyder made a post about "Why this forum matters". David made so many great points in this post and it got me to thinking about how it seems that we forum members are on some sort of journey together. I have been around here a couple of years now and I have been noticing how the quality of material posted here is getting better all the time. I believe it's because we are learning a lot from each other and the constructive critiques offered without negativity! This song I dedicate to you, my fellow forum members! I want this one to be an encouragement to you, the one who may be thinking it's time to give it up, to keep on keepin' on. Somebody is being blessed by your work even if you're not aware of it! Thanks for listening and always being an encouragement to me! I am still working on this and will probably re-record the vocals again later (very sore throat) and do some better mastering on it, but wanted to get this message out there now! Thanks for listening, Torrey

I 100% agree with this! Even in the 6 months that I have been with the company I've noticed the growth! It's really fascinating and amazing to watch. I love that you made a song dedicated to this. You did a really great job. A really motivational piece.


Thanks for the share!

Very nice message, and excellent song. Loved the Harrison sounding guitar at the intro - I love the way you layer your music and guitars (which always sound great) - some nice Beatles influences.
Clever and entertaining.

Peter

Wow!!!!!!!! Torrey! Awesome man. This is like the forum theme song and anthem!

Let everyone take heed: More is more y'all. Pour it on in 2018.

You are so right. This forum is like nothing I have ever seen in my life in terms of mentoring--such a phenomenal community. It's like we're all students at some famous music university--learning from one another.

And yeah, the songs by everyone keep getting better and better and better, and many of them are mind-boggling now.

This feels like an electronic community version of the 60s. BIAB Woodstock, 2018. Peace and love and wild imagination and great music blossoming from everyone everywhere.

Bring it on!!!! I love it!!!!!!!

ENCOURAGE ONE ANOTHER.

That's the secret sauce of life, man.

Period and end of sentence.

Rock on in 2018 Peeps!

And thanks Torrey.

1st thing I thought was Traveling Wilburys. Nice stacking of sound layers. Brought in the Hammond at exactly the right time. Subtleties like that make songs sing.

Torrey,
Love that intro - you have mastered that layered guitar sound and this would be great even without the message...which puts this into theme song and daily reminder mode for me.
Really cool, catchy melody; but then I`ve come to expect that from you!
A song as a gift - Thank You!!

Robert

Torrey,

This is awesome! I agree with David Snyder, this could be the anthem for this forum. I totally agree with the message and sentiment of this song. This forum is so supportive and encouraging. Some really great people here! Thanks for writing this and sharing it.

BTW, really well done!

Steve

Torrey,,

What a great song and production. Your posts are always so professional. I have to pile onto the George Harrison references. This is really terrific!

David Snyder is one of the most inspirational people on these forums. he's a terrific guy, wonderful creator of music and always leaves a positive footprint wherever he treads. You've honored him quite nicely.

There's nothing to not like/love about this song. An old, disabled, retired soldier's heartfelt salute to you and David. God bless.

Alan

Very inspirational and well done.

If you keep it inside you’re only gonna grow old".

Amen to that!
Good one Torrey.

Cheers.

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Yep, you are channeling George on this one for sure!

I agree with everything you said, and David's post. Although I've been a forum member for more than 10 years I've really only been active for the last couple. In that time my production skills have improved immensely due to feedback I received from posting my music here.

Floyd did a post over on the Mixing forum about the importance of getting the drums loud enough in the mix, and one of things he said was:
"If you stopped listening to music around 1979 (which a lot of "old guys" did), then you likely don't "get" drums",
and my first thought was "hey, that's me"!
But it's not really me because I listen to the music made here by other forum members, including genres I would never even consider listening too if it wasn't for the forum.

Good post Torrey, enjoyed the listen!

Torrey, The arrangement and the vocals shine through on this one. I love the way the drums change at 2:44. The great care with which you crafted this piece is evident throughout. Pro all the way with a very unique overall sound. Excellent work from a gifted musician and writer, Tom

Wow - you absolutely nailed this one! The arrangement is top notch, and your mixing on this is superb. Your vocals really cut through here, and the whole tune has a wonderful groove as well. Not to mention, this is a wonderful tribute to all the fellow forum members here that make up this online community!

Great work, and thanks so much for sharing smile
