Lawrence,

Enjoyable song - very catchy - gets ya singing along by the end. Very tasty production (would love to see the RT list - did you play the acoustic?).
Another great vocal (and harmony).

Looking forward to more.

floyd

I like the simple background and rock solid vocals

And it never hurts to have a catch phrase that everybody can identify with

Floyd Jane, here is the list, all RT's: 616 mandolin, 959 Acoustic Guitar, 1143 Uke, 437 Alto Sax older, RD Nash Sw 8^1 snare, ride. I messed around with some reggae (drum and bass) but couldn't get it to blend right. eventually I took bass guitar out all together for some space.

Pat, I auditioned a lot of instruments before I was able to pare it down and go simple.

Guenter thank you for commenting, glad you enjoyed it

This day is better than many that I have had lately because I just finished listening to this fantastic song. The mix is spot on and the vocals and lyrics are super.

Hi Lawrence,

Please add me to your list of fans. This is a really catchy tune. The chorus appealed to me greatly - it's very simple, very memorable, and impossible not to sing along with!

All the best,
Noel

A good bounce along tune with a catchy chorus.....The sax at the end reminded me of Lisa Simpson walking out the door, over the credits, at the start of the Simpsons BRILLIANT in my mind anyway. An excellent way to end the song.

Lawrence,

In your song you took the "Bad Licks" in life and turned this
music into a happy, supportive story.

Could not help but think of "Don't worry be Happy".

Thanks for sharing this upbeat music!

Alyn, thank you, I was always a fan of Lisa and that sax outro, I wouldn't doubt that influenced my ending

FrankB, For me it is more difficult to write the upbeat, uptempo songs. When I do, it is a very purposeful, "I'm going to do this" kind of writing experience.

RealTracks Artist Pat Martino

We are saddened to hear of the passing of jazz guitar legend Pat Martino yesterday.

Pat was part of our RealTracks Artist "Jazz Pollwinners 2" series in 2014. You can learn about Pat and listen to his RealTracks contribution here.

Pat had been playing guitar since he was just 12 years old, and devoted himself to music in grade ten. On top of years of performing (he began playing professionally in 1961), Pat received many awards for his playing, including the "Jazz Legacy" Award in 2016 presented by Pennsylvania State Senator Vincent Hughes and his wife Sheryl Lee Ralph-Hughes.

Learn even more about Pat Martino when you visit his website, http://www.patmartino.com/.
