I LOVE YOU COMCASTICALLY
https://soundcloud.com/mister-gilley/i-love-you-comcastically

The basic tracks are PG’s bossa realstyle B140TB. I don’t think I used the included Trombone track, but it gave me the idea to add some trumpet here and there when I imported the tracks into Logic Pro. There’s also an alto sax way low under the trumpet. I added some strings from another PG style, and some vocal “aahs” to the bridge. The midi tracks (trumpet, sax, ahhs) were all done on a Ketron SD2. There are no special plug ins, etc., other than compressions, reverb, etc. that included with Logic Pro 9.

All comments appreciated.

Gilley:

This song is GREAT. Lyrics, mood, use of BIAB, etc. Really nicely done.

You should definitely do a Music Video of this for youtube. I think it would add even more to the humor.

Mr Gilley

This is really excellent, the style choice works absolutely great, and the vocals phrasing is really well done. The bridge fits nicely.

I really enjoyed listening

Hi Gilley,

very enjoyable.
If only I knew what 'comcastically' means.
(The word you've entered isn't in the dictionary).

For its genre it's a nice song, I tend to like rock over jazz\country so it's a bit hard for me to comment to much

Gilley,

Very clever and well done. The "antenna/and then a" rhyme was brilliant.

You have to be on Comcast Cable to know what he is talking about. It's a love/hate relationship. Very good!!! occ
