Nice job on this tune. Good topic and well arranged and produced. Might have a touch too much reverb here and there (early fiddle?) for that more contemporary country sound -- but it is a pretty minor point. Nice change into the chorus/bridge. Pretty good singing, too. Excellent mixing of BIAB sounds. This is a good a song as I've heard around these parts.

A really groovy track. Are the handclaps from RealTracks?
I especially like the backing vocals.
Good voice.
Thumbs up.

Fun to listen to. I did notice a change in the tone of your singing at the end which I am not sure helped the song finish up uniformly, perhaps this was intentional. In any event, it's a very good song.

My thoughts also . . . but very nice overall. I love the lyric but I love any lyric that comes from the heart.

Hi somar,

I really enjoyed listening to this. It's very engaging in every way - music, words, performance, production. What a wonderful lifetime gift to give you son.

Regards,
Noel

Yep, it's all said, but also wonder about the hand clap (I don't think is a RT) but it lends a little "(River Dance" type of groove to it.

It’s all been said, super heart felt song with super lyrics and backing tracks. Your vocals ain’t too shabby either, great job on that!

I really like this!

Somar,
Welcome to the forum. Thanks for sharing your music.
I sure liked the song. I especially liked your vocals (both lead and backing tracks). I think the hand clapping was a very nice touch.
We hope to hear lots more from you!

Somar,

I almost missed this and I'm so glad I didn't.

You've got the gift. This is top shelf. What a great contemporary sound. Personally I wasn't crazy about the switch in the vocal and switching into the long ending tag of "baby you've got to help yourself". I think it would've been more powerful to stay with your hook - jmho. But what a great song and production. And I love your voice.

Two big thumbs up here. One of the best songs I've heard on this forum.

Review - Loops-with-Style PAK 2 for Band-in-a-Box® 2020

"Dr. Dave" Walker is at it again! You may remember his recent reviews of both Band-in-a-Box 2020 for Mac and Xtra Styles PAK 9 - now he has something to say about our Loops-with-Style PAK 2 - check it out: Click here to read...

With money being tight for most musicians, this is a wonderful gift for those on a limited budget. At $29, it offers months and years of fun and experimentation, bringing many ideas to fruition as songs with enough variation so that your audience doesn’t jump to "aw, that's a computer!" while still keeping the power of the software in your hands.
-"Dr. Dave" Walker

Thank you again Dr. Dave for the great review!
