My last post was titled "Apple Of God's Eye". This song is called "Apple Of My Eye'. It's an instrumental song I dedicate to my grand kids. This is a rework of the very first song I posted on this forum a couple of years ago. It's a Contemporary Jazz type sound. Hope you enjoy it! Thanks, Torrey

Hi Torrey,

I love this style of music and play it around the house all the time. Maybe I'll post a few of them.

This is great! Loved the melody and the tone on your guitar is fabulous! Nice sound all around. That was truly enjoyable listen! BTW ... loved that bridge around the 2:40 mark!

Best to you,

Alan

Torrey,

So I take it you played the solo guitar yourself?
Well, you sure know how to play it!
What a beautiful groove, and such a crystal-clear audio quality too.
This is a very cool instrumental!

Torrey - Kenny said just what I was thinking.

A great listen. Really enjoyed your guitar work (So that's a "processed" acoustic sound?)

We're gonna steal Peter's word "sophisticated" and add ours "classy" to it.

And as floyd asked "processed acoustic?" Man, how did you do that?

It's all so fluid and melodic -- mesmerizing actually but in an energized and uplifting manner.

Great!!

Hello, Mr. Bliss...

In "Apple of My Eye" your guitar playing is so expressive that the notes you played sounded like lyrics being sung. You made it "talk" so clearly that I found myself mouthing words that weren't there, so, at some point I just decided to "scat" along with the notes:

"Dat, dah-dah-dah, dat, doo-doo-dah..."

I didn't notice a specific Real Style being indicated, so it looks like you took the time to search for the tracks that would combine in the most complimentary manner to flesh out your groove and the sound you heard in your head, and it's seamless.

I think the fact that you perform on other musical instruments gives me cause to say for the FIRST time to a "User's Forum" member that you actually made BIAB sound even better!

As other commenters pointed out, the production of "Apple of My Eye" is indistinguishable from what most of us would call "professional".

As the young(er) folks would say, "Man, that cut was tight!"

Sincerely,

LOREN

Yeah! Love that intro! Well crafted composition and great arrangement.

And I love the "pluck" you've captured on your guitar.

Hello, Torrey

Very nice melody!
Super playing! Your guitar is singing very well.
The melody is so natural that it may be sung with lyrics at any moment.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

I don't know about everyone here, but now that I've settled in to our "new normal" I've taken to rearranging and dusting off many things in order to keep busy and productive!

We snagged these gems many, many, many years ago after The NAMM Show one winter. Check out the old Band-in-a-Box logo! Click here...
