This is another instrumental jazz type tune that I call "Living On Hope". It's just sort of a feel-good type song that I enjoy doing. It's a work in progress (probably a little heavy on compression-SoundCloud's compression affected it a little but I will still go with it for now). I may come back and do it with an electric guitar instead of the acoustic. Hope someone likes it. Thanks for listening! Torrey

Wow, great playing on this, Torrey! Shades of George Benson and Larry Carlton.

The composition and arrangement is excellent! Love the melody, and that change at 2:45 was cool ...

Outstanding!

Super listen, Torrey... start to finish.

Nice melody - I really liked the way you "keep to the theme" throughout. Makes it a "guitar song" instead of "noodling" - really well done.

Nice backing and nice mix.

Excellent.

How acoustics are produced to sound like that is beyond my pay grade but it sounds great. As mentioned it is very melodic and Janice specifically mentioned that it sounds "happy."

So here are two people that do like it....a lot.

Well done.

Very well produced!

Torrey,

Melodic with a great groove and some nice surprises in there.
I wouldn`t change a thing- the Taylor acoustic has a terrific sound in your hands.
Very enjoyable and hopeful sounding!

Torrey, This has some excellent guitar work. It's great the way the recurring melody serves as an anchor. This is a high quality instrumental. Very Nice, Tom

Wow, this tune is bursting with creativity! The arrangement is on point, and I love the guitar work on this. The way your drums are panned sounds amazing too! Technicality aside, I love the atmosphere of the song smile It feels like a disco tune from another planet! Not a thing I would change.

Thanks so much for sharing, Torrey!
