A silly little bluesy love song. Had a lot of fun doing this one and I hope someone likes it! Thanks again PG Music for helping me get my ideas into a tangible form!

A damn fine - "silly little bluesy love song"....
Sophisticated, clever and interesting. Great vocal arrangement and some excellent guitar playing - loved the octave section.
Excellent.

Torrey,

There's a clarity to this production that is incredible. Right from the start, the sound was crisp and crystal clear. It made me sit up and pay attention.

Your singing is great and the song is really entertaining. I didn't hear anything 'silly' about this at all. What I head was talent shining brightly in every direction.

All the best,
Noel

Torrey,

This is REALLY nice. A terrific Pop write. Awesome melody (you are SO god at that!).

Your vocal on this is exceptional - one of your best, I think.

Nice production and mix. Super guitar.

Torrey,
A very Beatles sounding blues - maybe a bit looser than the arrangements on your recent songs, but still so catchy (to my ears you own that adjective when it comes to song melody!),
Nice to hear your lead guitar in a different style and the vocal is one of your best.


Robert

Wow - you nailed this, Torrey! I can't get over how well produced this sounds. I wouldn't flinch hearing this on the radio. The harmonies on the chorus are superb, and overall it's just a very well written song. Not to mention, that groove is great! It had my foot tapping within a few bars.

Great work, and thanks so much for sharing smile

Really nice, Torrey! Great guitar work, and your vocals shine as always. Very well written, and I particularly like the progression.

I don't have have time to write down everything I like about this. It is classic pop rock in the Style of Steely Dan. Magnificent chord progression and jazz soloing. Great vocals and harmonies--totally pro.

Loved it man. You are a true artist!!

Silly? Little? Hahahaha!

What so many would give to be able to write and perform and arrange and mix a song like that.

Posters have already thrown accolades at the progression, the write and the performances on vocals and guitar.

We'll only add that this is the kind of bluesy production that can also serve to draw new listeners into the blues...yes to us it's the blues but it has a light and very cool pop vibe to it. Heck maybe that's why people mentioned Steely Dan - but not having listened to them what would we know? Well, we know this is a great production and a wonderful addition to our SC favs playlist.

Yeah - what Floyd said. A big Plus 1. Your vocal is exceptional. You're a "silly little song's' best friend. Loved the casual feel to this! You're an exceptional talent.

I agree also! I also liked the vocals and especially the guitar leads. Great mix!

You are a multi-talented musician.

Two thumbs up.

Customers LOVE Band-in-a-Box®!

Here's some of the amazing feedback we've received lately, from program users just like you!

Arthritic fingers means I find it very difficult to play anything. This program is amazing - and it does use real musicians!
-Bob E.

The power of this program is just unbelievable! It's been a best kept secret for a couple of decades now. A song writer's dream!
-Mike D

This band can practice any time of day ...LOL
-William G

Band-in-a-Box works so simple you could teach a child to do it within minutes - the RealTracks are amazing. Doing an album as we speak. I challenge you to give it a try. I am 60 years old and even though I've played 50 years, I am no engineer. But as a song writer I needed some effective tools to create quality production of my work. This is IT! It's as easy as typing and filling in the blanks. The instructional videos allow you to change settings while watching the pro. I myself purchased every "RealTrack" I could get... Take it from me, don't let this overwhelm you. It is absolutely a writer and solo artist dream!
-John S

Best part of Band-in-a-Box is that it saves me having to program drums, the Real Drummer part of the software is brilliant and natural sounding. I then layer real instruments with guys from my band. As a songwriter, Band-in-a-Box has saved me so much time it's ridiculous.
-Andy B

Incredible Software. Great for ignorance and experts and for anyone who wants to deal with music. If you do not have a hobby and want to have one "Band-in-a-Box" is the best choice. Simple, but if you want to be an expert on it, you need to make an effort to master it perfectly for perfect use. The only disadvantage is if you do not want to become a musician, and use it, you will become a perfect musician. Therefore, be cautious. It's not a toy. ;)
-Ilija B.

Been a BIAB man since '92, such a comprehensive source for music making! So much more to offer than "loops", it allows actual music composition to be realized. Evolve from harmonic ignorance and find out what REAL music is made of!
-Don D.

A must for any musician who wants to improve on his own, or to share his musical ideas in a professional high quality rendition.. You just play with the best musicians and that's great ♪ :)
-Jean-Marie D.

I use Band in a Box all the time. I couldn't be more pleased. It's easy to use and it sounds super-big time!
-Max R.

An excellent tool for generating backing tracks. Saves me hours of MIDI programming. Combines the best of MIDI and live audio samples.
-Steve A.
