Technical Stuff:
Yes I Do.MGU
BLANK2s.STY
Added RealTrack: 522:Guitar, Acoustic, Fingerpicking Ev 120

I conceived the song to be duet, but my singing partner never showed
so I changed some "Is & Mes" and rewrote it for a solo performance.
Hope you enjoy it.

Lyrics
Yes I Do © Jim Hughes

Do I love you Yes I do
I really love you Yes I do
There's never been a day I don't count the ways
That I love you
Do I need you Yes I do
I really need you Yes I do
There's never been a day I don't count the ways
That I love you
When I look at you hon
I am sure I found the one
And when you look at me
I know you're all I'll ever need
Do I want you Yes I do
I really want you Yes I do
There's never been a day I don't count the ways
That I love you

Jim,

A really nice "simple love song".

Well sung, well mixed.

Sounds like something The Everly Brothers might have done.

Nice.

Hello Jim,

that's exactly what we (or should I say: our darlings?) need once in a while: a lovely and soulful love song. very nice melody, well-arranged and as allways sung with a lot of feeling. Enjoyed it a lot.

Hello, Jim...

The lyrics of your song, "Yes, I Do", are as simple and as lovingly expressive as a lullaby. Your Real Style and additional RealTrack choices create a sound that is as gentle as a baby's heartbeart, that is open and honest in feeling, and as warm as a hug. This is all sweetness, all of it, the kind of thing you would sing straight into someone's bashful, but loving face.

I think this is the first song I'd heard from you. I hope it won't be the last.

Sincerely,

LOREN

Thanks, Scott... The "singing partner" may have gotten cold feet when she heard my recording booth was a shower wink.

Really well done! Love your vocal performance on this. Really strong, and a lot of sincerity behind it. The hook is nicely catchy too, and that groove had my foot tapping right away. Someone else mentioned a feeling akin to the Everly Brothers, and I actually think that's a decent comparison.

You should be proud of this one - thanks for sharing smile
