Hi Folks,

I'm now in my tenth year on the forum and it's certainly a lot busier than
when I joined, so if I don't get to comment on all the songs please forgive
me - I do listen to more than I have time to comment on.

Although it's ten years on the forum, it's over twenty years since I discovered
Powertracks. At the time, I looked at Logic, Protools etc., but found that
Powertracks was quite easily the best for me and I've been using it ever since.
Although I now have BiaB 2021, from time to time I like to get back to basics
and do something simple in Powertracks and this is one of those occasions.
It's guitars, bass, a drum machine and vocals - half a dozen tracks and virtually
no effects.

Is She Coming Back?
My Baby disappeared about three or four days ago
My Baby disappeared about three or four days ago
Maybe she lost her sat-nav signal and can't find her way back home

It's getting on near a week and I'm sitting here all alone
It's getting on near a week and I'm sitting here all alone
I keep calling up her number but she must have lost her phone

It's now ten days and counting since I found my Baby gone
It's now ten days and counting since I found my Baby gone
She went out to do some shopping, how can that take so long?

Always grateful to anyone who has the time to give it a listen.
Many thanks and stay safe all.
ROG.

Hi Rog,

Nice blues and good use of realtracks. The lyrics are humorous and well suited to the style. Well done.

Kindly regard

Take care of yourself

Yeah! I love this, Rog, great groove!

Fun lyrics, great guitar work too.

Mix is right on the money. I'm hearing some sort of artifact panned left, starts at around 3:01 or so, might want to check into that.

Really good, enjoyed!

York Clearwater Revival?

man, I am totally tappin' my foot to this one Rog!

I think a lot of guys would actually like to live this song. Usually getting single again involves surrendering half a man's worldly possessions in divorce court.

Rog, this is fantastic. I got a Clapton vibe. Super groove, vocal and mix.

Loved it.

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Love it, ROG (and just couldn't help singing along). Mario says Clapton. Yep, but maybe even more of a JJ Cale vibe (who of course influenced Clapton). Great stuff regardless.
Regards,
Leon

Rog,

A foot-tapper right out of the gate. Terrific sound and mix that really gets the head nodding—the drum is infectious and lead guitar is smoking. Strong vocal to go with.

Might have been interesting to do an outro with the singer repeating the title phrase—just a thought.

Excellent tune as is!

All my best,

Deej

Hi Derochette,
My wife doesn't like it when I write sad blues songs, so from time to time I try to write something funny!
Many thanks for the listen and review.
Cheers,
ROg.

Hi Dave,
You're right, there is something there - I didn't pick it up on the monitors, but I
could hear it on the headphones. No idea what it is, but as it appears to be in time with
the music and I'm basically too lazy to fix it frown I think it will have to stay there!
Hey, glad you liked the track and many thanks for looking in.
Cheers,
ROG.

Channeling J.J. Cale all the way man!

Wow...like hearing a lost track by him.

Great vocal and playing. Period.

And hey it's a 12 bar...yeah.

Not gonna parse this out ... just diggin' the live band feel and had rather listen more.

Nice 10th year anniversary indeed!

Hi Pat,
Yes, there's a bit of Clearwater influence in there along with a few others.
Pleased to hear that it got your foot tapping!
I think my pal Eddie has lived this song three times over. smirk Maybe I should dedicate it to him.
Thanks for looking on this one.
Cheers,
ROG.

Hi Robert,
Strangely, it doesn't seem anything like ten years!
It was fun keeping the track count down and getting back to basics.
Pleased you liked it.
Cheers,

Hey ROG ...

Quite a cool song! Sounds like Clapton sitting in with CCR. I'd pay to hear that. I'd pay to hear this , too. But, thanks to PG Music Users Forum, I get to listen for free.

Lead guitar style was a like like Fogerty's. There's some really good music to be made with just "the basics". I played in a four-piece group for a number of years and the basics covered a lot of ground.

As always, your mix was spot-on. Very nice listen, indeed!

Wishing you the very best ...

Alan
