http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9mlkNlKgOsQ

New Soundcloud file:

http://soundcloud.com/dani-lindroos/funky-song-bass-volume

Have a nice funky day all of you !!:))


Cheers
Dani

The style is Fusion shuffle 2 and recorded through zoom H4n to mixcraft 6
And the lyrics to this experimental tune:

FUNKY SONG (Music and words by Dani)

Song,
I´m gonna write a song
a funky song to go with you along
to put a smile on every face
just listen to the beat of the base
with a funky song, you can´t go wrong
and if you don´t share my view
I´m gonna rest my case

Well,
I´m gonna do it well
what I´ll do is not for me to tell
but I will use every trick of course
and bring it all home with a force
and I don´t care a darn too
if it´s extremely hard for me to sell

Hey, what lovely chords do appear to me
Hey, let us transpose a little higher you see

and low

Where,
will I be goin´ from here
there or here or even everywhere
I don´t know where I´m goin´ today
It maybe clears up during the day
and if you don´t hear from me
I´ll be having some fun
with my funk to share

Hey, what lovely chords do appear to me
Hey, let us transpose a little higher you see

and low

Oh,
I think it´s time to go
but I hope the show has had the kind of flow
that you connect with this funky ol´ style
so get your kicks and dig for a while
as I´m not sure I´ll return with a better one we won´t know
Time for me to go……fade away

Hi Dani.

Another song and another chance to show just how versatile you are. From the title, I was expecting the Average White Band, but ended up with Al Jarreau!

Lovely smooth jazz-funk production, just as professional as ever.

Can't wait to see what you do next.

ROG.

Hi Dani
Very relaxing funky song. Who is singing your back up vocals. They add a lovely element.

Cool!! Do you just use the harmony generator to generate the female version?

Dear Jo !

As I am actually a second base
I use my falsetto for the "female" upper voices !
You may know that all male barbershop tenors
use falsetto as it would be absolutely impossible to
reach as high notes as is required by the arrangements
without using falsetto. To my own surprise I have
found out that many bases have very good falsettos and
then there are those guys like Tim Waurick who can sing
9 octaves !! (check him out on utube) !!

Cheers
Dani

Dani,

A song about writing a song. Very clever.
Loved the line "so get your kicks and dig for a while as I´m not sure I´ll return with a better one we won´t know."

I liked the way you put the tracks together, the vox and sweet harmonies too. It has a cool uplifting aura.

Enjoyed it very much.

Hi, Josie !

Thank you for your kind comments
very much appreciated ! I have
always liked this type of music
so I guess I am drawn to it ?
The lyrics are always difficult
for me, but I feel honoured for
your kind remarks on them too !


Cheers
Dani

Hi, Guenter ! smile

Thank you for our kind comments !
Yes, (lol) I guess you are right
in the sense that I can sing bass
and tenor, but the middle range
voices are the most difficult
for me ! smile Yes,I grew up with
The BB:s music running in my ears (Lol) !

Cheers
Dani

Hi Dani - if this was an experiment, then consider the outcome a success! Great harmonies, laid back rhythm, sunny atmosphere.

dani,

This may be my all-time favorite danisong!!!

As a rule, I truly dislike songs that mention "writing this song". But in this case, you wrote the entire song about writing the song - and it works brilliantly!

The bass line is terrific (I think it should be a touch louder - it works that well).

The harmonies are amazing.

Hi, Aleck !

You are just all too kind my friend !:)
You are right, certain sounds are Californian (LOL)
I wanted to put in another soundcloud file instead
of the one you commented on. Will you do the
same comment on the new one ?

Cheers
Dani

+1 here.

I must have listened to this song maybe 10 -15 times before I penned this reply. Mainly because I still could not find the "funky" in the song, OK maybe a baseline.

But what I did find and loved even more with each listen was a heart felt happy trip down memory lane, especially when watching the accompanying slide show.

Bottom-line funky or not what I hear and see are wonderful moments of a loving family captured in time. The feel of the music IMHO cements the love and happiness captured in the photos.

Did I say I like it? . . . well I do.

Later,
