Clicketyclick: Sold to the Devil (PS posted a newly mastered version July 27th)

Xtra Styles 3 contest or not; when i heard the _REYNOSA.STY immediately some lyrics i penned years ago popped up, all about a feller i met. Nice guy BTW, playing keyboard in nightclubs and, for a not to be named here, rich preacher owned local reli-organization holding mass sessions in an old Cinema building.

Reworked the lyrics to a 3/4 beat, and i experimented a bit with a borrowed Voicelive Rack, this inspired by Bob Buford, to create a church crowd type choir background here.

Sold to the Devil © Artspurg 2004-2017 SABAM

For ages and ages, he played his guitar
On smoky rough stages, and real evil bars
Not really that good, he didn't get far
Then he saw the Light, became a big star

He saw his Jesus, his Lord and his Light
No más sufrimiento; una vida so bright
He makes good money, he made a stand
Sold to the devil, in a Christian band

So well respected; the money and gold
Riding a Benz, owns a gold-top of old
Those chicas bonitas, so many around
He saw the Light, oh boy he was found

He saw his Jesus, his Lord and his Light
No more to endure, a life that shines bright
He makes good money, he made a stand
Sold to the devil, in a Christian band

So come and join Jesus, walk in the Light
Start praying in public, smile and shine bright
All this good money, when you make a stand
Sold to the devil, in a Christian band



The style source used _REYNOSA.STY makes it to be probably be filed in the Country dept, though it's more of a folksong IMO.

The BIAB realdrums did not workout alas, regarding the snare counts. This since the arrangement is not actually 3/4, but sometimes has 6/4, maybe even 9/4 measures included. The guitars are BIAB, the great accordion playing & atmosphere too, and bass is BIAB. The latter i had to steer by inserting chords with added bass notes, see picture below. And then added quite a bit of melodic juice. Hopefully it tears down some planned Trump-walls down south (Oops, could'nt resist, being a Bernie fan).

You know...I think I may have met this fellow playing in a Mariachi band down in Denver for Cinco de Mayo. grin

Fine job. Excellent work on lyrics, choice of style, and use of the VL Rack. Gonna go get some tacos and listen a few more times while dancing around the room. Keep 'em coming.

BB cool
