clickety click: I was Fast

Based on _HOTJAZZ.STY, so it might be a Jazz song entry .... A lot of timing correction edited for the banjo-, tuba- and guitar- BIAB tracks, done in Cubase 8 using audio warp. Only the mandolin track and drumtrack were left unmodded from the original BIAB import. Removed the too busy Clarinet as it was in the way of the melody most of the time. Then added some handmade spice and my good ole 1976 built Sandvik Stradivarius musical saw to boot. Train just passed by accidently. Song is registered with SABAM in Belgium.

Lyrics:

I was Fast, © lyrics & music: Artspurg SABAM 2016

I like getting somewhere, and like it fast
The speed of things a-growing, at a rev count unsurpassed
A needle hit the bottom, and it bent at last
I was going nowhere, from being fast

Problems come as always, and when I duck
To get out of harm’s way
All fell down on me, crushed me on my a-ss
While being fast

Ch: Fast, I was fast, very fast
Then as I passed
I landed on my a-ss
I was getting nowhere, while being fast

If you’re getting nowhere, stuck in the past
Nothing growing showing, nor a thing to last
Down at the bottom, deep down on your a-ss
Then you will go crazy, if you like fast

Problems come as always, some barrier’s up,
Blocks the light of day
But now as I can see, blind from all that was,
Still I like fast

Ch: Fast, I was fast, very fast
Then as I passed
I landed on my a-ss
I was getting nowhere, while being fast
I was getting nowhere, while being fast
Being fast, very fast

Hi fiddler!

Now that was very very enjoyable! You've done a great job composing this and assembling the backing. I've never heard of a Stradivarius saw before! Live and learn smile

Regards,
Noel
