The Voodoo Way

©2013 Robert Randall Burke


Well, I can't go
But I can't stay
I can't go
But I can't stay
Lord, that woman
She got the Voodoo way.


For every charm
There's a price to pay
For every charm
There's a price to pay
And that woman,
She got the voodoo way


Late at night when the spirits fly
She comes to me
Makes me want to die.


She put a spell on me
Took my soul away
Put a spell on me
Took my soul away
Oh, that woman
She got the voodoo way.

Resophonic guitar - not sure what that is, but I like it!

Hi Bob,

"Voodoo Way" is excellent!

What really captivated me was the way you used a traditional 12-bar blues format, lyrics and music, and put your own stamp of originality on it - very creative. I'm a fan of 12-bar-blues styled songs because in the hands of a master, this format allows songwriting elegance to shine. To my mind, you have created that elegance with "Voodoo Way".

All the best,
Noel

Eric,

You're right. I cut some lows and re-uploaded the song. Thanks for the kind remarks.

Robert, very cool tune... some mojo blues....

Have you ever played around with the BB styles named "Dr John" ? In this style, and especially New Orleans music Dr John the night tripper had an influence on me back in the day... never a mainstream artist but certainly a voice in the music of that style.... he had enough of an influence for the folks at BB to include his style in the package.

One thing..... I don't like fades.... it's a cop out.... work out the ending.

I really appreciate the sage advice. Maybe you could give me some more tips on songwriting? I'm sort of new at it.

We are obviously biased as evidenced by the number of 12 bar blues that we've posted. I've loved the blues since I heard some of the masters in the 60's. This is a wonderful tune. Thematically it fits right in the blues traditional. I like the rhythm groove that moves the tune with a great feel and not quite what you might expect. You on guitar? Whomever, it works very well. The total package is a genuine "keeper." Hey, you might need a "mojo hand" to hold off that voodoo!

Danny - thanks for the kind words.


Janice and Bud,

I started out in a blues band a hundred years ago, but don't write much of it. (Can Blue men really sing the Whites?) This was just a little fun thingy. Thanks for the nice words.

Bob

as far as song writing tips.... The best one I can give is to join the Nashville Songwriters Association. Ignore the fact that the name indicates country music.... they have people on staff who represent rock and other genres as well.

There is a yearly membership fee, however, you get so much in return. You get access to their video library where there are well over 120 different seminars, all conducted by people who know the topic from personal experience on every possible aspect of the biz from the biz side to the creative lyric and melody side. You also get 12 annual in depth song critiques for the level of song writer you are.... beginner to advanced. And you have a one on one phone-call or in person mentoring session to discuss, in great depth and detail, any aspect of songwriting and or specific songs with someone from the NSAI organization.

Being a member will help you make better progress than simply writing songs in your room. A songwriter is generally not born that way. While some folks do have a natural talent for writing good songs, most people have to learn the art and develop the skills to write well. NSAI is one of the organizations I have been a member of, and the advice they have given has been good.

Then of course, you must write, and write, and write.

At a songwriter's convention back in 2009, I had a chance to meet Jason Blume and Jeffery Steele. Blume walks around with a digital recorder to grab and save ideas. Steel goes into his studio in his home and has a goal of writing one song a day. Of course, most of us do not have the time to do that, but setting a goal to write 2 songs a month minimum would be a good and reasonable goal. Don't fret if you miss writing.... I set that very goal and by years end had written over 30 songs. Of course it's not about quantity.... but by working on quantity, you will come up with a few quality songs from the bunch. That's what makes it worth doing. The more you write, the more the creative juices will flow, and with a bit of education, you start to write better songs.

Hope that helps.

and as far as the fades.... BB has 2 and 4 measure endings. if the ending in the ending in the style you chose doesn't work well.... select a similar but different style and see how it handles the ending.
