This is a "tune within a tune." The embedded tune is probably the greatest blues ever to achieve chart-buster status and, not only that, I believe it was the first time that listeners heard the Fender Rhodes piano, which was quite new at the time.

It was recorded not just by someone long forgotten, but by a titan who will live forever through his music.

Nuff said. Who's going to identify it?

The drummer is an RD artist known, regrettably, only as PG artist #4 (RealDrums BluesBBEven8^, at the top of the list). Whoever #4 is, he or she is one burnin' drummer.

Aleck Rand: guitar, organ, bass.

This one was too easy. But a great listen and great arrangement on Ray's big hit!

Hi Dean,

great guitar!
Ray used to be one of my first role models.
I even wore his sunglasses.

Well I'll be damned!

Guenter, this is the first time I've actually gotten to see you, although this is probably an older picture. Why, you're the spittin' image of Ray at the Fender Rhodes! Shake that thang, baby!

And, of course, thank you for the compliment.

Dean,

After looking at the photo and reading your comment on how much they "look alike" at the "Fender Rhodes" me thinks Santa might want to bring you some script glasses. :>

OK, I got the joke, never rmind.

Hi Aleck
Cant hope to comment on the technical musical aspects of this as it is beyond me but I enjoyed the roaring along groove of the whole thing. Nice stereo spacing on my headphones too.
Ace, Aleck
cheers

Dean,

Love your guitar on this, man! Some cool speed stuff, some sweet melody stuff...

Terrific arrangement and mix - one of your best, I'd say.

Very enjoyable!

Thanks Floyd and Tommy,

I'm glad you boys liked it. Y'know, after a hundred takes trying to nail that thing, I dipped my fingers in cool water and heard, "hsssss..." along with a little puff of steam.

Whew!

Dean,

All I can think of right now is WOW! Are you sure you didn't record this at a slower speed and then speed it up? smile Very nice work on a true classic!

Hey Steve,

Alright, I will admit to using an artificial device without which I could never have played Crankin'.

And, believe me, it hurts to confess this, because I have on occasion swaggered my vanity around saying, "Oh, man, that kind of thing, that's just for kids."

So, OK, I did it: I used a pick.

I know, I've insisted that I play with my thumb and 99% of the time I do. But velocity like that is out of range for my thumb. Wouldn't recording at slow speed and then speeding up the playback produce something like the guitar equivalent of Alvin and the Chipmunks? I remember doing stuff like that with a tape recorder when I was a kid. Doing it in the other direction, I became "the monster from beneath the sea."

But my avatar carries a message: I've always had a "hot hand" on the instrument. There are plenty of players a lot faster than I am, but sheer speed devoid of ideas doesn't cut it - at least, not for me.

I'm flattered by your remarks and glad you liked the tune.

Dean

Hi Greg,

Along with the cookin', throw my fingertips on the grill. Burnt steak, man. But worth it, to hear kind responses like yours.

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows!

There are Notation Enhancements in the NEW Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows! These include:
•A new button in the Print Options dialog which lets you quickly print a "chords only" fake sheet. You can also access this from the right-click menu on the chord sheet.
•A new track type (Drums) is now available for The Melody and Soloist tracks.
•Clicking close to a stave line will put a note on the stave line instead of between stave lines. (Previously, you had to click extremely close to a stave line to insert a note on The line.)
•Double-clicking on the Standard mode Notation window (or on the time line in Editable or Staff Roll mode) plays the song from the current time location. Previously, it played the song from the beginning of the current bar.
•Holding down the [Ctrl] key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
•In The Notation Windows Options dialog, The clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
•Pressing The space bar plays the song from the current time location, not the current bar.
•The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
•The right-click menu in the Editable or Staff Roll mode Notation window has an option to change the current beat resolution. Previously, the only way to do this was to right-click on the time line.
•There's a keystroke entry notation mode - the 'N' mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, up/down cursor to change its pitch, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
•You can now edit any track in the Event List Editor. When The dialog opens, it will show you the MIDI data in the current Notation track.
•You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
