Hi everybody -

I got a plumbing problem. There's been this strange blue stuff oozing up and down from my sink. In fact, the plumber was just getting to work when I started recording this. I heard a peculiar sound but didn't think anything of it. I thought I heard it again midway through recording and I know it wasn't my imagination at the end.

The strange thing is, I live right on the ocean but it's way too cold for skinny dipping. So, I'm still trying to figure out why the plumber's clothes are all in the sink.

Hat. Shoes. Belt. Everything. All perfectly neat and clean. Maybe he's from Finland and did go in for a quick dip. If you the idea is preposterous, then please check out this video, graciously furnished by Dani

http://www.visitfinland.com/article/a-refreshing-dip-icy-waters/

I'm sure that when he gets back he'll be happy to learn that I dedicated this song to him.

BAD BLUE OOZE https://soundcloud.com/aleckrand/bad-blue-ooze

Aleck Rand plays electric 12 string guitar with two sets of Ernie Ball SuperSlinky 0.08's, i.e., there are six pairs of identical strings.

Dean,

Cool stuff. An enjoyable listen. Very good mix on this. Blub, blub, blub...

Nice playing. (Was hoping that you'd give that bass guy a chance to take lead somewhere...).

Well done.

Really enjoyed this one. Especially the glug sounds and the more rhythmic parts. Cheers.

Hi Dean...

Wow...totally loved this! A mix somewhere between Fusion and Nu-Jazz. Super playing and what an arrangement! I could listen to this everyday for a long time...think I might! great stuff, my friend!

Another cooool one! Wonderful playing and a fun creative arrangement. My dog ran outa the room with that very first flush sound...think she thought it was thunder smile However, after the blubs and when the guitar playing started she returned and lay down by the speaker. A border collie of refined tastes. This song was fun.

Hi Dani,

Somehow I just knew you'd come in to cover me. I added that link to the main post.

And, of course, I'm glad you liked the tune, which may not sound like the blues but it is (with every possible weird chord substitution know to man - maybe more!)

Dean

Hi Janice and Bud,

Wow - they say that dogs hear things that we humans can't. And we know how smart they are. That dog figured out before I did that something weird is going on at my place.

I'm glad you liked the tune, which is just a blues but twisted so out of shape with chord substitutions that it may be unrecognizable as such.

Dean

Plumbing may not be your forte, but the guitar sure is!

I remain in awe of your musical talent.

Dean,

Are you sure your middle isn't "Cool"? Cause this song sure is! As always, great musicianship, and a very cool groove to this one.

Hi Dean,

Now THAT was a very eye-catching title for a post.

I've never ever heard "glub, glub, glub" used quite so creatively. What a truly inspired introduction. I'm still laughing smile

There's no doubt about it, when it comes to guitar that leans towards the jazzy end of the musical spectrum, you're unparalleled on this forum. To my ears, your playing streams like honey flowing out of honeycomb - luscious, golden and sweet. Forget the blues, this is golds all the way!

I love these cross-over rhythms that are a mix of 8-beat and 16-beat. Your song has used this interplay perfectly! What I'm hearing sounds like it's simultaneously 4 beats at around 105'ish bpm and 4 beats at around 210'ish bpm. This combination also gives a cut common time feel. Very, very cool.

All the best,
Noel

P.S. I got hypothermia just looking at the video. Brrrrr!

Hi Al and Di,

Thank you. What a supreme and wonderful compliment.

Yeh, it's amazing how far you can stretch the blues. It must be a testament to the sheer durability of the form. If you interpret the changes as widely as possible, I think the blues contains every one of the iconic harmonic transitions known to man: 2-5's both major and minor, 1-4's, you name it. You can even throw in a couple of blub-blubs and get away with it!

Dean

Wow Dean. As a matter of personal taste, I honestly don't care much for what many characterize as blues (with a very few exceptions) but I really enjoyed this fun little ditty of yours ripping it up.

Seriously cool.

Really unique sound on the guitar. It almost sounds like midi guitar at times. Very well done.
