This is the second song which I've done as part of my lessons with ROG.

It's a change from the style of the last one, but the blues is what I really like best. The backing has been kept simple using just piano, guitar, bass and drums. The idea is that it should sound like something in a nightclub from a Bogart movie. I'm playing lead and rhythm guitars, ROG is playing bass, the piano is a MIDI supertrack apart from the bridge which Roger played and the drums are RealDrums. I'm grateful to Andy for coming in and doing such a great job with the vocals.

STILL PLAYING THE GAME
No one knows you, you're living in a secret world
I try to help you, but nothing ever seems to work
Changes are coming, but I haven't seen them yet
The road may wander, there's people that you still haven't met.

Behind those cold eyes there's another troubled mind
Stare into the distance you never know what you will find
Changes are coming, nothing ever stays the same
Behind that cold smile you're still playing the game

Don't play the fool 'cos, it's not cool 'cos
Underneath we're all the same
Behind the dark eyes, it's no disguise
'Cos you still play the game

I hope there's enough blues fans out there to give it a listen.

Thanks, Nigel.

No secret here, the cat's out of the bag. Another top notch song and production.

Enjoyed this one a lot.

Cool tune!! Really like the vibe. May have been a little long on the soloing but overall very well done. Vocalist sounded quite good mostly and a little shaky now and then. Good job overall!! Take care. Greg

Hi Nigel,

You certainly succeeded in creating that "night-club-atmosphere".
If you close your eyes, you're right in it.
Cool song.

Regards,
R & AM

Nice one, Nigel.

I've always been a great fan of the blues too and I really enjoyed helping out on this track.

An excellent piece of writing to capture that old-style nightclub feel, particularly as it's only your second submission here.

Keep up the good work.

ROG.

Cool sound and feel to this, Nigel. Very original.

Very well put together. Everything fits right where it should.
Good vocal. Nice guitars. ROG's bass and piano are nicely done.
Can you say what the drums are. They sound great! Very musical as drums go.
Super mix.

Y'all have quite a good thing going there.
Enjoyable. Unique.
