Hello everyone,

Something slightly different this week, a bluesy song.

You

This is partly Songsmith, partly BIAB.
The basis of the song was created in Songsmith with the 'Blue' style.
It was exported from Songsmith as wave and imported into BIAB on the audio track.
Next, the following real tracks were added:

BLSW_GS.STY (Blues w/ ElGuitar Solo (120 RS)
425:Organ, B3, Background Blues Sw 120
751:Sax, Tenor, Soloist Jazz Ballad Sw 060 (Bluesy)
421:Guitar, Electric, Rhythm Blues Sw 120
BluesShuffleHard^4-a:Snare, HiHat , b:Busy Snare, Ride

Style used in BIAB:
BLSW_GS.STY (Blues w/ ElGuitar Solo (120 RS)

Hope you like it, and as always, comments are welcome!

Regards,
Rob & Anne-Marie


Lyrics:

You

Oh you, you... my lover, my fate
I want nothing but stay with you
For you, you, I'd give it all, I would
Is this what you want me to do?

'Cause once I dwelled out there
offering love gone bear
Immersing in happiness
Freedom loved, freedom lost
You're my lover, you're my killer, that's true

Oh you, you... my body, my faith
I shall not want, I shall go with you
Now you, you, my beacon, my prison
I couldn't walk the line without you

As we were riding high
Old lovers passing by
Wond'ring where they have gone
or did you slay them too ?
Be my lover, my killer, I owe you

'Cause once I dwelled out there
offering love gone bear
Immersing in happiness
Freedom loved, freedom lost
You're my lover, you're my killer, that's true

This is 50 shades of the Chris Issak sound. Playing this song through speakers brought my wife out from the other room and grab a door knob and start dancing the South Carolina state dance, The beach shag. Lot's of fun listening to your latest submission.

Hi Rob and Ann Marie.
This is absolutely gorgeous! So smooth. Wonderful stuff. Love the lead breaks. The video is also great. I had not heard of Songsmith before. Must look it up. Great work.

Rob and Anne Marie,

That was up to your usual high standard.
Enjoyed everything about it.

Good video; must show it to Dave, the massive spider in my garden shed, maybe we could become friends then. LOL

You are a music production machine and each song is excellent, professionally mixed etc.

Well done.

Alyn

R&AM, I always like anything with a bluesy side to it and this is no exception. I like the write, arrangement, vocals and mix. I do have a small nit. The Tenor sax sounds a little weird tone wise. It is probably just outside the acceptable limits of BPM as it is 60 and the rest of the tracks are 120. At first I thought it was a melodica or some type of a midi track. I actually had to look at the list to figure out what it was. A very small nit in an otherwise very enjoyable song. Tom

Another excellent tune. Lyrics, singing, harmonies, playing all first class. Some very striking visuals in the YouTube video..

Very nicely done!! Vocals sounded beautiful. Love the feel of the song. I thought the blues guitar solo fit perfectly. To me, there was something about the sax that felt too jazzy for the tune at times-certain notes just didn't match the mood. Great tune and mix!! Take care. Greg

Rob & Anne-Marie ...

It's hard to beat a Blues Shuffle in a minor key! And you did this one so danged good! It's a great song and your vocal is perfect.. The quality of your music is always the very best. This was a great listen. Loved the vocal harmonies on the chorus.

Superb song and production! best to you ...

R & AM,

Very enjoyable listen. Love the bass and the lead.

Terrific vocals. Great feeling in them.

Hi Charlie,

We're glad we got your wife out of her chair, but we're clueless about the South Carolina state dance frown
We do know about 50 shades though.....
About Chris Isaak, our (probable) next contribution will really sound like him (says Rob) laugh

Thanks Joanne,

About Songsmith, it's a great program to improvise new songs.
Just sing, any tune, and the program will automatically create an arrangement to go with it. Better even, most BiaB styles are compatible with it. The program is also rather cheap. So I would definitely recommend it to you.

Rob

Thanks Alyn!

Now, how big is Dave really?
By the way, Rob would like to know if you've already used the z3ta for mastering your songs.

I loved it Rob and Anne-Marie. Almost a little Michael Buble swinging in there. Terrific sound. And those harmonies are gorgeous.

Okay I probably shouldn't admit that I just listened more than watched (sorry, I can't help it, spiders give me the creepie crawlies).

Chris Isaak is one of my favs so I'll be looking forward to that one too.

Josie

Thanks Tommy.
And yes.... it took quite an effort to get the right sax real track.
As a matter of fact we used 2 different tracks, the 745 Soprano in the middle of the song and the 751 Tenor at the end (you may have noticed that the soloist at the end consists of partly a guitar track and partly the tenor sax). Rob forgot to mention this grin

Wow, great work. Wouldn't have known you even used BIAB.

Great inspiration, thanks.
