CAUTION: If blues ain't your music thing and/or you fret over spiders do not enter!



The Video

Audio Only


Mountain biking and hiking our homestead trail often leads to collisions (mostly in the face!) with spider webs…and that gave thought to this write smile

For those not familiar with North America’s black widow spider she has a red hour glass on her belly and has the rather unfortunate habit of consuming her mates who are rather drab in appearance smile And she is quite venomous (in the literal sense).

Thanks to Janice for agreeing to let Bud photograph her trying out a “come hither” expression and then doctoring up the photo! She laughed so much that I didn’t think we had a chance to get the shot.

And big thanks to Peter for the guitars!

Your time to both listen and comment is always appreciated.

Janice: vocal and melody
Peter: lead guitar, rhythm guitars and arrangement
Bud: lyric, arrangement, audio/video production, mix and mastering

If so inclined here’s the techy stuff:

Vocal > FX: Nectar 2
Drums > RD BluesRockWaves / FX: CLA Drums & EMT 140 Plate Reverb sim
Bass > RT 564 Blues Monday / FX: Waves Bass Rider & Waves CLA Bass
Guitar Rhythm > RT 565 Blues Monday
Organ > MIDI SuperTrack / Sound: Logic Pro B3 w/ Blues preset & Logic Direction Mixer
Neutron 2’s masking feature was used on all tracks.

Equipment: Logic Pro X, Rodes NT1 mic & Scarlett USB interface
Mastering: Waves LinMB, Ozone 8 EQ, Ozone 8 Maximizer and Izotope’s Tonal Balance

Black Widow
C 2018 B. Merritt, J. Merritt & P. Fulham

they call me the black widow
i’ve had seven husbands
they call me the black widow
i’ve had seven husbands
look at this web ain’t it grand?

see how it hangs watch it shimmer
i have plenty of room
see how it shines crawl right in
i have plenty of room
i’m needin’ another bride groom

solo

lemme show you my hourglass
cause I know how you feel
lemme show you my hourglass
i know how I make you feel
you’ll make me a fine meal

they call me the black widow
i’ve had seven husbands
they call me the black widow
i’ve had seven husbands
look at this web ain’t it grand?

i’ve had seven husbands
look at this web ain’t it grand?

Wonderful blues !
A great sensitivity in Janice's voice, in Peter's guitar and in Bud's arrangement. Christian

What an hourglass! Spin that web, baby. You know how I feel.

Hot stuff. Bluegrass to blues isn't a trick for Janice. Smokin' guitar and tasty production. A big, fun listen.

Janice, Bud and Peter,

When I saw/heard the preview of this the other day, I said "Holy crap! Wait until this hits the forum!" Everything about this is beyond awesome. Peter's guitar just smokes, although in a calm and controlled way. The man has a great touch and soul for the music. Of course Janice's voice is a such a treat to all ears. And that Bud guy knows how to turn the knobs.

Super!!!

Alan

First of all what a cool video. So well done. this song just oozed the blues. Incredible vocal and backtrack. Peters guitar was just awesome. Tone and angst in the playing was so cool to listen to. Super collaboration. Well done...

Janice & Bud (and Peter F.),

Some very cool blues you have going on here. Terrific vocal and killer guitar work. Just classic sounding stuff. Kudos to all involved!

All the best,

Deej

Thanks Alan. We’ve had time for very few J&B projects this year so we are even more happy that you like this. Peter sent us what was intended as a scratch solo track and we immediately said YES. Keep it!

This, in my opinion, is possibly the best blues song that has ever been posted to this forum, loved everything about it!

Peter just absolutely nails the guitar, absolutely perfect! Great "feel", great tone, great chops.

Love the production and mix on this, Bud, and the lyrics are fun too.

And Janice has got it going on big time!!

Listened on soundcloud a few days ago, enjoyed watching the video this time around wink

Well done guys and gal!

Lord have mercy,

"Let me show you my hourglass

I know how I make you feel"

that's worth the price of admission in itself (so to speak)

gorgeous blues, like a silky Stormy Monday

Peter always plays great solos but this one is my favorite after one listen

and the mix is pro all the way, everything fits and balances so nicely

Fantastic vocal Janice

Awesome!

Kenny

Oh, yeah.

PB&J channeling ABB!

What a sound! The organ is killer. Peter's guitar is superb! Cool bite.

The girl was BORN to do this. There should be a tour in the works. $$$$$

Impeccable mix.

The ear hangs on from the first note to the last.

Good as it gets.

Oh, yeah.

Three absolute standouts in this song: the lyrics, the impeccable guitar, and the velvety smooth Crow Royal voice.

What a tune! I swear Janice's voice was designed for music like this. The whole thing sounds smoky and lush. Both the instrumentation and Janice's vocals carry some major attitude. Got my toe tapping within a few bars too. And it's pretty dang catchy as well!

Great work, and thanks for sharing smile
