This bluesy shuffle style features an electric guitar, piano, electric bass and drums. The guitar plays mostly syncopated chords with lots of ornamentations and bass note pick ups to the next bar. The piano keeps a shuffling bass line in the left hand while alternating between chords, riffs, and trills in the right hand. The bass keeps out of the chord instruments way with just a simple walking bass line. The drums play swirl brushes during the A sections and add open hi-hat during the B sections. This song is in the key of E major and features dominant7 and minor 7 chords. Chord changes happen every 4 to 8 beats.

Mixed in Studio One. All vocals my self

Very Elvisy with the Jordanaires, I liked it. The call and response with the backup voices threw me at first but then I realized you intended them to only be on the first line of each verse. Great voice, nice work!

Elvis does blues! Nice vocals and background vocals.

An enjoyable listen.

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Take me back. A sweet listen to a love-lost song. The band is just great and the vocal and backups put a smile on my face (though I really shouldn't be smiling at this guy's sorrow). Killer end lick too. Much enjoyed.

Rob, what was that synthy/string thing that happened at 1.33 on the left?
1st impression: LOUD
2nd impression: cool
3rd listen - it could do without the thing at 1.33 but otherwise tres bon.
Your vocals are strong, even and sweet.

how am I supposed to carry on"
Like that... and everything shuffles along nicely behind your unmistakeable vocal ( and those backup singers).
Another sad story=good song!

Elvis sings the blues and backs himself up. Cool.

Nice mix and use of RT's to support your always great vocals.

We love Elvis and the blues so this is right in our wheelhouse.

Hey, you need a consumer alert...this puppy is LOUD! Rock on!!!

We enjoyed it!

Nice work on this - I thought it was nicely catchy, and the harmonies are on point. Reminds me of something from the late 50's/early 60's. Some kicking solos too which I appreciate. A solid write!

Thanks for sharing smile

Hi Ray. As this song is tongue in cheek I felt the synth slide added to the vibe.
Thanks for listening and comment. Rob
