For the first time since the 70s I don't have a home studio of some sort, so it really bums me out when I can't participate in challenges like the one GuitarHacker had for writing a CORVID-19 song, especially since playing in public is also out. Still, it's great having Band in a Box to jam with –the only instrument that I have available is my bass. Our new home (with studio) was to be completed later this month. Now...? At least we're staying with our daughter, her husband and our 5 year-old granddaughter, which is the best way to stay in shape through these times.

So here is a recent remix of an old blues song (thanks to the suggestions and guidance found on this forum). It's the "album" version, so you might want to bounce out after the first solo or so. Write about what you know, and I know blues. This is my alternative to My Homeless Stay At Home Blues song (unwritten). Stay well everyone.

Style is _BLUESSH.STY (Blues Shuffle Quintet Swing)

RealTracks in song: 2889:Piano, Acoustic, Rhythm FolkBluesSlowShuffleMike Sw 085
RealTracks in style: 421:Guitar, Electric, Rhythm Blues Sw 120
RealTracks in song: 2886:Guitar, Acoustic, Rhythm FolkBluesSlowShuffleBrent Sw 085
RealTracks in song: 565:Guitar, Electric, Rhythm Blues Monday Sw 065
RealTracks in song: 2686:Guitar, Electric, Soloist BluesSlow12-8BrentSimple Sw 065
RealDrums [in Song:BluesRock128^5-a:Snare, HiHat , b:Snare, Ride

I played bass and sang.

I Know Blues

I can't go on with what's been goin' on.
I need you here, but I can see you're gone.
Tell me you're comin' back. Baby, please don't refuse
'cuz ever since you're gone... well, I know I know blues.

The other night, I hear we had a fight.
I don't recall, but know it must be right
because I feel so lost, which means I had to lose.
Well, now I'm lost and lonely, and I know I know blues.

BR: Tell me it's all a bad dream and I can wake up now
to make us some coffee and cream and jelly biscuts, too.
We could go back to bed and take our slow, sweet time to make up now.
Let's go on with loving ways 'cuz I know I know you.

SOLO

I'll give up drinkin' and make you my drug.
I'm tired of sleeping on this (dirty) (filthy) rug.
I want to walk you home (if I can find my shoes)(even without shoes).
I wonder why you had to wander, but I know I know blues. BR - SOLO2

3rdV + My gloomy weather's always under, 'cuz I know I know blues.
I know that lighting looks like thunder and I know I know blues.

Thanks, Dave. Hey, I'd love to play bass to one of your songs. I can add bass parts with my current setup.

Marty—

Well, yes, I'd say you DO know blues—great tune from start to finish, with a cool blues vocal. Great production work on this. Like that bridge a lot; terrific lyrics all the way through, but they are just perfect in this bridge. Killer solo! Very impressive outing!

All my best,

Deej

Thanks, Bob. I'm just a bass player who sings demos, and was never considered a singer. So your comments are very encouraging.

@BabuMusic - This is just great. The mixing and balance of the instruments is very pleasing to the ear. Great voice for blues too. I really like that twangin' guitar in there.

Marty,
I`m no bluesman but I like that gravelly voice and sweet phrasing you have going on here.
my favourite lines:
I'll give up drinkin' and make you my drug.
I'm tired of sleeping on this filthy rug.

The guitar solo is some nice icing too!
Good luck with your future home & studio.

Robert

Hey Marty ...

What a cool blues tune! Man ... your voice is just so perfect for this, And yes, indeed ... you know Blues! Great listen .. doing a little side-to-side chair dancing as I listen. Uh ... it ain't a pretty sight!

great band you put together ... that lead solo is just perfect. Your bass line really drives this along so nicely. Loved it!

Wishing you the best. Be safe ...

Alan

Marty, I love the fact that you threw caution to the wind and wrote new lyrics even though I didn't hear the first ones! These work for sure! You've got a great feel for blues for sure! Enjoyed it all the way! Take care, Torrey
