Back to straight I-IV-V blues for this one, nothing fancy or clever, just having some fun!

Good Times Roll

Marty Straub, aka BabuMusic, is playing bass on this and in my opinion he knocked it out of the park! Chris and I both love what he brought to the song and hopefully we will work together again soon.

The rest of the band:

As always the entire song was built initially using BIAB.

~675:Organ, B3, Background Blues Monday Sw 065

I used EZDrummer2 for the drum track using a midi pack from Groove Monkey, and I'm playing the rhythm and lead guitar parts.

Mixed in Reaper, mastered with Ozone 9.

Good Times Roll - Christiane Spruit, 2020

Good time Roll
And good times go
I won't let go
I‘ll be there

We all have times
Down, Deep, low
In all these times
I won’t go

Good Times Roll
And good times will go
Down, Deep or low
No , no I won’t go

Bridge/Solo

Good Times Roll
And good times go
When you feel down and weary
I won’t let go

Also up on SoundCloud (sound not as good) here: Good Times Roll on SoundCloud

As always we appreciate all comments.

Well that was tasty! Given the names involved, I expected nothing less. It's kind of strange to have an expectation when you see certain names (high expectations). They deliver in the way you expect in certain aspects (fantastic); but always seem to find a way to surprise you (it's not the same ol' samd ol'.) I hope that makes sense.

Performances, production, TONE, arrangement...you name it. All really great!

Marty did hit it out of the park! So did the other two players on his team! Three heavy hitters on one track will do that.

Thanks for sharing this. So great to hear!

Dave, Chris, Marty...

Oh. Yea.

EVERY part of this is EXCEPTIONAL. Pro level all around.

Bass - Wowser.
Guitar - As good as it gets.
Drums and organ - wonderful as always.
Vocal - Out. Of. The. Park.
Mix - Stellar.

Chris' vocal is awesome. You must have used something new and magical to process it...it seems to be somewhere just above my head AND all around me - bright and bold, sitting "up front" and "tucked in the mix" at the same time. Extraordinary.

Blues does not get better than this.

Dave & Chris + Marty. Very happy you are trying out things! Excellent first collaboration gig! Sounds natural, as I am standing by stage. You as a group can do some kick #ss blues. Perhaps two voices female + male next time ? smile
Thank you for sharing!

What can I say?

The Blue Attitude team continues to set the bar very high. Marty's delivery is exceptional.

This is no exception either. Real Blues, with feeling. Superb.

This is such a well-written song, Dave. The guitars sound perfect, as always, and Chris' voice is a breath of beautiful blues. Man, you guys are fun. Thanks for letting play along, and thanks everyone for the kind words.

Dave,Chris & Marty,
Wow, BlueAttitude has a new bassist- and you three sound like you were playing blues from the cradle!
There`s a spontaneity about this that`s a little different to my way of hearing- more than a jam, but relaxed enough to be a rehearsal. I agree with Floyd there`s something about the vocal quality that got my attention;a little further back, more reverb??
Very, very good.

Robert

Dave Chris Marty

A lovely blues production, all parts work well separately and together.
Dave - some stellar playing
Chris - excellent vocal
Marty -loved hearing a expertly played bass track

Great work all round.

Yes, the addition of Marty to the track really lifted the song up a notch I think. Not that there was anything wrong with the realtrack I initially was using, it's just cool having someone play something song specific instead of a generic bass line.

Thanks very much, Caaron!

Hi Guys,

Raw, basic, aggressive and wonderful.

All the elements which go to make up a classic, slow blues, are in there
and done to perfection.

A powerful backing track, supporting a terrific vocal delivery and in a great blues key - pretty much
my favourite key for playing blues lead.

Loved it.

ROG.

So BlueAttitude tilts a bit more toward the blues side of blues rock for this one!

Man, that's some passionate playing and singing. Oozing soul....

Chris' voice, always excellent, really soars on this one as it seems more
up front in a good way.

And Marty's bass part sits in so nicely. Just the right note choice and nothing
over the top for the arrangement and feel. Makes me wish I'd stayed with
electric a bit longer when venturing out from the bass fiddle smile

And an excellent blues lyric. It sets the mood with relatively few words as we
feel the style should.

Standout!

J&B

Basic blues that packed a good wallop. I had that "feel comfortable" quality about it, but breathed smoke in the vocals and leads. I like Marty's half-step movement throughout...a bit unusual and outside and entertaining in it's own right for that. Good one, guys.

This is blues at its finest!

I am a big blues fan and you three knocked this one out of park. Great backing tracks, guitars (as usual), and a vocal that just couldn't be any better!

You three might want to contact Alligator records. They only produce blues CDs and this is better than many of their current recording artists.

Outstanding song.

Thank you, Floyd! Man, you have no idea how much reading comments like that mean to us smile

For the vocal I went back to the same signal chain I’ve been using for the last year or so (I deviated slightly from that for the last song we did) which is basically the saturation, eq, compression, and de-esser modules from Nectar 3, followed by Waves Vocal rider.

The output from that track gets routed to a separate reverb bus and a separate delay bus. The reverb bus uses the reverb module from nectar 2. The delay bus has the waves delay plugin followed by the reaper compression plug-in sidechained from the main vocal which really brings down the delay while the vocal is active. I control the excessive delay tails via volume envelopes.

I would never claim to be great at mixing but I’m old and retired so have lots of free time on my hands to dedicate to experimenting with stuff :p

Cleverly done, cleverly sung, clever production and it is a basic bold blues with a good three piece .

Thanks

Hey Misha,

Well, I’m a big fan of collaborations as you know after doing a few with you!

Lots of fun, always, and for me that’s what’s important.

Who knows what the future might bring. Marty is not able to record vocals at the moment due to his current living situation, but that will change once the pandemic is over.

Best to you and your young family during these difficult times!

What I enjoy so much about this forum is the unquestioned excellence in music here that should have a much wider audience. This is a perfect example of what I'm talking about.

Everything is what and where it should be. When it comes to the execution of recording technicalities and such, I am little more than an frustrated rookie. But my ears know perfection they hear it. I just heard it.

Chris, Dave & Marty ... this song could not have been conceived, arranged and performed more brilliantly than you folks managed to do. As someone mentioned earlier, whether we realize it or not, we have immediate expectations when we hear/read certain names. I always anticipate a fabulous listen when i click onto a Blue Attitude song. I'm never disappointed. And this one exceeds even my highest expectations.

A tip of the hat and an amazed WOW! to all three of you.

Take car and be safe ...

Alan
