Let's Try Some Blues
Let's Try Some Blues on Babu Music YouTube

A song, as Dave says, that tells of The Blues being the singer's salvation. Dave Bell did the mixing and mastering and added a sweet guitar to bring the whole project to a much higher level. I played bass and sang (and made a cover pic). Please let us know of anything we can do to make it better. Thanks!!

Style is _TBLZSLS.STY (Texas Blues 12/8)

RealTracks in style: 1923:Guitar, Electric, Rhythm TexasBluesRockSlow12-8Brent Sw 060
RealTracks in style: 1924:Guitar, Electric, Rhythm TexasBluesRockSlow12-8Sol Sw 060
RealTracks in song: ** N/A ** 675:Organ, B3, Background Blues Monday Sw 065
Dave also added an EZDrummer track.

Let's Try Some Blues

It's a cold and lonely night, and nothing's going right.
I can still hear the slammin' of the door.
No matter what I do my mind cries out for you.
So why can't it be just like before?
There's nothin' I have tried that keeps you by my side.
I've nothin' left so N

The blues has been that friend I'll count on till the end.
When all else fails she never fails to please.
I come on home alone with no time for the phone,
but the blues will bring me swooning to my knees.
When things go wrong all day, I crawl on home to say,
"I need good news so N."

BR: All it takes is nights alone home cryin'
while listening to all those lonesome blues
to bring out the fact that I'm not dying.
So who cares what else I have to lose? SOLO

I wake up now each day, and let the blue mood stay.
It gets me through chaotic don'ts and dos.
It sits inside my soul right next to rock and roll,
and keeps me right in spite of all I lose.
My smile now spreads good cheer when music's in my ear.
So now I say N

END: If I see you on the street just staring at your feel,
if you're swaying without sufficient booze,
I'll bring you to my room to wipe away the gloom by saying N

Very engaging listen. Enjoyed the vocal and lyric - (a bit hard at times to hear the word "blues" at the end of the lines).

Bass was excellent, Dave's Strat sounded great and as ever tasteful, and that cover image is great.

Pro quality all round.

Real blues. 'The singer's salvation' - and most definitely the guitar player's as well!

After this track 'For You' came on and blew me away. Great stuff.

Thanks, Peter. Ever since Rayc pointed out my lisping Ss, I've been over-conscious about the sibilance. He gets the credit for making me better; I get the blame for over doing it. haha.

Thanks, Moto! That pic was taken in Ryholite, a ghost town in Nevada near Death Valley. The statue is from a group of artwork made there in 1984 by Albert Szukalski from Belgium. He got a bunch of locals to hold their pose with plaster-of-paris soaked burlap until dry in the hot desert. Crazy.

Hi Marty,

You are becoming a real concurrent of Chris. Isn't she worried now? Or Dave?
This is a real nice performance of how Blues has to sound! Although I agree (a bit) with Peter.
But you managed to get rid of all the sibilance, so the only thing you have to do is get away from the mike when using the word 'blues'.
I hope Alan and the Captain won't be too mad at me and still try to listen to my songs as well (you are allowed to complain on everything on my songs...).

And Marty, I have one more thing to say something when I heard you singing: it always looks/sounds as if you have so much pleasure in singing and I really like that. It is something joyful in your voice I hear all the time. even if you sing about "but the blues will bring me swooning to my knees. When things go wrong all day, I crawl on home to say, I need good news so N."!

So I enjoyed this song very much,
Hans

Marty & Dave,

Blues. Done right. Of course.

Love the Bass! Love the guitar! And that gravel-y vocal!

Excellent mix. Excellent listen.

Thanks for mentioning the guitar, Peter, and for pointing out that the word "blues" was too quiet. I totally missed that. I think I have it a bit better now wink

This is very cool.
tasty guitar licks, solid hop skip bass lines and shuffling drums really underpin this well.
There's some "crack" at the beginning of some words where you either overloaded the mic or, more likely, it's the compressor & reverb/delay attacking too hard.
Never mind my blathering...this is cool.

Loved the blues Marty and you play and sing them so darn good !!!!. Bass lines were very cool.. Loved this tune. Daves guitar was just perfect for the song. Loved the way he dialed in super a clean tone then brought out some nasty when he leaned into the pick. Well done

Thanks, Chris!

BTW, I just remixed "For You" a couple of days ago, mostly changes to the intro.

A blues song about the genre itself ... can't get much better than that!

At the risk of redundancy you two are always, as Gregg Allman has said, "hittin' the note."

And that covers the spectrum. The fine vocal, guitar and bass performances are packaged in
an excellent mix.

Your photos are outstanding. The cypress tree shots really brought it all home to us two
southerners smile The lighting on that distant light house shot is as good as it gets.

We often walk into the living room and tell Siri to play some blues on the HomePod -- we'd ask her to "try some blues" but we have to say it that way. smile

Most enjoyable!

J&B

Marty and Dave,

Yeah, that’s some sweet stuff!. Nice production work throughout. While I love Dave’s guitar work and your bass work as well, the vocal really makes it for me. Very engaging. Well done, boys!

My best to you both,

Deej
