This is a song about the consequences of choosing the wrong influences in life. One of my best choices was to join this forum, and thrive on the influences here. Thank you all. Comments & Criticism of any kind is happily accepted.

Bad Advice

Looking out your window seeing your neighbor's lawn,
the grass seems so much greener on his side, and that unfairly seems so wrong.
Your friend tells you destroy it with any evil device,
but you know if you employ it, you'll be acting on bad advice.

Someone stole your woman as if right from your bed.
They took with her your feelings and your pride, and left you wishing they were dead.
You walk into the gun shop Your friend says, "That one is nice."
But you know that if you use it, you'll regret his bad advice.

BR: Acting with some bad advice could eas'ly land you right in jail,
but using what you have inside you'll never fail. SOLO - BR

END: Listen to your heart, and don't think twice.
"Two wrongs will make it right" is bad advice.


Enjoy whatever happens!

Man, this is grimly intense. That beat... I feel like I'm hiking on hot asphalt. Primary blues with a vastly expanded chord vocabulary. Good stuff.

Hi Marty,

Very lovely Blues, with a splendid solo! Your vocals -as often- are always very pleasant to listen to and always with a humorous twist in them, regardless of the theme. I like that, as I often told you!

The lyrics are moralistic in a way, but it's a good advise to listen to. I agree on that.
I only think that the line "Listen to your heart, and don't thnk twice" needs to be altered in "do think twice".
Not thinking twice usually causes huge problems. See this as my 'good advise' ;-)

As you might have guessed, I really enjoyed your song!

Yes, I really enjoyed this too... Very cool song & video...
Marty and Dave... You guys are da Bomb...
My question is... which is worse..? to give, or to take Bad Advice?
I'd advise against answering that... grin;-)

Cool song, vocal, mix, and super guitar from Dave.
I like your voice Marty and your vocal chain sounds really good on this.
Sorry, I must confess the faces on the video
were too distracting for me. I can't even watch those on AFV....so nothing personal.
Enjoyed my listen very much.
Great job.

I listened on Soundcloud first and got a chuckle ... Then I saw the video and was laughing out loud! It's hard to type when your eyes are watering like this. That was great. I've never made a video, but if I ever do I'll be coming to you for some Good Advice!

Marty,
listening, not watching, so I can focus.
My 1st impression was that I could hear this on a 78 with Lady Day singing.
It's the sort of "done me wrong" song that women do oh, so well.

That said, your performance - slow, calm, not overselling the punch line, is REALLY cool.
Dave's guitar is icing on the cake - as usual.

Fabulous.


Cheers

Man you guys nailed these blues

Everything is so good that it ought to be in the Alligator Records catalog.

Outstanding in everything

PS - I'm glad that I listened this song on Soundcloud before I saw the video otherwise I would have missed a lot of the song due to my L-ing O L!


I just posted a selfie and all of the responses were get well soon!

As I mentioned in my response to the YouTube video:

EXCELLENT! The video is really entertaining too!

A lot of (hidden) craftsmanship went into this for sure!

Haha, Thanks, Mark. Robert Cray insists it's not just 1-4-5 anymore. wink

Thanks, Hans. When you talk like that I don't mind you repeating yourself. hehe Yeah, it's kinda preachy with the morals and all. Each of the verses talks about one commandment or another. Usually if I think twice, the second thought is more selfish. Wait, On second thought...

Thanks, Josie. Yeah, sometimes I think those faces in the video are there to distract from the vocal quality, so thanks for saying you like the vocal.


Enjoy whatever happens!

Thanks to the couple of people that mentioned my guitar work in this song, and thanks to Marty for the invite!

Man, such a great song, was a blast to be involved. And then the video, must have watched it 20 times I think!

Perfect tempo for a really 'blue song' about the blues.

Clever lyrics and an ideal choice of instruments for the style.

"Listen to your heart, and don't think twice.
'Two wrongs will make it right' is bad advice."

Amen bro and only if more folks recognized that.

You have the whole package going here ... cool write, great vocal and bass performance.
Oh yeah, and that guitar man is smokin' with that dark vibe. Seems like we've heard of him.

Great arrangement and mix indeed ... got sort of a swing/shuffle hybrid going.

And the video? Funny and immensely creative!

Two fine productions.

Nice dark blues with a clear message. The hilarious video shows the story also from the humorous angle.
Cool vocal delivery is perfect for the blues. Enjoyed the melancholy chord progression and the nice bassline.
Dave just gets better like old wine smile

Marty,

Killer guitar work right out the gate, given this a chill blues feel (lead and bass). Love the video . . . really compliments the tune. The vocal is great, the mix stellar. Impressive effort!

Stay well—

Deej
