Handyman

A little happy ditty. Janice sings and plays the percussion (no drums on the tune - all her on cajon and shaker). Bud played acoustic bass and our music partner Peter played all the guitars (acoustic, electric and slide).

The shaker is a gourd that Bud’s mother used to darn (repair) socks on years ago.

Comments are welcomed and thanks to Peter and PG Music.

Janice:
vocals > Rodes NT1 > Nectar 2
cajon & shaker > MXL mic > Waves JJP Percussion

Bud: acoustic bass > Wave Bass Rider > Neutron 3

Peter: guitar solos — acoustic & electric & slide

Piano fills: MIDI SuperTrack 1800 TexasBluesRockShuffle > Logic Grand Steinway > Waves Unplugged

Piano rhythm: RT 1591 TexasBluesRockShuffle > Waves Unplugged

Harmonica: RT 2855 CountrySwing > Logic ChromaVerb

A really great side effect this forum has for me is that I listen to music genres I normally wouldn't, and more often than not discover songs I really like.
The song here is one of those examples.

J&B...Happy little ditty is right...great tune and hook...everybody really shines on this one...Janice, I love the harmony...you have a great ear as well as voice...not every singer can sing harmony...I think harmony is about your ear not your voice but it sure helps to have a great voice as well...Peter, I love the slide...man you are versatile...very cool and Bud, way to walk that bass...kudos to everyone.

This is a cracker...up, moving and has a very human bottom end.
the human element really makes BIAB shine AND visa versa.
Bud...the thud could settled mud and is exactly what the song requires.
Peter, this is a great showcase for your many skills - you do a fab job.
Janice - solid rhythm, Good Gourd! Melody & harmonies that are ace.
A terrific piece from writing to mixing.

This is very nicely put together! A different approach this time it seems (I didn't know Bud played bass guitar :-)). But well succeeded.

Great vocals (and background vocals!) as always.

I really like Peter's slide guitar. No BIAB soloist is needed here ;-).

Sounds like a fun song to do.
The intro seemed a bit long to me
no big deal.
Very entertaining
made me smile.

Janice, Bud & Peter,

Love the sound of this. Sounds like Janice was sitting in with Dylan and The Band on the Basement Tapes...

Great mix and top notch arrangement.

Loved it!

Hey You Three ...

Ya'll make some dang fine music. Perfect example here. There's more talent here on one sound than should be legal. A great composition perfectly dressed and displayed. Hard not to like some Shuffle Blues played this good. Excellent work, folks!

Thanks, we really do appreciate ALL you said. Thanks too for the bass mention. I (Bud) am gonna brag on my wife for minute. We played in traditional bluegrass bands for years where harmony had to be car horn tight and never even a syllable of unison. So that's where a lot of this came from and almost always her harmony is one take all the way through. Ok here's hoping she might miss reading this as she is so modest and doesn't like for me to do this! smile

Thanks again for the kind words,

J&B

Two handy men, one equally talented woman and the best tool ever made have produced a great rocking blues that surely raises any lost soul smile Sounds great, the piano and the cajon/shaker work very well together. The mix is top quality, enjoyed the guitar solos very much and the singing is heavenly magic again.
