Back to the Blues for this one, Christiane on vocal. Both audio and video links:


Take That Ride (YouTube Video)

Take That Ride (audio only)


The Band:

3783:Piano, Acoustic, Rhythm NewOrleansGospel128 Sw 065
565:Guitar, Electric, Rhythm Blues Monday Sw 065

I used EZDrummer3 to build the drum track.

Marty Straub from BabuMusic is on bass guitar, and I added a couple of additional rhythm guitar tracks and a lead guitar track (Fender strat for those that care about such things wink )

Christiane (Chris) Spruit on vocal.

Mixed in Reaper and mastered with Ozone.

Take That Ride (2022, Chris Spruit)

So many people trying,
to get along
Now that the wind is howling
inside the eye of a storm
Just hold on WE'LL get along
(yes we will)
Stick to the line
Side by side
We’ll take that ride
As long as we keep on
holding on

Loneliness is growing
No one really talks
We cannot take for granted
what's already gone
Just hold on we can’t go wrong

For a lifetime
Side by side
We’ll take that ride
As long as we keep on, holding on

Believe me I'm frightend
They scare the hell out of me
They get away with murder
They lie and they deceive
Just hold on WE'LL get along
Yes we will
We'll stick to the line
Side by side
We’ll take that ride
As long as we keep on
holding on


All comments welcome!

Great job by all involved!
I'm not sure I've heard Christiane before, she has a wonderful voice.

Great to hear. I am still the newbie here, so I have a lot of catching up to do...

Absolutely fantastic blues.

Outstanding vocal and lyrics

As usual super bass and guitar chops

This should be on Alligator Records' play list as it is that good.

Your best to date IMHO

A classic blues rock sound/feel/vibe made so by the parts the trio played.
The kick is a little clicky for my taste but the programming is good.
Nice touch with the delay/reverb blend on the vocal phrase ends.


Cheers

Man you guys are blue, blue, and blue!
Great stuff all around.

I'm not a blues expert but there is something uniquely different in a good way about your chord progression on this one.
Keep the creativity going !

For me there’s no better place in the band than to have one leg in the harmony world and the other in the percussive. Thank you Paul Tutmarc and Leo Fender.

Love the sound: vocals, guitar and mix.

Solid blues, good message.

The pedantic in me can't help but mention that the "eye of the storm" is the place in the storm where the winds are relatively calm - not howling. wink

Good stuff! laugh

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Dave and Crew,
Very strong and timely released tune. Good message and Ace vocals by Christiane. I like how vocals are mixed in too. Marty A+ bass, fits like a glove. Amazing guitar solo! Good package all around. Neat video, especially the magnifying glass part. Two spins, easy listen. Enjoyed it and thank you for sharing.

Misha.

Superb Blues!

Chris sounds great. Terrific emotional vocal. Bluesy. (nicely processed)
Marty's bass is sweeeeeet. Bluesy. (perfectly mixed)
Dave's guitar - delicious. Bluesy.

A close-your-eyes-and-enjoy thing.
Again and again.

Excellent.

Thanks to anyone who mentioned the bass. Chris's voice is so special. What a great day when her and Dave got together for the first time, and there have been so many many great days since. I'm thrilled they picked me up along the way. This is the best ride I ever took.


Enjoy whatever happens!

That bass is exquisite, MARTY!!!

Your conversational guitar is, as always, top tier.

Chris' vocal is superb. Overall, a darn good song and production.

Hi Ray,

The click is something that is hard for me to deal with because I can't hear it myself, my ears just aren't that good. I know it exists however, because you proved it to me a couple years ago smile

Thanks for the listen and comments!

Dave, Marty and Chris,

Once again you have proved what a great blues trio you are! Everyone here is really hitting the mark! Dave, I always am inspired by your great playing! Be encouraged and know that I'm not the only one who recognizes your skills! Marty, you've done such an excellent job once again! I appreciate how you don't try to get too flashy (I know you could if you wanted to) with any of your lines and provide that solid bottom for Dave and Chris! Chris's vocals just cut through and reach the soul of the listener! She is such a great singer! I enjoyed it!

Thanks, Torrey

“For a lifetime
Side by side

As long as we keep on, holding on”

Yes! Excellent lyric and performances!

We always look forward to your posts and this is such a treat. Chris always makes us truly FEEL what she is singing. Dave, your guitar brought that melancholy and yet hopeful feeling even deeper. Marty, your bass perfectly glued everything together “just right!”

Powerful video also, y’all. We were reminded of a sign we saw in someone’s yard recently that read, “Humankind: be both.”

Let’s keep on holding on tight!
