Afternoon folks, here is a new one from Marty and myself:


The Band:

RealTracks in song: 2729:Organ, Rhythm BluesShuffleMike Sw 130

Marty Straub (BabuMusic) is playing the bass.

I'm playing the guitar parts and used EZDrummer3 to build the drum track.

Mixed in Reaper with plugins from Waves and iZotope, mastered with Ozone.

I generated the images for the video using Copilot AI, and got the video clips from pexels.com and pixabay.com.

Time to Play Some Blues (2024, Dave Bell)

Late night whisky, looking through a smoky haze
you play at night, and you sleep through most of the days
As dawn slowly creeps in, you find that the notes still ring
Stevie Ray said you can't go wrong with some Albert king

Like a whistle blowing on a lonesome train
the blues will take away your pain

you gotta bend those notes, you gotta make it cry
Play with feeling, just like Buddy Guy
Let the rhythm take control, feel the music in your soul
It's got a slightly different feel than good old rock and roll

Like a whistle blowing on a lonesome train
the blues will take away your pain
Bluesy music, rockin through the night
Gonna make you feel alright

We gotta stop messin 'round, time to play some blues
we're gonna have some fun, with some funky grooves
theres lots of great music that you can choose
but to keep it real, you gotta play the blues


Chris should be joining us for the next one, she is now in her new place and has her studio setup. cool

All comments welcome!

Nice groove! Guitar is ripping, bass owns the pocket, and the vocals sound smokey and cool. Like the placement of the vocals in the mix and whatever FX you have on them. All sounds very glued together and hip. Kind of like the Doors if they had a bass player as good as Marty. Ha!

Amen brother! Dave you are the blues/rock king of the forum! Every time I hit play on a track by you and Marty, I know it's going to be something great! You never disappoint!
I not only love your guitar work Dave, but the vocal on this really fits the style well and you did a great job! Marty as always, is killing it with solid bass playing and really sets the table for everything else!

Super!! TB

Hi, Dave.

Cool blues that comes with instructions (and name dropping)! laugh

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

Hi Ron,
Big Doors fan here. As you probably know, when playing live Ray Manzarek played the bass parts on his keyboard. I always thought they would have been a better live band if they had a real bass player, and yeah, Marty would have rocked it for sure!
Thanks for the listen and comments!

Dave,

This one really smokes... Love the rocking arrangement and terrific vocal. Your guitar is also superb. Marty's bass sounds huge and really glues things together. And the video is perfect.

Love this!

A bit faster than your usual blues.
Kinda blues-rock.
Nice!
Right up my alley.
Highlight is your guitar solo, great playing and tone and you can hear why you and Marty are such a cool band.

You two played some of the best blues and it should be on the radio today.
Great guitar tone and as usual chops.
That bass was right in the pocket.
Great vocal.
This line is so true "you gotta bend those notes, you gotta make it cry
Play with feeling, just like Buddy Guy".


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

You’ve got two hallelujahs from the amen corner down here, Dave! 😊

“Like a whistle blowing on a lonesome train
the blues will take away your pain”

Oh yeah! We love everything about this and are you ever correct on your mentions of Stevie Ray, Albert King and Buddy Guy.
You and Marty do them way more than justice in this excellent song with your guitar, swampy vocal and Marty's bass.
And you wrapped it all in a fine mix and cool vid.

Keeping the blues alive and well!

Another great write and delivery, Marty's bass really stood out; big and fat.
You guys are the masters of blues rock.

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.

Hi Dave.

You are definitely one of the forum's elite when it comes to blues.
You and Marty have done a magnificent job with this song.
It is so easy to hear that both of you are in your comfort zone with your performances.
The arrangement and the production sizzle.
As I listened, I could actually see you and Marty on stage performing. It was that realistic to me.
And the vocals... perfect!

I loved everything about this.
--Noel

Hi Dave, great song!

I listened to it when it just was released, but couldn't write what good song it is. Now I did on YT and I repeat it here; great song, cool solo, good lyrics and vocals.
And of course Marty is very good too. I wonder if that man ever sleep. He's always busy with making songs for himself, you, me, a lot of others.
And always quality (and friendly). You both are a good team!

Yes, I would call it a blues/rock song. Thanks for the listen!

The Band-in-a-Box® Flash Drive Backup Option

Today (April 5) is National Flash Drive Day!

Did you know... not only can you download your Band-in-a-Box® Pro, MegaPAK, or PlusPAK purchase - you can also choose to add a flash drive backup copy with the installation files for only $15? It even comes with a Band-in-a-Box® keychain!

For the larger Band-in-a-Box® packages (UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, Audiophile Edition), the hard drive backup copy is available for only $25. This will include a preinstalled and ready to use program, along with your installation files.

Backup copies are offered during the checkout process on our website.

Already purchased your e-delivery version, and now you wish you had a backup copy? It's not too late! If your purchase was for the current version of Band-in-a-Box®, you can still reach out to our team directly to place your backup copy order!

Note: the Band-in-a-Box® keychain is only included with flash drive backup copies, and cannot be purchased separately.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first? If your flash drive (or other USB plug) doesn't have a symbol to indicate which way is up, look for the side with a seam on the metal connector (it only has a line across one side) - that's the side that either faces down or to the left, depending on your port placement.
