Sultry Sway on Soundcloud
Sultry Sway on YouTube

I once played a whale on bass for a recording of a funky version of Sea Cruise, and it sounded more realistic than the store-bought sound clip. On this one I try a hungry tiger to start the sway. I tried to add a little saliva to his roar. Turns out the bass doesn't do a good tiger.

In my last post Dave kept all the cool BiaB guitars and briliantly added his solo. On this one Dave switched out one of the BiaB guitars and I switched out the other.

Style is _SATISFY.STY (Satisfying British Blues Rock)

RealTracks in song: 1564:Piano, Acoustic, Rhythm IslandJohn Ev 110
RealTracks in song: 4619:Guitar, Acoustic, Rhythm AmericanaGroovin8ths Sw16 075
RealDrums in style:BluesRockEv^4-a:Snare, Open HiHat , b:Snare, Ride
Dave Bell (Blue Attitude) played guitars, and I sang, played bass and added some percussion.

Sultry Sway
I wake alone on my bedroom floor, assess the shape I'm in.
I look around for clues of the crazy night before,
but the room begins to spin.
I nearly take a dive through the TV screen, but catch myself in reverie.
The mem'ries flooding back make me think it's just a dream.
She looked too good to be.

Oh, there's something in the way she walks into the room.
1&2-(It's still there when she walks away.)
3-(It's still there when she wants to stay.)
1-(She looked back at me just to see if I would see her sexy sultry sway.)
2-(She'll mess up my tie when she walks on by, and swings her sultry sway.)
3-(She moved in with me. It was meant to be. And now her sultry sway stays with me.)

The day began and it dawned on me I needed somehow to find out.
Was she really real? Was she really into me?
My answers brought me doubt.
I make my way to where she was seen last night,
and quickly learn she comes in late.
I've nowhere else to be, and I need to see that sight.
So I sit down and wait.

I heard a knock on my bedroom door, and thought it seemed to be a dream.
I saw the doorknob turn and quickly rise to see her sultry sway extreme.
I move to give her room and she slides right next to me
and smiles her sultry smile.
She said she caught my vibes and she had to come and see.
She's gonna stay awhile.

Marty,

Rocking and completely awesome! You and Dave really kicked this one in high gear.

Love the vocal and production on this song - big and in your face!

Excellent track!

Man, Marty! You've really been putting out some great stuff lately. I love the groove on this. You and Dave work so well together. I loved the way you combined that bass and guitar on this one. This was a lot of fun to listen too - the song reminds me of my wife!

Hi, Marty.

Big guitar sound. Nice vocals. Bass does what a bass should. Piano fills occasionally.

This reminds me of classic blues. Sure, there are lyrics that are well sung... but the song is just an excuse for the guitarist to solo. wink

Fun listen.

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

Man, that's a TON of fun. Killer opening. Bass and guitar are upfront, tasty and just SOUND great. Fantastic write and love your vocals. BiaB filled in the rest really nicely. Super mix, too. Fantastic job!

Thanks a ton, floyd. Totally agree with that opening hook. Dave heard what the BiaB guy was trying to add, but he improved the idea beyond recognition. The BiaB guy got a bit carried away later, so Dave redid the whole track. Then added his solo with the same gusto.

Thanks, Bob. This one is more like something I would've written years ago. Now I tend to prefer low gear. But this one was a lot of fun and Dave brought it to life.

Wow, that's great news, Brad. Happy for ya! And thanks for the swell comment --head-swelling rather than Andy Hardy speak. wink

Marty,

Oh, yeah, boy do I love that opening. Killer guitar riffs panned right and then that killer bass riff on the left. It's all good from there, good choice on the arrangement and production. Love that guitar solo as well--sits right where it needs to in this tune. Killer rock blues tune!

My best to you,

Deej

Marty and Dave, this is a killer of a song.
Great intro - a touch of ZZ Top.
Great vocal, guitar, bass, and lyrics all mixed perfectly.

Dance floor filler for certain.
Dave does a fab job and the bass, as expected, is ace.

Hi Marty and Dave,

I listened to this very cool song on YT. As I said; a very cool song!
The song is catchy, the solo -of course- also and I like your lyrics and vocals a lot.
And, there is realy nothing to complain about...
Oh, ... one thing. After that fabulous intro you pushed down the volume a little too much for my ears.
At 2:11 you raised it to normal again...
But it was a wonderful song, again!

Howdy Bapu....

This is my kind of edge on this one....grabbed me right away.
Good judgement using that opening rhythm riff.
Lead vox performed well and Dave's work is stellar per usual.
Very cool cut....I think this is tops in your catalog.

Well done!

Ha! Thanks, David. Yep, those are my favorite ones. My first gig was as a lead guitarist. The only reason I started playing bass is because guitarists need them. wink

Thanks, Ron. I remember pitcing songs in the 90s and producers would always say they want to be wowed in the first 10 seconds. Turns out the most important thing about gettng your song on an album was to be friends with the producer. smile

The guitar riff takes us back to the roots of Rock, the bass is well supported at the back and the video is superb.

Very cool intro. Loved the riff. Excellent vocal Marty. Excellent production. Such a cool groove. Awesome basslines. Dave 's solo took the song to a very cool place.

Thanks for the deep listen, Hans. You're right, it wasn't that I turned the volume down after the Intro; the one-note "tiger" bass was raised for the Intro and all else stayed the same, but it does give it the illusion of either slowing down or getting quieter. The volume was never raised --or lowered-- at 2:11 or anywhere else. Maybe you're missing Dave's rhythm guitar on the right when he did his solo. Such an increase in interest can be percieved as an increase in volume. Thanks again.

The opening with you and Dave lets us know we’re in for a real treat.
Janice said that she could just see the woman sashaying across the room.
Dave’s solo is full of attitude that accentuates that sultry sway too.

Playful piano sounds really good too.

Excellent mix and performance by you two all through.
And a very clever write.

Enjoyed it!

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.
