February 28, 2022  -  User Showcase Song - No Inspiration Blues

Do you ever hit that point of no inspiration? Well..... I can relate. I've been living there apparently.
So I have a bunch of ideas started that seemed brilliant at the time but on second glance... what was I thinking?
I clicked into a new style... bluesy and... this came out in about literally 10 minutes. Even so, I didn't feel particularly inspired...

No Inspiration Blues

The band: all of 5 tracks. Intentionally it was kept pretty sparse. You can hear everything in it.
-Upright bass 531... which, I rarely ever use an upright bass
-Drums... jazz brushes... and again... brushes? Those are for combing hair... this actually sounded dirty and noisy but I realized on a closer examination it was the brushes being dragged around the snare head...
-Dobro... 569... more like a drone track in the back... Doing what it does
-Vocals... me... and it was literally one take and the punches were to change the words.... certainly not for vocal fixes in fact, no melodyne was used on this track.
-Guitar... The Spark amp... I just did a firmware update and waaa laaaa, I got several new amp models and this is one of them. It's called Fishboy and it is pretty sweet when you drop a couple of things upfront on the signal chain and don't make it too dirty. The guitar is my Tele on the strat pickup.
