Default Our blues band doing a chick love song.

Recorded this at Pipeline's studio the other night. This is an original the singer wrote. She wants to submit it to the local public tv station for a contest they are running. If they like the song, then we'll go into their studio and record it for airing on the public tv network.

Rough take, didn't do much with the mix.

Once thing that stands out in the video is I need a damn hat. Maybe Brother Karbo can send me his top hat!!

Very nice. She wrote a very cool song. Has a happy, bouncy, Rikki Lee Jones (Chuckie's In Love) vibe to it.

Everything's there as far as what I'd expect from a "live" recording. I hear every instrument. Her voice can come up a tad, I think.

I think you look fine, but if you think you need a hat, choose one. It's on me. Well, it will be on you, but I'll buy it for you.

Thanks Abe.

The song isn't my typical cut of tea, but it has some interesting chord changes and it's kind of fun to play. I like her voice, but she doesn't have much experience singing blues. We're keeping things pretty simple for now, I'd Rather Go Blind, The Thrill Is Gone, I'll Play The Blues For You, stuff like that.

Appreciate the offer on the top hat, they've got some pretty cool hats, but I can't let you spend that kind of money. I think I'm just going to set my clippers as low as it goes and just cut everything off, just shy of shaving it. Visually, we're not too impressive to begin with so no sense trying for something that's not there.

We're hoping to get a take Tuesday that we can submit for the contest, I'll post that take if we get it.

Thanks Z, as far as pop love songs go, it's a pretty good song.

The band is starting to come together. We've got a fifth member, male vocalist who plays a little guitar. He's only played with us a few times but there were times where his voice and her voice together hit on some interesting tones so I'm hoping we can develop that.

We did manage to get some blues in the other night, at least what passes as blues for us.

Thrill Is Gone. Damn drummer can't help but speed up.

Rather Go Blind

The bass player was just noodling around with the bass line and I kind of just joined in.
