Description
I heard one of Andrew’s posts a while back, a great blues song, and thought he could help me fix up one of mine. I sent him an old sound bed which was pretty pathetic, but he saw the song’s potential, and offered to redo it from scratch. He went into full production mode and called in some elite troops. He cut a path for the others with a new rhythm track, and Mike was the first to jump in with his drum track. Then Rich got back from Scotland, ready to make music, and sent in an organ track along with some ideas for piano. Chris made his bass track, and Andrew started with getting him and Mike’s drums blended together nice and tight, and the song basically developed on top of what they had. Sigmund had sent in a real scorching guitar solo, and it fell into place perfectly. Once these guys got started it didn’t take long for the drop box to fill up. Everyone thought they could improve their last take, and we had multiple tracks to choose from. My job was easy. All I had to do is sing on top of what they built. And it was pretty impressive watching these guys work, kind of like being in the NASA control room the day of the launch. They’re all very technical and meticulous musicians who know how to present their art. Andrew and I thought about female BGV’s but went with the rough touch. I had sent him some harmonies, and he was able to use most of them on top of his own and Chris’. John was the final musician and gave us his piano, a touch that I’d always wanted for this song. I was very happy with it. The whole process went pretty smoothly, and I think the only crisis we had was near the end where we accidently dumped all the tracks. We were able to restore them though, and our tune made it safely to the launch pad.
Andrew (alackbass) is the ringleader and master mixer here, (Garage Band 9) and I’m real happy and appreciative of his talent and hard work on this song. And the same big thanks to Mike Watkins (kevmikwa), Rich Gray (rgpaddler), John Libby (ktb), Chris Flynn (rok41), and Sigmund (sigmund).

The “Zoners” are:

Terry Pearson: Lead vocals
Andrew Lack: Rhythm guitar and vocals
Mike Watkins: Drums
Richard Gray: Organ
John Libby: Piano
Chris Flynn: Bass and vocals
Sigmund: Lead guitar

And thank you Karen (Magnatone) for your critical ear, and tips for the polishing touch.

Hope you all enjoy it. Peace. Terry

Lyrics
Well I spent my life a wanderin’
And I move from town to town
I’ve been called a no count drifter
And it’s time I settle down
But I gotta roll
Mmmm, them wheels gotta roll
I’ve been places I should not be
But I don’t follow trouble
It follows me

Well I know some of the ladies
And I’ll see them by and by
And if one’s a bit peculiar
It’s sure to catch my eye
But I gotta roll
Mmmm, them wheels gotta roll
In the streets I’m known to roam
But my heart stays parked
In the Loading Zone

There’s a place right on he road map
I circled it with my pen
A little town by the name of Muldrow
And I think I’ll go back again
While I’m on a roll
Mmmm, them wheels gotta roll
I fell in love at a football game
And you know two hours later
I still knew her name

I told her “Baby, you drive me crazy!
Can I drive you home?
We’ll dance to love tunes. Under a fat moon
No one should be alone.
Don’t you let me get on that road
Without your number and area code”

You know it’s hard to hit a moving target
Cupid’s aim is usually high
But now and then I tend to slow down
And he’ll shoot me from behind
But, I’m still gonna roll
Mmmm, them wheels gotta roll
In the street’s I’m known to roam
But my heart stays parked

Congratulations guys - this is just fabulously successful. I've been enjoying the mp3 andrew sent me a few days ago when I gave him these supposed "tips". LOL - well really I said "WOW, this is EXCELLENT!" Thanks for the credit, but I don't think I really said anything helpful, unless you count oohing and aahing! This is a real work of art, a total toe tapper, and will be on my playlist FOREVER!

Thanks Guys
First of all thanks to Terry for bringing a wonderful song to the project and trusting me with it.

Thanks to all the guys in the band. Each individual delivered brilliant parts. Everybody (including Karen) offered great suggestions regarding the rhythm guitar part when I was struggling to find my space in the track.

All hands were also on deck during mixing. Everybody chimed in with constructive ideas. A special thank you to Sigmund. It was his idea to run the organ through a stereo chorus, pan it in the center, then pan the piano and rhythm guitar left and right. It really balanced the rhythm section when I was struggling to find a balance. I would have never thought of that. Thanks for the help Sig.

You were definitely a busy man on this, and I thank you for all your work. Hope we can do another one in the future. T

Never a Problem
You all knew the files had made it safely into my DAW. The nice thing about having the individual files in the DropBox was that you guys could experiment with different mixing ideas. You in no way ever endangered the project. And the wonderful piano track you contributed entitled you to one free brain-fart :)

And as for my "mixing wizardry," each one of you contributed. I can't take that credit alone.

That piano was just perfect. It was something that was in my head when I wrote the song, but I never could do it myself. I'm really grateful I found someone who could. You did a great job. As for the accidental deleting of files, I think I may have been the first offender, and deleted one early on thinking it was just leaving my own personal storage area. So here's my belated "Whoops."

By the point John hit delete most of the parts had long since been imported into GarageBand on my end. I had even copied the original aif files to an external drive. The only things we could have lost were the backup vocal tracks Terry had uploaded just a few hours prior. But of course Terry had those on his computer still. I was never worried.

Andrews mixing skills, among other things he does so well, really shine on this great song. Everyone was on the top of their game when they came to the studio for this one, you can really hear it in the parts.

Another case where the results are more than the sum of the parts, because all the players worked so well together.

Great song, and great work by all of you.

Love it!
So much good stuff happening here. John's piano sets the tone so nicely (expect a call soonish John!), and Terry's vocal is as perfect as it could be for this. Backing vocals are also excellent. Top rhythm section too of course - expected from Mike, but hadn't heard Chris before. Love the organ and lead guit as well (Sigmund rocks!). Generally love the mix, but I'd maybe drop Terry back a little and bring up Rich's top backing organ track.
EXCELLENT stuff guys!

Glad you tuned in Neil
We appreciate the critique. Mike was real finicky on this. He's a perfectionist. That's why it sounds perfect. Always amazed at his art. Loved what Chris did here, and all these guys. Glad you liked it Neil.

Great job all.

You would really be amazed
....if you had heard the sorry little track I brought to them. They tore it down to the foundation and completely rebuilt it. Expert musicians, these guys are. It was a great pleasure playing with them. Andrew is an Arturo Toscanini with a heart. He did a great job conducting the whole affair, and didn't hit us once. Ha! Thanks for the listen and the kind words Shay. T

Thanks for the listen, John
The lyrics came about on an early Sunday morning drive in the country and progressed slowly, (about 3 words per gallon). It would have been a shame not to use them. These guys stepped in and gave them a really nice vehicle to ride on. We appreciate the kind words. T

wonderful!
that opening piano blitz was awesome.
when i heard the groove, i got myself comfy - knew it was gonna be great. cool comping on the piano during the vocal.
Terry - this is truly your style song! you sound great, and every word is crispy clear. ooooo - here comes the lead break - and it's a fever pitch of glorious guitar. spiffy percussion rocks this boat, and that bass is so fine. the chorus with all its manly harmony is divine - and it's paddler blistering out a fine solo! well if this isn't a Swell Song!
enjoyed your efforts - anne
