Lyrics
Ways of the muse

Sometimes I live under stress
In my head it's a great big mess
Music is my doctor
It keeps the pain away
Touching those strings
And play my blues away

Music is my guiding light
In the darkest of the night
Whenever she comes
Wherever she goes
The ways of the muse
Nobody knows

Whenever she comes
Wherever she goes
The ways of the muse
Nobody knows

Dig that!
True, not much more truth anywhere. Cees your keyboard work is splendid. Thanks for sharing your work. The production on your tunes is a standard few can meet.

Great groove!
I've heard a few of your songs at this point and have enjoyed every one of them. Love that laid back groove :) A tip of the hat to bingsolex on the guitar, very tasteful and melodic playing. Nice job on this!

Very cool bluesy song! I love that live drum sound! You can hear the room! Great straight up groove. Again with that soulful guitar! The electric piano on the upbeats works great. Gives the groove a little bounce! Great mix and production (but that's what you do)

Musing
your voice is soothing in this, sounds like a self helper, whatever gets you by, the guitar has a ver Claptonish sound to it, smooth, bluesy and cool!

Very nice!
Great intro, nice bass sound and I love how you build to get into the groove, excellent vocals and harmonies.
Your guitar tone is always superb, love it.
Great combo and thanks again for the download.

The guitar and the grand piano were played simultaneous in one take. We've played together for so long we almost know what the other will do after hearing just one note, lol :-)
Glad you like it!

muse
the production of this sounds bigger, kc. what are you doing differently? Could be the keys. Again you and Bing are becoming quite the duo. Are you two physically playing together, or is this also via the web?

thanks Sam
becoming a duo? hehe, we know eachother for more than 40 years... We both work with the same programs so we can exchange files, which we do sometimes, we live 20 km apart so we sit together and play at least once a week, and we also exchange wav files through the internet :-)
Not much difference in my productional approach, Sam.....
Thanks for listening!

I would of liked to hear this on The Sopranos while Tony's driving around smoking the cigar. Good job KC and Bing.

Jody,
This is so bizar that you say this... At thuis moment I'm completely into the soprano's. Never watched it on tv and now I'm catching up , watching a couple of episodes a day for the last two weeks .... and dreaming one of my songs could be in one of the episodes
Coincidence? Dunno, but it's weird, hehe :-)

I often think my music studio is a far cheaper alternative to therapy. I like Bing's guitar. The lyrics really resonate with me. Great job. Cool picture also.

The Ways of the Muse
Has a bit of a John Mayer vibe to the guitar, which is in my book it a fine compliment, kudo's to Bingsolex (and for having such a cool name). Love the lyrics, well put and very much the way I feel about music, certainly my guiding light much of the time. At least my pathway to sanity and balance. The lush backing harmonies that come in at 3:00 are so velvet-y, nice!

who wouldn't want
this song on their playlist? This really strikes a chord for me, pun intended, music and macjams has been a lifeline for me this past year. The production quality is off the charts, Bing's guitar is like butter, Cees, your keys are too, perfect bass line, great job on the ez drums! Is this the cocktail kit? My favorite song of yours to date, and I love em all! This is a very well crafted song, excellent lyrics! Great writing!

Nice and classy. I mostly enjoy the sound here especially the rather dry vocal track with only slight room on it ... and the beutifully laid back guitar to add on :) Great job!

Usually I don't like too much reverb. For the vocals room is OK with me.. and sometimes a bit more reverb on the harmonies to place them a bit more in the back, that works most of the times..

etherial blues
a little remenicent of Floyd.... I love how the patient guitar hangs over lingering chords... this is tasty indeed... and his phrasing is a treat... he's telling a story... not just showing us "the licks" he knows...

very nice vocal... the whole thing really hangs together so well

There's this cool thing that happens to the groove @ 00:43 1:36 and others later that really makes this glide
