A guitarsong, although I started out jamming on the bass

Not an easy mix....

Lyrics
Fast Jive

You know it's a goddamned ratrace
It is eat or to be eaten alive
If you can't keep up the pace
There's no way you can make it alive

Right outside your door
You know it's dog eat dog
Right outside it's war
Can't see clear in this fog

It is a high paced life
That we're living these days
And it's not without some strife
That we try to find our ways

Do the Fast Jive
If you want to feel alive
Do the Fast Jive
If you want to survive

KC december 2011

groovin bass line. almost could've been in a (gasp!) disco song. has that danceable feel. loved textures, like layers of guitar paint.

I like the Stevie Wonder groove (Sir Duke, I Wish). But then the distinct KC elements take center stage. Your vocals and that slahing strat sound. Love the chorus changes.

hi Andrew
while working on it I saw similarity with the Stevie wonder song, but what the heck....that song grooved like hell and I hope mine can only stand in the shadow of that song, hehe
thanks for listening

I love the groove this sits in. That jumping bass is a delight! Lush harmonies. Love that sound of those Fenders at work! Much enjoyed.

Thanks
for your kind words
Only recently I started playing on a real bass again. Did that a lot in the past, but the last ten years I didn't have a good bass and did the bassparts on the keyboard and used midi to get the sound.
I noticed that my songs have become more loose :-)

May not have been an easy mix
but you did a fine job on a real funky little groove. Nice vocals. Thanks, I took a copy, and have a good year yourself.

Great groove with warm guitar textures and love the chorus.

thank you
sometimes it's cool to have a lot of guitarparts in different textures to make up one groove...
The chorus was ok this time, although I always want a bridge as well, it didn't happen this time, hehe

What's not to like?
Love that dancing bass line! There is so much going on with all those guitar parts yet they play so nicely together. Really wish I had chops like these.

Very well put together and a song I really enjoyed! Happy New Year!

Glad you like it

tradition of funk
Great song in the tradition of funk like „Earth wind and Fire“. The rhythm guitars are spectacular and nailing it to the point. Its grooving and danceable – absolutely cool.

Not sure if this is real funk, but I call everything that is groovin' funk :-)
Thanks for listening!

JIVE!!
I love Jivin' music! At first I thought Yeah, dig this jive....but then I started hearing the lyrics, and realized that this bass line and the whole thing is a HUGE reflection and perfect interpretation of the ratrace you speak of!! AWESOME!!!!

it's not jive in the usual sense I agree, but it has the restlessness of modern life :-)
Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to listen

Hey Cees!
Thanks for bringing some truly fine music our way; hard to say anything that beats what others have mentioned about this, probably because you handle all facets of your music so extremely well. Another top notch song and performance and was very excited listening to it...thanks again! Happy New Year! Michael

Smooooooth
The composition of this song is very nicely done. Dig the groove of the bass line and the jangly tone of the guitars.

As usual Andrew beats me to the punch - I heard the Stevie Wonder influence as well. Love that bass groove, and the keys and guitar are sitting just right in the arrangement. Nice changes.

thans Dave
yeah, the stevie wonder feel is created by the keys and the drums I guess, just a lucky coincidence. I don't mind this comparisson to the master of groove :-)
Cheers

The bed track has a funky disco element to it ... very cool feel. The guitars are working well in the mix. Great post!

It's a winner
Reminds me a bit of the intro to Stevie Wonder's I Wish, but you then take it in your own direction when the vocals come in. Great tune. If it wasn't an easy mix you've made it sound great, like it was a cinch. (Isn't it always the masters who can make the difficult seem like child's play).

Solid funk groove and I dig your message.

Take care,
Doug
