Description
Racerx:
A blues tune improvised off a simple bass line.
Many thanks to RC and Mcboy for adding to the track. They both have the ATTITUDE

RCAndrews:
I'm pleased the two of you were happy with my contribution. i have
always wanted to do something with you guys :)

Mcboy:
i have always liked robs' vocal approach/stylings and
remember saying to him that a collab would be kool....what fun it was
to guest on this track......thanks to racer-x for getting me on
board.....i always enjoy tracks that make me focus on playing a
certain way....its a great way to take on a guitar persona and focus
on the challenge of getting away from personal musical cliches in my
playing....thanks !

Lyrics
i knew this woman claimed to be a friend of mine
should've saw it comin lawd she done it to me many time
first she break my heart leave me hangin on
lead me into the dark n all of a sudden she be gone

can ya tell me how did i get here?
can ya tell me why did i come?
when can i leave take with me my tears?
i gotta find a new place to run

now i'm lookin like one them fall down king
lost control of my soul come a hurricane
got some troll tuggin on my heart strings
who'd a know'd dat little toad could a brung me such a pain

can ya tell me how did i get here?
can ya tell me why did i come?
when can i leave take with me my tears?
i gotta find a new place to run

(instr.)

fallin off any wagon sho'ly put your ass in a bind
dat how it go fo any joe regardless his kind
make da money dat make da bread dat keep you satisfied
don't believe it honey its all just them lyin

no need woryin bout things make no difference anyway
night it run sun it come up another day
things you loved done brung you too much pain
nothin you ever do gonna bring to you much change

can ya tell me how did i get here?
can ya tell me why did i come?
when can i leave take with me my tears?
i gotta find a new place to run

just a fall down king,just a fall down king

Why'm I thinkn' this is sexy...
Didn't know that guys could do bluses and make it have such a sensual feel to it... Some deeply rich textures in each of the instruments, including RC's vox. Everything is nicely melded together, but commingling in ways that might get talked about in hushed tones...

Nice job switchn' up, McB - Nice job fellas. Macca

Great to hear you here on MJ again Rob - wonderful vocal! What else can I say - perfect guitars, and near perfect bass andf drums (there was one glitchy nanosecond). Rob, you must have had a ball. The production is excellent - almost too good for blues ;)
Superb guitars guys!!!!!!!!!!!!
Love it,

Groovy
You guys make an absolutely great virtual band. The vocals are hot, lyrics are just great (especially love the chorus) the bassline throbs and drives the song and the solos are just the smoking of smokingnest. The whole thing is just killer.

I have to especially compliment RacerX on how much he stepped back and let Rob and McBoy shine, because he's a great player and singer in his own right.

Also, Rob, I can't tell you how happy I am to hear your voice. I'm sure you're going to hear that over and over again this week, but it's true.

P.S.
VERY nice song art.
RacerX said 4284 days ago (August 30th, 2007)
Actually...
..we recorded this non-virtually, at RC's bayou recording bungaloo, afterwards Mcboy took us out for ice cream. funny..we all ordered mint-chocolate chip

Short Pants
That's because everyone wants to be like McBoy. He ordered first, didn't he? Did y'all wear capris to the ice-cream parlor? It's hot down there! ;-)
RacerX said 4284 days ago (August 30th, 2007)
hmmmm.
I think I was wearing a cape. I think we all were wearing capes. Mcboy ordered last , mint chocolate chip, and of course, we changed our orders to be like Mcboy

mmm
As soulful as it comes... Sometimes simple bass lines like this lays the ground for such fun to happen on top of it.

To my personal taste I think this piece could use a little tightening of some of them bolts, it may seem a bit loose at some points...

But that is in no way standing in the way of all the goodness that is included along the time line.

Your voice is truly good RC. And the way you have put your words along this one is very likable:)

All guitars and groovy things shows proof of great musicianship.

You are a bluesman
Thanks Thoddi,
I hear you have a flare for the blues. Any 'looseness' in this track is because of me. I think the drum loops are not ideal for this piece. and at least in one spot, a piece of a loop shifted and added to a loose feel.
I think RC and Mcboy performed so well on the track. I very happy thay could contribute ,thanks for your comments and for stopping by!

Sweet!
Delicious guitar sounds from McBoy make this one hum.

RC's *croaking* didn't seem to hurt, either. LOL

Very cool collab all the way around. ;)

...who flies all over the house, here. Whenever something good's coming out of these computer speakers (or my guitars), she perches on my shoulder to give a listen.

Needless to say....

Rob sounds great on this! I suppose blues is a pretty general term. This has the blues feel with a non-traditional blue progression. sort of a blend of blues, jazz and rock.but it has the shuffle beat. thanks for your comments!

Cool Blues
It is amazing that you have the queen of hearts. I remember Gregg Allman of the Allman Bros. was dating my tenant when I lived near San Francisco. He would come around the back of the house and I remember when he was playing one of my guitars, we were jammin a bit. He had a tattoo of the queen of hearts on the inside of one of his arms. I just thought it was interesting that they are world famous for the blues of this type of sound and that kind of style and seeing the queen of hearts.

Rob has the soul of a singer like gregg, very cool-raspy sounding for sure. And of course the no-holds barred electric guitar slinger Mcboy lets loose.

Way to go the both of you!

ce 22
Paul Reed Smith guitar, Santana uses a PRS.
mine is a CE-22: 22 frets, bolt on neck. The more fancy/pricey PRSs have a glued in neck. Great tone, lots like a Les Paul, but sweeter sound and lots of sustain. They have hummbuckers with coils switching so you split the coils and have a single coil tone as well. versitile guitars. great live sound. thanks for stopping by and taking a listen!

Sounds like...
...you spilled some whiskey on the guitar! What a barroom jam this is! Gravelly, lush, a fat (and phat) solo, I could practically smell the cigarette smoke emitting from the speakers (and this in a smoke-free state). Very nicely done.

Lynyrd
Reminds me of Lynrd Skynrd.

Your voice is just right for this track. Frank Sinatra would not feel at home! But you've got more of the feel like Meat Loaf / John Belushi / Joe Cocker. Love that vibe.

The electric guitar solo is just great. Very Pink Floyd.

OK, now I know what this reminds me of. "Smokin' In The Boys' Room" by Brownsville Station, around 1973. Same voice, same attitude.

Great work!
