Description
Just a little number I've been playing around with since June. It's kind of rough yet, but I got tired of messing with it so I'm posting it to get it out of my hair, (what little hair I have left), and let Y'all pick it apart for me.

Enjoy

You know that guitar is like...
You know that guitar is like...
...hot liquid silk. Nice horns and organ too, I can tell you took your time tweaking this one, great job!

I guess a song could be like children, its good to just let them go sometimes.

Glad you did in this case

Thanks Tom
Liquid Silk, man that's saying something right there T. I can hear some screw ups in the Organ part, which I'll fix, but not now, But overall I kinda like the pace of it and the feelings it brings out. Now I got to right some lyrics for it and make an honest song out of it.

You right Tom, a song is kinda like a child. Sometimes you gotta let em go so they can mature and come back to ya for the next lesson in life you've got to teach them.

Be well my friend, and thanks again for listening, and the kind words.

Now, as for the song. I'm glad you noticed it, after you tore your eyes away from the picture, and realized there was music playing. Thanks for the great comments Vic and for coming over for a listen my friend, it is really appreciated.

Sometimes I do get lucky Mark
and end up with something that sounds really good. If and when I do, a lot of it has to do with listening to you guys here on Macjams and over on iComp. Taking the advice and suggestions that are so freely given by all of you has made a big difference in my work, and I thank all of your for that.

So yeah, it sounds great, but really it's a collaborative effort, even when I work alone.

Thanks so much Mark for your kindness,

Funny thing about the horns, I couldn't find a loop I though was right, so I stole some from a midi version I had of the Blues Brothers theme some, modified and supplemented them until I had what I wanted.

Thanks again for coming over to listen Micheal, and the kind words. Be well and be cool, and watch out for those Silly hallucinogens!

See ya old friend

First rate arrangement and production. All the parts are great in themselves, but the whole is definitely more then the sum of the parts. The guitar is as expressive as a voice.
Great job.

Thanks Dave
I'm glad you enjoyed the music and I appreciate the kind words n it.

When you said "The guitar is as expressive as a voice." you weren't kidding. There's one point right there near the beginning where I could swear the Guitar actually says something, and it's kind of eerie sounding. But it passes and the guitar starts to sound like a "normal" guitar from there on. It's a bit spooky if you ask me, and I'm the one who played it.

Anyway, thanks again for listening and for the kind words.

It all comes from the soul my friend, and how much of yourself you are willing to share with the world in general, and your friends and loved ones in particular.

It really is true, what you give you get back many times over. What you take, will be taken from you by that same measure. It's the law of the Universe my friend.

Thanks for listening Mikki. Always special for me when you leave me words about one of my songs.

Damn me...
just as I get to thinking I have a vague notion about how to do some Blues, something like this comes along and I have to go away and sit in a darkened room muttering 'curses'.Lol, But I guess that is what is so great about Blues there is so much diversity available in what is such a potentially limited format,you would think what with only three chords and a layed down pattern, call, return etc.Great tone,tune and smooth playing,nice one...perhaps I could do with more junk in my studio.....cheers, Chris

Playing around...
INDEED!. Ed, while this is reminiscent of lots of blues-type numbers, it has such a cool and unique swing to it that it's impossible to resist. Love the organ! There is just the right amt. of sleeze in this track, and you have mixed it beautifully, too. Have a BIG sound to it. [That brass!!! and the repeated chords on the keyboard...Wow. Great touches and very well played throughout. Now slam on a major 7th chord with a bunch o' tremulo by the whole band at the end and that'll be the stinger you need.
Just love it...
Peace.

Thanks John
Actually, on this one everything except the drums is me, and I even programmed a fair amount of those.

The Horns are midi that I programmed as well as the organ. Actually, on the organ I played it into midi first on the SY99 and then did a little cleanup and tweaking here and there. The Bass line is a combination of software instrument loops with some special tweaking on my part. So I guess what I didn't actually play, I programmed.

thanks for listening John, glad you enjoyed the ride man. Thanks again for the kind words.

This has a nice swinging coolness to it...
Natural, full, but not ever busy or overcrowded.... Maybe at some point you'll wake up in the middle of the night singing words to it, which would be neat, but in the meantime this is a very neat groove...

I particularly enjoy the guitar playing and the organ...

Thanks Stephen
I'm glad you came to listen and found something to like about this piece. I've been working on a new version, with a new ending and some other improvements, but I don't plan on posting it any time soon.
Thanks again for the kind words my friend. I hope all is well in London and you're enjoying the Fall weather.

Be well and be cool,

Ed

Thank you Mark
J. J. Cale, that's quite a compliment my friend, and I really appreciate it. I'm glad you enjoyed the song and sent those kind words my way Mark. Sometimes I just get in the mood to just relax and let it out.

Thanks again Mark, be well and be cool,

Thank you Tim
It's a little short for a jam, but I kinda of like it that way for posting. In a live gig, this could go on for a long time, special with the horn players taking a turn on the lead.

Thanks for listening tim and for the kind words, glad you enjoyed the ride.

Sing it! (with your guitar or maybe add vox)
Well sung, Ed --on guitar for now... but I can imagine you adding vox someday, maybe in a higher register, with some "sweat" in your delivery like old 60s R&B and blues. That'd be the icing on this Genie-cake. As-is, it's nice to hear you break out some leads, and the mix is fine. Now to the important topic: Barbara Eden...

Barbara Eden is a classic Genie. As for the song, who cares, I want my Genie !

Someday I'll drop back into this mode, and it will all come together, lyrics, music and production. For now I'll let it sit for a while.

Thanks for the listen B, glad you liked the sound of it.

Gonna check out the one you sent here in a little while. Get back to ya on that one.

Thanks for listening Richard
Glad you enjoyed the music, and appreciate the kind words on it. Like I said to Bob6, above, one of these days the words, music, and production will all come together at the same time in the same place. That's when I'll finish it.

Thanks again Richard.
