...just looking for clues...


« on: October 04, 2009, 09:08:12 AM »

This thread will chronicle a collaboration James (offthewall) and I have been discussing for some time: a blues maneuver wOO

We would like to make it something all forum members can monitor as it takes shape, and we intend to post each track here (as an Ogg Vorbis file) and encourage everyone who feels inclined to make their own mix of the song.

Hopefully, it will help give new forum members an idea of how an internet collaboration is accomplished.

A working title: "Rain on Your Parade" Cool

Poor James...

I laid this wonky percussion track on him... and he actually managed to play a bass line over it!

Here is the sound of a boot toe (mine), tapping on a wooden floor. Now I remember why I gave up on the idea of being a drummer Grin

It's a standard "12 bar blues" layout, in shuffle(syncopated) time.
The tempo is 90 beats per minute.

The first two bars are a count-in,
the second two bars are an intro,
then ten 12-bar segments,
and finally, a two bar finish (outro?).

Once again, feel free to edit and re-arrange these tracks to get them the way you think they should
sound. We are hoping for some radically different productions of this song.

ok all loaded up in Audacity...
Now I wonder, I have the impression that the beat runs behind James playing ? Listen to my mix, straight import of the tracks in audacity.
Is it supposed to sound like this, otherwise no problem I can cut and slice myself, just a question.

 Huh
You're right, Kara,

I don't know what that Canadian has done ......
but all tracks, so far, have the same 'count-in'.
If you line up the clicks then the tracks will line up ......  Roll Eyes

I got some quick and dirty vocal coming up !!!

OK ..... hope that is sorted now !!

Here is the first crack at introducing a vocal.

Picking up on Oren's 'footstomp' drum track I thought that a traditional 'walking blues' bass line would fit.

In developing that theme I went straight into a 'walking' lyric.

Here is a take on the first two verses.   I'm not sure yet how it will develop.
Once again, the clicks should line things up !!   Roll Eyes

Now, I’m just walkin’ … away from you
Yes, I’m walkin’ …. and feelin’ blue
And I ain’t comin’ back … no matter how you prayed
‘cos after what you done to me
I’m gonna rain on your parade.

I’m through with talkin’ … to you girl
The way you done me wrong … you got me in a whirl
I’m gonna give you grief …. you’ll wish that I had stayed
Just keep on lookin’ over your shoulder
You might see me rain on your parade.


 Wink
James

Yes, we are laying down our tracks "fast and loose" - trying to go with the feeling during performance, then tightening things up (according to individual taste) during production.
Right now, I'm in the process of editing the percussion and bass to get a more cohesive rhythm section.

This is a novel idea guys! Cool Just completed my entry for the Autumn review,so I'm wide open for this.
I just downloaded everything that was submitted thus far-but have not heard it at the moment,but I'll have a good listen and give it the old college try.

Wyatt, Thom,
Thanks for stopping in! wOO

Here is James' bass action - edited to include his bet riffs, and time adjusted so the bass and bootbeat line up quite nicely. Load it in your digital audio workstation of choice, and bask in the congruity... Cheesy
