Description
Ed

Here's a bluesy rocker  dedicated to the fairer ones, the ones who never let you down. This one's for all the good-time girls.

This slab of virtual vinyl has been simmering in the slow-cooker for about a month and a half. I sent Bob the tune as an instrumental. After we decided on the attitude and direction, I penned the lyrics and provided all Bob needed to slather-on the guitar sauce.

Then we spent about 2 weeks tweaking the mix to get it just right by emailing suggestions back and forth until we were satisfied with the mix.

Ed "SloParts" Wemmerus: Words and music, vocals, bass, drums, organ, synths, mix and production
Bob "6stringer" Sperber: Rhythm and lead guitars (Hofner Jazzica, Fender Strat Plus) and ears.


Bob

Ed did the heavy lifting, but asked me to share credit here. 


It's Rock with attitude, We hope you enjoy the ride.

Thanks Feter
Bob did a great job on all the guitar parts, and he was also instrumental (no pun intended) it getting the mix just right.

I'd do a mix, send it to Bob and he'd listen and send back suggestions on the mix. We went back and forth like that for nearly 2 weeks as we each did out little tweaks to the mix until we both agreed it was the one we wanted.

Did I mention he did an awesome job on the Guitar parts. I think I did.

Well it all came together, and I'd like to thank you from both of us for the kind words, and for coming over to listen. It is very much appreciated my friend.

Be well and be cool Feter,

Ed

Thank youse!
Feter, no words are sweeter to a 50 year-old teenager than "rockin!" Rock you back, brother! There is not more rewarding a collaber than one who is both a musician and a Logic ace, and who has an open mind to not just tolerate but encourage the kind of back-and-forth feedback Ed did. He made the song, and made it good; I made it noisy! And man, did I have fun doing it. HEAR THAT, iBROTHER ED?

Cool!
Good one guys! I like a lot of things about this one. All the instrumental parts are interesting and well played.
The production is right on. I love the Johnny Winter-esque guitar soloing. The bridge is awesome.
I agree with Feter, this one rocks. Applause!

Really glad you came over to listen and found something to like. We worked on it for quite a while tweaking it to try and make it as good as we could. I'm pretty happy with it, and glad to see you are too.

The Rock
Thanks a million for having the vision to know how to use my stuck-in-the'70s chops! Working with you is perfectly obsessive; we're starting to understand each others' verbal shorthand (even as you decipher my e-mail longhand).

With so much packed into this song, I'm glad I didn't mix it - I simply couldn't have done the job. There will forever be a million possibilities regarding levels on this track and that. Or whether we should have turned up or down the rhythm tracks. Or if we did the right thing letting the left & right lead guitars step all over each others' lines to simulate a live "duel," vs. cordon them off from each other more in a conventional clean studio mix. I'm glad we opted for the fun "live" feel. And I'm confident it was a valid choice because YOU, Ed, are THE ROCK.

BTW I just had to "favorite" this because I see it as a compliment to Ed. (Thought I should clarify that since I'm a collab-er.)

More fun than should be allowed
with clothes on Bob ! ;-)

If you've never done a collab with Bob6stringer, you can't imagine how good a collab can be.

Not to mention your playing ability and your "stuck-in-the-70's Chops" as you like to call your playing.

But when it got right down to it, This song would have been nothing more than a loop city groove if it wasn't for your hard work and dedication to the project. Your enthusiasm made me work very hard to make sure what I did on the song, was equal to the energy and skill you brought to the project.

For that I'm eternally grateful my friend.

ALL HAIL BOB6

This was a true collaboration, with both of us trying very hard to bring the best we had to the table.

And I think it worked out very well, but then I may be a little biased on that score.

Thanks for listening and for the very kind words Tom, glad you enjoyed the song.

This would sure get me off the bar stool to do a little dancing. Rock solid guys, did not miss a thing with this. Once again your song writing Ed is on the spot. Then putting this togeather the way you did, wow. Start with a little Funk intro, then of into a little Edgar Winter style. Johny is not far behind. I could go on and on. Outstanding. Well written, Great Recording, Origional,And the instrumentation is second to none. Got to go back to the different patterns though. Killer.

Thanks Russ
really glad you liked the song

As the song developed I wanted it to keep the audience guessing as to what was coming next. I hate boring songs, even though I've written a number of them.

Bob's guitar work made it easy for me to keep this thing interesting and moving in the right direction. He's an ace guitar player, don't ya know.

Thanks for the listen and the kind words Russ, we really appreciate your comments.

Be well and be cool,

Thanks Pat
It wouldn't be what it is without Bob's guitar work that's for sure.

And that's what is so great about doing projects like this with some of the guys and gals here on MacJams, but especially with Bob6. You usually end up with something where the sum is greater than the parts because the musicians involve feed off each others ideas and musicality.

It's like taking hydrogen peroxide and shooting it across a platinum screen in and container with a nozzle on only one end. You get a rocket that wants to take off for parts unknown, FAST

I wonder, is that why they call it "ROCK"

Thanks for listening and the cool comments Pat, Bob and I both appreciate it.

Take care, be well and be cool,

Ed

Ah yes, but you could have Jack
Bob and I just got here first.

Thanks for listening my friend and for the very cool comments. We did indeed have a blast working on this one together, and we're both pleased with the results we got in this mix.

Keep in mind, that although you didn't write this track you did do Blood Red Sky with Bob Rogers. That's one fine bit of tune-age and some stellar song writing there my friend.

Take care, be well and be cool my friend,

I've gotta tell this story here
This was the most fun I've had with my clothes on in a long time. When we started on this project it was just a short (about 2 min) GB loops groove I sent to Bob in late February or early March.

His comment was, "we gotta do something with this." and I agreed it had potential and started working on making it a complete song. It stayed in a constant state of flux until about 3 or 4 weeks ago when I finally finished adding the bridge and finalized the lyrics for it. After that , Bob started sending me guitar tracks (6 in all) and I started to do the final vocals and harmonies and sort out the mix.

From that point on Bob and I were in constant contact as I'd send him a mix, he's pick at it until the scab fell off and it was bleeding. Then I'd patch it up and send him a new mix and we'd go back and forth like that until yesterday, just before we posted it.

What we were doing was working on getting the guitar parts integrated into the song to where they worked without being "over the top" (yeah, right), and the different guitar parts would work with the vox and other stuff going on in the song. I was also adjusting other things in the mix to make the song work, like the bass line and drums, some of the keys and such as that.


During the last 2 weeks I did about 15 mixes until I finally got it all together on Sweet 16. The one you heard here. It took a lot of trial and error before we got a mix we were both proud of, but when we were finally happy with it we went for it.

During this process I learned a valuable lesson by watching Bob at work on this project. Sometimes you just have to let it sit for a day or so and come back to it with fresh ears. you have to restrain the urge to just mix it until you are fed up with mixing it and say to yourself, "Hell that's good enough". Because good enough isn't really good enough when it counts.

Another thing I learned is to wait for the other people or person you're working with to get on the same page as you're on, and to take time to get on their page as well.

When it clicks, you know it. It isn't a case of "good enough", it becomes a case of "Yeah, that it, now it's done" and you know you're right on target.

Thanks for teaching me that Bob, and for nit picking this thing to success.

Feelin' the love
Did I do THAT? I'm just back to stare at our Good time Girl song art. I really don't know what to say, but I know I'll always come back to your comments, Ed, anytime I need a pick-me-up. I can't say enough for how much obsessive, hard-working fun it was to do this one with you.

To everyone, man do I ever feel the love in the room. Or arena, as it were.

Glad you liked the song Sheila and we appreciate you downloading the song. Make us feel pretty good when someone likes our stuff enough to want to hear it again on the old iPod.

sorry.. should have included them... Real country music only happens in the country! When you get to Edmonton, turn south at the sign that says "road to no where" Go straight until you reach where old Man Jones' barn USED to be. Turn right, head straight and you will see a field with a herd of cattle and 50,000 fans in the mud (yup... it always rains so be prepared) and you are now at the Big Valley Jamboree! Welcome LOL

Did you forget the left turn at the "Nobody know where it is" bridge road. I was there last year and the only ones that showed up were the cows. But maybe it was just a bunch of Bulls. Had a great time thought jammin and rocking out till the cows came home.

Oh never mind, I'll just use the GPS. Got the coordinates for the cows? Oh yeah, and that is the gig on the second Tuesday of the last week in the first month of summer,August, isn't it?

See Ya there Sheila

Funny you should mention Jerry Reed, one of my all time favorite pickers, I was watching some old videos of his just yesterday. There was a man who knew how to entertain.

As for ZZ Top, that title goes to Bob6 for the excellent guitar work he did on this. He's a plater don't ya know.

Good-Time Hoochie-Kool
Really cool tune, Ed. Lots of little influences evident in here, all adding up to some good-time rock 'n roll. Bob adds a lot with eclectic guitar licks, including a brief nod to Rick Derringer... very cool stuff.

One thing I immediately thought would fit is some honky-tonk rock piano. Maybe you could find some volunteers for that here. ;)

Hello old friend
good to see you back.

Ya know I thought about the piano too, but for sure I couldn't play the part it needs so I let it go. Maybe one of the really good Ivory guys out here on MacJams would like to throw something together for me to mix in, and see how it works. Great idea Joe.

Thanks for stopping in to listen my friend. I think Bob6's guitars really made the song take off and I thank him for that. Glad you liked the song and we appreciate the great comments.

just to see if anyone would notice it.

Thanks, Micheal. Rippin' is one of the best adjectives; My Strat Plus thanks you from the top of its roller nut to the bottom its Fender Laces! If you liked my Derringer ripo... er, "homage," just wait until I slip Funk 49 into something. I mean, who remembers James Gang Rides Again and its "MAde Loud to Be Played Loud" admonition? (I always thought the Eagles was a step down for ol' Joe.)

I also thank everyone who's been so positive (not to mention those who have yet to hurl a single tomato, too!) Mainly Sigmund for indicating a close listen.

DOH!
RE Rick Derringer: I guess I should have read the previous comments before offering up my own observations! Ha ha...Hats off to Joe then!

I see a number of comparisons to various southern rock acts were made. Each one fitting in it's own way.

BTW Bob: I remember "The James Gang Rides Again" VERY well! In fact, I'm currently developing a rocker called "Gypsy Down" that starts out sounding a little Jimi, but in the mid-section turns into a full-blown James Gang homage (at least, that's what I'm ATTEMPTING to do anyway).

Like I said in my first comment, this one is an instant fave. You guys are aces together!

Glad to see you over in my neck of the woods. this was such fun to do working with Bob. His enthusiasm for the project was infectious, which made it easy to want to try to do something great with it. His guitar playing ain't bad either, as you can no doubt tell.

We had fun, made a little music and shared it with y'all. What could be better.

Glad you liked the song and we do appreciate you wonderful comments on it Maurice. thanks you again

Good time rock and roll! Love it. The guitar on this is really sweet, with a great sound, and a lovely combination of funky groove and bluesy riffing. Great vocal (love the high harmony), and really solid drum and bass anchoring the whole thing. This has all the hallmarks of summertime good time music. Outstanding. Nicely done to you both. Very cool. Nicely done. Peace.

It's a little unconventional in structure, but I got to say it myself, this one does Rock.

Yes I did all the basic tracks and such as that, but what gives this song that something extra special is Bob's guitar work. He nailed it on the rhythm and feel in the leads that took this one over the top for me.

Thanks for the very kind words David, and for coming over to listen. I'm really glad you liked this one.

Tons of good stuff in this one. Arraingement, great sounding mix, awesome musicianship. I remember a couple years back,(when you first joined) when you were complaining of being washed up, yet to my ear and sensibilities this is one of the best things you've done.

Well, I am washed up as far as playing for living, I couldn't do that now if tried, too much forgotten and too little practice.

But one thing I've relearned since I came here is that sometimes it more important to understand the song and what it needs than to actually be able to play all the parts. That's why the pros hire studio musicians.

If you can live in the song, you can find a way to make it do what it needs to do. What a song is supposed to do is get the message to the listener in a way that keeps their attention and gets a reaction, and hopefully a good reaction.

I credit you among the many that have helped me relearn those lessons that I had forgotten about in the years since I was dong music for a living.

Thanks for the kind words Matt, and for taking time to stop and listen. I credit Bob6 with giving this song it's character and swagger, with his blistering guitar parts, while I'll take credit for production and the song itself.

Glad you enjoyed "Good Time Girl"and thanks again for listening my friend. Say hi to Micheal when you see him,

If Ed's "washed up" I must be unwashed--except my old "Aqualung" doo is long-ago shorn, in case U saw that at my iWeb site and wondered...

Excellent collab and I hear a little Dead riffing going on here and there - always welcome to these ears - though probably not intentional - who knows? Anyway - really enjoyed this tasty number.

Thanks Kevin
Bob and I had a lot of riotous fun doing this one and I think maybe it shows. There are 6, count em, 6 guitar parts on this that Bob did for it. 3 rhythms and 3 leads, one of which contained a little nod to "Rock & Roll Hoochie Koo"

Anyway, glad you liked it and thanks again from Bob and I for the great comments my friend.

Be well and be cool,

WOW...
I'm not reading the other comments...This is just a rock-a-billy stomp, Ed and Bob. Totally enjoyed every stitch of it. What great guitar playing: the fills after a quick vocal phrase are just amazing; the mix is so solid; and the energy is just out of this world fantastic. I don't don't generally listen to this genre of music, but I sure can tell when something is polished and professional. This number makes it on all levels. Like I said, "WOW!"
Peace.

Thanks you Paul
I guess it goes back to understanding the song my friend.

This one wasn't hard to do because both Bob and I were on the same page on it. We both understood where this needed to go. Thankfully, Bob had the guitar chops to take it there and I, with Bob's help, figured out how to make those chops work for the song.

The rest of the parts of the song already had what they needed to lay the groove down for the vocal and guitars. It all just came together in the mix.

Thanks again for the kind words Paul, they are appreciated, Really glad you liked the way it turned out.

Be well and be cool my friend,

Can't sit still
Great rocker here guys! I too have a lot of my musical sensibilities stuck in the 70s so this is way resonant. Hot licks and a straight up vocal, wrapped in some great drums that drive it through the night.

Many thanks,
Doug

I really think there are a lot of us
old time rockers and players here that are stuck in the 70's Doug. But as far as I'm concerned, that was the primo generation for Rock. There was a lot gong on back then that laid the foundation for everything since then, not only in Rock, but Blues and Country as well.

That said, I'm really glad you liked what Bob and I put together in this song. It was a lot of fun working with Bob, and Bob's additions help to make it as good as it is.

Thanks for stopping in to listen Doug, it is very much appreciated.

Good job
Good song writing and delivery.

The guitar work is A+ but a couple of the licks are bit too much Rick Derringer. I swear I heard the lick from Rock 'n' Rock Hoochie Coo.

Otherwise this is the real tabasco!

Bob6 put them in to see if anyone would notice
but even so, they fit perfectly where they are in the song. Bob is a hell of a good guitar player, with a sense of the song. I credit his guitar work with giving the song that extra something that makes it all come together and work.

Thanks for the great comments Vic, they are appreciates. This was definitely a fun project to put together for both of us.

Hoochie Koo!
Hey, Victor, some explanation: When I heard a rough Ed sent me early in the process I immediately decided I HAD to sneak-in that Hoochie-Koo riff. Other than that song, I know nothing of Rick Derringer's guitar style or playing. But I had to use it... intended not as a ripoff but a humorous homage--and to see how many listeners are over the age of 45 or 50! I used the riff is in two phrases in the second verse; the second phrase adds the harmony from the original Johnny Winter band's recording (with Rick). I mean... I just HAD to do it!

I know what you mean about the loud knob being up. I'm always afraid to turn it up where it sounds right to me because I too am hard of hearing. Makes it way to up front for those that can hear.

Glad you like the song my friend and both Bob and I appreciate the great comments on it. Bob did a great job on the guitar parts, I was just trying to keep up, if you know what I mean.

Thanks again John,

Bob is really easy to work with, and he has some really good chops that fit this tune to a tee. I can see us doing more of these kinds of collabs in the future, of that I have no doubt.

Thanks again for listening Mark,

Bob6 did a hell of a job on the guitar parts for this, and I think, that while the song itself is a good song, Bob6's work on the guitar parts brought it up to another level completely.

Glad you like the song and the mix on it. We worked on it for quite a while before we felt we had it right.

Thanks again for listening Bob and for the great comments on it. Bob6 and I appreciate it a lot.

What a fun ride this was to do
Bob6 added so much energy on the guitar parts, I was hard pressed to hold up my end of the bargain. But we gotter done and I'm really happy with the results.

So thanks for your expertise on the guitar you sis string assasin you.

thanks to for everyone who came to listen and left their kind remarks about it.

This is what makes MacJams such a great place to take part in and share the music, camaraderie, and just plain fun.

Hard Work in the Joy Factory
Ed, it's your composition and all the other tracks -- and all the work in Logic -- that you did that deserves the credit. It provided the foundation for me to do the guitars, the hardest work I think I've done on guitar since I've been here. In the end, to my ears, the hard work produced a whole lotta joy. I'm grateful to you for gettin' this outta me.
