Hey-

I listened to your songs, really enjoyed them! You have a lot of talent with the cbg as well as the singing. Thanks for sharing!

Hi Ken...thanks for the comment! The cbg definitely gives you that sound that takes you back to the early delta blues days ! Have a good one

Ken,

As requested, here's the lyrics:

Shaken, Not Stirred

Baby wants a diamond ring, but I don't really know
If that's really my kinda thing, or the place I wanna go
She gets me so uptight, y'all, every time I hear that word
Her thinkin' starts me drinkin'; gonna fire up my Lincoln, leave her shaken, not stirred

Later in de evenin',
Considerin' I'm leavin'
I ain't no good at grievin'
Or cryin' all night long

They say she's kinda crazy
She sez I'm kinda lazy
It's all kinda hazy
Where we started goin' wrong

It leaves me shaken, not stirred
The woman gotta word
Sh-sh-sh-shaken, not stirred

Baby wants a new car, 'steada cruisin' on her feet
She needs a new vacation, cuz the old one left her beat
My credit card is maxed out, and my limit is absurd
Her conspicuous consumption's just consumed all my gumption, leaves me shaken, not stirred

Later in de evenin',
One of us is leavin'
There ain't no point in grievin'
Or cryin' all night long

They say she's kinda crazy
She sez I'm kinda lazy
It's all kinda hazy
Where we started goin' wrong

It leaves me shaken, not stirred
The woman gotta word
Sh-sh-sh-shaken, not stirred


(Harp verse)

Later in de evenin',
One of us is leavin'
There ain't no use in grievin'
Or cryin' all night long

They say she's kinda crazy
She sez I'm kinda lazy
It's all kinda hazy
Where we started goin' wrong

It leaves me shaken, not stirred
The woman gotta word
Sh-sh-sh-shaken, not stirred

Baby wants to have a kid, I wanna new guitar
Don't really matter to her what I did when I went down to that bar
She never would believe me, no, she'd never take my word
That the redheaded girl upon my lap just left me shaken, not stirred

Later in the evenin',
She's thinkin' 'bout leavin'
There ain't no use in grievin'
Or cryin' all night long

They say she's kinda crazy
She sez I'm kinda lazy
It's all kinda hazy
Where we started goin' wrong

It leaves me shaken, not stirred
The woman gotta word
Sh-sh-sh-shaken, not stirred

It's a real damn shame
This finger-pointin' game

It's enough to make you scream
This California dream

You all know what I mean
This whole romantic scene

It's taken us too long
It's just that kinda song

thanks man

Cheers Kenneth

I love that piece, it's powerful alright and perfect for slide I reckon. As for the tone I just played into an audio interface and used an amp simulator from Logic on the recorded track. The monitor sound was clean and I didn't actually hear the overdrive until after I'd recorded it. Maybe that made me push it a bit harder, who knows. It was all done in a bit of a hurry, came out OK though, Cheers.

Thanks, man!  Yeah, I love the Delta.  I don't get up there as much as I would like, but it always an adventure when I do.  I'm working on my first CGB now.  Wish me luck!

Thank you Kenneth for your kind message, Curtis Loew is in reference to Skynyrd's song !
