Last night when I was as usual hunting for that ultimate blues-sound (which imo. would be the SRV-sound) I recorded this one. Actually the drums and the bass took longer time to program, than to do a couple of vocals/guitar takes.
The song is from 1954, and is a Willie Dixon/Muddy Waters blues standard from the beginning. (for those who didn't know this already) The first version of this I actually heard was Jimi's, but Clapton picked up this number in the past 20 Years as well.
I strongly recommend listening to all three versions, rather than this one, since there are some great blues-playing on all of them. Especially Jimi's version has an incredible groove by Mitch Mitchell. (its actually a bootleg one from the beginning, taken from a studio session in the middle of the night)

Muddy's/Willie's lyrics from 1954 is really awesome, if we consider that it was written some 50 years ago. They can be found below.
My singing may be excused since I totally destroyed the voice the other day. (due to the weather, coffee and probably cigarettes, even that I dont want to admit its so... tongue.gif ) But the purpose here was not the singing, rather to test the guitar sound.

Recording notes:
Drums by Superior Drums
Bass played manually via MIDI to Trilian
Guitar recorded with 2 SM57, just delay & reverb added in the mix. No EQ.
Suhr Strat + my Deluxe clone built by Lars Reinau, just some little boost by Danelectro Transparent Overdrive.
Otherwise no effects.

Gypsy woman told my momma, before I was born
You got a boy-child comin', gonna be a son-of-a-gun
Gonna make these pretty women, jump and shout
And the world will only know, a-what it's all about

Y'know I'm here
Everybody knows I'm here
And I'm the hoochie-coochie man
Everybody knows I'm here

On the seventh hour, of the seventh day,
on the seventh month, the seventh doctor said:
"He's born for good luck, and I know you see;
Got seven hundred dollars, and don't you mess with me

Y'know I'm here
Everybody knows I'm here
And I'm the hoochie-coochie man
Everybody knows I'm here

Gypsy woman told my momma
Said "Ooh, what a boy,
he gonna make so many women,
jump and shout for joy"

Y'know I'm here
Everybody knows I'm here
And I'm the hoochie-coochie man
Everybody knows I'm here

Gypsy woman told my momma, before I was born
You got a boy-child comin', gonna be a son-of-a-gun
Gonna make these pretty women, jump and shout
And the world will only know, a-what it's all about

Y'know I'm here
Everybody knows I'm here
And I'm the hoochie-coochie man
Everybody knows I'm here

Additional 2nd verse from original 1954 Muddy Waters take:

I got a black cat bone, I got a mojo too
I got John the Conqueror root, I'm gonna mess with you
I'm gonna make you, pretty girl, lead me by the hand
Then the world will know, the Hoochie-Coochie Man

Thx. smile.gif Yeah, Muddy really rules on this one, even that I think both Clapton and Hendrix as well as Jeff Healeys version from the movie "Roadhouse" also is very good guitar-wise.

Sounds really great Staffy!!!

Guitar tone is nice (maybe a touch to much compressor for me) and it does sound close to the SRV tone. Maybe you should just use thicker strings instead to get the sound but that is hard on the fingers. I'm an older guy like you so I no what a pain in the @@@ that can be! wink.gif

This backing would make a fun collab. Maybe you should use this to start your first one smile.gif

"Think of a guitar solo as a paragraph. You need a clear beginning, a middle, and an end. Look at musical phrases like sentences, and make sure you break them up using punctuation—or space. You pause naturally when conversing, right? If you don't, you'll bore the listener. The same thing will happen with your audience if your solo is one dimensional. You'll wear them out and lose their attention." —Tom Principato

Thx. smile.gif In fact there is no compressor on the guitar, only some T3 tube-like soft compression on the master bus in order to sweeten the sound a little. But that is the biggest issue in order to nail down the sound - Stevies records was probably done on Neve consoles/analogue tape machines and then digitally mastered/remastered. To get that vintage sound in all instruments (drums & bass too), some real expensive studio gear must be used.....However, I will try to records some tracks in a "real" studio pretty soon with my band and see how that turns out.

Hmmm, I dont think this one will do for a collab, maybe with some rhytm-guitar/keyboards on it... but I have better backgrounds for that purpose.

Heavier strings? I'm using 0.11's but I'll go for 0.12's with 0.13 on the top next time.... laugh.gif laugh.gif laugh.gif

Here's the backing I used in two key's (since I'm tuning down to Eb normally).
No copyright applies since I made it in my basement, use it as You wish! biggrin.gif
Imo. it will also work as a demo for the new ultra-realistic Trilian sampled bass from Spectrasonics.....
So for those of You who likes to play a blues in the evening, Enjoy!
