I sent these lyrics based on a true story to Ingo, in need of a tune, and he replied with the bass, organ, drum and rhythm guitar midi tracks for the intro/interlude, verse, chorus and ending.
It turned out to be the blues, much to my delight! Admittedly I made it a lot busier and made it blues rock, complete with two drummers.
I predict about 50% of the potential listeners will like it, those who like the blues, of course.
Honestly I have never done a real blues song before, even though I love the blues, so it was a great privilege to get to do this. I think I’m getting settled into my new old upgraded laptop. The other day I discovered I had to Run As Administrator Reaper or all my VST instruments wouldn’t load. Maybe they were 32 bit and not 64, I don’t know for sure, but that seemed to solve that problem.
That said, any and all criticisms are welcome. It is political humor, so I also predict slightly less than 50% won’t find it very funny, especially my stepfather-in-law who has yet to pay up!
