It has a been a bit since we posted our last cover. Health seems to be working us both over and getting in the way of production. But at long last we share our version of the Stone’s classic - Tumbling Dice. This song sounds easy to do, but in fact, once you dig into it, you find that is not the case. We really needed a wall of female singers and had not a one. So we did the best we could. OH-Dave did a great job on guitars and we hope you enjoy this one!
Ha, how do you know we did not crap out on this one? LOL, we took it slow because we are slow these days.
Not sure how many more of these Stones numbers we will ever do. I got OH into it by telling him about open G turning. He was not keen on alternative tunings until he saw how easy it is to tune to open G. Next thing you know, we are doing the project for TD!
Thanks so much for stopping by and checking out TD. I am glad this came out sounding good for you. We do our best on these productions. But this Stones song had us compromising in a lot of areas. I still wish we could have had some female backing singers!
Nice job guys, made it your own on the vox LB and great tones from OH as usual. Slick production and clever vid. Jagger is almost impossible to cover, as I discovered with my latest OM selection, like Fleetwood Mac always best to go your own way ! Hope you are both well.
We all learn from our elders and betters, eh?
You guys lookin’ up to Keef ‘n Mick,
Me lookin’ up to old heads and big little brothers…
Hey: "Anyone down there lookin’ up to me?! (or am I in the basement? )
Always a pleasure folks. Impeccable attention to detail.
I can see why you were focused on the lack of female Larsens in my collab.
Keep on rockin’ and entertaining, my friends.
I was able to get OH-Dave into this song by telling him about the open G turning. From there he liked the rhythm and the rest is as you now hear it. It would seem you are at a low rung on the totem pole, so it would be unlikely folks are looking up your way Brian. LOL
I first heard this one with the intent to cover it and my comment was we need a bunch of Mama’s to back this thing. I had one gal that might have been interested. But she has 2 kids and getting a studio session in that scenario is a tough gig. Been there, waited 6 months for a 2 hour time slice and it is no fun. So you have to put up with Bro and lot of Bro’s… doubled up via mass tracking.
All the best there Innkeeper. Leave the light on for me!
