Description : the dead can not only dance, no, they can also make very good music ....

somewhere in the barren wide swamp landscape.
The death turns merciless the wheel of life .
And at night, in the sparkle of the pale moon,
gather his victims to sing on the old cemetery their song.
Gloomy sounds floating through the fog and tell us about past times
Bass guitar, lead and rhythm guitars (homemade cigar box guitars) played by Burt.
Synths, vocals, mixing and mastering by Joe Cramer.

    Downstairs, I heard a girl crying and calling: "Why don't you pick up my phone and ignore me?" I thought it was another phone call to check my girlfriend. When I walked past her, I heard her crying and said, "You want If you break up, you will say it well. Don't miss the call. Others will worry about your safety. You know how to drive, and you love to go. I am afraid that you will be in trouble. If you break up, don't scare me..." Feelings, how great How humble

    I was just thinking about this song this morning talking with a local musician that does graveyard blues! Great to hear from you, definitetly we need to do more! I still have this guitar, my first homemade and cant part with it :D I've taken up winding my own pickups now too. If you ever get to building your own metal one I'll have a pickup with your name on it. Notice the name change, more in line with what I'm up to these days. Ok back to work, talk soon.

    I'm working on two tracks right now and i think that there is at least one who needs a cool slow CBG solo playing.

    The metal self made guitar is still in my mind and i will ask for the pickup for sure if i starting the project :)

    I got my violin bridges the other day, still waiting on tuners, kind of at a stand still until those arrive along with the weather sucking lately! (I have to cut and sand outside) I'm going to build a 4 string guitar cello, I guess you call it hahaha It'll be the 4 low strings from a guitar set at an arch like a cello and played with a bow, that should make some nice gloomy music :p After we use up all 9 lives do we get 9 more? That's great people feel better after this doom and gloom! I've got to do some funeral doom with a cbg. I'll send more your way soon, got to keep Beyond the Sky album growing.

    I listened to both versions, I think I prefer this version. I can't understand the words, it is more like an instrument.Some sort of Mantra. I really like this, and those swamp slide sounds. Very very cool blues track, well done both of you!

    Thanks a lot for your friendly comment TeeGee1965
    Nice to hear that you could enjoy our little swamp slide blues like song.
    One of eth reasons why i didn't changed the version here on looperman was that i also like this bit more muddy sound. But there are still listener who prefer a version with some little bit cleaner vocals. So now everyone can listen to the version he likes :)

    Burt is so creative since he startet to make one cbg after the other :) so don't stop him until we finished our album :)
    His cbg's have so a nice kind of sound like he recorded them in a small, abandoned hut, somewhere in the deep swamp. Just a gloomy sound like from another world :)

    Ahh, the deep rnb sounds from 6 deep...its amazing you still put out even after 9 lives:)

    Very soothing and found myself sitting back as if I was mixing at an open air festival with you guys onstage as it has that nice side show appeal to it. nice use of effects on the vox and sweet guitars thru this artwork.

    As always Joe, awesomeness and fav from me although kinda of jealous you still can sprout great tunes when 6 deep:)

    Kindest regards,

    Reply by joecramer

    Thanks for the friendly comment SLT

    I would certainly enjoy it if we would do together on a open air festival something :)

    To be honest, i don't used much effects on the vocals. Just a little reverb and some micro pitching and only some EQ to filter out the noise that i recorded :) .... i just sung it that way. But i spend a lot of time on mastering the instruments and finding cool effects and filters and stuff for each steem .....
    The guitars are really cool played by Burt.

    I am really glad that someone like you give us a fav. That means a lot to me, cause i really respect your work as a musician and sound engineer

    joecramer
    Reply by joecramer

    I made a different version with much more clear vocals, cause i had the same feeling that they are much to muddy/low and others also said that. So i uploaded a wav file with the better sound to soundcloud. You can find the link in the description.

    Yaay! Another Cat \(^._.^) Wasn't it you that did a song for the LZA sometimes they come back, well.... Then I shot you when you turned hahaha. So many tracks could be linked together in a huge story from these stories. We need a good video maker to make us a movie. I think I shared the Bayou Blues stems with you, and have more blues in various stages as well as more coming almost daily, I'll share too. Google translate sucks, I couldn't write a description in another language if one of my 9 lives depended on it. I think Brado's description nailed it with the dreamy surreal feeling. It's kind of like seeing the world from the other side of the veil. You should've hunted down the devil and stole his fiddle made of gold! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K6RUg-NkjY4 Always a pleasure Joe. Dan asked for a country type tune, that's how this came about. I still want to try photo shopping those braids onto him LOL!LOL!! Hoping to make my own violin/fiddle soon. Looked up rosin for the bow string, very cheap, as well as the materials I can't scavenge. I just need to select a box.

    joecramer
    Reply by joecramer

    You know that i already made this "head movie" for the LZA.
    Maybe we should start a new "movie" about dark and deadly things ..... and you are right, a videomaker would be a cool thing.

    I still love the blues and will soon start working on something. Lets see what you have for me.

    I dont know why but i am sure that playing Violine will not be that easy then playing a cbg ..... but blame me and show me what kind of cool Violine player you are :)
    Dan will looking awesome with that braids
    Our Burt and Joe behind the sky album get filled up with lot of different things man. I really enjoy this collabs with you

Maybe they only chill out with you when you stay a little longer.

Once - by Joe Cramer

once, i had a life
once, i felt so great
once, i had some good times
but now i am dead

once, i was on the highway
once, i was in love
once, i could fly
but now i am dead

once, i was someone
once, i felt so strong
once, i changed the whole world
but now i am dead

once, i was a human
once, i believed in truth
once, i thought i am normal
but now i am dead
