Although it may sound like it, no wolves or sheep were injured during this recording!  ;D

What can I say?

An excellent version of a song I hadn't heard before.

Your deep dark voice is perfect, just on the right side of sinister.
You've got the day off to a good start!

Another stellar production from the Studio Oldhead

I think you really nailed this one Dave ... you have your tone down, fine balance between the tracks, the voice to die for delivering the song with a panache ...  pretty sure Lil Red is going to take a walk on the wild side (apologies Lou).

A comment from David is not complete without a question ...

How do you do your drums?  Layed down a groove that sounded natural, like you had Charlie in your backroom.

Haha!  Good one. I like the take at the end making reference to “wolf in sheep’s clothing.”

Smashed it again Oldhead.
I think I've said it before, and I'll say it again now. When I listen to your recordings it really comes through that you are having fun. You're doing something you enjoy, and doing it well. Lifts my mood also.
Thanks for posting.

Mr. B, I thought sure you and Darrell would have heard this one.  Well, thanks for listening and for the great comment about "the right side of sinister", as that's exactly what I was going for on this one.

arrrrrroooooooooooooooo Big Bad Wolf you're bairrrrd, bairrrrd, bairrrrrd 

I'm runnin' real fast to tell my granma 'bout you.



Batwoman, Interesting.  You're going to run and tell granma, and DavidP  figures little Red was going for a  walk on the wild side.  Haha.   Thanks for checking it out.

David, Thanks for those comments on the mix/tone, etc.   Did she or didn't she?   The original song ends in a fade, but I put that lick in at the end trying to draw a question mark in the listener's mind.

Drums:  Just a standard preset in my DigiTech RP155 pedal.  It was the closest I could get.   I really think drums could enhance a bunch;  I just don't know that I want to spend the time it takes to put it together.
Thanks for the comments.

David, that was fun!!!
Never heard it before, great start to Friday morning 👍👍👍

Darrell, Yes, this is definitely a fun song.  Glad it got your morning off to a great start.

Excellent! You nailed it! What a tune to wake up to. Puts a smile on my face. Haha. Be good, bad wolf!

Hi, Lynn.   Thanks for the listen and comments.  Put a smile on my face too.  In fact, I had three re-starts on the vocal 'cause I started laughing about it.  Me, a bad wolf, be good??  Hmmm.

Haha!  Good one. I like the take at the end making reference to “wolf in sheep’s clothing.”

Pam, Thanks for stopping by and commenting.   Wikipedia has kind of a sinister take on the lyrics which I didn't know about until after I posted this.  But taken on face, it's a fun song.

Matek, Well, thanks for that.  And I've said before I'm having a ball doing this.  I'm trying to put a little more color in the vocals to help tell the story, so I hope that came through to you.  It lifts my mood that it lifted yours.  Thanks.

Close, a man of few words (at times).  Truly appreciated.  Thanks for listening and the comments.

Barend, Glad you listened and like it.  And yes, it is a fun song, and fun to sing and play. (all open chords).
Groupies?   Wow, now that would be interesting, considering this was No. 2 on Billboard's Top 100 in August of 1966 and I was 17 then.  You figure it out. ::)

Great song oldhead - never heard it before - enjoyed it. I would say it is hard to sing without bursting out laughing at some stage.

Hum,
I was going to crack up over this but I was diving for the brakes on my ears... I was going to turn it up but you more than took care of that!

Great song and you did it great. Still smiling and laughing over it. Good tones and vocals. Just a nice production all around.

Take good care, keep them coming and be well!

Kontenda, Thanks.  Glad you enjoyed it.  Yeah, it's a fun song for sure.  I still laugh just listening to it.

Roman,  Thanks for the feedback.  Yes, I did forget to note the Phaarohs.  My bad.  They were a great group back in the day, and still resonate with a lot of people, myself included.  Wooly Bully is actually on my list to do, and yes, I'd be interested in discussing the possibility of us doing it.  I'll shoot you a PM later. 

I admit I didn't know the original, but your cover is fantastic. Love the intro hah! :D

Fox, I'm surprised at how many people don't know this song, but considering it came out in 1966 I can understand why they don't.  Welcome to days of old! Yeah, that intro is what got me laughing and was the reason for a few re-starts.   Thanks for the listen and positive feedback.

Dave,

Thanks for comment on the drums....

----- Drums:  Just a standard preset in my DigiTech RP155 pedal.  It was the closest I could get.   I really think drums could enhance a bunch;  I just don't know that I want to spend the time it takes to put it together.
Thanks for the comments.

I need to see how to use presets on my drum plugin. At the moment I progrm with MIDI Editor which is probably taking more effort than is ideal for a less ideal result.

 For me the drums were just fine as the cover is an exercise and showcase in guitar playing first and foremost, everything else is supporting as best as possible. And from that point of view I agree with you not to fuss too much on the drums.

I guess I'll admit that I did know the song - but I'm going to quickly qualify that to say although I was around in '66 I was just a wee little girl, so it would have been in a later year that I heard it!

As always I really like your arrangement, and this one is one of those that is a perfect fit for your voice. And just as an added little note from my partner lurking in the background while I'm listening - "I like that guy!".  :)

David, I think, but not sure, you should be able to take a preset and just drag it or copy it into the DAW
I don't mess with MIDI but from what I've seen and read it seems that could be pretty cumbersome.

Mari, I appreciate the comments.  Haha, a wee little girl, huh?  Well, you remember it anyhow.  Surely your partner must have been speaking of the big bad wolf  ;D  Thanks to both of you.
