My New Song 'Snake Oil Blues' to be Released Tomorrow!

Be on the lookout tomorrow when I upload my latest song called 'Snake Oil Blues', written and performed by me and produced by Fuad Murad of Household Productions.

 Here's the official description:

Snake Oil has come to mean any product with questionable or unverifiable quality or benefit, most commonly associated with the American old west. 

This song describes a man's addiction to fake drugs. t's an old school throwback to the blues of old, in the style of country / folk / Delta blues. 

This song was recorded in one day, mimicking my previous track called "Dem Blues is Coming', of having one take per track to keep it sounding more spontaneous and 'live'. 

I used D standard tuning on rhythm guitar to get a fuller sound, but used E standard for the slide solo (to use the open strings that naturally fit the D chord). Bass was played with flatwounds on a Fender Precision with vintage pickups.
