Really getting down to the wire now, as I bring you Day 11 of 14 here at Jim Fusco’s 14 Days of Rock’n’Roll Christmas! I hope you’ve been liking all of this free music so far. Let’s keep it rolling tonight with a great little tune that Elvis Presley sang all the way back in 1957. “Santa Bring My Baby Back (To Me)” is one of my favorites because of the good beat and that awesome bass line. That line took me a LONG time to master and my fingers were so sore I couldn’t play the bass again for a couple of days! But now I think I can play it in my sleep.
The backing vocals were a little trickier than I thought they’d be. There’s a couple of parts that I didn’t realize were in there, but you listen to a song a lot differently when you’re trying to recreate it. I was able to use some of my nice guitars and amps for these songs to give the proper sound and I think they really sound good.
So, add this song to your growing collection and come back for the final three days starting tomorrow!
Welcome, Laptop Sessions fans! Today is Day One of Jim Fusco’s 14 Days of Rock’n’Roll Christmas!
I’m excited to bring you the first song, which is a cover of Elvis Presley’s classic, “Blue Christmas”. It’s a great song and was a lot of fun to do (except for that high harmony part the Jordanaires sang!). I hope it does justice to the original.
Make sure to stop by again tomorrow (and for the next two weeks!), as I unveil a new Christmas song for you. And remember, they’re completely FREE to download! Just click the down arrow icon at the top right of the player below.
