Ali Sleeq releases “Snake Oil Blues”

Local snakeoil

The much awaited track,  ”Snake Oil Blues” by Ali Sleeq is finally here… Check it out and give him your feedback. Free download too!




 About the song:

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. It’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.
