Biography

I've been a pro bass player for thirty-five years. I've probably played most styles of music you can think of, since being a freelance player has been my living: rock, funk, jazz, Latin, reggae, blues, classical, country, etc.

I was raised with classical, got into rock in my first bands, expanded to R&B and jazz in college then went where the gigs went.

When I write I can write in one style or just freely create, where all the styles I know have become part of my vocabulary and seem to blend and migrate.

The current tune, "Hello I Love You Dear," is a "commercial" song with a reggae/calypso feel. I think it'd be great in the movies!

Lyrics

Hello, I Love You Dear

Written By: Marty Buttwinick

Calypso / Reggae Style

La la la la la. La la la la la la. La la la la la. La la la la la.

Verse
She comes around with her hair flowing down.
She comes around with all her honey.
And here she is with those big blue eyes, that
Always make me feel so damn funny. (And I want to say...)

Chorus
Hello I love you dear, and I’d like to hold you close to me.
I’ve been waiting a whole damn year, to say I love you.
I see you in my dreams, and you really mean the most to me.
You can’t realize how much it would mean to say I love you, I love you, I love you.

La la la la la. La la la la la la. La la la la la. La la la la la.

Verse
Do I ask her out, I dare myself to say.
Or should I hold it deep inside?
I don’t know how much longer I can wait to have her love, so I
Think I’ll crack a smile and just say hi. (But I want to say...)

Chorus
Hello I love you dear, and I’d like to hold you close to me.
I’ve been waiting a whole damn year, to say I love you.
I see you in my dreams, and you really mean the most to me.
You can’t realize how much it would mean to say I love you, I love you, I love you.

Solo Section

Verse
The woman then she says to me, “My dear,” as she puts her hand in my pocket.
Here is the key to my room.
Come and meet me, twelve o’clock would be so very fine,
And we’ll kiss beneath the beautiful new moon. (And she said to me!...

Chorus
Hello I love you dear, and I’d like to hold you close to me.
I’ve been waiting a whole damn year, to say I love you.
I see you in my dreams, and you really mean the most to me.
You can’t realize how much it would mean to say I love you.

Hello I love you dear, and I’d like to hold you close to me.
I’ve been waiting a whole damn year, to say I love you.
I see you in my dreams, and you really mean the most to me.
You can’t realize how much it would mean to say I love you, I love you... I love you.

La la la la la. La la la la la la. La la la la la. La la la la la.

No radio airplay yet--this year. Lot's of podcasts with my classical music though. And about 5,000 ringtone downloads from my ringtone site.
