Sombre and melancholic chord progression almost as serious as Rachmaninov.
From the first time I heard this song, I knew I had to play it. It’s got a good melody and pretty simple format.
http://youtu.be/cRNG0G94Wfw I’m trying this out, the rhythm latched on and came naturally. But I am still not sure whether it is the right rhythm or backing for this ballad. Also I think it would benefit from backing vocals or someone doing the harmony to “fill out”. What do you think.
Another one I had to get out of my system. This beautiful song is surprisingly difficult in parts. Well not exactly difficult, just a little challenging.
Not too sure about this one. Tangerine covered by Satsuma in a citrusy moment of fancy. Oh my darling Clementine.
A McHappy tune but a tough one for the handspan-challenged. Played in one-two one-two Fats Waller rhythm in C major.
Seemingly tick tock classic bossanova rhythm, but you will find it naturally hard to keep up if you have never played funk, soul, latin, jazz or all three of these genres. If you are singing and playing it’s even harder, but if you are just focussing on one instrument it’s not too bad.
‘…His most intellectual close friends get to call him T.C….’
Yesterday – title says it all. No rehearsing or anything. Just playing it cold. Thought I would just record the first take!
