There it is. Well done Alan.
My humble attempt:
Yeah Raymond. Dats it!
Is there a possibility of somene posting a mp3 version of the backer? I can't open it on Audacity, neither on Sonar. I'm running a pretty old laptop that doesn't have the right "stuff" to open mp4 files.
Use an online soundcloud to mp3 converter.
Thank you Chris, as always!
Some damn fine submissions in here...I'm humbled
Kevin are you being facetious or did this almost resemble an actual song you may have heard
Man, once I decided what I wanted this was totally fun. Thanks @fezz parka. More please!!
Hank Marvin is jealous. Just great Dave.
You have a wonderful lyrical approach that never fails to hit the mark. Well done Rafa!
I like the Pretty Woman quote. This is something that requires you to play the changes. In the A part you can get away with a bluesy thing, but straight minor pent will sound off with the rest of the form. Try A Mixolydian. The b7 will give you that bluesy thing. The B and C parts really need you to pay attention to the root of the chord.
From a "what scale to play" over the entire form, A major is where it's at. A minor pent will sound very off, because it is. Just make sure to hit a chord tone on each change. And keep it within the A major key center.
From a modal standpoint, that's A Ionian for the I, D Lydian for the IV, and E Mixolydian for the V. All contain the notes from the A major scale. You just start and end the scale on the 1, the 4, or the 5. A-D-E.
The other approach (and the way I like to do it) is play the triads for each chord in the form as arpeggios. The 1-3-5 of each individual chord. Augment the triads with other notes from the A major scale with the 1-3-5 being "home".
Great stuff by all BTW. And remember the exercise, and purpose for these PMW threads is to exercise your compositional chops. Not your lick library.
Another code buster.
Lots of tension and release. All within the key center, but enough outside to make you feel it. I wouldn't expect anything less from you E.
I'll let you decide for yourself.
I've been 'keeping myself to myself' while I worked out a few tunes. Loved the track. Very 60s pop, to me anyway. I tried to do as much with it as I could, so plenty of mistakes. Now I've posted, I look forward to listening to yours.
EDIT: Sorry about the minute of silence at the end. I can only imagine it's everone else quietly thinking about how this arrangement could have been.
Very cool (and Brit) Simon!
Slick! Love the rhythm guitar work E.
Pretty Woman riff is a cool idea Chip.
