I need to revisit that tune soon.
I have been playing "Trying and Failing to Mix." It's melancholy.
I was working on this a few years ago and had some trouble with some of the parts but determined to get this together now because my daughter has gotten to be an extremely talented singer and she loves this song. We're big fans of Disney movies/songs. I contacted the composer on a whim and he gave me some secrets that were very helpful. What a cool guy.
I have been absorbing a T-Bone Walker lick that someone posted on one of these boards; maybe this one. Using it up and down the fretboard, and incorporating it with dominant 7th arpeggios to stay in one position on the board. That and working to memorize the 7ths, 9th, 11ths and 13ths in all root positions.
Seems to be a pattern
Last week was Come together and running on empty
This week it's Boulevard...getting back to that D to A smoothly is an issue right now.oh well....I got a week to get it together
Wow, that just got easier...I LOVE this sh!+
Well, since I've got a 3.5 hour cover band gig Saturday, I've been playing:
Good Times Bad Times
The Wind Cries Mary
I'm on Fire
Beast of Burden
Runnin Down a Dream
Dazed and Confused
(then I practice taking a break)
Fool in the Rain
Take Me to the River
Love Me Two Times
Hey Hey What Can I Do
Wish You Were Here
Blister in the Sun
(then I practice taking another break, especially after singing that last one)
Magic Carpet Ride
Another Brick in the Wall Part 2
Let's Get it On
Play That Funky Music
Sympathy for the Devil
Spoiler alert for anybody who will be in Pocatello, Idaho, Saturday night.
Me too... and playing over all kinds of backing tracks in the process.
Wow that’s quite a list .
When is your band coming to NJ!
Seriously I like a lot of those songs .
I am currently playing a tune no one has heard before, not even me. It only has a verse and chorus, key, and a vague set of changes. Will be playing it all week.
Whenever we get a gig that will pay travel, hotel, food, and a bit extra for our pockets. Got any ideas? We've only gigged a few times here in Salt Lake, and this is our first interstate trip, just a 2.5 hour drive. I definitely consider it "just a cover band" and don't have plans for much travel, but you never know.
If you haven't already, hit the youtube link in my sig. The channel has 7 full songs and a promo video with clips of those and a few others from that list.
I'm running the whole list right now. I'm on that post-Under Pressure break right now!
Some old band comrades and I have been long distance collaborating on original stuff the past few months. Two of em are in South Carolina, the other in Alabama, myself in Pa. The going’s slow as a result, but its been a lot of fun so far, and everybody seems enthusiastic to keep it going. We’ve only finished two songs, as of yet, but our singer was laid up in the Veteran’s Hospital down in Georgia for nearly a month until only about a week ago, and none of us are going to push him to do more than he wants to. But I text with him almost daily and he’s really stoked to keep it going. I think he’s been bored to death, musically speaking, for a long while, and I know I have. It’s for sure classic rock sounding stuff, but that’s fine with us. Since we’re all getting up in age, we thought maybe Herd of Turtles would be a pretty good moniker.
I taught myself the solo from Another Brick in the Wall and have been playing it on different guitars.
Also, I spend a lot of time working on Darn That Dream.
we have a 2 set show Friday, a one set show Saturday, and a quick 30 min on Monday... so we've been rehearsing this week
...for 4 Clapton tunes I want to play at the pub jam(s) I go to:
Built 2 solos from blues licks I have learned (Crossroads and Before You Accuse Me)
Learned 2 solos off the songs themselves (Tore Down and Key To the Highway)
I've come to the realization that it's a lot more productive to have specific solos for specific songs.
I can improvise but I do tend to overplay and get a little off the beat (lost) if I just hammer out licks with no planning.
I have around 25 more songs and some of them already have a set solo, but I am working toward solos for all of them.
I find I use up a lot of (learned) licks quickly as they are fairly short. Thus I am busy learning all the time.
I know eventually I will be better at it but for now I need some structure. A goal is to be able to transpose them all (or a number of them) so I can recycle them in pieces or completely for different songs.
It never ends lol...
Went to the pub jam tonight and played Crossroads and Key To the Highway and so I got to try these live. They went well and sounded pretty good through the maiden voyage of my Katana 100. Got told to turn up a few times so that's a positive sign lol...
That is the greatest kind of playing!
If you got one verse you got two.
Si Tu Savais...
I made the mistake of trying to learn the first solo of Comfortably Numb this week. Which is really hard for a beginner. But I'm really enjoying it, even though my fingers hurt
Here's a video of where I am right now
