That's cool. Do you sing it and play ?
No, that's one of the ones I can't sing and play at the same time. I rarely work on singing these days, but I need to do so.
Brown Eyed Girl (Van Morrison)…. simple song, right? I've been trying to play those double stops for years, and they still trip me up.
They're simple 6ths that follow the scale. Just like Soul Man.
Crowded House, Sister Madly. No reason it should have been so hard for me to play.
I would have given this reply a double "like" if possible.
Muscle memory is a wonderful thing, yet terrible when you learn it wrong to begin with !!
glad I’m not the only one
Sometimes simple songs can be deceptive. One example is Lay Down Sally. Three chords, as simple as can be. But that rhythm shuffle. You have to absolutely nail that right in the pocket, or it sounds wrong. You have to be airtight on this one.
I haven't tried that one in years. Maybe time to revisit.
We've been doing 'The Weight' for as long as I can remember, and I have been performing it on my own long before I joined a band for like 10 years. I went through a couple month stretch like a year ago where I COULD NOT come in with the first line of each verse on the right timing.
It was like something in my head was broken and I could not fix it for the life of me. It got to the point where I worked on trying to fix it so much it just got worse. Eventually I stopped listening to the song or playing it for like 3 or 4 weeks. Then we decided to give it a go at a rehearsal and it was like nothing was ever wrong. Strangest thing.
