Re: Beginner's videos

Two Thousand and Seven... Ahh, those were the days. We were all so young (well, some of us), foolish, naive, had darker hair.. and thought we could rule the world and learn guitar.... Many have fallen by the wayside. Guitar Noise dot Com still flourishes and Mr Hodge still steering the helm with imp...

Re: Y10 W25 - The Message (she's not for me)

Hey Dylan, :lol: :lol: :lol: Nice one! That's an interesting topic if someone misinterpreted rain or a normal reoccurring event as a message from above. An ironic side note "The Message" is the title of one of the newest modern translations of the Bible. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Message_%28...

Y10 W25 - The Message (she's not for me)

Hi all Not sure about a title for this amusing little ditty.... also maybe someone can help me with the chorus and bridge as I'm stuck in a bit of a rut at the moment with my music... Just realised that it sounds a bit (a lot) like the chord progression for Prince's Rasberry Beret - and he uses the ...

Re: Y10 W25 - That Old Cortina.

Hey Vic Made the hairs stand up on the back of my neck. I always thought about getting back to the UK and getting myself an old Ford - I had them all at one time or another - Cortinas I, II, II, IV, Capris I, II and III, Escorts I & II (MkI 1300 GT - my first!) - the list goes on...and on... The mem...

Re: Y10 W24 - Headlines and Movies + MP3

Hi Dylan, Nice job on the delivery with both the singing and playing. :D Suggestions: Consider adding an additional chord progression for the verse or chorus. Also try some minor chords. With the major chords and laid back strumming style, it doesn't match the lyrics of tension and uncertainty of t...

Re: Y10 W24 - Headlines and Movies

Hi all

Atrocious guitar playing and equally atrocious vocals... all part of the Dylan Barrett experience...

Anyways it gives you an idea of the how I see the song working.

Thanks for listening :lol:

Re: Y10 W24 - Headlines and Movies

Hi all Thanks for the comments. Hi James, always like to keep you thinking.. :wink: Just like the good old days! :D Hagrider has got the essence of the story correct - it's one of these songs that a video would reveal all. I definitely like the listener/reader to work for their money and maybe make ...

Y10 W24 - Headlines and Movies + MP3

Hi all Wow, has it really been 14 months since I last wrote a song :shock: Well, here I am again :D Not sure about the music - I must admit that each time I read it I feel soft rock, Bon Jovi something like that... Headlines and Movies She is a prisoner By her own request Take me where I've asked to...

Re: Beginner's videos

Whoop whoop whoop - way to go Ken (KR2 that is...)... If I still played and practiced I'd be as good as you now... :( Keep working on the capo shift (although you seem to have the barre chords pretty much sorted now so can't see why you should need to move the capo) - Marc Bolan used the capo a lot ...

New Guitar - Possible problem with neck width?

Hi guys and gals, Well, my old £50 Stagg acoustic is going to be retired (although I may keep it in some dangerous form of alternate tuning)... What to do... I think I've decided on getting a mid-range Tanglewood Acoustic-Electric - The Sundance Historic is based on the early 30s/40s style and I li...

Y9 W14 - Too Many Saints

Hi all When I looked at the list of Saints that the link took me to, I couldn't believe my eyes and I said to myself with all those Saints looking after us, the world should be a great place to live... and I suppose it is for a lot of people, but there are others, past, present and future that would...

Re: Y9 W13 - Week Thirteen

Fantastic James - Rock on indeed!!!! As David says, music is about interpretation and so many people write lyrics that are personal or about a subject that a listener can relate to in a completely different context. The words started coming to me in real time, then I had to start adding the meat to ...

Re: Y9 W13 - Week Thirteen

Hey James I'm really pleased with your comments. It's done what it says on the tin! I was just finishing work after a 'trying' day sorting out some last minute conference details for a client, and thought that I'd see what was going on in week thirteen. I opened up a bottle of beer, put my feet up a...

Re: Y9 W12 - Sounds of Life

Hey Melody Thanks for taking the time to read and reply. You're right it does need looking at because, I have to say i never I very rarely think back to the places I've left behind because what I look at each day is far more inspiring... Nevertheless, they call it artistic licence :roll: I'll come b...
