Re: Beginner's videos

Okay, okay. I've procrastinated long enough. I picked up the guitar a few months ago, and this thread has really given me a lot of encouragement. So, here's my little addition: Drive You Home by Garbage. Probably should have played it faster, but I think its passable this way. Singing's a bit rusty...

Merry Christmas all Sunday Songwriters...

Hi Guys and Gals

Sorry I haven't been around lately - what do you mean, you haven't missed me... :cry:

Hope you all have a great holiday and all those guitar-shaped presents aren't just shirt-presses.

Merry Christmas and Happy Songwriting New Year.

Rock on a ding-dong!

Re: Y7week48 old green shirt, mell's hell, tin foil hat

Hi Straycat I'm honored you picked two of my verses to work with... :oops: I love the images conjured up in That Old Green Shirt, but I have to agree they ring more like verses than choruses. I'm singing it to myself, and I think the problem is that we either need another verse before your chorus or...

Y7 Week 48 - Too Old For This - Verse + Choruses

Hi all Ok, I read Vic's description of what he wanted for this, a few times actually, and either it's ambiguous or I'm thick.. (don't answer that please).... So, he're a couple of choruses for, ironically, Vics title and Chiefie's first verse. They go off in different directions so I'm glad I haven'...

Re: Y7W47 1st Verses

Hey James Don't Wanna Listen - yup, like that If Only - I really like this first verse, but I feel that using the title in this verse is a waste of the tltle somehow....Be that way, uses the title gratuitously which is ok, but it's lost in 'if only'....IMHO :oops: I wish I had written that version o...

Re: Wk 47 - Verses

Yup, a lot of good stuff going on here. Could work with some of these....

Re: Finally something by ear!

Hey Joe Thanks for posting that. I've been using this song to hone my flat-picking skills... :lol: :roll: and trying to integrate the little riff - bloody hopeless I have to say, but I like the tune and groan along to it as I strum... and I'm still getting used to using one of those plastic things! ...
