Neaky Freat

My Many Personalities!

We’re on a mighty trip!
We never get it right!
But God grades on a curve
You get what you deserve! A song!

By popular demand (not my cat!) I’ll do a Turkey Day share.
This is still in process, and represents my latest project.

It’s called “Neaky Freat.”
It’s about dancing.
I play all the instruments, designed the drums and wrote the tune.
Working on this in iMovie as I migrate to a better interface (DaVinci).
Also getting to know Apple Motion a little better, which is fun!
At this point, I haven’t added the bass guy, some FX and finishing. Continue reading “Neaky Freat”

The Golden Glove – Mark Urso

Videos De Musica

This one dates back to the 1700s. It’s about a girl who stalks a guy. But back in the day, it was a treasured traditional story of a woman in love, across cultural boundaries. From Springsteen in the 70s to campfires with Vikings, themes we hear in popular music are timeless!

I’ll include the lyrics with the chords, below. You can give it a try if you’re a musician, or just read the lyrics; it’s pretty fun. The woman dumps her rich boyfriend for a lowly farmer, and they live happily ever after!

Despite the stalking premise, this song is definitely safe for kids! Continue reading “The Golden Glove – Mark Urso”

Love Yourself (Sheeran) – Mark Urso

So, I saw a great band, and they did this song, so I went home and figured it out. The only problem is, I’m not as great as they are!

Love Yourself

But I’m trying! Playing with a Boss VE-8 Acoustic Singer pedal, with no amp. The electric guitar is plugged into the pedal, which goes into my recording DAW. The pedal arrangement on the VE-8 is quite excellent. In all my time playing with audio equipment, I’ve never Continue reading “Love Yourself (Sheeran) – Mark Urso”

KT Tunstall – Suddenly I See (Live Music Video and E-Z Chords)

She’s Scottish … vicious, vivacious, sexy, cute and sublime, all at the same time. The music is nothing short of breathtaking.

She uses loopers, bangs on her guitar for percussion and performs before enormous crowds, often with an acoustic guitar, keeping the composition very clean. She’s an outstanding entertainer!

While practicing tonight I ran into this live performance by KT Tunstall. I hope you enjoy it as much Continue reading “KT Tunstall – Suddenly I See (Live Music Video and E-Z Chords)”
