6 weeks in... DEAD!
« on: May 14, 2018, 03:44:35 pm »
Hi all,
My son wanted to learn guitar, so I bought him a Yamaha classical entry level guitar and arranged fortnightly lessons. I decided to ‘eavesdrop’ on his lessons and have a go myself, looking through some of Justin’s beginner’s course.
Lovin’ it.
There’s no point in being shy, so six weeks in and three chords later I wrote and recorded my first song! Over half a minute long- It’s called DEAD ;)

Well, it's a lot better than my first song. I haven't written one yet! Seriously, you gave me a chuckle. Keep at it.  ;D

Yay… My first vibe!  :)
A FB friend said it reminded her of ‘Smelly Cat’ in Friends.
I had to Google it to remind myself and have to agree with Lisa Kudrow:
"If I were in this for the money, I’d already be a millionaire!" ;)

Haha, if you want to know how to play Smelly cat here’s a friend of mine who teaches Ukulele on YT teaching it, it’s pretty easy!!!
Obviously you would have to substitute guitar chords but it’s still probably within your abilities if you work at it!

That was fun Brian. Keep playing and keep posting. Having a sense of humour when one embarks on the guitar journey is a great asset.

Cool,
Kind of partial to original stuff myself. This was pretty neat for that amount of time! good job, keep working at it and post us some more "progress" originals.

Rock on,
