What's your favorite song to play ?
« on: January 03, 2014, 10:32:46 PM »
What's your favorite song to play and how did you learn it ? For me it's " What's Going On " by Marvin Gaye , this song goes back to when my favorite cousin and I would get together for a few beers and talk for hours about all kinds of stuff. When he died , it left a great void in my life and this song kind of brings him back to me. I first learned to play it by trying to sing it with my Chrom note for note just the way Marvin sang it. Before I use a BT or some other version , it's the original that get's me going . Once the song is in my core, then and only then will I improv or add some of myself to it. It works for me to do it this way.

My favorite song changes.  It tends to be whatever I am working on.

I agree with Rick though presently I'm hammering away at "Harlem Nocturne" so I can present it to the band for consideration.  I really like this tune because it's outside my comfort zone and requires more discipline and attention to detail. Fun tune, highly recommended.

Cheers,
G

Oops, must have had one to many glasses of Wine, I forgot to write which song is my favorite. For me, it's Marvin Gaye's " What's Going On ". I've played different versions of it but the original is where I start before I try anything else. I have an original sounding BT so I'll be working it again. Sorry about that guys and gals. Thanks

One of the BTs this jam is Harlem Nocturne, I just realized this is where I got the notion to put it up.  Chords can be supplied if anyone needs them, since I found two different arrangements. (I used the simpler one.)
