I expect you'll sort this out in the end, and then I'll sort this post out for you!

Re: EDELWEISS

Hi John, Love that song, and you have played it well. Particularly like the 'vocal' voice you have used when you play it for the second time. By using that, with the children sitting on the floor round Christopher Plummer you have picked up the atmosphere of the setting. Here is that very lovely son...

Re: Easy Walking - Own Composition

Brian,

That is just amazing! Love those little melodies you have created. And the voices you have dug out of your Korg are amazing too and really make the piece. How much do you charge for pop stars to hire your talents?

Re: Got a Date with an Angel

Ken,

That was very good! You played it beautifully, and your recording was spot on. Did you play this on your Ringway RS1000e?

It's not often that you find a good recording from 1931, but here is one worth listening to.

Fred .. when you uploaded Gipsy Moon did you specify that it was for Public viewing? If you can see it I would suggest that you had it as Private viewing (so then only you can see it). You can CHANGE it to 'Public Viewing' by going to your YouTube Subscription page. When I go to F.T. Turner it says ...

Re: Young At Heart.

Hi George,

That's a song with a good beat! Well played, as always! A number one hit for the Bluebells in 1993 after a re-issue.

Re: "Something Here in My Heart" - 1968 - Paper Dolls

Brian, You certainly have a talent to be able to 'play by ear' like that. Not only do you have to play the melody, but you also have to choose the right chords to go with it. Don't know the song, but it is very reminiscent of this era. Bronwyn and I were married in 1968, so this year is our 50th Wed...

Re: MISTER SANDMAN

Roy,

Great bit of Theatre Organ playing here. Interesting how you get a 'rhythm' going by playing staccato chords with your left hand. And at the same time you are playing the bass on the pedals. It's not easy to play 'Theatre Organ Style'!

True Love Ways

True Love Ways . Now this was sung by Buddy Holly (not a Duo), Robson and Jerome (a Duo) and by Peter and Gordon (a Duo). I think this is one of my favourite pieces of all time, with that wonderful harmony throughout the piece. My take on this. The pictures are views from the balcony of our bungalo...

Re: All I Ever Need Is You

This song ending up here has a little story behind it. Don hadn't played this piece as a 'Duo/Duet' as he didn't know it was one! He remembers them playing it in his band in 1971, so it must be the Sonny & Cher one that he had heard. I have MOVED his post into this August Challenge and adjusted ...

George, That is a fantastic arrangement of that song.

Who would have thought that it would...

Re: Blue Moon - Chord Progressions

What is a 'Blue Moon'? The expression, "Once in a blue moon", comes from the fact that there are 12 months in a year, and a 'full moon' in each; but not quite. Every two to three years there are 13 'full moons' in a year, so there are two in one of the months .. and the second one is calle...

A bit of fun. There are some 'chord progressions' where the same chord structure is used for many songs. For example, the twelve-bar blues or blues changes is one of the most prominent chord progressions in popular music. The blues progression has a distinctive form in lyrics, phrase, chord structur...
