🚛October Recording Challenge 84 - Movable Chords💥


Recommended Posts

Hello All.

This months Challenge comes to us from rockinrickard and is entitled 🚛Movable Chords💥

Rick said "How about anything with some of the movable chord shapes that we learned a while back? It could be a real song or just a rhythm using some of the movable chord shapes; extra credit if some lead is placed over the top of the rhythm."

So get recording everyone and give us something to listen to! The "winner" is chosen by a random picker and the prize is that you get to choose the topic for the next Challenge.

Here is my go at "Stray Cat Strut" by The Stray Cats. All the chords were barre chords here and all the instruments were real ones played by me.

This recording is a first for me because:

1. I have actually used the Whammy Bar!

2. I played the drum parts with my electronic drum kit (the type that you play like a real drum kit with sticks and feet). But I did have to do a bit of timing correction (as with the guitar parts). 

I have played the song at a much slower tempo than the original. I have only just begun to be able to do barre chords again as I appear to be having a slightly better time with the arthritis and trigger fingers. I can not play this song all in one go yet because of fatigue (or I may be using a death grip on my guitar neck).

Please note No cats were harmed during the making of this track.😆

Hey Mandy,

you got cat class and you got cat style!

That's a fun performance and you played it well. I was picturing the Aristocats dancing around on your tune 🐱🐱🐱.

@Nutty 1, Mandy!!!! I had to use Wim's words because it describe your performance so well!  "you got cat class and you got cat style!"  And you played all the instruments?!?!

After watching the fingerstyle arrangement of this song by Gabriella Quevedo on Youtube, I wanted to learn to play this song (The guitar friends here that are into fingerstyle should definitely check out Gabriella Quevedo's YouTube channel). Gabriella is however using a weird tuning (B F# C# F# A C#), and I wanted to stay in standard tuning. So I had to figure out my own arrangement in the end.

Anyhow, this is my solo acoustic fingerstyle version of "Love Of My Life" from Queen. This is also my little graduation project from the L&M Fingerstyle course, that I am about to finalize. I tried to incorporate several of the techniques from the course in this arrangement.

Hope you enjoy it.

Wim.
