This was based on the https://talonsrockband.wordpress.com/2014/03/08/asynchronous-jam-fleetwood-macs-dreams/ that Mr. Jackson posted, so I added a little bit of stuff onto it. This is my first time trying something like this, so this probably doesn’t sound that great or fit the original assignment that well, but..oh well.
For my remix assignment, I made a rendition of Joseph M’s stroking pattern assignment, which can be found at this link: https://talonsrockband.wordpress.com/2014/02/26/joseph-moon-sroke-pattern/
I chose to make a remix of his stroking pattern because I wanted to focus more on my right hand this week. Since I’ve gotten the hang of changing chords now, I’ve been working on my strumming skills.
Joseph’s stroking pattern was a starting point, but in the end, I changed it a lot to work for me. The chords I used were G, Em and D.
Iris is playing with me in this recording because playing alone just felt too lonely.
for my remixing assignment is built off of Devens pictures of the G D and C chords.
I saw a chord progression I liked and made my own backing track of it. It’s nothing special, It’s just my strumming this chords. I might add a lead guitar next time I do it.
Here come the excuses and apologies (zoom). But when I saw Bryan’s tweet about the remix, I could not let it pass by
I’m a long time Doors fan, so when I listened to ColinJagoe’s smooth rendition of Riders on the Storm, I was inspired just to try out the tabs.
Then I cringed at monsters like “F#m7sus4” and “Bm7sus4” til I got to the bottom, and author had laid out them more clearly- I used the “frets” version, and once I went through it, it had a very familiar feel to The Pusher Ringy/Slidy Bluesy one I did long ago– I am guessing it is just in the minor range.
For my cover, I tried it the bluesy angle, almost the strumming pattern of The Pusher. After recording in Audacity, I was bummed because my input levels were too hot, so I shrunk down the amplification, and to cover up some, I tossed in a little reverb.
I really like the sliding progression, and I got a few new open-ish chords to mess with. I am not quite sold on the D-C for the fifth of the blues riff, but I can live with it.
