101 choices for you to play.

Postby KRUG » 30 Sep 2016 10:30

As the Scottish theme is no longer attracting posts we thought that we would start a new challenge.

This time we are asking you to play any tune from 101 Hits for Buskers Book 1. If you are a new member and would like to try this challenge but do not have the book please send me a PM (personal message) and I will be able to help you out.


Please remember that the aim of this section is to encourage you to sit down and make a new recording. It does not matter how long that takes you as the theme will remain open ad infinitum.

We look forward to your entries.

Keith

Hi Keith,

Way too much choice now :lol: :lol:
Be interesting to see which ones are played and which are not ?
Will have to get my thinking cap and playing head on over the weekend.

I am beginning with number 100 in the book - "Laughter In The Rain." I have tried to concentrate on the solo sax and clarinet voices so have just uses a drum rhythm. Played in what I hope is a very laid back style trying to concentrate on the touch sensitivity to emulate the instruments.

Hi ALL,

Been a long time since I last posted a tune in here but here we go, and just to show my softer side ? ( gone all floppy now ) no guitar :(

Heres number 93 out of the book, "Love Me with All Your Heart" is a popular song, based on the Spanish language song "Cuando calienta el sol".
There has been 28 different artist who covered this song, Played here in 6/8 time as opposed to 4/4 just for a change

Nothing fancy used here built in style off the tyros and my own intro`s, middle`s and endings played over the top of the Tyros style intros and endings etc.

Hope you enjoy this https://app.box.com/s/ij60g0ns6zhbkt3yjbvmtka2rbxz7wjs

Hi Brian,

Very nice indeed. Particularly enjoyed the little melodies played in harmony. Nice also to see that you have found the wind section!
Thanks to you and John for listening/commenting on my efforts.

Thanks to John for his kind comments. This next one is 101 and I have found it very difficult. I kept getting lost which I put down to the number of lines on the page and the three different verse endings in the middle of the page. Changing keys does not help as I tend to play the wrong # or flat which I put down to age. After all my trouble I hope that someone likes "Goodbye To Love."

Hi Brian,
a nice version of Love me with all of your heart. I enjoyed listening. :D :D

Incidentally, although your keyboard may say 6/8, on this occasion I would say 12/8
4/4 played in compound time (each beat divided into 3) makes 12. (12/8)
count it like this, 1 and a, 2 and a, 3 and a, 4 and a.
In the case of triplets, count, I trip let, 2 trip let, 3 trip let , 4 trip let.
2/4 converted to compound time makes 6 (6/8)
3/4 converted to compound time makes 9 (9/8)
Hope this helps.

Hi Keith,

Winchester Cathedral, a well played piece with a very vaudeville sounding band you used which fit the bill perfectly.

Goodbye To Love You made I thought a good job of that piece considering I can't imagine its the easiest piece to play
did particularly like the organ sound you used.

Hi Brian, Thanks for your kind comments and hope that you are on the mend.
I recorded "Blowin in the Wind" last night but thought somebody else might like to do that so will keep it in the bank. I also recorded "Leaving on a Jet Plane" by John Denver so will post that one for now. I also looked at 92 and 93 which rang no bells at all until I started to pick through them and very nice they are. Will have a look at them again today.

Hi Keith,

I liked the voices you used in Leaving on a Jet Plane very much and you played it very well.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hi John T.

A very nice version of that Jim Reeves classic, which you played and voiced very well.

Hi All,

Rumours of my demise appear to have been greatly exaggerated as I am back :o , so here's number 98 from said book a little ditty from the Beatles called
Ob La Di Ob La Da This caused me no end of problems getting it altogether, I dont know why but I really struggled with this one, so heres the best recording
to date and lets see who can spot the mistake ? no prizes for the correct answer

Hi Brian, That was excellent and well worth the time you spent working on it.

I remember my next effort, No 93 "Blowin' In The Wind" from student days when young people gathered in small rooms and sang along with the lucky person who could strum a guitar. Happy times.

Many thanks for listening and commenting and pleased you enjoyed it, and yes its a foot tapper alright.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hi KEITH,

I did enjoy your version of "Blowin in the wind" I thought the choice of voices was excellent and enjoyed listening.

Thanks for listening and commenting on my last post and pleased you enjoyed it, but a little surprised you didn't
pick up on the mistake ??

Hi Brian, I could say, "which one?" Like everybody else your efforts will differ from the written notes and so they should. A repeated phrase, a missed rest etc. etc. what matters is that it was a darned good interpretation of the music.

October eighth and it is a glorious summers day - Blackpool weather! Very appropriate for No. 81 to be played in an attempt at Blackpool style. It is, "Those Lazy Hazy Days of Summer."

Number 82 "Nice 'N' Easy." I did not recognise this one from looking at it but it began to ring bells as I began to pick through it.

Hi Keith Two nice relaxing tunes. Pity you were taking it nice and easy in the sunshine at Washington Galleries shopping centre. No sun tan cream required. I liked the mixture of sounds particularly the harmonica must be puffed out. Enjoyed my listens. John

Hi Keith,

The first tune "Those Lazy Hazy Days of Summer." I knew and enjoyed you version very much, well played.

The second one "Nice 'N' Easy." after listening to it I am still not sure whether I know it or not
but enjoyed listening to it very much, good choice of voice and played well.

I am looking for something else to try will see how it goes anyway

John T. you mentioned about more people posting, out of 20 odd downloads of that pdf sheet music
there are still only three people posting ? up to now anyway.

Hi Brian and John, thanks for your kind comments.

I hope that you all enjoy the next one. As it is Sunday I get out the classical (church/cathedral) organ and try to find something appropriate. Very easy this week as number 16 is a thinly veiled version of "Air on A G String" and seems just right to play as the postlude at a cathedral so that the congregation leave uplifted by the music, if not the sermon.

This is my cathedral version of, "A Whiter Shade of Pale."
