Susan Boyle stunned me. Amazing!

Incidently, my new album comes out in Japan on Wednesday 21st, in Europe on April 29th and 30th, and in the US on May 19th.

Some guy already put the whole promo album on youtube, if anyone wants to take a listen...

Just search "score to a new beginning". There's even a playlist...

I have to confess being reminded of this classic.

NICE.

What he said.

Yah!  See, now that was definitely worth a thread bump...!

Susan Boyle, fun story.

And congrats on the new ax, dnmlthr!

Even if it is out on loan -- an ax being played beats the heck out of an ax sitting in a store window like an unwanted puppy...

All right, let's see if the collective power of the AtBC ax-trust can help out here.

Here's an old favorite song of mine, but it's also old and obscure enough that I haven't been able to locate guitar chords on the InterTubes.

It's "Don't Cry, My Lady Love," written and sung by Dino Valente (the songwriter, under a psuedonym, of "Get Together," the Youngbloods' hit) when he was a member of one of the later line-ups of Quicksilver Messenger Service.

It's a spritely piano waltz, with a little twang in the vocals, but I'm looking for guitar chords, naturally.  I doubt they are very complicated, but I'm still not very good at trying to pick them out myself...

Here's links to two YouTube "videos" (the video stream is just a still band photo or album cover shot):
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WQhHSwj2ALA&feature=related

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ayEEcK---b8&feature=related

I've got lyrics, if that might help in listening to the thing multiple times!

If anyone wants the lyrics, or can whip off the chording in an idle moment, let me know here, and we can do a PM thing.

Thanks so much, fellow six-string wranglers!

Never seen this thread before.

'SCUSE ME! GUITAR PLAYER COMIN' THROUGH!!!

Me and my '80 Aria Pro II SH-1000 semi-hollow through-neck, the one with the black-box pre-amp:

Sorry about the size (I say that a lot).

Since changed the machine heads to all-metal 16:1.

Surely SOMEONE hear must've heard some good music or acquired a scintillating and irresistable new ax since August of last year...right?

Despite the ongoing, er, global contraction (breathe, honey, breathe!).

If so, let us know.   ;)

I got myself a Roland RE-201 Space Echo some time ago, albeit away on loan at the moment.

Reeeeeally? I loved futzing with that unit at Offerman's Studio in Nelson.

I've still got a DDR-3000 but there's a bad solder joint in it somewhere, I get ground hum and weird swirlies when it warms up. :-(

Glad to help keep this thread going, but -- wah! -- wuddabout my chords?

Really, it's a pretty little lilting broken-hearted love song.  Give it a listen and if you don't like, certainly I wouldn't expect anyone to labor over the chords...  But if someone DUZ LIKE, then I'd be exceptionally, eternally, nay, virtually grateful if they'd figger out the chord changes and pass them along.

Thanks in advance!

Hi Stevie!

Ok, I'll get to it tomorrow and give you the basics.

EDIT: if you already have the starting chord, I can figure it out right now. Else I'll have to go and get my guitar or keyboard in the attic...

perfect relative. But I couldn't sort out a A from a B. if you just pop a note to me without a reference...

BTW, it is done. Just work out the final structure, but it's not so hard:


(intro): C# minor, B minor

Verse: A major, F# minor, A major, B Minor, C# minor

Bridge: D major, B minor, C# minor, A major, B minor, A major, B minor, C# major, A major, B minor

Chorus (I suppose): D major, E major, A major, F# minor, B minor, C# minor, A major, B minor, C # major

Finish: A major

Well, to answer the FB question: YES!!!

BTW, If you see any mistakes in my transcribe, feel free to correct. That was done in a rush, and I'm more used to french notation (do, re, mi...)

Just a quick tip to Stevie:

If you want to play it for funsies, without the track in the background, just transpose every thing by 3 semi-tones up (verse should then start in C major). It will be a lot easier to play, as it will mainly adress the basic chords with only a few bar-chords.

Just sayin' :)

EDIT: Damn and blast! I just realised this sounds oh so condescending! Forget that last post...

First, thanks a bunch!  I REALLY appreciate it!

Second, it's impossible to condescend to a pinhead.

I do want to play it in the "original" register, and -- despite my utter helplessness at this point in my, heh, "career" at figuring it out for myself -- none of the chords will be a problem to play.

Well, none any more than any other, that is!

If you or anyone else stumbles across refinements, though, please let me know...

I just knew that AtBC was the place to come for this!  Coolness!

"The Golden State" Stratocaster was specially built for California Governor Pete Wilson by master luthier George Amicay with the assistance of Jason Davis at the Fender Custom Shop in early Fall 1998. Unique, the bass side features a gorgeous, finely rendered five inch diameter carving of The Great Seal of the State of California overlaid with gold leaf paint. This handwork, quite labor-intensive, took Amicay 200 hours to complete and is signed "G. Amicay '98." On the treble side are the signatures of former California governors, Pete Wilson and George Deukmejian carved in facsimile, and adjacent to the Great Seal is the carved facsimile signature of Dan Lungren, California's Attorney General under Wilson who ran for but lost the 1998 governor's race. What had been planned as very special congratulatory gift from Wilson to Lundgren became, instead, a heartfelt token of consolation.

I didn't say he wasn't good.  Anyone who can capture the essence of SRV is okay by me. It was more the video that tickled my funny bone.

PS: Apocalyptica?  I guess I better look them up again.  I thought they were just 4 cellos.
