We finally finished our song. It’s called “Lobstah Fest.” What we had in mind was a New England lobster/clam bake on the beach in Maine. We also envisioned the seagulls and other birds flocking around the lobster boats when they return with their catch to the pier. The song is basically in F minor (we think) with a happy melody.
Here’s our latest song challenge tune, “On the Dance Floor, We Do it Swing Style.”
Since we can’t play very fast, this is a VERY SLOW swing song. Maybe best for “work station chair-dancing.” We recorded several tracks using Garage Band: Baritone bass line picking; baritone strum; high-G and low-G tenor strum: high-G and low-G tenor melodies … plus our favorite “apple” maraca keeping time.
You can listen to the song on this Google Drive link. Enjoy. Chris and Sue
Great song Kathy. Love hearing about all the cool stuff you have in Australia that we just don’t have here in the states. If you record again adding the gum leaf playing would be awesome, although you have such a pretty singing voice, maybe you don’t need the gum leaf 😊 Didn’t know that was a thing. The link you sent was awesome. We can only whistle with hay grass, bottle caps or you can always find an acorn cap to play 😜
That was awesome Hamsini! We were hoping we would get to hear another song from you this month. We’re very impressed with your long pinky finger stretches. The upbeat tempo sounds so happy. It left us smiling.
We’re glad you all enjoyed “My Dog Has Zzzzz.” We recorded four tracks in Garage Band playing baritone, high-G tenor and low-G tenor. We used an Apogee Mic+ USB microphone connected directly to our Mac. We imported the photos and videos into iMovie along with the soundtrack from Garage Band. Have fun in HI We’re jealous. We were there once on business 40 years ago, but haven’t been back since.
