Old standards on acoustic


fretplay

Recommended Posts

Have any members tried the old standards on acoustic guitar. I know it's not the usual blues rock thing and not written for guitar but a challenge !

 

Here's a song written in 1918 to start us off.

A VERY cool song....I may have to put a version together for myself!

You should look up some of Buc McMaster videos. He died a great job on the old standards on a ukulele

 

Dave, Buck is an amazing musician.... makes everything look easy and he's blessed with a great voice.

 

I've heard this song done by many....but I like this version best.... not too fast, like it's usually played.

Buck is one of the best I've heard, in my opinion.

Thanks.....

 

If my version put you off eating, there is always...pizza, McDonalds..... [biggrin]

No, that wasn't the McD's/Pizza version. That was the going out, and someone's getting laid tonight version. Not the bar, the restaurant/hotel lounge version.

 

I just wasn't going out or had anywhere to go, so I had to wash a pan and use the oven for a change.

Thanks MP I like it speeded up rather than slow and sad. Of course the guitar break is overdubbed but the same guitar. Happy Christmas to you.

 

Pretty cool rendition, fretplay. I've been playing-around with it for the last 30 minutes or so and it ain't as tricky as I expected on the timing. Nice job, man.

Forgot to mention. I used the Fiona Apple version

You can get her singing it on You Tube too. If you record it let me know!
