How Would You Play This?


Recommended Posts

So lately I've been writing melodies on the piano and then transcribing them to guitar. Here's one of them:

This is what it'll sound like with chords:

It'll sound much better once I play it on a guitar with heavy backup (I'm going for a "wall of sound"). Anyhow, so I started to play it on guitar but I couldn't find a nice fingering pattern. I'm set in a certain way now but I'm not sure if it's the best way. So how would you play it? I'll show you how I do it later...

That's lovely--but I'm a poor reader. It would take me at least an hour to figure it out, and then who knows how long to find an effective and comfortable fingering. I would love to help out, and I'll probably give it a shot tomorrow.

 

Still, though. It's a great freakin' melody. I love it. Can't wait to hear it completed.

 

And +1 to Casino about the beautiful naked women suggestion. Those are always great.

Thanks Sear! The way I play it is different for the first four measures, but then pretty much follows what you did...

Thanks all for the nice comments and great replies! It is written in B minor. The hard part, at least for me, is that you need to move in and out of your "box" at some point. Writing music on one instrument and putting it on another certainly makes things fun. FYI, the chords are: Bm -> Em -> A -> D -> G -> A7 with G bottom -> Bm with F# bottom - F#7.
