I just wrote a song with a guitar

I haven’t played one of those guitar things in years.

I’m a keyboard player/drumer/and kind of a horn player, but I just repaired my clunky cheap guitar and decided I’d try writing a “guitar song”.

For some reason the beat and tone reminded me of Elvis (Not thin, cool, wartime Elvis but chubby, Vegas Elvis), so I just went with it.

If anyone wants to hear my Zombie Elvis track, I put it here.

So THAT’S what you do with a guitar! I was trying to cook burritos with a guitar, and it really wasn’t working out so well.

For the last 10 or more years the only thing I did with THAT guitar is let it sit in the corner and catch the dust that nornally would have fallen on the carpet.

It did a pretty good job of it as well.

I decided I should figure out how to play the damn thing. :slight_smile:

I find it easier to write with a pencil.

Random thoughts while listening (from a non-musician):

It may be my poor speakers, but the vocal track is a little lost.

I’m not sure I’d call this a “guitar song”, but it’s good.

The sax (horn?) gives me a little Shuffle Demons kinda feel. -Very ‘street’.

Chorus riff is pretty catchy.

Good job!

Well I’m impressed!!

Hey thaniks. :smiley:

Put your song up on dmusic.com and you’ll get lots of critiques from other musicians. It’s a great, free music community. I think so anyway :cool:

Dreamer: If I took this song more serious, I might. But you have to remember this is a song about Zombie Elvis. heh heh
