Re: Carly Jean

Re: Carly Jean

I couldn't help attempting to hum out the melody with my terrible sight reading skills, and came up with the famous, "I dreamed a dream in time gone by..."  LOL.  Maybe I shouldn't have given away that sight reading book, huh?  Perhaps if I get some time, I'll pull out my daughters keyboard and drum this melody out while showing her a little about how to read music.  smile

Re: Carly Jean

trial and error I also should have expressed the bar with a 1/2 note 1/8 rest 1/8 note and 1/4 note difffent to be precise it should have been a dotted 1/4 note 1/8 rest 1/8 note and a dotted 1/4 note to sound like dah & da dah which leads easier to the the 1/4 rest of the next bar this I discoverd after correcting the B to a G in the 6th bar,to bad we dont have the programing to score on chordie that would be fun smile

Re: Carly Jean

Dino it was not intended to show anyone up or advertise the fact I read some but I was curious to see if anybody could play the melody before I video taped the song smile

Re: Carly Jean

I can read it!  But, I can't play it on guitar.  I haven't really honestly learned where all the notes are... I just strum chords without knowing really what I'm doing.  I could hammer the melody out on the keyboard tho!  wink

Re: Carly Jean

Sadly my sight reading is too slow to be able to play from the score sheet, but I much prefer to listen to you playing it than having to work it out myself smile. I guess that makes me just plain lazy lol.

Re: Carly Jean

Pete and Jeff thanks for leaving your comments on you tube this song was worth all the time and effort put in by both Phill and myself I'm happy he composed the lyrics and nudged me into producing this song it seemed to take on a different life of its own from what I first composed Phill's vocal and keyboards took it to another level thanks again guys smile
