Topic: Can Someone Suggest 3 CHords For Me, Please?

If sunshine were mine,

I'd give it to you

If moonshine were wine,

I'd pour it for you,

If lovin' you Honey, was all I could do

I'd do it, I'd do it for you.
============================


Written for my wife. As usual, it's just a piece of a song, so I put it in as a poem. Please move if if necessary, Mods.

Thanks

Bill

I'd pour it for you.

Re: Can Someone Suggest 3 CHords For Me, Please?

and it just now occurred to me after rereading the original post we have all failed, I came in at four chords instead of the requested  three. back to the drawing board

Re: Can Someone Suggest 3 CHords For Me, Please?

We could all have suggested 3 chords but 3 chords are too boring for such a beautiful refrain.

Please don't delete it, Mo'. It's beautiful.

Check the comments on Cloud, please sir.

Re: Can Someone Suggest 3 CHords For Me, Please?

Thanks to all of you who helped me with this. I'm going to try to play all the versions through, no matter the chord changes. I'd feel as if I were ungrateful and unattentive of your time, if I didn't do this, and that isn't me. So I will play them through and sound cloud them as soon as things settle down here a bit.

Thanks and Dondra will love it, like we love all our Troubadors

Re: Can Someone Suggest 3 CHords For Me, Please?

Please see the notes on the cloud, Phill. Dondra (who is now home, by the way), loved it as do I. I think it's great there are different versions of these few words and we thank you also for your friendship ---- ALL of you!

BGD,

Please excuse me for this late posting, but I have been going back and forth with getting groceries, prescriptions, gas for the car and, of course, my wife. Now that we're both home, I want to sit down with my accoustic and play your chords out. I want to thank you for thinking enough of me to use up your time in putting this together.

Thank you, my friend!

Re: Can Someone Suggest 3 CHords For Me, Please?

I wrote about Chordie in the new installment of my blog, but y'all can't read it yet, because I have it saved as a draft. The reason I saved it is because I want to feature Phill's and Mo's version of my short song and I need you two's permission and I also need to know how to post them in my blog as a clickable link.

Can y'all help me with this?

Thanks

Bill

Re: Can Someone Suggest 3 CHords For Me, Please?

hi bill. it's quite easy (i think?) right click the links and shade the link click copy then paste in your post/blog. if you're asking my permission to feature your song you have it...no probs big_smile

Re: Can Someone Suggest 3 CHords For Me, Please?

you have my permission but I must say Phills is a whole lot better than mine

Re: Can Someone Suggest 3 CHords For Me, Please?

Different styles, Mo'. I think I may have told you this before: You have a little "Dylan Thing" going on. Not "all the way" Dylan, you understand, but when ol' Bob wants to, he can do a romantic song that's just awesome. Here's an example of what I am talking about:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N6ODMKS … DAxicn6qcK

And so can you.

I'll try to get those 2 songs up tomorrow along with the blog.

Thanks for letting me do this, you two!

Bill

I love the way people are having a go at your lyrics. I would like to see a International  movement formed called
If Sunshine Were Mine. With all sorts of musicians giving their take on your lyrics to that song  and putting them up on soundcloud. I have put my version up on  soundcloud under Peatle Jville which I think is not that good but the best I could do so at the moment I place myself at third place getter.
So far three countries have submitted I would like to hear more from every where. Mo and Phill love your versions.
I hope more New Zealanders would give it ago as the Northern Hemisphere has got the lead at the moment.

do you have string your guitar upside down to play down there?

Re: Can Someone Suggest 3 CHords For Me, Please?

Down here we strum by the nut & play the chords by the soundhole.
Usually while standing on our head.

Hi Peatle

Forgive the lateness of the reply, I am only just awake and wanted to make sure I was making sense before I answered. smile

First, thanks for that beautiful rendition of the song. As I wrote on the Cloud, it makes me think of a Jazz tune. Am I right in that is your style of playing, or is it all-encompassing.

I had to smile, when I read your idea. I related it to my wife Dondra and she smiled from ear to ear that a few words of love would create such a stir of emotions and such pretty music.

Later today, I plan to add your version to the blog, if I have your permission.

Thanks again for those very kind words, Pete

Your new friend

Bill
