Re: MARCH 2018 FSOTM - MALE & FEMALE NAMES

Right off the bat, I'm challenging Zurf to do "Dreamboat Annie" by Heart, as I think it would suit his guitar style and vocals (albeit in a male range,rather than a female range): video demo1, video demo2

Cheers

Re: MARCH 2018 FSOTM - MALE & FEMALE NAMES

OK I have not been here for a while so I am going to start March off with a cover of Jeff Gilpin song, although I have adapted the original to personalise for my Baby Girl, Donna:

That's a cool song, but I doubt that I'll learn it this month. I will put it in the queue for learning, though. I had never considered it, but I think you're right that it is in my wheelhouse at least picking wise. I could never sing so well as that, though! Not without rubbing the right kind of lamp, anyway. Another that popped out while digging around in lessons was Dog and Butterfly.  I loved that song back in the day and haven't heard it in a long, long time. It fits in perfectly with my Sissified 70's Folk/Pop genre.

Granted B chord amnesty by King of the Mutants (Long live the king).

Roger great to see you back joining in smile    The song you chose was great, you did justice to it and it really suited you.  I thoroughly enjoyed listening to it.  Great lyrics too.

Re: MARCH 2018 FSOTM - MALE & FEMALE NAMES

Roger Guppy really enjoyed your song. While others are living in the past, you have made a great version of the song to honor your Baby Girl, Donna. It is fresh and so very good.

Re: MARCH 2018 FSOTM - MALE & FEMALE NAMES

Neo ..... yep does seem very quiet in here with only you and Roger entering anything this month.  I have just got back on Monday from yet another trip way up north (once again) to yet another family funeral (3 since Christmas) hence not being onto any recordings myself.  So hoping now I am back, to be able to get onto it.

Thanks to you and Roger and Neo, wow you have once again earned the the title ~The Human Jukebox~ with all your contributions smile  I had a listen to your songs last night.  There were some in there I hadn't heard of before  so always good to hear new songs.  As for Julia Dream and Roxanne you made them interesting with the reverb or delay on? the effects definately added to the songs smile  Mrs Brown you`ve got a lovely daughter, was foot tapping material and the voices at the end made it interesting smile  Angie (a song I have always liked) you covered well and I found myself singing along with you.  Also congratulations on your original song Margaret`s Eulogy, anyone who writes an original deserves a medal.

Re: MARCH 2018 FSOTM - MALE & FEMALE NAMES

Well, I've already done Amie and The Weight for previous CFSOTM. I don't know any of the rest, and I just have not had time to learn anything new this month. So I hope it's OK if I go a little off script and do a different song that fits the theme but is from my regular repertoire of ridiculousness so that I can participate this month.

Here's Crocodile Rock. The name that's in the lyrics is "Susie."  https://soundcloud.com/user-35218982/cr … ock-cfsotm
