Topic: THE GIRL WHO PLAYED THE AIR GUITAR

this song was inspired by Peatle, sort of a true story. i haven't recorded it yet but i am in the process...

The Girl Who Played The Air GuitarUndefined


[C] I was playing country [G] music.


[C] Everybody likes to [G] dance in line


[F] Then I played a song that's [C] country but [Am] rocks.


[D7] They started jiving. She [G] moved like a fox.




[C] When I saw her in the [G] corner.


[C] She was playing an [G] air guitar.


[F] They say that girls don't play [C] it. It's just for [Am] boys.


[D7] She knew the chords. And [G] she enjoyed.




(CHORUS)




[F] The girl who played the [Am] air guitar.


[E7] Looking like a rock and roll [F] star.


[Am] She had the moves. She [G] had the face.


[E] Just like the air [F] guitar she played.


[C] Ooh ooh. [G] Ooh ooh.


[F] Just like the air [C] guitar she played.





[C] I played some songs I [G] learned at school.


[C] Fascinated [G] by her moves.


[F] She held her air [C] guitar up [Am] high.


[F] She looked so cool, she [G] made me cry.


[E] Nobody in the room was looking at [Am] her.


[F] Nobody else knew what she was [G] doing.


[E] An air guitar don't cost that [Am] much these days.


[D7] They didn't know what they were [G] losing.


[C] I looked for her when the [G] show was done.


[C] I checked the bar but [G] she was gone.


[F] Her air guitar [C] slung across her [Am] back.


[D7] Walking down the road and she [G] wasn't walking fast.


(CHORUS)

Brilliant Phill as I listened to your song I could visualize it being a scene from a movie. That is a top song, 
Cheers

Re: THE GIRL WHO PLAYED THE AIR GUITAR

Thanks Richard. It's amazing what a bit of reverb on the voice and chorus on the guitar can do!

Re: THE GIRL WHO PLAYED THE AIR GUITAR

Thanks Pete. You're an inspiration to us all and your poem, as you know, was the inspiration for this song. Out of the mouth of babes!
Of course it's based on true events, though the names have been changed to protect the innocent? Lol

Re: THE GIRL WHO PLAYED THE AIR GUITAR

Loved this one, Phill ... reminded me of some lines in "Ballroom Blitz" by Sweet, about a girl in the corner:

"And the girl in the corner let no one ignore her, 'cause she thinks she's the passionate one."

"And the girl in the corner said 'Boy, I wanna warn ya, it'll turn into a ballroom blitz.' "

"And the girl in the corner is everyone's woman,  she could kill you with a wink of her eye."

Nice work, Phill !     

Re: THE GIRL WHO PLAYED THE AIR GUITAR

i never realized the similarity with Ballroom Blitz, word wize at least. i don't think people realized that Sweet were actually quite a heavy metal band guided into the pop world, before a lot of the metal bands came to the fore.

i'm glad you like my effort. thanks for the review

Phill

That was exceptionally marvelous.
Your voice changes, tempo changes, chord changes all were superbly dazzling.

Great song.

Re: THE GIRL WHO PLAYED THE AIR GUITAR

Thanks Jim. You're over exaggerating the voice, I like the tempo changes and the simple once through unplugged way of recording.

Re: THE GIRL WHO PLAYED THE AIR GUITAR

Phill - after listening to this a 4th and 5th time - I have really come to like this song - it is really, really good !

At least two or three times during the song I got a little whisp of David Bowie in there. 

If I were to be critical at all ( and I have absolutely no credentials to actually be critical)  I think the end of the song last two lines - where you go " mmmm - mmm"it sounded a little more "gruntish" than I would expect - kinda sounded grumpy  or mad -.... I was thinking it should be a little more like "woo hoo" or something -  a little more upbeat - excited about that that girl. ( although it is possible that you were emphasizing the fact that she was gone- I don't know!  smile  )
Again, other than that - I thought this was a masterpiece  !!!

Thanks Phil.
