Topic: Lime In De Coconut

Mr. BGD,

Along with Zurf and Lady Amy, you may have created a "sonic" monster! I am having so much fun with the Snowball, the guitar and soon the amp! The accoustic will be amped as soon as I can find the correct pickup, Z.

I don't want to give the impression I am fishing for compliments (truly, I hear nothing complimentary unless y'all think it's me having a good time), so what I would like to do is maybe just get y'all to go to my section of SC every now and then and see what's new and comment as you see fit - or don't - it's fine.

A thing about the "funny" stuff. With all the errors, I just thought it was easier to sing and play funnily for now.

There are about 5 songs I want to do for you which are serious in nature, but those need serious practice as they involve more than 2 or 3 chords, so they will be in the future and include Jim's "Soul Stability" (I haven't forgotten, brother!:) ).

Anyway, a little bit of trivia to go along with "Coconut". If you've ever heard Nilsson's original version, you may have heard someone in a high-pitched voice singing "Dooooctor!". That was Harry's friend John Lennon.

Love You Guys and Ladies!


PS: Let it run after that last chord to hear the forceful exhalation indicating I made it through that last take! smile

Gidday Bill
Your first song was good,this one is not just a step forward, but  several steps forward.
You`re coming to terms with recording and your confidence  is growing.
As for advice,well who am i to offer advice?But all i can say is, do songs that work for you.
Try everything, but your favourite songs may not be the type of song that you do best.
rock on!

Re: Lime In De Coconut

I don't understand it! I left a reply, in fact the second post, but it's gone..?.strange, though my WiFi has been playing silly beggars of late! I shall try and remember what I wrote.

I've loved Nilson since a friend played me the point way back. You've done a great job Bill...well done, I remember commenting on your ad-lib "had enough yet" answer...no, more please     

Ask not what Chordie can do for you, but what you can do for Chordie.

Seriously though, Bill, you've embodied the fun of this song with your playing style & singing. (insert standing ovation here) Well done, indeed!
