Topic: SEPTEMBER 2022 FSOTM – HELP …. HOUSE …. ROAD …. SEA

A big Hi to everyone this month of SEPTEMBER, it`s a change of season worldwide, the start of SPRING for some countries in the Southern hemisphere and the beginning of FALL /AUTUMN in the Northern hemisphere.

So, for this month of SEPTEMBER, looking for SONGS with any of the following WORDS in them.  The WORDS are   HELP …. HOUSE …. ROAD …. SEA.

It can be a COVER SONG or an ORIGINAL SONG, it can have one of the words somewhere in the song or more than one of the words in the song, heck it can have all 4 of the words in the song if you want.

Here are some suggestions from members of Chordie. 
Help - The Beatles
Try a little kindness - Glen Campbell (has the words Road and Help in the song)
House of the rising sun - The Animals
Burning down the house - The Cardigans
On the road again - Willie Nelson 
Roadhouse – The Doors 
Hit The Road Jack – Ray Charles

Looking forward to seeing what you all come up with this month and remember, the above are only suggestions, you can COVER, perform an ORIGINAL even if its not been suggested.

READY!  SET!  GO!

I've got a song picked out - but my funny little honey is running out to get dinner tonight (we're both too tired to cook) and I need to get a shower.  Maybe I'll catch y'all tomorrow. It's just a fun little ditty written by Blake Shelton (or performed by, I suppose). The world won't be changed by when I record a September song.     

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

I was having a look through my Road songs, and saw this one has the words "Killer on the road", so here is Riders on the storm: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kpt7HRc15rg

Re: SEPTEMBER 2022 FSOTM – HELP …. HOUSE …. ROAD …. SEA

neophytte, nice performance by you both.  Your son is doing so well joining you.  Is this one you have posted before as it looked familiar?  The only thing in this recording I would change slightly is maybe to have the piano a bit louder or maybe the guitar a bit quieter, just so the full effect of the piano could come through as parts of it was hard to hear the piano.  Otherwise nicely done and suits your vocals.

Richard and Uncle Joesband great to see your videos on here. I have had to more of less stop playing guitar a health thing. So I will put up a song I wrote three years back, "Mountains To Sea."  I hope it makes sense as it's about the weird way songs come to me sometimes.

Good to see your out there performing unclejoesband, looks like you're thoroughly enjoying yourself.   Great to see you doing something you love.  P.S. if you get time, please give the other Chordians feedback on their efforts too smile

Peatle, wow, I loved the lyrics in this one, quite thought provoking.  I see you wrote it back in 2019 and what is very cool as the lyrics are still relatable today.  A very heartfelt song.  I listened very much to the words which grabbed me straight away.

Thank you, Jan and Jim for taking time to have a listen and give some feedback. Richard Morse if you are still out there in Chordie land I wish you all the best.

Thanks for the feedback; my son tends to hit those keys quite hard, so I asked him to turn it down abit, it might have been a bit too much as he also commented when he heard it that the piano was not loud enough. We used a single microphone so the balance is pretty much 'live' ... next time I might try with a recorder so I can balance out the instruments and voice.

Yes, I've posted this one before, but it relevant/on topic so I thought it would be a good (and easy!) first entry.

Ah, I haven't heard this song for years!! Probably the last time I lived with my mum and she put on her old Glen Campbell albums, and it's been a long time since I lived with her. I love open mic nights, and sounded like you had a small but appreciative crowd there for your performance.

I always love your videos, this one doesn't disappoint! And I hope your health is getting better!

Thank you, Richard, for checking my videos out. I hope it inspires people to have a go and make videos and music better than what I can do.

Here is my entry   - as usual - I used all the words.   
I posted it in songwriting as well

Time Whispers by Jim Kenyon


Verse 1


.




[C] It feels like we’ve been lost


[C]at sea for months


as I [F] sit in a house, that’s filled


with [C] everything but love


. [G][F][C]




[C]who was it who said,


[C]don’t build your house on sand ?


It will [F] crumble in the storms,


‘til there’s [C] nothing left, to speak of


.




Chorus


as [G] time whispers [F] love is slipping a[C]way


and [G] time whispers [F] love is slipping a[C]way


.




Verse 2


.




[C] Seems we’ve forgotten


[C] Why our lips have kissed


And how [F] our hearts used to beat


to [C]gether as one as one




[G][F][C]


[C] every road now feels lonely


[C] every word prays for help


What was [F]once, now is



gone , and the [C] passion is done


.




Chorus


as [G] time whispers [F] love is slipping a[C]way


and [G] time whispers [F] love is slipping a[C]way


.




Verse 3


.




[C] was it chances afraid to take


[C] promises we didn’t keep


maybe[F] secrets we didn’t share


or words [C] spoken long ago




[G][F][C]


[C] feelings that aren’t the same


[C] hearts with too much ache


Why this [F]love story has to end


guess we’ll [C] never know


.




Chorus


as [G] time whispers [F] love is slipping a[C]way


and [G] time whispers [F] love is slipping a[C]way


.




(fade out)




as [G] time whispers [F] love is slipping a[C]way


and [G] time whispers [F] love is slipping a[C]way

Good one Richard your guitar has an upright piano sound coming through which I like on this one. It's one of those songs in a pub singalong setting if people had a lyric sheet, I could imagine them singing along with you and it would sound great with your lead vocals and guitar as done on this video.     

Re: SEPTEMBER 2022 FSOTM – HELP …. HOUSE …. ROAD …. SEA

Richard
Very well done - I think there were a few times when you " let go" and sang like the boss!  Great guitar playing !

I think if you could have somehow increased the vocal and decreased the guitar it would have enhanced it.

In any case it  was a superb rendition o Bruce's song.

Just  had  a  listen to  Richard  on you  tube  nice  version of  a  Brucie  classic   just   a  little  too  loud  on the  guitar  in places  but still a  good  cover  .Well  done .

Thanks - I'll be doing one of those this coming Tuesday, but the song will be "Lion sleeps tonight" ...

Thank you for the feedback; I'm slack and am using a single mic ... I should set up a mic for vocals, DI the guitar and record it on the Zoom, then mix it back later, but (as you can see at the end of the video where my son pops his arm out) my time boxes are limited. One day I'll get it sorted, I did do it previously a couple of times ...

Also added this one from Crowded House - https://youtu.be/Dv9RVOJ-YQY  unfortunately was trying out a new mic, which gave a phaser style sound to the clip, which doesn't sound too good.

Has the word road in it.
