A little bridge after the halfway mark, use your imagination and have fun with it!
Sounds very familiar
Think Alicia Keys
Alicia Keys Show Me Love.
I never heard it before. I like her melody which happens to be pure E major pent in the key of E.
Not by accident, this is the first four chords in Pachabel's Canon in D. It's also the first four bars of Basketcase by Greenday, the first four bars of The Laverne & Shirley show, and on and on.
But Alicia Keys succeeded in putting her own twist on it.
If you like to play musical quotes in your soloing this bt is a goldmine.
You are really showing some love. I love the blues tinge you drape on the E major tonality. Good, Oh yea, great tone for this.
Hmm, I'm just sitting around,,, time for me to play! First more caffeine.
@Mjark - Nice "Slowhand" take. In fact, when I watch those videos that you make, I am amazed that you can play all those notes without moving your hands once! But seriously, an enjoyable take. I was wondering what you were going to do with the bridge and the chord approach worked.
Casino neck pickup with a touch of tremolo.
It's a little twist on her song, No One.
Whoops, I wasn't thinking of Alicia.
@Mjark - Sweet lines and tone from the get go.
@guitarsophist - Nice tone and trem very pleasant.
@Mellencaster - You rawked it, Mike!
Not quite, "No One" with embellishments.
That’s three tracks. I wanted to create some “space”. One for each scale degree.
@Mjark - Dig that tone and those easy going Southern Blues-Rock lines Mark.
@guitarsophist - Telling a story with pretty phrasing GS. Emotively sweet.
@fendrguitplayr - Snarky, sassy vibrato and tone Mike. Sweet chord work and melodic theme.
@Mellencaster - Whoa, that first note knocked me outa' my chair. Nice twist/take on this track. It's always cool to see the different interpretations. Nice rockin' and cool outro!
Mellencaster definitely beat me to the idea of channeling Neal Schon. If I have time I'm going to have to come up with another approach....
Pachelbel's chord progression seems to have given us a wide range interpretation
@Mjark - Very nice phrasing and tone, Mark.
@guitarsophist - I love tremolo and the tone, well phrased and a sweet sounding red Casino too.
@fendrguitplayr - Nice keys played and sweet stratty tone and pleasantly played.
@Alan L Cole - Melodic phrasing with the second guitar track has a classical feel. Nicely played . Alan!
Very cool sounding guitar vocals, Alan. I especially liked what you played over the bridge.
Lol, I admit I don't know Alicia Keys. But I did learn she loves Pachabel's Canon, so much she uses it in a number of her songs.
Show me love, Someone you loved, No One are all similar. No One is in E, Someone You Loved is in Ab. Show Me Love is the one I chose for the melody in my version,, I'm sooo confused.
