Here she goes, list-making again. This time, not a wish list. Things I’ve already transcribed.
I logged into Noteflight (free online music writing software) – and laughed.
Here’s what I have listed there.
- Walking on Sunshine – Katrina & the Waves
- Viva la Vida – Coldplay
- Madness – Muse
- La Reina – Walt Kuhlman
- The Swan – Saint-Saens
- Home, Sweet Home – H.R. Bishop
In case you don’t know the context, here is mine:
- favor for a friend. I will never ever play this. But Gamu’s video made me cry. Gamu – X Factor
- Fun for looping #2!
- Fun for looping #1!
- Melody transcription for mandolin orchestra. A song a friend wrote about warring bus lines in Latin America. La Reina
- Grandpa’s courtship song for Grandma. I played it at his memorial (sniff).
- One of Grandpa’s final requests. I didn’t know it at the time, but I learned it for him.
Oh, I am so all over the place! Musically speaking, of course.
Now I am trying to figure out how to do THIS: Toxicity
The drummer Meytal Cohen has covers of “Roxanne” and “Smells like Teen Spirit.” I wish they had violin parts, because those are the next songs I’d like to transcribe.
But for now, I am off to transcribe some Beatles music. “Here comes Sunshine” as recessional and about six others…..Beatles music is suprisingly NOT simple, ya know?!
Addendum: Just found Teen Spirit! No video, but who needs one when you have a picture like THIS?
