1) Some smart person once posted a message I've been searching for unsuccessfully… it went something like this:
"If it's major, play minor! If it's minor, play major!…"
I should have bookmarked it or made a copy, can anyone tell me the rest?
2) Has anyone ever done an analysis about "busy" songs with a lot of chords and how to determine which changes can simply be ignored?
I play with a clarinet player who, believe it or not, enjoys playing, and can actually wail on, crazy old 1920's songs like "Tiptoe Through the Tulips With Me". (Perhaps you are old enough to remember the crazy falsetto singer/ukulele player Tiny Tim's big hit in the 1960's?)
It is my job to solo on tunes like this with no rhythm guitar, since I am the trio's rhythm guitarist… and I find that trying to spell out all them chords ain't really workin' for me… ?
Any ideas would be gratefully accepted... :?
