I have to say, i love nothing more in the world than going to my dads just to hang out and sing together. We used to do this all the time until recently, we have both been so busy and there hasn't been enough time in the day to get together just to have a mini jam session.
Our jam sessions would be a lot better if I knew how to play an instrument correctly, but my piano skills are minimal and it takes me at least a week to learn a song. Plus, its no fun that there aren't any YouTube videos for songs we sing together. I've been begging a friend who teaches piano to come over and help me with songs forever now. I guess I'll just have to be up her ass before she'll actually come over and teach me something.
I'm just so impatient!
When i find a song i like, i want to learn it, and i want to learn it now!!! (stomps feet and whines like a child) I don't want to wait for someone to finally put up a YouTube tutorial, i dont want to sit around watching videos on how to play chords and learn to read music and what not. Thats just way to much damn work!
Even though, i know in order to get really good at the piano and play pieces by ear, i need to learn all the basics. But like i said, im lazy as fuck and impatient when it comes to things i love doing, or know im going to love doing once i learn them.
Any who, i decided to share with you guys a video my dad and I made today, its not anything special, i mainly wanted to see the video quality on my new camera but it actually came out pretty good. In my opinion at least.
My allergies are terrible, and to my surprise when i listened to video it actually gave a cool little rasp to my voice and didnt sound as bad as i thought. I should try and sing more often when my throat is dry, or maybe not.
Without any further rambling from yours truly, here is Angel From Montgomery originally sung by Bonnie Rait...or John Prine...or both. Not really sure...i just know those are the more famous singers who played the song. Its a little different from the original, because my dad likes to make the music his own, but i actually love his little spin on it. Oh shit, i said i wouldnt ramble...and there i go.
Okay. here it is. :-) I hope you enjoy it! Tell me what you guys think!
