I'm working on a guitar/violin version of the song Hurt written by Nine Inch Nails and thought some of you may want to learn this song too. My guitar and the sheet music is in the key of C (The Johnny Cash version).

That was great.  Now I have to switch over to Safari so I can open the images to print them out.

Thank you

Hey Kevin, did you try right clicking on the distorted images above to select open in new tab or window? I tried it on a PC (7) with Windows Explorer and a Mac with Safari and Firefox. I was able to print a clear 8 1/2 by 11 that way plus was able to get a full page clear image in the browser on all three. If your browser isn't set to automatically view as full size image you can select zoom text only. Let me know if that helps. My wife scanned the images and she actually made the files way too big. I'll show her how to make web friendly image sizes.

You were right on your post on the Red Wing backing track thread about not being able to see options for adjusting sizes. There isn't a way to do that now on this forum when you use the upload attachment feature. The little image/media icons don't work anymore to upload direct from the computer anymore. Now you have to upload files to another web server and paste in the URL to be able to changes sizes. Probably not an option that too many people will use here.

By the way, I will be posting a new Red Wing backing track over on that thread today with the quality of this song here.

I printed out all the pages and downloaded the file of you playing.  I went to youtube and watched a video of Johnny Cash playing Hurt and was so struck by it I just sat here for some time before doing anything else.

 

If you like I could paste the link to the video of Johnny Case here.

 

I have to add, you played it wonderfully.

Cool Kevin...For sure add the video of Johnny Cash here. I think it will be a great song with violin for the vocals. Hope I can get my version up here before I leave town.

I can adjust the size of the media embedded here. Even if I log on as a regular user to test. After uploading the media you simply mark it and press the Insert/Edit Embedded Media icon above, check off the constrain proportions box then enter 16 on the right box.

Thank's for the info FM. I just remember that we used to upload from the computer with the image/media icons. Now I know we can still edit.

Thanks for caring. I know that the dang changes are a pain in the rear but most of them are probably for the best. I keep working on problems so that hopefully this forum will be faster and easier to use as time goes on.

I really like this song but there is one note I cannot play, it's an F, lower than a violin can play.  Do you think to play it as a G or to go up an octave on the whole song.  Would that sound bad. It might take away from the feeling of the song?

 

I tried to post this before but got a database error and the same thing happened last night. The only thing in common was I had he's a Pirate music open in a different window at the same time.

I know what part you're talking about Kevin. It's for the vocal part, "in the end". I just go D to G ( hardly bow the first G then strong on the 2nd G). It doesn't take from the song at all to me. The song may sound pretty cool up an octave going along with the guitar part. I'm going to try it.

 

Update: Well Kevin, it looks like it's just you and me learning this song so far. Just to help you along, I played 11 phrases on the 2nd verse instead of 10 phrases on the first verse. The first verse plays 2 phrases for the intro and I'm going to add slide guitar to my version and have a short lead before the 2nd verse starts.

Well the database error had nothing to do with you trying to post. It seems that the chat script is causing too many mysql connections which is causing it to lock up and reboot. I had to disable it now. Will tackle the problems when I get back from my gig in Key West.

I love this song, the Nine Inch Nails original was one of my favourite songs at school but I think it sounds more authentic coming from Johnny Cash.  It's the difference between the life experience of a young man and an old one.  I'm going to learn to play this asap, and I'll try and get my little brother to accompany when he next comes home 🙂
