Awh @Feathers you have refreshed my memory.
I adore that song... My problem is that part at the end...(GASP!!!). a bit fast for me. But I am glad you brought it up because it is in my stack and it is my goal to play that one.... as I looooooove it.
You could just do Part A.
Opportunity is often missed because it wears suspenders and looks like hard work.
Right. I am not a happy bunny! I "bit off more than I can chew" with this one. I considered Carmina Burana. Danse Macabre. Nahhhh - all to easy (spot my sarcasm there). Instead, I had a grand plan for my magnum opus - let's do a track from the Rocky Horror show ! Ahhh... nice, I thought. I found a "not bad" MIDI version of "Over at the Frankenstein Place". I planned several parts to it - to separately overdub Janet, Brad and Riff-Raff.... I even created an outline story-board - no sheet music or anything like that - I was just gonna "wing it"
So.... I never take the path most often walked, do I ? Nope. Well, it turned into a monster. I dropped the MIDI to D (it was in E). But Riff-Raff needs a F3#, so I detuned G by a semitone. I also wanted to bring something "new" (for me) into it - so I planned to work some higher positions for Janet - but that's still giving me trouble. Anyway - I was reading @Worldfiddler post earlier today - and boy - was I getting MAD at this thing - so I "calmed down" (just a little) and did a quick take (no vid on it yet) of the tune from the first B&J / Chorus above.
I'm FAR from happy with it.... VERY far from happy, it's full of issues, many of which are due to me being in such a bad temper with it, but, it's a line in the sand. It will get better..... When the final version, with video is ready to post, rest assured, I will, as I think I mentioned to @Barry NOT be dressing for the part...
I'm off to play half a dozen "fall-back" tunes to get my head sorted out (oh, and Bill, RE-TUNE THE G) LOL
I seriously recommend not copying my mistakes. D'oh -
Please make your own, different mistakes, and help us all learn :-)
