OK, I'm still trying to make all this stuff work....I've been playing around with GarageBand, and working on the intro to Supertramp's "Bloody Well Right". There are some mistakes, it's not perfect, not up to speed, etc......but hey. It's there, and it's uploaded, and I'm kind of proud that I got this far.......

Hey, kokomo, that was terrific! I'm a huge Supertramp fan. You should submit it for our recital.

Did you figure the intro out by ear, or is there sheet music for it somewhere?

Parts of it were learned by ear, but I had to find a transcription to get the more complex stuff. I also used Amazing Slow Downer to get the timing down for the really fast riffs. It's about 75% of the record speed. The original recording is REALLY fast.

That's wonderful, I want more.

I'm also a great fan of Supertramp. You learn it by ear ? I think Roger Hodgson said that he only play by ear.

Hey kokomo nice playing! I have the original song on my computer and can honestly say that you did it justice. Thanks for sharing! \:D

Here's another one....Gold star for guessing the song and artist (the performer is still me). First, you have to close your eyes as soon as you click the link, since I think it shows the title.....


What song is this? (no fair peeking)
