Just thought id share, as I ended last night being quite chuffed with myself
I wanted to surprise my Wife with a gift which was personal, and something outside of the normal (for me) Christmassy type gifts. So, I decided to try and play and record/burn to CD, an instrumental version of the song that was our first dance at our Wedding reception. I have a quick search around t'internet but couldn't find an appropriate tab (cant read music), as the artist never performed it in that way. Id essentially be replacing vocals with guitar. Im sure there must be instrumental versions out there, but weirdly, I wanted as little 'help' as possible so didn't make an effort to search them out.
Last night I set about trying to work it out by ear, which is something ive never done before, and it actually turned out ok. I haven't worked out the whole song yet, but I do have the verses down, and the main chorus, which was way more than I thought id be able to do when I picked the guitar up last night. Its going to take a lot of practise to get it sounding polished as I still have fingers that like to wander off and do their own thing at times, but ill get there.
Anyway, just thought id share, as its reading the advice people on here have given to others in the past that helped me reach the decision to try it. Ill post a link to the recording as soon as I can do a good enough job of it.
...oh by the way, the song is 'A Thousand Years' by Christina Perry.
...told you it could be vomit inducing
