Water Rats April 19 - Song List

edited January 2 in Events
New list for those attending Water Rats;

@Fuengi @lovestrat74 @peteri @Tone71 @Flanging_Fred @Jonathangus @customkits @grappagreen @springhead ;;
@McToot @Bridgehouse @markblagdon ;;


Song choices so far for those definitely attending shown below.  With the absence of Darthed we need to make sure we can cover singing for our choices, messrs Mark Blagdon and Bridgehouse have tentatively agreed to do some singing.  The aim is to come up with 20 solid choices from this list and hopefully give each song nominee first refusal of which parts on their own choices.

Not mentioned in here but there was some discussion about some classic radiohead, fake plastic trees or the bends, just need to find someone to sing it!

Can those who have not suggested any suggest at least one, you don't have to know the solo's etc just pick the song and particularly whether you have an interested in vocals!

    I suggested the following in a previous post;

    Times Like These - Foo Fighters
    If You Tolerate This - Manic Street Preachers
    Take Me Out - Franz Ferdinand
    I Predict A Riot - Kaiser Chiefs

    Happy to play and sing BV's on these.

    Si

    I Saw Her Standing There would be good for one.  I'll try and think of some more.

    Need to confer with Fuengi Jr on song choice! Arcade Fire Rebellion looks a possibility!

    Right. After much discussion, several glasses of wine (me only) and a trawl through my record collection Herbie (aka Fuengi Jr) and I have decided we'd like to take a stab at Yellow by Coldplay.

    So I mentioned in the other thread, maybe ‘Crossroads’ by Cream to give me a reason to finally learn (some of) the solo plus seemed like a decent track for a few people to take a turn or something. 

    Had also mentioned Pearl Jam ‘Alive’ if anyone else fancies doing it with me but would be just as happy playing any Black Crowes or even more Cream type stuff depending on what anyone else might fancy doing.

    Been uploading old tracks I recorded ages ago and hopefully some new noodles here.

    Cheers chaps will update the spreadsheet tomorrow.  I like crossroads and yellow both good options. Never played Saw her standing there but like the song.

    @lovestrat74 @Tone71 @Flanging_Fred @Jonathangus sorry if youhave put any ideas on the other thread, I couldn't see any but there are many pages, sorry if I've missed but have you got any thoughts for songs, looking to do a spreadsheet of two songs each.

    Nice one, I'm bringing Miss Munckee so will put a song choice of hers to sing instead of mine.  Might need some brave volunteers though its not likely to be the normal sort of suggestions! : )

    Hi, I added Ain’t No Love in the Heart of the City, from Whitesnake as a potential second song on the other thread.  Mainly beause  everything’s is simple, and gives the opportunity for one or 2 improvised solos over simplechords, which I think would be quite fun for any of us to have a go at as it’s basic Aminor pentatonic.  No need to copy Micky Moody or Bernie Marsden’s professional solos.
    i think tha would be quite a fun thing for a jam

    but I don’t mind any way :)

    happy to isng on All Night Long, and or this one

    OK, I'll chuck a couple into the mix for those of us who don't choose to solo much:

    29 x The Pain - The Wildhearts
    Die Laughing - Therapy?

    And one I reckon is singable for me - Under the Bridge.

    Last time we all chose 2 songs each and created a playlist, then said what parts we would like to play on in what capacity (vocals, bass, lead etc) and learnt our parts. 

    It worked really well with the main focus on fun and helping bedroom and non regular players to leave the house and play with others there is no room for an ego that's for sure.

    Its also nice to have the other studios downstairs to practise and mingle in, just a great day and I'm looking forward to seeing the song list.

    Thanks for pulling this together munckee 
    is there a full list of potentials yet for us to +1 the ones we’d like to join in on? The format of the first post has gone haywire on my iPad so I can’t quite work it out.

    Will post an updated spreadsheet later, I just copied and pasted from excel previously, if there is a smarter way of doing it let me know (I know obvs just checking you lot know!)

    In terms of choosing songs, there are 15 attendees and my plan is for each to have a choice on the list with the person who's song choice getting first dibs of what part they want, then agree on poss 5 more songs between us, then fill the spots on those and the other slots on the first 15.

    Re the payments just so I can check @soma1975 ; is your surname that of a football team or are your initials BS?

    Further to my earlier post have checked back to last years Water Rats and we had 22 songs including second goes.  If each of the 15 make one confirmed song choice (subject to having a volunteer to sing) and have first dibs of parts that will leave I think an extra 5 songs to agree on. For those who came last year it was quite full on in the song room so having two songs less seems like a good idea.

    Suggestions to date, sorry if I have missed any:

    First rehearsal yesterday. Went ok. Looks like I'll be taking acoustic with Herbie playing the electric power chords and flourishes. 

    Bass, drums and vocals will need covering by others!

    I will make that your confirmed choice.  If you chaps want to do a run through some time pre water rats I'll nip over and play the bass line if that's any use.

    That would be good. I might need to borrow your Rat Pedal for the day too! ;-) I think that's what Jonny Buckland is using on the power chord section.
