2019 tFB Western Jam Song List Discussion

What's Hot
FunkfingersFunkfingers Frets: 4013
This is the Discussion where confirmed attendees can nominate the song(s) that they would like to play on the day at Factory Studios, Bristol. 

Please include;
  • The title of the song.
  • The artiste version or arrangement on which your performance will be based.
  • The instrument part(s) that you can play for that song.*
  • Whether you can sing that song.
  • The key in which you need that song to be performed.


I am toying with the idea of a transferrable voting system. Nominate one preferred song and a couple of alternatives. That way, it might be possible to reach wider agreement over what should be played on the day.

If, for example, there were ten requests for Status Quo cover songs, it should be possible to reach a compromise over which song(s) people prepare thoroughly for the session day. 

Take it as read that certain perennial favourite songs are likely to be nominated. The only decision to make will be the unruly bickering over who gets to play on them. :)




* Volunteers to play the bass guitar part will be especially welcome. This would give the 'house bassist du jour an occasional break for food, coffee, lav and smoking.

    Rock n Roll
    Led Zeppelin (Album version, LZ IV)
    Rhythm / Lead Guitar
    Probably not but I'll try to growl it out if needed
    Key of E works fine or Eb if anyone can be arsed tuning down

    As alternatives:

    Bad Company
    Bad Company (Album Version)
    Rhythm / Lead Guitar
    Not a chance
    Key of Eb (This can be transposed quite easily to other keys which aren't so difficult to sing. If you can do Neil Young, you can probably do this but it's not exactly easy in Eb)


    If you want Blood (You got it)
    AC/DC (Highway to Hell)
    Rhythm / Lead Guitar
    Not a chance and it can't be transposed really. Needs a good singer to pull this off.
    Key of A.

    These are just suggestions to start with that are do-able.
    I have no real burning desire to play these or any songs for that matter, I want to be there to help on the day and back people up if needed so whatever songs I learn and prepare will only be for that and if I don't get to play any songs on the day that's perfectly cool. 
    I might be up to other stuff there on the day if I'm not needed to play and if that's possible.

    If I am then I'll be happy to step in and play/sing whatever I can. See how it goes.

    I can play bass but have no equipment here to practice with.
    If I can borrow a bass and a practice amp I can brush up enough to cover bass guitar on the day, again if needed.

    I can also bring a comprehensive tool kit and fix/set up whatever is needed on the day if anyone needs that.

    Comfortably numb
    Pink Floyd (The Wall album version)
    Lead or rhythm guitar
    Vocals if needed, although it’d be Gil-less rather than Gilmour.
    Bm

    or:
    All right now
    Free (Fire and Water album version)
    Lead guitar or bass
    No vocals, I cannot sing this
    A

    or:
    Motorcycle emptiness
    Manics (preferably the Forever Delayed version 5:06 edit)
    Lead guitar
    No vocals, can’t sing this either!
    E


    I can play bass on a couple of other songs too if that’d help, provided they’re not Jaco levels of difficulty.

    Tell ya what, let's split the bass guitar duties on that one between us. I'll play the verses if you take the choruses and solos. ;)

    Hey I've got a bass and happy to spot where needed.  My main instrument is guitar so it'll be fun for me to play bass.  I can sing in a high rock voice and do lead guitar too.  Happy to help out wherever

    Thank you. Your offer to spot for the song nominations of others is most welcome. Do not forget to nominate a song or three for yourself.

    I'm not too fussed what I get up too as I've done a fair few of these jams now. I'd like to do some bass, and sing some stuff or even hit the pots and pans if drummer needs a break (as long as you don't mind a four to the floor beat with a few fills)!

    I'll hit up a guitar if there's space on something I know, or bash out some rhythm while singing. Think of me as a shit version of @roberty and you'll be on the right track! I'll be lower in the vocal range I've no doubt.

    As for nominations; I'll chuck in a couple of jam classics / easy thrashes that have room for interesting stuff. I know I can sing these, and play if required: 

    Sit Down - James 
    I can sing this and play the little lead fills / mini solo, or bash out rhythm or bass 

    Teenage Kicks (duh) 
    Sing and either rhythm or bass

    Girl from Mars - Ash

    Sing and rhythm
