Covers ~ MKE Guitar Group

In the depth of August, here come the Covers. We have been rocking lately. Come and sing. Bring any popular cover and we will try it. Make 12 copies or more. We are back at Von Trier. They are great. Old time songs, Van Halen, country, we will try. Until next week, keep on rocking. Think about originals too, in Sep. :)

    Hi, I'm an intermediate guitar player not ready for the stage. I would like to fool around on it without so much as a class, that it being somewhat of a communal thing. I hope I am not in the wrong place?

      Coming to covers Matt? If so, which song/songs will you bring?

      September 15, 2014

    • Matthew M.

      for covers planning something over even my head, but do-able, indy-style? working right now on singing and playing along to; Speaking Portuguese by Blessed Feathers. (wished was still on radio.) i liked performing up last time to reactions which asked, "why'd i just do that" at all? :) some of you guys are Quite Good, others beat to your own drum because of personal conviction to be stood for by hobby, performance or artistry. as a kid, all it took for me.

    Kevin, what's the deal w/ this Tuesday??

    August 24, 2014

    • Julio

      We do the covers and originals once a month. So originals in one week from Tuesday, then covers two weeks after that. I'm sure Kevin will make a post about originals soon.

    I forgot to say, I haven't payed guitar in so long, I don't even know if I remember a simple 8-Bar Blues. No point in bringing my guitar.

      What is your song without your guitar?

      August 22, 2014

  • Linda G.

    It was my first time, and I came to check it out. Unfortunately I had to come late. While it was going on I felt out of place. When the group was breaking up, though, a couple people introduced themselves to me. That made me feel a little more comfortable. If I come next time, I hope people are ok with classic folk songs. They're great to sing along to. I particularly love musicals.

    I thought we rocked it. More songs next time. But the night lit up with creativity and group cohesion. See you next time!!

    August 20, 2014

    • James S.

      Or just have a few easy to follow songs like that Wagon wheel song where you don't need the print out. In case we run out of tab.

  • Kevin

    Wow. Lots of comments and questions. This will be fun. Bring copies and we can share. We do sing together. As usual we can tune and talk and then get singing. I feel good and I hope you all do too! 7-10 tonight.

    I've never been to one. Can I just come? Is bringing a Fake Book ok?

    Bring written lyrics to pennyroyal bro. You can sing with me, no worries bro Ill let you shine when your voice gets greased. I used to sing " Better than Vedder" in my prime but smoking and lack of practice .....I dont really know anymore, but somehow something magical always seems to happen when the situation calls for it. Print the lyrics n be there early so we can rehearse your song. Im jacked up bro! Anybody else?

    1 · August 12, 2014

  • Matthew M.

    August 12, 2014

  • Craig Maier ".

    August 12, 2014

  • Craig Maier ".

    August 12, 2014

  • Matthew M.

    ooh, rhythm portion for Pennyroyal Tea too!

    August 12, 2014

  • Matthew M.

    I know the rhythm section for Verse, Chorus, Verse by Nirvana. I'm also beginning to let my ear teach me by listening to personal album tracks like Non-Entity, Eraser (clean mix) by Nine Inch Nails. That's all though. Have trouble singing, playing @ same time to this point.

    August 12, 2014

  • Craig Maier ".

    Hey everyone. Sorry I keep bombing on originals. Although Im raw, I want to absorb one of these awesome covers sessions. I wont have any material, cuz I dont play covers...but we'll see how it plays out.....
