So me and my freind have started playing music together. We're big music guys, and we figured between us we play enough instruments to actually do something cool.
A little bass
Digeridoo (heh) and I know I'm forgetting some stuff.
and I can fake recorder , xylophone, and piano.
We also can both fake a bunch of otehr instruments, enough to get us by with the stuff we're doing. So the two songs we've been working on aren't your typical songs kids are playing now. We've got this song, Riu Riu Chiu down, and we're working on this other song, Dulaman. For those not familiar:
This is a really really bad version of Riu Riu Chiu but you get the idea:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YIYIhUsamj0
And this is Dulaman (AWESOME song):http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z92B5U30Yw0
So, for example, in Riu Riu Chiu, (we downloaded the sheet music for both these songs.) I'm playing guitar and he's playing bass, and I'm either playing the soprano part or some chords, and he's playing the bass part or the melody over my changes. It sounds really cool, and he also plays the melody on the xylophone over the changes in some parts. In Dulaman we just play the outer two parts mostly and it still sounds awesome.It's jsut a lot of fun and really cool and something different to do. But we need more songs. So I've come to you guys.
What I need is more songs that are kind of like these? Actually, they really dont have to be anyhting like these, just in kind of a traditional style. Dont even worry about us not being able to do it in two parts, we can take a challenge.
Thanks a lot for any reccomendations. Also, for clarification on the title, we're not playing these songs in heavy metal or anything, we're doing it with an acoustic guitar and an acoustic bass for now, trying to keep it at least semi-legit.
