Sadness part 1 – ENIGMA

Oh, you remember Enigma and Sadness part 1?

A big hit!

Amazing then but the sound has aged, at least for my part, I’m not so happy about the pan flutes anymore.

// Enigma och Sadness part 1. Väldigt populärt då men soundet har definitivt åldrats. Panflöjter deluxe.

Lana Del Rey – Summertime sadness

Lana Del Rey – Summertime Sadness

Just a wonderful song of a cool artist. Love her deep dark voice 🙂 and of course the sadness.

No, I don’t present you the latest artists. My main focus is being on the other side, I’m focusing on producing music. But of course I need the input and some artists are very inspiring.

Some lyrics:

Kiss me hard before you go
Summertime sadness
I just wanted you to know
That, baby, you’re the best

I got my red dress on tonight
Dancing in the dark in the pale moonlight
Done my hair up real big beauty queen style
High heels off, I’m feeling alive

Oh, my God, I feel it in the air
Telephone wires above are sizzling like a snare
Honey, I’m on fire, I feel it everywhere
Nothing scares me anymore

// Lana Del Rey- Summertime sadness.

Djup röst och melankoli, kan det bli bättre? Nej, trodde inte det 🙂

Inget nytt men mitt fokus är att producera inte konsumera. Och inspiration behövs ju där också.

 

Regina Spektor – You’ve got time

I want to share with you music that I love, and Regina Spektor is such a wonderful artist!

Here’s the song “You’ve got time”, that apperas as the theme song of the Netflix series “Orange is the New Black”.

Imagine that my music has been compared to her, *blush*. The lyrics:

The animals, the animals
Trapped, trapped, trapped ’till the cage is full
The cage is full
Stay awake
In the dark, count mistakes
The light was off but now it’s on
Searching the ground for a bitter song
The sun is out, the day is new
And everyone is waiting, waiting on you
And you’ve got time
And you’ve got time

Think of all the roads
Think of all their crossings
Taking steps is easy
Standing still is hard
Remember all their faces
Remember all their voices
Everything is different
The second time around

The animals …

// En mycket bra låt av Regina Spektor, “You’ve got time”.

Oktoberstämman i #Uppsala

Ett roligt tillfälle att lyssna på folkmusik och att även prova på folkmusik med gitarr på Oktoberstämman.

Jag och min man tog med oss gitarrerna och deltog i en liten workshop.

Senare var vi på Väsen konsert som var ett jubileum med andra musiker som deltog.

Got a secret, can you keep it?

I want to share this amazing song with you from the Pierces, two musicians that also are systers. It’s called Secret.

Lyrics

Got a secret
Can you keep it?
Swear this one you’ll save
Better lock it in your pocket
Taking this one to the grave
If I show you then I know you won’t tell what I said
‘Cause two can keep a secret if one of them is deadWhy do you smile like you’ve been told a secret?
Now you’re telling lies ’cause you have sworn to keep it
But no one keeps a secret
No one keeps a secret

Why when do our darkest deeds do we tell?
They burn in our brains, become a living hell
Because everybody tells
Everybody tells

Got a secret
Can you keep it?
Swear this one you’ll save
Better lock it in your pocket
Taking this one to the grave
If I show you then I know you won’t tell what I said
‘Cause two can keep a secret if one of them is dead

Look into my eyes, now you’re getting sleepy
Are you hypnotized by secrets that you’re keeping?
I know what you’re keeping
I know what you’re keeping

Got a secret
Can you keep it?
Swear this one you’ll save
Better lock it in your pocket
Taking this one to the grave
If I show you then I know you won’t tell what I said
‘Cause two can keep a secret if one of them is dead

You swore you’d never tell x 4

Got a secret
Can you keep it?
Swear this one you’ll save
Better lock it in your pocket
Taking this one to the grave
If I show you then I know you won’t tell what I said
‘Cause two can keep a secret if one of them is dead(X3)

Yes, two can keep a secret if one of them is dead
Yes, two can keep a secret if one of us is dead

 

This is the song:

A guitarist guide to jewels

This is totally a serious post!

So what jewels can you wear when playing the guitar without them being in the way of playing?

This is an informative picture that can guide you :

image

So as for bracelets you can wear them on your left hand but not on the right (only if they are very tight) because you will accidentally touch the chords.

As for rings go for it on the right hand but avoid them on your point finger and thumb on the left. You will use the pointing finger for barre chords and your thumb for muting the E chord.

At last for you wearing necklaces prefer a short one rather than a long. A long one will not be seen and will bump your guitar making annoying sounds!

// Guiden till gitarristens smycken. Kolla på bilden ovan!

Armband på vänster hand då de kommer emot strängarna om du har armband på höger hand. När det gäller ringar funkar alla fingrar på höger hand men däremot undvik på pekfinger och tumme. Det kommer störa barre-ackord respektive dämpning.

Välj ett kort halsband som syns när du spelar och inte kommer slå mot baksidan av gitarren.

Tipsen gäller såklart både kvinnliga och manliga smyckesbärare!

Play that funky music!

I like this concept I saw at a hotel bar in Uppsala. Over the pickup there’s this sign saying that you are free to play music.

Lovely initiative not only as a nice deco detail but also for the guests.
