Music Post 009
Finally, my rough cut of Superchunk’s Package Thief. It was a long time in the making. Well over the week time limit I’m supposed to give myself.
I used YouTube (song video), iTunes (song download), and Songsterr (song chords) as my research references.
Superchunk is such an obscure band from the 90’s that I was surprised to find their song on Songsterr. It was a huge help with finding out the chord progression.
If you are unfamiliar with Songsterr, just Google it and you’ll see that it is a site that helps you learn a song by showing you the chords as the song plays.
I texted a copy of my finished product to my friend who is a Superchunk fan and he dug it. Probably because he’s my friend. He said he sounded darker than the original. It may be that the guitar has a deeper distorted sound from the original.
My plan is to make the songs my renditions, so I guess I accomplished that.
This is a rough cut with many warts. It is complete and I’m moving on to my next song.
