busking, learning, music

She was a showgirl…..

I love this song. I’d love to do a version on the street. So here’s how it starts. Listening to the song over and over. Learning the REAL words, in the right order. Working out the chords in a key I can sing.

I’ve been humming it to myself all day and now I’ve come home and got the chords…watched youtube a bit more… I want to do a latin style strum but that might be a bit much but who knows…. so more youtube…

Then practice, practice,rework, practice. And after all of that, it might not work. I did a version of The Logical Song. I love the song, I remember listening to it at home when I was a kid.  I worked it out, spent ages on it; it sucked. I tried it for a month thinking maybe it just needed to bed in a bit. It didn’t, it just sucked.

So I thought I’d share the process. Watch this space – I might even share some of my practice session with you!
