Day three of four featuring the songs for "Accordion Solo Madness".
I Was Brought To My Senses
Rendition: Mercury Fallen
Acc model: Corona II (Red)
Reed tuning: Dry, G/C/F
We performed this song at sound check a few times. I was intimidated by the sheer number of notes Branford Marsalis played on the album cut. I was also curious with what I could do with it. I practiced this song all the time trying to keep up; usually to disastrous results. My apologies to my hotel neighbors who had to endure that chaos.
Shape of my Heart
Rendition: Ten Summoner's Tales
Acc model: Blackhawk (Black)
Reed switch 1: Clarinet, E/A/D
Reed switch 2: Violin (Custom), E/A/D
Sting flirted with the idea of me playing this solo. Instead, Dom and Rufus had a wonderful guitar moment that became a highlight of the set. I thought I'd share how it sounds on the squeezebox. The chord structure is a bit different on the album then how it's played live, so I mixed the original harmonica with Dom's version.
Details for submitting your bracket and voting will be tomorrow along with the last two songs in the bracket:
March 18th: The Last Bandoleros
March 19th: Sting
March 20th: Sting
March 21st: To be announced
I'm having a blast making these vids. I hope you're enjoying them just as much.
