Hi everyone!

I was wondering if this would be the right place for me to ask if anyone would be interested in doing a (hopefully) simple collaboration with me? This is a song where a lyricist named Jonie Hajduk wrote the lyrics and I wrote the melody and chords (it was a creative challenge on the songwriting forum I'm on - hence the little introduction and speaking part at the end; a few others did their own musical spin on the lyrics too).



Chords - verses: Em - D - C - Am B7 - Em - D - C Am B7
Chords - bridges: Am7 D - C D - Am7 D - E
Chords - outro: Em - D - C - B7 Em

I want to make an mp3 recording version of this song but I don't have good recording capability for guitar right now. It's also tricky for me to record the guitar separately from the vocals because the timing is a bit free flowing throughout the song. And as you can see, it isn't easy for me to sing and play together!

Well, I was hoping someone who can record a pretty good quality track might be interested in recording the guitar instrumental for this! I can send the guitar chords and I'm hoping whoever does it could somehow use this video to help them with timing as this is how I would sing it. I'm very much open to the person adding their own creative spin on the instrumental piece too since what I have right now is pretty simple (because I just can't do anything more complicated)!

Well, please feel free to reply here or PM me. Thank you so much!

Janice

UPDATE: Thanks to Dieter for the great suggestion of putting the chords up here so people could experiment if they feel inspired to! I also added them below with the lyrics in case it's easier to follow that way! (hmm, I put spaces between the chords on the same line but when I "Complete Edit" they show up all bunched together. Help!)


Chastity (Game of Chances)
Lyrics by Jonie Hajduk
- guitar tuned down half step

Em

V1
Em
Chastity

D
Did you go to work today

C
Or did you go out and play

Am B7
Your game of chances?

Em
Were the trees still draped in gold

D
Were you sheltered from the cold

C Am B7
Beneath their branches?


Bridge
Am7 D
I see you in the park sometimes

C D
Altering your state of mind (mi-ind)

Am7 D
Shadows follow close behind

E
Never far--- away----


V2
Em
Chastity

D
Are you living in the past

C
In the place where hopes were dashed

Am B7
With such perfection?

Em
Are you dreaming you can win

D
On a wheel that only spins

C Am B7
In one direction?


Bridge
Am7 D
I see you in the park sometimes (sometimes)

C D
When you're there the sun won't shine

Am7 D
Not until you change your mind, oh~

E
Throw the dice away


Outro
Em
Chastity

D
Did you go to work today

C
Or did you go out and play

B7 Em
Your game of cha------nces?

Hey everyone,

My name's Janice and I'm trying out a 6-month subscription here at GMC. Just wanted to say hi and if anyone has some tips for how I could make the most of my time here, it'd be greatly appreciated. I only play acoustic guitar and know most of the basic guitar chords. I understand how to read tabs but I haven't practiced much and I also don't know many different strumming or finger-picking styles.

I sing first and foremost so the instrumental piece has taken a back seat so far, but I am starting to write my own music and it'd be helpful for me to be able to play better! (I'm coming here from The Muse's Muse Songwriting boards by the way, if anyone knows of it).

Well, thanks and hope to spend some time here in the community!

Janice
