I don't think I've ever played a Take That song. I mean forget bass, just ever pressed play to listen to a Take That song
Carwash is my fave octave gay anthem
This’ll get your fingers going....
Whoa! I’ve always thought ”Carwash" as a commentary on life as an unskilled worker in the underclass. There is a non-cis character in the movie, of course, and one can let one’s imagination run wild about a group of young men spraying each other with hot, sudsy water, of course...
But maybe we’re thinking about different songs?
Yeah agree, but it's a huge anthem in the UK gay club scene along!
Wonderful! I’ll relocate it in my mental collection to be right next to “Aint No Stopping Us Now,” “I’m Coming Out,” and everything recorded by Sylvester and/or Two Tons of Fun.
God I find this style so difficult. It sounds cool tho! Have played "Miss You" by the Stones and "Ain't Livin Long Like This" by Waylon in a couple bands and I get worn out after like 16 bars! Eventually started juicing the amp and incorporating my thumb in a more "guitar fingerpick-y/banjo roll (kinda)" technique. Or the ultimate cheat is ONLY playing the offbeats
And another great exercise i made today.
Try (Don't) Give Hate a Chance by Jamiroquai. Great octave workout!
I find it challenging as well. I played Do You Think Im Sexy and it was painful. Recently I have changed to using my thumb on the bottom note, much easier.
