Re: Song Fight! has been in my life for more than half of it

Number of days Songfight has been a part of my life (estimating that I found SF at the start of the Space Cadet fight): 7638

Days I existed before I found SF: 9417

Looks like I have another 4+ years to go before SF has been in half my life. Feels closer than that.

Re: Song Fight! Live 2024 Musicians Exchange

I'm willing to offer my services to people. Want do I bring to the table? Some vocal chops. Chord based rhythm guitar fun. Good ol' roots and 5ths bass.

Re: Song Fight! Live 2024 Mountains and Melodies

Any ideas for a rehearsal space? I've been checking around and they seem few and far between. I'm gonna be in town for a while (I'm coming to Denver the weekend before for an event with a different online community) so I can scout in necessary.

While Brookes and I can do a two person version of LW/RG, this is a gathering of Songfighters so it might be more fun to do it with a full band.

FYSA, I may be slow in sending out "I got your song" replies as the wife and I are celebrating our 5th wedding anniversary out at Niagara Falls. So, don't freak out. I'll let you know eventually.

Re: Nur Ein XIX Round Four- "Crush Season"

Thanks PFJ for posting that David Bennett piano video (I highly recommend his videos). It definitely helps explain line clichés. I would also suggest these two videos because they also talk about chord progressions that same trick of holding a base chord and moving either up or down by semitones. Am...
